Went to Osterio Rocco for the first time ever with friends. Would place it among the top five restaurants in the area. Enjoyed many of the dishes mentioned in other reviews: succulent pulpo to convert the wary to octopus fans, wonderful home made ricotta over...More

Many good items on the menu for dinner, but my favorite is the pork chop. its huge so go hungry or expect to bring some back. For lunch on Frida, the porchetta sandwich is tasty, moist, and with burnt ends, is unbelievably good.

Food was delicious and very hot (the way we like it). Service was great-- very attentive and not rushed.

If you want authentic, cooked to order Italian food paired with a perfect wine and served impeccably by friendly outstanding staff, come to Rocco! Home made pasta, classic Italian entrees, crafted pizzas. Periodically the menu travels to showcase different regions of Italy's food and wine.

This is the best place to have dinner in Rochester, hands down. If you really like food, you should be eating here. There are a couple of other good restaurants downtown, but since we live in the "suburbs" if we come downtown we feel we...More

I have always been reluctant to go to a restaurant that serves Southern Italian cuisine. My mother makes the best sauce I have ever had. However Rocco's sauce was the closest I have ever had to my mother's which is the highest compliment I could...More
