ROC Restaurant | Authentic Italian Cuisine in Louisville, Kentucky


ROC Restaurant is a chic, high-energy Italian restaurant located in the heart of The Highlands on Bardstown Road, featuring a stunning outdoor pergola. Originating in Tribeca, NYC for the last 17 years, Rocco Cadolini has moved this local favorite hotspot to Louisville, Kentucky. At Louisville’s ROC Restaurant, two Italian Chefs from Puglia are waiting to cook you the best Italian meal you’ve ever had.


ROC Restaurant features two floors dedicated to unique dining experiences. The main floor is designed for casual dining and features a long, gorgeous bar in copper-trimmed Mahogany wood on the inside and a beautiful pergola with charming red chairs for outdoor dining. The upstairs floor features a traditional fine dining atmosphere. Spaces include a main dining room with table cloths and a communal room featuring a high-top communal table made with tiles from Old Italian villas.


ROC is home to two rooms that can be privately reserved for your celebration; the Alessia and the Sofia, named after Rocco’s daughters, each feature stunning, uniquely carved handmade wooden tables with contemporary lighting.
