We were looking for a casual restaurant and found it in La Scala. We shared a delicious thin crusted pizza and a main salad. It was so good that we went back the next night for just salad. If you are travelling as a family, there is definitely something here for everyone. We felt full and satisfied. As for the... More

Rule 1, make your customers feel welcome. On our arrival the matre D grumpily told us the table we'd chosen was for four and moved us for another. Understandable, but could have been handled better. We were given our menus and waited... and waited... while other customers perhaps regular locals' orders were taken and served their food. Finally we were... More

We are italian and so we are demanding about the pasta and pizza. The food is good but not a traditional italian (the recipes are modified according to the foreign taste). The waiters are really fast and friendly.

We visited on a sunny day. The restaurant was busy even at just after twelve. Service was good as was the food. We had pizza and pasta. Reasonable price too.

I'm going to say that I'm glad we ignored our initial impression based upon the young woman in casual clothing who was setting up the tables outside (we felt she was rude, and a couple other customers stalked off after speaking to her). However, once inside the restaurant, our uniformed waitress and waiter were nice and pleasant. My mother's pasta... More

There is quite a choice of Italian restaurants in Amboise mostly pizzerias. We chose this one because the menu looked a bit more interesting. We walked in off the street and there was no one around to greet us so we sat down at a table for 4 people although we were only 2 people. A waiter appeared and said... More
