Had dinner here with my husband and it was wonderful. Food was fresh and delicious and their wine recommendation was also great. Ambience and atmosphere was just what we wanted so had a wonderful evening and will definitely visit again if in LA

Le Vecchia is a very popular place for dinner but as we found out this weekend it's also a great place for a leisurely Sunday brunch. The service (from Mike) was excellent. They open at 11 a.m. and we were seated at a great table...More

Visited La Vecchia Cucina with my wife on a weekday and we were both treated with genuine traditional Italian food which really tasted "home-cooked" (we both had pastas which came in generous portions with lots of flavour). Nothing particularly fancy about the interior, but definitely...More

Dropped in on a Thursday night, family of 4 no reservations. They seated us quickly and we had an amazing meal. We told them we were celebrating our 15th wedding anniversary and they surprised us with an amazing panna cotta dessert.

Off the beach a few blocks this gem recommended by a local and did I ever enjoy my early dinner and lively conversation. Methinks this is a better value and a authentic experience.

This was by far the best Italian meal we've had in years! The pasta is homemade, sauce is incredible, lasagna was super. The only negative is how loud it is in there and a bit cramped. Didn't love the atmosphere.

thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers,
roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the
famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles
