About Rocca Ristorante & Bar
At Rocca, we are passionate about quality, sincere friendly service, and our place in the local community. Situated in the heart of Hamilton’s conservation area, in a charming 19th century period property and former bank, at Rocca you can enjoy a dining experience in a sophisticated, family-friendly and ambient setting.
Allow us to welcome you for a relaxing meal for one, a business lunch, a catch-up with friends, a romantic evening or to enjoy quality time as a family. Whatever the occasion, be it a birthday or simply a weekday we welcome you warmly to Rocca!
At Rocca, our vision is to retain the authenticity of traditional, wholesome Italian cooking, in harmony with Scottish taste influences and the changing contemporary appetite of the 21st century. Our menu offers a selection of both classic and modern flavoursome Italian dishes, that friends of Rocca can enjoy time after time.
We use the best of authentic Italian ingredients, contrasted with locally sourced nods to iconic Scottish favourites, such as salmon and haggis. Whether you opt for a fine or a hearty plate, the choice is yours, with tempting desserts, Italian coffee and contemporary cocktails in popular demand for afters too.
Food and service were excellent. Waiting staff were helpful and attentive, wait time for food wasn't too long. Menu and quality of food was excellent. The restaurant was a bit on the cold side for my mother and some customers were wearing their jackets.
Great food and great service! So good to be back out after months of lockdown.
Food was amazing and great friendly workers. Will be back soon
Food and service fab , only setback was that we were outside and the weather was raining and cold which is not the restaurants fault but a heater would have made a big difference and we would have stayed longer , will be back again
I reserved an outside table for 2 friends and myself to celebrate one of their birthdays. The birthday girl opted for a steak and requested it to be medium to well done. When her steak arrived the plate was bloody and when she cut into it the steak was rare. The other 2 dishes were pasta which goes cold quickly and a side of fries. When the waiter was asked to remove the steak as it was underdone the other dishes were left on the table. We wanted to eat together and not have cold food either. We had to request that the other dishes were also taken back to the kitchen. When the steak was brought back the side order of Garlic butter was missing and no cutlery was available for the steak. Hence another wait. The manager provided us with a bottle of wine and took one of the pastas from the bill. All in all not the experience I had hoped for.
We waited 50 minutes for our first round of drinks and had 3 different members of staff approach us to ask us our orders again. My drink finally came and had lipstick on the glass , now whilst I appreciate you may have been busy and trying to keep Covid secure , dirty glasses are something that can easily be avoided . When it came to paying our bill we where overcharged by almost £20 and had to return to your restaurant to get this money back . We actually left early from our visit and rocca is somewhere we visit regularly and got takeaway when you where closed and I felt really disappointed at the service we received
Food was amazing and stag were lovely, felt safe due to the pandemic, would recommended!!
We loved getting back to Rocca this weekend. Food as high quality as always and service was great. We just missed our real alcohol with our dinner! We all has a non alcoholic version instead. Kids loved their menu too so it was a success all round! 👌
Loved being back after lockdown. Service was great as always, food and drinks amazing! Can’t wait to come back again. Also love the new Rocca rewards idea!
It was lovely to be back at our favourite restaurant. The staff and service were fantastic as usual. We felt very safe sitting enjoying our lunch. Thanks again
Fantastic day ... food and cocktails amazing 🤩 staff friendly and welcoming can’t wait to go back 😁
To Evan and staff thank you all for making my Sisters 50th surprise Lunch special great food and drinks as always great to see you all again and hope to see you all again soon
Lovely restaurant, friendly staff
Excellent food and service.
Outside area VERY cold, asked for patio heaters to be turned on, advised the gas ran out.. on a Saturday? Asked for a sweet menu, never arrived so we asked for the bill and they were quick with that. Lovely food as always, ordered take-away during lockdown, order was wrong but whatever we were given was still good. Attention to detail and the customers requests is what let it down unfortunately.
Food was fab will be back soon
Great food and great service.
Enjoyed our brunch. Saw the advert on Facebook and thought we would try it. So happy to get out after the lockdown.
As always, the food and service at Rocca are outstanding and I will continue to be a regular visitor now that we’re out of lock down. However, the only one small thing for me at the moment is the cold draft that comes in every time either of the doors are opened, which is worse now with the extra door to the outdoor terrace. The staff were great at trying to make sure they’re shut again, but they did often get stuck open for a bit which made it a bit chilly. Anything you could to sort that that would be great, thanks!
Staff were friendly and helpful. Food was well presented and tasted delicious
Excellent as usual , great service and the food is tremendous
My first lunch out with my friend since lockdown started in December. Got a table outside and enjoyed a large red wine or two. Great service from Andrew and Steven. Excellent food as always. Never been disappointed and will be back again for sure!
