“Average, dependable choice”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

Family had lunch here because other recommended restaurants were packed and we were too hungry to wait. Food was average, service average, atmosphere was a bit on the dark side and dated.

“Very authentic”
Reviewed June 14, 2013 via mobile

After reading some of the reviews, I was hesitant to go here, but one of the couples with us had been here before and insisted we go. It was very good food! I had chicken Marsalis because the waitress recommended it and loved it. . One had the cannoli and he said it was very good. Three had the lasagne and liked it. The salad was good as another reviewer stated.
The negative is the cigarette smoke that hits you when you walk in. That was not appealing at all, but when I commented about it, they closed the door to the bar and that helped a lot. Waitress was very friendly and fast service. We did not have to ask her to refill glasses or more bread. Food arrived quickly and was very hot. I was impressed.

“Average non-chain option close to Branson landing”
Reviewed June 1, 2013 via mobile

Rockys seems tired. The food was ok. They do give an excellent pour on a glass of wine. The pasta was bland. Look on trip advisor for better options close by.

“Gut the place and start over!”
Reviewed May 26, 2013

Poor service, understaffed. Too many plants, and clutter in the restaurant.
Not a clean place, and the place has no flow. Very compartmentalized! I will never come back.
Save your money, and frustration!

“Must have been a cool place once”
Reviewed May 23, 2013

It any endeavor it is always a pleasure to see professionalism demonstrated… the waitress -- Jackie was a star and staff were awesome

and that is where it STOPS

The place was soiled , the upholstery on the chairs stained and dirty.

The foot unimaginative and dull.
Been to wonderful italian eateries round the globe -- this was not one

Neat location and grand history --- needs a chef and a cleaning

The joint is tired.
The wine was OK.
