Had a lovely lunch to celebrate my birthday. There were 6 of us. They were wonderful splitting salads. The presentation was pleasing and everyone seemed to enjoy their entrees.

We really enjoyed the old-time Italian feeling to this restaurant! So many Italian restaurants have been modified to reflect fusion of California cuisine. Not this one...good old Italian all the way! I would definitely recommend it.

Service was great and the food was delicious. From the greeter to the server we were able to be seated immediately and the server quickly give us our drink and bread. Since we know what we want in 10 minutes our food arrived and it was warm and delicious... highly recommended 👍🏻

Our server was excellent, very polite, friendly and helpful. Ambience was nice and we had a leisurely dinner (2+ hours) without feeling rushed at all. However, food was just okay. Fried calamari appetizer was overcooked. Linguine with fresh mussels and clams was kind of fishy tasting. Fresh halibut special was not a very generous size piece of fish.

Friendly greeting. No waiting. Nice menu, full bar. Our waiter was helpful with menu options and attentive. Caesar salad was delicious. My husband had the carpaccio appetizer and wouldn’t even share a bite! Too good to share he said. Dipping sauce for a nice selection of breads was a delicious mix of herbs and garlic. My saltimboca was tasty but demiglace was a little overpowering. Others had salmon and the seabass which was a special. Both looked delicious, too.
Will definitely come back.

Service was spectacular. It’s not a huge restaurant, but I counted 5 people working in the kitchen, 5 in the dining room, plus the bartender. Service couldn’t be better. Food arrived within 10 minutes of ordering, and we weren’t rushed. Food was hot and well prepared, and delicious. This is a great place to go on Broadway.

This was the best Italian food I've ever had....exquisite. Sit at the bar with Tony for an exceptional experience. The only bad thing about Rocca is you'll never feel the same about your formerly favorite Italian restaurant.

The people at the restaurant were great. Our server was very accommodating. The one issue was of course the noise but other than that the venue is really very limited

Our first time at Rocca and we plan to be regulars! Outstanding food, and atmosphere. Loved the Vegas style music. Staff is so nice and helpful. Went here for lunch for my mom's 80th birthday and she loved it. Home made Clam Chowder was amazing. Our family usually judges a restaurant by their chowder and this was off the charts. Filled with LOTS of tender clams. Pasta dishes out of this world. Skirt steak and fresh fish was amazing. Can't wait to go back.

It was our first time to eat at Ristorante Rocco. We were celebrating a friend’s birthday. We start with bread those were very good. I ordered the Clams & Mussels Fettuccine - the seafood did not taste fresh, the sauce was a little salty to my taste, but the fettuccine was cooked to perfection. My friend ordered the Sausage Fettuccine and it was good. My sister enjoyed her Beet Salad. For dessert, we loved the Bread Pudding & the Tiramisu. They even gave my friend a complementary cheesecake as a birthday treat. The service here was exceptional. I will recommend this restaurant to my friends & family.

Lovely neighborhood restaurant; attentive service and comfort Italian dishes. My SO & I shared a perfectly composed Caesar salad, followed by the lasagna special, which was delicious. Great wine selections and cocktails too. The bread with olive oil for dipping is a nice way to start the meal.
