good food. Nice intimate setting to bring your mistress. I'm on the sunshine list so price isn't an issue.

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.

This is the best restaurant I've ever been to in Niagara. Stuff is extremely friendly and nice. They can cook anything for you even if its not on the menu. Food is delicious and prices are great. I would definitely cone back here.

My co-workers and I went for a Friday lunch. The food was delicious as always, and the staff was exceptionally friendly. They were super busy (and I think short staffed), and I didn't feel we were ignored. I love coming here.

New location. Nicer. Great decor. Nice mix bar area / restaurant. Overall good food quality and quantity. Surprisingly, but as with many bars/restaurants, no blended drinks/ eg Margaritas. Also, bread to start, not warm... small thing, but so noticeably good when it is served warm. Service a little slow. Slow to come, slow to check, slow to follow up. Server... More
