I had high expectations about this restaurant but sadly it wasn’t to be. We booked in advance to be sure of a table but when we got there seem be some confusion about our booking but we were eventually led upstairs to a table. The diner on the next table was on his hands and knees trying to stop his... More

Ate there tonight with 17 others at a leaving party. Embarrassingly bad food and exceptionally poor service. Stuffed mushrooms to start, dry, overcooked and gritty. Main was a small portion of carbonara, tastless, no cheese, covered it in black pepper to try and get some flavour. Dessert, one scoop of VERY cheap ice cream, no wafer or sauce. Service staff...

My husband and I had pasta and both dishes were simply amazing! The portions were very generous, the price reasonable and the food extremely tasty. We will definitely be going there again, best Italian we've had in a long time. Brilliant!

Visited with husband and son for my birthday tea. We have been to La Rocca on previous occasions and enjoyed the food, this time we were not disappointed. I loved the great Lasagne, and son devoured the Margarita pizza. Consistently good food at very competitive prices. Yes the alcoholic drinks aren't cheap, but I go to restaurants for the food...

So many people had recommended this restaurant to us that we felt we had to try it. We was amazed at the quality of the service and the food. Why have we not been before! Best lasagne I have ever had and my husband said it was the best pizza he had ever eaten and we have eaten in restaurants... More

As I live quite near to La Rocca, I am always delighted when friends choose to eat there when we arrange to go out for a meal. I have never had a bad meal there. This week, I visited with three friends, two who hadn't been before, and they were amazed. The three courses for 11.95 was excellent value(check availability).... More

We have been twice now to this small, inconspicuous restaurant situated on the by-pass road - opposite the baths. We arrived on both aoccassions around 7pm and we were the only customers initially. We found the staff to be pleasant and helpful, showing us to a table in the window. Both my wife and I opted for a pizza each,... More

The service was pretty poor from the moment we entered. The staff didn't seem to have a clue about what they were doing, what food and drinks they had on offer, which table number was which or even about who had ordered and who hadn't. We ordered a bottle of prosecco which my husband had to open himself before the... More
