Service and ambiance really are impeccable! The food is great too but for the money spent there is other Italian food in Toronto that is tastier. We did really like the risotto and the capricciosa pizza. I would still come back though! :)
Very good, will return
Creative and flavourful daily specials. Excellent fish with a great mussel appetizer.
This is a favourite neighbourhood spot for us over the past several years. Always a winner
Had a great night. Good service
Great food and service.
Our server Kevin was wonderful.
Only complaint is how dark it is inside. Only an issue when trying to read the menu.
Excellent everything every time we dine here. Can’t go wrong.
Delicious Italian food, great wine selection. Would recommend for dates or small groups.
Food was not what I remembered it to be and nothing like the website demonstrates. Service was lacking and overall an experience I wouldn't want to share with another again.
Amazing food, a little hectic and on the louder level on a 9pm Saturday night but I suppose that's a good thing. Once we got settled in even though the restaurant was jammed the food came incredibly efficiently no delays (which was what I was expecting with a full house). We loved our server, very friendly and patient. The host at the door was a bit annoying when we arrived, but that was quickly forgotten once we got seated. Avoid the front on busy evenings because people will stand and wait as their tables are prepared. It's a great restaurant, the lighting is excellent for dining and ambience (I dislike overhead lights, which they don't have here thankfully), but do bring your iPhone flashlight to read the menu, then after that you're good to go.
Food was very good, had the Veal chop, cooked perfectly very flavourful, pizza was also good, Thin cripy crust. Had an early reservation on a Saturday so the restaurant was very quite. Did say it was for a birthday but the restaurant did not acknowledge but we opted to skip desert
Overall it was good. Although we were not pleased with the manager attitude initially. He gave us a table in front of the door and asked our friend to take his hat off which I think it was out of place. If there are special dress codes, it should be mentioned on their website or when we call to reserve. To me it looked like everyone else were also dressed casually. Another time we passed by this restaurant and wanted to try it out without reservation, the manager rudely replied that he cannot accommodate a table for two. This is okay in general for a busy dinner hour and a decent restaurant but having some manners goes a long way! Anyway, this was two strikes for the manager of this place and don't be surprised if you see something similar!!
My first time coming to this restaurant and I will definitely be back! Great food, service and ambiance.
First time at the restaurant. Too many good items on the menu. made it difficult to get to my short list. Normally that list is two after review of the menu. This time I had five and final decision very difficult. It was delicious. Only criticism was that tables two small even for two.
This was my second time dining at La Vecchia for lunch. Beautifully cooked and well-seasoned pasta. Attentive service without being overbearing. Lovely dessert. Quite a midday treat.
They won't let u sit down until everyone in your parties are present, they won't separate the bill but we got a very funny and entertaining server which turn my upset mode from arguing with one of the staff into a better night. His wine and food recommendation is perfect.
Great food, great service, great wine.
Appetizers of antipasto and grilled calamares were excellent for sharing before the main dishes. Service is attentive and efficient. Food arrives in a timely manner.
Girlfriend’s get together. Pizzas were great and a nice selection. Service friendly and prompt. Complimentary lemoncello to finish off our meal. Would go back again.
Excellent food and good service.
Host/server was annoyed when someone from our party showed up 10 minutes early, even though many tables not filled. As well, while waiting for the rest of the party we said we were hungry and the server suggested ordering bruschetta, and then later found out we could have had table bread. The food was very delicious, but the server attitude was not appreciated.
Great little gem on Yonge
The risotto was undercooked.
The pizzas and pastas here are great. The sea bass and the veal chops are also excellent. Delicious desserts.
Very good service
Always a good time, the food is always excellent and service is always good. The prices are very reasonable and the ambiance is nice.
We have eaten at this establishment many times and We are never disappointed by the service, food and atmosphere. The people who work at La Vecchia take pride in what they do. The food is mouth watering and the atmaosphere is very casual/romantic. Such a beautiful place.
Excellent cucumber, tomato, and feta salad. Absolutely delish!
Veal for main was also very tasty. Large portions, but could have been hotter.
Service, .... the best!!
Only major complaint was the noise level, very loud on a Sat night.
Might consider putting some noise reduction baffles on the ceilings.
Decor a little tired
Great neighbourhood gem.
Would highly recommend.
Great Food & excellent service from Alex. There is a really nice ambience in this restaurant and you can actually have a conversation without yelling. We'll be back
Our dinner at La Vecchia was fantastic! The service from Alexandra was outstanding and the food was delicious, as always. This has become our favourite neighbourhood restaurant.
The service was great, the food for me was OK nothing especial.
Excellent food and service!
Want a good Italian meal - lunch or dinner. You cannot go wrong. Food, GREAT; Service GREAT. However be prepared for busy, tables a little close together, and noisy depending on the crowd and time of day. But for food and service just GO GO GO. And Enjoy.
The food and service all and all was incredible! Alessandra was our server. She was friendly, well knowledged, and attentive. I highly recommend La Vecchia to anyone looking for authentic Italian cuisine. A Y&E gem!! I look forward to visiting again soon!
This restaurant has been consistently good. My husband and I have been going for 17 years! They renovated lower level looks great, and would be great for a private event/ celebration. The service is friendly and efficient. It's a neighbourhood gem.
Attentive service, pleasant atmosphere , food very tasty and nicely presented.
Great service even thou it was very busy
This place has been around for a very long time and continues to be very busy, likely due to the great service and very flavourful food. It is a competitive business to be in and they are doing it right.
We go to this restaurant regularly for special occasions. It is the only place where I actually savour the dishes. However, on this evening, the service was unusually mediocre. I am accustomed to having wait staff that truly enjoy food. This time, though, the waitress seemed rushed and non-committal. Such a shame, as it was a birthday celebration.
Always consistently amazing food, service and ambiance. Gotta love this place!
Another found gem by following Open table reviews and rating.
You think you are in a New York city restaurant,
With the buzz, great smart service, enentertaining and knowledge staff.
And great food with a unique private wine list.
We will be back
