Best NYC Pizza in California, 3/22/2014
Reviewer: Mike from Santa Barbara, CA
This place has the best NY pizza in California hands down. I grew up on NY pizza and this place is the only place that comes close to serving NY pizza. The service was great as well the guy running it came over talk with us and offered us a free drink I always stopped there when in SB or nearby.

excellent New York style pizza , 1/8/2014

Pretty Ok
Reviewer: Mario from Santa Barbara, CA
Not a bad slice of pizza. Crispy crust, and cheesy, nice and thin. Overall great flavor. Very pricy for a slice of cheese. And Rocco was nowhere to be found.

Hands down the best
Reviewer: Gregory from Simi Valley
We each have our own taste buds but if you really take a bit of time and compare pizza's you will find yourself heading back to Uncle Rocco's like I have since he opened on State St. Considering I drive an hour to get there, sadly I get there once or twice a month. Best salads and if you get to know Rocco, you will find his genuine kindness and respect for his customers, family and friends are something we could use more of at local restaurants. A glass of wine, a pizza and a salad...Priceless, throw in the beach, seeing all the people walking up and down State Street and one realizes there's a reason his place is packed and his food and the Italian atmosphere is always a perfect place to make sure to stop in at. For those who live off of fast food pizza's and seek 2 for 1 specials or deliver in 15 minutes, well you get what you pay for. Quality beats fast food all day long and quality is the only food I want going into me 100% of the time. Thanks for making your destination a great place to eat.

I was craving a slice of pizza and stumbled along Uncle Rocco's on State Str . Wow! So good. I would reccommend this to everyone . Very crispy and the perfect amount of cheese. As close to New York pizza as you will get. I will make it a point to stop in any time I am in town .

Yummy Pizza
Reviewer: Franco from Redondo Beach, CA
Forget about Pizza Hut, Dominos, Papa John's, or any chain pizza place, Uncle Rocco's is the real deal. I love going to Uncle Rocco's New York Pizza, and I'm from Redondo Beach. I wish there was a more local restaurant, but it's worth the drive!

The best Pizza in California
Reviewer: Gregory from Simi Valley, CA
I love pizza and have yet to find one as good As URNYPizza. The pizza here has a real flavor that you just don't find at other places. So, I drive up from Simi Valley which is about and hour and fifteen minute drive or take the train up and always stop in for lunch. Pizza, salad which both are always fresh and great. Thanks for running a 5 star restaurant.

go Rocco!!!
Reviewer: valeria from Santa Barbara, CA
Very good pizza, pepperoni and basil is my favourite, nice place and good service. Perfect for late night pizza! Go Rocco!!!

Good NY pizza
Reviewer: kris from vandenberg ca
I went to Rocco's on the 4th of July because it was one of the only restaurants that wasn't packed. The pizza is excellent with big slices and served hot. The crust was thin and just how I like it and the sauce was good. Also, even though it was fairly busy, the service was good. I'll give the guy who i assume was the owner a 5 because he was the only one taking orders and running the bar and doing a good job. I wouldn't hesitate to eat there again and recommended it for someone looking for a good slice.

Best NY Pizza in Southern CA
Reviewer: Kathy from Moorpark, CA
Uncle Rocco's pizza is the best NY pizza in the Southern CA area. We were there this past weekend and it remains consistent in its quality and taste. I highly recommend it for any true pizza snob. We really love the plain cheese pizza. It lets the perfect sauce shine and you get the full flavor of the crust which is also done to perfection. We have followed Uncle Rocco's from Simi Valley to it's home in Santa Barbara and eat there when ever we are in the area. We have even picked it up to go and have taken it camping! We introduced our 13 year old grandson to Uncle Rocco's pizza this past weekend and he loved every bite. Uncle Rocco's presents a NY experience in Santa Barbara. It is a little hole in the wall that houses the best kept secret in Santa Barbara...fabulous pizza and good beer on tap. All in all, it is a great place for exceptional pizza.

East vs West
Reviewer: Glenn from Buellton
I think you are getting confused between a NY style and other styles of pizza. NY style is not about the toppings but more the crust/cheese/sauce and monster size slice and this place was good for me in that respect. A topping oriented pizza(like most the ones mentioned below) is a different beast(I grew up on Rustys too and like it also!). Try Paesano's for another NY style one I like. If its not your cup of tea, well, then foggetta about it!
