We've been 3 times now and the menu had improved even more on the last visit. Everything you might expect for main courses - meat dishes, including veal, and also a good selection of pasta, pizzas, risottos and salads. Can recommend the starter platters for sharing.

We ate here on our overnight stop to the Med. Having driven three hours in the UK and a further six in France we were drawn to La Scala with its array of tables outside. We waited for a table to become free rather than walk further into town. From memory there seemed to be just one waitress so we waited a while to order. We had four pizzas, a half carafe of table wine, four cokes and two ice creams which came to Euro 69. The pizzas were fairly bland so disappointing for the price.

The La Scala Restaurant in Bourges is an Italian restaurant in the Place Planchat at the northern end of Rue Moyenne, the main road running through the town centre. It's a marvellous restaurant, a rare hybrid of student atmosphere and high cuisine. The first clue is from the outside when you realise looking in that there are loads of people there; and it turns out that they're not there by accident. The restaurant's reputation has clearly spread wide.

The décor of the place in interesting and atmospheric. The furnishings are stylish. Some of the operation of the restaurant surrounds you, so you can see the staff work. The food served is original, super-tasty and there's a considerable choice. We started with a a board of unusual dips which came with a basket of mixed mini- toasts. Main courses were so good you wanted to climb inside. The sweets were intricate and exquisite. The table wine was … well, you get the point. The cuisine here is a rare treat.

Possibly the best feature of the restaurant is the staff. They were friendly and fun without being obsequious or inappropriate, and the team spirit was amazing. They were expert and fast, and when they had nothing to do in their own areas, instead of sitting back and waiting, they helped their colleagues with whatever was necessary. They made an efficient and friendly team.

The final bill was not too expensive and we left feeling as if we'd enjoyed a real bit of France and the French. Good for them. We wish them continuing success.
