    Caesar salad was watery and uninteresting. Pasta was excellent. Prices are a little high.

    Everything was great! But noise levels were too loud for us. I think tables too close and some people near by were very loud while talking. Granted it was Valentine's Day but it did kinda ruin the experience for us. But again, food, service, and ambience were excellent!

    The restaurant was a great find. It was absolutely AMAZING from the time we entered the restaurant to the time we left. This place is a 10!!!!! We had a reservation (I recommend), seated promptly, our Waiter (Mark) was very prompt with everything. Mark recommended we start off with the Crab Cake which were fabulous. We split a Caesar Salad, main course, I ordered the Linguine Fra’ Diavola which was the BEST Linguine and Clams in White wine that I have ever tasted. My husband had the Pollo Piccata served with nicely roasted potatoes and mixed vegetables in which he said the Chicken Breast was cooked to perfection. He loved his meal. Dessert was Bread Pudding Maple brandy sauce with a creme anglaise. Let’s just say we ate all of it. Can’t wait to go back. The staff was amazing from start to finish.

    Beef carpaccio appetizer was delicious and a generous portion for 2. The fillet of sole special was well prepared but the side dishes - rice and steamed veggies - were just average. NY cheesecake was a huge slice and delicious but it needed more accompaniment, like more berry sauce or fresh berries. Service was excellent and the restaurant itself is beautifully decorated.

    It was our anniversary celebration. The dinner and service was superb. Love this place. It is busy and bustling though, just so you know. Also, has a hopping, energetic bar. We sat upstairs. We recommend that.

    I have been going to Rocca for many years and I always have a very nice experience. Last night (Wednesday evening) I went but service and food was not the same. It was a party of two. I received my food first and it took a few minutes for my son to get his pasta entre and we had to asked for parmesan cheese. I didn't enjoy my salad as the lettuce did not seemed/tasted fresh and service was unusually slow. Maybe they were short on staff. Will definitely go again and hope to experience the same great service and food I have on previous visits. Thank you.

    Very disappointed with the food. It had very little flavor and the bread was terrible. Also, the quality of the dinner didn’t deserve the outrageous price. My recommendation is to pass on this overrated eating establishment.

We were there on a busy night during Christmas weekend and the house was completely full but there were no glitches at all in the service and everyone was happy with their meal. The wonderful staff should be commended.

    My first time at this restaurant. It was busy, but I had reservations and got there about 20 minutes early. We sat at the bar and had a drink waiting for our table. We were seated before our due time. The waiter was fantastic, it was a bit noisy, but that’s OK. The food on the other hand was amazing. I had the veal scallopini which was very good. For dessert I had their bread pudding, which is probably one of the best bread puddings I have ever had. definitely going back there.

    We had a wonderful time at Rocca; the staff was friendly, server attentive-but not overly so, and food delicious. There was also a nice selection of wine, many of which were reasonably priced and tasty. We felt that the cost of dinner was reasonable for the experience. We would gladly go back again.

    Celebrating a friend’s birthday. With reservations Our party of 4 enjoyed our dinner. We had the specials including lasagna, and grilled sea bass, both delicious! One in our party had the veal Marsala, cooked to perfection and delicious. We tried the desserts of tiramisu, spumoni ice cream, mocha cream cake and the special lava cake. All were great! We couldn’t decide which we liked best. We loved them all! Service is efficient and everyone was friendly and pleasant! We’ll be back!
