Food and atmosphere excellent

Charming atmosphere, beautiful chandeliers and old stone walls covered with vintage black and white photos. The food was excellent, and our server was absolutely lovely. A bit pricey, but really a wonderful experience overall. One thing to note is the two-hour limit on dining, which is best to know about in advance. If you have a group that wants to reunite, two hours is kind of short, but that's the policy.

La Vecchia Italian Ristorante My boyfriend and I visted La Vecchia on September 25 at 6:00 pm. We ordered a bottle of red wine and order the grilled calamari appetizer, both were excellent. We placed our order for our entrees; I ordered the seafood risotto and my boyfriend order seafood linguine. When our order was brought to our table, the presentation was disappointing to start. They brought me a mushroom risotto which I did not order, however I did try it and it was very bland and flavourless. My boyfriend's dish was also a disappointment. The server came back to our table and I explained to her I was given the wrong dish and my boyfriends dish was tasteless. It was a can of tomatoes mixed with the pasta. The server apologized and took the dishes back to the kitchen. I explained to her that I love this restaurant and I frequent it often so I asked if it was a different cook in the kitchen and her response was yes. The new dishes were brought out to us. Now I didn't receive the risotto but rice with seafood, again tasteless and bland. My boyfriends dish they added garlic and butter huge disappointment. We were not happy. The owner of the restaurant brought out the box of risotto and told me this is what they use and it is the best risotto. That's fine but this is not risotto. Risotto is a creamy and my dish I could pick each kernel individually, therefore not risotto. In any event we received our bill with the full charge for the entrees which we did not eat. The Owner had no class and definitely no customer service skills. I was very disappointed with his actions dismissing my dissatisfaction after knowing I was a regular customer. La Vecchia will no longer be receiving my business.

Best Italian food in Toronto

Conveniently located on Yonge Street north of Roehampton. Easy to get to by subway. Lots of public parking around if you drive. The food is the best Italian ever, and I have eaten in Italy. Most professional waiters that really make you feel special without hovering. Divine desserts.

Went with my family and Mother for the Victoria Day Weekend. Was quite surprised how nice the place is. The entrance door is apparently imported from Italy and is about 400yr old! Great service, no one complained about the tip (we gave about 13%). All male waiters, very polite, attentive without being annoying. Fast service considering how busy they were. Parking is somewhat of a problem, but that's Toronto. Good food, well presented, would certainly return.

This place is fantastic. We've never been disappointed. They always treat you like royalty and the food is out of this world. Our favourites are the Carpaccio and the pizza la vecchia; the beef ravioli is also phenomenal. Our waitress was Alessandra and she was GREAT! She made us feel like guests in her home, treated our friends kids like adults (which they loved!) Overall just a great evening with great food, great wine and great service!

Very nice place with warm atmosphere and friendly service. Unfortunately, we did not enjoy the food very much: the Minestrone soup and the vegetarian pizza were both disappointing. Indeed the chef's special lamb was good, but you would expect a special dish (which is also quite expensive) to be good. All in all, lovely place, lovely people, probably good specialties, but if you can't trust the regular Italian menu...perhaps you need to look for Italian food elsewhere.

Went to this restaurant to catch up with a friend I haven't seen in a while. While the atmosphere was good, it was extremely busy and crowded. We both had to yell to be heard as the noise level was loud. The food was good, ordered the lamb special which I would recommend. I would come back here again but on a less busier evening.

Everything was great. We both ordered the specials even though there was a lot to choose from on the menu. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars on the food is because my second piece of meat was quite uncooked (asked for medium, it was rare). We will be back!

Went to dinner at La Vecchia for Valentine's Day. We were seated in the lower level, which quaintly resembled a wine cellar. I really liked the atmosphere and the staff were very helpful. The food came quickly and they were very accommodating of food restrictions for one of our party. Would definitely return.

Great vegetarian dishes around Yonge and Eglinton

This cozy and romantic spot is the perfect starting point for a couples’ date night. Holiday menus are offered depending on the season and the regular menu is full of tasty vegetarian dishes made from classic Italian ingredients. Try the vegetarian pizza or ask the chef to put a veggie spin on your favourite risotto or pasta recipe. The minestrone vegetable soup is the answer when a cold day turns up.

Romantic dinner spots around Yonge and Eglinton Toronto

Romantic dinner spots around Yonge and Eglinton Toronto

Modern Italian food meets old-world charm, starting with the gorgeous brick and wood exterior. Inside, the décor is stunning, with its stone walls and bar, delicate chandeliers, hardwood flooring, sumptuous leather chairs and a red velvet curtain that separates the front and back rooms. The best seats are near the front, especially on warm evenings when the glass doors stay open to let in the breeze. Bello.
