My husband and I went here for dinner tonight. From the moment we arrived, our experience was nothing short of excellent. The staff were friendly, warm, and made sure we left happy customers. The food was outstanding! Everything was fresh and tasted homemade. I rate the service, food, and ambiance 10 out of the 10. I will be recommending everyone I know to come here and will most definitely be returning. If you love authentic Italian food then this restaurant is a MUST TRY!! You will not regret it.

The food was good, especially broiled mushrooms with Gorgonzola cheese was the best. Veal Oso Buco was excellent as well.

The ambiance was intimate and comfortable.

Went there on Saturday night for my birthday. When I booked the reservation it asked if it was a special occasion and I said my birthday. The hostess asked who’s birthday it was when we arrived and I told her it was mine. And that was it...didn’t receive anything special for the occasion so why ask us???????

Asked for pepper for our appetizers never got the pepper until our main course and even then we had to ask again.

Not the best service and disappointed that Birthday was not acknowledged

We have been repeat customers for years. We asked for a patio when we reserved. We knew it would
Be your rush time and therefore loud and busy. Which is why we reserved the patio. A table outside was not made available. Moments after we sat down, a table right beside the window opened up and y was joy offered to us. Very disappointing.

You don’t come here to have a meal. You come here to go out.
The service makes this place top shelf in conjunction with finely executed food each and every time

Wonderful food and great atmosphere. Our server (Alex) was friendly, funny and attentive. We were seated near the patio (inside) with windows open and the street noise was sometimes a bit loud, but as expected given the location. Food was very well prepared and quickly delivered. Espresso was great after dinner. A wonderful experience. Thank you.

The food was amazing. The pasta was cooked to perfection
I felt there was something missing in the sauce but then overall, it was delizioso 😋
I would definitely recommend going there for an authentic Italian food and hospitality.

I have been sampling and still conclude this place has the BEST Risotto in Toronto. Service is always excellent and the server is so knowledgeable and friendly. The manager informed me that they are opening up another location and I am worried if the chef will migrate as well. I will definitely return and continue to see if the standards remain high.

Before I would recommend La Vecchia, I would mention that the food is great, but it is VERY noisy and VERY dark. We sat outside this time, so it wasn't too bad, but inside is like eating in a dungeon. :(

It seems the quality of their new items is not as good. Our old favourites (4 cheese gnocchi, calamari, caprese, soups) were delicious as usual, but the meat ragu and the mushroom pasta were lackluster. The mushroom pasta especially was unappealing. It was almost like a soup and even tasted like mushroom soup. Service as always was warm and helpful. The atmosphere is nice but quite loud so difficult to hear for those a bit older :)

The place is gorgeous, unfortunately the service wasn’t that great at one point we had 2 or 3 people coming to service us, which is all good, but confusing. The food was good, wish the ragú wasn’t so salty and the gnocchi less dense. I guess it was an off night, I would still return.

I enjoyed sitting by the window (table for 5). It was like we were on vacation ... even with Yonge Street typical noise :)

Our waiter Stefan was extremely attentive and friendly!
The food was absolutely delicious! I had the branzino with roasted cherry tomatoes and capers on a bed of risotto, it was cooked to perfection. My husband and friends were also very happy with their meals. My friend requested a veal dish that wad not on the menu and both Stefan and the chef accommodated her without any issues!
Dessert for 4 was wonderful! I recommend it highly!
It is a friendly and wonderful neighbourhood gem!
You will not be disappointed whether it’s a casual dinner for 2 or a special occasion with friends!

My wife and I use to frequent this restaurant when I lived in the area. Is actually our favourite restaurant in the city. We hadn’t been back in at least 3 years since moving to the “burbs”. It was my wife’s birthday and we had our two little girls with us and decided that the occasion needed a great meal. Well did it ever deliver! Amazing service...wonderful food and great vibe! They’ve updated the interior since we last visited and it’s beautiful! Never been disappointed and learned also they are opening another location in a few weeks which is a little closer to where we live.

Go to this place if you haven’t done so! Still the best in the city in our opinion and the value for your $...I’m positive it won’t disappoint!
