Lovely little find by chance. Was going to Carluccio's but saw this and thought we'd give it a whirl. Very nice freshly prepared food from a comprehensive selection. Staff friendly and helpful. Does get a little noisy when everyone's chatting but that's just a problem with my dodgy hearing! Was a little stuffy but we will pay a return visit.

Found this deli purely by chance. Turned off main shopping centre and there it was - below pavement. Good Italian food. Great variety, moderately priced , good portions. All cooked/prepared to order so not the fastest of service. However order and enjoy a glass of wine or coffee or soft drink whilst waiting for your order. A relaxed eating event... More

We enjoyed a quick lunch while shopping. The main course avocado salad was a good sized portion with fresh leaves and delicious breads. Fast and efficient service.

Just managed to squeeze in for a table at a Saturday lunchtime. Staff were very busy, yet somehow they managed to provide excellent food very quickly. Well done!

With a motto of 'great service, quality goods and value for everyone', La Scala Delicatessen certainly sets the stakes high - and luckily for the discerning foodie, it delivers on every count of its promise. As if this ethos was not attractive enough, the vast array of wonderful foodstuffs adorning every available space will soon have your mouth watering. The quality of the produce is obvious - from the shining gleam bouncing off plump olives and the rich smell coming from perfectly matured cheeses, to the sound of crusty bread being wrapped in rustic paper.Whether you are on a rushed lunch break or simply enjoying a languorous browse, there's plenty to feast your eyes upon at La Scala. There are some delicious snacks and more filling main meals to be had, all available to take away. If you are heading back to the office, add a little indulgence to your desk-dining with an open sandwich of poached salmon with fresh salad and a balsamic and lemon dressing. Alternatively, you may enjoy a tapenade, goat's cheese and sun-blushed tomato panini, or perhaps a sandwich filled with beef in a spicy tomato sauce. The salads are healthy yet hearty, including combinations such as avocado with mozzarella, baby tomatoes and mange tout, all laced with La Scala's house dressing. Of the hot dishes, the smoked bacon and Cheddar pasta bake is a winner, as is the pesto pasta with salami, mozzarella, black olives and tomatoes. If a snack is all you are after, there is a fabulous range of antipasto on offer, including cold cuts of meat, peppers filled with feta, olives in various marinades, stuffed vine leaves and of course a selection of fresh bread. If you want to spread some La Scala joy among your friends, the hampers make lovely gifts, and are also perfect for posh picnics. Your only problem will be picking a selection of delicious delicacies, as everything from La Scala is packed with flavour and unbelievably tasty.
