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.
The restaurant was very busy for a Monday evening with several large group bookings. There were only 2 members of staff serving and they were rushed off their feet. This led to a very long delay in getting plates cleared, ordering more drinks and a dessert. The quality of the food clearly suffered due to pressure on the kitchen. Our meal was for a special occasion and we left feeling quite disappointed.
Very busy night we were there but service and food were excellent.
Friendly, helpful and very welcoming.
Always a friendly welcome, varied choice of delicious food
First time having sunday roast and it was deliscious no room for anything else plate overflowing with meat an gravy very yummy
It was quiet in restaurant being a Sunday lunchtime. The manager and waitress couldn’t have been more attentive. Food was excellent and VFM. We will definitely be back.
Fabulous food. Lovely restaurant really clean and modern Staff very professional as well as being friendly Will definitely be back
Expensive, very rushed and the food wasn’t that tasty. Inviting looking building but the food didn’t meet our expectations.
Dear Mr Lakin, We are sorry to read that you were underwhelmed with your recent visit to Rocca. We pride ourselves on offer high quality, freshly prepared means representing good value for the quality produce we use from our local suppliers, Italian imports and skilled Chefs. Your feedback is very important to us, especially as it is significantly below our average 4-5star rating. We have clearly not satisfied you and for that we are disappointed. We also would like to offer an apology if you felt rushed as well at a time that we did not need the table back in a hurry at all at the time of your visit. We do try to assess the pace that suits our guests, trying to neither be too relaxed and implied slow, nor overly efficient with implied haste. It sounds to me as though you desired a slower more relaxed service, and that we failed to realise this. If you would like to take the time and either email us back in more detail with what went wrong on your evening (your meal and service) we would really appreciate it and it would help us improve our offering. Alternatively, please feel free to contact myself, manager Evan and I would be pleased to speak to you. I would like as a courtesy to offer you a 10% goodwill discount should you choose to join us again, as thanks for your feedback. Thank you for your time once again. Best Regards, Rocca
Food delicious as usual. Great cocktails, lovely restaurant and staff. We will be back soon.
Entertainment and service excellent!
Celebrating my daughter’s 21st birthday. Brilliant food. Can’t find any negatives.
Our meals were beautiful, one of the best fillets steaks I've had, however, we did wait 50 minutes for our meals to be cooked and although I understand steaks can take some time, it would have been nice to have been given warning of the cooking time or a brief update during our wait. Instead I had to mention the issu to waiting staff. Despite this, myself and family will dine again in rocca very soon!
Excellent as usual, although the restaurant was quiet
We enjoyed our meal. Good variety of food choice. Relaxed atmosphere
Excellent wee day for our daughters birthday , she really loved it as she has never been in before. She will be back. Thanks again.
First time visiting Rocca. Greeted warmly, lovely table by the window. The food was outstanding, couldn't fault it. For me the pate was delicious, the Caledonian chicken suberb followed by yummy sticky toffee pudding. Looking forward to our next visit
Great friendly service showing a flexible attitude to requested changes to the menu. Food was very good, no issues at all. Requested a quieter table which was delivered.
