Best place to go before the RBTL ! Amazing food, great service only 8 minutes away from RBTL. Support a small local restaurant #Rochester

The restaurant wasn't fancy and wasn't too clean, but the service and food were decent. The bread was fresh with a nice dipping oil mix. The stuffed shells were tasty, with a good cheese-sauce balace. The green tomatoes were well prepared, not too oily. Meatballs weren't bad, but not the best. Would have given a 3.5 stars if i could.

We recently went for dinner at Ringtones Rochester NY on Lyell Avenue. This establishment has been around for many years, but has new a new owner and an AMAZING Chef as of 6 months ago. Everything we had, from the delicious bread with incredible dipping oil, to our house made cannoli for dessert was fantastic. We chose our entrée's from... More

If you LOVE authentic Italian food you will love Roncone's. It is now open Tuesday-Saturday 11:30am to 8:30pm. Located in the heart of Rochester on Lyell Avenue. Chef Jimmy Paulino makes every dish to order, so fresh and delicious. From the homemade soup to the hand-stuffed Cannoli’s...Amazing!! Looking for a place that is open on Thanksgiving? They promise a home... More

Came here for lunch with small kids and husband. We were well taken care of by our server and was checked on by the manager. No complaints. Menu was small but classic. Kids ordered the spaghetti and meatballs. Plenty of food. We tried the tripe. Good to try new things but too chewy for us. I had the pasta special... More

My dining companion was in the mood for Italian cuisine and I hadn't been to Roncone's in over 30 years, so what else does one need for motivation!? Roncone's has been the "go to" neighborhood restaurant for Italian food since 1937. I was amazed at how the restaurant has changed over the years. What I remember as a somewhat tired... More

Went there on a Saturday for lunch after driving by it for years. It was worth the wait. The calamari appetizer was excellent. I had the rigatoni with pork & sauce. Huge bowl and perfectly cooked. Sauce is closest to my wife's homemade version that I've ever had. Nice old school Italian mom & pop joint for a great change... More

Yes, we had heard it closed, but that was short lived. We had a great meal last night and the service stood out for several reasons. Chicken Zingara was the meal of choice for both of us. I was sitting at a seat where i could see the cook in the kitchen and he knew what he was doing. Our... More
