I thought my food was great, except for my dessert. I had the chocolate cake and felt like the cake should have been served warmed. Also, my husband had the braised pork and it was a little overcooked around the edges, but overall he enjoyed the dish.

We opted for a date night in Trinity Groves and went for Italian. We’ve been on the rooftop for late night drinks before so we decided to give dinner a try. Walking, hostess was reading a book; she saw us walked in and had a proper greeting and I informed her I had an OT rez and it’s like her eyes had to finish the last sentence in the book.. and then she closed her book and looked it up in system. Odd... We are seated and the service was great throughout- no complaints there. Now PASTA- I love. But here, I didn’t love. One would think with a chicken and mushroom cream sauce pasta- u can’t go wrong, right? Well it wasn’t wrong, but it wasn’t great. I asked for a sub of linguini pasta, I got it. I felt like it was pasta from a box and I wish it was house made. Maybe it was, but didn’t seem like it. My chicken was so bland, no flavor or seasoning whatsoever. My peas had more flavor than the chicken. And the cream sauce- just that. Nothing amazing. My date had the Rocco’s pizza, added sausage. His first bite, he said was burnt but realized it was just the outer portion. He said the sausage made the pizza and I’d say it was from the fennel; superb flavor to it. We wouldn’t recommend here for dinner but we would come back for drinks on rooftop again. Also, counted 3 bearded guys in the kitchen cooking, no beard net. Scary.

Really good Italian food and very attentive service. Thought the prices were too steep though. Nothing on the menu really qualified for the high prices. I had mentioned in my Open Table reservation that it was my mother's birthday, but the restaurant never acknowledged it. Good wine list, but they could offer more wines by the glass.

The dining room is very nice! We were seated promptly, but it felt like no one was assigned to our table, so we got off to a slow start. However, once that was sorted out, the service was very good, as was the food. We were going to the theater after, so were under a little bit of a time crunch, and the servers were very respectful and helpful in timing our meal perfectly.
I don't often choose Italian cuisine when considering dining options, but this was very good. I ordered the 6 hour pot roast for my entree, which was kind of unexpected for an Italian restaurant. It's served on a bed of couscous. I highly recommend it - it was delicious!!

Lovely atmosphere and attentive staff. The food was okay. Got a little bit too much pepper on my salad. I think the roof view on a warmer night would be fantastic. Experience was okay but definitely New York Italian feel. Fun location for sure!

We Loved Saint Rocco's. BIG flavors and ample portions. It was a party of 5 and everyone was delighted. These are OLD school rock solid Italian dishes. Rich and fulfilling without over doing it. Starting with a large loaf of Italian bread and a bowl of Marinara. The Sicilian Lasagna ROCKED and Chicken Marsala melted in your mouth. Topped with fun desert. The spumoni was a step away from traditional but so yummy. Gotta get back for the 2nd floor view of Downtown this summer.

This was our 2nd visit to restaurant, about 5 months apart. The first time we ate there were thought the food was terrific. Four of us dined and all ordered something different and were all pleased. Second time.... not so much. This appears to be getting ready for "take off" for expansion, as they have "dumbed" down the flavors in the dishes. Drinks are mediocre, though they have a special drink menu. Service was lacking. At one point after finishing cocktail and having salad. We sat for about 20 minutes without our glass of wine, bread or anything else on the table . No one stopped by once to check on us. Too many other options... won't go back.

We dine at Trinity Groves regularly and this was our first visit to Saint Rocco’s. Great NY Italian dining experience with good food. Our wait staff was knowledgeable but seemed to have too many tables. We went to the roof top bar after dinner and loved the view. We had to wait for a place to sit. With all that available room please add more seating. We will be back!

The food was great, the ambiance was good, the service was very good and the prices were reasonable. The only drawback was the noise level. We were seated near a large gathering at one of the larger round tables with a group of rowdy diners. If you are after a quiet evening, I would suggest not being seated too near the larger corner tables.

I was looking for a new place and was not disappointed. The Manhattan was well made and Roma salad very tasty. I did love Chicken Parm with Linguini. The linguini was phenomenal. The floor plan is very open which I like. Being able to see the kitchen/cooks somehow makes the food more legit in my mind. Unfortunately, the upper deck was closed so we could not enjoy the view but we definitely plan on coming again when it is open.

Overall this is a fair restaurant. There are many other places in Trinity Groves that offer better, quality food. However, it has a nice ambiance and is one of the few places on the district that you can sit down to a white linen table.

We are Italian and new to Dallas from the Northeast -- so we are especially picky about our Italian food. And unequivocally I can say this is the best Italian in the city. Honestly, no other places come close.

St. Rocco is impressively and reasonably priced for the level of quality and service you receive. If you want mediocre, low-end Italian, Dallas has plenty of places for you. But Rocco's is NY/CT/NJ quality and taste at a very reasonable quality.

We judge Italian restaurants in Dallas by this standard: if we were still in Connecticut, would we go back. And Rocco's is an absolute yes.

The Rigatoni and Linguine & clams are especially good. But we haven't had a bad dish yet. A somewhat smaller menu but they nail every dish. Plus a great vibe and energy to the place.

Came with the family for an evening meal before seeing "A Christmas Carol" at the AT&T PAC. It is a great location for events in Dallas. The atmosphere is outstanding, the service is very good, and fast as well, only surpassed by other pricier, 5 star restaurants. The food is also very good with reasonable portions. The prices are moderate making this an excellent combination
of service, price, location and quality. I would definitely give it a try.

 (New York Area)·Dined on December 16, 2017

Sadly, this plays into every Italian cliche' one can think of. To begin, the layout feels overly played - the adorning of red throughout every aspect of the restaurant. It feels as if it is too loud, and trying too hard, to be something it is not: genuinely Little Italy.

The food is, though, the biggest disappointment. The red sauce has little charisma, and is overly thin. While going for a more homestyle esthetic, it comes off as overly prepared. The base of their red sauce forms the majority of the dishes. And, because it is the centerpiece of the menu, it bleeds (quite literally) into every aspect of the menu. The pasta is not al-dente, and is overly blanched. The cheeses are not of the highest quality, and the appetizers selection is really disappointing. However, the chopped salad with bacon and blue cheese is notably good. It was, sadly, the highlight of the meal.

The wine list is decent, although rather simplistic. The categorizations of the wine are linear, with little to no context. Reorganizing the wine list would likely lead to better sales for the restaurant and a more enjoyable read by the diner.

Last: the staff and timing. While hurrying around, our waiter was not attentive and - at one point - asked if we wanted another drink. This would have been fine, except he took my wife's order then proceeded to immediately leave - without even waiting for me to respond. In addition, the table-turn rate is too high. This, ironically, happened on a night when there was not a lot of action waiting to be seated and the reservations had clearly thinned out on a cold and rainy weekend evening.

In short: I would never recommend this place. It disappoints on almost every vector one would imagine. The whole experience feels 'campy' and cliche'. Perhaps that is the point: play to the lowest common denominator. If that is the goal, it achieves this well. But, if it is in homage to "homestyle, Italian American" it misses the mark - badly.
