“La Rocca” means a fortress built on a rock or on a dominant (highest convex, highly accentuated) hill in Italian.
La Rocca is the name of a square tower – a remnant of the fortress castle built around the most populated hill of the village of Brendola.
There we spent our childhood. We, the partners Stefano, Angelina and Boris, met in Brendola, where we sat around a big wooden table in Stefano’s kitchen, having fun planning our future.
The choice of this name was very natural to us: in tribute to the place where everything started. We brought with us the authentic flavors of the typical cuisine and the famous delicious pizzas. That’s why we chose the shape of the fortress as our symbol when the restaurant opened its doors for the first time in 2016.
