A great choice for a night out with friends. Interesting menu good wine selection. Wait staff attentive not intrusive. Food was nicely plated for service. The interior is old world charm. Do try this place.

To start your meal order the Antipasti for the table. With lots of cured meats, olives, cheeses, grilled and pickled vegetables its a super start. You can almost just have that and wine and be content, except that the pasta are extremely well done and tasty. I will go back to this restaurant every time I am in St Catharines.

Good food, lovely atmosphere, pasta portions a little small and prices not bad. The staff didn't seem to know the menu very well and had to check on some things but friendly.

Had lunch at this busy downtown spot on Tuesday and haven't been able to stop talking about it! Wonderful food (the duck confit salad was outstanding and my friends all scraped their plates clean as well), atmosphere (where can you find a restaurant in St. Catharines this busy at lunch?!). This was our first time at the new spot. It's... More

Truly average food, topped off with watered down Grappa. Oh and wait... A ridiculous bill. Nice wait staff, but a mook of a head chef, who has been there for a month. Wow. Fool me once - never again.

Food was very good. Worst service I have ever experienced. Asked several times about the delay in getting our food. Was constantly told - soon. Asked to speak to the manager about the slow service. We told him we were not satisfied with the delay - after sitting at our table for about 90 minutes and no food. He said... More

Very pleasant restaurant in the downtown area with a nice terrace in the front that can be used on warm summer days. Service excellent and meals were good. The veal was a generous portion but over-breaded and a bit too tenderized - i.e. a bit "mushy".. The other dishes were very good and were fish specialties. Desserts good as well.... More

My wife and I had dinner at La Scala on Saturday, July 5th. The food was very good, the new restaurant is very nice and the wait staff were friendly yet unobtrusive. We arrived early for a drink at the bar. This is nice, quiet bar, where we chattered away about all the "important" things going on with the family.... More
