When the owners are always cooking in the kitchen, greeting patrons, and often bringing the food out themselves you know they care about their food. The same wait staff have been there for years and that tells you about the family feel here. The food is so comforting and the portions always have me bringing food home for a great... More

If you have a taste for Italian, try Rocco's. Food is delicious! Neat drippy italian candles on the tables. Great Orriechetti (sp?).

Have been coming here for years and at all times enjoyed the food. Rocco takes great pride in his restaurant and is keeping the cuisine and ambiance authentic Italian. The atmosphere is warm and inviting. The restaurant is meticulously maintained and clean. Had my daughter's baby shower there and it was fantastic with great food, staff and accommodations.

Been here a couple of times now when I travel to Chicago area. Food is always good. Portions are large. Can never finish. Red gravy (sauce) is almost as good as mine!

Nuf Said. TripAdvisor wants more so . . . Go here! You will not regret it. This is our favorite Italian restaurant in the south Chicagoland area.
