La Scaletta offers incredible value for money. 2 can eat there for 30 euro in total including water, wine and coffee. The service is very friendly and efficient. They provide tyical local cuisine and the restaurant is usually full of local people.

My Italian family uses to go to this restaurant a couple of times a year. You get a lot of food and it's really cheap, but do not expect a fancy restaurant! It's like eating at your grandma, same kind of food and same fanciness ;)

The setting and food is all Italian and great. Take your time, it's always busy and loud. Go with flow and have a wonderful meal.

Expect a local setting with Italian families, loud conversations, plastic table covers, plastic bread baskets and the most wonderful food! Don't expect a menu -let alone an English one- but choose a starter, a primi and a main course with the help of the serving staff and you will enjoy the most beautiful taste of Italian cuisine. The spaghetti is... More

I've eaten there sevearl times now (10 mins walk from my house) and so far I've never exceeded é20 for three courses, including plenty of decent house wine. The fresh lasagne is fantastic, and most of teh food really is very good. It helps if you can speak a bit of Italian - they read out the menu for each... More
