We ordered off the early bird menu which is fantastic value, check their website for details. They offer a large menu which includes being able to pick any pizza or pasta off... More

I've visited here twice recently with my husband. The food is fabulous, so fresh, tasty and there is lots of it! The restaurant itself is great for a couples meal out, friends or family. The atmosphere is great and waiting staff are so friendly and nothing appears to be any bother. Much better than any of the other local Italian... More

My wife and I were looking for an Italian restaurant for a nice meal without our kids. I am pleased we came to Il Vecchio. We were greeted politely on arrival, shown to our table, and shown the specials board directly. I chose the Funghi al Aglio to start with, my wife had chicken skewer. Both were delicious. My wife...

However, we have been a few times lately and are very happy to report that it's back to being great. Fab varied menu with lots of choices to satisfy the fussiest of diners. Everything we've tried so far has been delicious and... More

Tonight was totally different, the gentleman in charge was obviously in a bad mood and displayed it all night. We were left for a long time before being asked what we wanted to order!! When we did 2 of us ordered a garlic... More

I have ordered take away from here and also sat in. Both times, the food has been great with great service and lovely staff. It is always busy here, so I would recommend booking beforehand.
