Solidly executed Southern Italian fare compensates for Roc’s ear-piercing acoustics and boisterous clientele. Paper-thin seared-tuna carpaccio arrives with a refreshing mâche salad, and perfectly cooked halibut is simply presented with grape tomatoes and fava bean puree. The lighting is flattering and the well-spaced tables allow for an intimate meal—if only you could hear your date.
