Rocco's Calamari

rschwim Jan 3, 2013 07:14 PM

Rocco's Calamari was majorly happening today! 3 of us went for my son's 20th birthday. He requested Rocco's after we remembered Little Pepper (his usual first choice for anything) is closed on Thursday. We had 2 orders fried calamari with hot sauce, small seafood salad, large broccoli rabe (w. extra garlic), grilled shrimp (6), raw clams (2 dozen) and baked clams (6).
All were delicious and I'd go back tomorrow if I could. Bill came to $90

      Sounds like a great birthday meal.
      Speaking of calamari do you know if Randazzo's in Sheepshead Bay is back in business?

        I'm pretty sure I saw something about them re-opening... Not 100% though

          I love Rocco's. Always have a great meal there...great penne a la vodka, GREAT fried shrimp and of course the calamari. I also love their cannoli.

            Ok! Never had the fried shrimp there... Next visit I'm checking it out for sure. I have no doubts that it's serious
