The place is small, it is convenient to make a reservation. Small but nice meals. I took a spaghetti carbonara.. very good.. the pasta is homemade and "trafilata" means you will get a pasta "al dente". My wife took a "tagliatelle" with zucchini and dry...More

La Pasta could be any average pasta joint in any average town with average service, anywhere in the world... and by average I mean basic, standard, typical, non-distinct, unassuming noodles and sauce. I should clarify though that when I say average service I really mean...More

The service is very attentive and the seating outside is very pleasant. If you're looking for a basic pasta dish this is a good place to go.

I was worried about poor service from other reviews but my dinner and service was great. If you want a quick meal, there is a Burger King nearby at the train station.More

I went there with my wife for dinner and found the food good, not great but the staff appalling. They will ignore you, make you wait for everything and be simply, well... Not friendly. Oh... And have I mentioned the prices? Come on... It's Pasta!

We ordered the homemade Rigatoni. It was scrumptious, the portion sizes were big and there was a nice ambience to the place. It was good value for money. The staff were very friendly and attentive. We were charged CHF 2 for a jug of tap...More

Marco and his staff were amazing hosts for their restaurant. I had the beef carpaccio starter and some lovely homemade spaghetti with olive oil and tomatoes and red chilies. Wine was excellent too! I highly recommend this place!

Questions & Answers
As part of the TA policy on management responses to reviews, (..Be polite and professional and ensure that your response meets our guidelines). I will state upfront that I have no affiliation with La Pasta management or the reviewer comments by ibyl312 that were posted at the end of December 2016. The reply from the management (Mr. Enzo V) to this review was totally out of line, unprofessional and disrespectful to this customers review regardless of his comments. I had thought about visiting your restaurant as it is one of the most highly rated restaurants in the city, but after this management response and personal attack of a customer, at current, I don't think I would consider dining at this business unless this owner/manager retracts his remarks, stops with the insults and apologizes to the reviewer for his personal attack, belittling and insulting comments about this customer, again regardless of the situation. I have also reviewed your remarks to negative reviews concerning your business since 2013 and I would have to say you have consistently not conducted yourself and your comments in a professional manner to those with not such a positive view of your restaurant. We must all stay as professional as possible. Its okay to state the customer may be incorrect in their perception, but insulting customers is never good for any business. An abbreviated guideline violation of the management’s response has also been forwarded to TripAdvisor for review.
