Description: 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.

We always pop in here for the best coffee ever, my husband highly recommends the cakes and lunches are absolutely delicious, packed with fresh ingredients and full of Italian tastes. Staff are very friendly, you could be forgiven for thinking you had been transported to Italy!

Whilst visiting Cheltenham to catch an afternoon matinee at a nearby theatre, we spotted La Scala and decided to have lunch, as it was a warm day we asked if we could dine al fresco however just as we were about to return to the street tables the last one was taken, so we found a space indoors. After ordering... More

Had lunch here with some friends. The baguettes are served with the most fabulous homemade pesto dressing. A lovely touch! Service very friendly, will definitely go back!

Thanks tripadvisor for pointing us here. Wouldn't have gone down the stairs otherwise and missed out on great service and fantastic food & coffee. Perfect stop in the middle of a days shopping.

We visited Cheltenham for my birthday on Saturday 1st March. Had a really tasty meal, one salad, one pasta and one sandwich. Service great and friendly. I was there again today Monday and had another lovely meal, Salmon open sandwich. Very busy but service was fine if a little slow which is only to be expected they were very apologetic.... More

We only called in for a coffee & cake whilst visiting Cheltenham for family reasons finding the place by chance. I lived in Cheltenham until 18 but am out of touch now with such delights as this place. Wonderfully friendly and welcoming; great coffee & super cakes. If we lived in Cheltenham we would use the place all the time

There are so few places where you can buy a genuine Italian meal in England these days. La Scala not only serves amazing, cheap Italian food, it does so right in the heart of Cheltenham. Naturally I asked about the dressing they use for their salads. Needles to say the secret remains undisclosed. La Scala is a small place, which... More
