My wife booked this venue for my Birthday, it was amazing. We normal go to Bristol to get great food with a great atmosphere, however we thought we would give this a try. The food was fantastic, together with great service made for an outstanding evening. No need to go to Bristol any more for a great Italian. We will... More

Recommended by my guest who lives in Burnham and has been there many times. We were delighted with our choices; great red wine, grilled steak and chicken went down well, nicely served from open kitchen. Nothing pretentious but buzzy, clea, and good class cooking. Would go back.

A really great place to eat if you like a buzzing environment. Parking nearby makes it easy. All the staff are really pleasant. A proper pizza oven that makes superb pizza, obviously helped somewhat by the chef. All the dishes on the menu are excellent (and I've tried a lot of them over many visits). It's not a 'fast food...

We have eaten at La Vela a number of times when we visit family in the area. The food is always tops and I have had a variety of items from the menu. An added bonus is that one of our group requires gluten & dairy free; and this is always met with ease. WE WILL BE BACK !!!

Booked for a family 'do' for 14. Food was all very good, cooked to order and served at around the same time. Just a little pricey.

We called in the off chance of a table after 9.00pm. The staff were very helpful and found us a table even though the restaurant was packed. The atmosphere was great and the food really good, we will definitely return and highly recommend the restaurant.
