La Veechia,
by far is an absolute delight. I have been here many times and one thing I must say is "CONSISTENCY" . We were there for a business meeting, the volume of the atmosphere was great that we were able to have a good conversation within the group with out shouting. The food was great, management wonderful - wine selection perfect. I would definitely recommend this place for all who love Italian food and want a great selection of food for a amazing price point. Can not wait until I go back!

La Vecchia is one of the most romantic restaurants in the T-dot, small and intimate it reminds me of a cozy joint in Italy. I would go at an off hour before the rush .. just before 5 or a late supper.. That way you can fully appreciate the ambiance.

One of the best spots for Italian food in the GTA. Calamari is unreal and the selections are great. Definitely will return.

The managers and staff at La Vecchia were outstanding. After a little dining accident that resulted in spilled wine and broken glass, the team lept into motion and had us new meals and a cleaned up table in minutes. They were so gracious! What a pleasure to have dinner there. We'll definitely be back for an occasion soon!

Great food and excellent service. The Tiaglatelle with Porcini mushrooms is amazing. Great Tuscany wine.
Only snag is there are lots of construction on Yonge in the vicinity and parking can be ex pop endive.

The food is always great and consistent. The servers are attentive and friendly. It’s been a long serving restaurant in the Yonge and Eg community. This shows that it’s well liked.

First, they couldn’t find my booking, though I kept showing them the confirmation on the Opentable app kn my phone. It took them ten minutes to seat us.

Then, it a very long time for the server to come and take our order.

The food was mostly very good, with the exception of my daughter’s Nutella crepes, which were served cold for some inexplicable reason, and had barely been introduced to Nutella at all.

Among the desserts, the pan a coat was very good, and the tiramisu was ok, not as good as usual.

We have never been disappointed with La Vecchia, the food and services is always top notch. It was my sister and her husband’s anniversary so we treated them to dinner. My brother-in-law could have ordered several more pasta dishes as it was so good he didn’t want it to end.

Mixed review about my experience. We had our anniversary date here recently. It was a Saturday night. So the place was busier than usual.

My fiancé ordered the minestrone soup but it was disappointing. The soup was more like a stew with just zucchini’s and carrots and onions. Classic Italian minestrone soup should have more broth and must be with pasta. There was NO pasta in the soup.

The flavour of the veggies didn’t make it taste as good as we expected.

Our main entrees (pasta dishes) were also Mediocre nothing special. I’d stick with the pizzas so you don’t get disappointed.

One of my favorite Toronto destinations, I had gone frequently for years, then moved away and hadn't been back in 15 years, 1st time back did not disappoint! Even better than before (if that is possible), Servixe is spectacular, food delicious, prices moderate and the wine list is well above standard

A very enjoyable meal. It was our 7th year anniversary. Our food was great. Our server was fabulous. The only issue was the gin martini was a bit watered down. B

The restaurant is very lovely, however we had to wait a long time for our food to come. Food was delicious once it came in. Also we had a party of 9 and for some reason they decided to put everything on one bill. They assumed we’d split it equally. We had to spend some time dividing up the bill then.

Everything was great. We were seated at a tiny table by the closet but were moved as soon as a regular table was available. The music and overall chatter in the restaurant was very loud that we could not have a conversation while sitting across of each other. This is a restaurant and not a night club. That is the only con of our first time visit. Food and service was good

Service was excellent. Unfortunately my pasta meal was very dull. Not much flavour. Most important all 4 meals came to the table luke warm.
I've read and heard from others that complaning to the manager brings no
Posititive results.
