One of Jeff Eats’ favorite menu items…

20 Southeast 5th Avenue
Delray Beach

You guys and Jeff Eats both know that “mom & pop red sauce” Italian joints are a dime a dozen down here in South Florida.

The way I’m thinking, for the same money- why shouldn’t I eat in a joint- that looks good, smells good, treats customers good and serves an outrageously delicious chicken parmigiana!

So there you go!

Rocky’s reminds me of the Italian joints that dotted- Bay Ridge, Brooklyn 35-40 years ago! For you guys who don’t “know” Bay Ridge, for starters go watch “Saturday Night Fever” -think Tony Manero (John Travolta played the part)- and you’ll know Rocky’s Italian Bistro’s -vibe!

Try Rocky’s Italian Bistro…it does things right!

***** Rocky’s Italian Bistro, 20 Southeast 5th Avenue, Delray Beach, Florida 33483 (561) 276-8703.

Last Sunday night…around 6:30pm my wife and I were strolling around the Atlantic Avenue -area in Delray Beach. For sure, a handful of restaurants in this “faux-trendy” neighborhood have good-reasonably priced food, but there are also a number of joints, that are dishing out mediocre- overpriced stuff.

Now for the good news…Rocky’s Italian Bistro is one of the “good guys”…good food, good looking semi-upscale decor (but your tee shirst/shorts will work), good prices, good service.

Now don’t get wise (we had plenty of leftovers to take home)…a taste-test of clams orgenatta, veal parmigiana, chicken piccata, penne alla vodka and linguine with clams in a white sauce, was right-on-the money. The food is as good, if not better than your favorite neighborhood Italian-joint-hangout.

So…the next time you need a good Italian joint to eat in while strolling Atlantic Avenue…Rocky’s is the place for you. By the way, the joint is open 7-days a week for dinner

    I have been eating at Rocky’s for 10 years. The food and service are always good and the prices reasonable. Much nicer atmosphere than your local mom & pop Italian joint.
