Our Story

In early 2019, three brothers saw opportunity in a struggling Irving Park Italian restaurant that had recently been put up for sale. Equipped with two decades of cooking in Italian kitchens, they knew the restaurant's great potential.


After giving the place a new name, a new look, and a new menu, in a short time La Vecchia Trattoria has become a favorite among local pizza and sandwich enthusiasts alike!
