First time at Rocco's on Saturday night; great independent restaurant, clean, great pizza, friendly service. Only issue I have with this place is it's location; it's in South Bend Indiana, and I live in Toledo Ohio!

Latest visit was takeout. The pizza is the best in SB, hands down. Prices very reasonable, friendly staff. Very casual, good for all types of visitors, but maybe not so much got tomantiv candlelit dinners. In summary, a great place

In a wonderful, fun, old-timey atmosphere, delicious pizza is served with extremely tasty salads and cannoli. DON'T MISS IT! Tip: Check the hours before you go. They're not open at 3 PM.

Our family went here after a performance at the Morris Theater. Our daughter wanted Italian. It was pretty good, but not great. Nothing to rave about but nothing to really complain about, either....

No. And Rocco's takes an extended summer break every year. Be sure to call ahead if visiting in summer.
