The place was packed with Italian families at Sunday lunchtime (booking essential). The hard-working waitress gave us good service despite the pressure. It's what I think of as Granny's Cooking: simple, unpretentious good-quality food. They cater mainly to locals so you will need some restaurant Italian. There's a fixed repertoire from which they offer a daily menu: we started with... More

My wife and I are vacationing in Sarzana in a nearby B&B and have dined at this Trattoria who evenings in a row. The food is sumptuous and authentic as the atmosphere. The price is extremely reasonable and we found both dining experiences quite enjoyable !

It's a nice location with a beautiful view. Just some minutes away from the city Centre of Sarzana. You only have the choice beteren Italian food. The service was nice, really fast and very tasteful.

Came back to La Scaletta full of fond memories. Ambience unchanged ( friendly, family style) food though is a disappointment. Had ravioli di carne al pesto ( ok but not to the past standard), tagliata ( slightly undercooked) and cotoletta (really poor, chewy). As a dessert we tried the ricotta cheese cake ( dough totally uncooked, generally bland and tasteless).

Una vera trattoria; semplice, senza fronzoli. Pietanze della tradizione, anche nella quantità. Buona qualità e genuinità. MOLTO ECONOMICO_ 5 persone, 1 tris primi+4 primi, 2 costate in 5+ 4 contorni, acqua, 2 bottiglie di vino, 1 dessert, 4 caffè: TOT 75€ English: A real "trattoria" (in Italian: "trattoria"= popular, cheap and friendly; forget words as elegance, service and choice), simple...

My Italian family uses to go to this restaurant a couple of times a year. You get a lot of food and it's really cheap, but do not expect a fancy restaurant! It's like eating at your grandma, same kind of food and same fanciness ;)

An interesting restaurant with lovely food. It's like walking into some ones very large dining room and is not the place for you if up you like a comfie chair and plush surrounds. The atmosphere is very good and service very efficient. They don't speak English but they gave us a menu with English translations. The food was lovely. Lasagne... More
