For over 30 years, La Vecchia Cucina has been Santa Monica’s best neighborhood Italian restaurant. When new ownership took over in 2006, new life was breathed into this local favorite.
Combine our chef ’s world-class training with Sicilian recipes passed on from his mother and grandmother and the result is sublime. The entire La Vecchia Cucina team works to ensure the utmost quality, making every guest’s experience a memorable one.
The owners have worked to create the same sense of community that began years earlier around their family dinner table. Step into La Vecchia Cucina to find a gracious welcome, a warm and inviting atmosphere, and unparalleled service that will make you feel right at home.
