Consistent good food and service
Loved being at La Vecchia as usual. Been there several times and always invite new people to join us. Host super friendly at the door, sat us immediately at a great table in front! Service people amazingly nice and helpful. Always a great vibe in there and super busy. Food is always fantastic. We love this place!!~ what else can I say?
The food was very good. However, the service was not so great. Had to wait quite a long time between courses, and the waiter was nowhere to be found. Also had to wait a long time for the check.
Always a lovely experience. Food is amazing
Good food ! Beware the noise level however!
We have dined at La Vecchia for over a few years and have found it very charming with great food and ambiance; however, last Saturday while we were there, the noise level actually hurt my ears. It was impossible to carry on a meaningful conversation due to the number of guests and the acoustics.
Great food and experience.
Awful. The restaurant was not busy but the waiter only came by to take the order and to get the payment. No service whatsoever. Sad
without a doubt...this restaurant is in a class of its own....we enjoy dining here as often as time permits.....outstanding Italian dishes, appropriate prices and most important, service without parallel.
Spectacular as always, in every possible way!
Best genuine Italian food in town !!! House chianti is great !
Family getting together from out of town. We all loved our dinner. Second time at this restaurant. We have already made another reservation.
Made a reservation. Got seated right away. Asked for a quiet table. Got a really nice, quiet window table away from center of noise. Very professional yet very friendly servers. Food was delicious. Brought my friend, who's birthday it was, a lovely plated dessert.
Love, love, love this place - I've been coming here since moving to Santa Monica - that was in 1987! Still the absolute best Italian - and happy hour there is, bar none. But, don't read this because I still want to be able to get a seat!
Good food. Good service. But the tables are too close together
Great food, nice menu loved the food! Great wine list
Excellent service and great food! Wide selection of pastas and even secondis. Loved their glass of pinot noir ‘The Calling.’ Highly recommend it anyone looking for a lovely date night.
This is our neighborhood favorite local restaurant. Service is outstanding food is incredible. Suggestion, make reservations if you want to make sure you get a table, it’s always busy because it’s that good!!!
We like this restaurant. It is within walking distance of our home. We have been here for happy hour several times. Guess were coming from 45 minutes away and this was an easy walk from our home. All four people enjoyed their dinner very much. The lobster pasta was chosen by two and enjoyed by four.The other two meals were the whitefish and veal piccata – both excellent. Since there was no agreement on wines is it to have what to have, we had two glasses one white and one red.
Fabulous place with outstanding food. I would highly recommend it. My second time in and I will be back.
man - after visiting LA from Colorado - i'm about broke eating from various restaurants ... this place had great food at fair prices ... we just don't have $20 hamburgers in CO and $20 couple of eggs ...
The food here is good and authentic. The staff is personable and help make for a very good dining experience.
Possibly the best "NYey" Italian in both food & ambiance in LA, recommended by a friend and my whole family LOVE LOVE LOVE it! Food is amazing!
Have been wanting to try out this restaurant after hearing the food was amazing and it did not disappoint. We had a lovely dinner!!! Gustavo, our waiter, was fabulous ... very attentive and knowledgeable about both the food and wine menus. And the food was delicious!!! I had the Farfalle La Vecchia and I practically licked the plate. My niece is gluten-intolerant and our waiter went out of his way to ensure her food had no gluten. Will be back!
Love this restaurant! Great food and wonderful service!
Really lovely restaurant.
Food was delicious. Staff welcoming and attentive and considering it was a crazy packed Saturday night, service was excellent. Can’t wait to go back.
Comfort Italian excellent calamari
Good size portions
Family get together!! Love La Vecchia so much!! Always a perfect place to bring out of towners. Food is always so good. I’d eat here everyday if I could!
We chose this restaurant for a meeting of friends who had not seen each other for a number of years. It was recommended to us by local residents. Unfortunately, it was extremely noisy so the evening was not up to expectation since conversation was our primary interest. The food was OK but not outstanding; however, the service was very good to excellent.
Best Italian restaurant in all of Los Angeles. The tri-colore salad is excellent as is the burrata with tomatoes and basil. All of their appetizers are delicious. The rigatoni bolognese is beyond outstanding. My friend loved the linguini alla puttenesca. The bottom line is, you can not go wrong with anything you order at La Vecchia. It's hard to stop eating, but definitely save room for their fabulous desserts.
What a wonderful Valentine dinner. My husband and I have been to La Vecchia before, but this time was extra special. From the greeting by the host when we arrived, to the farewell when we left, everything was perfect! The food and service were both amazing! The Caesar salad had great flavor. Both our entrees were tasty and were just the right portions (unlike some local restaurants where you leave hungry). The desserts were incredible. And, to top it all off, we couldn't have asked for better service. The restaurant is extremely well run with the manager being very hands on and watching everything like a hawk to ensure that all the guests' experiences were wonderful. We will definitely return soon!
Always the best.
We have been eating at la vecchia since it opened, we are never disappointed. Service is excellent, food is consistently good.
A delight, every bite was tasty, the right temperature and inviting ..
We had fun and the food was delicious,?keep it up guys :))))
As soon as the waiter had more than 2 tables, he ignored us and we had to ask for everything. He knew it was a birthday and with the check he brought us a small dish of whipped cream with a candle! Really, just plain whipped cream ??!?No dessert would have been better!
Most of the food was good except for the chopped salad as the dressing was quite salty.
We had excellent service (very attentive) and the meal was delicious from the bread service to dessert! Can't wait to go back!
The ambiance was wonderful. Service was great and food was outstanding.
My only complaint is that it was a bit noisy. We were lucky enough to sit in an out of the way corner so it wasn’t as loud, but the middle of the room would have been noisy and crowded. Good value and excellent food.
Great food - great service - great atmosphere. Never disappointed.
