On Tuesday, I had lunch my friend, May, who I met at a volunteering event around this time last year. Since we are both done school (for the summer), we decided to have lunch..and just have a catch up session. We don’t see each other often through the year, as we have both been busy with school and life, in general.
May suggested that we have lunch at La Vecchia, an Italian restaurant by Yonge and Eglinton (she read reviews about this restaurant). We each ordered a main and shared a pizza.
This is the Pizza Vegertariana ($9); a pizza loaded with grilled vegetables. It was perfect for lunch on a sunny day.
The pizza came with a side salad. We also shared this.
I ordered Linguini Mare ($12). Pasta with seafood in a tomato sauce. Also perfect for a summer’s lunch.
May had Risotto Porcini (I believe) ($12). She let me try her risotto as I never ate it before. All I know is that it’s really hard to cook the perfect risotto. And I liked it. :]
I wish that the restaurant seating was more spacious. We were sat on the patio and there was really limited room to move around. The service was average, as I’m used to being treated not like an adult (which I am)..I didn’t expect much. We also had bread served before our food came, it was cold though and wrapped in a towel (I suppose to keep the bread warm)? Nevertheless, it was a new food experience.
