Our favorite restaurant in Lafayette

Excellent Italian dishes at moderate prices in a pleasant atmosphere. We visit whenever we can - often for lunch.

I always like to eat at a mom and pop local restaurant whenever I travel. This place has great food and great service. Love to stop here when I'm in town.

I've never had a bad meal here. The food is always delicious and it's clear that they use fresh ingredients.The recent renovations have made the atmosphere more appealing.

If you want great Italian food in this area, La Scala is the place to go. Besides great food and an Impressive wine list, the restaurant is well decorated and the service is very good. It is especially nice when weather permits you to eat outdoors. This is one of the few restaurants in town where I make a point... More

I've eaten here on three different occasions and have been disappointed every single time. The food isn't that good (except their tiramisu) and the service is the worst.

Not a chain. Everything is prepared fresh. Located downtown across from the courthouse. Unique atmosphere, cozy dining. Delicious food.

Every time that I have eaten here, I am reminded why I love this restaurant! The service is always very professional and just right. The servers know about every dish (which is impressive because there are a lot of dishes on the menu). The servers take care of your every needs. Then the food! Oh the food! Everything is made...

We only come once a year and this place is the one that we really look forward to having dinner at each year! We've had a variety of things and they've all been delicious!

My daughter and I went there after reading the reviews from Trip Advisor. It is a very nice Italian restaurant. The staff was very friendly. The bread was amazing. I think it had rosemary baked into it. They were crowded, but luckily we were able to get a small table in the back. I didn't make reservations and I wonder... More

Wonderful food quality and reasonably priced. They are always willing to accommodate requests and make things off menu. Service staff is very knowledgeable.
