We had a very nice dinner. Delicious food and good service.
It was my birthday and it was nice of them to offer me a tiramisu to celebrate.

Found a hair in my food which was very visible to the human eye and should not have been served. The food was instantly replaced although especially during Covid times this was not a good experience to have encountered.

First time there and enjoyed it very much. Food was excellent as well as the service. Our mains took a little longer to get to our table but both our server and mgmt let us know of the delay and were very apologetic. Will definitely be back.

Overall experience was terrible. Service was awful, waiter insisted we order our food all at once so it would not cause issues with kitchen and Uber orders. Waited an hour for our food…when we finally received it was the wrong order because ours mistakenly was added to Uber order. Either way food was ok, but doesn’t make up for bad management of the establishment.

My companion and I agreed that La Vechia is the more upscale of the dining choices on Marine Parade Dr. , from the decor to the menu offerings. We liked the look of the white tents on the patio, and the fact that heat lamps were plentiful. Our server was a very pleasant young lady who was open to any of our requests to make our evening enjoyable. If you don't mind having to talk a bit louder with your table mates, highly recommend getting drinks and or a meal here.

The food was delicious and came promptly, but unfortunately, the service felt oddly frazzled from the get-go. We wanted to give the team patience and the benefit of the doubt, but there were unfortunately a series of moments that culminated in an overall tense experience. Our table still had stains from the previous diners and no cutlery or dishes were prepared for us. Our server unfortunately also hastily took our menus away before we could finish articulating our orders, and ultimately, one of our orders never arrived.

Fantastic location. Service was very good, but food choices were limited for us (both veal dishes were similar) my pasta could have been great, had lots of shrimp but was not tasty, lots of garlic but bland flavours.

Hi there,
we were excited to come based on a referral. Plus it was our anniversary. First, when I stood at the front, I gave my name and no one addressed us. They just looked at us and spoke among themselves. We waited 10 mins, then I had to address them again. They should have spoke to us, “ it will be 10 min., please wait on the side, we will be with you in a minute.”

Then at our table our waiter addresses us right away, got us water, but after that each time we wanted his attention we would have to get up or ask the other servers. We were there for about 40 min before we got our drinks or could put in the orders. He would not even look over at us.
Then my son got the wrong drink, no big deal, we asked a busser for the correct pop, and a side plate. 10 min. Later, it never came.
Meal was good.. food and atmosphere was good, but service was not.

At the end, I tipped 14%, when he gave me the bill, he walked away, didn’t say thank you… perhaps disappointed with the tip. But I definitely felt that was plenty or perhaps even too much for the quality of service.

It’s an expensive, beautiful restaurant, but overall, we felt ignored and not welcomed.

We asked for a modification to one of the dishes and when the dish came it wasn't done. When we told our waitress, she shrugged it off and didn't address it. Then the manager came by at the end of the meal to ask how everything was and we told him and he said sorry and that was it. Not impressed by their lack of concern regarding their mistakes.

The food is always outstanding! I did have issue with the service as it was quite slow, almost to the point there seemed to be insufficient number of servers!

Also, the inside was quite hot because the breeze from outside wasn’t coming in so it made for an uncomfortable experience. After asking the server to turn on the fan things improved.

Overall I love La Vecchia but the experience was a bit below the usual standard I expect.

We came upon this gem of a restaurant by accident. We were on the Lakeshore for an evening event and needed to find a decent meal in little time and came upon La Vecchia. The staff was extremely welcoming and attentive. We were able to get a reservation just hours before our meal. Our seating was beautifully situated in front of the open kitchen where staff worked passionately and tirelessly preparing amazing dishes. The variety and selections were endless. They had something to offer for every palate. The presentation and quality of the food was exceptional. The homemade pasta was as good as my Italian mother’s. The wines were reasonably priced. The manager Massimo graciously offered us a drink at the end of our meal. We highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who appreciates a creatively crafted, freshly made, Mediterranean meal with exceptional service. We will definitely be back!
