Excellent Williams, perfectly cooked angus, warm ambient, rustical style (feels like a piece of Italy), very nice personnel... what's more to say :)

Great place and busy on saturday evening. We called only 2 hours before we wanted to eat there. Our wish to get our table in the main room they organized. We ordered carpaccio polipo(Tintenfisch) and fish in salt backed. So delicious it was a dream. We will recommend this place and also will be back soon.

Really delicious dishes here. We had the Double Angus beef filet tenderloin in a sea salt crust on a bed of hay, with a Merlot sauce. Fabulous! Nicely decorated.

Scenically located at the lake, all authentic people serving, food and wine as expected flawless and an experience for the tastes. And finally the owner takes out the guitar and plays a few tunes - cannot be any better! Awesome!

Lovely restaurant even late September it was still warm enough to eat outside. Lovely creamy mozzarella to start with a great Spaghetti Vingole and to finish a good Tiramisu. Great friendly service. Certainly will return when staying in the area again

We enjoyed a nice lunch in the terrace of La Scala and would recommended as excellent Italian cuisine option. We had a burrata affumicata with Culatello, original take on this classic dish. The sea bream we ordered was perfectly cooked and the porcini and veggies with it really fresh. Only issue was that service, even if very friendly, a bit... More

Tried to have a light lunch at la Scala before our flight home. Service was very slow with not many people in the Restaurant.

We had a lovely lunch at La Scala. The food was very nice and the service was excellent. Would highly recommend a visit to this place but you may need to reserve a table.
