Our Story

Roko Italian Cuisine Owners Jadran and Vojka PerosOur story begins when we moved to Eastern, NC from Croatia in 1985, we wanted to create a comfortable and quaint restaurant serving truly authentic Italian style cuisine.  Today, head chef Jadran, dad, is honored to personally prepare your dish combining our old family recipes with fresh local ingredients. With his 30+ years of cooking experience you can expect to enjoy a meal unlike any other.

For us, the dinner table has always been a place for family and friends to come together and enjoy great Italian food.  Vojka, mom, encourages you to continue our tradition here.  So come in and relax, share stories and enjoy our warm and friendly service, as we prepare the finest Italian cuisine especially for you.
