Home of the official annual Brooklyn Pizza Eating Contest, Rocco's Pizzeria and Restaurant Inc., located in the heart of Bay Ridge, was founded April 15, 1980 by Rocco Loccisano.
When this neighborhood tradition first opened for business, Rocco's vision for the business was based on a philosophy that became the foundation for our success: to treat each customer as we would like to be treated. With that idea still in mind, his sons, Daniel and Joseph Loccisano today continue that neighborhood tradition where Rocco left off...
When you walk into Rocco Pizza on 5th Avenue, you are greeted as if you are a member of our family. While you are here, you will find a variety of more than 10 different types of pizza that are available by the slice. Each pie is made fresh by Danny or Joe using our family's secret ingredients. If you are looking for the freshest rolls or calzones, visit our display case located at the end of the counter. There are always 8 to 10 types of calzones and rolls made fresh daily.
Rocco Pizza on 5th Avenue also offers a full-service restaurant that serves southern Italian-style cooking, with anything from Calamari marinara over Cappellini to Caesar Salad. Rocco Pizza on 5th Avenue also ships pizza and calzones to anywhere in the U.S. and provides access to cooperate accounts. Rocco's also offers daily specials, such as lobster ravioli, fresh tortellini, and stuffed rigatoni. Red and white wines, as well as imported and domestic beers, are available to complement your dining pleasure. To end your gourmet feast, you can choose from a selection of desserts that are made fresh in Rocco's kitchen.
So, if you are looking for a restaurant where the food is great, the atmosphere is warm and you are treated like part of the family, just come to Rocco's Pizzeria and Restaurant Inc. Danny and Joe are waiting to welcome you to the family.
