“Truly splendid Italian cuisine”
Reviewed 12 August 2011

If you want true italian food which is reasonably priced, freshly made and served by the most attentive and friendly staff, this is it.

The food was amazing - in fact, better than amazing. I'm not surprised it was busy because this restaurant really is a joy to behold.

My advice - love Italian, go to La Vela!

“Amazing and excellent value!!”
Reviewed 7 August 2011

What an amazing restaurant!! The food really is wonderful and the staff are more than happy to chop the menu around as everything is prepared freshly!!
Prices are really very reasonable and the service is excellent!! Hazal was so friendly and happy to help, even recommending things which weren't on the menu!!
We stayed near Burnham for three nights and went to La Vela on our second night. Needless to say we then went back on our last night too!!

I have been going to this restaurant for some time,it was refurbished last winter and so we couldn't go there for a while but it was worth the wait,the food has always been good but the decor has made it a better dining experience,we always come away happy,thanks to all the staff.
