Have only been once. And I don't see any reason to go again. The sub we had was not bad but Santini's in McLean has much better subs. As a New Yorker I am very particular about pizza. Pizza was average at best. While I would not call Rocco's a typical New York pizza, Rocco's pizza is way better. Overall... More

I live close to this location and have replaced another location (Santinis) with this spot as they have better and lower priced sandwiches. Recommend the chcken parm or meatball sub as they are excellent and very well priced there. Staff is very nice and the location is hard to beat for those traveling on Chain Bridge Road in Mclean. Try... More

BLAND. That is the only thing to take away from this experience. We had cheese pizza. Perhaps if we had piled the pizza with toppings it would have been better but the kids only eat cheese pizza so that's what we ordered. Despite the concentrated green spices nestled deep into the cheese, every bit of it, from the crust to... More

We order here for work take out sometimes, and it is always pretty good. I like the gluten free pizza.

It's okay for pizza but I wouldn't order another pasta dish from them. Although they have tables inside and outside, It probably makes sense for pickup or delivery. If you are in McLean it might make sense to go here. But it's not a place you'd travel for.

We had anticipated a good pizza, we were disappointed. The crust (thin type) was okay but that was unfortunately the best part of the pizza. We did a large pizza with two different toppings. Toppings were thin and uninspired, nothing to make us want to come back to try other dishes.

I had an excellent slice of pizza. Crusty on the edge. The place is basically old-style US of A, before Yuppie-dom set in. If you want the latter, Starbucks is more or less opposite. Mind you, we are talking McLean, so that kind of place but in a very Upper Neighourhood. Coffee is better than it would have been in... More

For does who know me, I'm a pizza lover and critic. I had the chicken alfredo pizza and salad dish that was recommended and I can't say enough good things about it. Must try place if your in the area.

They have pizza by the slice during the day. I've had their pasta and salads. I will often get their daily specials when they have it. Their salads are great and are a large portion. In fact, their portions are all large and can often be eaten by two.
