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.

had an early meal 6.30pm and very soon afterwards the place was packed which is a good sign of how popular this place is. Need to go earlier if you want quiet

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.

The staff were very friendly and welcoming and the food was great, Everyone enjoyed their meal. The food was attractively presented, nice and hot, and reasonably priced, and there was lots to choose from. Our only problem was when we were given the bill all the meals weren't ours! The was very quickly and pleasantly rectified but it shouldn't happen.... More

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

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

La Vela has very nice food; however because of the noise level, I can never convince my husband to go there. Never have we been there when it wasn't too noisy to talk, and it seems the whole place gets louder and louder as people elevate their voices to be heard. Loud restaurants seem to be standard in Perth; however... More

Came here with family and the staff as usual were very friendly. The food was great and was quick coming out...only let down was the oysters were very small but thats not their fault. The mains were a decent size and pasta was amazing.
