About Us

Offering age-old tradition and timeless recipes that have been passed down through generations, the Rocket Cafe successfully combines cuisine and atmosphere to create a dining experience that won't soon be forgotten. Quiet and elegant, The Rocket Cafe is the kind of place that could be your home away from home. Smells of spices and homemade cooking fill the air while a friendly and knowledgeable wait staff bends over backwards to cater to your every need.

The menu is vast and impressive showcasing traditional specialties as well as modern adaptations. There is something here sure to tempt every palate, even the most discriminating of gourmets! The Rocket Cafe is owned and managed by Marie Chioda. Marie's family-the Colainni's originally opened "The Pizza Palace" in the early 80's. They brought authentic Italian style Pizza and Pasta dishes to Gallup. Later in the mid-90's, the Rocket Cafe opened at that same location. In addition to Italian Cuisine, Marie added New Mexican flavors and American dishes.

Recently-remodeled, the Rocket Cafe is a local Gallup favorite spot. Enjoy Italian, New Mexican, or American Entrees in our beautiful new dining area. We have large, flat screen TV's for your entertainment while you dine. We also deliver. The Rocket Cafe is truly Gallup's most authentic Italian food and best overall dining experience!
