I expected the food here to be halfway decent even though the restaurant looked terribly outdated. Service was very slow and the waiters and waitresses were very aloof. The bread was stale and burnt and the olive oil was served in a soup bowl with a spoon. I ordered the veal Romano and it was extremely salty, oily, and ultimately... More

Wonderful old country Italian restaurant. Host greeted us with the evening specials and was well versed with the menu. However, once he came to our table we were ignored for a long stretch of time while he and the hostess not only greeted regulars but sat down and chatted with them. Nevertheless once served, our Caesar salads were incredibly delicious... More

We always stop in Little Italy for a meal when we are in Baltimore. We usually try different places - and have never been disappointed. This place was like a lot there - a converted row house. A very cozy atmospere like you were in someone's home and like a lot of restaurants we have been to in Italy. Service... More

Rocco's in Little Italy is a dependable, awesome, restaurant for the food, the atmosphere and the "family feel" ! Never disappointed when we dine here, we always recommend this Italian fare to our friends. When using Groupon always note , they do notate close dates, and you do have to dine from the dinner menu no matter when you dine.... More

I was part of the party that is reviewed below. We stood for 45 minutes waiting for our reservation to be filled. Three of us were over 70. Four children in our party had not been fed and were not offered any snacks. When we were finally seated they said they would bring us some snacks on the house while... More

We met some friends here one night for a little get together. I had never been here before so I did not know what to expect. The place is very nice with a great comfortable atmosphere. I asked our server what was good to which he replied that the veal was popular. I ordered the Veal Marsala and I am... More

Not only did they NOT honor our reservation, they kept us waiting for our table for over 45 minutes with no apologies. They had a surly attitude when we asked how much longer the wait would be. Once seated, we waited over 45 minutes for our meal. The rims of our wine glasses were clearly soiled with lipstick smudges. All... More

We really enjoyed our meal here- feels like you are in someone's home and reminded us very much of our favorite restaurants in South Philly. The food was excellent- not heavy or greasy. I had the calamari and it was tender and light with a very fresh tomato sauce... My husband loved his chicken entree. wine was reasonable, and the... More

My husband and I would not come to Baltimore without our visit to Rocco's. This year my husband had the pork medallions in the brandy cream sauce with wild mushrooms, and I had a Chilean bass with tomato and tarragon sauce. We have our favorite little corner table where we have sat every year for about a dozen years (... More

I love Rocco's. We're not natives of Baltimore and have only lived here for less than three years, but Rocco's is our goto place. We've been to other places in Little Italy but NOTHING compares. The stuffed veal ALWAYS tastes like a little slice of heaven. This is a great place to take a date. The service here has always... More
