Il Vecchio Café—Italian Cuisine in a Family-Friendly Environment
• • •
Il Vecchio Cafe offers high-quality Italian dishes in an open-concept dining room perfect for large groups and families alike. Our menu features a delicious selection of homemade pastas, entrees, panini sandwiches, burgers, and salads in addition to pizzas, flatbreads, and calzones all made with natural, whole grain semolina flour in our stone deck, wood burning oven.
Accompanying our standard menu, Il Vecchio Cafe also offers family-style and gluten-free dining options. The Calandra family has always emphasized the quality of ingredients used so the olive oil we cook with is from our grove in Italy, the chicken we use is free range, our pasta and pizza dough is handmade daily from whole grain ingredients, and our sauces are made on premises and available for purchase at Calandra’s Italian Village.
Adjacent to Il Vecchio Café is La Taverna Bar and Lounge, which is the perfect atmosphere for everything from a working lunch to fun night out. Learn more about it here!
