Booked a table for 2 on a Friday night, arrived and was promptly sat down. Service was very fast and almost felt rushed! Was very busy and our overall rating of the food was average. We ordered crab spaghetti and calzone pizza and they were ok but nothing special, can't complain for the price we paid but do know better... More

Christmas dinner party. I enjoyed food as I found it to be a lot better than the usual Christmas party. My wife had the spinach and ricotta cannelloni and wasn't impressed.

We recently called for a meal again at the Rocca to celebrate our aniversary. A nice wine with our meal was perfect for our celebration. The staff are friendly and helpfull which makes for a relaxing atmosphere. We are returning again soon..... G+T from Thornton.

First time I've been and the last. A group of 7 of us went recently to celebrate a birthday. There was no pleasant greeting when we arrived and took ages to be shown to our table. I've never met such a group of disinterested waiters. To say the service was slow is an understatement. The food we had when we... More

Nine of us went here for a family once a year get together . I was a little doubtful of having Italian on Sunday afternoon but it was great. All the meals came out together and everyone was pleased The staff were very good with everyone including a five year old

I'd read the mixed reviews so wasn't sure what to expect but I can honestly say that every one of us really enjoyed our food. Everything well cooked and presented,... More

The welcome was fine, table was fine, starters were really good and some mains were BUT the three pizzas we orderef were awful!! The bases appeared to be pre-made/shop bought? My vegetarian one tasted of burnt plastic and was... More

Starters were nice but mains were very poor three of the pizza's had very little topping and were bland and tasteless desserts... More

Came here last night with 3 other couples to celebrate our anniversary. All the food was absolutely beautiful. Everybody's plate was cleared which is always a good sign. I had king prawns on bruschetta for starters the sauce they came in was to die for so tasty and the prawns tasted fresh and were delicious. Main course I had the... More
