With two locations across Winona (one at each end of town), Rocco’s Pizza is one of the city’s best known pizza joints. It first opened back in 1958 and is still family owned; the dough is homemade, and the sauce is still the original recipe introduced by Rocco himself. The restaurant offers take-out as well as the option to eat in, and diners can create their own pizza from a selection of toppings. A great spot for tasty Chicago-style pizzas.
