Rocco's is a hidden gem! The food is amazing and the flavors are all incredible. The menu combines South American and Italian favorites. The Paella, Aurora Risotto , Filet Mignon and Zuppa Toscana are divine. The ambiance is nice and perfectly lit. The serving staff makes you feel like you stepped into their home. Belkis is always ready to recommend a great wine to go with your evening. And the Tiramisu is life changing. Check this place out!

We loved our meals at Rocco's. Shared the ensalada Verde, with apples, craisins, and goat cheese. Delicious! We both had the Veal Saltimbocca, which was tender and delicious, and was served with lovely mashed potatoes and spinach. The sauce was delightful, and generous enough to put on the potatoes. Service was very good, too.

Enjoyed the Tuesday 3 sides special. My Ropa Vieja was outstanding & companion enjoyed the Lamb Chops. Lovely birthday dinner, great service by Joe & would return again.

This is a gem of a find. I stumbled across this place while shopping and luckily got reservations for the following week. We showed with little knowledge of what we could expect and was pleasantly surprised on all levels. This place was amazing! I am gluten free and surprisingly they had many great choices clearly marked on the menu. I didnt have to explain what "gluten" is - which happens all to often in mainstream places. I also didnt need to special order in order to "make" my item gluten free. I ordered the sea bass and it tasted like butter. Perfectly cooked and the presentation was fabulous. Wine was fantastic, great energy, and everyone was having a wonderful time. I will definitely visit again. That is if I can get a reservations...that can be hard to come by!
