We found La Via by accident and were pleasantly surprised by our whole dining experience there. Decor was modern - quite simple but very effective, they had a lovely varied menu, and the standard of food was excellent. The young waiter, although he couldn't speak much English (our fault because we couldn't speak German!) was extremely helpful, and kept running... More

As the traffic on the highway was so heavy we decided to stop in Chur to have dinner. We jumped in at the La Vita and we were very positive surprised. The staff is super friendly and professional and the kitchen made an amazing job. The ambiente is ok.

Visited here when staying in Chur on the night of the carnival so very busy but we managed to pre-book a table earlier in the day. Lovely place but service seemed a bit pre-occupied with a large table so they were a bit slow. That said, we had a great evening and the food was very good, particularly the surprise... More

Definitely one of the great places to go in Chur, It's not open enough but the staff are experienced in fine food presentation and service. Single guys should stay away, the girls waitresses are captivating.

I loved this restaurant. I ate there twice during my stay in Chur. The first time I had a dish with three different servings of pasta. One had a pesto sauce, one a cream sauce, and the other a tomato sauce. It made for a coulourful presentation and was excellent. The second time I had a very nice pizza. It... More

4 of us ate here in June. The restaurant is bright and comfortable and not overcrowded. The menu was good but quite expensive for what you got - 4 main courses, one bottle of wine and water came to £150.

We went here for dinner and the only plus point was that it was the only restaurant close to our hotel still open for dinner. The service was nothing special- the waitress was surly. The food was also just ok- we had the rissotto and the pasta with tomato sauce. The pasta was good but way too spicy. The rissotto... More
