My husband took me here for our anniversary. We had both heard excellent things about this place. Maybe it was the hype, or the fact that I travel A LOT and eat at A LOT of places.... but LaScala is a really cute place, romantic if that is what you want, a great place for business and place to go...

Took my daughter as it is her favorite place in Lafayette. The food was fresh, nice portions, good wine list, good service and quiet. It is not a fancy place, but the interior is clean and well used. Agree with the parking comments, it is in a location where you do not want to park 3 blocks away at night... More

If you're in Lafayette check out La Scala. Particularly if you can get Hugo as your server. The combo of great food and awesome attitude is well worth it!

Meals are large enough to share. Very good pastas and sauces. Sandwiches, soups and salads are delish too! Great lunch spot too.

I was happy to find a restaurant that was not a fast food or chain type in Lafayette. I read some reviews on this restaurant and was very happy that we chose to go for dinner. The menu had a pretty big selection to choose from. Staff was very friendly and helpful with their choices of favorite items. Portions are... More

We booked this place for a birthday celebration on Open Table. It was really good. The helpings were generous and the flavors were outstanding. Their commitment to locally sourced fresh ingredients is commendable. The only problem we noticed were the tomatoes seemed to be unrippened, perhaps due to the season. It does fill up so.reservations are recommended to ensure you... More

LaScala always send me a special treat on my birthday...free appetizer or dessert. This year I used it at lunchtime and had a super meal. The ravioli was excellent...a really large portion. Dessert was large enough to share. Our sever even recommended the perfect wine for the meal.

Warning: this will be long-winded. Sorry. Well, I will start off by saying, this place needs to expand their hours, at least on Friday and Saturday nights. They close the kitchen at 9pm. I came with three other girlfriends and we (unaware of the closing time) showed up about 10mins before the kitchen closed, but the restaurant was still busy.... More

Nice enough we would take interview candidates there at work. Good Italian food and have gone there on my own, also.
