Rocco’s Pizzeria, a charming Italian restaurant, is nestled in the heart of Exton, Pennsylvania. With award-winning pizza, Italian and South Philly cuisine, and its old-world-inspired wood burning brick oven, Rocco’s brings “Un Tocco D’Italia” (a touch of Italy) right to your table. As a young child, Frank Natale (Owner) grew up on the mountain-side of a small town called Nusco, very close to where the Neopolitan pizza originated in Napoli. In the mountains of Nusco, there was not much opportunity for an ambitious young family and so his parents moved to the United States to find better living. Soon after, they were able to bring Frank and his brother to America. Throughout high school and immediately after, Frank worked in several different pizza shops all over the Delaware Valley where he found his passion in cooking and pizza making. Some of his first experiences also included working with Patricia’s (his wife) father and uncle. With his experiences and fond memories of pizza from Napoli, Frank and Patty together moved back to the Montgomery/Chester County Area where they opened the doors to Rocco’s Pizza in 1984. Realizing that Rocco’s was becoming more popular, Frank renovated the pizzeria in 1997 making it more accommodating and introducing the wood burning brick oven to perfect his Neapolitan pizza recipes straight from Napoli. Starting in 2002, we also introduced several delicious pasta dishes to our armamentarium pioneered by one of our chefs and owner Frank Natale.
“It’s all about the adventure…The pizza is just grace.”
All of the dough is made right on the premise to ensure high quality and freshness. It starts with a bag of flour, pounded and rolled. The dough is transformed, in the hands of a skilled pizzaiolo (pizza maker) into deliciously prepared, mouthwatering pizza. At Rocco’s, we inspire our pizzaioli to be creative. On any day of the week, you can see neo-Neopolitan pizza slices on display that are not always on the menu.
We use fresh ingredients and domestic produce in all of our personalized dishes. Rocco’s precise attention to detail and authentic Italian cuisine has consistently earned us the best restaurant titles in the Exton area. Rocco’s has thus become a major land mark in the Exton dining scene. We strive to create an Italian/ South Philly hybrid dining experience right to the Exton Chester County neighborhood. Due to our excellent food and service, we have created long-lasting familial relationships with our customers. Our reputation is of upmost importance to us here Rocco’s, and over time we have become known for our slogan, “A Taste of Italy” or how we like to say “Un Tocco D’Italia”. Here at Rocco’s we feel that our passion is our food, and our customers are our family. We welcome you to come and join our family and passion for food.
