Phenomenal experience from beginning to end! Arriving 10 minutes pasted our reserved time, we were greeted by a lovely host who seated us to our reserved table. They saved us a great booth which gave us a view of the entire restaurant! The ceilings are high and gorgeous and so are the little decorations they add to make guests feel the touch of Italy!
Mitri provided exceptional service! Rocca provides warm focaccia bread and a side of the HEAVENLY olive oil/balsamic vinegrette + herb and garlic dip to start! We started with a salad which for two would have been $19, but he suggested the individual size and separated the dish into two for us. Next we had...what I believe are the BEST crab cakes ever!
My partner ordered the fettucuni with sausage and I ordered the butternut squash gnocchi! The food tasted super fresh and home made!
Finally the restaurant read my note on my open table reservation and provided a dessert + candle for my partner to blow out as we were celebrating his birthday. I am very pleased with my experience and highly recommend anyone who loves Italian to give it a try! And special thanks to Mitri!
Great dinner great lunch
Will go again
Service was excellent
Food temperature perfect! Attentive waiter. Flavors were tantalizing!
Great menu choices! Ambiance perfect. Loved the eggplant appetizer and my pasta dish with vegetables and sausage. Service couldn’t have been better! Bread delicious, wine options good. Will definitely be back!
I’ve never had a bad meal there! Food is excellent and the service and hospitality is fantastic. Great neighborhood gem.
Rocca is first class Italian food. Some of the dishes take me back to my childhood in an Italian American family in NY. Recommend any of the pastas. Went there with a business group and everyone enjoyed their meal. We were there for business, but it sure looks romantic.
We very much enjoyed our dinner experience here. The decor is very attractive and creates a warm and inviting ambience. We especially liked the focaccia bread with the olive oil/vinegar dip. The focaccia was actually outstanding but the other bread that came with it was kind of rubbery. The food was excellent, but I was a little disappointed that the seafood pasta on the menu only included fish and mussels. I usually like to order that type of meal, but I prefer to have it with seafood such as prawns, scallops, calamari, and maybe just a few pieces of fish. That's just a personal preference for those in our party, however, so maybe that wouldn't bother other people. All in all, I would definitely come back to this restaurant.
My absolute favorite restaurant in the bay area! A trip to San Francisco and the surrounding areas is not complete until you've dined at Rocca's. Crown jewel of Burlingame.
Surprised that restaurant exceeded our expectations. We based our decision to come here based on reviews. The food and service were terrific. We’ll be back.
The food and service were amazing!
Delicious dinner with excellent service!
awesome food... the skirt steak was delicious-- will return for that meal
To much sauce on the spaghetti and lasagna and would be better to lighten the sauce.
Good local restaurant. Food was very flavorful.
Met long time good friends that live 75 miles away. Our party of 6 loved this restaurant so much we turned 4 months later. Lovely attentive service with excellent food choices for meta eaters & our vegan friends. Our waiter was so attentive & kind he made the evening that much more enjoyable.
Cute, authentic, and comfortable place with excellent food. We had the branzino and and the tortellini. Both were very good, and the latter was excellent. We also appreciated that the noise level was low, making it easy to talk.
Was there for lunch. Napa Cabbage salad with grilled prawns was outstanding. Two of us had this. Other person had linguini and clams. Also very good.
this place was great.
Staff was friendly
Food was great
Wonderful restaurant, staff and service!!
While there are a variety of items on the menu I believe that the menu is limited The owner was very gracious in that we had originally had a reservation for seven and it ended there was only three of us there.
We enjoyed a family dinner in this cosy restaurant. Good pastas & very friendly service. The guests seemed to be small groups of people enjoying friends-together type dinners.
It is always a wonderful experience dining at Rocca's. We love the neighborhood ambience and great food!
Great place for date night, a special occasion, or celebration. The waiters are the best! My water glass was always full. It's a treat to go to a restaurant where the wait staff really cares about the restaurant and patrons eat at their establishment. Very rare in the Bay Area. For a person who always tips 20%, this was one of those events were I upped it to 25% and it was worth every cent.
Rocca Restaurant was very enjoyable for our friends dinner. The waiter was very knowledgeable attentive, and friendly. I ordered the salmon and it was flaky, moist and very flavorful. My friends ordered the lamb shanks in the wine reduction sauce, and the seafood fettuccine. We were all very satisfied. The ambience was nice, but we chose to sit upstairs because it was quieter than the downstairs tables.
This could be the worst restaurant experience on the peninsula
The waiter rushed us
The food was awful
Had no flavor
Thank god for salt
You’re better off at Olive Garden - save your money
Great place to dine. Friendly staff with great service. Fun place for cocktails and wine. Food was very good. Enjoyable time and will certainly be back
Having decided on Italian, Ristorante Rocca seemed a logical choice, and it proved to be a fortunate choice, too. Our small party had a great table, and our waiter was very helpful with splitting, since two of us find most restaurant servings to be overwhelming. We had salads and pastas, and both the ravioli and the gnocchi were excellent. The list of wines by the glass was diverse, and each of us had a different wine, all good.
Very hospitable, amazing pasta, crepe brûlée to die for.
The menu has a perfect variety. I have never been disappointed with a meal there.
Love having dinner here before I head up to SF for theatre. Food is always delicious, service is prompt but not rushed. Great value.
The pasta was al dente and clams delicious! Our waiters were friendly and knowledgeable. When my friend dropped his napkin someone picked it up and immediately replaced it with a clean new one...awesome service! Bruschetta was one of the best we’ve had. The branzino had crispy edges but a moist and very tasty fillet. Definitely a repeat visit!
We had the best birthday dinner for my daughter at Rocca's - the service was fantastic and everything was delicious!
First time at the restaurant and I was not disappointed. Waitstaff was very attentive, food was delicious, wine was good. Overall a wonderful experience!
Wonderful food and incredible service!! We met friends and had an outstanding meal and were treated so well! We will be back !!
Always a pleasure to dine out here. The food is excellent, service is wonderful!
Great food and Ambiance. Real authentic Italian food.
Rocca continues to provide excellent food with courteous and prompt service. Have always had an excellent experience there.
Very nice dinner, my guests all enjoyed their meals.
Delicious pastas and salads. Love the linguine fra Diablo with lots of fresh clams and mussels. Ravioli with bolonese was also a hit with the group. Highly recommend the Gorgonzola salad with pecans. Great service and reasonably priced wines.
We had a delicious dining experience.
We’re looking forward to our next visit!👍👍
