Nice place. The atmosphere is really enjoyable. Very typical Italian restaurant. Food was tasty. The caprese salad was a bit off this time. Basil was dry and not fresh. The balsamic vinaigrette was delicious. The pasta was really good. Service was cordial and attentive. Great spot for a bite on Broadway.

Recently an acquaintance told me about an Italian restaurant he recommended highly having eaten there several times, and is a local. Rocca was perfect for us: we like to go into Italian places with white tablecloths in a setting that could be in the Godfather, and have delicious cooking with good service and nice Italian wines. This one scored an A in all the above. I always eat veal but felt like a pollo parmigiana kowing that many places simply have too much cheese on an overcooked petti di pollo. Not here. It was perfection, perfectly cooked, tender, great red sauce, just the right parmigiana, accompanied by spaghetti with a wonderfully delicious homemade bolognese sauce. It was superb. Not to be outdone, wifey had a superb concoction of a napa cabbage salad with a divine sauce and cheese with BBQ prawns. It was a knockout. The table chianti was perfect. The bread pudding was some of the best we have ever had. Very good, attentive service, in a perfect surrounding. What a find!

We love this restaurant and visit often. We come not only for the delicious food but also for the service which is exceptional. The full service bar is also a plus. We have had many items on the menu and have never been disappointed. Can’t go wrong on any of the dishes. Don’t forget to try the bread pudding and coffee. Their coffee truly is the best. Enjoy-you won’t be disappointed.

Food was amazing! It is crowded and noisy though, and a curtain separates the tables from front door. It's cold and kind of annoying if you sit by the door, which I did. Wait staff was attentive and prices reasonable.

Yeah Rocca Mahn....this place the good one.

Fun spot, nice food. A lady friend took me there...and she works next door at the hair salon. You need to know that right ? ; )

Good place for family, friends, or like a business meal.
