Great food-worst waitress ever! 10/11/2009

Went in last night and had a great meal but the waitress was the worst I have ever experienced. Threw our menus on the table without a greeting, grabbed plates out of our hands, all in all a terrible waitress. Short brunette with blue-ish eyes may have been having a bad night but your in the service industry go home or just be nice. Wont come back anytime soon because of her. Just a horrible server, must be a terrible person to deal with. Pros: Pizza, cheese wedges Cons: very poor service more

Good Food 10/1/2009

I too have been searching for a decent Pizza place and for the west coast, feel lucky they are here. No its not like back home but its good. Other entrees are awesome. Pros: real New Yorkers/ family run/Great attitude more

Extra thin crust is the way to go... 7/7/2008

Me and my guy were back in the old neighborhood last week. Before we moved downtown Rocco's was our spot. It was Friday night and the place was jammed. The extra thin crust pie is the best around. Piping hot right out of the oven with mushrooms and basil. Rocco has my heart. Sorry i can't get there more often....Open downtown please Rocco.....We love you. Pros: Great Pizza more

Best Pizza & Customer Service 7/6/2008

Happened to stumble into this place by complete accident. I have to say the pizza was great and the atmosphere was absolutely wonderful! Loved the cold beer and GREAT customer service!! Very clean establishment! more

Fake food, fake blondes and a terrible waste of money. 6/21/2008

My boyfriend and I just drove back from Rocco's and before we evened opened our silver square (New York would never do square) to-go containers, we pact to never return to this salty slick excuse for a pizza joint. I am a NY transplant and have been on the hunt for a decent slice of greasy New York style pizza since I stepped off at LAX. I read reviews for Rocco's promising mediocrity at best, all I have been asking for, and we headed off to Miracle Mile to feed my craving. I loved the location, set amidst some taller (for L.A.) buildings and what looks like could be some mid-scale boutiques & restaurants. Red/white checkered & umbrella'd tables added the perfect amount of warmth to the cold crispness of this commercial district - like home. The smell of the pie crusting brought me back to Two Boots in the Village after a night at the Fat Black P*ssy Cat. But make no mistake. This is L. A. And you are reminded as such the moment you swing open the front door and are greeted, aggressively, by a tall blonde mess with a smile too fake even for this city, standing guard between the customer and the counter at all times. expanding the distance, LA style, between the consumer & the producer. Admittedly I kept trying to dodge her, I wanted to lean my stomach up against the counter and order my pie, I wanted to lock eyes with the cashier and hear him yell back to the flour covered pizza boy to start preparing my pie before wiping sweat from his forehead. But I was blocked by six feet of blonde frigidity shoving laminated menus in our faces. We ordered: Eggplant Parm., Chicken Fett. Alfredo, and a few varieties of pizza slices: BBQ, Suprm., Cheese. An 8 min. wait turned into 23. Not worth the extra 15 min. The eggplant was like cardboard, the alfredo sauce CLEARLY made from powder poured over cold purdue chicken strips, and the sauce was so salty it was barely edible. Thank God LA hasn't done away with the taco trucks, or we'd have starved tonight. more

Great place to go if you want to throw your money and time away. 5/21/2008

awful service, I cant imagine how anyone could not want to leave while being served rudely and disrespectfully. Food isnt all that great, too much greese and oil, no taste whatsoever. If they didnt skimp on the portion size then you might feel like you got what you paid for somewhat if you dont think about the horrible service. Its only a matter of time before this place is shut down due to better choices and MUCH better food elsewhere. HIGHLY recommend you choose another italian place to dine, and from the looks of the other bad reviews here you dont have to take my word alone to know that this place needs to go. Pros: Ill get back to you on that one Cons: Snobby waitresses, greasy food, prices dont match portion size, bad parking, no waitress or waiter to seat you, gumball machine takes your money and doesnt give you anything more

