We were recommended this restaurant by a friend and it didn't disappoint. My husband and I took our 5 year old son. They offered kids meals which included a drink and icecream with their meal for $14.95. They gave him pencils and paper for drawing on and even gave him his juice with a straw poked through the lid so... More

We have been regular customers for 25 + years. Our favourite dish was the Polla Al A Vella. It WAS a delicious half a chicken seasoned with fresh garlic and marinated in a wonderful salty vinegary sauce then cooked to perfection until the skin was crispy and served on a sizzle hot plate with plenty of the sauce. Apparently some... More

Lovely restaurant with fantastic staff . I had the tortellini and it was great, a little oily but nice. My wife had the seafood marinara and came hot and delicious . We didn't wait long for the food and the table service was great. Will be back 😃

Family run Italian restaurant where we had a beautiful meal (probably ate a bit too much as we ordered 3 courses!!). Food was excellent and owners and staff were really friendly. Would definitely go back if in Scarborough again.

We had been eating at La Vela for many years back in the 2000's and have just returned and wondered whether La Vela had changed. luckily, no, it is still good old fashioned Italian cooking at its best, especially the Gnocchi Portofino. Will probably be back again sometime.

I have eaten here a couple of times. Was there again last week (Oct 2016) and it was a very enjoyable meal. The cuisine seems to be very authentic Italian food which I quite liked. The chicken parma came with spaghetti bolognese which I don't think is quite my desired mixture on a plate, but the food was spectacular. Without... More

My husband and I visited for dinner on a Saturday night at 6.30pm. The food was delicious and reasonably priced, service was good and the staff were very friendly. The only problem was that it was extremely noisy. There were a number of large groups and we could not hear each other across our table. We left prior to having... More
