“Hidden Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

Small and compact on two floors staff make the very best of the room and open plan kitchen makes you feel part of the whole atmosphere. We went on Valentines day and the restaurant was tastefully decorated to reflect the date and it was as always spotlessly clean. Staff were very attentive and of course the food is the best around and freshly cooked. Pastas fillet steak and butterfly garlic and chilli prawns perfectly cooked and presented.
Excellent once again!

“A wonderful restaurant!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013 via mobile

Well what can I say... La Rocca is possibly one of the nicest family run Italian restaurants I've ever ate at! The Chef and manager Arturo should be commended on his restaurant...this is a gem in Chorley!
We dined on the early bird menu, which offers fantastic choices for only £10.95 for three courses!! I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who likes wholesome home cooked Italian cuisine!

“Faultless!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

When you have a fantastic experience during the first time to a restaurant it's odds on you can never replicate it. How wrong you can be?
It's intimate atmosphere and genuine Italian food is a fantastic blend. If you have a fear of offal, and moving out of a comfort zone, worry not as the spicy chicken livers are astonishing!
With the wine flowing in authentic surroundings, no complaints, fantastic food our night just flew by! The Chicken Caccatori was superb as was the service, followed by a complimentary Limonchello rounded off the meal with a knowledge you'll be back soon!
A real taste of Italy in Chorley? You bet!

“Simply stunning Italian food - better than San Marcos, Dantes and Ital cottage etc”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

Have driven by La Rocca so many times and ignored it - more fool me! Had 2 visits and know I will not stop going back. Almost worth considering moving to Chorley for. Best spare ribs I have eaten at any Italian and the Piccante garlic breads (and pizzas my friends advised) are scha-mazing. Partner had livers and loved them - high accolade from him. I dream about the ribs. Went with work friends a month ago and one of the girls opted for pasta and declared it the best ever and she NEVER polishes off her plate. Must try a chicken dish next time though truly cannot wait to return will recommend you to all - belissimo and asta la vista, La Rocca x
