Better than average Italian
Better than average Italian food, good specials, always good service and pleasant atmosphere...only observation is that they are a little heavy handed on the butter in their cooking.

I orded the risotto special with a veal chop--the risotto was really good, maybe wonderful but the veal chop was inedible. They comped the entreee, i am not sure that was enough but it sufficed. The server was very good, attentive and personable.. I liv e about a half mile from the restaurant and would go there more often but his is the second time I have had problems there. The view from there is great they had a musical duo in there tonight that was great...try it, I hope you like it.

The pumpkin ravioli was excellent, just like other reviews stated. The pear and spinach salad was very good. Wish I had known the shell was parmesan before I finished the rest of the salad, then it would have been excellent. I still La Vecchia, but I am very glad it is here!

I was extremely pleased going here for my special occasion. They did their absolute best to make my night memorable. I had planned to propose here and it went better than expected. They're service was perfect. Everybody was polite and had amazing attitudes. I would love to thank everyone who works there for making my night, a night to remember. My fiancée loved it. Thank you.

Great new spot
I hadn't been here since they moved and what a pleasant surprise!! Fantastic view of downtown Reno as the sun set. The food and service were excellent. I wouldn't recommend the Parmesan martini...that was a little much for me, even being the cheese lover that I am. Can't wait to go back with my husband.

Excellent flavored Italian
I had not been here since their change in location, and I am happy to report that the quality has remained very high. A little bit out of the way, but worth it.

Great food! Great service! Great atmosphere! One of my favorite dishes on the menu-mushroom raviolis. The service is excellent! I highly recommend this restaurant for a romantic dinner, girls night out, or holiday party!
7/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
The menu was fresh featuring local produce. Food was excellent.

Delicioso e molto bene!
I love dining at La Vecchia and return often. The flavors in their food are exquisite and rival those of my Swiss-Italian aunt who was the best cook in our family! The staff is very friendly but not over solicitious. La Vecchia is my restaurant of choice every year on my birthday.

Great food, service, view. A bit pricey, but worth it.
7/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food was great,service mediocre. Everytime we have this female server we get mediocre service at best.

It has great Italian food
It has great Italian food and I especially like the spinach salad in the parmesan bowl. Been there before and will probably will go back again. They had great Oso Buco in the winter. I must go back in the winter to see if they still have it.

The view has it's Star Wars-esqueness about it (there is a roof full of antenna's in the distance) but the ambiance and shelter from wind and sun was perfect!
The waiter was outstanding... leading us through a food adventure that even kept the kids happy and the adult drinks coming!

We had a wonderful meal and the service was very good. Will definitely go back.

Had a group in town at the convention center - and we decided we had had enough of thee hotel & casino food. Read a good review on UrbanSpoon, so decided to book it on Opentable. The 5 of us showed up for a great dinner, served by an exceoptionally nice and attentive Matt. Poached swordfish was excellent. We thought we wanted the patio with the view, but. Sat inside. Comfortaby instead (good thing as the wind picked up). Great italian menu with a fun cocktail list. Definitely recomment.

Won me back
I have dined here a number of times, my last experience was less than stellar but this time was quite wonderful. The food was very good, the cocktails were done well and delivered rapidly. Our waiter was excellent.--overall a very good experience.
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great place and good food but live music was too loud. It was very had to have a conversation with people in my party. However, I would eat here again next time I visit Reno.
8/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
My husband and I celebrated our wedding anniversary at your restaurant. The food was wonderful. It was obvious that this is a local's favorite. The only thing I would recommend is having table cloths on the tables to cut down on the noise and to add to the elegance of the meals. We will be back.

I'm someone who never writes review
But this place is so awesome we needed to provide the feedback. We stopped in after reading reviews and thoroughly enjoyed the service and the food. The prices were great as well. Unfortunately, the skies were filled with horrible forest fire smoke so we couldn't enjoy the food, but it was totally enjoyable and we will be back.
8/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
The view would have been wonderful if it weren't for the smoke! I liked the dining room very much. Our waiter was very attentive without hovering. The Caesar salad was only passable - not a lot of flavor, but the waiter did bring us anchovies. The salmon with roasted leeks and polenta was excellent. My husband had seafood linguini - a nice amount of seafood on top of a huge amount of pasta. Moderate prices.

