We hadn't been to Florida since 2011 and have returned this winter for a nostalgic tour of everything we love. Rocco's is at the top of our list of our most favored restaurants.

Great atmosphere, the ceaser salad was delicious. The pizza crust was baked to perfection, and the topping were a perfect ratio and overall a phenomenal pizza. The staff was on top of it.

I read some mixed reviews on this restaurant, but my experience was excellent. The food was amazing, the staff very nice and it even passed my picky eaters kid test with flying colors. I had the cucumber and tomato salad, which was good but could have used some cheese and was too big for one. I also ordered the gnocchi... More

The cook burned my personal size pizza and said he would have to make another one. My friends all ate their meals. The restaurant offered me a slice of cheese pizza left over from the lunch crowd to eat while I waited. It tasted leftover. As we were leaving they brought my pizza out to take home.

Rocco's has the best hand tossed pizza in florida. The service can't be beat. They also make the best fried calamari I have ever had. The have all the traditional Italian dishes cooked to order. I would recommend you try their food. They also make a mean prime rib sub.