Awesome Food 2/16/2008

I was recently invited to this place for a super bowl party. I never even knew about it. The place was packed mostly with New Yorkers routing for the Giants. Being from Baltimore, i hate the Red Sox, so i quickly jumped on the BanWagon. Me and my friends had alot of fun, plus the pizza was great. I also had a Antipasto Salad, which was really good. Check it out, you won't regret it. Pros: Fun atmosphere Cons: Business district parking more

BAD food, HORRIBLE service, HIGH prices - Don't Go! 1/18/2008

I usually dont write reviews but in this case I had to, I love pizza and italian food but this place was simply not up to par in many areas. I noticed that people on here dont really review the food but rather that they liked that they had TVs to watch. Im not complaining about the TV's, but if thats the best a italian pizzeria has to offer thats pretty sad. The customer service was horrible and it seemed that as I watched the waitresses ""serve"" the customers and take orders (not at your table mind you, YOU have to go up to them) that they had a brown nose syndrome. The grease on these pizza slices are simply outrageous. My plate might as well have been a bowl in order to contain it all. I felt nautious just looking at it. Dont get me wrong I loves me some grease, but COME ON, I could have filled up my gas tank in my car with a pizza. If you want CHEAP prices, TVs to watch, and the same quality type of pizza as Roccos your better off going to Shakeys down Fiarfax. If you actually want GOOD pizza and italian food you go to Jonny's New York Pizza down Wilshire a few blocks. I have a few friends who also went to Rocco's and got sick from the food, so thats what prompted me to write this as well as the bad expierence I had there myself. Please, Im only trying to help you out, check out another pizza joint worthy of your money and loyalty. Pros: sadly, the only thing good was they had TVs you can watch - perhaps in hopes to get your attention off the horrible customer service and food. Cons: Bad service, neglected customers, chit chatty waitresses with other crew members, horrible greasy pizza, and just too pricey for what you get. more

Not gourmet or fancy, just good pizza 11/30/2007

Been here many times with my buds. This is the antidote to tiny, fancy gourmet pizzas of the Pizza Mozza, CPK types. Rocco's gives you big, greasy, topping-filled pizzas that just taste good. Nice staff and easy parking (at least at night). Worth a visit. Pros: Good portions, prompt service Cons: Maybe too greasy? (if such a thing exists) more

Good stuff 11/18/2007

Good pizza, nice staff --- really a great (and rare place in LA) to kick back, eat, drink and watch a game. You never have to deal w/ the hassle of a packed sports bar. Pros: Plenty of TVs, ambience more

3.50 for a slice of grease cheese pizza ? 10/27/2007

3.50 For a slice of cheese pizza? I was in there the other day, I ordered the ""special"", when I did the math, ordering the soda, side salad and pizza came out less if I ordered everything separately ? I asked them about it, they said ?oh we raised out prices as of last week ?Honestly, the food is not worth the money. The pizza was a slice of grease and the salad was overly soaked in dressing. The waitress did not seem to address my concerns and was too busy sitting and chatting some her friends at a table. The cashier guy looked to be either half asleep or high, I asked him about the prices and he could not comprehend a single word. Also if you plan on ordering ?take out "" the salad that comes with the ""special "" get stuffed into such a small container, you lose about 70% of salad compared if you order inside. As you can see this company tries to cut costs and jack prices with all the tricks in the book. I really wish the people there were more nice, All in all this Rocco?s Pizza on Wilshire Blvd turn out to be a bad experience every time, you are better off going to the Mc D?s next door. Cons: No parking, Rude Waitress, Over Priced Food, Mis-leading Specials more

AWESOME PIZZA, found them at the italian fest in hollywood 10/11/2007

i found them up in hollywood at the italian festival. apparently they are one of the founding restaurants involved in it. figures. their pizza was great there so i thought i would head down to the wilshire location to check it out. i was glad i did. me and my girl popped in on a monday night and who knew they had flat screens everywhere to watch the monday night football game. along with that they had pitchers of beer on special and wings too. so we had a thin crust tomato basil and some wings, free parking too, the game, i was in heaven...highly recomend it to couples, families, etc...i heard days are nuts there so it might be too busy then, but nights are really laidback and chill.... Pros: flat screen tv's, free parking after 6, great pizza Cons: packed with 9-5ers in the daytime... more

