Didn't have a bad dinner here, it was just nothing to really write home about. Four of us split a calamari appetizer; it was a pretty small portion and not the best I've had. Marinara sauce was tasty. Probably wouldn't order that again. Other people around us had ordered salads and those looked like the way to go, especially the... More

We have been here several times and the food is excellent. The service is very good. The desserts are made by Anna, Pasquale's wife. Oh My God, they all are incredible. There is outdoor seating also. I strongly suggest reservations a week before. Its a BYOB. Very busy restaurant and very noisy. The tables aver very close together and its... More

My husband and I were thrilled to find this gem so close to our home. We felt like we walked into a real trattoria in Italy! We were warmly greeted by the owner Pasquale (originally from Naples). We sat indoors due to the humid day, but the outdoor seating area was quaint looking and comfortable. We had some trouble deciding... More

This restaurant makes you feel like you are in Italy! The food is delicious and fresh! My husband and I took my dad there and he is very picky about his Italian food being that he is from Italy! He loved it! It is a byob which is awesome! It is clean and the staff is very friendly and welcoming!... More

Many restaurants serve Italian, but Vecchia is sincerely one of the best! The food is always fresh, flavorful and consistent. The atmosphere is cozy and you feel as if you are really in Italy. Pasquale's wife makes delicious, homemade desserts so make sure to save room for a piece of Tiramisu!!

Vecchia is byob located in the heart of Newtown, PA. This local Italian eatery serves up old school rustic Italian recipes mixed with new world flare. Beside from being a great chef, Pasquale (owner) is also warm and accommodating. Even if you don't know him, you will feel like you do. I particularly enjoy the Linguini and Vongole, the grilled...

I cannot say anything bad about this restaurant. Amazing food, staff, atmosphere! They take reservations which should definitely be taken advantage of because it is very popular. The prices are completely reasonable and I love that it's a BYOB. When the weather is nice, it is great to take advantage of the lovely outdoor courtyard to have a perfect meal... More

Even if you think you know Italian food, think again! I am a super picky eater who adds or subtracts from most meals but, every meal here is made to order so nothing is ever a problem. Great for a date night or family celebrations. The prices are reasonable, the staff friendly and most important, this very clean establishment serves... More
