Always welcoming, always spotless, always delicious!
Nostalgic photos all over the walls, very interesting of days gone by. Large portions, lively, great spot for breakfast and lunch. Staff and service were very good.
Good food but not great. Very friendly staff, nice vibe. Let us sit and talk for a long time without rushing us, which was great. Big portions, lots of vegetarian options.
This restaurant is AMAZING!!! Extremely good value...I would have been happy paying more! The quality of the food was outstanding and the service was impeccable. The chef/owner came out for a chat and our table was well taken care of. We had a person with strict dietary restrictions and they made sure she had options available to suit her needs. I would highly recommend this restaurant!
Best real breakfast going! Can't live without it!
Excellent!! Was there for a business lunch and two breakfasts...fantastic food and great service!! Can't wait to go back!!
Excellent food, nice small place to grab a bite before the Giants game!
The food is awesome. One of those whole in the wall diamond in the rough kinda places.
Reliable, excellent dining. Took my spouse there, upon request, in order to get his favorite meal. I also have a favorite meal (Clams!) and as usual, a perfect result. Delicious flavor that stayed with us for several hours after our dining ended. We'll be back again very soon.
We love the place! Will go back .
Old style American Italian food.
Excellent service. Personal attention from the owner. Food was as I remember. Excellent deep fried polenta and calamari. Two of us had the house chicken piccata. One went for the salmon. Just outstanding and we all had to go boxes
A friend and I had already had dinner at Rocco's once and we had really liked it, so when my cousin came to town, I didn't have to think twice. The food is always great and the dessert (this time it was banana and coconut pie) was awesome.
Ecclectic neighborhood Italian eatery filled with historical photos
We had lunch of manicotti and chicken parm. Only drawback is limited parking with a free one hour limit. Fortunately for us, it worked out. Great blue collar restaurant!
I had been raving about the food at Rocco's for a while to people at work and decided to take a co-worker there one evening. We arrived just before our 6:00 p.m. reservations on a Thursday evening only to find that the power was out in a 2 block radius and they were not sure if they could cook. The chef decided there was still enough natural light for him to cook, so they graciously allowed us to order. EVERYTHING was amazing. My co-worker said it was the best linguini and clams she had tasted in a very long time. The eggplant and chicken parmagiana were outstanding. Not having power actually added to the ambiance and made the evening even more special. As we were leaving, the power was restored. I don't know many restaurants that would have accommodated the customer without power. It was an amazing night.
Rocco's is my go-to SOMA breakfast spot. The wait staff is incredibly friendly and their breakfast menu terrific.
This experience was great. The food was delicious,both my friend & I thoroughly enjoyed the cozy feel of the Restaurant as well as the smooth efficient & professional service! Oh,and did I mention friendly servers. We each had something from the appetizer sections,Steamed Clams & Grilled Polenta with Marinara Sauce,House salads & Entree specials.Grilled Petrale Sole & Veal Parmigiana which were great.! Healthy portions and TASTY!
A great place to eat after a SF Giants game!
My family and I have been coming to Rocco’s since I was a kid. This particular evening I brought newbies with me to check it out. I was so embarrassed =( The restaurant was just not happening at all. Wait staff was absent-minded and clumsy. Poured olive oil bread dip and soup on us. The food taste and quality was really poor. The Roast Beef was really burned black on one side, raw veggies, and fishy smelling/tasting sole piccata. It was a bad night. I felt bad for the owner. My first time for a bad experience. I’ll go back but I won’t bring newbies with me for a while.
Awesome, awesome, awesome! We were in San Fransisco on vacation and found this place by accident. It was a pleasant surprise. We loved the fact that it had been featured on Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives though we did not know that till we got there. It was a wonderful experience.
Well, now we're regulars! A big deal for us! No plans on diverting from delicious, fresh, made-with-love Brekkie now!!okay, I'm going to say it: Rocco's Rocks!😊
