A group of us from New Jersey went to a wake on Staten Island last night. After, we wanted dinner. Earlier in the day, an internet search suggested Rocky Toto, on Amboy Rd in the Tottenville section of Staten Island. Turned out that the funeral home and Toto were only a couple blocks apart. So we gave it a try.
It was terrific.
To start we ordered broccoli rabe and spinach in garlic. For dinner, I ordered the special stuffed pork chops with sweet and hot peppers. The chops were huge!
Others had: eggplant parm; shrimp scampi; half roasted chicken. All good!
The "house red" was a good Italian cab.
Friendly staff, great waitress, attentive but leisurely pace, pleasant atmosphere.
The place filled up as time went by. Seems like a neighborhood type of place. The karaoke was fun.
A good reason to trek over the Outerbridge Crossing.
