Visited La Rocca on Monday Night. The food was fabulous. Bruschetta is one of the best that we have had in years. The Chilean Sea Bass was amazing. Service was very good. They had music and it was very entertaining. Will definitely go back again!

Rude service and a long wait for everything including asking numerous times for the check. This place is not worth the trouble. The decor is dated and old. There were not many people there so I don't know why the service was so poor. I'd...More
