Been here a number of times and it's nearly always the same Forget having a quiet meal and chats with friends or romantic meal for two because you'll probably be sat next to a long table seated with friends shouting from one end to the other!

We love to visit La Vela. The service is good and the food absolutely delicious. Good choice of wine. Extremely accommodating to vegan daughter who said it was one of the best meals she had in a restaurant! We usually visit every five or six weeks and like to take family and friends there.

As 'locals' we come quite often. Less in the summer for obvious reasons but in the Winter it is definately our place to go. We went last night , great welcome from Yash . Good wine choices both red and white. Efficient service even though it was busy, we were not rushed or forgotten. Busy for takeaway. Lovely antipasto with... More

Good food, pleasant atmosphere, service can be a little slow sometimes but staff are friendly and very polite. Have a beer before going as it can be quite pricey.

Very busy and very expensive. It is a while since we have been here and found it seems to be more expensive than in the past.
