Good drinks - bit pricey for food, but high quality

Felt like a steak and an Ale. Was pleasantly surprised at the cost of the Ale but the same went for the steak. It was perfect but a little overpriced. Paid $44 for a very moderately proportioned sirloin which was worth about $33 dollars all things considered. For $44 it should have come with more... read more

This restaurant we have been to a number of times. Had a couple of bad experiences early but as it is around the corner from our house we gave it a go. We recently booked the private room for a function and it was excellent. Our guests are still raving about the food, wine & service. The chef really has... More

Brilliant food here at la scala. Divine imported burata, with amazing bread. A brilliant ragu, perfectly cooked spatchcock, and the desserts are amazing. Chocolate and salted caramel mousse best ever.

Still not disappointed on a return visit. Met with new friends after work and a nice way to finish the week. The restaurant is dimly lit enhancing a relaxing layback atmosphere. Started with a cocktail and selected a lovely red from the extensive wine list to go with the $65ph feasting menu which is great value and variety. They also... More

We had the $65 feasting menu and it was truly fantastic. I cannot say any dish was a favourite as all were just delicious. I love sitting back and just having dish after dish come out. It included 8 dishes and 2 desserts. Incredible food and equally great value. GO

Ate here with my wife and 5 friends on a Saturday night and had a great time. The wine list is very good (I'm particularly impressed with the number of NSW offerings), the food very tasty and decent value, and the service is good. My only criticism is that the menu doesn't change as much as I think it should.... 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
