“Great Little Place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

Moved in across the street from this little gem, I love it and when they did not have my favorite drink they quickly brought it in. It has its growing pains but this is definitely a go back and back and back

“Home cooking at its best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

We had a fantastic time at this place. The dishes were cooked really well and the service just perfect. The atmosphere is relaxed and very cosy. A great find to go chill....We will go there again and again. This is a great find......go enjoy. Its not a typical high street and not for snobs.....if you want honest italian food without the snobbery than this place is perfect.....not for culinary snobs. The price was just right ....

“Nice cozy spot by the lake...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

I used to get the flyers in the mail and I was curious, so I went there for dinner and it is a very nice spot right by the lake, good for a nice walk after. The staff is very friendly and informative. The food was delicious, served hot, and in a good amount of time. You also get free bread, but what is nice is that you get a small dish of a variety of breads. The only complaint is that it is a little cramped in there when it gets busy, as I noticed the wait staff having to manoeuvre in various fashions. This also creates a fair amount of noise in the place.

“Consistent but could be better”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013 via mobile

I have been to and ordered from Rocco's several times and each time it's good. They are consistent in many ways!
This time we ordered take out and tried the Sole Fish. It was delicious! After trying most things on the menu I have to say that's the best dish!
However, I wish they would offer some eclectic dishes that I couldn't get at just any Italian restaurant.

“Below Average”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

Went for dinner with a small group of culinary students and a teacher. We were not impressed. The food was average at best, non-inspiring and salty. The location is less than desirable unless you enjoy looking at condos and the highway! Prices were high for what was served, one guest had the osso bucco, one two inch diameter piece which came on a spoonful of risotto, cost over $20.
