Saint Rocco's Brings a Slice of NYC to DFW

Put simply, there’s just something special about Italian food. It’s savory, filling, and delicious in a way that sets it apart from other cuisines. Saint Rocco's, Trinity Groves’ newest addition, is devoted to serving classic New York Italian food in a quaint, intimate setting.

Saint Rocco's is located in popular Trinity Groves, making it the perfect spot for a social night out. 

Saint Rocco’s, in staying true to its roots, is modeled after the vintage Italian restaurants that come to mind when you think of “New York Italian.” The interior is dimly-lit, with a spacious open-air kitchen and walls peppered with old pictures that pay homage to a bygone era. The staff are all attentive and friendly, and the spot is the ideal setting for both a date night or a fun dinner.

As soon as you’re seated, start with a drink. The Limoncello Martini is a perfect place to begin; it’s sweet and tart, but light and easy on the palate. If you’re not a martini drinker, try the Saint Rocco’s Bellini. It’s accented by pureed peach and a rich black cherry garnish, and it’s a nice frozen concoction for sipping slowly. Or, skip cocktails entirely and order a bottle of wine for a classic pairing to go with your Italian meal.

The Saint Rocco's Bellini and Limoncello Martini are two tasty cocktails ideal for sipping slowly with your meal. 

When it comes to the main course, any pasta item on the menu is going to be your best bet. Saint Rocco’s serves an assortment of pastas accented by a variety of sauces and proteins, so the possibilities are vast. We recommend the Scallop Aila e Olio, which features grilled scallops atop a bed of linguini pancetta, accented with garlic, Parmesan, and chili flakes.

Scallops pair perfectly with a bed of linguini in the Scallop Aila e Olio.

If you’re not in the mood for pasta, fear not; Saint Rocco’s also serves a few dishes sans noodles that are sure to please. The Brick Grilled Chicken, for example, is delicious; it features a generous helping of tender roasted chicken, served alongside a helping of herb-roasted potatoes, and topped with a deliciously savory caper butter sauce.

The Brick Grilled Chicken is juicy on its own, but the caper butter sauce really makes the dish pop.

If you have room for dessert, Saint Rocco’s has you covered. Their menu features New York classics such as Ricotta Cheesecake and Cannolis, and most items can be taken to go if you’re looking to enjoy a midnight snack later. We definitely recommend planning your visit for an early dinner; if you time it right, you can finish it off by enjoying a sunset over the river while walking the bridge. Whether you’re going with friends, family, or someone special, it’s a lovely place for an intimate Italian meal.
