A word from RoCCA - Glen Rock
FRESH - LOCAL- ORGANIC

In 2013, ROCCA begins their 9th year of delivering fresh, seasonal fare to North Jersey palates. Chef Craig Levy has always created unique dishes with the season's best ingredients, but for the last 3 years he has incorporated more and more items from organic, local farms and purveyors. His depth of experience with the Farm-to-Table movement shows in the diverse, creative menu, upon which many items change weekly to reflect what is new and fresh.

From their hand-stretched, housemade mozzarella and famous foccacia bread to the expertly seared fish and hand-crafted artisan pastas, there is something for everyone...and more.

ROCCA...where food and passion collide.

    Dined on 5/17/2014
    Made a reservation for 10 based on the reviews I read. It was my MIL's birthday. The staff was very accommodating with our large party and did not add on a gratuity (service was great so I tipped more than the usual add on 18%). We opted for 2 family style appetizers. Disappointed that they would not make the large antipasto. We had a chopped salad and fried calamari. Both were very good. The calamari were nice and crisp and not at all greasy. Everyone enjoyed their dinners. Portions were reasonable, not too small and not diner-sized humongous. The noise level in the dining room is at a dull roar, so it wouldn't be a great romantic spot. I would definitely go back another time. The inlaws liked it too, another plus!

    Very good food considering it was buffet style instead of a la carte but our server was terrible. Clearly she did not want to be there or the 20% gratuity that was added to every check meant she could not care less. Most staff seemed cheerful. She wanted to charge my 2-yr old the full price of a kids buffet. Said it was a the restaurant policy. Sorry, but not aware of many, if any, restaurants ever charging a 2-yr old infant.

    Have been to Rocca many times since we moved into the area - had our daughter's Christening there - and were SLIGHTLY disappointed with the food selection for Mother's brunch. Not sure if you need eggs prepared 3 ways and not include a carving station. Otherwise we had a very nice time, great brunch, Omar our waiter was great and was very attentive to our daughter which she loved.

    We have been to Rocca many times and have always found the food and service to be wonderful. Not this time, the food was not prepared as in the past and the service was immature. This was one of our favorites in Glen Rock, not any more.

    Salads were awesome. Entrées were decent. Homemade pasta was a failure. You would expect a restaurant that makes their own pasta to know how to cook their pasta. Negative. They all came out undercooked. What a shame.

    overall experience was excellent; service was very efficient, yet unobtrusive; I tried the pasta tasting menu which was being offered that night and it proved to be an excellent choice, I also very much enjoy the bread.

    Tried to find a place to take my husband for dinner on his birthday. Came across Rocca in one of my searches and loved the fact that the food is from local farms. There are not many establishments that you can sit and enjoy a meal and not have to worry where your food comes from as Rocca places their farm list up on the chalk board. Service was amazing.. We didn't know it was a BYOB however the server informed us that the wine store up the street delivers to their establishment. (Perfect!) Food was so very tasty. We will be returning again shortly.

    Rocca continues to be the number one spot in Bergen county for real foodies. The only headache I ever have; is what to choose eating. The menu is always changing; and full of wonderful surprises. Not to be missed.

    This restaurant has transformed itself from a more modern Italian to continental cuisine. I had the Lobster/Crab entree which was excellent. My wife's swordfish was also very good. And the roasted pear crumb cake was great too. Will definitely go back.

    They have once again changed their season menu, and were smart enough to ask their servers to let us know the menu was new and the chef was looking for feedback so we were especially aware while dining. We had the swordfish with black bean polenta and avacado "salsa" and the salmon over spinach and tomato coulee...both were delicious and the service was attentive and knowledgeable.....

    Our experience at Rocca this past weekend was as delicious as usual. Our crab cake appetizer was one of the most delicious food items we have ever eaten. The entrees were yummy. beautiful to look at and just as tasty. Dessert, the apple tart, while tasty was not up to the quality of the rest of our meal and therefore a little disappointing. The tart was a little on the dry side, It would be fine at other establishments with lower expectiations, but did not quite hit the mark here. Overall, I wish we could eat here all the time, it is such a wonderful dining experience.

    My boyfriend and I came here for a Saturday Night date night. We did have an amazon living social deal which entitled us to $75 worth of food and drink. It is a bring your own, so we brought a bottle of wine and used the $75 solely on food. The portion sizes were a little small given the prices, but everything was delicious and well worth it! Our server was phenomenal. He made several menu recommendations, was friendly, accommodating and very knowledgeable! We were very pleased with this restaurant and will definitely be back!

    Well the other diners in my group had fine meals which included veal saltimboca, swordfish and duck my rock shrimp over linguini was awful. Shrimp was tough and the broth was sandy/gritty. When I did not eat the meal & mentioned it to our server I got "oh really"? No coffee, dessert or apology. So not very professional at all. I wouldn't choose this place again.

    Always wonderful to have this gem so nearby as there is variety yet quality consistency and sophistication. Service varies but most recently was excellent. OK to bring kids (and have nice kids menu) earlier in the evening - later on, may be interrupting date night for those less-inclined to adore small children, no matter how well behaved.

    Some of the best, brightest and authentic farm-to-table food experience in the area. I went with a party of 6 this Saturday - everyone ordered something different and, without exception, everyone was delighted. My brussels sprouts appetizer was "to die for" delicious and my gnocchi --- little fluffy angel clouds from heaven!!!! This chef knows gnocchi!!!!

    Saturday night, first time here, food and service were very good. I had the veal saltimbocca and husband had the duck. Dining room was quite busy and had to wait a bit for our entrees, but didn't really bother us. We'd rather have our meals served hot and freshly made from the kitchen and we weren't disappointed. Portion size perfect for us, felt satisfied but not overly full, still had room for dessert, the best apple crisp I've had in a long time. Definitely will go back.

    We had a great dining experience, much improved from the Rocca of years ago. The food was great, the menu often changes with the season, and you are no longer "rushed" out like you use to be years ago. I would definitely go back.
