    Food is solid. Popular and busy place. The front of house is run loudly and with force. Go along for the ride or there’s friction. Oddly poured our wine away from the table. How do I know it’s the bottle I bought.

    By far, the most amazing dinner I've had in ages.. Christmas Eve, crazy busy, I had the escargot, prime rib and a couple of martinis. The service was amazing... and they were slammed, and the food was out of this world! Even the mashed potatoes were over the top! No need for salt or pepper, everything was seasoned to perfection.. they even brought me a box to rest my feet on since I was at the bar, honestly, above and beyond anything I could've imagined. Show this place some love whenever you're in town, you won't regret it!

    This is my second time coming to Roccos, and a few months since my first visit. The first time I was at Roccos, I was the first customer of the day. Belle greeted my table and was just the SWEETEST girl I've ever met. Her service was actually impeccable and that's hard to come across. We enjoyed escargot and pasta dishes which were so great. The most recent time I was there was last week. They were absolutely slammed packed in the place (great sign!) and they truly were on top of everything. We ordered the escargot again because it is honestly phenomenal. Again, so flavorful and such a delicate dish. They really know how to make this dish specifically and the flavor is insane. We ordered risotto aurora for our main course. It's HUGE. my husband and I split and it was still a lot of food. The flavor in the risotto dish itself is explosive. The garnishing was spot on, and it was truly a burst of flavor in your mouth. Let's also not forget about the tres leches cake belles mama makes. I don't even like dessert but my mouth waters for this. BEAUTIFULLY DONE. 10/10 grab a piece of this before you leave. Great table service. The wait staff moves effortlessly and seems like they are all 100% on the same page. Being in the industry myself, we see restaurants that are missing out on this aspect of our dining experiences. Whatever they're doing to coach their employees, we all need to take notes! Belle & Rocco, you truly out did yourselves again. I cannot wait to come back and have the pleasure of dining with you guys.

    We ordered an arugula salad, escargot, the seafood pasta, and the risotto aurora. All of the food was great and reasonably priced. The salad was very fresh and the escargot was delish! Nice people.
