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.

Much better than last time

We visited for a friend's special birthday - just like the time before. This time the food & service were great. After the previous experience, I was a little apprehensive.

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!

I must preface this review by saying that this is only the second one I've done-the last one was also because I was so very disappointed that I felt compelled to warn others. I've eaten at La Scala once previously with a group of friends when the experience was a very different one to tonight. The first time around the... More

We booked the private dining room for my husbands surprise birthday party. The restaurant staff were fantastic to deal with in organising the menus, the room and the wine list. Nothing was too much trouble and everything was dealt with easily and positively. We opted for the $65 set menu, and were not disappointed at all. The food was delicious,... More

This is said to be fine dining modern Australian Italian. In all the confusion, look out for waiters who ignore you and wine prices that bite you. My best tip is to eat there, if you must, on a Monday night when you can take along your best red and enjoy paying only for the food. However, that said, my... More

The friendly greeting we received set the tone for the evening. Really pleasant smiling service, with someone around at just the right time. We enjoyed the food very much, in particular our shared plates. Next time I think we will order more share plates and skip the main. We thought the wine by the glass was a little expensive, so...

We were invited to a birthday party here and were given the banquet menu. What a surprise each course was- delightfully conceived and delicious dishes that were irresistible! So much variety and wonderful flavours! The decor is great with the most amazing lady's loo upstairs (the ladies couldn't help but take us guys on a tour). A very, very nice... More

I've been here three times in the last six months and have been impressed every time. The service has always be excellent and the food tasty and well presented. I also like the wine list as it is comprehensive, both in price range and styles, without being intimidatingly large. The decor is also pleasant, without too many tables for the... More

We have been to this restaurant a couple of times and as usual, enjoyed it immensely. The staff are so helpful and know their dishes as they can then explain fully. They are ‘share plates’ which is good if you want to enjoy many flavours rather than ‘just a main meal’. It is fully licensed but on a Monday night... More

We went here for a work Christmas dinner. They seated our group of 20+ people in a separate room which is nice when you have a discrete group of people together. We turned out to have a couple of extra people compared to the booking but the restaurant handled that well without any fuss and provided the extra chairs. They... More
