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.

Aleasandro was simply amazing. I dine frequently at La Vecchia, so I know how great it is generally, but I don’t think Alessandro has helped me before. He was so attentive & knew all the right things to say to put us at ease & make his visits to the table enjoyable. Definitely will be asking for him when we visit again.

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

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 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.

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.

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.

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.
