Dropped in here for a couple of slices during my recent visit to Santa Barbara since it was near my hotel (The Harbor View Inn) As someone who has travelled a lot and has eaten my share of good NY Style Pizza, I can say that Uncle Rocco's ranks right up there quite respectably in that department. There seem to... More

Good place to stop by for enjoying few slices of pizza with friends ... the crust for the classic pepperoni and cheese pizza is thin but the taste is very good! You have many choices of pizza ... they most likely will have your favorite or will make it for you the way you want it !

I've been living here for 2 years and it's the best pizza in the area. We tried many others but continue to come back again and again.

As a New Yorker living in CA, I always look for authentic NY pizza. This place does NOT disappoint. Wish we had eaten Thanksgiving here as our Thanksgiving meal was horrible down the street! Anyway, so yummy! Wish we lived closer.

We arrived really late after going to sequoia national park and every restaurant was closed! So luckily we ended up buying to-go pizza in this place. We had the tomato and basil pizza, really good! The crust was perfect, not very big not very thin.

Pizza by the slice. Hot and fresh. Not cheap-good. Sports TV. inoffensive music to my ears. Tasty. There isn't much to add, pizza, beer, wine, simple, fast good

Yes, the slices are $6 each for pepperoni, but they are very big slices. Pizza lacked any real flavor, sauce was bland, cheese seems not 100%. But it is "NY" Pizza in California, so that in mind keep your expectations low.

So one of the benefits of living on the east coast and not the best coast is they have great pizza. Great NY style, thin crust pizza dotted all up and down the eastern seaboard. Where as the best/west coast (I grew up in SD) has the best Mexican food and burgers and beer, and wine and beaches, and vibe... More
