La Vecchia Cucina
Always amazing and consistent!
Love this restaurant!!! The food is always great and the service is attentive. It feels like a cozy neighborhood restaurant. We come back every three months when we are in town.
The food was INCREDIBLE! The service was great - waitress was so helpful in making a decision on what to order and really touted how amazing the chef was. the food was delicious and affordable, which is so hard to find!
This was my second visit to this restaurant. I must say that it did not disappoint
either time. The atmosphere is pleasant and the food was excellent both times.
After our favorite Italian restaurant closed in our neighborhood, we had to find
another to replace it. This is the place we decided on. We will now go there
whenever we want Italian food.
It is a warm and cozy place and the service is great.
I would recommend it for anyone who enjoys good Italian food.
Superb. Truly. The food was incredible, hearty and very italian in a classy place, AND completely warm and friendly. Buzz and atmos, but in a inviting way. Great experience and one of my best outside Italy itself. The pasta. OOOH the pasta!
I’ve been here at least half a dozen times. Everything is perfect. My favorite spot
I’ve been going to La Vecchia for 10 years. It’s my wife and I’s favorite special occasion restaurant. Strong recommendation across the board.
We had an early reservation (5:30) and were promptly seated. The service was very good and the food excellent and well priced. All in all a great experience.
Food, service entire restaurant experience is always great!!
Dinner with friends. The waitress was disconnected at Best. Took forever to get drinks. Also to have our order taken. The waitress the whole time was not very friendly and inattentive.
Always great food
love the restaurant but much too noisy. Hard to have a conversation.
Amazing food as always. Great wine selection and manager was helpful in picking the right one for our meal. Noise levels were pretty high though as more people rolled in so if you are sensitive to the noise this is probably not your restaurant.
Solid old school (not trendy) place. Just good ol’ Italian comfort food. Perfect for when doing battle with a menu is too tiring.
A neighborhood gem. Never disappointingly. Also great for Happy Hour.
Always Great , one of our favorite places in Santa Monica
It was better than expected. Wonderful service and delicious food!
Love the food.
We love La Vecchia! We've been here a few times since we moved to LA from NYC and are grateful to have found Italian food as awesome as you'd find on the East Coast. Delicious dishes, great for sharing, reasonable prices, lively atmosphere. Our favorite restaurant in LA!
Always consistently great-Been coming here now for over 30 years!
The service was excellent in every way. We had an early reservation so the restaurant was only about 1/3 full, at most. Once full to capacity though, we could barely hear each other (2 top) for any conversation at all.
The food was excellent as well and I loved the extensive menu!!
I do recommend this restaurant, but I also recommend not going at prime time!!!
Great birthday dinner
Delicious food in a relaxed atmosphere and great service.
La Vecchia is my all time favorite Italian restaurant in Los Angeles. I go there quite often. However, I learnt something that I hadn't experienced before, because I usually go with one person. As excellent as this restaurant is, it is way way way too noisy if your more than four people. It's almost impossible to have a conversation. I would never dine there again with more than four people, and even that is a 50/50. Aside from that, the food, everything on their menu is outstanding. No one in your party will have a bad meal whatever they order.
Our early Valentines dinner did not disappoint! Attended to by the delightful Oliver, we started with the best fried calamari in town. The mushroom ravioli special was delicious, as well as the branzino which is a favorite of ours, accompanied by perfectly prepared creamy mashed potatoes, baby carrots and sautéed spinach. We look forward to another visit soon, thank you!
Always good. Love this restaurant. Wonderful menu -everything is great.
I celebrated my birthday for 4th times here! We all enjoyed our dinner and our celebration. Thanks 😎
Wonderful in every way!
Visiting my family in Santa Monica, we always come for dinner to La Vecchia. Always enjoy!!
Everything was Delicious!
Food is delicious but it is very noisy. Anything that can be done about the noise leve?
As always, just fabulous.
Outstanding as always! Best italian on Main st/ Santa Monica for sure:)
Excellent service and delicious food
Perfect evening. Excellent service, great ambience and delicious food! Love this place!
Great service from the staff. Very nice and attentive as we enjoyed dinner. The food was also great. We received a complementary birthday desert to go with our meal. We felt pampered as the staff refilled our wine glasses and promptly brought us our food and drinks. They checked in on us without seeking to intrusive. Definitely will go back soon.
From the hot bread, great pasta to the helpful and attentive waiters, it was a wonderful meal. Meal was served steaming hot, never had to ask for anything including beverages.
A great neighborhood gem with delicious food and splendid service.
Birthday dinner. There was a mix up with the appetizer so we didn’t get it. The waiter was very apologetic. The food was delicious!
