It seemed that takeout was their priority!
Our appetizers came within a reasonable time, but we waited a long time for our main course! When our food did arrive it wasn’t hot. I had the Calellini Sardi which was bland and slightly warm.
The pizza my youngest son ordered seemed to be okay, but my older son’s pasta wasn’t great.
It was difficult to get our waiter’s attention to get additional drinks.
Overall, it was a disappointment and don’t plan to return!!

Haven’t been here in a while. Food is still great and service is good. A little pricey but the servings are hefty and the quality is good.

Kevin, our waiter was attentive, personable and knowledgable, as was the rest of the staff we interacted with. Having dinner at a restaurant has been a fairly rare privilege the past 1.5 years and La Vecchia made it feel like a very welcome return to "normalcy".

Our server Alessandro was just amazing!! So kind and well versed. He spoke to us in italian and was sure to give us some of the best server hospitality we’ve ever had. He also gave the best recommendations on the menus. Didn’t miss! The penne alla vodka was delicious. Will be coming back here. Thank you!

The food and service was really good.. its just that the place is a bit small and there were too many people, all speaking at the top of their voice.. but i guess being overcrowded is a sign of good restaurant!?!

The only issue that we had an issue with was the spacing between other tables.

My chair was literally resting against the persons chair behind me. We were literally back to back.

We were 6 of us and while we all agreed that we enjoyed our meals very much we felt that the tables were too close together. Also the waiter would occasional lower his mask to talk to us if he thought we couldn’t hear him… which we did not like at all.

the table next to us was full of eight middle-aged drunk people who were being very noisy videos on their phones during the whole dinner. The atmosphere was ok but the noise level was quite high.

The food and ambience was good but the penne alla vodka tasted very strange. Not sure if there was an ingredient in there that usually isn’t in that dish but it was very different from normal. Service was excellent

First of all we had reservations for 830 and they made us wait outside for 10 minutes Before checking on us. Then they put us in another 20 minute hold at the front door and sat people out of order. Finally we hoped the night would take a turn for the better but it didn’t. The server was slow, we were ready to order drinks and he wanted to bring us water instead. We waited so long for our food to arrive, meanwhile the server wanted to the whole evenings order at once so why the delay? When the appetizer came, it was bland! And my main was too salty. I am so disappointed, something has changed at this restaurant…this used to be my family’s favourite restaurant, I will never go again.

Our server Allessandro was OUTSTANDING!!!! He is professional, courteous, kind, funny...I can't say enough about him. The food was out of this world and you could tell that the chef put his heart into the meal. Everything tasted homemade, like nonna made it and you could tell how fresh everything was. I can't sy enough about this restaurant other than I LOVED IT and I can't wait to go back!!!!

This restaurant has a nice decor and very attentive staff (sometimes too attentive for lunch time). The ambient music was loud Italian holiday music (a bit too loud). The Caprese salad was a tower of stacked tomato and cheese with Arugula lettuce sprinkled on top. It was a bit hard to eat and not that flavourful -- despite the creative display.

I wanted to have a romantic birthday with my wife. I spent a few days searching for this restaurant and reserved it -with much doubt-. Everything turned out great and I am definitely happy with it. I highly recommend it and will be returning soon.
