THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Rocca Restaurant Review

: Chef-owner Donald Dickman (formerly of Trumps, Twin Palms, Grill on the Alley) brings us a refreshing departure from the predictable trattoria fare. His daily-changing menu is filled with rustic but fascinating appetizers such as an addictive black truffle-coated crostini with a pecorino fonduta, chicken liver crostini with pickled onions, and stewed tripe. Pastas include a killer carbonara and millionaire's pasta (tagliatelle with Maine lobster and black truffles). Among interesting main courses are grilled wild boar sausages with green apple mostarda, and desserts include a light ricotta torta and a nice Italian cheese plate. The two-level restaurant is dominated by a stunning antique chandelier at the door and a rustic table in the center topped with freshly baked breads and colorful produce. Candlelit tables are dressed in white linen and mustard-colored walls are lined with black-and-white photos. NOTE: ROCCA IS SLATED TO SERVE ITS LAST DINNER ON NOVEMBER 30, 2005, AFTER WHICH THE RESTAURANT WILL CLOSE.
