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.

We called in a carry out order for pizza and a family size Caesar salad on our way back from Napa. We were told it would be ready in 45 minutes, that was it. When we arrived to pick it up, we were given our pizza and a family house salad. When we asked for our family Caesar salad, we... More

I really enjoyed the atmosphere of this place, but they could improve the variety of pizzas in their menu, there are only a few choices. They put too much of tomato sauce on top of the pizza, I'm not used to it.

For our business luncheon Rocco's provided 6 of their mouth watering pizzas and the rigatoni and meat sauce was fabulous. The pizzas were a variety of meats and vegetables. Again all were delicious, but it was the meat sauce that sold me as a destination not a restaurant. Great job.

What a restaurant and specifically what an interior! Specially the scooter overhead on ceiling. Just loved it. Loved their pesto pasta. I've never tasted pesto like Rocco's in my life. Would definitely like to visit whenever in walnut creek. Visited here in December 2014.

The night before Thanksgiving and the place was very crowded, but we were able to get a table after just a few minutes. By the size of the line for pizza I am assuming it is quite popular. I had linguini and clams in white winer sauce. It was loaded with clams and enough pasta to have another day. Service... More

Every time we have come here it is crowded and often have to wait a few minutes for a table...worth it. On one side a bar with tvs and tables and on the other side all tables. They are busy but very friendly, the service is very good and the menu is large. All the meals we had were good.... More
