The family meal for take out is a great deal - 4 chicken parm, penne pasta with sauce, sauteed vegs, 2 mixed green salads (with chick peas, cheese, etc. with dressing) and a small loaf of bread with dipping sauce. I would recommend asking for the cheese for the salad to be on the side as you will be able... More

Four of us ate at Johnny Rocco's Italian Grill in St Catharines. We all love Italian food. Two people I was with are actually Italian. The food was good, service was great, our server was so nice. Drinks were priced better than the hotel we stayed at. Atmosphere was fun. Would definitely eat there again.

The food was good, the wine was great. The atmosphere was pleasant and the booths were very comfortable. We were not rushed by the staff. Very enjoyable to spend time talking with friends.

First, the hotel that the restaurant is situated is stunningly beautiful...the lobby anyways. The restaurant itself is also very charming. Waitstaff was nice and friendly. Booth was very spacious. My mistake was ordering a burger at an Italian restaurant. Skip the burger. The rest of the food looked really good. Portions were good and the prices were reasonable. I would... More

I went there this month with two friends for dinner. Not being too hungry, I only ordered the Italian wedding soup and the antipasto plater. The Italian wedding soup was Campbell's Italian wedding soup. It's a sad day when an Italian restaurant can't make their own Italian wedding soup. However, I only paid $4 for it, so I wasn't over...

Decided to go here for Mother's Day. The place was packed. Food was good, service was excellent. Started with the Rice Balls which are delicious. Meals ordered where the spaghetti and meatballs, asiago burger, eggplant parm and mushroom risotto. Portions are large, almost everyone had take home containers at the end. No room for dessert but the selections looked fantastic.... More
