First of all the place was very over crowded and the service didnt cater for all those people.this resulted in customers turning back from the bar. The worst bit was when we ordered 2 simple platters of cold cuts which included throwing in pieces of...More

Vecchia is one of my fav winebars. It is located next to the seabank and you smell the fish coming from the fishboats parked just outside the bar. Occasionally on Fridays you can find a local band as well.

My husband and I had a great dinner outside in a relaxed atomosphere with live music and stunning night harbor view. Their fish plate as appatizer was super great. We would definitely repeatedly come if we stayed in st.paul bay longer.
