Rocky's is like going back in time. Think of grandma in the kitchen cooking. None of that Fancy-schmancy trendy stuff, just good old homemade Italian cooking! You know the place is good when see cops & judges having lunch here.

I must have Rocky's every time I come to Rochester, NY. No one makes the tripe like Rocky's!if you want authentic Italian family style dining one needs to look no more. It's Rocky's or nothing as far as I am concerned!
