I have eaten at Il Vechio many times mainly when the previous owners ran it (pre 2013) I have also used it as a collection order when I didn't feel like getting dressed up and going out.

Don't think we will... More

Called in on the spur of the moment as we were in the area. It was early so there were only a few tables taken. Service was fantastic and we ordered our drinks and food swiftly. Both me and my husband had the special - roasted veal. Wow it was absolutely beautiful and full of flavour. I didn't want it... More

Our only issue was we wanted to split the bill between family and couples and evan individuals. Something that really shouldn't be complicated for a restaurant like this or that's what I thought.
