Had a business dinner here. There were three of us and the food, service, atmosphere, etc. were first rate. Pricing is not unreasonable considering the level of quality overall. Highly recommend. Try the Veal Picatta!

Plan ahead,... More

We had a great evening at La Scala with our 13 year old son. The veal was amazing, service top notch. Then we go down to the indoor bocchi ball court. My son had a great time beating Dad! We finished the evening with homemade lemon and chocolate canolli's. They were the best canolli's we have ever had. Great night... More

Everything was awesome from the service to the food. The waiters were amazing, the variety of wines were impressive and the wait wasn't long at all. I'm definitely coming back .

I made dinner reservations at La Scala based on a recommendation from a friend. I was not disappointed. The service here is top notch and the pasta is delicious. The atmosphere is quaint and cozy.

The food, the staff , the charm was exceptional... Because of it's location. Do the valet parking or take a taxi. The grilled Caesar Salad is amazing. No matter what you order it is wonderful.

The folks at the reception table were very helpful and friendly. Atmosphere was a bit noisy for us, although it looked like there were some quiet spots. Food was fine, but not spectacular.

Thank Robert S
