La Scala on Jersey has embarked on an exciting new chapter, with the talented Massimo Mele as Executive Chef. Massimo draws on his childhood influences from Naples to deliver both his modern take on the originals as well as traditional Italian dishes. La Scala on Jersey brings to life his ethos of Tutti A Tavola - 'everyone to the table'. It's a place for every occassion, to share food and wine with friends and family, for a casual dinner or for a special celebration. At La Scala on Jersey, the true Italian feasting and sharing style of dining is encouraged, but if you fancy a bowl of delicious pasta (or anything else for that matter) all to yourself - that's ok too.

Not been for a while, but pleased with the menu. Bit pricey. Service very good. More casual then used to be. Italian styled menu. Menu is limited to about 6 entrees, 6 mains and a few deserts. Excellent wine and spirit menu as well. Parking is extremely difficult so cab it. I had the prawn pasta... read more

I've eaten at La Scala many times and have always found the modern Italian-style food and service to be excellent. I felt I should add this review today as last night I had what was about the most tender and flavoursome lamb dish of my life. The manager recommended a sangiovese, by no means the most expensive wine on a... More

UN-family friendly!! Brought my two daughters here for dinner and we were treated like 2nd class citizens! Booked an early table on a weeknight, we were seated in a far corner. As the night progressed it became clear the maitre d' placed us far away from all other customers, (why??) as other tables filled up the restaurant except anywhere near... More

We have eaten our way through this menu too often. No reason to go back. Usually no specials and last night the figs were off at 7:30 already?

We when for dinner 3 of us after the Swans game at Allianz Stadium thinking it would be a reasonable place to have a meal after the footie. The food was good and well presented but way to expensive every dish was at least $12-14 too much. I understand the cost of the staff is huge and there were 6-7... More

If you're an entertainment card member don't eat here. You'll pay $10 per bottle of wine for corkage (they won't even open the bottles) and then they refuse to honour the 25% discount from the card - outrageous! As has been said by others, the staff lack personality and the food is ok at best. With so many other options... More

Went to La Scala last night and thought it worthy of a review. We shared our entrees which were spiced calamari and a burrata and tomato salad. The calamari was not spicy but tasty and fresh all the same and the salad was also good although not the softest burrata. For mains we had the porcini and herb crusted barramundi... More

We had the $30 midweek meal of homemade pici pasta duck and porcini ragu, shaved parmesan and goats milk ricotta. It was delicious and the combination of flavours worked. Included in the price was a glass of Pinot - what's not to like? This was exceptional value. In addition kids 12 and under eat for free!!! There is a good... More

Once you get up the stairs, this place is a delight. Warm welcome, good Negroni, delicious food, genuinely warm professional service, comfortable and hospitable. It's all a restaurant should be. We had a ball!
