Our table shared a pizza and all had individual meals as well. The food is priced accordingly and the service was fantastic. We had an opportunity to talk to the wife of Rocco at the restaurant. She was amazing to listen to. You must visit Rocco's when you are in South Bend.

Two Completely Different Experiences. The first time that we went to Rocco's we had a good experience (4). We got the pepperoni/beef pizza, which may or may not had been the difference. Tonight, we give the place a 2. We ordered the Rocco's Combo, which had a burned and soggy crust mix and undercooked veggies. The food left such a... More

As an ND Alum, I have many fond memories of Rocco's. The pizza is still delicious! This time we had the pleasure of taking our son and his Sorin dorm friends. It was a great time for all.

I have been going to Rocco's since I was in high school. The same family still runs it and does so with the same wonderful quality that Rocco and Juli brought from Italy. The thin crust pizza is simply the best along with the house salad. But order the pizza anyway you like and that's what you will get. Pasta... More

We went here for the first time based on recommendations from others at work. We picked this over our go to Pizza in South Bend (Barnaby's) and while we were not disappointed it was not better than our favorite. The place is crowded but service was very good. It is better than most but still probably won't go back.

. . . which means don't plan on getting in on home football weekends. Go sometime in the Spring or summer. The Italian food is decent but the menu is "American Italian." Lots of red sauce with meat. Rocco's is known for its pizza, which I think is decent, not great.

Plenty of places close buy that are much much better. Try Sunny Italy or Carmelo's both blocks away.

Excellent pizza and pasta in a cozy family atmosphere. Not only is the food delicious, but each time we visit we're treated like family. If you're a fan of Notre Dame, you'll enjoy the memorabilia that is displayed on the walls too.

This is the best pizza in South Bend. Love the cozy, family atmosphere. A South Bend Notre Dame landmark. I highly recommend to dine in or take out. The owners are so nice.
