The philosophy behind La Vecchia is to create a casual but refined ambiance, in which we prepare and serve authentic/progressive Northern Italian fare at reasonable prices. We have a fantastic seasonal patio dining overlooking Reno. No-corkage Tuesday’s BYOB. Our chef and his staff want diners to feel comfortable and welcome. Our pasta is made in house and so are our ravioli, we feature thin crusted, handcrafted wood-fired pizza. We are committed to reducing our impact on the environment and support sustainable agriculture through our purchases. Our menu comprise the freshest local and California organic ingredients, with specials that change seasonally. A local neighborhood restaurant for 25 years and a great gathering spot with beers on tap, a diverse wine list and expertly crafted cocktails.
GREAT PATIO SEATING TOO!!!

We dine at LaVecchia frequently, and it has always been a positive experience! The staff is attentive and knowledgeable about the food. The food is consistently served hot and delicious. We especially love their eggplant mellazane ,the pasta dishes (rigatoni norma and linguini seafood) as well as any of the veal entrees. We would also recommend any of the salads, and creamy polenta as a side. You can't get a better value for the price! We love LaVecchia!!!

My partner and I celebrated an occasion here and the service was fantastic! They even gave us a free tiramisu and wrote "congrats" on the plate to make the occasion even more special!

We have been meaning to try LeVecchia for some time now after seeing it while we dined at Skyline. Drove 35 minutes to LeVecchia. I had chicken parm ($21), dry, zero flavor on chicken and diced tomatoes (no sauce of any sort), Wife had linguine seafood dish ($24), broth was OK, seafood seemed fresh. Mother in law had the salmon with spinach ($24). It was just ok. Drinks are pricey ($9.00) for a titos and water. $3 upcharge for a martini. $154 later, the food was not nearly worth the value. If in that area again, we will just go to Skyline. We will continue to support our local Pietror's in Sparks where the food is much better than LeVacchia. I'd be surprised if LeVecchia is even cooked by italians.

The only thing I did not like is being told how long we get the table for. I totally understand with less tables and all but I felt rushed. We usually have a full 4 course meal but couldn’t do that the hostess keep coming over and looking when our 90 minutes was up and we were having coffee and desert. Food and service was fantastic, just felt rushed.

Overall excellent food and service. The special swordfish was cooked perfectly and was very fresh. Even though not on the menu, the chef made me a shrimp cocktail as an appetizer. Good drinks and wine list

Promptly sat with reservation on a busy Saturday evening. Great environment moderate noise level. Approachable wine list with a decent variety. Exciting and diverse menu.

2 of us chose 1 of the 4 chefs daily specials and were not disappointed, full of flavor and a delight to eat! The others chose menu staples and were quite impressed.

La Vecchia always delivers and we will continue to dine here.

We all decided to eat at La Vecchia for my birthday. I have been there before but not in a long, long time. I had invited two good friends that are picky Italian eaters so I was hoping the food had not changed from the last time I was there. It hadn't! It was actually better. Lou and Misha are the picky Italian eaters. Misha had the linguine and clams and Lou had the veal. They both said the dinner was very delicious and would eat there again. I had the Chilean sea bass, made perfectly.
The service was excellent. I will be going back for sure!

Everything was great and the food was amazing. We did get an appetizer from their specials that day that was quite expensive considering the small amount and preparation that went into it, but everything else was great! The service was a little slow, especially since they told us we only had 90 minutes to eat there due to it being NYE and being at limited capacity. We would’ve been done much sooner had it not taken so long for our dinner to come out after our salads were done. We had already been there for 75 minutes when they finally brought us a dessert menu and we had already had to ask our busser for the check. That’s just a tiny little thing that wasn’t a big deal though, just something to consider for if you go there. Otherwise it’s a great and delicious fine dining experience and the restaurant is beautiful!

Salad was not worth the price. Clearly the artichokes came straight out of the can/jar. Both pasta dishes were too salty, clams clearly not fresh. Waiter kept grabbing our drinks from the rim vs middle of the glass
