“Italian and more”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 13, 2013

La Candela is located at the West end of the village. We went there minimum two time during every weeks we spent the last years and for sure we went there this year too.

We are interested to the offers of the menu, we find Italian food but also many other things to satisfied everyone and we appreciate the quality and the service.

Unfortunately, these year we were disappointed, meat was not well cooked, pizza's were at the limit with taste, ... so we forgot to take a dessert. Service was also not on the top, we had the impression that they are not here for us but to make money.

We will take an other chance, but ...

La Candela don't make any reservation. During the season, it's better to arrive before 7:00, after you have to face to a queue or to take a seat at the bar while you will be waiting for your table.

“Top Italian!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2012

La Candela is attached to the Hotel Victoria at the West end of the village. This was the best place we ate during our visit to Ischgl this year, and the only restaurant we considered worthy of a return visit.

The menu is a little more varied than the average Italian, and none of our party found anything to criticise. We are clearly not alone however, as a queue forms for tables after 7:00PM in high season, and from then on, the place is full till late. Clearly a good sign, when there are plenty of other restaurants in Ischgl with availability.

Service was also well above average, with very pleasant and attentive waiters rushing around.

La Candela does not take table bookings, except for hotel guests. So either show up before 7:00 to grab a table, or take a seat at the bar area and sample some very nice Italian wines, while you wait for your table.
