i remember myself climbing up these stairs at least once a week. the best moment was when my eagerly awaited bottle of wine arrived at the table! with it came some courses for the appropriate pairing. then suddenly, the time came for me to take a break. recently, i revisited “scala vinoteca”. it remains one of the most beautifully designed restaurants around. simple yet elegant materials join forces and create a cosy, contemporary ambiance. the small patio in front is still inviting and the numerous wine bottles up the wall really seductive.
one thing that has definitely changed is the menu. now you can enjoy garden, sea or earth flavors. have some fine bouillabaisse soup, an interesting freshly grilled calamari with artichokes and chorizo, a velvety langoustine risotto with morrill, a juicy sirloin black Angus steak and some divine pappardelle with pears and pecorino. trust me, this pasta dish alone can make it happen! along with your favorite bottle of wine of course.
finally have some airy lemon tart or some refined apple and caramel for the whole experience to end properly.
so go my friends, hurry up these stairs again and enjoy the new era.
