Rocco’s celebrates it’s 7th anniversary this Summer and the celebration has already started with this week’s roll-out of brand new menus.

A market-basket of new dishes is on the menu at award-winning Rocco’s Italian Grille & Bar just as the restaurant gets ready to celebrate its 7th anniversary, says owner Rocco Potami. The new menu adds dozens of dishes for lunch and dinner, including a half-dozen new pastas and new chicken and veal entrees, many in the $15 to $17 range.

Examples are Penne al Buon Gustaio. penne tossed with Italian sausage, red bell peppers and cherry tomatoes ( $15.25) and Petto di Pollo Alla Caprese, pan-seared chicken breast,
topped with fresh tomatoes and smoked mozzarella in a white wine and demi-glace sauce ($17.25).

“Our 7th anniversary is this summer, and it seemed like a perfect time to re-imagine Italian classics in our kitchen,” says Potami. He says his goal is to bring fresh ideas to his popular Winter Park eatery, but also keep in mind pricing that allows guests to enjoy a fine meal for under $20.

“We set a standard when we opened in 2006,” Potami explains. “We wanted to offer fine
dining in a casual setting with the best quality ingredients available, and we are proud to be able to
maintain that level of service.”

Over the past six and half years, Rocco’s has become a local favorite. Tucked in an arcade off
bustling 17-92 just north of Fairbanks Avenue, Rocco’s features a white tablecloth atmosphere and Old-World ambience, with an intimate courtyard that offers al fresco dining. Rocco’s private dining room is a local favorite for family celebrations and business affairs alike. Off-street parking provides easy access.
