We were at Rocco's yesterday eve, recommended by owner of Ronak Cafe (also worth visiting, both on Gloucester Road). We very much enjoyed the food, unpretentious, simple but very good fresh Italian and we thoroughly enjoyed it in particular the starters, grilled aubergine with cheese...More

Cosy, relaxed, friendly, vibrating, and full of "rustic", unsophisticated atmosphere. Food is truly Italian, individually cooked dishes. Prices are fair and reasonable. The risotto was the best I have eaten for many a year. My grandson loved his cannelloni in its own cooking dish. Often...More