Wonderful Pizza 9/5/2007

This place is a gem! The pizza is wonderful and the service is friendly and warm. This is a place that you definitely need to check out! Pros: Delightful service more

My secret spot for pizza 8/18/2007

I recently moved to Los Angeles from Seattle. I was looking for a place was close to work. The last thing I want to do is walk around after eight hours on my feet. As we were walking by, we saw Rocco's. Not sure if it was pizza or Italian. We decided to go in. We didn't know what to expect. It's a quaint place. Brick walls. Checkered tablecloths. Comfortable seating. The place had tv's turned on to the game. A huge plus for a fan like me. Friendly staff. The waitress was friendly and helpful. We couldn't decide what to eat. I ended up ordering a slice of pizza and a salad. They have pizza, pasta, salads. A slice of pizza is $2 and a half salad is $3. Whole pizzas are $10. They can feed a lot of people. What we couldn't eat, we had to go. The prices are EXTREMELY reasonable especially for Los Angeles. It's a good deal all around. Which makes me not want to give out the place. If you go there, I guarantee you will not be disappointed! Pros: Food. Service. Location. Cons: Parking. Hey, this Los Angeles what do you expect. more

just greeeeeaaaat 6/13/2007

great place for pizza, pasta's, friendly atmosphere. i am straight out of brooklyn and lt me tell u. i have searched long and hard out her. i found this place when they were doing the san gennaro festival up in hollywood. fresh dough, forgetaboutit, real mozz cheese. real new yorkers making real pizza. with the BS attitude like some other NY'er's in this town. Rocco, keep up the good work, PS, go yanks beat the sox.... Pros: great pizza, can watch the yankee's there, Cons: daytime parking more

i've finally found an awesome neighborhood pizza place 6/6/2007

i've recently moved into the miracle mile area and thought i wouldn't be able to find anything decent to eat without having to deal with the grove and farmers market which i love but hate parking in. a friend told me about rocco's pizza on wilshire so i thought i would try it. i'm from philly and i would have to say i love the pie here. get it fresh, i recommend that anywhere. slices can be sitting around, they make an amzingly cheap 10"" pie here, also i just found out they do a thinner crust then the regular, kinda gotta be in the know about it, so ask for it, not as heavy and it's amzing with fresh basil and tomato. plus i watch all my games there. they got about 7 Tv's. can't wait or football season. cheap beer specials too. ooo, and the parking, free after 6 which is perfect for me, i work till 630 anyways, enjoy. Pros: great food, multi tv's, neighborhood feel, great service, great value Cons: daytime parking, daytime lines but they move quick more

Terrible Quality Pizza and Horrible Service 4/14/2007

the people who work out of this so called pizza place are very unfriendly and the food is not good at all, very skimpy on the toppings and freshness level of everything seemed very stale. Almost as if they left the food out over a few nights to mold. I really wanted to ask my money back after the meal but I simply felt ill and didnt want to stay another minute due to the quality of food. I have read some of the other comments that say the food is great but perhaps those are friends of the waitresses or chefs because to be honest I think these people who work at Roccos are very biased and have favorites when it comes to customers. Someone should really report these people the the Better Buisness Bureau. :( Pros: it won't last Cons: everything more

As close to NJ/NY pizza as you'll find in LA 4/10/2007

Rocco's pizza is by far the best I've found in my 9+ years in Los Angeles. It's as close to authentic New Jersey/New York pizza as you can get. Reminds me of home. Pros: Pizza, Price, Service (especially the delivery service) Cons: I've gotten fat, I've ordered from them so much more
