Wow! Where do I begin! You quickly realize that you have made an excellent dining choice the moment you walk in the door! The friendliness is most sincere and genuine! Small bar, friendly and professional bar tender ("tendress"). Excellent cocktails! Nice atmosphere. The food is absolutely awesome! Outstanding service from servers who obviously have your best interests in mind! We have eaten at Roko a number of times, and we have never been disappointed. As a matter of fact, each subsequent visit seems to "out-do" our previous experience at Roko! This restaurant is 'here to stay'. I would highly recommend Roko to those with a discerning taste in fine dining! Everything about Roko is on the 'positive' side of the rating scale!

We had the most wonderful dinner on Weds, Oct 24 celebrating two special family birthdays. We could not have had a better evening - great wine, great scampi sauce, great entrees and who can forget the tiramisu ! We love Roko and can't wait to go back

Nice Italian restaurant. Located in a mall-like area away from the downtown district. Had dinner on a recent Saturday night. The place was full and they seated us at our reserved time. The host, who I assumed to be one of the owners, came by our table and seemed genuinely glad to have us in the restaurant. All of our food was very good from a fish special to a veal dish to pasta and eggplant parm. Very reasonable prices. The pace of service was very nice, not too rushed, not too slow even on a busy Saturday night. Easily the best meal we had in Wilmington.

Went for dinner at this new restaurant. It is in a high end strip mall near our home. Don't let the strip mall location put you off, this is a great spot! Its a little hard to find look in the far left side of the buildings on the side road that runs along side the complex.

The service was excellent, plenty of staff and everyone chipped in to give us a great experience.

The food was excellent! A little warning, it is very rich. If you like rich you will be very happy, if not, most likely less. We had dinner and desert which was off the charts good.

The price was in the upper end but not too steep for Wilmington. In Wilmington we get over priced so so food, with OK service. This is the unfortunate norm, not so with Roko. Prices were in the $18 to $22 range, there were less expensive items on the menue. They had a $25 special which included wine and a number of courses, we thought this was a fair deal!

Try it you will like it!

Thanks for dining with us! It sounds like you enjoyed our Wilmington Restaurant Week special! We appreciate your comments about our servers and our fair prices. We work hard to rise above "the norm" at our family restaurant.
