Well worth having to back through security at the airport if you have time.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect for mother's dayWe went for mother's day brunch. The food was good with nice sized portions. They could have actually been a tiny bit smaller and still been OK, but no real complaint there. It is a relaxing atmosphere with very attentive (but not intrusive) service. While our meal was an early one with our 9 year old son I could easily see this being a good place for a romantic date later in the evening.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Italian FoodThis was my first visit there and my husband and my mother and I had a terrific dinner....better than Joe's of Westlake. I love veal scalloppini and I usually have it in whatever Italian restaurant we go to...but that has changed for me...now I'm only going to get it here...it was amazing. The caprese salad and the calamari were terrific too. The calamari had a spicy red sauce and a white sauce had a real kick to it too. (wasn't expecting that from the white sauce...was expecting tartar sauce). The rigatoni that my mom had was thoroughly enjoyed and my husband loved his halibut (one of the special the night we were there). The dessert was yummy too. We are definitely going back there more often.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat a Charmer!Nice surprise, this little gem in Burlingame. We live in the north Bay and do not know the Peninsula restaurants very well. A friend recommended it b/c we were meeting a friend who had traveled from Fiji and she wanted some decent Italian food. Rocca did not disappoint. They had to ask us to move tables mid-meal b/c they had a large group coming in. We moved and they comped us glasses of prosecco. Nice touch. Very pleasant wait staff and delicious food.
We would definitely go again - with the friend who recommended it.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything was very nice.Everything was very nice.

They care!4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMSolid Player, without the "scene"Hosted a dinner party there. Was upstairs, plenty of room. Nice food, prep was nice, flexible for some kids meals, and decent value for the quality of the food and atmosphere. It was my first time, but other guests had been there frequently (more of a Burlingame Ave. than Broadway crowd), but were happy to eat there. So overall a solid experience and will go back for just the two of us.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a group celebrationWe had a group celebration dinner - food and environment were both excellent!4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat spot in Burlingame.Great spot in Burlingame.

Our family went for Easter lunch, and it was delicious. Excellent menu and wine list. Friendly and attentive service too. Perfect for a romantic evening, as well as special occasions and holidays. We'll definitely return.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently excellent experienceMy wife and I have a Friday night date tradition, and with a choice of all the restaurants in the mid-Peninsula area, we always seem to find ourselves back at Rocca. This is a family run restaurant with a difference: consistently excellent food, always served fresh and hot, attentive service, a nice wine list with remarkably good finds starting around $30. Of special note is the seafood and anything with the chef's special spicy marinara! The ambiance is lively because Rocca is always packed, but not so loud as to be obnoxious. Enjoy!3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMOnce again Rocca's serviceOnce again Rocca's service and food was wonderful! It made the evening complete!3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMAn excellent find!I took a group of nine (originally 12) to dinner for my mother's 70th birthday. I went there on the recommendation of a co-worker who lives in Burlingame. The people who own/work in the restaurant are very gracious and very patient. We had a couple of people in our party who couldn't eat certain things and the restaurant was very accomodating of special requests. The waiter suggested an excellent seafood pasta for me with mussels, fish and prawns as an alternative to the crab-stuffed lemon risotto, which they were out of. I'll definately be returning to try to get that dish. The alternative dish was excellent and a little spicy. The service was top notch. Better than I have had in many restaurants that were far more expensive.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMYou will always enjoy Roccas!We ate there around 8 and the restaurant was packed.Rocca's has an excellent menu with many choices. Because I have eatenThere many times, I have tried different items all excellent.Our guests had never been and were impressed.Salmon, the nights Ahi special, roast chicken, mixed seafood pasta all excellent.Also love the focaccia and garlic balsamic.
