This was our first visit to Rocco's. We were warmly greeted by Rocco, I presume, and opted for a table in the main dining area, away from the bar. The menu was well-rounded and the wine list offered a very good selection at all price points. The kitchen seemed a bit slow although it was a Saturday night and unhurried... More

I had read great things about Rocco's, but never ventured in, until last night. My daughter and I had a great time and enjoyed the food and service. We started off with the Fritto Misto Alla Ligure. The calamari, shrimp, zucchini and red peppers were lightly floured and fried to perfection. The sun-dried tomato aioli was a wonderful accompaniment. For... More

First time at this place on Valentine's Day and had high expectations. Didn't get seated for 20 minutes WITH a reservation. Our order was messed up 4 times and we were still charged full price. I am very disappointed for it being a high end restaurant.

The food is excellent and the service is even better. Everything from appetizers to deserts are good. Rocco is always in the restaurant and making sure everything is done right. It's a great place for an excellent Italian dinner.

I would give the food and ambiance each an A. Since the Zuppa Del Giorno was $11.95 (yes, $11.95 for soup), we decided on salads. I had the Caesar salad while my wife had the Insalata della Casa. Both were very tasty. For entrees, my wife had the Vitello al Marsala and I had the Linguine Frutti Di Mare. Both... More

Rocco the owner and Walter the chef were outstanding, food was great. We had the mushroom apps, then we have shared a tortelli pasta and a veal chop which was outstanding.... More

We visited this restaurant for the first time, for dinner with my family. Good surprise for the casual atmosphere, with live music. We were quickly attended to and sat down, near the bar count the music was played softly. Our waitress took care of us professionally and quickly. Delicious food, our orders were not delayed, and came out as we... More

Truly enjoy visit to Rocco's, food was very good, variety met everyone's tastes. We were group of 6 and reviews from all at our table were more than happy. Bar has nice setting and great stop for pre-dinner cocktail. Piano/singer were a bit retro but it did not negatively impact dining/dinner experience. Entrees were very good and I will definitely...

Description
Proprietor Rocco Potami has opened a casual yet sophisticated dining spot as warm and personal as a family-run trattoria, with marble floors, golden-hued walls, warm woods, white linens. There's a cozy wood-paneled bar, intimate al fresco dining on a courtyard terrace and private space for special events.

Rocco's uses the freshest meats, produce, breads, special sauces and imported pastas that are the heart of fine Italian cooking.
The result is a diverse culinary experience, offering a taste of favorite dishes selected from each region of Italy.

The cozy bar features seats at the bar, as well as banquette seating and high-top tables. Live music enlivens the scene Wed-Sat evenings from 7:30 til 10:30 PM.
