Just had their Winter D'Lish menu...

I was at La Scala this weekend with one of my girlfriends. They were offering a Winter D'Lish menu and we chose from that. Overall, the food was delicious. The only thing I would have to comment on is that both of us found the caesar salad to be quite bitter. Our waitress was very friendly and the... read more

I hadn't tried this "new" location up until a work colleague recommended we go for lunch. I used to love going to the "old" location. It was cute and quaint and the food was always yummy and service was always great. This occasion wasn't what I was hoping for. Our server seemed a little off. Bad day? We had salads... More

This is by far my new favourite date night spot. The food was excellent, the presentation was superb and the atmosphere was perfect. The chef who personally made our 3 course meal perfected my main pasta and delivered easily the best tiramisu I have ever eaten. 10/10 and I would recommend to anyone.

We chose this restaurant as it had good reviews. We were not disappointed. Service was excellent and the food was very well presented and tasty. Reservations are needed but well worth trying . I will be back.

I was back to the restaurant to join a birthday party. The food was excellent, the ambiance and service were good. Better experience than earlier this year, which was already good. I will definitely go back!

My wife and I went to this restaurant looking for a place that we had not been to before. We were impressed right from the time we entered La Scala Ristorante. Sarah, the restaurant manager, greeted us promptly and made us feel welcome. The ambiance, along with the delicious food and drink, and excellent service really made our night. We... More

First time at this downtown Italian restaurant called La Scala. We really enjoyed the atmosphere - very "Tuscan" in it's old wooden floors and plastered walls. The food was delicious - we especially enjoyed the Caprese salad. I had the soup to start and it a delicious butternut squash with roasted pumpkin seeds - yummy. Server was knowledgeable and professional.... More

The seafood pasta was amazing. The overall service was very good and the decor was a reminder of Tuscany with the reclaimed brick walls and plank flooring.. Will return.

Really great meal and atmosphere. Great decor. Showed up without reservation and they rearranged the seating plan despite trying to fit a group of 6 at the last minute. Within 20 minutes saw another 50-60 guests arrive. Great service and exceptional Linguine Picatta. Thank you.
