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 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!

Too noisy with the loud and screaming kids.... They should be separated from the general public.... People dine out for good food and relaxing ambient. The ambient was Fminus.

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

I used to think this place was amazing - it has really changed over the years. The menu has shrunk but the prices have not. I would expect with less items the quality would be the same or better. Not the case. I'm not sure I'd go back.

The food was really good. We had Bruschetta and marinated olives as appetizers and both were excellent. I had gnocchi which were light and fluffy with a simple but tasty tomato sauce and one of the best Caesar salads I’ve ever eaten. My husband had mushroom raviolis in a lovely mushroom sauce. The raviolis could have been cooked a bit longer, but the flavor was wonderful! The only thing that really needed improvement was the service. It was very slow. This may be because of a shortage of staff due to the pandemic. It may be that our waiter was covering too many tables. We will definitely visit La Vecchia again.
