We ordered table outside, which is perfect for absorbing the lively atmosphere in Trastevere! The waiters were nice, but it all took time. But this is "normal" for Italy and Rome. And in this restaurant you are waiting for good food! We had beef which was well prepared!

Tip: Order some multiple side-dishes to share. This way you can experience more of the roman kitchen. The side-dishes brings more taste than expected!!
Ultimate tip: Order a table outside in good time. The outdoor seating have a scenic view of a small piazza with its life. You see a lot of funny things and people in Tastevere!

We came to this restaurant on the back of Trip advisor reviews .

We had a very cheerful italian waitress who gave us fantastic recomendations .

The lobster pasta and the fresh whole fish are fantastic .

A full meal for 4 including a bottle of wine was ?150 . Great value .. We paid much more in rome for much less.

We strongly recommend and we shall be back on our next visit to Rome.

We had our second meal here in the last month and the quality was excellent both times.
We had a variety of dishes between 5 people. Mainly seafood but one had fillet steak as main.
Plenty to eat on each plate in fact a little too much for the girls which meant I got a taste of most things for future reference.Everything was very fresh and well cooked with great tastes.
If you like authentic Roman food this is one to try rather than some of the fast food options in the neighbourhood.

La Scala Restaurant is in one of the prime sections of Trastevere, with lots of foot traffic. There is seating outdoors and indoors, and the pace of dining is slow. Plan on spending 40 euro per person for a three course meal with a decent wine.

Went here on the recommendation of our hotel. We went on a Wednesday night and had a booking which was good as it was packed. We walked in and waited some time to even be acknowledged. Got a table outside which was nice on a warm evening but the tables are quite cramped together. Took a long time for our orders to be taken. My husband had burrata cheese truffle starter and I had Parma ham and melon. We were both happy with our choices. For mains we had steak and escalopes. Very average. Didn't even ask how my husband wanted his steak cooked. Food not bad or good. Just ok. Everything about this place is just average. In saying that the table next to us ordered a truffle ravioli that looked amazing. No idea how it tasted but wish we would have ordered that.
