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.

We were both really looking forward to having a good cappucino in an authentic, local, independent Italian cafe/ delicatessen for that is what this well appointed establishment certainly purports to be. Instead the coffees masqueraded as properly made cappucini with a tasteless bitter and overly hot liquids under chocolate covered foams. It may not be possible to have a top... More

Unlike so many places in the centre of town this is not a chain restaurant but an authentic 'cafe plus' Italian place - very genuine. Pleasant service and popular (it's quite small, in the basement) but the food comes fast. Filling meals - we shared a mixed cheese and cold meat plate and it was enough for two.

My daughter and I have been coming here for 10 years. However busy it is you are always made welcome and a table is found for you as quickly as possible. The food is delicious and served by happy, attentive staff. A family run restaurant where customers and good service matter.

This small, basement restaurant close to the Everyman Theatre does a decent range of Italian meals. We had chicken and mushroom in a spaghetti sauce and it was very good. Service was friendly and fast from real Italians! Lunch for two, including soft drinks and one slice of cake was £18.30. Definitely worth a visit.

I come here regularly for lunch and it's always yummy! Their salads are great value for money and taste amazing especially the halloumi salad with homemade pesto, my fave! The owner is always very friendly too offering a warm welcome!