We had a great dining experience
We had a great dining experience for our birthdays. Food was excellent and loved that they shop local farmers and all the food is prepared from scratch and organic when available. The waiters knew what the dishes were and desscribed them perfectly. Had the best ever bread puddng and gelato! We wil definitely go back.

Fun Dinning Experience
The meals and presentations were exceptional while the staff were generally attentive to our family needs.
We will return and look forward to another great evening out at the restaurant.
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food is very good and the service was professional. Given the prices, it is a go to local restaurant

My husband and I had dinner
My husband and I had dinner at La Vecchia on Sunday night 9/8/13 after the Reno Phil concert. (La Vecchia is a corporate sponsor.) We have come to expect well-prepared dishes, and were not disappointed. I had the artichoke ravioli special, which was delicious. My husband returned to his favorite: veal scallopini, also delicious. What keeps us coming back to La Vecchia is more than just the food: it's the welcoming atmosphere, the great jazz combo, and beautiful intimate setting. La Vecchia is a great community asset. (The substantial cocktail menu and wine list are also a plus. ) We'll be back.
9/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent food and service
Great views of the city. We went for lunch and will have to try dinner there soon to see the city lights. Pumpkin Ravioli was the best and the Veal Piccata yummy. And gentlemen - you will get enough food. We will definitely return.
9/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Ravioli to die for!!
I've had the mushroom ravioli on a few occasions and it is always better each time! The pumpkin ravioli was AMAZING! Excellent food, fast friendly service, beautiful setting overlooking downtown Reno... What more could you ask for! Some seating was almost family style. But we had very friendly folks next to us and it didn't take away from our evening.

Best Location Yet
La Vecchia (The Old One, f.) has indeed been around Reno for a long time. They have always represented the best of Italian cooking, with fresh ingredients and dishes a little different from your average spaghetti or veal parmesan. This was our first visit to the "new" (about 16 months) location, and it was wonderful. Matt, our server, was very attentive, and was also accommodating to our desire to have a leisurely dinner. There were 4 in our party, and we all independently chose the chef's daily ravioli variant, stuffed with Manchego and artichokes in a fresh tomato, garlic, and basil sauce. It was divine! We chose a bottle of Banfi wine from the Tuscany region of Italy, a Cabernet Sauvignon and Sangiovese blend, and it was delicious. Go!

Dinner for Two
We had the pumpkin ravioli and the halibut. VERY VERY good food. For dessert we had tiramisu. The food, the atmosphere, and the service was truly amazing!! We will definitely return.
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Have eaten there many times over the years and it is continues to be my favorite. Service, food, and view are great.
9/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Italian with wonderful view!
I try to go to La Vecchia whenever I am in Reno. The view from Skyline, of the city and valley below is beautiful especially at sunset. I have had their filet with peppercorn sauce and their ravioli, both were cooked perfectly and filled with flavor. Their warm romaine salad is another must order on the menu and don't forget to leave room for dessert - flan, gelato, bread pudding and more. The service is excellent and the waiters go out of their way to make sure your dining experience a memorable one.

The roasted pork ravioli with chantrelles were the "Chef's Special" that night & were rich with succulent pork complimented perfectly by the flavorful chantrelles. I look forward to ordering this dish again. Others in our group had the risotto with smoked pork shank...excellent!
Service is prompt, friendly & well orchestrated without being intrusive.
The atmosphere is both lively & comfortable. Chef owner Alberto Gazzola greeted guests while they dined. It seemed a popular place for diverse age groups.

From unique to common, La Vecchia has something for everyone.
10/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Italian at its best!
Beats out all other Italian restaurants in Reno! The food and service was excellent.
10/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great After-Concert Dining
Five of us went to La Vecchia after the Reno Philharmonic concert on a Sunday evening. The food was really delicious, and the cocktails were great! The staff members were gracious and showed just the right amount of attentiveness. We were really impressed. Furthermore, the view is amazing - all of Reno was lit up below us. We highly recommend this place for food, drink, and ambiance.

love to dine here, but....
Although I've had many great dining experiences here, especially the outdoor deck during the summer, last week there was a large table in the dining room of cocktailers who were quite loud. It made it difficult to hear each other at a table for four! When spending that much on dinner, the noise level made the excellent food less enjoyable.

Nice Italian Restaurant
I thought the overall experience was very nice, I'm sure it would've been a better experience if not for the Christmas party that was being held, it took away the romantic atmosphere that could have been there without the crowds and noise from the party.
