Rocco's is a fantastic pizza parlor with live on tv sports, live entertainment music, and bar. There are salads and spaghetti, not just pizza. Overall, great!

We arrive at 11:45AM for lunch, maybe six tables are occupied and there is no one at the podium to check us in, so my wife and aunt went to a table we had used before and sat down. I had just come back from parking the car and joined them, hailed a server who acknowledge me with a hand... More

This is a great neighborhood pizza and pasta place as well as a sports bar. It is very popular and usually crowded. They have great pizza, including whole wheat for the health nuts in my family. Their pasta is very good also as well as the salads. It tends to get noisy, but has a nice atmosphere. Good place for... More

Absolutely loved this place! We were greeted by the owner on arrival. He's so hand-on - that's what I call customer care. Though it was a busy evening we were seated quite quickly. Did I mention the place was super busy? Yup. The whole place is lovingly decorated in Italian themed memorabilia, (think Pinoccio) and the large plasma screens help... More

I almost always order take-out pizza and call ahead. It's always ready and waiting by the time I get there and I get a discount on the pizza because of the little tag they gave me to keep on my keychain. I usually order a medium Dominator pizza which has everything but the kitchen sink. Olives, mushrooms, onions, ham, patronize,... More

The only saving grace on this visit was the continuous loop of Italian movies projected on the wall before our table, and the La Dolce Vita Vespa suspended from the ceiling. It did not make up for the rudeness of the servers and sloppy, mediocre food preparation. When extremely slow service and late delivery of an entree was questioned, a... More

Heard this was a good pizza place and Italian restaurant stat served gluten free dishes. 2 people in our party have dietary restrictions so we decided to try it. The atmosphere reminded me of down home pizza place back in Chicago. They have a pretty extensive wine list along with a full bar. There a few pasta dishes and sandwiches... More

The food was surprisingly really really good. The portions were huge! The pizza was impressive (this coming from a girl who was raised in NYC). The service was great despite how busy they were. They accepted a reservation for our party of 11 only 2 hours before we planned dinner. Definitely stop for a bite if you're in the area!

The first thing you notice when walking into Rocco's is the smell - it just smells like pizza. The next are the guys behind the counter tossing the pizza dough into the air and across their bodies - just like in the old days. The third thing you notice is that the pizza is consistently good. They have a variety... More

Pizza is very good, I tried Pizza Pesto Genovese and Pizza with mushrooms and sausage! I'm Italian and this is the only place, with a good pizza, who I found here in the East Bay so far.
