Visited the restaurant twice, the first visit was good, the second visit we had to wait 2 hours between coarse, don't know why because the restaurant was only half full. The food was very good and the staff were friendly.

What I wanted wasn't on the menu, but the chef created a lovely pasta dish for me, which had plenty of huge prawns, tomatoes and chilli. Definitely worth a visit.

Very accomodating staff, friendly and happy to serve. The fillet steak was huge and absolutely delicious. Cooked to perfection. The sauce was very tasty and fantastic range of accompaniments. If we return to Paignton again we will definately be eating here.

Being lovers of Italian food, this restaurant did not disappoint. It has a varied menu with a good selection of pasta dishes. Ours was well presented, well served and delicious, the dessert (panna cotta with amoretto) was delicious and the Italian house wine proved good value for money. The menu wasn't the cheapest in Paignton, but we feel you get... More

We had done a bit of research before our long weekend in Paignton and La Scala seemed to get good reviews. We generally found it to be good (not exceptional) and perhaps a little over-priced.

I'm an italian guy, this is a very good resturant! I wish you'd enjoy your meal here! You should order, in my opinion, a main carbonara or pasta bolognese! Have a good meal
