La Vecchia Ristorante Ratings and Reviews
We have eaten at this establishment many times and We are never disappointed by the service, food and atmosphere. The people who work at La Vecchia take pride in what they do. The food is mouth watering and the atmaosphere is very casual/romantic. Such a beautiful place.
Excellent cucumber, tomato, and feta salad. Absolutely delish!
Veal for main was also very tasty. Large portions, but could have been hotter.
Service, .... the best!!
Only major complaint was the noise level, very loud on a Sat night.
Might consider putting some noise reduction baffles on the ceilings.
Decor a little tired
Great neighbourhood gem.
Would highly recommend.
Great Food & excellent service from Alex. There is a really nice ambience in this restaurant and you can actually have a conversation without yelling. We'll be back
Our dinner at La Vecchia was fantastic! The service from Alexandra was outstanding and the food was delicious, as always. This has become our favourite neighbourhood restaurant.
The service was great, the food for me was OK nothing especial.
Want a good Italian meal - lunch or dinner. You cannot go wrong. Food, GREAT; Service GREAT. However be prepared for busy, tables a little close together, and noisy depending on the crowd and time of day. But for food and service just GO GO GO. And Enjoy.
The food and service all and all was incredible! Alessandra was our server. She was friendly, well knowledged, and attentive. I highly recommend La Vecchia to anyone looking for authentic Italian cuisine. A Y&E gem!! I look forward to visiting again soon!
This restaurant has been consistently good. My husband and I have been going for 17 years! They renovated lower level looks great, and would be great for a private event/ celebration. The service is friendly and efficient. It's a neighbourhood gem.
Attentive service, pleasant atmosphere , food very tasty and nicely presented.
Great service even thou it was very busy
This place has been around for a very long time and continues to be very busy, likely due to the great service and very flavourful food. It is a competitive business to be in and they are doing it right.
We go to this restaurant regularly for special occasions. It is the only place where I actually savour the dishes. However, on this evening, the service was unusually mediocre. I am accustomed to having wait staff that truly enjoy food. This time, though, the waitress seemed rushed and non-committal. Such a shame, as it was a birthday celebration.
Always consistently amazing food, service and ambiance. Gotta love this place!
Another found gem by following Open table reviews and rating.
You think you are in a New York city restaurant,
With the buzz, great smart service, enentertaining and knowledge staff.
And great food with a unique private wine list.
We will be back
The food was incredible and the service was spot on.
The staff were wonderful. I ate the shrimp with pasta which was very good. My husband ordered ravioli and he enjoyed it. Menu items were higher than other restaurants in the city
Fabulous service! Food was excellent! Welcome the opportunity to return as we enjoyed the atmosphere, tasty food and quality!
Good food...lots of variety on the menu. Lovely service. It's a winner
Excellent food .Excellent service
Great restaurant - my favourite - great food, service, ambiance, wine- love it
Another excellent experience.
I haven't been to a truer Italian restaurant like this in a while. Service missed our entree timing but the incredible taste of our pizza more than made up for it. We loved the atmosphere and the general Italian vibe of the place. It was not new-age or kitschy but just real Italian people making real Italian food.
Best Italian food in midtown.
We had a lovely meal and we can highly recommend the meat ravioli. The service was good and we enjoyed a nice Italian meal, from the calamari to the tartuffo.
We always enjoy our time at this restaurant. The food is so good and the customer service is excellent!
Always delicious food! Always great service and the specials are always a hit
And service. We had a lovely dinner and great dining experience
Great place, great food, but too busy, too loud at Saturday night dinner.
This is a reliable place for us in the neighbourhood
The pasta of the day was excellent. The mussels were just average and the bread was also a bit stale. Overall it is overpriced. Nice atmosphere.
It is a great place to celebrate Father's Day, which it was when we were there. Having spent time visiting Italy, we have high standards around Italian cuisine. We were very pleased with the meal. Our server was wonderful too.
Wonderful meal, terrific service from Alessandra. We dropped in for lunch on Father's Day. The pizza was excellent, the fish salad was delicious, and the Branzino was amazing. The lemon blueberry cheesecake was awesome!
We will definitely return for a nice dinner soon.
We had a great experience! The food, drinks, and desert were all amazing
Had a great time! We were celebrating our daughters' graduation from Uof T.
The food was enjoyable and very delicious. We had arrived very late for our reservation because of traffic getting across the city-- thankfully our table was held for us. We are so grateful that the management was very understanding. It was our first time there and we were very impressed with the presentation of the food and how great it tasted. Thanks again for the wonderful evening.
Food was great. Delicious. One of the waiters was quite insensitive and called my daughter an " alcoholic" because she did not wish to order wine with us. She is in fact, a recovering alcoholic for the past 7 yrs! She was startled by his name calling...as was I.
Enjoyed dining at La Vecchia. Excellent food and service. Will definitely go back.
Don't think the shrimp was fresh - and for an Italian restaurant- would have expected real bread
My first visit was told it's been there for years I see why.
Megan was great. Thanks for the great dining experience.
I actually have never written a review before on open table but I felt like my experience at La Vecchia warranted it.
I made a reservation for 10 people on a Wednesday for my friend's birthday. The restaurant called in advance and I confirmed it would be 9 people.
When we arrived we sat at our table, which was very close to the bar, so much so the waitress could barely get by to give us more water. While the food was quite good -- albeit slightly overpriced. I recommend the ravioli but not the house antipasto.
The service, however, was horrible. A couple of glaring issues:
- when I arrived I put a half drank water bottle on the table and went to the bathroom while leaving my friends to chat. When I got back it was gone. Apparently the waitress had picked it up and disappeared with it without asking anyone and then returned with it in a glass to tell my friends "that isn't allowed here".
- we didn't order our dinner until 45 minutes in and had to flag down the waitress a number of times. She didn't fill up the water glasses for half of the table (maybe cause of how squished it was) and regularly ignored us
- she wasn't friendly and was quite rude at times, to be honest. Service was slow and slightly ruined the relaxation of the dinner
I got the tiramisu for my friend and it came with a sparkler, which helped slightly, but still wanted to warn before taking a big group out.
Great (again)! The dinner specials were marvelous - flavourful with beautiful presentation.
