“Somewhere that actually considers vegetarians”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

A friendly atmosphere and lovely food. Vecchia Milano is a regular for us and it appears to have many regulars so the owners, staff and chef are clearly getting it right. There is a good choice of food for both carnivores and vegetarians (not common in Jersey). For the carnivores there is still an impressive plate of fresh veg to accompany their dish. Our favourites are the tiramisu and the bread and butter pudding. The owners and staff are genuinely friendly and care that you enjoy your time there, however, they don't get in your face and if you wish a quiet meal that's what you'll get. Definitely one to visit when in Jersey.

“A DELIGHTFUL ITALIAN RESTAURANT”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

I was in Jersey on business and wanted to eat some veal and I found the right place.This is a very professional restaurant with excellent staff, hands on owners and serving all my favourite dishes. The owners and head waiter made this solo diner feel very welcome and appreciated.

Having just returned from Sicily and Italy, I realise just how good the cooking and service was at Vecchia Milano and so have decided to submit a belated review.

“Another wonderful meal and visit!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

Back once again to Vecchia Milano, for a fantastic meal and good service. We visited at 5.30 on a Monday night, and were made welcome instantly even though we were slightly early. We were given a lovely window seat, and the food, ambience, service and value for money were all excellent!. The comprehensive menu is huge, not only the full vegetarian menu, but their al la carte menu, Tennerfest menu, AND the massive specials board - goodness knows how they keep it all going. If you are a Jersey resident, you will already know how good this restaurant is - if you are a tourist, all I can say is TRY IT OUT - you will NOT be disappointed. ( unless of course you have no comprehension of good authentic italian food and terrific value for money).

“Imaginative, great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

Judging by the reviews the food can be hit and miss here, but as far as we are concerned this is a great little restaurant. The service was great - friendly and attentive (loved the head waiter) and there was an extensive menu.

We intended to go for the Tennerfest menu, but when we saw the specials board we soon moved to that. We had scallops meuniere for starter - tasty although the sauce may have been a bit lemony for some tastes. I had monkfish in a saffron and wine sauce - very different but really enjoyable. My wide had kidneys and loved them. The Tiramisu desert was amazing - probably the best my wife and I have ever had.

All this plus a bottle of wine for £65 - great value.
Would definitely eat here again next time we're on Jersey.

“Warm welcome and generous vegetable servings.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

We enjoyed our first meal here so much that we returned despite a huge choice of other places offering wonderful food during the Tennerfest. We were made to feel like old friends as soon as we arrived and the choice from the Tennerfest menu was wonderful. Food was delicious and it was marvellous to have a generous serving of separate vegetables which were interstingly cooked. Best Tiramisu we have experienced.
