Roccos NY Italian Deli and Pizzeria

We really like this little neighborhood Italian pizza place/deli/bakery tucked in a little strip plaza on the corner of Buffalo and W. Charleston and apparently so do the numerous regular customers we’ve spotted on our last three visits. We understand why, the food is great. They seem to do a little bit of everything at Roccos, take-out, dine-in, grocery,deli,caterer and a mini bakery-and they do it well.

Pizza is the real deal here. A genuine thin chewy crust comes with a tasty tomato sauce that gratefully has no traces of the dreaded corn syrup we abhor in pizza sauce. But while pizza may be the star at Rocco’s, the sandwiches are not to be missed. Generous portions of high quality Italian meats are served on chewy Italian sub rolls and make some of the tastiest subs we’ve had in Vegas (the large size is big enough to feed 3 people generously). The menu also includes a nice selection of pastas, salads, soup, stromboli and a few main courses that include veal and seafood. There’s a sandwich we can’t wait to try on our next visit-a soft shell crab and eggplant combo that really sounds intriguing.

A dozen or so small tables are perfect for casual pizza night or for waiting while your take out order is prepared. There are also plenty of Italian pantry staples and prepared foods on display to drool over while you wait. Don’t forget to take home a dozen of their lovely chewy almond cookies studded with pignoli nuts. They’re the traditional recipe just like the ones my grandmother made. Rocco’s is a gem!
