Found Uncle Rocco's by accident in 2010. Thank goodness! All of the other pizza places in Los Angeles that call themselves "NY Pizza" are not even close to being in the same league as Uncle Rocco's. It is REAL, authentic NY pizza. I don't know...More

As a New Yorker living in CA, I always look for authentic NY pizza. This place does NOT disappoint. Wish we had eaten Thanksgiving here as our Thanksgiving meal was horrible down the street! Anyway, so yummy! Wish we lived closer.

We arrived really late after going to sequoia national park and every restaurant was closed! So luckily we ended up buying to-go pizza in this place. We had the tomato and basil pizza, really good! The crust was perfect, not very big not very thin.
