Nicole knew we were coming in and made the best wedding soup for my husband. It was fantastic It is always the first place we go to eat when visiting our Florida home.

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.

The food here is impeccable. We have been twice now during our one week stay in North Port. The salad is fresh and the bread is warm and toasty. The marinara sauce and the pink sauce are both great. The staff is friendly and welcoming and the whole experience is everything you want in a restaurant. We will definitely be... More

WE or my entire family have never had a bad meal in this place. You are greeted when you come in the door and treated amazing when there. All food is cooked to order, I have so many favorites at this place I have a hard time picking. The white sauces are delicious, the chicken parm is fantastic, the sauces... More
