Sunday night dinner with Family was the first time we've tried La Scala and we're glad we did! The food was traditional Italian prepared with integrity and perfect service. Pricing was extremely reasonable for the quality and quantity of food and the excellent service. This place would compete and win in downtown Toronto.

Went for a business lunch with a colleague and the food was fantastic! We both ordered a pasta dish and were very pleased with our choices. I would recommend La Scala to anyone looking for a great mean in a nice Italian restaurant.

A surprise find but an outstanding restaurant. St. Catharines should appreciate an establishment like this where it's not just about food (excellent) or setting (excellent) but hospitality. I look forward to many more enjoyable evenings there!

We have been going to La Scala for years. First for the odd business lunch at the old location and now as our favorite restaurant in the Region. We have watched the transition between locations and to a new chef who we think is outstanding. There are fancier and much more expensive places, but Joe and his staff have balanced... More

My wife and I were going to go to the Vietnamese across the street but they are shut down so we came to La Scala instead. Wow are we glad we did. The food was great. We have the Antipasti, the Caprese, Bruschetta (Incredible!) and the Ravioli. Everything was great and finish off with an Almond Biscotti and a capicino.

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.
