a great little place on the uws. I took a friend to this restaurant for a birthday celebration. The menu was quite comprehensive and the specials of the day added even more variety. The service was prompt, the wine selection was good, and the food was fantastic for the price! Overall I was highly impressed and plan to go back again soon!
The best Gnocci I've ever had. La Vela is one our favorite UWS locales. The service is efficient and friendly. Their homemade pasta is amazing, especially the gnocci with gorgonzolla. Completely impressed with them every time.
Great Find!. Great neighborhood place! Nice ambiance, great classic Italian dishes and a good value. They don't rush you out and you don't feel cramped - unlike a lot of the other small lower priced Italian restaurants on the UWS. I'll be back.
Editorial Review. Upper West Side Italian fare atop red-checkered tablecloths: from carpaccio and fresh pastas to veal scaloppine and grilled fish.
great food!!!. This was great food and at an excellent value!!! The service was fantastic and it was a real "homey" place to eat. I will definitely be coming back!!!
Comfortable Suroundings and Food. When my boyfriend and I want to treat ourselves, taking a break from cooking and from our diets, we head to La Vela. The friendly staff, beautifully decorated dining room and delicious food combine to make this an outstanding eating experience.
Always Great, Time and Again.... I have never once had any hint of any reason to not return again and again. Their food is fantastic, their drinks are generous, and their desserts....well if you have any room left over after their over-sized entrees, then you shouldn't pass them up. YUM!
