The food was really good. The chicken parm is top notch and it is located in a great spot. A little pricey, but highly recommended.

Just stopped in for a bit after visiting Independence Hall - this place has a great location for being near the historical landmarks of Philadelphia. Service was speedy and extremely friendly - everything was amazing.

Called into La Scala's for dinner during our stay in Philadelphia and had a most enjoyable meal. A relaxing atmosphere and attentive waiting staff added to the experience. The pasta was great with helpings we could not finish. Cost was reasonable and more than happy to recommend this eaterie.
