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.

  • "Food and service first rate. Even though it was a busy Saturday night our table was ready on time and our service was impeccable. The food as always was first rate. We are never disappointed at Rocca's."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "Always great food and great service! The menu is always updated with new dishes. They use a lot of fresh ingredients from local farms. I've been to Rocca many times and never had something I didn't like. Never a wait with a reservation and always great, attentive service."

  • "Rocca is a good choice for a pleasant dining experience. On certain nights (I believe Sunday, Tuesday and Wednesday) there is a very good prix fixe menu that is an excellent value."
    Dined on 4/9/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "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!"

  • "RoCCa has a small but wonderful menu-there were options for people who may have dietary restrictions. Portions were just right. Service was great as well. We had a round table, which made conversation easier. Highly recommend"

  • "My expectations were exceeded by the wonderful wait staff and exquisitely prepared entrees."
    Dined on 2/23/2014
  • "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!!!!"
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "Food is always delicious at this restaurant. Highly recommend pasta tasting night on Thursdays as well!"

  • "Went on a Sunday for a Valentine's Day dinner. Restaurant was packed, glad we made reservations, food was excellent but not enough. We had appetizer, entree, dessert and we were still hungry afterwards."
    Dined on 2/16/2014
  • "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."

  • "Dinner was excellent as usual. The best ingredients well prepared with attentive service. Still impresses after all these years."
    Dined on 2/11/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "Rocca used to be an excellent restaurant, but based on our last experience it has slipped to only slightly above average. Hope this was just one bad night."
    Dined on 2/7/2014
  • "Wasn't sure if about going there. Almost cancelled, but glad I didn't. Would go back again."
    Dined on 2/1/2014
  • "Have been to RoCCa on several occasions, and have always found the fare to be a cut above. This night was no exception. However, although the restaurant was less than filled, service was spotty. It seems that staff needs additional schooling in being attentive but not overbearing."
    Dined on 1/28/2014
  • "I thought I was going to a fancy fine dining establishment based on their website and some reviews. I found a very nice, albeit a tad tired, restaurant. The lighting was bright which I personally like especially when friends are getting together - everyone could see and hear each other - so that was great. The Prix Fixe is great value although they should just ditch the dessert and make it 2 courses as the dessert is a few slices of fruit - barely. The food overall was very good as well as the service."
    Dined on 1/28/2014
  • "A must try... With all the other fine restaurants in Bergen county, Rocca is still the one spot you don't want to miss. Consistently inventive and tasty new american cuisine. Every dish is a gem. Tweleve years and still coming back for more. See some of my other reviews."
    Dined on 1/25/2014
  • "We have dined at Rocca many times and have never been disappointed. The meal this week was fabulous. We all had different dishes including steak, osso bucco, gnocchi and fish. Each dish was prepared with attention to taste, texture and presentation. While I usually order whatever preparation of scallops is available that day, this weekend scallops were not on the menu so I ordered the Branzini. I think it was the best preparation of Branzini I have ever had. And the ricotta gnocchi were melt in your mouth delicious. Rocca is a neighborhood gem. Can't wait to go back ..."
    Dined on 1/25/2014
  • "We've been going to Rocca now for years and we've never been disappointed. It is the restaurant we always suggest when going out with friends because we know it will always impress. The freshness of the food coupled with the creative flare makes for a winner! Our seafood salad was so good, we ordered another because we couldn't get enough of it. And the mussels with bits of bacon were delicious. I ordered fish which was delicately prepared and friends who ordered pasta(which is all homemade) said it melted in your mouth. You can never go wrong at Rocca. My only criticism is that the large, main dining room lacks ambience but it certainly isn't a deal breaker."
    Dined on 1/25/2014
  • "I went there for our 27 th anniversary after reading reviews and menu on opentable. We are both vegetarians and I saw some options on the menu on opentable. However, when we went there, the menu was completely different and we were told we had only 1 entree option. Had the artichoke salad which was great, but the entree was disappointing. Would not go again"

  • "Although we live in Ridgewood we have never eaten at RoCCA so when I heard they had a prix fixe menu on Wednesdays we decided to try it. At 7:00 it wasn't very busy but filled up soon after that. Prices on the regular menu seemed a little high; we had to ask for the prix fixe menu. The assortment on the special menu was good. The Caesar salad and Chicken Milanese were both good size portions. My husbands Chicken Cacciatore was a little small. We will visit RoCCA again."

  • "As usual the food and service were excellent. There were four of us and everyone really enjoyed their meals. The mussels are as good as any I've ever had. Looking forward to returning."
    Dined on 1/15/2014
  • "We dined on a Saturday night. Restaurant was crowded yet our reservation was acknowledged and we were seated immeiately, Menu was somewhat limited as far as Entrees were concerned as we were informed that 2 of the items were not available. Wait staff was attentive and friendly. Food was excellent."
    Dined on 1/18/2014
  • "Rocca is our go-to restaurant for a special dinner with friends and family. Whatever choice we make, every dish is terrific. My husband said no rest. makes "mussels" the way Roccas does and I find their "Parpadelle Bolognese" to be the best ever."
    Dined on 1/18/2014
  • "Initial table was severely cramped but the hostess suggested movement to an area that was less than full. Would have been more appropriate to seat the party there first. We had a table issue on our first visit as well. Food was very good but the service was less than attentive. Had to call for the waitress mNy times for simple items that were needed to continue dining. Needs it improve the basics for the service staff to anticipate the simple needs of the customer. The second table was periodically bathed in cold air from the main door area. Distracting, cooling and not the best scenario. Work needs to be here. Thought this was going to be a regular restaurant stop for us. Now that is in question."

  • "I made a last minute NYE's reservation at RoCCA and I am so glad that I did... the meal was delicious, and the homemade gnocchi melted in our mouth it was so good! I would definitely go back and really want to try the pasta tasting menu on Thursday nights. Definitely would recommend for authentic Italian food and a low key relaxed evening without pretense, but amazing food nonetheless."
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "We have been to Rocca many times through out the years they have been opened. At one time they were one of our favorite restaurants. In the last few years we feel the food has not lived up to its past. As an example the veal I had the other night was tasty but slightly on the tough side. Lobster ravioli was very good. Service very good & friendly."
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "We've lived in the area for almost 20 years. This was our first visit to RoCCA. We will definitely be back and will bring professional colleagues and friends. It was the best dining experience we have had in the area in a very long time."

  • "Menu was limited for the holiday, but varied enough. Service was excellent in spite of being very busy. We were a party of six and were seated promptly. Food was excellent."
