“Rocca Rocks”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 November 2013

We had one last evening in the Bay Area, staying at a hotel near the airport. With luck, I found Rocca Ristorante. It was a $15 taxi ride each way from our hotel, but we thoroughly enjoyed our experience. Great cocktails. Exceptional service. The food was truly perfect. We shared a Caesar salad and each had a fish entrée: perfect mussels and clams in a wine and garlic broth and a excellently grilled piece of salmon. The tiramisu was one of the best. Thank you Rocca, we are glad we found you.

“Nice lunch”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 November 2013 via mobile

We had a nice lunch here, but it was not very memorable. I liked the spices that were in the olive oil. I had the beet salad which was very average and my friend had a pasta and cheese dish.

“Great atmosphere but only average food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 September 2013

Rocca lookked great and we were promptly seated and served. However the food was only average. Several items on the menu were not available. Starters of clamss for my wife was good. My own crabcakes were Ok, but spoiled by being overspiced which meant you could not savour the crab. Special item of sole (US$28) lacked flavour and was overcooked. My wifes salmon ( US$27) was very salty. So we were disappointed.

“Great service - good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2013 via mobile

Very good Italian restaurant. Try the Calamari to start. Excellent pasta dishes and if you don't see exactly what you want "challenge" the chef. Very good bar and wine list and extremely friendly and helpful staff. Only problem is parking which is basically non existent on the Main Street. Find the restaurant and then look for a parking lot on the side street just to the east. You can't go wrong this restaurant.
