Modelling itself on a traditional osteria, rocco
is an intimate restaurant owned by local chef and restaurateur Marc Cupolo and his partner, Dan Richards. Rocco is one of the best places in town for simple, classic Italian eats. With just 13 tables, this restaurant is small and often busy, with delicious dishes like linguine with white clam sauce and tender sliced steak with Parmesan-creamed Swiss chard. This, combined with rocco’s exclusively Italian wine list, means you should probably make a reservation. Rocco specializes in gourmet pizzas; we recommend the calabrese with ricotta, oil-cured olives and Calabrian chili or the vongole topped with clams, garlic, pancetta, parsley and chili.
