“Good food well priced”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

You cannot fault this place if you want good food that is good value with friendly service. Not the most innovative menu but very good pizza and a good variety of seafood. Not much if you like meat but the island is predominantly a seafood paradise. We went twice in a a week so can't be bad!

“Arrive as a customer and leave as a friend”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

My husband and I dined at La Scaletta three evenings last week.
The staff were very helpful and friendly. The service was prompt and efficient and all our meals were hot and nicely presented.
Would certainly visit again on future trips.

“First night in Marciana”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

My wife ordered mixed seafood with pasta and I stuffed squid. The staff where all friendly and helpful. The food tasted great but mine was too cold but at the time I was too hungry to mind. The atmosphere was nice and the pizzas our table neighbours had looked delicious. We may be back for a pizza later.

“Cosy but overrated”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

Cosy interior and okay food for a fair price, but i would not stand in cue for hours to get inside. Make sure to make a reservation.
Food was okay, but kind of lost my feeling about the place when i was put in the same table with another single lady, who also had made an reservation. A bit rude in my opinion. Could have easily ended up in a disaster....
Very hectic atmosphere and stressed staff on a busy night.

“Not worth queuing for.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

Seeing the queues we on the previous evening we thought this restaurant might be worth visiting but in the end it was nothing special. We queued by the wall for a table and the staff quickly got through the queue and got us seated but the staff were very busy running around the place and it was difficult to order or ask for something. They looked to be under pressure and this in turn did not create a very good atmosphere to have a meal in. The food was pleasant.
