Thinking this was an authentic Italian eatery, hight rated by Trip Advisor, we went to La Scala last weekend. Let me say up front, it was fine. But, just fine. Not spectacular. The food was okay, but had a definitely American fee to it. Don't get me wrong, it was better than Olive Garden, but, based on the reviews and... More

Nice wine list, both by bottle and glass. Did not have a starter because we ordered three different pastas and they were great. Are waiter was ok, I'm sure there are others that are better

Took my wife to La Scala for her birthday. We had never been and heard good things. It lived up to everything we had heard. The food was really good. It was prepared well and the portion sizes were good. The service was also excellent. The only thing that keeps this from a 5 star rating for me (really, I... More

My wife and I went for an early seating for my birthday. Got worried that the first two wine selections were sold out but the Manager offered something else for the same price. Fantastic Italian wine! Fresh bread to the table. Followed by Calamari Fritti as an app. Lightly breaded, fried...very good. We shared grilled Caesar salad. That's a must... More

Excellent restaurant that we accidentially stumbled upon while visiting our daughter at school. We were celebrating my moms birthday!! Looks like a small beautiful brownstone from the outside but once inside the rooms are endless. They even have an indoor bocce court!!! Food and wait staff were top notch and very friendly!!

Great atmosphere and super friendly staff; very attentive. I ordered without looking at the menu and was immediately told they didn't serve lasagna. Apparently it's not Italian. Hey, I come from the Midwest, what do I know!?

We went for dinner to this restaurant after reading reviews. The food and wine was godd but the prices are pretty hefty. The desert was phenomenal though. I would recommend especially if it's a business trip.

In the past 9 months I have had to travel to Baltimore for surgery. Every time I go I stay at the renessance, One of the wonderful things about this restaurant is that they have a shuttle that will come to the hotel and pick you up, bring you to the restaurant for dinner, and bring you back to the...

My wife and I toured Baltimore all day on a very hot and humid Saturday, prior to attending the Ravens game the next day. After taking the Charm City Circulator from the Inner Harbor, we found our way to Eastern Ave and asked for a table for 2. My wife ordered a Pinot Grigio. I wanted a light draft beer,... More

Three of us ate at La Scala after a long day at the convention center. Everything was exceptional. We had an antipasto that was delicious. They brought us a plate of beans and potatoes when we sat down - might not sound good but I sure would like to recreate this. I had a special of gnocchi with a lamb... More
