I dine here for business and it is a favorite for my guests. Ample portions of pasta and salad offerings. Artichoke soup, crab cakes, caesar salad, and rigatoni with chicken are top choices.

Branzino was disappointing - dry and overcooked. Had it a couple of times before the pandemic. Was looking forward to having it again. Perhaps you have a different chef now?

Rocca has stood the test of time and hasn’t lost its charm and still has that cozy Italian feeling. It’s our favorite family go to!

We were visiting San Francisco and happened to find this place. We had bad luck with a lot of places for meals but this wasn’t the case with Rocca, the food was delicious, they served A LOT, and the staff was impeccable. We had an incredible time out.

Very bad experience overall. The waitress I think is part of the family was rude and abrasive. Went there to celebrate a birthday - after saying they would do something special for birthdays at the booking time she showed us the menu to pay and order and said they do nothing for birthday in front of the birthday person.

Great food. Nice service and very good value. Out door seating was nice once the heater clicked on. Indoors seemed a bit crowded (scary) and not many masks worn by customers.

It was so great to be able to eat indoors again and we couldn’t have picked a better location to dine in. The service was very attentive; the food was extraordinary; the restaurant was beautiful and the overall experience was amazing. Thank you for a great first indoor meal in almost a year.

This is literally my favorite Italian restaurant in the Peninsula. I love the staff, I love the food and the atmosphere is beautiful and feels like your on vacation. They play great music too. They always have amazing specials. All pastas are home made. Salads are outstanding and I love the home made clam chowder. I will be back MANY times.

The server was very kind and helpful. The food was delicious. Since we had to sit outside due to the current situation, it was a bit cold- but not the fault of the restaurant at all. The staff was kind and attentive.

Enjoyed a nice evening out with my wife, last Sat 11/21. We were greeted and seated on the main floor. We both started with a bowl of Minestrone Soup, that was hot and delicious. My wife had the Gorgonzola Salad and I had the Petto di Pollo Carciofi. Finished with coffee and Mocha Crunch Cake. Overall, we had a pleasant evening and look forward to returning, soon.

Great food, great service. We had the veal Milanese which came with pasta and vegetables. It was very authentic and reminded us of something we would get in Italy. Definitely will be back to try other dishes.
