About
La Vetta Ristorante Italiano is family owned and operated by Ascend, a local company that currently manages The Horsemen Lodge steakhouse and the Northern Pines restaurant. La Vetta is located in historic downtown Flagstaff. The interior is beautifully decorated with modern decor, colors that offer a relaxing and comforting dining experience. The art displayed on the walls are original canvas paintings created exclusively for the restaurant depicting Italian inspired scenes. We serve traditional Italian food with a modern twist. Lunch and dinner menus include our delicious take on Osso Buco, Fiorentina steak, Arancini De Riso, fresh hand-stuffed Lobster Ravioli, and our scratch-made Lasagna.
