Great Food

The food was amazing. I highly recommend the Grilled Caesar Salad, it was delicious. I can't say enough about the olive oil we were given to dip our bread in. It was fruity, light and very tasty. The ambiance is warm and cozy, with a complete Bocce Ball court on the lower level. George picked us up... read more

We had a wonderful meal at La Scala over our vacation. The service was great and the food was superb. The restaurant has little nooks and crannies all over, so you feel secluded at your table. The indoor bocce court adds a casual vibe, but this is definitely upscale food. We'll be back!

Last night, we dined with friends at La Scala for the first time. The food was delicious, the service impeccable, the waiter humorous and engaging yet totally professional, the atmosphere inviting, and the bar tender "got it right the first time." One of the owners greeted us warmly on our arrival and later personally came to check on our satisfaction... More

Great dining that is at once home-style but refined - not an easy combination to achieve. Service is excellent - personal and attentive.

We were staying at hotel on Pier 5 and were able to walk here for dinner (maybe 6-8 blocks). Olives and grilled Caesar salad delish. Veal dishes and a chicken dish very good. Nice wine.

I was then left to ask for everything as no attention is paid to the single who would probably be the best tipper!! So no free appy as they both... More

Found it by chance. Place was very busy. Only a couple of seats at the bar, which I did not mind. The food was outstanding, the drinks were spot on. Chef/owner stopped by multiple times to talk about food/business ownership/baltimore etc. Then as I was getting ready to leave...I discovered Bocce, downstairs. Met and played a couple games with strangers... More

My husband and I recently spent a weekend getaway in Baltimore and booked dinner reservations at La Scala based on TripAdvisor reviews. Sadly, we found our experience to be a bit disappointing. The pros: we were quickly seated, the atmosphere is romantic and quaint, and water was quickly brought to our table after we were seated. It did take a... More

This is a beautiful Restaurant. Inside has been remodeled with a gorgeous staircase to upper seating. It also has outside dinning. The food is absolutely great and the prices are average for the area. Valet parking and parking very close by in the parking garage. La Scala is within walking distance to Harbor East.
