I often traveled to Italy, and for the second year I spend my vocation on resorts Abano Terme. This is a wonderful place for a relaxing and wellness holiday. My friend and I are very fond of wonderful Italian cuisine, especially seafood cooked by Italian chefs. La Scala restaurant we discovered last year and visited 5 times during10 days vacation...

We ate here twice in our short stay in Abano Terme and were fully satisfied. Portions were on the small side but well-cooked and interesting. The wine list is good and we found the wine waiter particularly helpful. Recommended.

Owners Diego Farisato and Linda Ndou have mastered the combination of top, fresh fish and seafood paired with amazing wines in a wonderfully elegant, yet comfortable as well as family-friendly, split-level setting. I had the pleasure of two wonderful dinners and two amazing lunches, which included a fantastic whole sea bass, grilled vegetables, small, whole squid, fresh salmon, cheese and... More

Hello everyone, We came to the restaurant due to the good reviews on tripadvisor. The goal was to avoid a pizzeria for once. We arrived on 8 oclock and we got the luck to get a table without reservation (we saw in two hours about ten persons being refused because of the lack of place). I imagine this restaurant is...

The reason I stayed in Abano Terme wasn't a typical one. I'm leaving tomorrow and I haven't used the thermal baths though I have stayed in a five stars hotel with all the right facilities to do so. I needed a good hotel near Padova for my cooking classes. My only day off for from the classes was today, so... More

I returned to Abano Terme last week as part of my annual Christmas tour of Central Europe and was amazed again at Restaurant La Scala by the unbelievable freshness and quality of their seafood. While in town for three days, I ate at La Scala for both lunch and dinner and enjoyed delicious raw shrimp, baby clams casino, grilled shrimp,... More

LaScala is a refreshing alternative to heavy pasta and pizza. The seafood is delectable and prepared with attention to quality and natural flavors. I will return everytime I visit Abano! Please open a restaurant in San Diego!!!
