Got an opportunity to stop in and have an appetizer and cocktail. What a great place. I will definitely have to come here for a full blown dinner experience. Great Staff!

Hosted 24 people for a "Farewell" lunch. Ordered off the menu for 24 people. Food and drinks were delivered quickly - difficult with no limits on the menu choices. The kitchen delivered as well as our server. The guest of honor thoroughly enjoyed his lunch. Food was over the top and the drinks flowed freely. Thanks for a memorable farewell.

They have pretty good Italian food with a nice selection of wines and Italian liquor. The veal piccata was delicious and gluten free options as well. Great service.

Food was average. There is much better Italian fare available for the price. But this is Greater Lafayette, so maybe there are not many options. Service was mediocre to the best. The servers and the manager clearly need training on greeting customers, taking care of them and generally making the guests feel much more welcome and cared for. That said,... More

Atmosphere is one of the better venues in Lafayette, but the prices are high for what you get. Meal was above average, but not excellent. Quite a bit of the staff seem to mingle more among themselves verses the customers. Still a good place to visit & hopefully they'll improve over time.

Upon our arrival to Lafayette my parents and I were very hungry. Just before leaving the hotel for dinner my mom found La Scala in the hotel booklet. We arrived around 7, didn't call ahead and they didn't have a table available until about 8:30. We were to hungry to wait so we walked down the street and thought maybe... More

We had a reservation at 5:30, but it didn't seem necessary as it wasn't full, but was filling up as we left. The food was delicious and hot and we had great service. The prices are very reasonable and the portions are large. The house salad is very fresh with a variety of vegetables, not just lettuce. You get hot... More

We went to la Scala only once and had a very good impression. We really liked the entreé, quatro formaggi, although I personally thought it was a bit expensive for the size of it. Then my husband had the pasta fresca dish which was excellent and I had the gnocchi del mare. Both dishes were suculent and tasty. The waitress... More

Second time to visit. We sat in the same area as before. In fact another couple came in and said the same thing. We dined on New Year's Eve. The food is amazing and the portions are large! A must stop if in area. Next time we will try the desserts, they looked wonderful!

We like La Scala, we are repeat customers. We love their veal dishes, lobster Mac and cheese, chicken Parmesan, spaghetti and meat balls! All taste great and you can tell the ingredients are fresh! Worth the Stop if you are in the mood for Italian!
