This is good neighborhood pizza place - reminds me good pizza parties when I was a young after a sports game. The food is great but the atmosphere is better. If you are local to the area you do not need a review to convince you of this place. They also have a full bar for watching sports games.
Only warning - the 4 cheese margarita pizza has a very powerful unique taste. The cheese and garlic is a bit too strong. Everything else is very good.
When I emailed ahead to ask if they offered any vegan options the person who replied actually didn't know what that meant. I then explained that I simply wanted to know if they offered anything dairy or animal product free. The answer I got was short and felt somewhat rude. I was told that only their dry pasta was dairy free....????? Ok. For their prices and the fact that they sponsor tons of fundraisers I would expect them to know what is in their offerings. Very disaponting.

We went to Rocco's this evening and we were SHOCKED to see that our bill was more than expected. The pitcher of beer that was listed as $11.50 on the menu came up as $14 on the bill. We also used a coupon to get a Large pizza at the price of a medium pizza yet, on the bill the discount was $0.64 less than it should have been. So we asked to speak to Rocco, and we got the manager. The manager was less than kind to us and told us that the menu was ""subject to change at any time"" which is just outrageous! After about a minute of discussing this, she refused to discuss it anymore and left without resolving our issue. The service at Rocco's has never been good and after this experience I do not plan on ever returning to Rocco's.
Pros: The prices look good
Cons: They aren't
Just decent food, but they keep raising the prices.. Not the deal I was looking for.
Menu prices have not been raised in almost 2 years.....for the record.....from Rocco Biale, ownwer

Five of my family members and I were sick from their pizza! When I called to inform the owner, and he denied it, and I had to fight for a refund, of which I'm not getting the full amount of the meal. He was rude and never offered so much as breath of concern. What poor service! He really didn't care that we were sick. For a family restaurant, the owner sure didn't care that my family got sick. We've been going to his restaurant since it opened, and after that horrible night of the 5 of us being sick and after his apathetic treatment of me on the phone, I warn others of eating there. Food is not good enough to take the risk.
