Rocco's Capriccio: good enough for another Rocco?
A Dining@Large reader is seeking restaurant suggestions for a couple of New Jersey Italian food sophisticates.
If the restaurant could have "Rocco" in the name, all the better.
Here's what he e-mailed me:
"Have you ever dined at Rocco's Capriccio?
"I ask because my father is coming into town and he is celebrating his 60th birthday this month and I want to take he and my Mom to dinner.
"Incidentally, his name is Rocco. So, I thought if the food were worth the visit, it would be cool to take him here."
The e-mail continued:
"They are from NJ, so, I suppose their taste for Italian food may be a little more sophisticated than others, but in all honesty, they're not that picky. Just looking to see if you have any thoughts on this place. Thanks."
I've never dined at Rocco's, which is in Little Italy. Can anybody out there advise him?
