- Pocorello's is like that little Italian deli you see on TV. You walk in to see Pokie(owner) every single day talking with all his regular customers, watching the news, talking politics and local happenings. It's just instantly like you walked in to a home kitchen. – Wayne Odom, Best of Baton Rouge
