We went on a huge search to find this place as we were craving pizza but found that only the sister restaurant (SALA THAI) was open and was told by the staff at Sala Thai that this place closed over a year ago. Which is weird as it is still appearing quite high up on tripadvisor and people are still... More

I love the food, the ambiance and the service. The owner is also nice he checked every now and then to each table to make sure that you're okay. They also have a good masseur who does foot massage.

Great service and quaint setting! The only thing missing was a nice bottle of red wine. The ice cream was amazing. All the food was exceptional!

Continuing the success of the Sala Thai, Sala Italia is serving real Italian food cooked to order in an authentic style Italian Restaurant setting.

The cool modern interior is well lit and comfortably furnished.... More
