“Great panizza and cake!”
Reviewed May 19, 2013

My friends and I love this place for their panizza. Kinda messy but its all.worth it. ;-)

Their dime cake is heavenly... Although lately they're nolonger serving that majestic cake. I'd do anything to have a taste of that cake again.

“Highly priced student's lunch”
Reviewed April 3, 2013

My son and I recently had a quick lunch at ROC at the Bahay ng Alumni, UP Diliman, We ordered Pesto Cream, Buffalo Chicken Wrap. Banoffee, Brewed Coffee and Sodas. Our total bill was around Pesos 600.00. It's a good thing I paid for the bill because he told me that he and his classmates could not afford the lunch at ROC. The lunch was average, nothing spectacular. Although, I enjoyed sipping my coffee with the Banoffee (the taste of the cake was very familiar), while waiting for my son accomplish some business inside the Bahay ng Alumni.

“Tasty Food”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

Do not be deceived by its simple facade. The resto serves up all time favorite food and recipes including pasta and sandwiches and other rice entrees. Be sure to order their cake which varies from day to day. I tasted the caramel and it just melts in your mouth. They have an al fresco area also but it's too hot to stay there. better to stay indoors.

“R-O-C...ROCKS!!!”
Reviewed May 30, 2012

I seem to enjoy eating in this place. It has a relaxed atmosphere but most of all I love the food here! I tend to go for their pastas (Italian Job) which i emmensely enjoy as well as their sandwiches (burgers ). All of the food here is served in generous proportions and more importantly are reasonably priced. You have to give it a try!!!

“Restuarant of Choice...but not really for dessert”
Reviewed August 15, 2011

It is a good restaurant offering the same kind of food as their neighboring Chocolate Kiss Cafe. It was brave of them to actually be right in front of the veteran, homegrown restaurant, but I think they're up to some competition. They have good variety of food in their menu (pastas, mains, appetizers) and the ambience is a bit more quaint and charming. A favorite of mine is the fried kesong puti (fried local white cheese). However, their desserts are sad and lackluster. Just go to the other side of the fence of dessert!
