We went here after searching on trip advisor and walking through Paignton for something better than the various pubs available, and were so glad we did. Food here was amazing, the owner was very helpful and the place had a genuine Italian feel to it. I was surprised we managed to walk in a get a table, but he place... More

Having booked the restaurant due to its high Trip Advisor rating, I was disappointed by the fact that despite asking on the phone if the place was suitable for children, we discovered on arrival that they don't even have a childrens menu & didn't make pizzas either. We ordered them smaller portion adult meals. The food itself was fine, nothing... More

My wife and have visited La Scala several times in the past and were happy to record previously that Max and his restaurant had returned to its previous exceptional level of service and great food. Last night we returned again for our anniversary meal and were again blown away with Max's customer focus. We arrived to find our table festooned... More

If you have read my other reviews you may think I am easily pleased because I am generous with the scores, that isn't the case, quite simply I do my research on TripAdvisor and else where.

The first surprise about this restaurant is that they have no website, so had to rely on Tripadivsor! Did not have the friendly atmosphere as stated on previous reviews. The food was nothing special, had much better Italian meals elsewhere, for what we had, we thought that it was rather pricey! Would not go out of my way to re-visit... More

My Carbonara was ok but my wifes Beef ragu not too interesting. It was fairly quiet and my starter plate was nicely served with lots of different antipasti. Owner was really friendly and nothing wrong with service. An ok option in Paignton

The food was exceptional and Max (the owner) was fantastic. He will chat to you and talk you through the menu and is a brilliant host.

We had a really good reception, food and attention to detail excellent. Would recommend this restuarant and will most certainly visit again when next in Paignton

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.
