26 Years In, Rocco's Cafe
Still Thrives In A Changing SoMa

"Between three recently shuttered SoMa restaurants-Triptych, El Capitan and Carafe-and across the street from 111 future apartments sits Roccos Cafe. Chef Don Dial and many longtime team members have been feeding the neighborhood from the ground floor of 1131 Folsom St. for 26 years, making Rocco's the oldest operating restaurant in the neighborhood, Dial says..."



Rocco's Cafe

Welcome to
Rocco's Cafe, San Francisco

Rocco's Cafe is named after Rocco Coscarelli, who emigrated from Northern Italy in 1920. Rocco ran a successful restaurant for more than 30 years at Mission & Geneva; the key ingredients were quality, quantity, and personality. This old-school Italian recipe for success was passed down to Rocco's grandson Don, who 25 years ago opened Rocco's Cafe in his honor.
