Food is amazing, totally worth it but if you are black or brown or young, don’t bother dining in. This restaurant projects microaggressive behaviours and I rather just get take out and eat at home without being stared at or having 5 different staff members ask me about my meal. Mind you there was a cold draft where I was sitting it wasn’t until the end of my meal they put in heaters. We stayed for an hour ate our food and left because it was uncomfortable
Grest restaurant with excellent food. We enjoyed it very much.
What a great experience for our 20th Anniversary! Great food as always:very consistent and tasty with the same main chef for over a decade at least!
We have been coming here for 15 years and it's still great with the same owners and amazing staff! Thanks Christopher and the great Maitre D.
I tend to go to LaVecchia for special occasions and am never disappointed. Alessandro makes point of saying hello, ensures that we a surprise at end of meal. The food is wonderful - salads fresh and dressed perfectly. My favourite is the arugula, Gorgonzola, walnut pear salad. My new favourite pasta is the tagliatelle fungi: beautiful flavour, lots of wild mushrooms. Their tiramisu is the best!
Disappointed in the service. We were the only table and and took over 30 minutes to get a drink. Also requested 3 portions of an appetizer as there were 3 of us and the answer was no... most restaurants would simply deliver 3 portions when they see 3 people at the table. I wasn't expecting the extra portion for free but to have a simple no even after I pushed was very dissappointing.
We had a great time, lovely ambiance, great food, friendly and helpful staff, we will be back!
Great food. Enjoyed dinner. Needs wider space for the crowd.
packed at holiday season. barely any walking space. improve bar.
Servers are great.
Great place and great food! Nice interior inside and wonderful service.
A local spot well worth a visit - and return . Good broad variety brunch and lunch selections at reasonable price and good portions
We had reservation for 4 people Nov 13 @ 8:45pm. Arrived a bit early 8:30pm and the greeter mention that they weren't able to seat us early and we had to wait till our reservation time, no problem we waited. We waited till 9pm and went back to ask how much longer for our table, they mentioned that it would be 5mins or so.
9:10 asked if our table is ready and they mentioned not yet all while there have been large groups that booked after us getting seated before us. I asked how many people are in front of us and the girl mentioned that no else is and we are next to be seated only to see a group of 4 being seated in front us. Got fed up with the lies and excuses and by the time we left it was about 9:30. Seems like they overbook reservations.
Honestly wouldn't mind the wait time but the fact that they keep saying 5 min or that we are next but clearly it wasn't the case. Left bad taste in mouth.
Fun spot, great food, server wasn’t very friendly and the amount of noise was so horrendous that I had a sore throat when I got home from shouting to the person beside me.
I have been going to LaVecchia for over 10 years, and have always had a good experience. This time was different. I understand that Covid has been especially hard for restaurants but after such a sub-standard meal we won't be returning.
Great food and great service. Music, though enjoyable, too loud.
La Veccia is a lovely Italian staple in midtown. Classic fair, a good winelist and fine cocktails. The service is very attentive. Their new restaurant on Marine Parade is also a top summertime destination with one of the best patios in the city.
The food and service were good. But the noise level was unbearable. There was no need to turn the music on foe so loud, which then triggered the patrons to speak louder which in turn makes the noise level louder and very unbearable.
Fabulous food, staff & atmosphere! Keep it up!
The food was great and the staff were so incredibly nice. Overall great experience.
The food is delicious. Wine as well. The service is exceptional, especially if you have Alessandro (Alex) as a server. Very entertaining, great jokes. The management is very thoughtfull, present in the restaurant, always trying to accomodate any request.
Amazing as always!!! Not just lunch, an experience
Great food, great service, great ambience - a great experience!
We've enjoyed La Vecchia for many years, and, although throughout the pandemic we were able to enjoy their wonderful food using take out, it was a joy to be able to return to inside dining. We were very happy to see that they are taking every precaution to ensure our safety. The food is still fabulous, and the staff are warm,, friendly, and extremely efficient. We will return often, and we will definitely recomment La Vecchia to our friends and family.
Incredible as always. One of my favourite spots to eat in the city. Great food and atmosphere. Staff are fantastic.
Great food and ambience! Menu was different in person than what’s listed on open table though.
Waiter was really nice, food was not great or Italian at all.
Basement was no good
Amazing food, service and ambience. One of the best Italian restaurants in the city!
The service was impeccable, fast and the food was delicious
Jordan was a wonderful server and the food was beyond yum
Wonderful food and service…
The food were overcooked. We sat near the stairs and everytime the waiter come up he made a lot of noise running up the stairs.
The waiter took long to give our bill too busy.
Great professional service and always good food would go back again
Great food, great service. Sadly, too many flies inside due to store next door. Problem needs to be fealty with professionally.
Staffed were mortified & tried very hard.
This was my first time at this restaurant. Casual dinner with a friend. The ambiance was lively, food was delicious. Service was very good. Due to COVID, many restaurants have only a 1.5 to 2 hours limit per table. So it felt a little rushed. I would definitely go back for the food.
The brunch was excellent, much better than expected. A definite must try
I took my girlfriend here for her birthday last night. The staff were super friendly, attentive, and thoughtful! The food was superb and at the end of our dinner they brought her a lovely cake with a candle.
Definitely will come here again and reccommend anyone to dine at La Vecchia!
I went there with family for my brother's birthday. It was an excellent experience from the moment we arrived to the moment we left. The food, servers, vibe were all incredible and we all had a great time. Definitely worth the price. Thank you!
Excellent food and service.
At times the background music was a bit loud however did not interfere with conversation.
Kale salad was not very tasty but main dishes were delicious
