The food is excellent. The chef sources locally where possible and uses the ingredients in creative combinations. The pasta is made fresh and the sauces are executed with perfection.
Outstanding food. Good service.
Took my sister to lunch. We’re from out of town and Rocca was a lucky find! We enjoyed a lovely leisurely meal. I prefer plain food so the waiter arranged for me to have grilled chicken breast, without any sauces, and steamed veggies. My partner and sister ordered regular, fancier entrees and cleaned their plates. All the dishes featured fresh local ingredients. Desserts were amazing as well. This place is a gem!!
Food was excellent as usual and the server was outstanding - disappointed gnocchi was not on the menu - scallops were perfect with some interesting flavors I never had with scallops - tuna tower was great - fresh crispy spicy - they also need to provide some Sam on the house with your espresso : - )
Totally enjoyed. We were 4 friends having dinner. We shared the appetizers. The meatball sliders were excellent. Mussels fresh and plump and the homemade potato chips with blue cheese were great. We asked for the blue cheese dip on the side. Our main dishes were excellent. I had the pork milanese and it was so tender and pounded thin that you didn't need a knife. The other dishes were all fish and all given high compliments. The chocolate lava cake was perfect!
My family and I went there for dinner for the first time last week. We were all very happy with our meals, with our service and love that it is a BYOB! Everyone can find something they like on their creative and delicious menu. You will not be disappointed! We are all looking forward to returning soon for another fantastic meal!
Met a friend there for lunch. I had never been there. Had salmon and it was delicious. It was comfortable and no one pushed us out. Very enjoyable and will be back and will recommend frinds.
Still the best and the most innovative too.
We dine out often and are thrilled to have found Rocca. It's BYOB, nestled in suburban Glen Rock. Farm to table, everything tasted fresh and delicious. Homemade Pappardelle bolognese and mussels apps were tasty, we dipped the crusty bread in the sauces after so you know it was good! Tried salmon, scallops swordfish and short rib entrees - every one was a hit, nice portions and perfectly prepared. A definite winner, we'll be back.
Really had a great experience at RoCCA, 8 of us. Food was exceptional, we all enjoyed our meals and it was a great value. Will definitely be back!
1st time here. Will definitely come back. Food was really good. With BYOB it becomes a great value. My wife had the Swordfish and I had the Chicken
Loved everything about this place! Delicious food for reasonable prices, great attentive staff & a byob!
I had a very delicious dinner. The appetizers and salads were unusual flavor combinations and quite tasty.
Rocca was recommended by a good friend, and true to her word, it was excellent. The service was superb, and the food was delicious. My friend and I both enjoyed our entrees, and would definitely come back with family and friends. My only recommendation would be a touch more ambiance with some special touches. Other than that Rocca truly ROCKED.
Always wonderful. Our favorite place!
My first visit to the establishment. Very nice, cozy and romantic restaurant. Very nice menu.
Highly recommend. Will be patronizing again.
Food was delicious! Great, friendly service. Limited menu, but lots of interesting choices. Loved the short ribs and gnocchi.
Our server, Anthony, was excellent and we have no complaints about our entrees...food is very good.
Great dinner! We had a large group but they were super accommodating and speedy. The food was excellent. It was a great way to spend dinner with friends on New Years Eve!
A great dinner we had. We shared the crispy olive salad and the kabocha squash soup, both yummy. For our entrees, we had the red snapper, salmon, and the bolognese, all delicious. For desserts, we had the chocolate cake and zeppoles with coffees. The service was gracious and had a nice evening. Thank you very much.
Food was not good Service was not good. Xxxxxxxxccxxxxxxxxxxxxxxccccccccccccccccccccccccccccvvvvvvvvvvvvv
We celebrated our 36 anniversary here with our family. The food was excellent and we were all happy with our meals. We shared calamari and the burrata apps. The fried olive and artichoke frisée salad was delicious. We had pasta, fish and short ribs and everything was cooked to order. Service with a smile and quiet atmosphere enabled us all to talk and enjoy the evening.
Christmas Eve so many came without reservations. We had reservations but still had to wait because the people arriving before us (without reservations) were given our table. I believe they were short a server, because service as a bit slow from the start. The wines were poured right away, but the designated driver waited an awfully long time for the iced tea! The scallops and the braised ribs were terrific as well as the salmon!
