Italian
The philosophy behind La Vecchia is to create a casual but refined ambiance, in which we prepare and serve authentic/progressive Northern Italian fare at reasonable prices. We have a fantastic seasonal patio dining overlooking Reno. No-corkage Tuesday’s BYOB. Our chef and his staff want diners to feel comfortable and welcome. Our pasta is made in house and so are our ravioli, we feature thin crusted, handcrafted wood-fired pizza. We are committed to reducing our impact on the environment and support sustainable agriculture through our purchases. Our menu comprise the freshest local and California organic ingredients, with specials that change seasonally. A local neighborhood restaurant for 25 years and a great gathering spot with beers on tap, a diverse wine list and expertly crafted cocktails.
GREAT PATIO SEATING TOO!!!

    We were seated at a table that was not properly distanced for the pandemic. We were less than 3 feet from the adjacent table. Some of the employees were not wearing masks. They boys’ risotto special was a delicious hit. Pasta cooked property but they forgot the clam sauce.

    Food and service were excellent, far superior to what one would expect from a neighborhood strip mall restaurant. Unfortunately, the outdoor seating area is starkly adjacent to parked cars and all the obnoxious noises they make. Perhaps the proprietors could add greenery to soften the area and buffer noises. We will come back for the delicious gnocchi and ravioli, and the excellent pacing of our 4-course meal.

    Lovely restaurant with very attentive staff. My husband ordered the cheese plate and I had the spinach/pear salad for appetizers (both very good). For dinner I went with the spaghetti carbonara (it was done just right - the egg and cream melded together. It should not be alfredo sauce and it should not be scrambled eggs on the pasta - just sayin'). My husband had the meat ravioli (did not care for the meat sauce on it). I also tried a cocktail specialty, the Tuscan Sunset, and it was quite good.

    I've loved LaVecchia for a number of years. Used to give it 5 stars. It's still good, but I've noticed some cutting of quality during pandemic. The house marinated olives used to be a wonderful, diverse selection of many sizes of olives. As a lover of good olives I ordered it every time. This time it was primarily a bunch of the smallest black olives I've ever seen. I won't order it again. The linguine with seafood was great, with lots of seafood. But the linguine wasn't linguine, just big fat spaghetti noodles. I'm hoping LaVecchia goes back to the quality I loved instead of cutting corners. We'll see.

    Two of us ordered off the special selections and we felt the portions were a bit sparse. I guess we should have ordered an appetizer or a salad. One of us ordered pasta off the main menu and the portion was large. We saw several other orders on other tables near us and the portions appeared generous, so maybe it was just what we ordered. Food was good and service was just right.

    We dine at LaVecchia frequently, and it has always been a positive experience! The staff is attentive and knowledgeable about the food. The food is consistently served hot and delicious. We especially love their eggplant mellazane ,the pasta dishes (rigatoni norma and linguini seafood) as well as any of the veal entrees. We would also recommend any of the salads, and creamy polenta as a side. You can't get a better value for the price! We love LaVecchia!!!

    We have been meaning to try LeVecchia for some time now after seeing it while we dined at Skyline. Drove 35 minutes to LeVecchia. I had chicken parm ($21), dry, zero flavor on chicken and diced tomatoes (no sauce of any sort), Wife had linguine seafood dish ($24), broth was OK, seafood seemed fresh. Mother in law had the salmon with spinach ($24). It was just ok. Drinks are pricey ($9.00) for a titos and water. $3 upcharge for a martini. $154 later, the food was not nearly worth the value. If in that area again, we will just go to Skyline. We will continue to support our local Pietror's in Sparks where the food is much better than LeVacchia. I'd be surprised if LeVecchia is even cooked by italians.

    The only thing I did not like is being told how long we get the table for. I totally understand with less tables and all but I felt rushed. We usually have a full 4 course meal but couldn’t do that the hostess keep coming over and looking when our 90 minutes was up and we were having coffee and desert. Food and service was fantastic, just felt rushed.

    Promptly sat with reservation on a busy Saturday evening. Great environment moderate noise level. Approachable wine list with a decent variety. Exciting and diverse menu. 2 of us chose 1 of the 4 chefs daily specials and were not disappointed, full of flavor and a delight to eat! The others chose menu staples and were quite impressed. La Vecchia always delivers and we will continue to dine here.

    We all decided to eat at La Vecchia for my birthday. I have been there before but not in a long, long time. I had invited two good friends that are picky Italian eaters so I was hoping the food had not changed from the last time I was there. It hadn't! It was actually better. Lou and Misha are the picky Italian eaters. Misha had the linguine and clams and Lou had the veal. They both said the dinner was very delicious and would eat there again. I had the Chilean sea bass, made perfectly. The service was excellent. I will be going back for sure!
