Great venue with delicious food and professional staff. Our family event was handled flawlessly. The cranberry roasted pork-loin so good, as was the garlic mashed potatoes. Last time I had Italian food this good was in Italy. Would book again.

I have always enjoyed this restaurant but my experience this past weekend has now changed all of that...I decided that as a romantic dinner, we would double date with friends of ours at La Scala's Frank Sinatra evening. It was to be a great night and we were told that having a table of 4 would not be a problem.... More

So, The Sinatra Valentine Dinner Event: Ok.... if someone had told me i was going to pay $50 per person, plus tax, plus a 20% tip.... on top of any alcohol and other drinks I purchase at the event (also charging me a 20% tip!) .... and be sitting in a bad "wedding reception" environment.... holy cow...I would have run...

We have been to LaScala several times and they are consistently good for Italian in the area. It is a very large restaurant so there is usually no problem getting a table pretty quickly. The food is typically good and the service is usually very good as well. There were 7 of us last night and all the meals were... More

We enjoy coming here for dinner with friends. The food is excellent and atmosphere is very retro and classic. Live pianist is a wonderful addition. Favorite items are meatballs, ravioli and lasagne!

The service was good, the opera salad excellent, the shrimp and scallop pasta disappointingly bland and overpriced. Had a private party in a back room which was void of any decoration (the main restaurant is beautiful) and they tried to add a room charge of $80! Too many other good Itaiian restaurants in Columbus, I will not be back anytime... More

Our daughter flew into Columbus for the weekend, we went for an early dinner to La Scala. Service was excellent; it's easy to see that this restaurant is very busy most of the time, the servers really move. My wife had a pumpkin spice martini, she enjoyed it. Food is plentiful, mostly traditional Italian. I had the veal parm, a... More

I've been eating here for decades. Since, I've moved away, but we return to dine with La Scala's every time we return to Dublin, Ohio. Last Saturday evening we enjoyed yet another GREAT meal at La Scala. The food was wonderful. The band was really good. The hustle of the entire staff is impressive. That being said; our service was... More

We ate earlier in the evening and still the dining room was pretty full. Our server afforded us plenty of time and attention, made excellent recommendations, and our food was delicious. I do wish they would serve bread with butter, garlic or otherwise, or oil and vinegar but it was good none the less. Will go again.
