Massimmo is such a good host, he was very attentive and made sure that we had a nice evening. The food was stunning! We enjoyed ourselves so much that we went back two days later!

My boyfriend and I went to La Scala for my birthday. We had very nice pasta dishes for our main course but there are lots of other choices too. Our table had been decorated for my birthday and we found Max to be a very attentive host. He even brought out a huge piece of Italian gateau complete with birthday... More

The service here was very good, and the restaurant itself is very pleasant. Situated just off Torbay Road (known locally as "Grockle Alley" due to the number of holidaymakers to be found there during the holiday season), it is easily missed - as I have done for several years - but is worth searching out. The food was very competent... More

In this restaurant you cannot avoid to feel like in Italy. The decor, the host and his welcoming manners are a winner, and the food does not disappoint. I personally had chicken with courgettes and it was superb. A must.

Really lovely food. Very attentive staff. You could tell everything was copied from scratch and was good quality. Would thoroughly recommend this restaurant to others.

I visited La Scala at the recommendation of our host from The Cherry Tree Hotel. Max the host couldn't do enough for our group, and he had a gentleman singing Italian songs all evening, and had the whole restaurant in a festive mood! The food was excellent with a great selection of Italian wine. I would highly recommend La Scala.

Went to La Scala again on the 17th Jan 2015 for my Mum's birthday and we had an excellent time. The food was first class, compliments to the chef, and the service friendly and professional. We go back again and again, it just has to be done. Thanks Max for the birthday cake for Mum, we had to take it... More
