Idyllic Thornton is a natural place for second-generation Italian restaurateurs Paolo and Umberto to site their evocative eatery. The sons of a baker and a restaurant owner respectively, Rocca Ristorante’s enthusiastic proprietors have Italian cuisine in their blood! This all translates to a sterling Italian dining experience at their Thornton Road restaurant in the Hill Top neighbourhood (easily reached from Allerton, Clayton and Bradford). Take advantage of midweek specials, early bird menus, or book a table and enjoy Rocca’s full-blown a la carte menu, packed with Italian classics from antipasti to delectable desserts, with all the primi and secondi piatti, contorni and European wines in between! While Rocca’s atmospheric restaurant is capacious, early reservations are advised.
The food was excellent the service was equally as good. But the noise level was horrendous we were unable to here each other speaking. We were asked if we minded if we left our table as they needed it offering us a drink which we did move but the reception area isn't nice and very cold with people coming in and out of the door we were unable to move anywhere warm. So we finished our drinks and left which was a shame. Again I will say the food and service was very goid
Good food and pleasant atmosphere if bit noisy - guess that's down to the acoustics. It took nearly 25mins before anyone came to see if we were ready to order though,
