Stone covered walls adorned with Italian pictures and art, along with authentic cuisine capture the true European dining experience at La Vecchia. From the appetizers to the main entrées, the secrets of each dish at La Vecchia have been passed down through the generations to ensure that Italian food is made just right. While this restaurant boasts a lengthy menu of homemade pizzas, freshly caught fish dishes, and chicken specialties, diners can rest assured that every item is prepared from scratch.
Mussels sautéed in roasted garlic lemon essence, and olive oil marinated veal tenderloin covered with shaved parmesan are two of the restaurant’s notable appetizers. For the main course, every possible combination of penne, capellini, gnocchi, and risotto is on the menu. Pesto tomato sauce, roasted garlic olive oil, and basil rosé sauce are made fresh throughout the day. A must-try is their risotto La Vecchia stuffed with jumbo tiger shrimp and topped with a simmering white wine and kiwi sauce.
Eat Some Greens!
Huge selections of thin crust pizzas, which are large enough to share, will complete one’s daily requirement of veggies. Pizza toppings include snow peas, goat cheese, red peppers, spinach, mushrooms…and the list goes on. For seafood lovers, shrimp, clams, calamari, and red snapper fillet are scattered throughout most appetizers and main courses. On the weekends, La Vecchia attracts a large crowd of early diners who come to feast before catching a flick. To avoid a wait, reservations are recommended.
