The food is excellent and the service is even better. Everything from appetizers to deserts are good. Rocco is always in the restaurant and making sure everything is done right. It's a great place for an excellent Italian dinner.

Description
Proprietor Rocco Potami has opened a casual yet sophisticated dining spot as warm and personal as a family-run trattoria, with marble floors, golden-hued walls, warm woods, white linens. There's a cozy wood-paneled bar, intimate al fresco dining on a courtyard terrace and private space for special events.

Rocco's uses the freshest meats, produce, breads, special sauces and imported pastas that are the heart of fine Italian cooking.
The result is a diverse culinary experience, offering a taste of favorite dishes selected from each region of Italy.

The cozy bar features seats at the bar, as well as banquette seating and high-top tables. Live music enlivens the scene Wed-Sat evenings from 7:30 til 10:30 PM.
