il Vecchio is poised to debut their hotly anticipated lunch service on Monday, January 21.

The menu is chef’s choice and will include a green salad and choice of two pasta dishes, all served family style at the table. Vegetarian options will be available, but alas, the restaurant cannot accommodate vegan or gluten-free diners for lunch.

Lunch at il Vecchio highlights pasta, including spaghetti al pesto on Wednesdays.

The menu will change day to day—polenta on Tuesdays, seafood spaghetti on Fridays. I’m already eyeing a Monday lunch of penne pasta with Molinari sausage or risotto Milanese on Wednesdays. Check out the full menu below the fold.

At just $9 per person, Pranzo di Lavoro is sure to be popular. And bring along the kids too—children under ten are can join in the fun for just $6.
