There are bigger, hotter restaurants in St. Gallen. Certainly there are restaurants that are more expensive. But somehow La Vigna is just right. It's cozy, charming, great food, outstanding wine list, warm but correct service, central location -- what a nice combination. I've been twice now, and both were great experiences.

It is a medium sized restaurant, with a good choice of dishes. Would I really like are the small dishes. So you can choose a lot of different tastes and have a very personalized dinner. Good quality food, balanced tastes, good advice from the staff, great wine list and enjoyable ambiance. Nice place for a relaxing dinner with friends

I'm Italian and I really enjoy with my wife and my daughter the food and the service. The prices in Switzerland are quite high, but your money in La Vigna are well used.

The food is fine, but too much expensive. Don't order a glass of wine: they will bring it in a big, empty glass

Nice small, cozy place with good people/food! The owner is very friendly and his suggestions are not the most expensive dishes on his menue as a lot of other places are.
