A most enjoyable evening!

Our group of 22 had a great evening at La Scala last Saturday! The food was very good, the service for our large group was excellent, and it was very nice to have the private room to ourselves. Many thanks to Stephanie and Kelsey who looked after us so well. We would definitely consider this... read more

My husband and I celebrated our Anniversary at La Scala Sunday evening. We arrived early and had the place to ourselves to relax and enjoy the ambiance. Our server was very attentive. The food was simply outstanding. The quality of the pasta dishes was evident in the homemade sauce and meatballs. I chose the Fusilli Florentine in a white wine... More

This venue located in a restored house on Queen St. in St.Catharines offers many delicious entrees of a European style cuisine. A lovely atmosphere and delicious food, combined with an above average and reasonably priced wine selection. This is a must try when visiting the new Meridian Centre or Performing Arts Centre.

Excellent service, delightful atmosphere. . Veal scallopinni was deiicious, gnocchi better than in Italy. Salads fresh and crisp. Waitress was attentive and extremely pleasant. Try the panne cotta for dessert. A touch of Italy in Ontario.

La Scala restaurant was recommended to uș by friends and after checking the menu on the restaurant website we decided to have dinner and celebrate my husband's birthday. We liked the food and ambiance, the service was ok, but the waitress did not seem very experienced. I had veal scallopini, which was delicious, I highly recommend it, compliments to the... More

I was invited to La Scala by a very knowledgeable foodie friend and was very glad to go. It was a lovely space with a great looking bar and two-seater booths. The lunch menu was very tight and interesting. Salads are very fresh. While not ordered, the entrees ordered at other tables looked delicious. Servings were large. Will definitely go... More

Great spot if you are looking for a nice dinner out and want a more relaxed intimate setting. Menu is limited in terms of quantity but seems to fit the atmosphere and pace of the restaurant. Service was amazing, very attentive and knowledgeable wait staff although the food took awhile to come out on what looked to be a slow... More

Decor/ atmosphere and service was excellent. Was disappointed with the spinach salad(very dry) and pasta entree. Prices are reasonable and will try again.

Decent new restaurant with a great atmosphere. The food was good but not great. Sauces were a little underwhelming and risotto could have been less dry. Menu is good, however. I just think they need to work out some kinks. Will give it another shot.
