About Rocca

Rocca is a new Italian Restaurant offering a modern twist on traditional Italian food in contemporary surroundings.

With a creative passion for Italian cuisine Rocca Restaurant founded by Paolo & Umberto have created this by using only the best locally sourced ingredients & freshly imported produce from Italy.

Our food is made & served by a team of people who love cooking it as well as eating it & chatting about it endlessly. Despite Rocca's recent opening, it's roots & influences stretch back much further in time. It seems the Italian experience has translated perfectly into English with Rocca.

Paolo's father came from Sora, Italy to England in the late 1950's as a qualified bread maker. Giorgio worked extremely hard to eventually set up a successful restaurant in 1983 in Colne, Lancashire "Da Giorgio's." This is where a young Paolo started out in the family business.

Umberto's father came from Borrello, Italy to England in the early 1960's as a qualified chef. Francesco had worked in hotels & restaurants throughout his career before being the head chef at "Da Tonino's" in 1978 who then later purchased with his brother Antonio back in 1982. A young Umberto started out with his career in 1980 then worked abroad in 1982 on the island of Capri later to return working at the family business.

 

Paolo & Umberto teamed up back in July 2009 to set up their first restaurant together called Gusto in Keighley which had three & half successful years. Both Paolo & Umberto thought it was time to expand their capabilities & create a distinctive Italian restaurant with a atmospheric feel where guests instantly feel at ease. There ethos still incorporated providing the best & freshest seasonal produce all delivering pure classic Italian flavours.

Both Paolo & Umberto have Italian heritage.
