My wife and I and 3 other couples dined recently in this lovely restaurant located in the historic Fels Point Little Italy district. You can easily drive to it or take the convenient water taxi from the Inner Harbor to Fels Point and then walk to the restaurant. The restaurant is spacious with seating upstairs, on the main floor including... More

The food here is very good, although we had to wait for it, it was worth it. Service was very good and friendly.

the service and food was delicious! There was a friendly and hospital atmosphere from when you walked through the door to when you exited. Also there was car service by George back and forth to the hotel which was great!

We were a party of four and had a reservation and went right to our table on a busy weekday evening. Seems every day is busy and we know why. Our waiter was very gracious and took drink orders immediately which we appreciated. The chef/owner stopped by and chatted with us for several minutes. Very impressive and very personable. He...

Went on a Friday night with a party of 7. The grilled octopus, recommended by the waiter, was awesome. The bruschetta and artichoke and crab were equally delicious. A few hiccups - my daughter wanted chicken piccata instead of veal. She was presented with 2 large chicken pieces instead of medallions - so it just wanted the same. They also... More

Popped in here on a Friday night and they asked if we had a reservation... we didn't but opted to sit at a table next to the bar. Soooo glad we stayed. Food was Delicious. Everything was wonderful from the cocktails (prepared exactly as I asked) to the pasta a la vodka. And the Tiramisu and Limoncello were delightful. Everyone... More

La Scala was yet another great stop in walking around Little Italy in Baltimore. If I'm back someday, I think I'd exclusively eat in this borough as everywhere I went was truly amazing. This is really some excellent Italian, and I enjoyed it thoroughly. I was by myself, and I really wish I had been with a few friends. Portions... More

I've been coming to Baltimore for over 10 years now, and somehow I never wound up at La Scala. I guarantee you that I'll be back again much sooner than that! I had the lamb special which was phenomenal, the wine was spectacular and the service superior. An awesome dining experience.

16 of us went to La Scala to celebrate a family birthday. We originally experienced the food at "The Taste of Baltimore" fundraiser. For the event, they made eggplant meatballs (Vegan). We thought they were delicious, and complimented the servers. They told us these were not on the menu, but if we wanted them to call ahead and ask. They... More
