We ate here last year and came back this year for curlugiones - a hand made vegetarian ravioli . We were disappointed (having waited all year for a second helping) to find that it wasn't available as it had sold out, but a specially made vegetarian pasta with fresh veg more than made up for it. The funghi ai Quattro... More

We were staying in a B&B for the night and the Owner suggested La Scala - in addition it was a walking distance - such a bonus not to use the car. It was on a Monday evening so we were the only the Customers and the Lady gave us full attention ! This is Italian food and very tasty,... More

Upon looking for somewhere to eat out we found this place. We did have 2 children with us but wasn't a problem. We had 3 different starters and 3 different mains. All the food was excellent. Absolutely no complaints. Prices are exactly what you would expect. Worth a try in your in the area.

Beautiful food. Nice atmosphere. Friendly, helpful staff. Amazing puddings. Could have made myself very ill if I'd eaten any more.

After a disaster at Cinnamon Club what a joy to be welcomed warmly and to be served such delicious Italian food. Our grand children loved the chicken. My wife enjoyed the fish and the salad in particular, I so enjoyed the liver and mushrooms pasta. Thanks for such a memorable and enjoyable night.

Our starters were the mushrooms in a sauce, chilli prawns and garlic bread with cheese all of which were lovely. The mains we had were veal, mixed meat grill, tortalini and a steak, will... More

I have been to La Scala many times, I love everything about this restaurant (other than no parking). The ambience is peaceful, the food is consistently delicious, comforting and cooked to perfection and the wine is really good too! I like to sit upstairs on the mezzanine level however this would not be suitable for anyone with mobility problems. I... More
