Customer Testimonials

We stumbled upon La Vecchia while trying to find another restaurant. It was very late and obvious they were closing yet, they seated us anyway. Despite our late arrival the staff was awesome. They were friendly, accommodating and funny and provided us some of the best service I have ever received.
The food was outstanding. The whole experience was delightful and the prices were also extremely reasonable. Additionally, the restaurant is privately owned and operated. The owner/chef was on sight to say hello. Places like these are rare finds and SOOOOOO much better than the run of the mill chain operations.
I would HIGHLY recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting (or living in) Reno.

My family and I just wanted to thank
you all for an amazing dinner you put together for our parents surprise
25th wedding anniversary party. We traveled from Seattle not ever seeing or
eating at your restaurant I picked it on a whim! I’m so happy I did the food
couldn’t have been better! We all loved our dinners and desert as a matter of
fact days later everyone is still raving about it!  The service was the best
we’ve ever had from the phone conversations trying to set up the long distance
surprise to your staff making us a small wedding cake and letting me decorate
it. We also wanted to thank you for creating a kids menu for us I have to say
you guys went above and beyond what any other restaurant would have ever done.
We would recommend your restaurant to anyone just wanting a dinner for two or a
party of fifty!
