Rocco Whalen, executive chef and owner of the acclaimed Fahrenheit in Cleveland’s historic Tremont neighborhood, is wrapped up in the love of cooking. He savors the idea and vitality of inventing a meal and creating it from the freshest local ingredients, a skill that was instilled in him by his mother, Rosie, at a young age. This loving memory of cooking with his mother led to the creation of Rosie & Rocco’s —his homage to his beloved mother.
"Had a very pleasant evening at the horseshoe casino, we had late night slices of pizza at Rosie and Rocco's. Easily the best New York style pizza in Cleveland. Can't wait for the next time we come back"
"Great pasta dishes! The pizzas are very beautiful and unique."
"Rosie and Rocco's may not have the fanciest style for a counter service restaurant, but Rocco didn't disappoint when it came to flavor. The chicken was cooked to perfection, the sauce was flavorful, and the chicken's breading was just right"
