"Decided to try this place based on reviews. This is one of those local small family owned businesses that has been thriving in SOMA since the early 1990's. Restaurants don't survive long in SF unless they are doing it RIGHT. This is one of those "locals only but everyone welcome" places where you are treated like family when you walk in the door. Had a chance to visit with the receptionist and she recommended the linguini with clams in white sauce. Because I was alone, got to sit at the bar which overlooks the cooking area so I could see the care that went into each dish. Portions are generous, the aromas from the cooking area are wonderful. Prices are a bit higher than in the midwest, but hey, this is SF. Well worth the cost, no question. The linguini was the perfect "al dente" and the clams with white sauce were nicely spiced, not overdone, just good family style italian supreme comfort food. Definitely will return on the next trip to SF SOMA district."

"If you have business near the Moscone Center, Rocco’s Café is not far to go for some reasonably priced, homestyle Italian food. I enjoyed an ample dish of linguine with tomato, basil, and garlic topped with five large grilled shrimp. My friend and I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food and enjoyed the laid back atmosphere. The service was efficient on a busy Friday night. I will be back the next time I visit SF!"

"How does a homegrown diner/restaurant off the tourist path stay viable for 80+ years? Why, they embrace their place in history, provide a warm and inviting atmosphere, and deliver delicious food every single visit!
We've become nearly weekly visitors-remembered and welcomed and well fed!!

"Our group had several different kinds of dishes. It seemed the best ones were the pasta and polenta ones. We shared the desserts and they were fabulous. I had the best pecan pie I've ever tried. I would go back just to eat the desserts."

"Came recommended, and I was given good advice. Nice atmosphere, friendly service, unpretentious, my Chicken Piccata was terrific, melt in my mouth. Prices reasonable. What's not to like? Highly recommend."

"We asked a friend who is in the food meat supply business what is the best restaurant in San Francisco he said Roccos. We invited two friends for their birthday dinner on the way to taking them to the airport. Its a great stop for two reasons the portions are huge and they took a great doggy bag for their 12 hour flight. Everybody else was eating plane food and they would be re-dining on Roccos.
It is also a very quick trip to SFO We couldn't eat another bite as we ate so much and it was so delicious we declined dessert. The darling waitress gave them a piece of cake with a lit candle in a take out box with forks.
We met the owner and it was fun to find out he lived a block away from our guests. small world. Don was so nice and you can see he loves his restaurant. Loved watching his on line video.
Our guests own a part of several restaurants in Berkeley so it was such a treat to take them somewhere else that they would enjoyed, and had never heard of and they loved Roccos.
I would suggest the chicken marsalla with either gnocci or ravioli, grilled vegetables the red house wine and if you still have room for dessert the cake.
We all said this was the best meal ever."

"We saw this cafe on DDD and decided to put it on our to-do list for our upcoming vacation. When arriving at the restaurant we found seats at the counter where we could watch the team cook all the meals. The staff, the food...everything was excellent. It was a fun, relaxing lunch. We enjoyed it so much we went back again before we left town. Well worth the trip to Folsom Street!"

"I am new to SOMA and lived in the Haight for 13 years prior to moving to SOMA.
I am very glad I found Rocco's as it's truly a great neighborhood place! They have great food and reasonable prices, friendly servers and staff and take reservations even on busy nights. It's SF theme is great too. The only issue is when it's busy it can get a bit loud, but sit at one of the counter spaces if that is the case as it's quieter there and still you can enjoy their great food and specials.
I also wish they were open on Sunday nights as it'd be a great place to eat at as the weekend winds down. But I still go there all the time anyway, Check it out!"
