La Vela is the cheapest, best delivery you will find in the Upper West Side. The food is great, the delivery is fast and reliable, and the cost is as low as you will find anywhere ... incredible value. The only problem is that they should get a better system for taking deliveries ... you always have to shout your order over a lot of noise and they don't have a computer system that saves your address. Other than that, you can't go wrong.

I have been coming to La Vela for about 4 years and last night, as I considered a dinner out for the first time in a long time ($ is tight) I knew that of all places I wanted to support, it was La Vela. This is a neighborhood mainstay and a UWS gem. The food is solid and the service is my extended family. I have never had an ever slighly less than divine meal. If you walk in with a smile, you will leave with one. I hope that La Vela feels the love in these hard times. I will do my best (as its biggest fan) to do my part in keeping it open and thriving.

I recently moved to the UWS and was excited to try La Vela, as I had read many positive reviews. I was really looking forward to having a good, inexpensive Italian restaurant right around the corner. However, once I arrived at La Vela, the prices listed on their menu were much higher than those on their website. This was particularly true for their wine list. The food was alright, although not great. However, the misleading prices advertised by this restaurant left a bad taste in my mouth.

We often eat at La Vela. The food is always good, the wine great and reasonable, you can actually talk to people in your party and hear each other, when we go there we're treated like family and the delivery has been very reliable. Always a warm welcome. Very hard to find in this day and age.

Just got back from a 9 person b-day party, which was held on a Saturday. Great time, great service, great wine, great food and most of all great price. Party for 9 with wine and tip for under $300.00, can’t beat it with a stick. Best southern Italian foods on the UWS, will be back before the turn of the year.

Remains one of the best for fresh pasta and fast delivery. We order from 3 Italian places and La Vela is my favorite because, while it's the furthest away from us, it's the most flavorful. A little expensive.

They won't deliver for orders that are less than $15... problem is that many entrees are less than that, so they do this to make you order an appetizer also. They're also incredibly stingy when it comes to using credit cards.
