I have always been reluctant to go to a restaurant that serves Southern Italian cuisine. My mother makes the best sauce I have ever had. However Rocco's sauce was the closest I have ever had to my mother's which is the highest compliment I could...More

Good reviews encouraged me to try this place out, and it was, overall, a pleasant experience. My group was seated in a charming booth alcove that was private & comfortable. I was less enthusiastic about being served pizza with a charred, leathery crust that required...More

The restaurant was quite attractive however the noise level was very high. Being such a small place they needed to be efficient and manage their tables and time. This resulted in a number of surprises such as their request to order all at once, they...More
