This was a gem of a restaurant in the Mayfaire Shopping Center. We arrived without a reservation and sat in the bar. We were promptly served and the bartender/waitress was very personable. We ordered the Filet Mignon and the Grouper which is a fish I am unfamiliar with. Both dishes were so delicious, we were tempted to lick the plates.... More

Nope - go ahead and lick the plate! We are delighted to hear you had a great experience dining with us, twice. Thank you for your comments. We hope you will come back to see us the next time you are in town. More

Generally speaking, I have found small off the beaten path Italian Restaurants to be True Gems or major disappointments; Roko falls into the latter. White linen tablecloths speak to elegance, but the Wine List and Menu did not measure up. The wait staff was pleasant, but the small bar at the front was loud and the bartender kept raising her...

We are surprised to hear your were unimpressd. Many of our guests appreciate our homemade gnocchi and ravioli, and we were recently praised for our wine menu in a few local magazine articles. We would love for you to come back and try some of our signature entrees like the shrimp scampi, Flounder Ana or one of our veal dishes.... More

After reading all of the great reviews for this restaurant I made reservation for our anniversary. We arrived for our reservation at 7:30 and was greeted by the hostess/owner. She turned around and promptly began to seat us at a table which was basically sitting in the transition area between the reception podium and the main dining area. When I... More

This place was great. There weren't many people there which I think is because it was early afternoon on Halloween. The food and service were amazing. I'm not sure which entices me to go back more. Its a small place but it packs flavor into its dishes!

When five friends from Canada were visiting we planned on taking them to Roko's for dinner on the last night of their visit. We called on Tuesday night to make a reservation for the next night and showed up on time looking forward to a good dinner. To our great disappointment the person who took our reservation wrote us in... More

Have been coming to Wrightsville for years and just found out about this new small, intimate restaurant. Love their veal parmigiana. Great food, great service, make reservations!

When it comes to authentic homemade Italian cuisine, Roko consistently hits the mark on taste. My personal favorite entrees (I'm vegetarian) are the creamy spinach pasta with roasted side vegetables and the gnocchi with pesto sauce. Both are rich in flavor and use only fresh ingredients. The Roko salad is my favorite salad in all of Wilmington!! If you like... More

Roko has the friendliest owners and staff. Menu is one of a kind and best in town. Veal is hand cut on the premise. Pasta dishes are creative and the steaks are fantastic. Desserts are to die for! Best yet....the prices are affordable. Reservations are highly recommended.

My daughter and I came for dinner on a Friday night. We had reservations. It is a small place and I would strongly recommend reservations. We were promptly seated. Our server was excellent. He gave the specials of the evening. The menu is varied. I debated about a pasta dish or Flounder Ana but got the special Delmonico steak that... More

My wife and I had a lovely meal at Roko recently. Our service was good and the food was marvelous. Roko is a pretty upscale Italian restaurant on a side street of the Mayfaire shopping center. It’s a new place, but well-appointed inside with large photographs of Italy and nice banquettes. We started by splitting a Caprese salad, which had... More
