I read some mixed reviews on this restaurant, but my experience was excellent. The food was amazing, the staff very nice and it even passed my picky eaters kid test with flying colors. I had the cucumber and tomato salad, which was good but could have used some cheese and was too big for one. I also ordered the gnocchi... More

The cook burned my personal size pizza and said he would have to make another one. My friends all ate their meals. The restaurant offered me a slice of cheese pizza left over from the lunch crowd to eat while I waited. It tasted leftover. As we were leaving they brought my pizza out to take home. I expected they... More

Rocco's has the best hand tossed pizza in florida. The service can't be beat. They also make the best fried calamari I have ever had. The have all the traditional Italian dishes cooked to order. I would recommend you try their food. They also make a mean prime rib sub.

The atmosphere is very nice and and the service was excellent. Every time I have visitors from out of town we usually go there. The pizza is the best and everyone loves it also.

Our travel club consisting of 25 members gathered at Roccos for dinner. Our organizer made reservations in advance and we had a separate room. Melissa was the only employee taking care of us. She was wonderful, but she had to take the water, drinks, appetizers and food orders for 25 people. She also had to deliver, clean up, bring whatever... More

Great grilled sautéed veggies, a wild mushroom ravioli worth the calories, and many others. Groups, singles, couples, families. GREAT place for your vegetarian friends to get a real meal rather than a bland pasta meal.

Called in for takeout and picked it up. Once home after 35 minute drive, discovered half the order was missing. Called Rocco's and talked to Rodney. He said you can come back. I said take it off my bill, he said cannot do. So, they charge folks for food not provided and then say...tough luck. Do not recommend this restaurant... More

That was the first thing my wife said when we walked into Rocco's. The end building in a small plaza, you could tell walking up to the door that this is going to be something special.There's a small courtyard with tables near the entrance that must be very pleasant in the cool of the evening and when you walk in...

Hubby and I dined here one Sunday while visiting Crystal River. This place came highly recommended by the bartender at our hotel and we are so grateful for the recommendation! Everything was fantastic! I don't understand why this place doesn't rate higher among restaurants in this sleepy little town which needs MORE places like Rocco's. Everything was authentic Italian.
