Success! Thanks for posting your review of La Vecchia Cucina. You’ve done the world some good today.


I went here for DineLA on a Saturday night. The space is a touch crowded, but all three courses were delicious. I had a chilled seafood salad, fish puttanesco, and gellato. It was nice to find some lighter items on the menu.

Great food, great value and even better service!

Chef/owner Mark Mollica and staff serve up some really delicious food! Awesome salads, pizza, pasta and more. Great atmosphere and a really friendly staff along with the delicious food will makes for a restaurant you'll want to go back to over and over! I can't stay away for more than a couple days! :)

I thought that I would share my recent dining experience with you...\r
In mid October 2010, a seemingly normal family celebration turned into a nightmare experience at the trendy Santa Monica, CA restaurant, La Vecchia Cucina. In the last 2 1/2 years, many restaurants have gone out of business due to a lack of customer demand as a result of the recession. In response, the restaurants that do remain are the ones that

Great Food

I've eaten here a few times. It's an upscale Italian restaurant with an elegant atmosphere. The food and wine is good, but you do pay for it. Nice for an occasion.

Excellent food but the service can be a little slow and the tables are really close together. Make a reservation because it gets really crowded

La Vecchia is a hidden treasure on the Westside. The Chef uses many of the top quality meats found at your fine dining restaurants but without the price. The filet specials are amazing; the meat is so tender it melts in your mouth. They have a nice selection of wines. There burrata and heirloom tomato special is delicious, not to mention the Pizza Calabrese. The pizza has chorizo, sausage, jalape?os, and onions. Ever... view more

I thought I was back in Tuscany!

After our trip to Italy last year I have had a difficult time finding authentic, delicious and reasonably priced Italian in my neck of the woods. I didn't know I had to truck clear to Santa Monica, but this place is worth the trip. We started with calamari and proscuitto and heirloom tomatoes and our palates were quite excited. Secondi was the clam and mussel linguini, while my partner had the osca buco. The osca buc... view more

best chicken in town...

We have been back here 4 times in the last few months. Every time we come to this restaurant, we eat yummy food and have great service. THERE IS A REASON THE PLACE IS ALWAYS FULL! The chicken stuffed with zucchini is AMAZING! Seriously. It is always perfectly cooked, and the side portions are huge. I have trouble ordering anything else (however, the pizza we had once was fabulous!). It is so refreshing to eat ... view more

Wonderful and inexpensive!

My boyfriend and I had a fantastic dinner here last Thursday. The place was very full and lively. The service was lovely. And the food was great! Calamari Fritti to start, then the boyfriend had what I think was called Fagiotti - small pasta pockets filled with cheese and I want to say walnuts, with a sauce of sun-dried tomatoes, and I had the Penna All'Arrabbiata (cooked perfectly al dente and the sauce was with... view more
