“Pizza and pasta is very good and the steaks are delicious.”
Review of Vecchia Italia

Vecchia Italia
Certificate of Excellence
Cuisines: Italian
Description: A very happy Italian Restaurant in the Peak District of Derbyshire. We have enjoyed, for around 25 years, the good food and the great energies that Giovani has put into this lovely resturant. In years gone by we used to eat at this fantabulous fun restaurant a couple of rimes a week. Now due to times of , no current income, we are only able to splash out on a very affordable meal about every other month. We are still treated as customer No1. as Many others also feel. This being such a good feel and good food restaurant, I find it very hard to believe that it hasn't been on this site before!!! I have only recently found this site and would highly recommend this restaurant as a very friendly, family and couples and singles and big parties restaurant. Very good food. Lots of personal service. All in all a very good night out.. Love this place dearly. xx

Hadn't been here for a long time but a friend gave us a voucher as a present so we went along to celebrate our wedding anniversary on a Wednesday evening. They do not open on Monday and Tuesday, see their Facebook page for details of opening times and the menu.
We were most warmly greeted and welcommed by the front of house staff and made to feel right at home. The food was very good and I would recommend it to anyone. We both had three courses, starters, sirlion steak in pepper sauce, salmon, Veccia Special Icecream Sundae, Chocolate Orange Cake, washed down with two large glasses of the house wine each, followed by coffee and liquers and the bill came to just over £80.
My steak was excellent, cooked just perfectly and was a really good piece of meat. All the main courses come with a choice of vegetables or salad included, you don't pay extra for them. We found the house wine was really nice and complimented the food well. It is available by the glass in small or large sizes at a very reasonable price. There is also a good choice of bottles on the wine list. The menu is divieded into the usual sections of starters, pasta, pizzas, main courses, fish dishes, desserts and wines. Pasta dishes can also be ordered in a smaller portion size for a starter. There are also daily specials to be found on the blackboard.
The service was very good, attentive without being over the top. The deccor is fresh but understated.
The Vechia offers a popular take-away service, often with special offers, which can be seen on the chalk-board outside.
Allthough we went on a quiet midweek evening, we saw several people we knew, and at weekends it can get very busy. It is a popular place for parties and large gatherings and can get quite lively.

I visited twice in a large group and really enjoyed my Pizza! Everyone else in the group seemed pleased with their food too. The service is good. Worth a visit!
