We loved this place and felt like we had stumbled on a gem. Food was amazing and very fresh, they even made my little boy pasta with no seafood and that too was delicious. Local wine was recommended and it was gorgeous. Don't really understand why this place has bad reviews as that definitely was not our experience

We went to this restaurant to celebrate my wife birthday. It's nice looking restaurant. Very nice and polite personal. For this class of restaurant food wasn't good enough - calamari wasn't soft because they were frozen, shrimps wasn't clean and bread looks like was 2 days old.

A drastic deterioration from last year. We arrived on a weekend when the restaurant was full and there was only one waiter. We waited over an hour for each lot. The soup arrived to an empty plate. The main courses arrived cold and tasteless. We brought back everything. We spent about 3 hours and we left hungry. When we asked... More

We enjoyed La Scala twice during our September 2014 visit to Abano Terme. The establishment is conveniently located on a side street in the pleasant pedestrian plaza. We ate on the small outdoor patio on both occasions, enjoying the airy and secluded feel. The highlight of the menu was the grilled shellfish platter, piled high with all manner of impeccably...

We ate here twice in our short stay in Abano Terme and were fully satisfied. Portions were on the small side but well-cooked and interesting. The wine list is good and we found the wine waiter particularly helpful. Recommended.

Owners Diego Farisato and Linda Ndou have mastered the combination of top, fresh fish and seafood paired with amazing wines in a wonderfully elegant, yet comfortable as well as family-friendly, split-level setting. I had the pleasure of two wonderful dinners and two amazing lunches, which included a fantastic whole sea bass, grilled vegetables, small, whole squid, fresh salmon, cheese and... More
