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
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.
Food was excellent. Service was attentive. Our only criticism is that it was difficult to hold a conversation because of the ambient noise In the restaurant. It just seems like the room acoustics bounce every sound in the room.
This place is a real find, from the terrific bread and olive oil at the table to every dish we've had here. Red sangria is delicious. The veal marsala and chicken with zucchini and sun dried tomatoes are 2 of my favorites. Great wait staff too!
Very good food, tasty, proper temperature and authentic. The service is a little rushed. The room was very noisy.
The FRIENDLIEST STAFF! Wonderful food and atmosphere is not pretentious like at other local Italian restaurants!
Seated on time waiter good but food did not come out at the same time. Very noise. Nice varied menu from appetizers and pizza to full entrees
Wonderful! Attentive service, great wine and cocktails and delicious food--we will return--
Best Italian food on the west side!!! Nicest people work there as well!
Our "Go To" restaurant for Italian comfort food in a genial environment. Consistently delicious with high-quality ingredients, La Vecchia is one my top choice restaurants in the Los Angeles region. The casual elegant environment is perfect for every occasion.
Legit! Always Legit!
Awesome! The free birthday dessert was so special! Thank you!!
One of the best Italian restaurants on the westside!
La Vecchia has it all! Great classic Italian cuisine prepared to perfection, full of depth of flavor. The staff was incredible attentive and accommodating.
I ordered the tuna carpaccio which was not really fresh and I could not eat it. The green salad that came with it was too acidic. The ossobuco, however, was nice and tender served on a bed of rice and vegetables. The atmosphere is very lively and the staff are attentive and polite. I think the quality of the food is not up to the highest standards and could be improved.
