They had a varied menu the food was fresh and cooked to order and presented really well. My husband's only complaint was that he didn't get enough vegetables with his meal other than that everything was very nice.

I would given it the full five for excellent but what slightly spoilt the evening was sitting at an upstairs table above the kitchen This made it very warm and my eyes uncomfortably dry. However the food was excellent as was the service. The atmosphere was jut like the small, cosy family run restaurants we have visited during our many... More

As a regular visiter to Italy I'm usually sceptical about visiting Italian restaurants in the uk. But this place really proved me wrong some really nice options and a good sized menu. Well prepared quality food with professional service to match. I can strongly recommend the mista di carne and the octopus starter my partner is a huge fan of... More

Very impressed with La Scala. It is a very intimate venue almost a little crowded, and the tables being a bit close can cause some issues. However the atmosphere is wonderful and the food really very good and so tasty. I had the fish grill and all was superb. The menu is varied and starters mains and puddings were all... More

We went here late one August eve, later than planned actually as they weren't ready to seat us until half an hour after our booking, but we had a drink in a neighboring boozer and all was well. The staff gave us a free glass of vino upon (second) arrival and were very nice so we soon forgot the lateness... More

Found this restaurant on Trip Advisor and decided to visit based on the reviews, and I wasn't disappointed. I believe there were two veal dishes on the menu, but I can't remember which one I had. I'm sure the other option would have been just as fantastic as the one I had. My sister, brother's girlfriend and I went the... More

Where to start? The food is just beautifully cooked and truthfully some of the best I've ever eaten. Reasonably priced too! Vegetarians are well catered for as are meat and fish eaters and the wine list is great. The restaurant isn't huge so I recommend booking. In fact I recommend La Scala full stop. Superb!

We stumbled across this restaurant last year when looking for somewhere to pass the time before our ferry crossing, and it stood out then as being a restaurant worth returning to. So we did. This time, it also happened to be our wedding anniversary, so we were more than happy to linger longer and enjoy a very celebratory meal. We... More

Ate here on a Saturday evening with three friends. We had a table booked for 8pm. Restaurant was busy and service was slow, but the waiting staff kept us informed of progress (staff were friendly and helpful). Food was cooked to order and worth the wait.

We stayed overnight in Dover en route to Europe by ferry and ate here. When we arrived for our meal (pre booked) out table wasn't ready as the previous customers were taking a lot longer than usual. Two young waiters couldn't have been more apologetic and when we did finally sit down topped our (delicious) wine up as an apology.... More
