Three friends went for lunch on a Saturday. It's a fairly small place with one server for the lunch group as well as a large private party in the other side of the restaurant. In spite of being run off her feet, she did a good job of taking care of us, except for a couple of minor hiccups.
Great selection of lunch items and super reasonable prices. The portions are huge, the veal sandwiches delicious, Caesar salad fresh and crisp.
Only sorry that I live so far away, it would definitely be a regular spot if it was closer. Can't wait to go back and try some of the other choices.

Eye opening contrast to the spit and polished manicured restaurants everywhere. Rocco’s is a good old fashioned down home trattoria that’s largely unchanged over the last 3 decades. Our friends have had Rocco’s as their go to hangout for just that long. When Rocco is in the kitchen there is no place better for italian. Portions are huge gut busting meals that can put you in a food coma unless you pace yourself. A wonderful vibe, friendly service and a place we want to go back to often.

The food was perfectly cooked and presented. Even with the bad weather and one staff person they made us feel important and were able to briefly chat and make us feel welcome. We will be going back soon.

We have been going to Rocco's for over a decade (maybe longer) and the food, service or wine options never disappoint. Most recently we brought some business colleagues to Rocco's on the way into Downtown and they were all blown away at the food.

Last minute dinner decision brought my little lover and I to Rocco’s.

Not too happy with service from previous lunch date on Islington ( food never arrived after an hours wait) but Rocco was very attentive to the issue during an evening dinner on the Queensway location later in the day. He was actually appalled at the situation and offered our dinner for free but we refused as we knew this was an exceptional circumstance.

Back again tonight for our usual amazing service from Ocsanna our server and food quality uber good.

Seafood penne so rocked it and the wine was superior in quality and price.

This is the Rocco’s plum tomato we know over and over again. If you’re a red wine Somala
then the Ravens wood Zinfandel is a definite choice.

Thank you again Rocco. We know the standard is always primo of Toronto’s Italian venues.

Food quality - 10
Service - 10
Venue - 10

You will not be disappointed as a regular or visitor to Toronto Italian venues!
