Daughter had booked a table for three here for my 79th Birthday. Immediately impressed by the warm welcoming atmosphere. This was our first visit and we took it as a good sign that the restaurant was nearly full. Greeted and shown to our table by friendly welcoming staff. Drink offered and served quickly while choosing from the extensive menu. Food... More

Such a great restaurant to be enjoyed with family, friends or for a romantic evening. A relaxed and friendly atmosphere that can be enjoyed at your own pace.

We were booked in for 6pm. Arrived, were stood at the door for a while longer than we should whilst conversation was going on between the staff. When... More

The food great, the menu is varied with all sorts of mainly Italian food. The noise level is a bit on the high side for my taste, but I will be going again. The staff are brilliant and the service is excellent.

Very nice menu. Staff are friendly and helpful. Food was lovely. We have been a few times and have always enjoyed it. Sometimes it can be quite busy and there is a bit of a wait for service, but from the restaurant's point of view they are probably glad to have it busy. Seems popular both in and out of... More

Our first visit. Although very busy we did not have to wait. Our drinks were served immediately and the food followed soon after. The portions were good and the meal was delicious. A very friendly and chearful manager helped us to have a splendid evening. Looking forward to next visit.

Seven of us dined at La Vela on Saturday 14th of January. All our meals were great especially the steaks. Starters and desserts were also delicious. Even the house wine was very good. Highly recommended!
