I had the privilege of traveling to Italy 7 years ago. Since I have returned, I was not able to find food similar to what I ate while in Naples and Rome until I walked into this place last year. Now, I make it an effort to eat each here at least once while I am in the Burlingame area.... More

I was skeptical dining here at first, but trying new restaurants should always be taken as a good move. Turns out, it was a great move! Food was delicious and authentic. Simple dishes but flavorful and tasty. Prices are bit expensive for small portions. Service is up to par. We definitely wanna go back if we crave for Italian food... More

While in the San Francisco area near the airport we asked the concierge about local restaurants. They asked if we liked Italian and when we said yes they suggested this local. Arrived about 6:30 and were promptly seated. We ordered a drink and appetizer. The waiter was quick to return and apologize for not bringing out their rolls but he... More

This is a one of a kind place. I was in town for a conference. I was looking for good food and good wine. I found that and so much more. I sat at the bar. Jessica was my bar tender the first night. The service was great. It was a little slow because they were slammed. But the company... More

We are staying the night here prior to our eparture for Central America. My wife wanted Italian, so of course, I hit Trip Advisor to see what was available. This restaurant had great reviews for the most part, so we decided to give it a try. We had the bruscetta, beet salad, their seafood linguini special, and the shrimp, scallops... More

My husband and I had planned to be dining in San Jose on 2/10/17, but those plans got cancelled at the last minute and we needed to find a dinner spot near our hotel in Burlingame. I looked for ratings of nearby restaurants, and came across Rocca Ristorante. It was a short drive from the hotel, and even though we... More

We came here with a group and we were not disappointed. The food was very good as was the service. Both the chicken and the salmon was very nice and well prepared.

The food was ok, but expensive, as everything in the Bay Area. The waiter start discussing with us because of the tip. As we was on business travel, the amount of tips was limited by the company. Even when I explained this, the waiter keep complaining. And his English was horrible.

The bread we started with was great. Beet salad was split between two people and it was delicious. We each had plenty. Ravioli Bolognese was good; my only complaint would be that the pasta wasn't quite as soft as I would've liked, but if you make it too soft I guess you run the risk of the ravioli falling apart....
