We eat here regularly and are never disappointed with the meals or service. Worth booking as it gets busy. Only comment from our visit last night was the slight stingy approach to lighting 😂😂

A local trattoria run by genuinely Italian people. Located slightly off the beaten track, up the hill, in a glorious Victorian spa building. Lots of tables outside and climbing frames for kids. Family friendly. We went on a Friday evening fairly early, around 7pm. The place was full. Atmosphere consequently good - tables of couples, large family celebratory parties. Service... More

Impressive setting in upper Bridge of Allan a lovely old building . In my opinion the menu tried a bit too hard to be fancy & was missing most of the traditional dishes you would expect from an Italian. The starters were way over priced , the food was ok but nothing special . Service wasn't great , we had... More

Visited here with friends for dinner, not our first visit, and hopefully many, many more visits to come. Food and atmosphere as always in our experience was delightful. I would highly recommend this beautiful restaurant as one of the very best Italian restaurants in the area. Generous portions of food served with a smile.

We had Sunday lunch here on 31 July. The carvery was absolutely brilliant with a slice of four different meats and lots of veg. The flavours were amazing. Service was excellent even although the place was completely full. Been here many times and never had a problem...definitely recommend!!

All the tables are laid out beautifully as you walk in, the waiters are very kind and considerate and the food is just beautiful originally I was a bit disappointed as I found out they don't make my favourite dish anymore but I asked and they made it especially for me anyway! I LOVED IT

While staying with our American and Australian families at the Coneyhill Lodge, we were recommended the Vecchia Bologna for a meal, it did not disappoint. The meal was very good, served in a very pleasant manner by very pleasant waiting staff.

My husband and I visited here on our last day in Scotland. We ordered a bottle of white wine and it was delicious. Really crisp and light. We decided to order light starters- caprese salad and smoked salmon- both arrived on dinner plates which were piled high with tasty food. For our mains my husband ordered seabass and he said...

Just returned home from our annual trip to Scotland a few weeks ago and already missing our visits to Vecchia! We started having the odd evening meal about 6 years ago but moved on to 6 times in 2 weeks this year. Food, service, location, you name it this restaurant has the best of them all. We only wish that... More
