The food, prices, quality, and service were excellent
They have a TV which kills the vibe. Food is mediocre. This is not a high end restaurant.
Wonderful evening - double birthday celebration. Highly recommended.
Great service and food was terrific.
We always enjoy the evening at Rocco’s. The food is excellent!!
The noise level was too high, but not as bad as many similar restaurants in the area. Sound deadening would help.
Don our server was wonderful and professional. The portions and food were excellent. My only complaint was the noise level. Better accoustics would be a suggestion to help with this problem.
Great menu and variety of dishes. The service and food was outstanding. She had the House Salad & Pumpkin Ravioli. I had the Caesar salad & Pasta Pescatore. It was the best of these Italian dishes that either of us had had in years. Absolutely amazing. Intimate setting and atmosphere for a date or great conversation and food. Thank you!
Everything was great
When we arrived our table was ready. Our waiter was great! He knew the menu very well and had great recommendations. The wine selection was just OK. The food was delicious! The restaurant was very loud; however, it was Friday night at 6:30.
I give them 5 stars. Thought they would want me to check all 5 boxes and it won't let me change it.
Our group of 5 came to Rocco’s ready to chow down, we weren’t disappointed!
Group’s favorite appetizer was beef tartare-delicious, simple, perfectly seasoned preparation on arugula-the beef was rough cut, not mushy, and very tender, with excellent light dressing. Entrees were generous-my sea bass portion was large , cooked skillfully-outside had delicate char, inside was moist and tender. My friends were very happy with their entrees-filet mignon, papardelle, chicken Marsala.
This restaurant emphasizes uncomplicated but skilled cooking, which lets the high quality ingredients speak for themselves.
There is no hard liquor served, but there is a small well priced wine list-every wine can be had by bottle or glass. Service is friendly and efficient. Overall, Rocco’s is a neighborhood gem that I’ll seek out again next time I’m in San Clemente.
Although not advertised, I usually go for Tuesday dinner special, 3 courses for $20. Some choices are better than others. Home made soups and Caesar salad, YUM! Braised short ribs are tasty - I've had them 3x - but tend to run salty. Chicken Marsala - deli' - can be salty, too.
Amazing food terrific service! Will be headed back soon
Really nice restaurant, amazing food, friendly service and a great Negroni.
Good food, nice ambiance....would definitely recommend and return!
The food is made to order and arrives uniformly hot and tasty. Rocco's special of home made gnocchi with artichokes and arugula in a vodka sauce was outstanding!
Food was excellent as was the service. especially enjoyed the stuffed artichoke hearts. Servings were well proportioned
Everything from the food to the service to the ambience was good, but nothing was truly noteworthy.
We went on a Sunday about 5pm......nice place......UNTIL......a family of 5 local drunks stumbled in and sat at the bar.......drooling all over themselves and getting the full attention of every employee there. Our service was pathetic. First time there and last time there!!
Bob had Chicken Marsala and he said it was the best he had ever had. For a change, I had Vitello Saltimbocca and it was so delicious, I want to return soon and order it again.
Food and service was wonderful.
Belle, one of the owners took great care of us as well as her other staff. All of our food choices were spot on and delicious. Great drinks as well.
Great menu with wide variety of choices. Excellent friendly and attentive service. The quality of the food is excellent. There is a full bar and wine list. My only criticism is the wine list is limited.
Our server was Chris. He was such a great waiter. Very personable, helpful snd very attentive. The meals were great and the zucchini soup was amazing! We are repeat customers.
Great food. Great ambiance. Great service! We always love eating there!
I took my sister from Maryland to Rocco's last Friday and had an excellent dinner served by an outstanding guy named Don! What a hoot he was! Very attentive to our needs and made some great recommendations for dinner. The food was fantastic, but, we didn't plan well and we were too full for desert...Next time!!! It was pretty busy that night, but everything came out hot and was done just right. Lots of restaurants in town, but Rocco's stands out!
We totally enjoyed our meal. The food was really great!!! The service was wonderful. The only thing we noticed is the noise level gets higher later in the evening. Which is why we start earlier.
I love the overall atmosphere of the restaurant it was very relaxing. We had a private table in a corner of the room so it wasnt as noisy as if you were seated near the bar. The food was absolutely amazing, especially the crab cake appetizer it was big enough for my partner and I to share. I would recommend the oven roasted salmon filet the way it melts in your mouth! Our waiter made us feel right at home as if he was a friend hosting for us. They were always prompt in noticing when our water glasses were getting low and constantly refilling them fast. We recieved our entrees and appetizers in a very fast time. Our waiter was even kind enough to remember we were celebrating a birthday and added a candle to our dessert which was a nice touch. Will definately be back again!
A great place for dinner! We highly recommend the Love Cup!
The food was delicious and the service was outstanding. My only concern was they were out of a few items. More specifically Bluecheese for the filet and Ahi. The Ahi I can understand but the bluecheese? Maybe a quick run to the grocery store was in order... With that being said, this is an amazing restaurant.
I love this place. Food is beyond great. Portions are good. Service is friendly and fast.
The food was amazing, the service was great and the whole dinner was fantastic. The only problem was the noise level.
We had a great time!
Rocco’s is a hidden gem in San Clemente. The food is always good, especially the hame made pasta. We also really enjoyed the Caesar Salad with anchovies as well as the special, creamless, cauliflower soup. The atmosphere is very attractive, current, but not stuffy and formal. Our server Eric was very personable and checked in just the right number of times without being annoying. Put this restaurant on your “to do” list.
Love eating here! The risotto is always delicious! My dad finally branched out and tried a new dish, the seafood pasta, and that became his new favorite. It can get a bit loud but worth it!
This was our first visit to Rocco's and we will definitely be back. Very, very good food and service.
Rocco's is a great San Clement gem. The environment is friendly, the service is consistently good and the food is delicious. Their menu items provide a very nice variety of chicken, fish, pork and beef dishes with an Italian flare. Always a great venue for delicious a meal in San Clement.
We've dined at Rocco's a number of times and it's always a very enjoyable experience. The service is very friendly but not in an excessive way, just very nice. The menu is great with many wonderful options. My wife and I enjoyed two different veal dishes that were excellent. The atmosphere is great--very warm and quiet enough that you can have a normal conversation. My only quibble is that the wine list could use a few more choices. Definitely a place we will continue to go back to.
Excellent food and service!
