This place is tucked away in a small strip shopping center. It is unpretentious but surprisingly good, both food and service. Specials were quite innovative and presentation of food inviting. Would be nice if they could offered a full bar. The atmosphere lacks a bit but the food and service go a long way in making up for that.

Very good and freshly cooked Italian food. Excellent carafe of Italian wine but a bottle of sparkling water cost $8. Friendly and helpful staff. Not many tables occupied at 7pm, so lacks buzz. Overall an enjoyable experience and we will return for the food.

Service and food are good. Restaurant needs to refurbish. Furniture is tired. Prices are high for the ambiance of the restaurant.

Stopped by for dinner, it was the best italian dish I have ever had. Delicious fresh made salad, and dressing. The calamari dish is out of the world. Just wonderful. Can't help loving their warm homemade bread. Its worth the trip to the western end of North Port, near Warm Mineral springs. You wont be disappointed, Nicole and Chris are... More

Been here twice, I always try places more then once. Just to give a second chance if it was bad the first time around. Food was ok but not great. Service staff seems lost at times. I do feel this could be a great place, if a few changes in staff and service would be made. Don't charge 5 star... More

What a place!! Warm, homey, welcoming with good smells and friendly owners. It is our fist stop when we fly into our Heron Creek Home and the last place we eat. They have the best Italian food, if you give it a try you will keep coming back. At first we went to Venice but for Italian you must try... More

My family and I have been going to La Rocca for years. The food is fantastic, the service is very friendly and prompt…and the atmosphere is a cross between a neighborhood haunt and a small family restaurant. It will be one of your favorites once you try it.

This restaurant was a great accidental discovery for us! Quality of the food was exceptional at a reasonable price. Service was great and the owners are really nice people. If you're in the North Port area, this is a spot worth trying.
