I ordered wine, appetizers, entrees, and desert for three it cost me $150 including tip. The dining room is rather dark, table are covered in white linen, the staff is excellent, knowledgable, and professional. The bread was great. My fettuccini alfredo was perfect.

We had a wonderful dinner and great service at LaScala. The only disappointment was the dessert. Definitely sub-par, especially after the fantastic appetizers, dinner and service we received.

Anyone who calls this traditional Italian has never been to Italy or even NY. The gnocchi arrived completely submerged in some kind of cheesy liquid, the other pasta dishes where totally covered in sauce and by the way more bad sauce does not make the dish good. The veal saltimbocca was also swimming in liquid and covered in cheese to... More

Dined at La Scala for the first time, July 4th for dinner. We had a large party (8 people). The host who sat us could not be nicer. He was very accomodating. Our server was friendly, helpful and full of personality. The food was FANTASTICO!!!! We enjoyed for starters the gorganzola stuffer digs, as well as the grilled caeser salad.... More

I dined here with a group of 30. I was not impressed with the food. The service and the ambience, however were excellent.

This place deserves more average stars than it has received so far. We found it to be classic Italian in every way, with great food, wine, atmosphere and service. We would give it a sixth star if possible.

What a great place! Our party of 8 had cocktails in the lower area near the bacci court and were able to fit comfortably. The service was excellent and everyone enjoyed their meals. The artichoke with crab appetizer was delicious and I recommend the gnocchi with vodka sauce. Veal Marsala was excellent. Can't go wrong here!

Service was good and prompt. Very traditional Italian fare, good wine recommendations, nice homely decor. Not too bad a place for a quiet and enjoyable meal. The calamari was notably good.

This was our first visit to La Scala Restaurant and we were very pleased. They actually picked us up from our hotel as well as took us back after dinner.....a real plus to not have to worry about how to get there and parking! Waiters were very attentive. We all enjoy our meals very much! Grilled Caesar Salad was dee-licious!

Exellent Italian food in Baltimore's Little Italy. Wonderful service. We were there to celebrate my son's college gradution and they even gave him a graduation card. Considering the quality of the food and service, the restaurant is well priced.
