Excellent lobster dish! The food is delish and was so nice to get out. Will definitely come back again! My new favorite!
Fine dining and great service with the friendliness of a neighborhood restaurant.
Awesome service and food is amazing!!!
First time there. We were seated with no plates, napkins, and silverware. Even after we were given bread. Then, it took 30 mins to get our food. That said, it was a busy night, so perhaps they were just slightly overwhelmed. Also, I took a drink of water and ended up with a large hair in my mouth-disgusting. Even so, the food was amazing and the waiter was informative and friendly.
Great menu, solid execution on the food. Super friendly service. We will be back to try more of the menu. We are glad we found Roccos!
Cuisine was exceptional. Service even more so (our server Jason was the best)!
Food great, server was busy, under staffed. I can't blame them, but that is how it was that day.
I did do reservations. They did have a table.
I’m thrilled that they are open for inside dining! I’m sure that’s why it was quite loud.. so few places are open right now!
This restaurant has a bar in the middle of the restaurant with twenty patrons talking loudly at the bar. There was no effort to social distance and nobody in the restaurant was wearing a mask. The waiter put one on in order to come over to our table. It was just like there was no pandemic. The food was much more expensive than the two star rating but it was prepared nicely.
Amazing food and service. Music was load with a rowdy crowd. Not a great first date venue but still the food is the reason to be here.
FANTASTIC WINE SELECTION. HALIBUT WAS INCREDIBLE! PENNE W SAUSAGE WAS OUT OF THIS WORLD.
Excellent food choices and preparation. The appetizers are off the hook and the entrees are perfectly presented. Risotto is the best ever so be sure to check it out.
One of the best places to eat in San Clemente. Worth giving it a try.
New Year’s Eve dinner, always a great experience at Rocco’s. Friendly employees and d cells that food will bring us back again and again. Already looking forward to next time!
Great food, Great people !! Very happy.
It was good and this business handled their service well especially during COVID. I recommend going!
It was my birthday celebration and it was wonderful. Our server was very friendly and attentive - the food was excellent and plenty to take home and enjoy again the next day!
Two couples were from Oceanside and one from Laguna Hills and we all agreed we would return to Rocco's again and again. Super choice for any occasion! Thank you!
Lovely people and great food!
Very good food! Service was a bit slow but that was because staff was limited due to COVID. Overall, would definitely recommend to anyone and will be coming again!
So glad we chose Rocco's to celebrate my birthday.
Great food, great service, great people.
Friendly staff! Great food! Authentic environment!
Really enjoy dining at Roccos! Service is friendly and good and the food is always good! Short Ribs are great and the fresh seafood (salmon and halibut) are well prepared. Just a nice mix of salads, soups, appetizers and entrees with a good cocktail and wine selection. Love this place....
Truly a gem in San Clemente
Grate staff. Excellent menu grate choices to pick from.
Haven’t had a bad meal there. Great menu, great food, great service!!
Exceptional food and great service! Especially loved the pumpkin ravioli!
The service was great! We love this lovely place.
I love the food and service at Rocco's. We love to go there for special occasions. The only negative is the noise level. Don't know what they could do about that and it is a problem at most other restaurants too. If you haven't been there you should try them out.
The pork chop is off the charts! The selection is great. We will definitely be back.
This place is always amazing. The Food is the best!
Food was excellent and the service was outstanding. We will definitely be back!!
Rocco's is a wonderful restaurant. Very friendly and efficient service. Interesting menu with a wide variety of choices. Paella is excellent! One of our favorite places in San Clemente.
While the menu had great variety, I was unimpressed with the preparation of several of the dishes we ordered. Some things just didn't taste very good. Pasta was overcooked and tasted too much like Chef Boyardee. The pork chop was overcooked (dry and tough) and whatever the sauce was, it was really acidic which didn't go well with the goat cheese stuffing. Saltimbocca also overcooked. Plating of our entrees was very sloppy. Our reservation was later in the evening and yet the lighting was still bright and harsh. Service was fine, but the mediocre food overshadowed our experience. Unfortunately won't come back.
The filet was perfect and was perfectly matched with the pinot noir.
Awesome food and awesome staff. Will definitely be back.
Had a small, 5 people, family Birthday party. Great food, friendly service and nice ambiance. All in all a very nice family evening.
Great service and food, good value.
The good that Rocco's provides is always exceptionally delicious, beautiful presentation with a feeling of being in a home with friends enjoying dinner.
Bella and Rocco always have a smile as they truly enjoy their work and giving you a great experience in their restaurant
Highly recommend to visitors and locals...this is a gem
The back room for large parties would be better if the table was round. It was loud and noice bounced off the walls and the wait staff goes in and out, not to mention the people using the bathrooms. Very difficult to have a conversation. But love the food and service always.
Service was excellent and the food was outstanding.
Highly recommend trying the paella.
First time visit but not the last. Small restaurant but very good food and outstanding service. Everything we tried was well executed. Corkage was reasonable at $15. The menu was mostly Italian with a couple of Venezuelan items; the owner's wife is Venezuelan.
