This restaurant has been there for decades, doing very well all along, famous for its great pizzas, pastas and other Italian dishes. It is well known and popular, for sure on weekends you need to make reservations as it is not very big. The selection and combinations of topping is great, all of the finest, including some special Autumn versions.... More

We visited Zurich last weekend and had dinner here on Saturday evening. 4 adults, 1 child - superb service, atmosphere and food! Staff were extremely friendly and made us all feel very welcome. Nothing was too much trouble and had a real family feel to the place. Great menu, no complainants at all - ideal for a family, but still... More

We dined at Scala our second night in Zurich and loved it so much we ate there our last night as well. Small, local, great food and service with on site owner who is 100% involved. Food was reasonable especially by Zurich standards, fresh nicely paced and fair wine prices. Service was excellent and many locals there. I would say... More

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. A really good option if you're in the neighborhood

We ventured down the road from our hotel on our last night and were in the mood for pizza. We chose Pizzeria Scala above the others in the neighborhood because the reviews were much better and were glad that we did. Our hotel made reservations and we were lucky because this is a very small restaurant and a very popular... More

Wow. First time I've been served that way in Switzerland (I'm Swiss). The boss and the waiters are adorable and so welcoming. The food was delicious and you get more food in your plate than in most places, and it's not more expensive. Really want to go back ! :)
