La Vecchia Cucina in Santa Monica. Anyone Been?

I searched this Board, but there is almost nothing about La Vecchia Cucina in Santa Monica.
Has anyone been? Is it any good? I looked at the menu online and it looked fairly pedestrian. Any suggestions on what to order?
I haven't been there for a few years, but they've been around for what feels like forever. They make pretty standard, solid Italian food. I remember really liking their steak pizziola, but it's been a while, so take that recommendation at your own risk.
Um, I went. The food was edible (how is that for damming with faint praise?) I understand now why we don't see much on Chowhound about this place. Food passable. Very middle brow. Took 45 minutes between appetizers and entrees. Maybe okay for a drink. Would not voluntarily return to eat.
I wouldn't bother with La Vecchia (even though friends have dragged me there a couple of times). For Italian on Main St., try Via Veneto or Ado and just off the Venice boardwalk, try Piccolo.
