Rocca in Boston's South End Has Closed

It looks like a popular restaurant in the SoWa section of Boston's South End may have shut its doors.

According to several sources, including food writer MC Slim JB, who posted the news on Chowhound, as well as a few people on the Twitter site, Rocca on Harrison Avenue has closed, with the upscale eatery apparently shutting its doors as of either yesterday or today. A check on OpenTable indicates that reservations for Rocca are not being taken anymore, and calls placed to the restaurant have not been picked up by anyone. In addition, a note on Rocca's Twitter page mentions that the reservations manager's last day was on December 28.

Rocca, which first opened in the spring of 2007, featured mostly inventive Italian dishes, with such menu items as yellowfin tuna tartare, ricotta cavatelli, gnocchetti, smoked and braised pork, spiced lamb loin, and goat's cheese pound cake.

The address for this now-closed restaurant was: Rocca, 500 Harrison Avenue, Boston, MA 02118.
