At Rocco's Uptown Pizza & Pasta, Rocco and his wife make guests feel right at home by serving made-from-scratch Italian meals that include New York–style pizzas, cooked in a brick oven, as well as an expansive selection of pastas. For their pies, they first slather crusts with one of five sauces: marinara, olive oil, creamy alfredo, pesto, or salsa. They sprinkle on up to seven cheeses, such as parmesan or romano, and then add some color with selections from more 30 toppings. Predesigned pizzas include the lasagna pizza, layered with ricotta cheese, seasoned ground beef, mozzarella cheese, and housemade marinara sauce. The chefs also ladle their marinara over baked ziti dishes, manicotti, or the cupped hands of passersby. Classic parmesan dishes—eggplant, chicken, and veal—can be served solo on a plate or between slices of fresh bread.
