First, be sure to sit outside, or at least close to the street. Part of the good feeling one gets from Rocco's is participation in the Clematis street scene. Second, order the guacamole, because it is freshly made and served in handsome stone vessels that make you feel you are participating in an ancient tradition. Third, expect the food to be good and the portions generous, but don't expect creativity. We are regular patrons, and Rocco's can always be sensed on to deliver its solid food and ambiance.
