We started our meal with superb antipasti beautifully presented and left us wanting more to eat. The prawns were presented on a very tasty vegetable sauté which were delicious and polpetti also lovely. Two pastas dishes were then chosen of extremely high quality and excellent presentation. Pasta Genovese and a tortelli filled with ossobucco meat. Not only was the food... More

I like this restaurant very much, I love the food their. The selection of the food and wine is great and the quality very good. A reservation is most often very necessary at the weekend at least two weeks in advanced.

There is no doubt this is one of the best place if you want to eat italian in the area. The pasta's are truly delicious and like it always should be... like in Italy! The wine selection is very good but I'm always sad to see that even such a place that presents itself like a wine bar brings you... More

There are bigger, hotter restaurants in St. Gallen. Certainly there are restaurants that are more expensive. But somehow La Vigna is just right. It's cozy, charming, great food, outstanding wine list, warm but correct service, central location -- what a nice combination. I've been twice now, and both were great experiences. Last time I had a local chicken dish that... More

It is a medium sized restaurant, with a good choice of dishes. Would I really like are the small dishes. So you can choose a lot of different tastes and have a very personalized dinner. Good quality food, balanced tastes, good advice from the staff, great wine list and enjoyable ambiance. Nice place for a relaxing dinner with friends

Excellent food, good wine and good service. Ambient is small, so expect to squeeze a little. If you like Italian food, you will be very satisfied.

I'm Italian and I really enjoy with my wife and my daughter the food and the service. The prices in Switzerland are quite high, but your money in La Vigna are well used.

The food is fine, but too much expensive. Don't order a glass of wine: they will bring it in a big, empty glass

Nice small, cozy place with good people/food! The owner is very friendly and his suggestions are not the most expensive dishes on his menue as a lot of other places are.
