I had been here twice shortly after it opened years ago. ?It was just okay. A recent visit convinced me to never go again. Four of us dined. Chicken Cacciatore was horrible. I ate less than half. No tomato sauce whatsoever, but in it's place, a burned tasting something. Another had lasagna. Said it was equally horrible and very dry.... More

Years ago, this was the Bungalow - a terrific restaurant that drew large crowds. It closed, and it's now La Scola. The menu is primarily Italian. The decor has been completely re-done and does not resemble the cozy Bungalow in any way. To be candid, the food is overpriced, and it's relatively marginal. The biggest faux pas is the pasta....

We (15 of us) visited this past Saturday with our dinner group of friends. The food was very good including fresh bread with olive oil. The service was great, even with our large party. Gus, one of the owners was cordial as usual. This is a nice restaurant and one of my favs in Toledo.

Not terrible, just not good. The service wasn't great, felt very unwelcome and bothersome to the hostess and bartender, even though it was dinnertime. Ordered the sole feature and it was pretty flavorless and very overcooked. It's such a delicate fish normally, but it was actually crispy and dry.

We had a surprise dinner party with a party of 13. The hostess (Brooke) was awesome! She worked with us to help get our guest of honor to the table where we all were without them knowing. Our server (Tina) was awesome! She was great and kept everything running so smoothly with our huge group. The baked brie was amazing...as... More

The food was fresh made and was excellent. The service was impeccable. The chef was able to accommodate changes in the entrees to match the diner's requests. This establishment is focused on dining and it shows. We will definitely return.

The variety of dishes is quite good. My husband and I both enjoyed our meals but mine was a little bland, surprising because it had garlic and red pepper flakes according to the menu. I could see and taste the garlic but no heat and flavor from red pepper flakes. The soup spoon was dirty, clearly had hardened parsley on... More
