Named in homage to the town of Glen Rock and the building in which it is located, Rocca is the Italian translation of ‘rock fortress.’ Opened in 2004, Rocca features an innovative Farm-to-Table menu and a warm and inviting atmosphere, perfect for lunch, dinner and private parties.

Beginning in 2011, Chef Levy spearheaded the Farm-to-Table movement in Northern New Jersey. While he has always procured seasonally fresh, high quality ingredients, he routinely sources local farms for produce, cheese and grass fed meats. Housemade pastas, focaccia, mozzarella, pastries and ice cream remain staples. Favorite "Rocca Classic" dishes are still represented while he injects unique New American cuisine with locally sourced flair.

Come and taste what New Jersey diners have been experiencing for over 13 years!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!
