Naperville has some of the best pizza around, with many popular restaurants offering their own version of a tasty Chicago style deep dish pizza. Chances are, if you’ve been in the area for any length of time, you’ve tried the most popular ones.
There is however, one pizza place that is a small, local business that may have slipped under the radar because it is not as well known. Rocco’s Pizzeria offers a great selection of pizza, including their own deep dish stuffed pizza, as well as delicious appetizers, salads, sandwiches, dinners, and calzones. You can also get pizza by the slice, which is a great lunch option.

Rocco’s does not offer a true dine-in option suitable for bringing the entire family into the establishment for a sit down meal. But, with four stools, it’s perfect for dining alone or with a friend. They do offer both pick-up and delivery options, so you can take some great food home to the family or have it delivered hot and fresh right to your door.
Rocco’s menu offers a variety of appetizers, including chicken wings and breaded mushrooms. There are also several salad choices including Greek Salad and Garden Salad. The sandwich section includes such favorites as Italian Beef and Chicken Parmesan. Dinners include family favorites such as spaghetti, ravioli, and Chicken Fettuccini Alfredo.
As for the pizza, you can choose from thin crust, double dough, pan pizza, stuffed pizza, calzones, and specialty pizzas. There are also several topping options so you can customize your pizza to perfection. The stuffed pizza is their version of what we think of as the Chicago deep dish style, and is quite delicious and filling. The calzones are enormous, and a large one can easily feed more than one person. You can also choose to buy pizza by the slice, which is offered in your choice of pepperoni or sausage on an original crust for about $3.00 including tax. The slices are huge and are easily the equivalent of two average sized slices of pizza. Both the sausage and pepperoni slices are loaded with tons of gooey cheese and a lot of meat. It’s a decent sized slice for the price.
Rocco’s Pizzeria also offers a catering menu featuring pastas, meat sandwiches, and salads.

Rocco’s offers great food, as well as delivery and catering options. Sometimes it’s nice to take a break from chain restaurant pizza and give a local Naperville business a try. You’ll be glad you did!
