Three of us girls decided to lunch out and La Scala was the suggested downtown spot. We arrived at 1:00 p.m. and were seated promptly in the out front covered area...weather was perfect for this. Our server (Mary) immediately took our drink order...all were having wine. We waited approximately 10 minutes for our drinks and the restaurant was not busy... More

It was a quiet night the first week of August and my girlfriend and I decided to try Lascala downtown St. Catharines. I wish we wouldn't have. Although the server seemed to be attentive and on the ball, she entirely messed up our order. Right from our drinks to our mains. Once I got my pasta, it was cold. My... More

Went for dinner and sat on the patio Friday night. Great overall experience! The bread and dip was great and we were offered more without asking. Both entrées were delicious same with the wine. Then we each got dessert and continued to sit on the patio without any rush. The waitress was great! Would recommend and return.

Off the beaten path restaurant. Away from the influx of tourists that are there to see the Falls. The town itself is charming. The owner of this quaint restaurant visited with us and gave us a tasting menu of the very popular Ice Wine known to that region. The food was excellent. Top notch! And, the entire staff was super...

Whenever we have the time to eat in St. Catharines, we always bypassed La Scala and saw that the restaurant was overflowing. “It must be good!” I thought. We finally went to this restaurant. When I opened the door, there were only two customers! Where were the other people who filled this place? The couple there encouraged us to eat... More

At least six entres to pick from and then the dessert was selected for you . For 59.99 the date night menu also included a... More

While the mains seemed lacking (and there was no bread - shocking for an Italian restaurant) the desserts are something to write home about. And the new patio is dreamy with lights creating a wonderful atmosphere for noshing and chatting.

I had really high hopes going to this restaurant. I ordered the calamari which was completely bland and tasteless. The roasted potatoes tasted as though they had been cooked, refrigerated overnight and reheated in the microwave. We also overheard the table next to us complaining about the quality of the food - the vegetables were overcooked. They definitely need to... More
