While I might be biased by going to this place for the last (35+) years I have yet to get a bad meal. And even better than the food is the staff... or in reality the Family that has been greeting and serving me for these many years.

The food felt like it was frozen and microwaved. The restaurant didn't seem impressive or very clean. I went multiple times and often the service was extremely slow (once had to wait 50min for order) despite the number of customers. The price was reasonable, but you get what you pay for...

Fabulous stuffed rigatoni with meatballs ... so delicious. All homemade and authentic Italian recipes. Small restaurant but quality food.

If you want a great plate of spaghetti, rigatoni, lasagna, ravioli, it's here and it's in the sauce. Four generations of hard work and feeding people they got it right. Nothing fancy but pay cash and get a full belly with a delicious meal. The best Italian sauce in the city and good people.

Went to Rocky's for lunch for the first time last week. It was superb! The service was great and the food was even better. I had a large serving size and it was plenty of food at a very reasonable price! I'll be going here again.

Rocky's is like going back in time. Think of grandma in the kitchen cooking. None of that Fancy-schmancy trendy stuff, just good old homemade Italian cooking! You know the place is good when see cops & judges having lunch here.
