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....More
