We went for my birthday and they spoiled it !

The restaurant would not allow separate checks
At the end of a somewhat fun time they would not let my friends split the liquor and my dinner bill
They had to go out to the bank to get cash
EXTREMELY inconvenient and embarrassing

They ruined my birthday dinner

Very hospitable service and fantastic food. I chose this restaurant for its cozy, mature, and classy ambiance, plus the fact that it had multiple vegetarian options and homemade noodles! Did not disappoint. My friend and I will be back and recommend to others.

Lovely restaurant, great food and very good service. We came in for a team lunch and everyone was really happy with the experience. Only feedback was the pasta portions were quite small - but maybe I was really hungry...

The food isn't quite what it used to be. The bread seemed stale, the veal was over cooked and service was slow considering the restaurant wasn't full. The table beside us got their food before us even though they ordered way after us.

My wife and I along with another couple special friends, and just out for a Sunday afternoon lunch. We were very pleased with our lunch experience, the host was super nice and very welcoming, the waiter very friendly, open to conversation and very thorough with our service. The Food was delicious, and vibe and the ambience in the restaurant very warm, comfortable and inviting from the minute we walked in. It felt like home, we were treated like special customers, we are definitely going back soon for a similar experience for dinner.

This was one of the best meals that we have had our in Toronto. The service was outstanding. Alex our server was a true professional and was very entertaining. Food was truly outstanding. The Osso Bucco special was special.
Other nice touches were the owner stopping by and genuinely asking about our experience. Can’t wait to go back.

La Vecchio has always been our special event dining place of choice.
The food is outstanding quality and compares to none in the area!
Our only concern is the following:
- very noisy and has been getting louder as of last two visits over 3 months
- when requesting to order appetizers first it is not encouraged as easier for server / kitchen to deal with one time one complete order (not as client appeasing as we would like)
However the quality of food put us in good mood and allowed to languish at table more than we should have possibly.
GREAT FOOD!

I did not like my meal. I ordered the rigatoni with chicken. I was expecting white grilled chicken in the pasta, but it was dark chicken. I’ve never seen this in pasta before and it was really unappealing.

I’ve been to La Vecchia a few times and it has been incredible every time. The staff is very nice, the food is delicious and the food comes out quickly! It can some times be a bit loud, but other than that I love everything about this place. I always order the seafood linguini and they give you a very generous amount of seafood. Make a reservation if you can because there can be lines, but they also have a nice bar you can wait at. Will definitely be back plenty of times in the future!
