First time at the restaurant and had penne alla amatricciana. It was the most delicious pasta I have had in a long time. It reminded me of the restaurants in north end of Boston. There cannoli was to die for. Will definitely go back there again I arrived there at place 10 minutes before nine while they were closing and... More

This is a wonderful place to eat great Italian food. You may have to search to find it but it is worth the drive for their great food. The pasta is always cooked so very well. Chicken tenders are made from scratch and so is the Bruschetta. Their entrees are delicious and come with soup or salad and a side.... More

Delicious stuffed artichoke which is hard to find in the area. Good pizza, and a reasonably-priced wine list with some surprising Italian selections.

Since we purchased a vacation home in North Port, we eat here often. It is the first dinner when we arrive and the last dinner when we leave. This trip they knew we were coming and it was my husband's birthday they had a table ready and a personal birthday card from the owners and staff. My husband and I... More

This is an outstanding Italian restaurant: great gravy, stuffed artichokes, al dente pasta, as it should be; tender veal - the list is lengthy. My wife and I have eaten here three times and have enjoyed all of the food- appetizers, salads and entres.....never had "room" for dessert but I bet those are great too. Co-owner Nicole leads a competent... More

Just found this restaurant and we were very pleased. I had the Chicken Rollatini Gorgonzolla and it was delicious. We were taken care of by the owner and she was very friendly and pleasant. As first time customers she explained to us that everything is made by order and the prices include a soup or salad and their homemade bread.... More

We had a great combo of the above. I couldn't stop eating the bread too. They didn't stop bringing it either.

Great variety of wonderful food. The best lasagna I have ever had. Also very good house wines. The couple that owns this place demands excellent service from their staff. There are many Italian restaurants in the are but are better than La Rocca.

Very authentic food and the owner is very accommodating. Very reasonable prices, with wonderful homemade dressing. The interior is tired and could use new curtains, wall hangings, table clothes-Excellent food again, could use a make-over.
