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

We celebrated my sons birthday, September 5, 2016. It was a table of 6 people. Service food and drinks were served with the outmost delight! It was a great time. My son had the filet mignonette which he enjoyed very much! Thank you for a great time!

While spending the weekend in Baltimore my wife and I, along with friends, returned to La Scala. It had been a couple of years since our last visit but thought it deserving of a return. We were not disappointed. We started with an assortment of appetizers ( bruschetta, antipasto, stuffed mushrooms) all being very enjoyable. Everyone enjoyed their meal ranging... More

We were here with a group and really enjoyed the place. It was fancy enough to have a nice intimate dinner, but casual enough to not be fussy. They had a great bar area and the food was very upscale and authentic. If we didn't live out of town it would be a regular restaurant for us. And to also... More

Large group. Easily accommodated. Great service staff. Bocce ball court in basement. What more could you ask for? Oh ... A tremendous wine selection, fantastic menu selection and a great Italian family atmosphere. Lobster in vodka sauce over penne. Boom!

We found La Scala "by accident" a few years ago and fell in love with it. It's our "go-to" place for anniversaries and birthdays and celebrations. It's comfort food with style. The pastas are homemade, the bread fresh and crunchy, and the veal dishes are amazing. Their Alfredo sauce is delicious without being cloying. I always ask for garlic in... More

This is real Italian with world class food and service, but the atmosphere is friendly neighborhood as well. I was blown away by the bocce ball court in a sort of open basement of one of the combined rowhouses making up this overall beautiful space on the edge of Baltimore's Little Italy. The food was mostly Northern (tomatoes) Italian, good... More

Enjoyed dinner and the service was very good. We had the antipasta of meats and cheeses, which was great. Everyone loved their entrees and desserts. Got a spot right out front, which is always nice.
