    The food and service were lovely. The only set back was that our table was beside a group of what I assume were colleagues who had two tables. One for food and the other for sitting to eat. However because the music from the festival was loud they stood to eat and chat. This meant that they stood very close to our table and directly behind the chairs of my party of friends. It would have been preferable if they had a table to be seated like the rest of the diners. Just an observation. The music was very loud and even we struggled to hear our conversations. Still had a good evening though

    We had a table for 2 on a Jazz at The Pantiles evening. It was very busy and very noisy, but the atmosphere was great. The food was good, though the menu choices were limited. La Casa Vecchia is a long was from the stage so it was hard to see what was going on, but the speakers made sure you could hear everything. We had a fun evening.

    It was OK. Just ok. 2 of us had the mixed paella which was very nice. 1 had the sword fish which was quite raw - I let the waitress know and she said she'd tell the chef.... Also only chocolate sprinkles on 2 out of the 3 cappuchinos we had. Pleasant enough staff. Overall quite average

    Lovely lunch with 2 friends. Sat outside as a sunny day really nice to sit and watch people going by. A very nice menu with no sign of any house burger or fish and chips ! which seems to be the staple for majority of places these days. The menu has great choice Pasta, pizza, fish, meat and paellas! and also tapas style starters. The food was fresh and really delicious. We will definitely be booking to go again

    Attentive staff, very welcoming and the food was delicious, very fresh and well cooked! Portion sizes were perfect! Unfortunately it was a little empty and so the atmosphere was quiet, it would have been a perfect evening had it been a bit busier! We will come back again though as it was so lovely, thank you!
