My first time at Rocca - the tortellini were really good (and I was raised in Italy)!

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!

Overall a good restaurant. However "sauce" used on veal and steak sandwich caused the meat to be a little dry and not as tasty as it should have been. Service was excellent but server was
not all that friendly.

Went here to celebrate my Mom's birthday before dropping her off at the SFO airport for an international flight. The food was great and the menu options were extensive--it was difficult to choose what to order because everything sounded so good!

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.

This is my third visit to this establishment and I have enjoyed it every time. Get food and great service. Perhaps a bit dated decor but I love everything else.

What a lovely find! Rocca has a great setup with plenty of booth seating. The wine list was great and varied. Our salmon was grilled perfectly and the bread was delicious. They have gluten free pasta as well!

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.

Very good food, marred by spotty service and noise. Needs a better wine list and better selction of premium liquors.

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.

Rocca's is the real thing when it comes to traditional Italian cooking! Loved the calamari, veal scallopini, spinach and tiramisu!
