Restaurant with a view, fancy food and great wine. Also very pleasant staff. Getting reservation for Friday evening recommended. Of course a little more on pricey side but worth it for special occasion.

Great food, good wine. Nice service. No cocktails, but the view of the harbor/canal is very nice. Clean and tidy local. Perfect for business, family or romantic dinner.

A perfect location is matched by competence in the kitchen. Staff were generally attentive, but inexperience showed at times. This is a great venue for that long lingering summer lunch - book a table to be sure of getting the right spot.

The food is very good especially the pasta and deserts! The service is very careful and efficient! The restaurant is better than the current ranking on Tripadvisor

We celebrated my birthday at this marvellous Italien restaurant with a party of 32. Not only that everyone but everyone was full of praise, most of them said that they will definitly return. We had a 4 course menue and had absolutely nothing to complain....More

My number one in Hamburg is and stays La Mirabelle. My number 2, when 1 is closed (grande catastrophe!), would be La Vela. I came numerous times over the year, I always found the cuisine delicious, fresh, authentically Italian, the waiters all great Italian personalities....More

Went there for business dinner. The service was excellent, punctial and fast. I ate tuna as main dish which was very very good but a bit pricey. The restaurant also has a nice view of the docks and the wine list is quite decent.
