Waterfront Cafe in Boston's North End Is Now Rocco's Cucina and Bar

A neighborhood watering hole in the North End of Boston now has a new name.

A post from @bookwormcu indicates that the Waterfront Cafe on Commercial Street is now called Rocco's Cucina & Bar, with a check on the place's Facebook page showing that the name change actually took place back in November. The post also hints that this is apparently just a simple rebranding, with the spot remaining mostly the same.

The Waterfront Cafe had been a place that our sister site (Boston's Hidden Restaurants) had featured as an under-the-radar dining and drinking spot to check out in the North End. The review can be found below:

The address for Rocco's Cucina & Bar (and the former Waterfront Cafe) is 450 Commercial Street, Boston, MA, 02109. The website for Rocco's can be found at
