Visited here on a Friday night in January. Restaurant wasn't busy and the attention from the staff was fantastic. The wait for the food was a little long but not uncomfortably so, however it was certainly worth the wait! Lovely little restaurant which we will be certain to visit again.

We have eaten in La Scala before after reading good reviews on trip advisor and were not disappointed the food was excellent & the service superb, very attentive & friendly. Last night we had the opportunity to eat there again. Unfortunately I was almost 45mins late on our booking time due to work & it was getting close to 10pm.... More

A fantastic meal, service and great surroundings. Max and his team make you feel so welcome and at ease, from the moment of arrival to the moment you choose to leave. Overall a great place for couples, families, groups or private parties. Enjoy :-)
