Slice of LIfe

he little storefront is a simple but lively place. La Rocca’s is about as stylish as a bowling shirt and just as much fun. The food is Italian you grew up with, honest pasta and blissful pizza. La Rocca family favorites include Mama’s beef bruciole and chicken parmigiana. The homebuilt pies come four ways—thin, thick, pan style or stuffed—with several specialty toppings and sauce choices. The glorious crust—golden and chewy—has an aura no franchise can touch. Whether you are with amici or la famiglia, dine in or order out, you’re sure to savor la vita La Rocca.
