Roca Bar North's pizza and Italian salad give diners every reason to visit. But, the atmosphere and service cause us to carry out. Like so many locally owned restaurants that ignore the details of atmosphere, Roca Bar North has joined that crowd. Sit at the bar and you get enjoy all the mechanics and logistics of dishwashing, stored supplies, and trash. Not cool. The occassions that converted us to carry out diners make us wish it was a self-serve place. The wait staff had to be asked repeatedly for items we'd normally expect - silverware, another round of drinks. In fairness, that has not always been the case, but it should never be the case. Good training and supervision could fix this in a heartbeat.

We are passing through Indiana. After 12 hours in the car, with two kids, driving through a snow storm, we needed a break. The manager of our hotel suggested we go to Bar Roca. We were seated immediately and drinks arrived soon after. We thought we were in for a pleasant dinner, WRONG. Our waiter took our order then disappeared for a half hour. He came out once to refill water and told us there was a problem in the kitchen. Okay, I get it. Stuff happens. He told us our food was coming out soon. Then he disappeared from our table for 30 more minutes. Then he stopped making eye contact as he passed us. A different waitress brought my husband his cup of soup and garlic toast while the rest of us waited another 20 min with no acknowledgement from the waiter. Finally the food arrived for the rest of us. My son politely asked for ketchup. The waiter said "sure, right away" and disappeared. No ketchup, no drink refills, no eye contact. We had to flag down another waiter just to get out of there. Weirdest and worst restaurant experience of my life.

We have been loyal customers at Turoni's for years. That said, when Bar Roca opened on the North Side, we were excited to try it. The pizza is very good, the salad is a good blend of veggies and the service is terrific.

Pizza is thin crust and tasty. You can't go without eating the original Roca Bar salad, though. It is wonderful. Staff was attentive, food was delicious and it came out quick. Not packed on a Wednesday night. Great place for families.
