Rocky's Italian Bistro & Bar
Excellent Service, Delicious FoodFour differen entrees were all delicious. Red Snapper perfectly cooked. Veal chop excellent. Our server, Stephanie, was a gem.
The only negative was a very pricey wine list. Some moderate priced bottles should be included.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMRocky's is a WOWwwwww!We often have dinner at Rocky's. Even though we live in Miami, this restaurant is well worth the trip. We had their fabulous Stracchiatella, with the goat cheese tortellini. I had their delicious huge portion of Shrimp Parmagiana--which was so delicious that I had to eat the entire, PLENTIFUL serving. My companion had their wonderful Eggplant Parmagiana. It was cooked to perfection. We had their scrumptious tiramisu for dessert. What an amazing way to end,-- an amazing dinner!! Then we stopped in the bar for a taste of the music, that Rocky spins on Fridays and Saturdays. The bar crowd was having a GREAT time. Hats off to the chef, Damian!! We think he is really Italian, because of how he cooks!! Dining at Rocky's is THE BEST!!!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time at restaurant andFirst time at restaurant and we truly enjoyed. We had 7:30 reservations and were wondering why so few people there, but by 8PM the restaurant was very busy.
Food was very good and our waitress made sure we were taken care of.
I would recommend to friends and plan on returning again.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMRocky's hit another "HOMERocky's hit another "HOME RUN" with their EXCEPTIONAL food, large portions, fabulous service, and great atmosphere. Remember to TRY their bread and their desserts. You will feel like you are in HEAVEN!!! We stayed to hear Rocky spinning his Sinatra, Disco and Motown music. The food was GREAT, the music was GREAT and we went home feeling GREAT. Go to Rocky's when you need a lift, and want to feel good. You'll leave there with your stomach feeling Happy and your emotions feeling REFRESHED and RENEWED. My compliments to Damian, the Chef. He cooks like he grew up in ITALY!!!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMReal Italian diningRocky's is just off the main drag, so it doesn't have the walk-by tourist crowd, and a table was ready immediately on Saturday night. It's a genuine Italian restaurant, and appears to be family-run. It has a typical old-style Italian menu, with some interesting specials as well. Excellent fried calamari and meatballs. The tables are very close together, so be prepared to be friendly with your neighbors. My only complaint is that the entrees come with no veggies or starch, if they're not in the description. Wish we'd been told that before ordering, so I could have had a salad. Kudos to our waitress for recommending a great bottle of wine that was one of the least expensive on the menu.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMI love the place, I love theI love the place, I love the food. The fish dishes are prepared to perfection. It is just too noisy with VH1 blasting in the background. There should be soft music playing instead of loud music from the 80's. This will not deter me from going but the music has to go!!!!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat a GREAT RESTAURANT!!!Friday night, at Rocky's is a TOTAL WIN!!! Their food is "addictive." It is THAT FABULOUS!!! Their chef, Damian, is a MASTER at his craft. And, after dinner,--they have a variety of music playing at the Bar, which, they also play, on Saturdays. So, after a very SATISFYING dinner, we were able to have fun at the bar for the rest of the evening. Rocky provides a "party" atmosphere with his spinning of Sinatra, Motown and Romantic music. It is the place to go for an evening of fine food and great music. And their wait staff is always accomodating and EAGER to please. They make you feel like you are back home, having dinner with your FAMILY. We go to Rocky's at least twice a month, even though it is an hours drive for us.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMRocky's Snapper LivorneseRocky's Snapper Livornese is the BEST I have ever tasted. Their shrimp parmagiana is another winner. Leave room for their ricotta cheesecake for dessert. It is so wonderful that I had to take an extra piece home. My only problem with the menu, is that EVERYTHING is sooooooo SUPERB, I sometimes have trouble choosing my dinner entree. The wait staff is very gracious and makes you feel like "your wish is their command"!!! Their music on Fridays and Saturdays makes Rocky's a fabulous place for dining and dancing. Those nights, the diverse music appeals to all kinds of musical tastes. It's a place where young and old can mix, and enjoy an evening of exquisite food/dining and great music!! You can ROCK at Rocky's.2/26/2013 12:00:00 AMI brought some "Fooodies"I brought some "Fooodies" from New York, to Rocky's. They said, "This is the BEST Italian restaurant that you have EVER taken us to." They are only here for one week and insisted on going back in a few days.2/8/2013 12:00:00 AMRocky's has EXCELLENT cuisineRocky's has EXCELLENT cuisine and you are treated like FAMILY. Our waitress, Stephanie, treated us like ROYALTY. Their chef, Damian, prepared Strachiatella (a soup) for us. It was the best we ever had. Their shrimp parmagiana dish is exceptional. Their salad is filled to the brim with delicious, healthy vegetables. Their fish dishes are wonderful. Their bread is "TO DIE FOR." We drive over an hour to get to this restaurant. I think that says it ALL!!

Their food is BEYOND EXCEPTIONAL, and their staff makes you feel like you are "FAMILY." This week-end I took a New York "foodie" to have dinner there. This person was extremely impressed with the authenticity of the food. He felt like he was eating in ITALY. Their chef, Damian, made a special request for us. He made stracchiatella ( a soup) that was the BEST that I have ever tasted. He added several tortellinis to each serving-- which made it EXCEPTIONAL. Everything I have tasted at Rocky's ( be it my dish, or a dining companion's dish) has been WONDERFUL. Rocky's ROCKS!!!!1/12/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is the third time I haveThis is the third time I have visited Rocky's. The food is great and ample portions for two people to share. My friend was a little "bent out of shape" as he felt the service was rushed. The wait staff was concerned and brought us some great desserts, coffee and sambuca.....GRATIS!!! This certainly will not deter us from returning again.1/2/2013 12:00:00 AMExceptional Restaurant!!I just "discovered" Rocky's a few weeks ago, and since then,-- I have eaten there three times. Each time the food was SUPERB. The chef, Damian, does EXQUISTE cooking. The waiters are very accomodating and eager to please. It is a 45 mile trip for me, to get there. But, each delicious, mouth-watering morsel-- makes the trip WORTHWHILE. I will be dining there again next week--with out-of-town guests. I want to impress them,--and this restaurant will accomplish THAT!!! The portions are plentiful and the prices are reasonable. It is a GEM!!!12/29/2012 12:00:00 AMNice place for italian foodWe really enjoy this place. We have been going here for years. It's not pretentious. Most importantly the food is very good. I had the veal chop sicilian. It was excellent. I would recommend this place for people are not interested in being seen at the latest trend restaurant.1/1/0001 4:00:00 PMMy friend had recommendedMy friend had recommended Rocky's because of TWO SPECIAL entities-- their spectacular FOOD, and their MUSIC, which is spun on Fridays and Saturdays. The music consists of Sinatra, Motown and Disco, and starts around 9 P.M. You can dance in the bar area if you desire. It is TRULY a "PARTY" atmosphere. Their music, along with their SUPERB food, make this restaurant a GREAT place to ENJOY a night out. This restaurant brings back memories of FAMILY-OWNED restaurants on Arthur Avenue in the Bronx, because the food is so tasty, plentiful, and like Mama used to make!!! You will feel like you are back HOME!!!!2/20/2013 12:00:00 AMRocky's ALWAYS serves up GREATRocky's ALWAYS serves up GREAT food. The ambiance is lovely.
