With a motto of 'great service, quality goods and value for everyone', La Scala Delicatessen certainly sets the stakes high - and luckily for the discerning foodie, it delivers on every count of its promise. As if this ethos was not attractive enough, the vast array of wonderful foodstuffs adorning every available space will soon have your mouth watering. The quality of the produce is obvious - from the shining gleam bouncing off plump olives and the rich smell coming from perfectly matured cheeses, to the sound of crusty bread being wrapped in rustic paper.Whether you are on a rushed lunch break or simply enjoying a languorous browse, there's plenty to feast your eyes upon at La Scala. There are some delicious snacks and more filling main meals to be had, all available to take away. If you are heading back to the office, add a little indulgence to your desk-dining with an open sandwich of poached salmon with fresh salad and a balsamic and lemon dressing. Alternatively, you may enjoy a tapenade, goat's cheese and sun-blushed tomato panini, or perhaps a sandwich filled with beef in a spicy tomato sauce. The salads are healthy yet hearty, including combinations such as avocado with mozzarella, baby tomatoes and mange tout, all laced with La Scala's house dressing. Of the hot dishes, the smoked bacon and Cheddar pasta bake is a winner, as is the pesto pasta with salami, mozzarella, black olives and tomatoes. If a snack is all you are after, there is a fabulous range of antipasto on offer, including cold cuts of meat, peppers filled with feta, olives in various marinades, stuffed vine leaves and of course a selection of fresh bread. If you want to spread some La Scala joy among your friends, the hampers make lovely gifts, and are also perfect for posh picnics. Your only problem will be picking a selection of delicious delicacies, as everything from La Scala is packed with flavour and unbelievably tasty.

The coffee and food served here are consistently good. Most dishes are served with a tasty dressed salad but I always make room for one of the delicious cakes.

Tasty imaginative yet simple Italian dishes using top-quality ingredients. Staff always friendly and attentive. You can't go wrong with anything on the menu but my personal favourite is the Napoli pasta.

Excellent choice of pastas, salads, paninis and wraps - hard to make a choice! And lovely desserts to finish off with. Been wanting to try here for a number of months and so pleased it lived up to expectation. The seating area is much larger than expected as well. Brilliant food, great portions and I would say better than Dolce... More

A favourite place to go for a light lunch. Tasty fresh food served by friendly and efficient staff who always make you feel welcome. I wish the seating wasn't quite so cramped though.
