This is the best Pizza i have ever had anywhere. Its prepared fresh, is oval and tastes exquisite. The Restaurant is quite small and usually packed so make sure to reserve your table. Try their carpaccio Pizza - its the best i've had!

This is our #1 place if we're up for having pizza, but it's being said that they also provide other foods. It's a good place of you want to meet your neighbors, as many people (like us) from the neighborhood regularly come here. Sometimes, it can be difficult to get at table without reservation and it can become quite loud... More

Scala is in the neighborhood. (one of four Italian restaurants in close proximity). It's far and away the best quality for Italian food. Wonderful service. I stray from the pizza occasionally and try one of the pasta dishes and they are great. But it's a tough choice to skip the pies! Wife had a Calzone tonight and I had a... More

The short and sweet of it is that no matter what you get on the menu you'll probably love it. And it's not pricey at all compared to other places. Definitely worth the stop even if for just pizza.

Two average pizzas, one bruschetta and two soft drinks will set you back over 50 pounds sterling. It is very difficult finding reasonably priced food in Zurich.

We shared a pizza & the spaghetti dinner. The quality and presentation were excellent. The atmosphere and the level of friendly service is top of the line. As we only had an evening in Zurich, we didn't have reservations, so we went right at 5:30 and they sat us and feed us while the staff had their dinner at the... More

We have eaten only once in this place and we quite liked it although we found it a bit too expensive for our expectations (we paid around 35 CHF/person for a pizza and a beer).

When we first visited Scala we were wondering why is it so popular that you best get a reservation. After the meal, we realised that we've had one of our best meals in an Italian restaurant, with very good pizza, friendly waiters and excellent service.
