There is no way to review the food, service, etc., since the establishment was closed at the time/date of our reservation (which had been confirmed, btw) and when I attempted to call them directly, the voice mailbox was full. Luckily my husband and I were able to find another restaurant.
Service was not great, which is unfortunate since the place was mostly empty
Great food and service
Very nice place to spend our anniversary
Decent food. Service was fine but not like fine dining. Sloppy and entrees weren't all served together
Food was good, presentation was average
Delicious and professional and attentive service! We can't wait to come back for another wonderful evening with friends and family!
Had a reservation at 7:45. Didn't get entree till 9:15. Food is delicious or we wouldn't go back
Needed more staff for the crowd. It is understandable as the summer season has not started at the shore. It was a beautiful weekend so large crowd may have been unusual . Food was excellent as always.
Love their Octopus!! We had the Halibut that was excellent! Friendly wait staff, good service and lovely atmosphere!
amazing easter dinner with my family, service and food were great, special easter menu was reasonably priced and gave us so much food!
Great food. Restaurant was busy but waiter did a good job
Ate at LVF while in town over Easter weekend for our daughter's birthday. Food was very good. I had the lobster ravioli with crab meat and scallops. Excellent!
Service was slow. Seemed to be understaffed. Maybe b/c it is still off season?
Always good food, early in the season and understaffed. We continually return cause the food is awesome!
Delicious food and great service as usual.
The homemade pasta with the seafood was a winner. Should definitely try it.
Service was spot on and food was delicious
The food was excellent, the atmosphere was great, and the service was friendly. I can't wait to go back.
The food was incredible and the service was excellent!
Another delicious dinner! From appetizers to dessert, well presented ,expertly prepared, in a comfortable non-rushed atmosphere. La Vecchia Fontana is one of the shore's best gems.
We have eaten at La Vecchia many times and have never had a bad experience. Service is better off season when it is less crowded, less noisy, less frenetic etc. Food is consistently good, well prepared and tasty. Service is sporadic depending on the crowds. Despite the frequency with which we dine there, always surprised that they seem not to recognize us. Room is large enough that even when it is crowded, there is sufficient space except for a couple of tables.
Prices are a bit high for what it is, but that seems to be the norm in Avalon. Higher prices than at many Center City Phila restaurants but that is the norm in Avalon.
Great little BYOB for a quiet, intimate dinner. Food was fantastic. Staff was courteous but service was definitely slow. The restaurant seemed understaffed but we were hoping that was because it was preseason (April) in a quiet beach town. Had a lovely evening and would definitely return.
Best lobster bisque in sj on previous reviews not even on the menu server & chef Didn't know how to plate veal Milanese 1 & done.
Eight of us had a great time, the food was excellent, the employees were friendly, attentive and interacted with all of us which made our night a lot of fun.
Excellent food and service. The homemade pasta was fabulous.
great food great service always delicious!
We were here with friends. One of many occasions at this restaurant. Food was excellent as usual. Service good even on a very busy Saturday night. Recommend La vecchia Fontana highly.
Have been to the restaurant many times . As always the friendly staff greeted us at the door. I had a wonderful pasta seafood special that was loaded with large shrimp and luscious lump crab meat ! My friends had the Veal special and Bronzino which were also very tasty. So many great dishes to choose . Have never been disappointed with my meal. Keep up with the GREAT service and food!
We had a wonderful meal. Food was great. The service was good.The spinach was excellent.
The food was excellent, the staff was very nice and service was outstanding . I had a wonderful dinner and definitely will be back.
Always great. Never even and average meal. Usually shore restaurants aren't great but this one is absolutely on par with any city top notch place. Go for it.
Everything was execellent from the Italian wedding soup to the veal Fontana
La Vecchia is one of our favorite restaurants! After being there many times since they opened, we can honestly say we have never had a bad dinner there. It can be rather noisy---at times even difficult for just 2 people to talk to & hear each other. (Maybe some soundproofing could be done?)
Nevertheless, their food is delicious and nicely prepared; often do the specials, which are also always very good. Sooo...5 for food, usually 5 for service, unless they are unexpectedly busy on an off season evening--then a 4.
Came to celebrate my mom's birthday. The calamari was light and fresh, our salads were delicious, and everyone ate their ENTIRE dish! The lobster ravioli special was incredible. Great sauces. And BYOB! Definitely will be returning.
Great dining experience can't wait to visit again. Would Highly recommend
Excellent find on OpenTable. Family loved it. Izzy was great server and food was phenomenal... very tasty. Will go back. Only hope, that they might bring in some better artwork and redecorate slightly... would make a huge improvement and create a more intimate atmosphere. But overlook that for great meal, nice staff and good location.
Wonderful service and delicious food. Always great to dine at la Vecchia
Excellent!! The waiter was extremely attentive and pleasant. The portion of chicken parm was huge and so tender. Everything was delicious and fresh! I highly recommend La Vecchia Fontana and another bonus..it is a BYOB!!!
Loved everything that we order and service was great.
