It's been several years since our group has been here and not much has changed.
It's about time the seat covers were changed.
We've had a lovely young lady waitress, pleasent and helpful.
Serving sizes are still generous.
The older woman needs a bit of a humor transplant, but I guess being a hot Saturday evening she's struggling.
A number of us have had the Angus steaks, all have been cooked correctly and are of good quality.
Side salad is a good quality, lots of leafy greens, a bit of feta and various additional bits.
Deserts were spread out over a long period.
They took the paperwork away and did not bring any with desert.
All deserts were good.

As a first course we ordered the soup that was recommeded by the waitress. As a vegeterian, I asked if there is no meat in it and she said that there is not. When we received the soup we noticed the meat floating in the soup. After showing the waitress that there is meat, she said that she had a mistake. Which does not help for a vegeterian getting meat for dinner.
For second course was the vegeterian spaghetti. As big as the dish so the disappointment. Not mch to recommend

When there for dinner Had the garlic bread and condiments pretty good.Then had the spaghetti marinara sauce lacked body and was on the sweet side ,but large serving. Would go again but would choose a different dish.Red sauce needs body for my taste .

Had a fantastic dinner with great friends and food. We had some many good things about Rocco's we wanted to experience it ourselves. We enjoyed a beautiful three course meal and were not rushed which enhanced the whole experience. Fabio made sure we were well attended to. Had to try two of the signature dishes and wasn't disappointed, we will be back.

Entering Rocco was a bit like stepping back in time, loved the booths, white cloths, beams, hanging bottles (including some jeroboams). We were casual dinners and had not booked. Service excellent. Food great, very tasty, plentiful servings. Wine list could be improved with more 'by the glass options' but I was happy. Lastly the art on the walls . . Just added to the whole ambience I love the juxtaposition of Italy and New Zealand on this piece.
