Return local customers. Spur of the moment dinner out with family on the 4th was a good decision. Sat outside and enjoyed a mild weather evening. Everything was great; makes this review easy . Clams casino stood out among the starters, although the mussels were also wonderful. Pasta and chicken dishes were fresh and it was obvious the chef took... More

Honestly, service was excellent but the food was not so good. Calamari was tasteless, gnocchi had a store bought taste to it. I don't know. For all the hype this place receives for its pasta my family and I were NOT impressed. Again. Service was excellent, but the food was NOT worth the $$$!

A great Italian bistro in Newton. The restaurant has indoor, outdoor and in between seating. The in between area is covered and had air conditioning and fans, but the outer wall is open to where the outside seating is. This is a great option as you have an outdoor feel but avoid the weather if it is too hot or... More

Owned by LaStalla's original chef, they are true to their Italian roots. Very accommodating on special dietary requests. Outdoor dining in warmer months. We have eaten here or ordered take-out several times and we've never been disappointed. Try the Cavalli and broccoli in garlic and oil. Yum. BYOB, to boot. Worth the trip. Reservations advised.

Last night we had dinner with friends at Vecchia Osteria. We like that it is a BYOB and their food is excellent. I had a pasta dish and my husband had veal. The bruchetta that they serve is an extra touch. We sat outside on the patio since it was such a nice evening. It is definitly one of our... More

I've eaten at Vecchia many times over the past whatever years, and in the dining out desert of Newtown, PA, and Bucks co. in general, it's been consistently good Italian food. My last visit Friday as part of a party of nine was just okay. Party of nine can be a problem, and sitting inside on a nice evening(we requested... More

My family arrived at Vecchia Osteria around 7:30 on Sunday evening after attending granddaughter's dance recital. When we arrived there was no one at the front desk to greet people and there were a number of folks waiting. After about a 5 minute wait someone came out and they did get people seated in a reasonable time frame. Unfortunately, things... More
