The Best Italian Food In Dallas

Saint Rocco's New York Italian is the latest restaurant concept from industry legend Phil Romano and executive chef and co-owner Jay Valley. Located in Dallas' Trinity Groves, this restaurant is inspired by the family dinner tables the two grew up with as first-generation Italian Americans.

About us

Saint Rocco is known to the world as the “Protector Saint” who lived in Rome, Italy in the mid 1300’s. He is said to have taken a vow of poverty and upon doing so he distributed his entire wealth to the poor. Even to this day Italian communities worldwide honor Saint Rocco in an annual celebration or festival called “The Feast of Saint Rocco.” These festivities are usually street affairs with a plethora of Italian Food, Family, and Fun. It is in the spirit of the feasts of Saint Rocco that we wish to share this timeless Italian tradition with you when you dine with us. Phil Romano knows that his success as a Restaurateur is the result of his ability to team up and work with only the finest chefs in America. Mr. Romano’s 20+ year relationship with Chef Jay Valley has led Trinity Groves to partner with Jay at Saint Rocco’s. Jay, who too grew up Italian, is delighted to bring all the joy of his romance with food to you. Mangia
