Papa Roc's Italian Grill
Ranked #30 of 52 Restaurants in Cleveland
Restaurant details
Reviewed September 27, 2013 via mobile

Apparently, during the day, "Papa Roc's" is called the "Bean Counter." Stick to "Papa Roc's." It is a better brand.

The place has a lot of history. It was the old Rocconi family grocery store, and they would sell bootleg liquor to the locals when Mississippi was dry.

Unfortunately, the food is not very good. There have been Italian families in the Delta for over 120 years, but that doesn't automatically mean Delta Italians know how to cook Italian dishes very well.

The food is over salted, and they burned the bruschetta. What a shame.

2nd time we have tried this place. Italian seasoning used too heavily for my taste. Tried something different this time. Steak was over cooked. Salads were watery and over dressed. Got seated in the corner with no air or fans. It is August in MS so it is 101 degrees outside. AC just couldn't keep up. Ants kept crawling up my dress to my arm. Think I will stick to Backdraft. Much more value for the money. Everyone was very nice. Just don't think it is worth the $50
