Some things change... Others never will.
Rocco’s Pub & Pizza was named “Rocco's Pizzeria” when Thomas “Rocco” Barth and his wife Betty opened its doors in 1958. It was a short commute to work for them, as the Barth’s and three of their children (soon to be four) lived for a time in the back of their first location on King Street in Winona, MN.
In 1958, you could dine in, take out, or have a pizza delivered to your door
for only a dollar. It didn’t take long for Rocco's Pizzeria to outgrow that
first building and move to a new location, then another, as both the city of Winona and the pizza business grew.
Today, Rocco's Pub & Pizza is owned and operated by Bob Barth (remember that number 4 child who literally grew up in the pizza business?) and his wife, Tammy. The famous Rocco’s pizzas are now created in two locations: one on 6th Street in Goodview and the other on 5th Street in Winona. Now, it's easier than ever to dine in, pickup, or have a piping hot pizza delivered to you.
The locations have changed but the food is still prepared the same way it was back in 1958. Homemade dough, freshly cut vegetables, the finest meats (including our own sausage), fresh mozzarella cheese grated on-site, and the signature Rocco's sauce from the original Italian recipe are all combined to make sure that …
East or West, Rocco’s is Best.
