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.
Service, food and ambiance was outstanding. Will definitely recommend Rocco’s to others, and look forward to returning!
Everyone on staff and management were extremely attentive, helpful, and seemed genuinely happy that we were there. Food was superb, and service was extraoridnary.
The service was excellent but the food tasted like it was bought in the freezer section of target
My first time here, but certainly not my last. Small place, about 15 tables and a bar area. Full service bar. Wonderful staff. Some high tables and low tables. I had the veal saltamboca and it was as good as it gets and cut easily with a fork. My wife had the seared stuffed pork chop which was as good as pork can get and again...........cut with a fork. Our 3rd quest had risotto which he's still raving about 3 days later. Rocco's is a gem, a top shelf place withe delicious food reasonably priced.
We can't get enough of this restaurant, there's so much on the menu we still want to try. Can't wait to go back!
This is one of our favorite restaurants. We love this place! The food is great, every time. The service is always outstanding and the atmosphere is alive but still nice and quiet. The Risotto Aurora is righteous. It’s a great Saturday night place, great for special occasions or meetings friends for dinner! Truly outstanding.
I’ve been coming to Rocco’s since it opened and it continues to amaze me with its service and food. Rocco is an amazing chef that is willing to get to know his customers and more than willing to accommodate their needs.
Rocco's is a wonderful neighborhood gem. Each of us enjoyed our dinner and wine selection. The fresh pasta, steak, fish, meatballs were all very good. The restaurant wasn't too busy so we could easily have a family conversation and our server Chris was super attentive and kind. We would recommend a visit to Rocco's.
Every time is a great experience. It’s the perfect place to have a nice casual dinner or to celebrate a special occasion. Great food, excellent service and perfect atmosphere.
The Chilean sea bass special topped by a spoonful of jalapeño mango salsa was magnificent!
We were seated on a quiet side. The bar area was moderately noisy with young people enjoying the ambiance. I returned to Rocco's especially for their Vitello Saltimbocca. We were staying in the area, which is an hour's drive from home.
Rocco’s is one on my favorites in south county let alone San Clemente. I could eat there 5x a week!
I've eaten at Rocco's at least a dozen times, and think it is one of the best food and service combinations in the area. The menu offers great variety, so people I take there always leave happy as well. My one "gripe" is the beer list: Rocco should diversify and upgrade the beer selection to match the food.
We had Thanksgiving dinner at Rocco’s and it was delicious. Service was outstanding although it was a very busy time. Highly recommend this restaurant. The owners Rocco and Belkus are always so accommodating. Five star review. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Loved the atmosphere. Just loud enough so the next table cannot hear what you are saying! My veal saltimbocca was too salty, but the veal was tender!! The timing was great, we relaxed, enjoying each other's company and had a lovely glass of wine. I would definitely go back for drinks at the bar or dinner again (I would just send my food back next time if it was too salty).
Went there for Thanksgiving dinner and it was great. The staff was good and attentive. The food was excellent.
It was my birthday with friends from out of town.
The food was good, and the ambiance of the restaurant good. Our server was outstanding and added to our evening's enjoyment.
This local spot is the best! Great service, amazing food, it’s the whole package!!! Visit often ❤️
We eat at Rocco’s often and are always very pleased this restaurant. Great food and attentive staff that really makes you feel at home. Had the short rib for the first time and it was excellent.
Our server Joe was excellent .... great meal and service
Great food, good service, and nice atmosphere.
