This has been one of our go-to's for Italian in the city for years. With limited seating and an intimate setting, you get a sense of true and authentic tastes of Italy combined with a wonderful wine menu. I am a pizza BRAT, and this...More

Food was delicious and very hot (the way we like it). Service was great-- very attentive and not rushed.

If you want authentic, cooked to order Italian food paired with a perfect wine and served impeccably by friendly outstanding staff, come to Rocco! Home made pasta, classic Italian entrees, crafted pizzas. Periodically the menu travels to showcase different regions of Italy's food and wine.

My boyfriend and I went to Rocco for our anniversary. We had a 5pm reservation and the place was packed within a half an hour. It's not very big, so it was good that we had an early reservation. There isn't a lot of waiting...More

I come here when I want to reminisce about my travels to Italy, particularly in the Tuscan region. Great selection of Italian wines. The fresh fish specials are always good. The tomato sauce is excellent--not typical Italian-American fare. The gnocchis are light and fluffy--made with...More
