Rocca Ristorante Ratings and Reviews
The service was excellent.We had plenty of time to order and the wait time between items was excellent. We did not feel rushed even though it was one of the busy nights-Valentines day. Everyone from the bus boy to the waitress to the manager is kind and welcoming. We had the crabcakes, beet salad, Caesar salad, lamb shank dinner and the halibut. For dessert we had the tiramisu. Delicious!
We took our two aunts who are in their 80s & this restaurant was perfect for them. The calamari and the raviolis were delicious, but my husband was less than thrilled with his linguine & muscles. The restaurant was quiet enough to carry on a conversation & the service was attentive but maybe too quick to take away your not empty wine glass. I would go back if I lived closer to Burlingame.
Really lousy experience. Calamari appetizer was awful. Overdone, chewy to the point of hardly edible, all breading, little actual calamari. Worst I've ever had. Also had gnocchi with pesto. Bland, almost no taste whatsoever. I ate half of it and then wondered why I ate any of it.
Sercice was attentive to an agonizing extreme. Every two minutes they wanted to clear something, Wondered if we were finished. Like they could hardly wait for us to leave (which actually we couldn't). Through all the attentiveness, I had to ask for more water, more wine, and more time to eat!
Place is also extremely noisy.
I'll never go back. Ever.
We were celebrating our daughter's birthday with our 3 1/2 year old grandson and our waiter was wonderful, including him in the ordering process, bringing him his "drink" and accommodating him with a smaller glass to avoid spilling, offering him ground pepper and grated cheese for his pasta. He loved being included.
We thoroughly enjoyed our evening - the food was fabulous & our waiter made it that much more special.
We would highly recommend Rocca to everyone that enjoys food & great service.
Fabulous Birthday celebration we were 6 women. Lovely round table so we could all interact. Special attention by the accordion player which we all enjoyed! Food was SUPERB! Service was outstanding! The Lady Hostess with the long dark hair always great! Everyone was very pleased.
The interior of the restaurant is very beautiful; I really liked the ambiance. I also liked that it was quiet enough that I could have a good conversation. They have a nice variety of choices on their menu and the dish I ordered (ravioli Bolognese) was very good. Pricing seemed slightly on the high side, but not too bad. The service was adequate, but the waiters seemed a bit standoffish to me. All in all, I found it a very good venue for my business lunch and hope to go back to try more things on their menu.
We attended for a birthday party. There were two children under 3 in our party. They were very accommodating with a high chair and room for the stroller, not disturbing other diners or wait staff. Cocktails were well mixed, fair portions. All food from salmon to gnocchi was hot, served not in a hurry and tasty veggies and potatoes as escorts. Wait staff was attentive without being intrusive. Will go again.
I cancelled the third course while I was still having my second course but the server told me that: chef already “fire” the course ! he offered me to take home the salmon....I said “ok. I am not that kind of person that likes to argue with the manager or peers , I work in this business and I know I much is difficult make happy the guest however , you lost the opportunity to me to recommend your restaurant to someone else and especially to come back!
I've eaten at Rocca several times. This restaurant has a gorgeous interior and offers delicious, seasonal menu selections in a welcoming, neighborhood setting. There is a lovely bar and the cocktails are on point. The staff are nice, knowledgeable about the menu and happy to answer any questions.
Was sitting in the hotel dreading another dinner away on the road. Got motivated and found this place not far from the SFO Hyatt. Used the on line booking a table app which was just perfect. Wish I remembered the waiter's name, he made my meal perfect. No rush, nice relaxing meal is just what I needed. House Chianti was very good too! All in all very nice.
We haven't been at Rocca in a while just because of life being busy. We went after our daughters volleyball game and booked immediately for an 8:30pm dinner. Got in no problem..The food was absolutely delicious...the tortellini with bacon and peas in a light cream butter sauce was amazing. The alfredo with rock shrimp and scallops my friend had and loved it. Waiters & staff always attentive! We will definitely go back there again!
Rocca is one of our favorite restaurants; the ambiance, food, and service are excellent. We were disappointed this time, only , because we all wanted to order the three dinner specials, and when our server returned to take our order, none were available. We did enjoy our second choice.
