The pizza there was great because it had great toppings and sauce. I had a garlic pizza which tasted great.

Rocco's only seems like it's been there since the dawn of time. A Notre Dame pizza joint that throws a good pie and still makes you feel at home.

Small, family owned Italian and Pizza Restaurant. Rocco's is a South Bend tradition. The wait is sometimes a little long, but the food is definitely worth your wait. We take friends and family here when they visit from out of town.

This pizza place gets lots of buzz. Taylor Swift has been here, and left an autograph hanging on a wall of the restaurant. Say no more. But the food: the pizza is as good thin crust as you'd get anywhere; it makes your mouth water when it finally gets to your table. The pizza is great with any toppings on... More

The kids wanted pizza so we decided to try this place based on other good reviews I read. We are so glad we did! First of all, it was like stepping back in time! I felt like a kid again walking into a restaurant built and decorated from the '50's and '60's! I enjoyed reading about how the family history... More

Went late one night - last ones for the evening! The owners and staff were so nice, and the food (pizza) was excellent! Need to go back just earlier next time!

Rocco's is a sure bet for casual, family oriented Italian cuisine--mostly pizza or pasta. Casual, noisy, busy, but moderately priced, large portions, and a friendly, family atmosphere. Not for formal dining or a quiet evening, but a great spot for before or after a game, campus visit, or school activity. Rocco's has a dedicated and regular local clientele and thousands... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by a Notre Dame alum. As we pulled up to the restaurant, I loved that it didn't look fancy...those are usually the best places. :) Be sure to read the history of the family and the restaurant...very touching. Busy on a Friday night, but we were seated quickly. Very much a family atmosphere. No... More
