We always come for special occasions. This weeks trip was my mum's birthday. The food was delicious and the early bird menu is great value for money. A couple of people in our party had food off the main menu including desserts which we're rather small considering the cost nearly £5 saying that we will be back.

Rocca has a very family feel to it, the staff are all really friendly and will have a chat with the kids. The restaurant itself is nicely designed with a bar/waiting area before you enter the main restaurant. The menu is traditional Italian and offers a good range of pasta and pizzas which is what we generally order and they... More

Been twice now and can't say that I have been overly impressed. Italian food is my favourite but this place doesn't jump out at me. Both visits I ordered different and still not wowed! Every meal had nice tastes to a certain degree, my mouth wasn't Excited for another bite. I would return as it is a lovely welcoming atmosphere

I booked this restaurant after a real struggle to find a venue to accommodate approximately 40 of us without having to pay a huge deposit and pre order meals, which would have been a nightmare! We were made to feel very welcome from the moment we went in by the staff. We were seated and our orders duly taken, no... More

I visited here with a very large group of friends. We were shown to our seats and quickly given menus. The early bird menu was chosen by many of us and great value it was. £14.95 for 3 courses with a great variety of starters, mains and desserts is a steal! The bacon and mushroom salad for starters was very... More
