Rocco’s.

Rocco’s in Rajagiriya is yet another one of the many pizzerias that has gained popularity for its delivery. Their wood fire pizzas, while not terrible in any way, just aren’t as good as some of our top spots.

Food

The competition between pizzerias in Colombo has heated up over the past few years with the likes of Santore and Domenico’s coming in with very competitive prices. Rocco’s is slightly older than the aforementioned and they’ve gained quite a bit of popularity.

One thing we really need to give them props for is their menu, which is  possibly the most extensive one we’ve come across. They’ve got any pizza you can think of whether it be Thai red curry, Moroccan lamb, smoked salmon and pretty much all the classic Italian pizzas. They also offer both 9” and 14” pizzas priced between Rs. 850 – Rs. 1300 for 9” and about Rs. 300 more for the larger, which isn’t too bad all things considered.

The salsiccia (Rs. 1100) which is chorizo sausage with mozzarella wasn’t very impressive unfortunately. We’re directly comparing it to the stuff from Domenico’s since we had it recently and it just doesn’t match up. This is mostly due to the chorizo sausage itself lacking in flavour and missing little things like a dash of oregano for aroma.

We also got the Bacaroni (Rs. 1150), which is a fun little word play at a bacon and pepperoni pizza. Gladly, this one was a lot better than the previous and it’s always great to see actual bacon as opposed to facon (chicken bacon). Honestly, this one would taste great as long the ingredients are good. I mean look, it’s bacon and pepperoni.

Risottos aren’t something that we come across often in Sri Lanka, so we were interested to see how Rocco’s seafood rissoto (Rs. 1250) would fare, since it can be notoriously difficult to do right. This one was actually a little tricky judge, since it was actually quite tasty. The problem though, was that the texture and consistency was completely wrong.  The rissoto was really thick and the texture was actually more like mac n’ cheese.

Conclusion

Rocco’s has one of the most impressive menus we’ve seen from a pizzeria, but the pizzas themselves, definitely have room for improvement.
