Solid, unspectacular Itlaian fare

A terrific retro sort of place with very good (not great) Italian food. This place has lots of fun evenings with American standards music and dancing and fixed price dinners. This is also a good place for lunch; the restaurant serves an nice buffet for a very reasonable price.

The atmosphere was nice. We enjoyed a great Antipasto Platter appetizer. My entree' was a delicious combination of different pasta dishes each cooked to perfection. I did not stay for the live music. I will definitely make a return visit.

One of my favorites with fresh pasta . The pasta pomodoro and lasagna are just as you would desire. Many good dishes and the lemon crusted cheesecake was worthy. Especially festive when pianist or music are scheduled. Relaxing with great wait staff.

Most people go for the bar scene and live music.Dining area gets much less attention than it did in the old days.Food and service are just average but the locals still like to go to the bar/lounge area especially on nights when they have live entertainment.Still do a decent job for special events and large groups.In it's present form this...

My husband and I like, no love, Italian food. We thought we would try this restaurant based on some of the Trip Advisor reviews we saw. We called a reserved a table but once we got there we sat at the bar and indulged (like many others) in a great happy hour drink special. Others were dining at the bar... More

I recently had an event at La Scala and can't say enough good things about the food and staff. I did have a budget in mind and they did great to help me get what I wanted, but stay in the budget. The food is great as well and all of the staff was attentive and kind. I've also been... More

Came here with my family and are always weary of Italian food made outside the home and this was confirmed after dinner. We all had a series of different dishes that were ok, but not worth the money. Tried the lasagna, grouper, chicken Marsala and a pork dish. Lasagna was the best out of all of them, but still very... More

La Scala clearly tries to take its diners back to the feel of old Italy, unfortunately it didn't take its kitchen staff back there as well. My recent experience there had me ordering a special dish, that was to be a combination of Linguine, Shrimp, and Pesto Sauce. The resulting delivery from the waiter, once he made it back around,...

We had a party of 14 and the service was great. The salads are huge so we bought a few and shared them. The calamari was perfect! Everyone who ordered Steaks were extremely pleased! All the pasta dishes that were ordered were excellent. I would definitely recommend this restaurant!
