Friends from Harrisburg were visiting.
Mario is the best, such fantastic service. Food is always prepared to perfection.
They had 2 employees running the front of house, & they did great considering it’s just the 2 of them! I think they’re both Italian, which added value. It is BYOB, which means they don’t sell any alcohol. Make sure to pick up wine from Fred’s Liquor down the street first! The Arugula Salad was excellent and large enough for my husband & I to share. I tried the salmon, which was really good. I especially loved the sundries tomatoes in it. My husband had the Bolonese, and that was also very good. The prices are high for Italian, but seem to be the going price for meals in Avalon. I would stop by again!
We like to order appetizers and when they r served we Oder dinner they would not allow us to do that. They say it will be timed right but so many times my dinner is cold because it sat in the kitchen till we finished appetizers. I did not get that warm welcome felling from when we walked in
Waiter very nice. Food ok. Nothing note worthy. Salads tasty and very large. Bread not fresh. Unfortunately even though restaurant had less people, we were last seating, certainly our table and the table next to us was very chatty, so one has to start talking louder to here over the other table and vice versa. Reservations were easy to make on open table.
Given the staffing issues, two servers handling front podium and restaurant it was very smooth. Some
Wait time, but we were seated promptly and finished up in 1:30 min. Food was excellent as always. I don’t like that they have eliminated the angel hair pasta on many dishes when it use to be included. Our last trip there was a service/staffing disaster so it’s good to see they have learned to operate with short staff and/or not overbook
Understaffed from a hostess perspective, but the thin wait staff did an excellent job managing all of the tables and food for everyone in the restaurant. Food was excellent, and the service was great.
Food is amazing, be patient, only 2 servers and no hostess. Go with a relaxed vibe, wait and enjoy a great meal!
Food was delicious and service timely and friendly.
Great experience on a Tuesday night. Will be back.
Very good food. Quite busy and I think they were short-staffed but they did pretty well keeping up.
Extremely Noisy!!! Understaffed. Meals served with large amounts of brown gravy smothering the flavor of the dish. Have eaten there several times hoping it would get better but no improvement over the past years. The sister restaurants are much better. Our last visit
The special wasn't worth the price. Everything else was pretty good.
We had an incredible meal here last night, and have enjoyed this restaurant several times over the past two years. Although stuffed into a tiny room in an unassuming hotel, the food itself would bring you back. But in the face of a staff shortage, the 3 servers/hosts/bussers/takeout clerks (and I’m suspicious also helping in the kitchen) managed to entertain the entire dining room, briskly take our order, and deliver with perfect timing an expertly prepared meal.
I’ve never seen servers work so hard in my life ! They were amazing. The food was incredible too. We had chicken parm & the special , seafood stuffed raviolis topped with lump crab meat. So delicious & great portions.
Our waiter, Mario is the best. Food is always very good. We dine there often!
Wonderful service…food was tasty and hot!
the food was excellent with generous portions and superior service,
Excellent food and service! This little restaurant knows how to perfectly accommodate a big party. It was 7 of us on Sunday night and enjoyed everything. We tried several appetizers and all of us got different entrees and enjoyed it. Our waiter Mike made the night pleasant being prompt and funny with all the members of the table. Will definitely be back!
Small room, too many large parties and far too much noise. Food was very good.
Excellent food and service in this little restaurant in the shore.
We had a wonderful meal with exemplary service. All of the dinners served were enjoyed by our party of 6. The appetizers were terrific! The calamari was tender and lightly breaded. We also enjoyed the buratta with peaches, plums, arugula and balsamic. The service was amazing...no wait for our reservations. We will definitely return in the future.
The wait staff was phenomenal!
We visited here for the first time (been to several of the sister restaurants) to celebrate our niece's 21st birthday. The location is a little difficult to find, right within the condo building. It's not widely publicized but they are a BYOB. Very nice welcome by the hostess and then great job by the server welcoming us and reviewing the evening's specials. The mussels and clams was an excellent appetizer, great for sopping with bread! Everyone enjoyed their pasta dishes, seafood special and the branzino was very tender and flavorful.
This was easily one of the top restaurants I've ever been to and so glad I found it on Open Table. I ordered the artichokes appetizer and could have definitely had that just for dinner, it was so good. I decided to be boring and ordered the chicken parm for dinner and OMG it may have been the best ever. So tender and tasty and the sauce full-on flavor. I can't wait to get back!!
Mike, CJ and Mario provided excellent customer service. The chef prepared scrumptious dishes. Enjoyable evening!
Good food prompt service
Fast service and good food
I don't usually write reviews for anything, but this restaurant has some of the best food I've ever had. Every single person in our group cleared every plate put in front of them. We went early so it was a bit less crowded, but the whole place filled up by the time we were done. 10/10 would eat there again
Very good meal. Food was beautifully presented. Worth returning.
Excellent dinner. 7 guests and everyone ordered different entrees and enjoyed them. Service was excellent. Will definitely visit again.
Our experience was incredible. The food was delicious and the service was impeccable. We cannot wait to return.
We has to leave before we even sat down. We have our name and reservation time. No response to when we would be seated. Waited in hot lobby for twenty minutes with no acknowledgment that we were there and waiting.
Just an awful experience.
This is a gem of Avalon, I always enjoy eating La Vecchia Fontana. Due to the employment issues this year the service was struggling to provide exemplary care but the food is still amazing! We are hopeful they will get back to full capacity in the coming months.
Food was delicious! I had the pasta special. I think they were short staffed the night we went. The hostess was busing the tables. You can tell the servers were overwhelmed. Our experience, though, was good.
Chicken in the truffle sauce omgggg 🤤
Everything was fine. Service almost too good as we felt rushed. Our meals were good quality. Better options in Avalon if you’re looking for an excellent meal, party ambience or romantic evening.
Excellent food and service but we didn’t notice it was BYOB
We absolutely love La Vecchia! Highly recommended.
Food is always good but last night wasn’t the best. Ambiance sure could use a little more.
