The food and service is the best you can get!

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... read more

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 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.

From our hotel we would walk there. The food is soooooooo yummy! Had one of the best wines, I totally forgot the name :( Pizza was great, as you would expect. Great restaurant for a nice dinner with friends. Definitely would recommend.

I have been in Scala already twice and for sure I will be there many more times for dinner. Their pizza is one of the best in Zürich. My favorite one is Pizza Pazza with ham, rucola and parmesan. The Bruschetta are good starters, then one of their famous pizza and tiramisu for desert. This is at least my recommendation.... More

I am quite often here since the Pizzas are great. but also the Pasta is well prepared.What else to say for Zürich its average price but good value in comparison with some others. The Restaurant is located in a residential are but easy to access from everywhere with public transport. I just love it!

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.
