“Amazing every time.”
Reviewed 11 March 2014 via mobile

My favourite restaurant to always go back to in Perth. Service is always prompt and friendly and the wait for the food is never long at al whether it is a table of ten or a table of two. Food is always amazing and the price is even better.

“' A Perfect Restaurant'”
Reviewed 9 March 2014

We have been going to La Vela for a long time and the Fare and Service is absolutely brilliant. Even when busy, the service and food quality does not drop away. We had Vienna Schnitzel, Scallopini and pasta dishes, all cooked to perfection and very tasty. Please try the Sticky Date pudding with butterscotch sauce and ice cream. Heaven and Heaven!! Take-away is available. The service team are very obliging and smiles all over. The La Vela Restaurant is a must. You will not be disappointed. We enjoyed the ambience and will definitely return, sooner than later. Your reviewer, Alan Scott, Kingsley, W.A.

“A lively night”
Reviewed 14 February 2014

We looked for a few places to try in Scarborough and settled on this, mainly from the reviews and were not disappointed. A nice vibe with good numbers all enjoying their meals, we ordered the shared Italian sausage with antipasti and a great choice, very tasty and good sized. What did surprise us was the complimentary Rice and chilli balls and they were scrumptious, just one each but really nice, I would have them as a starter any time.
I had the Saltimbocca and it was perfect and she had the Beef Parmigiano, also great and for desert I had the Sticky Date Pudding and I think one of the best I have had, very light and a lovely sauce, and she had the White Chocolate Pannacotta, which was also a great choice.
They were licences or BYO wine and as it was my birthday we took a nice Penfolds 389 from the cellar, corkage very reasonable, and a great night out indeed, thanks M.
Maybe we will try again for her birthday in May!!

“As Italian as AFL”
Reviewed 23 January 2014 via mobile

Clearly wanna-be Italian food made by Australians for Australians.
The saltimbocca were covered in a sweet chocolate-tasting sauce. According to the waiter due to the Marsala sauce...
Barramundi was tasteless.
Lasagna was quite tasty, though and the portion very generous.
Mains around $30-$35, not worth it.

“very good Italian”
Reviewed 18 December 2013

a little way up from the beach but well worth the visit. Portions are huge so would suggest starter size dishes for main. Very good spag bolognese
