Rocky's Number II
Posted by Curtis Laraque on 12/20/2010
I placed an order for delivery for fried calamari, hot wings, and a slice of cheesecake. The hot wings were very dry (the meat was I mean; they were well sauced), and so were just ok. I would order them because of the price, if I ever intended to order from here again, that is. The fried calamari....so much to say. First, they were clearly not well battered, so right away there was no chance that they'd be crispy or fluffy or anything that would involve bread/flour. But w/e, it's all about the squid, right? Well, I pop one in my mouth, and the thing is just ridiculously tough. Difficult to get my teeth through, difficult to swallow. I'd never had calamari like this before; the was nothing soft about this. So sad, and I had such a craving too. Now the cheesecake...I can't really comment on the cheesecake, because it didn't exist. Instead, I received with my order a slice of tiramisu instead, something I do not like because I do not like coffee. Another craving missed out on. All in all, a bad experience, and, aside from the wings, too expensive to take a chance with again.

Ordered Buffalo Wings and got BBQ wings - not hot wings. No flavor at all. Asked for price on phone and was charged more when delivered. Food is not good and they were rude on phone. I was hoping to match Aiello's wings - not even close.

THE best! The pizza is always fresh and delicious. AMAZING pizza marinara with fresh mozz. Only wish they delivered to a farther range now that I moved!

I was very surprised how delicious the eggplant parmesan was; I have eaten at every 5 star Italian in the City and it was comparable. The portions are also very large so I thought it was a great value. Granted it was a little late in the evening, it shouldn't take an hour for delivery. Frankly, it was worth the wait for such great food at that price. Will definitely order again soon!

yeah, I just spent the last hour of my lazy vacation pondering which spot has the best penne alla vodka. After (too) much deliberation, I have concluded that, in my experience (i could go toe-to-toe with that man vs food guy) ROCKY's II pizzaria makes the best vodka sauce. I love it on their pizza and their pasta. I usually go for penne or linguini. Keep up the great work!!

I agree that there was a period of time where the pizza wasn't as good as it used to be, but recently, I went back and am thrilled that it's great again! My favorites are the sicilian pizza, the chicken parm pan pizza and the baked ziti & lasagna. I've tried all the pizza places in the neighborhood and Rocky's is definitely the best NY pizza.

Rocky's easily is the best pizza place on the east side of Manhattan. I never write reviews but felt like sharing this posting because I was so impressed by the way this establishment runs a business. The managers are extremely cordial, and the quality of food is excellent. I have nothing but positive things to say about Rocky's. Hope they keep up the great work.
