Service was less than indifferent...it was atrocious. The only redeeming part of the entire evening was the food, which was decent.

Service was so bad will not go there again.

Everything was great until we were suddenly given our check to leave. I understand the restaurant was busy but the style it was done was so rude. If they kindly said to us if we could leave due to so many people it would of been fine. I went to the bar to purchase my takeout as promised to a friend. I have come to this restaurant many times but was never treated so rudely until this visit. I was disappointed.

Always a neighbourhood favourite of ours....although a later reservation, our server (who we’ve had before and always happy with) was spread too thin. Even after several large tables left, he still didn’t have time for our table. Hoping next time is better. As always the food was delicious. Beautiful night to enjoy a window table!!

I've been to La Vecchia twice in the last 2 weeks and have LOVED it both times. It has great food and an amazing vibe and is always packed. On Saturday, we had the best seat in the house on the patio. The weather was fantastic. It was my husband's birthday, and Alex, our server, did a great job celebrating with us. We look forward to coming back soon!

Celebrated a friends birthday, and despite having to change the number of the party last minute, everyone was very accommodating. Service was excellent, and food was fantastic. It is a fairly busy place, and got crowded quickly into the night at which point service did slow down slightly. Overall, reasonably priced and I would definitely recommend this place.

Italian restaurant and no Italian beer! Odd. The food was delicious but after all the renovations it is still a very dark restaurant! You cannot see what you are eating! Manager was kind and brought a grappa on the house to celebrate my friends birthday!

First time brunching at la vecchia (enjoyed many dinners there in the past). Eggs Benedict were amazing. Mimosas and Bloody Marys delicious as well. Will definitely be back for brunches in the future.

The waiter let us know that it was frowned upon to order the appetizers before our meal and advised that we put our whole order in at the same time. The complimentary bread for the table did not arrive until after we received our appetizers and we were a bit hungry during the wait time. It was so dark in the restaurant that I could not see the menu and had to use my phone light to read it. Also, the seating was so tight and cramped that the person behind me kept pushing on my chair. I found it a bit frustrating that I was so uncomfortably close to the table. The food was good but the portions were a bit small for the price we paid.

This restaurant is a neighbourhood favourite. Great pasta and yummy salad and pizzas. Also a good choice of fish. Recently had an interior remodel so looks great. Very attentive and friendly service.

I love La Vecchia and often suggest this restaurant to friends and family. Our waiter seemed to not care about our table and like he was too busy for us. My brother had to ask for his drink (ice tea) twice and was still charged for his drink.

Probably the worst service I’ve ever had here and my family will not go back. This saddens me as it is one of my favorite Italian restaurants in the city and this experience was not great.

Food was excellent as usual. The noise level was awful. We couldn’t hear each other and everyone around us seemed to be raising their voices to be heard by their table mates. It detracted significantly from the overall ambience and overall enjoyment of the evening. I’ve been to noisy restaurants before but this was truly unbearable and excessive. I’ve been to this restaurant many times and while a little noisy it was never this bad. The only difference was where we were seated. At the front, on a busy night, you can’t hear your friends or the waiter letting you know the specials.

We were seated in the cantina(basement). Cool setting...though a bit loud and echoey.
Alessandra is a fantastic server, smart, professional and personable. We had a great evening, great food and friendly staff.

I love this restaurant. I very rarely eat out, and don't eat at any other Italian restaurants, as I have homemade Italian cooking at home, but the food here is AMAZING. The staff, ambiance, decor, and wine are also excellent, but it's the food that brings me back every time.
