We could not see the draw to this place. Only a few customers here at lunchtime (although it is DEC and off season). The places feels like a rickety trailer on stilts. Has a musty odor and they have only thick crust (premade) crust. Serving lady was very nice.

The service was extremely nice. The food everyone got was enjoyed by all. The lasagna was really good and a house special. Looking forward to trying someone new next time. Triple Forks Hunting

The pizza is average- certainly not old style NY pizza, but it was OK. Setting is nice, an OK place to get some drinks, a little something to eat.

The pizza from Papa Rocco's was very tasty and different than what I am used to. Must be NY style but I highly recommend it. Be careful that u make it home with the pie.

Definitely a good time. Gavin was great and did a great job at oyster shucking! The staff was friendly and the food was great. It's definitely worth visiting!

It's just not quality - or at least not on the night we ate there. We had an order of royal reds - which were terribly overcooked - the meat was stuck to the shells and very tough.
