Had a wonderful New Years Eve meal. It was beautifully decorated, energetic vibes. Everything we ordered was done to perfection and brought out at a comfortable pace. All this and it was New Years Eve and it was perfect.

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.

just took my dad for his 87 birthday. our waiter turned out be a person we already knew. food was great, service was great, prices are not cheap, but good places are just not cheap. when it was all said and done, we had a terrific time, and the food and service was all we could have wanted.
we will be going back again.

Lovely spot where two couples gathered for a nice reunion dinner on a Sunday evening. We were quickly ushered to a very nice table for four right by the front window and quickly served cocktails even though only two of us had arrived. High point of my meal was the Gorgonzola salad---Outstanding! My wife had the tasty Eggplant entree and I the Farfalle. Both were excellent but as is the case with many Italian restaurants, we could easily have split the entrees. If there was a down side, it was the group of ten that came in about half way through our meal on their way home from the latest 49er loss. They were drowning sorrows more loudly than any of us would have chosen but I will certainly return.

We found Rocca's through OpenTable when we were in Burlingame on business. The menu was varied and all of us found more than one choice to select from -- it was a difficult choice! We all were more than happy with the choices we made, and had a lovely bottle of wine to complement it all. The bread pudding for dessert was wonderful too!

The food was ok. I expect better flavor for the price. The fish was cook perfectly. I didn't know it would be breaded, so I had to scrape off the breading. The vegetables were under cooked. I did try the tortellini my co-worker had and it tasted really good. The table was very clean. Had the chocolate cake, it was very dry.
