This place is fantastic. You can get some traditional Italian items but many are fused with Spanish/Latin influences. Delicious, delightful. Great ambience and service. Cannot wait to return. Had the special which was a halibut with a mango chutney. To die for. My companion had the filet mignon fettuccine. OMG - delicious. Desserts are fantastic too, had tiramisu and their chocolate soufflé was perfectly decadent and light at the same time. Also had the eggplant appetizer which was a like a caprese on grilled eggplant-yum!! Seriously, it was a delightful meal and experience. Don’t hesitate to come here.

Food was really fresh and delicious. For desert we had tres leches cake and a choc lava cake for desert. Eric our waiter friendly, excellent waiter. Definitely we’ll be back.

My Husband and I entered this restaurant and waited to be seated. Three bartenders looked at us
several times so did the waitress. No one seated us. After a few minutes we left.

It was a Monday night so the restaurant was not very busy...save a few very loud patrons at the bar. Had the burrata and the Calabrese as starters...they were on point. Tried the Filet Maxwell for main...it was good...not knock your socks off, but good. Overall a pleasant dining experience.

This was our first time dining at Rocco's. We were with our elderly parents and needed a quiet table. The staff could not have been nicer or more helpful. Our waiter Don was absolutely terrific, and made our night. The food was delicious too! We're coming back for sure! Thank you all for making the evening fabulous!

Friendly staff, will definitely dine there again when a special event comes along (wife’s birthday). Only thing negative was the time it took to receive our order. But the food was GREAT!

Restaurant is usually a bit loud, however on this night it was especially hard to carry on a conversation as there was a large party nearby yelling across the table to each other.

A friend of mine who lives in San Clemente recommended this place. It’s her top 3 restaurants in the area. Great food, great desserts and a great small place to meet friends for a meal! Parking is not so easy, but that’s every beach community!

Rocco's is always a great experience, we have never been disappointed going there. Wednesday nights are special veal dish nights and they did not disappoint with outstanding Veal parmigiana. Excellent food, fantastic service and reasonable prices.

Rocco’s is one of my favorites! As an area local I have a rotation and they get my casual wine and counter time as well as the special occasions and out of town visitor biz.

The place is pretty noisy, but the staff accommodated our family and put us to the side in a somewhat separate room. The service was excellent and food very good.
