We frequent this restaurant a couple of times a year mostly in summer. The food is great and well portioned , the free arancini balls are hot and delicious to start. There is a good wine selection. I totally recommend this restaurant.

We went to La Vela last night for my friend's 50th birthday celebration: The food was absolutely delicious-the arancini balls, garlic toast, tasting plates, my gnocchi with chorizo, my sister's chicken scallopini, my friends' calamari and other guests' choices. The serving sizes were excellent. The...More
