As I had been before and the meal and service was excellent. When I got there it was still the same people / management and the food was fantastic! And so was the... More

The food was OK but the service was shockingly poor. This is the second time I have visited this eatery. The first experience was poor. However the new owners had just taken over then, so we thought we would give them a second chance. To be fair it was very busy but we had booked a table. Slow to take... More

The service was not... More

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. The food was fantastic from the pre-owners and I must say I was thoroughly dissappointed when it changed hands. HOWEVER, after a particulary... More
