La Roccia Gets Every Pizza My Heart
It is no surprise that I am obsessed with pizza. Honestly, if I could get that to die for summer bod while eating pizza every day I would. Unfortunately, that is not life but on the brighter side, we all should indulge in our sweet and savory tooths now and again. With that being said I am so excited to write about my fantastic experience eating at La Roccia Pizza, such a gem located in the beautiful Lincoln Park. Not only was there a cute and cozy ambiance, but the food was also spectacular. I kept getting these amazing Lady in the Tramp vibes, you know, the one where they're eating spaghetti together and accidentally smooch, such great vibes from this place.
When you enter it's pretty cool because it's kind of like a hidden little spot and if you're not paying close attention you may miss it. Once you go down a couple of steps into what looks like an alley or basement, you can find this hidden masterpiece called La Roccia Pizza. It gives such a cool speakeasy vibe which I totally loved. Lit by candlelight with the fresh smell of wine, pasta, and mozzarella cheese, could you think of a better combination?
My friends and I had such a blast trying some of the delicious items on the menu. Our fantastic waiter picked out a red wine for us that was extremely smooth with a hint of fruity. I love salads and their salad was fresh, flavorful, and delicious at just the right size.
Remember when I brought up the spaghetti scene from Lady and the tramp? Yep, you know we had to get spaghetti because of that and of course, try and recreate that monumental image. Although we sort of failed the spaghetti was phenomenal.
Of course, we had to try their delicious pizza and did I mention it had a nice slab of mozzarella cheese right dab in the middle? I mean can you say heaven? Speaking of cheese, as an appetizer we had the fresh mozzarella burrata which was served with fresh basil, toasted crostini, and a balsamic reduction forming this perfect little morsel of a dish.
As if we didn't stuff ourselves enough, it was a gorging night, of course, we decided to have some dessert. My personal favorite is the salted caramel ice cream which had that beautiful mix of sweet and salty. We ended the fantastic dinner with some limoncello shots and let me tell you those bad boys are dangerous! Not only are they delicious and sweet but they go down so easily which is bad because you could have one, or two, or let's face it three.
All in all, if you are looking for a great experience filled with delicious food, great ambiance, and high-end staff you should definitely check out this Lincoln Park gem you will not regret it.
I want to take the time to personally thank all the staff at La Roccia, and Chef Mora, for making our time there so special we will definitely be back in the future! 10 stars for sure and let's face it who can say no to good pizza?
Thanks guys for reading until next time!
