We went to La Scala for my friends birthday. The food and service in this restaurant would rival the top London restaurants. The food is cooked to perfection and absolutely delicious. One of the best meals I have eaten in a long time, would highly recommend!

Visited here last month with my partner it was my first visit, but he has been a regular for years. It was very busy and had a seat upstairs. The menu was very varied and it took me ages to choose cos of the choices. A two course meal for two people and wine was just over £60.00. Very reasonable.... More

It's the way it's cooked and delivered, nothing is too much trouble and the wine to go with the meal just ask Franco for the perfect match, and it will not be the most expensive and possibly not even on the wine list.

We visited La Scala on recommendation and were not disappointed. The restaurant is small but that adds to the ambiance. A varied menu and all allergy's catered for - they have gluten free pasta if required and cook food fresh to order. I cannot eat garlic but chef cooked me a tomato sauce minus it ( some Italian restaurants won't... More

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
