I have been dining at La Vecchia at least 4 times a year for the last 17 years!
Hands down one of my most favourite restaurants in Toronto as they have never disappointed me.
The management and staff have always been professional and extremely gracious.
The food is delicious and the prices are beyond reasonable.
Love love love this place!!!

Love this restaurant! Service was excellent, salad and main course was good but not quite as good as usual. Not sure why. Dessert was delightful... the Gelato Le Vecchia. When we were done the Maître ‘d offered us a strawberry infused Grappa to sip! So nice!

I had such a great late lunch here - our server took us on a progressive wine experience ; he was so knowledgeable, fun and charming - what a treat!

We fought over who was taking home the leftover’s, needless to say the food was amazing. This is one my new favourite places. Great place for a romantic date, business lunch or if you just enjoy food and wine!

As always the food was absolutely amazing. The only complaint we had was the service which in the past has always been outstanding. The waitress we had was not to La Vecchia's normal standards.

Had a very good dinner with friendly, efficient service. The restaurant was humming with customers and animated conversations all around. The one agreed upon comment by all of us would be to use less oil in their dishes. The agnolotti had too much oil especially.

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.
