Rocco's Cucina & Bar
While in town, my husband and I wanted to find a neighborhood pizza parlor where we could enjoy a light dinner near the event. We wandered through the North End & only found high end white table cloth restaurants when we found our first pizza option near the corner of Hanover/Commercial Sts, there was a 1 hr wait to sit. Thank goodness we walked a little further and went to Rocco's. What a great cozy neighborhood place. We were immediately made to feel welcome and were treated to an expertly prepared pizza, fresh bread with olives and olive oil and decent affordable Merlot. Wait staff was quick, attentive and pleasant. We would definitely return & will share this info with others going to events at the garden.

Fantastic restaurant! Excellent food!! Will definitely recommend to friends! Cant wait to eat there again!!!
We ate at Rocco's with a party of four. Overall, the food was decent, and the service was good but the noise level made it hard to hear the people we were dining with (the restaurant wasn't crowded, but the TVs were turned up very high). It was also very cold every time the door opened.
Rocco's is a great find. Had been there once before but chose this place for my birthday celebration last month. Had a great meal, met Rocco and had great service. Loved the food - don't want too many others to know about this place as we don't want to have to struggle to get in but really recommend it.
We had brunch on a Sunday. No decaf coffee or cappuccino on menu. Maybe dinner menu better
Dinner before Celine Dion show at the Garden. Within walking distance which was important. Great varied menu, very reasonably priced, service (James) was spot on. Ambiance so quaint. We were worried about phones dying for show and we were able to charge both phones before dinner was done. Huge relief and so kind. Def will visit again.
Great food - Cozy bar. The noise level can get loud for such a small place but the food is worth it
Had a great Celtics pregame dinner. Great variety of food and drink, comfortable room with many TVs and really friendly staff. I'll go back.
Great local bar - staff is very friendly and well ensure that you'll be able to see whatever game playing that day. Upscale dive / sports bar vibes.
Had a great time. Met the owner, he is very nice and appreciative. Food was so good I could stop eating.
Everything was awesome! We will definitely be back!
Fine if you like your sport on large screens and need to shout over TV coverage to hear yourself heard. Less so if you’re there for food and conversation. Noise added to by being adjacent to busy road. Good for snacks and small groups propping the bar up and bar hopping.
The lobster ravioli special was amazing. The restaurant is slightly off of the main drag which meant we didn't have to wait for seating. Service was outstanding and we sat at a lovely table open to the street. The pasta prices are comparable to others in the area, which is not cheap. However, they had other options that were more affordable. I would definitely go again.
The service was excellent and everyone enjoyed their food. It was a nice night out and the windows were open so there was nice breeze.
Small neighborhood cafe/bar atmosphere. Was pleasantly surprised at the quality of food since I figured it was more bar like. Fresh in house made ingredients and food. Service was fast and pleasant.

Nice place to go before going into TDBank to watch a game, no crouds easy
Awesome food and incredible service. Very generous portions. Price was very reasonable and the atmosphere was perfect!!! We will definitely return!!!
This place is a cozy neighborhood dive bar. Great atmosphere, everyone was very friendly, we were there during the March Madness tournament this past weekend so it was a little crazy. The food was fantastic, we tried calzone, arancini, eggplant rollatini, pasta and lobster ravioli and they were all delicious. The service was great, we had a party of 7 and our waitress was top notch. I wish this place was in my neighborhood!
Fun night with good food and fun trivia. Nice location!
Was there twice last week. Thursday night was quiet. Saturday was a little loud. Service was excellent, friendly staffing provided an excellent experience. One complaint. It was a nice night and the widows were open, which adds to the ambiance. The smokers right outside the widow was not great. They should think about having smokers around the corner.
Good food and good service. Food was good but average for the North End.
Great spot for someone with Shellfish allergy- hard to find apps that aren’t fried in the same oil as the seafood -was able to enjoy Italian apps!. Small but cozy, great bar decor, draft list is minimal but good. Portions fits he cost. Great for a quick bit/drink.
We always enjoy Rocco’s. The atmosphere is very neighborly and the wait staff is always pleasant. The food is relatively unremarkable, but it is certainly acceptable.
Bland food, bad service.
Food was undercooked. Beer list wasn’t great. Service was ok. I wouldn’t go back.
We found this "OK" . They took a large party ahead of us that didn't have reservations and we ended up getting somewhat shoved behind them. Food was decent and good choice if you want to be just slightly off the beaten path of the North end crowds. Staff very friendly and attentive.
Dinner was most enjoyable at Rocco's, as the Gemelli pasta and chicken & broccoli calzone were delicious, and the service was most attentive. The calzone was large enough to feed three diners. We were seated at a terrific table near an open window, and enjoyed the harpoon IPA as well as a bottle of Pinot Noir. Prices are reasonable, and we had a wonderful evening dining at Rocco's.
Not as good as first time. Burger was over cooked and sweet potato fries were not edible. Steak tips and salad were okay. Won’t go back
Fun bar spot with great food, big tv's and nice big open windows. Service was great. Small place with tight seating but worked out ok. Lobster roll and wine selection were excellent.
We went there for my husband's birthday and were seated at a lovely table open to the street. Menu had lots of options and portions were ample. We joined Rocco's membership club to get points for return visits.
The map that Open Table links to has the restaurant in a different location. It was a
Bit confusing but we figured it out.
Sports bar atmosphere with tight seating.
Went because I couldn’t get into Regina Pizzeria due to a wait over an hour. Walked around the corner with my family to this place. Service and pizza were great! I was so glad I made the chose to change gears. I’d recommend it to anyone.
Big menu. Great specials. Fun waitstaff. Food was outstanding. The food we saw pass by looked wonderful as well. Much less crowded than Hanover Street options also.
Fantastic food and we had a great table by the open window. Very big portions. Reasonable prices. A varied and fun beer list from different breweries. Highly recommend the onion rings and the meatball sub. Great service. A lovely place with a fun comfortable atmosphere.
First visit - and won’t be the last! Food was excellent and reasonably priced. Our server was extremely attentive. Nice location and one of a few in the North End that has several TV’s should a game be on. We’ll be back!
Easy open table reservation, very slick. Enjoyed the ambience, great service, food tasty. Easy to walk to in North side neighborhood. We had a fun meal with our family and a friend who joined us, could hear each other talking which was important to us. Would go to this place again!
Food and atmosphere were great! Our waitress Annie was awesome! We will definitely be back!
The appetizers tasted great and the portions made them shareable. The fish and chips came with delicious onion rings. And easy to get to in the busy North End.
Highly recommend the Penne with Vodka Sauce. Delicious!!!
