There is no doubt this is one of the best place if you want to eat italian in the area. The pasta's are truly delicious and like it always should be... like in Italy!

It is a medium sized restaurant, with a good choice of dishes. Would I really like are the small dishes. So you can choose a lot of different tastes and have a very personalized dinner. Good quality food, balanced tastes, good advice from the staff, great wine list and enjoyable ambiance. Nice place for a relaxing dinner with friends

Excellent food, good wine and good service. Ambient is small, so expect to squeeze a little. If you like Italian food, you will be very satisfied.

I'm Italian and I really enjoy with my wife and my daughter the food and the service. The prices in Switzerland are quite high, but your money in La Vigna are well used.

The food is fine, but too much expensive. Don't order a glass of wine: they will bring it in a big, empty glass

Nice small, cozy place with good people/food! The owner is very friendly and his suggestions are not the most expensive dishes on his menue as a lot of other places are.