Was very disappointed . Service was AWFUL had to wait ten minutes just for a menu. Had to ask for bread. Selection was not good why on Christmas Eve so many items with meat?! No one even asked how our food was also we ordered two apps for three people, they gave us two pieces of ricotta toast for three people. Overpriced for what it was and honestly the fish dish my boyfriend ordered had a slight smell. We will not be back
The best Christmas Eve dinner enjoyed at Rocca..always a wonderful meal!
The service was perfect and our meal was creative and delicious. We would definitely recommend to others and we will be back again soon. Great local BYOB.
The food at Rocca usually does not disappoint. They have their classic staples that have remained like the mushroom tagliatelle or were put back on the menu popular demand, such as the PEI mussels. The service, however, it's always a disappointment. Ever since they got rid of their old maître d' and seasoned wait staff about seven years ago, it has not been the same. The waiters are aloof and not particularly willing to make accommodations. When they see a mixed a table of adults and children, they do not sweep in and ask if they could put the children's food in first. They seem more interested in chatting with each other than checking in with the guests. There is one bus person who has been there for many years and is always helpful with a great personality and a good memory for repeat guests!
Enjoyed this location, food was very good, nice place, while very attentive to you, wish some more space
Always good food, good atmosphere. Have been here many times and plan to continue coming back!
We always enjoy our meals at a Rocca. New menu, entrees somewhat limited, but they added more starters and small plates. My husband had the cavatelli with spicy meatballs and I had halibut with butternut squash risotto. Both were delicious! Service was friendly and attentive.
the small plates of pasta are the best pasta dishes in North jersey
We booked a 5pm reservation to bring our 5 month old and avoid ruining the experience for other diners. We were the first table of the evening and our little one mercifully slept the whole time. The service was friendly and helpful and the food was absolutely delicious. We had the calamari with hot peppers (perfectly light and crispy), seared tuna and an A+++ mushroom & truffle bolognese pasta with our BYOB cabernet and ricotta fritters with jam for dessert. All of their pastas are homemade and the chef regularly updates the dinner menu. We will be back!
The food was real good but being more aware of eating healthy, I would have liked if they had some green veggies on the menu or at least as a side dish to order. Other than that, everything was good except the gnocchi. Good but VERY little gnocchi in the dish.
Rocca is an upscale Italian restaurant featuring a very creative chef\owner Craig Levy. The menu changes seasonally and is always excellent.
WE HAD A GROUP OF 3 COUPLES THAT HAD BEEN TRYING TO GET TOGETHER FOR QUITE SOME TIME. WE DECIDED TO GO TO ROCCA SINCE WE HAD NOT BEEN THERE IN A WHILE. WE ALL ENJOYED THE FOOD, 4 OF US GOT THE SHORT RIBS, ONE HAD TUNA AND ONE HALIBUT. WE TRIED THE CRAB CAKE APPETIZER AND SOME SALADS. EVERYTHING WAS VERY GOOD AND THE DESSERTS WERE OUTSTANDING, DON'T MISS THE CANNOLI GELATO! SERVICE WAS VERY GOOD. WE WILL BE BACK.
The food is amazing. Our friends couldn’t stop talking about it. Thank you for such a lovely dinner!!!
What a great find. I love the fact that they offer half and full orders on many of the dishes. It allowed us to try more of their selections rather than having to choose between them. The halibut could not have been whiter or tastier. The pear ravioli was delicious. A nice twist on an old flavor. Pan fried gnocchi with butternut squash, and warm buttercup Brie. Could not have been any better.
We have dined on a number of occasions at Rocca and it was one of our favorites. However on this visit we were disappointed. The restaurant had decided to drastically change (limit) the menu, apparently the day before we dined there. Although we were told that the chef could make some of the items that had been on previous menus (and were shown on the Rocca website that same day) we ordered from the new menu. My wife had halibut, which came with brussel sprouts and couscous. My wife (and another diner at a nearby table) asked if they could get something other than brussel sprouts and were told spinach. The only things that I found to my liking were the pastas and egg plant parmigiana, which is what I had. No longer does Rocca offer daily specials, which for years on Wednesday was chicken marsala. To make a long story short, the meals were very good but very skimpy. I believe Rocca will lose a lot of business with this limited menu, no specials and smaller portions. There are many other good Italian restaurants in Bergen County and Rocca is off our list.
The most amazing appetizers I’ve ever had, the seasonal toast and risotto cake are amazing! We will be coming back for sure.
Amazing, our first time and lived up to our expectations and beyond. Can’t wait to return, the food was unique—this is not really an Italian restaurant. We’ll be back with more friends ASAP. Thanks to your gracious staff, always two steps ahead of our needs. Carrot cake was also “awesome.”
