Notes: From our roving restaurant reporter, we got this about Roco’s:
This restaurant might be described as pasta fresca express. They feature in-house freshly made pasta. They have six different machines that are used to make specialty pasta every day, including pastas made with carrot, spinach and wheat. The pasta types are spaghetti, lasagne sheets, fettuccine, ravioli, capelletinni, tortellini, sorrentinos. They also have empanadas and canelones. Some are filled with cheese or meat. The pasta is packaged “to go” as frozen or cooked to take-out if you’d like. Salads are available as well as full lunch specials. In addition to the pasta, a variety of sauces are made in-house and are available to top the pasta. Sauces include Alfredo, Pesto, Diabla, Rosada, 4 Quesos, Bolognesa and Al Burro. You can also include toppings such as chicken, shrimp, meat and a mix of veggies for the vegetarians. Cooked lasagne is also available to go. Home delivery in available in some areas (probably not the centro). Dishes to order and eat cost between $55 and $75 pesos. Lunch specials ($55 pesos) include a pasta dish with sauce of your choice, a salad, pan and a can of Coke. Dessert (Chocolate cake or tiramisu) for $30 pesos.
It’s like a mix and match pasta house!
Our reporter added, “I ordered 1/2 kilo of the spinach ravioli and 1/2 kilo of the carrot ravioli, stuffed with cheese. I decided to tried the 4-cheese sauce (given to me hot). This was enough for 8 people, easy and cost about $110 pesos total. I took it home and cooked the pasta myself. The pasta was very good, the flavor and texture were great, they were easy to cook and the sauce was rich, creamy and plentiful. I would go back for more ready-made items or simply to stock up on freshly made pasta noodles and sauces.”
