I come here every other month, so this is obviously a favourite place. Went again last week and had another great meal. The boss is super friendly, the staff is very welcoming, the place is always buzzing (had to wait 5min for a table... but just dropped in, so OK). The food is excellent, the pizzas are among the best... More

Over from England to visit family and found a perfect venue for a family night out, to include a well-behaved 3-year old. Food really good and was served quickly by a friendly waitress. Pricey by British standards but value was par for the course in Zurich.

Well, outstanding. Freshly made on the premises in an impeccably clean and spotless kitchen, the chefs turn out an extensive tasty menu and the house red also... More

The receptionist at our hotel suggested that this was a good place for a meal fairly close to the hotel. She was dead right. The place was humming at 8pm on a Saturday night even though the town was quiet. The manager managed to squeeze us even even though they were full, with only a couple of reserved tables left....

The selection of wines is good as well and covering all major regions in Italy. The prizes are reasonable and worth the served quality. I will... More

After a long day of walking we decided to trust the many recommendations given by colleagues for la scala. Didn`t regret it... very nice and relaxed atmosphere! Friendly staff... The bruschetta, pizza "pazza" and the salmon in cream sauce with pappardelle were great!! When in Zurich a good place to have a bite...
