We went to this place because the owners let us park in there parking lot when we were going for ice cream across the street. We promised to come back and eat, one of the best meals we had on our trip. Great pasta. Great friendly people, locals.

That's their slogan...... Not true the atmosphere here at Papa Rocco's is always a party. The Pizza is great and so is the meatball sub.

The pizza is average. The worst thing is that the beer is only served in cans. You would expect a pizza joint to at least have a couple of beers on tap or in bottles. Most of the patrons were there for some senior citizen special. Will not return.

The atmosphere is nothing special, but the food and service were both really good. When we got there it was not crowded and a waitress told us to sit anywhere. The chef/owner(?) came out to say hi and explain menu items and take our order. I think the waitresses were busy. The menu mentioned a special pizza of the week, so we asked what it was, and the chef told us there wasn't one but he could make us something like a double pepperoni or a cheeseburger pizza. When we told him no, we wanted one of their specialty pizzas, the Tuscany, he got excited and explained that all the veggies and pesto were fresh. The Tuscany had Feta, Sun Dried Tomatoes, Artichoke Hearts, Basil and Pesto. And it was really really good. My wife, sons and I loved it. We got it with the grilled chicken on half. It had such a great flavor and the crust was really good. It had a great hand made yeast dough texture and flavor. It was also a good deal. We ordered one extra large pizza for $20 and we took three pieces home. It's a strange but good little place… dive-y atmosphere, good friendly staff, a salad bar instead of normal dimmer, side or entree salads… and really good "gourmet" pizza. We wouldn't hesitate going again.

Warm Beer and Lousy Pizza, nice slogan, we found none of those on this night. The place was packed (last night for prime rib - must be good - lots of people were eating it). We had the pizza and it was some of the best we've ever eaten and the beer was cold. Service was very good considering the crowd.
