Delightful AUTHENTIC Italian, we never miss it. Pizza and Pasta are superb. The Owner and chef made us feel very welcome, checking on us often and personally escorting us out upon our departure. We'll be back again next year!

For a city that's not known for its food, Scala was a delicious surprise. We shared an appetizer of a capresi salad (tasty) a pizza (very good) and the lasagna (out of this world). It was crowded with locals and was relatively inexpensive fur Zurich. A really good option if you're in the neighborhood

We ventured down the road from our hotel on our last night and were in the mood for pizza. We chose Pizzeria Scala above the others in the neighborhood because the reviews were much better and were glad that we did. Our hotel made reservations and we were lucky because this is a very small restaurant and a very popular... More

Wow. First time I've been served that way in Switzerland (I'm Swiss). The boss and the waiters are adorable and so welcoming. The food was delicious and you get more food in your plate than in most places, and it's not more expensive. Really want to go back ! :)

They have delicious pizza. Crumb is thin and very tasty. Toppings are also very good quality. The staff is very friendly. I strongly recommend this place.

This is the best Pizza i have ever had anywhere. Its prepared fresh, is oval and tastes exquisite. The Restaurant is quite small and usually packed so make sure to reserve your table. Try their carpaccio Pizza - its the best i've had!

This is our #1 place if we're up for having pizza, but it's being said that they also provide other foods. It's a good place of you want to meet your neighbors, as many people (like us) from the neighborhood regularly come here. Sometimes, it can be difficult to get at table without reservation and it can become quite loud... More
