Table at top of stairs is horrible. Not only an extremely busy spot, but every time someone walks past the floor moves your table and chairs!
Other than that food and service were good.

Great experience. The food was great and the service was impeccable. Try their namesake pizza! The cocktails left a lot to be desired but what can you do!

Give it a shot, there's a reason they've been in the game for so long!

My first visit here was for my birthday and it was absolutely fantastic!
Can’t seem to go wrong with anything on the dessert menu. For all the seafood lovers out there — I would highly recommend the linguini frutti de mare. Will definitely visit again!

My server told me I needed to shortly leave as they wanted my table for another reservation. I had been there for 75 minutes at that point and was still finishing my wine I had with my main course. Normally the service here is very good however on this occasion it was very disappointing.

Had a most enjoyable evening at LaVecchia. The service was outstanding and the food was terrific. The veal scallopini was cooked to perfection. Although being a Friday night, it was busy with an energetic crowd, we never felt “rushed “. Will be back sooner than later.

Reserved a table for 2 for 7:30. 7:30 it still wasn't ready, and when it was we had a small table in a nook facing outside . The echos and noise levels seemed to increase in that little nook area.

Great ambiance, food and service mind you, but for a first time visit, it left a bad taste in my mouth. Pardon the pun

We had a table of 8 reduce to a table of 6 the day of the reservation, and the majority of the party was late, so I felt bad as they indicated it was a busy night. When everyone showed up the server did not make us feel rushed and ensured we had a great meal at a really reasonable pace! They have a good selection of cocktails, an extensive wine menu, and many options for a group with varying palates. Our server was a lot of fun and made our night extra special.

La Vecchia Ristorante was amazing. Everything about it was beautiful; the food was rich and hearty, it had a very ambient, thick atmosphere. It was a very heavy feeling. Loved everything about it. I will definitely go back.

I asked for salmon, hoping for a fillet but was advised I could only have salmon with pasta. The salmon was totally over cooked, very sparse (perhaps a good thing) and disappointing. My friend was very happy with her mussels, however. No decaf coffee but was offered an Americano which I thought was overpriced at $4.50.

It took 40 minutes after my reservation time to be seated. If I wanted a table for 8:40 I would have made a reservation for that time instead of 8pm. Not a single apology or reason given. Food was alright. Service was mediocre. Bread was stale and cold.

I had a business lunch at the restaurant a couple of days ago. The salmon dish which both of us had was perfectly prepared with excellent seasoning. The desserts were equally good. As well, the service was friendly and attentive. Based on this and previous experience, I would recommend La Vechia for lunch or dinner.

We had an excellent evening, inspite of being seated at THE worst table in the restaurant (at the front entrance). Our service was impeccable! Our server was gracious, helpful and didn’t miss a thing. Food, as always, was delicious. We were celebrating a birthday - the dessert platter was fantastic!
