All the girls from our office went for a meal. We had the early bird offer, which is fabulous value for money. I had camembert for starters. This was a huge portion with two wedges of cheese, cranberry and salad. It was delicious. I had the Dolce Vita pizza for main course. Again this was a large portion, very good... More

Food, drinks and service were nothing to write home about just all mediocre really. Not that impressed

Went to Il Veccio with another couple for an evening out. It's a little dated in decor, cramped and noisy. If not choosing pizza the portions are a little on the small side. I had a pasta dish and was surprised there was so little of it. It's ok, just not my sort of place but everybody's different!

I've been to this restaurant a few times and always enjoyed it. The steaks are really good and I've also tried their pasta and pizzas which are both good. Nice Italian food with reasonable prices and friendly staff. The interior is very nice (much classier then when it was the navigation pub)

After moving to Heywood last year this has quickly become my favourite local restaurant. There is a little bar area with stools and reasonable priced drinks, and then a larger seating area with clean tables, white table cloths and comfy high backed chairs. The service is always good, prompt and friendly. I would recommend the sea food and the pasta-... More

I have recently starting dining here again and have been pleased with the offering in terms of food and atmosphere. The food is reasonably authentic, with the Earlybird menu being a real crowd-pleaser. I've already recommended the restaurant to friends and family. It seems to be very popular so I would suggest booking, especially for the Earlybird. My only criticism... More

I had stopped visiting this restaurant after the original owner sold it, as the standards dropped. I visited again on Tuesday after hearing good things since new owners took over. I was very pleased. The head waiter needs to impose himself a bit more but otherwise the service was very good. It has a family feel to it. The food... More
