The food was wonderful. Excellent if you have a big appetite. I don't, but thoroughly enjoyed everything I ate and my partner was well satisfied with his choices. Staff were friendly and helpful.

We visited during our holiday in Paignton and I had high expectations based on Trip Advisor reviews. As it was early evening there was only one waiter but as the place filled up he seemed to be rushing around. He spilled the water on our table and instead of offering to mop it up, he just left it there and... More

We cycled in the Dartmoor Classic 100 and the 3 of us were particularly hungry. We booked a table at La Scala and the food and service was absolutely fantastic - there was nothing you could fault. One of our party left his mobile phone on the table and max drove this to our hotel in Goodrington Sands.... Now that... More

We live locally but haven't been to this restaurant for 20 years. My husband and I decided on an impromptu meal out together and we're not disappointed. Fabulous service and a complimentary amaretto liqueur!

Got the address from my phone app around me. Phoned the restaurant to make arrangements but it was answer phone. I was just about to go somewhere else when I did get a call saying they could give us a table in 30 minutes, which we agreed. On arrival I was surprised to see how small it is and just... More

Beautiful food. Faultless service. The price reflects the standard of food which is wonderful. The one and only true Italian in Torbay.

Probably the best restaurant in Devon, and the fillet steak is world class. Max and his team give 100% service from the time you walk through the door. Nothing is too much trouble and the food is of the highest quality. Extensive wine menu and quality all round. Miss this and you miss out. I recently took a TV crew... More

We were looking for somewhere maybe a little different,so joined by two friends we booked at La Scala. GOOD CHOICE. From the moment we walked in, and were warmly met by the patron we knew it was going to be a success,a varied menu. extensive wine list,really not sure what to order, a very patient waiter, the order went into...

This excellent restaurant is tucked away in Paignton but well worth seeking out. It is small but the tables are not crammed in and there is a nice view over the park. We ate late on a Sunday evening on the bank holiday weekend and the service was excellent, many other restaurants could not be bothered to let customers in... More
