Rocco’s In the Canyon

 Rocco’s In the Canyon
123 S Topanga Canyon Blvd
Topanga, CA 90290

 Rocco’s In the Canyon, according to the sign, has been opened since 1980.  Located just off of Topanga Canyon Blvd, next to the Post Office, is a dated restaurant that could use a facelift.  The entrance to the restaurant is to the right, in the photo above.  The over lattice work is the patio.  The interior has dated carpets, walls, and decor. 

 Medium pizza, $12.50 plus $1.95 per topping, mushrooms and jalapenos, $17.95.  To be blunt, this pizza was bad!  Not worth the his prize, or the calories.  The crust was too chewy and tough, almost like eating  frozen pizza and man was the crust salty!  Also, the dough was undercooke in the middle.  Just watery and soggy in the middle.  The amount of toppings may equal 95 cents, but hardly justifies the $3.90 extra!  A complete ripoff,  it's only mushrooms and jalapenos, add most than 2 ounces!  The cheese was ok.

Service was good.  The lady was nice and helpful.  What I liked most was she said the pizza would take about 20 minutes!  Many pizza places do not give you the amount of time it will take!  So major points for that!

I wouldn't go back to Rocco's in the Canyon!  I realize there may not be many options for pizza along Topanga, but make the drive into the valley!  There has to be good pizza!
