Recently dined at Rocco's on a busy Sat. nite. Ordered a clam plate that was larger, fresher, cooked better and cheaper than any fish restaurant around. My date ordered veal parm and could not finish it. Was so good we took the leftovers home, which we usually don't do. Even on a bust nite our waiter Jonathan was outstanding. Did not rush us and was very polite and attentitive. Will be back
I had the steak tips and they were delish! This was my first time at the place and the menu is so extensive that I'm looking forward to my next few visits to this place. I saw that on Sunday's from noon to 5pm they have specials for 9.95 which included a salad and something else which I forget and a main dish, so I think this is the time I'll aim for next time! It's such a cozy restaurant and their drink prices are very reasonable.. so all things to make this place a regular spot.
I have lived in Wilmington for ten years and have driven past Rocco's a hundred times and always seen the place busy. Finally decided to give it a try last night with my wife and three little girls.
When we first walk in, the entrance is very awkward and dark. You first enter a small room then are led to another door that opens to the bar area. The place is dirty and dated. The Hostess was not unfriendly, but we did not feel welcomed. They put me and my three girls under 10 right next to the bar. I did not complain but wi=h I did since the regulars at the bar are blue collar guys having a few after work and using language not fit for 5 year old girls.
Our waitress, Jackie I think, was fine. She did her job well, checked in on us but wasnt annoying. We ordered drinks and a Calamari app. THe sauce for the calamari was bland, the calamari was obviously frozen. Not terrible, but lackluster. I have A chicken marsala special with mushroom torteloni. I don't even know how to convey just how bad this was. There was a bowl of grease covered torteloni topped with three super greasy breaded chicken cutlets. Ther chicken was cooked nicely, but the oil soaked taste was overpowering. The pasta was frozen and bland. My wife had stuffed shells. Tasteless anfd the mozzarella on top was not even fully melted. The kids had kids meals tha were the best part of the meal. Chicken brocc ziti not bad. Spag meatballs ok, bland. One had a hot dog and fries and it was what it was. Overall the chance of me going back is less than zero. Possibly the worst meal I have had in a long time.
Oh and by the way, that meal, 2 beers, and three sodas.....65.00. Could have had the same at Michael's Place for less than half and would have tasted much better. STAY AWAY from this place if you have anything resembling a grown uo palate. Judging by the rest of the crowd there, who seemed to be regulars, they do not.
Southern Italian Calzone with Salad, can't beat the price!
Tastes great and very satisfying.
Its tough to eat the whole thing.
Large menu with many choices.
Always seated promptly and the waitstaff is very cordial
I've been to Rocco's a few times. The food is always great and the menu is so big there is something for everyone. The clams are amazing, and the prices are so reasonable. It has been recently remodeled and is so cozy. Our server Scott was so informative and was very knowledgeable about the menu. Rocco's is our new family favorite.
