If you are looking for a good Italian restaurant, look elsewhere. Mediocre pasta and tasteless veal marsala. We were expecting more and definitely won't return.

This is the La Scala's on 7th and Chestnut St. We stopped here for a light lunch, had a Ravioli and a baked eggplant. Very nice, price reasonable, and service excellent. Would return.

Our dinner was outstanding. The pasta sauce had to have been home made, full or flavor with an outstanding body. My wife was amazed at the pasta she had. A mistake was made and corrected immediately with no problem. Go here you will NOT be disappointed.

I love when alla vodka is done right and this place does it right. my husband loved his pizza. I only wish we weren't so full from lunch still that we could have tried the risotto balls. oh and the bread here is heavenly. now I like bread sometimes at dinner but this bread omg. I couldn't stop eating it.
