Rocco's 22: The Restaurant from "The Restaurant": "In Reality, A Great Place to Dine" Almond Bar & Restaurant Tip by Dundooni

If you've caught the charismatic mama's boy, Rocco, his entertaining staff, and endearing mom on the Bravo tv show "The Restaurant", then you are probably a little curious as to how Rocco DiSpirito stacks up. Well, he absolutely does. Rocco's is a beautiful, chic restaurant with friendly staff and fresh, delicious food. The back wall is a unique beaded mural of the Italian countryside ... giving this restaurant class and culture.

Favorite Dish: Start out with the crispy and flavorful calamari ... it is lightly dipped in flour and sauteed to perfection. Then I recommend the "torchietti" pasta with fresh shrimp, pesto, and marinara.
