My husband and I had planned to be dining in San Jose on 2/10/17, but those plans got cancelled at the last minute and we needed to find a dinner spot near our hotel in Burlingame. I looked for ratings of nearby restaurants, and came across Rocca Ristorante. It was a short drive from the hotel, and even though we... More

We came here with a group and we were not disappointed. The food was very good as was the service. Both the chicken and the salmon was very nice and well prepared.

The food was ok, but expensive, as everything in the Bay Area. The waiter start discussing with us because of the tip. As we was on business travel, the amount of tips was limited by the company. Even when I explained this, the waiter keep complaining. And his English was horrible.

The bread we started with was great. Beet salad was split between two people and it was delicious. We each had plenty. Ravioli Bolognese was good; my only complaint would be that the pasta wasn't quite as soft as I would've liked, but if you make it too soft I guess you run the risk of the ravioli falling apart....

We were looking for a place to eat near SFO and drove into Burlingame. We were lucky to find a parking spot and this restaurant was a few steps away. We both had the Gorgonzola salad and a special called pasta pescatore. The former was good but the portion was small relative to the cost. The seafood pasta dish was... More

As soon as you walk into Rocca you know it will be a good experience. The restaurant has a very cozy old world vibe, it's elegant but casual in the way that only California can be. There's a main dining area and a small upstairs balcony. The decor is warm and welcoming with frescoes over the bar area and an... More

The good: service, ambiance, location, wine list. Caesar salad and Lamb shank both very good. Wine list had a nice variety of domestic and imported. The bad: Some dishes not as tasty as expected. Inconsistent. Several of us ordered linguini tutto mare some with white sauce and I with red. Others had scallops and shrimp in addition to clams, mussels... More

Lovely local Italian. Service is outstanding and food is reliable. Love the local feel. Like "Cheers", everybody knows your name. Surprisingly complete full bar for the size of this place. Best value for table device in Broadway.

Our dinner here was pleasant enough. The atmosphere on a Sunday evening is nice, not too noisy, and the service was very attentive. The salads and pastas we ordered were nothing special, but the portions were generous. My husband's lamb was pretty good.
