The food was outstanding with a real emphasis on fresh ingredients. The staff was pleasant and knowledgable, attentive but not hoveing. The location is great for walking to other downtown venues. We will definitely add it to our list of favorites. They have outdoor seating which would be great when the weather warms.

We enjoy coming to La Scala on occasion. The restaurant sits across from the pretty courthouse and is nice to eat on the patio during cooperative weather. Parking is always a bit of pain as it is downtown. Additionally, if you are here in the winter - do not accept a table near the front of the restaurant. Every time the door opens a burst of cold air hits you and is quite annoying.

Had a business meeting for lunch and the Lafayette folks suggested this place I had never knew about since we live 30 miles away. What a great fond...server (Jeff) was above par...he knew the menu and was what every owner wants in his/her employees....food was remarkable and prices and serving size was way more then you would think...all I can say is this is now my new favorite Italian restaurant in Lafayette!

We enjoyed a family dinner on a Friday evening. Making reservations online was very easy. The restaurant was quite crowded at 6 PM and tables are squeezed quite close to each other making it a bit of a challenge to not bump into other diners. The menu offers a lot of appealing options. Our food was good except for one dish arriving cool and needing to be sent back for warming. Our server seemed a bit overwhelmed to keep up with everything. Overall, this was a good meal for the price.

This is a nice place to have dinner.
Local crowd, lot of regular customers.
Food is good and fresh, most of the menu is italien, lot of pasta dishes.
Limited choice in wine.
Service is good, mostly students, not real professional, they do their best.
It would be nice if the guy with the dirty dishes cart does not run throug the restuarant as a thunder train slamming doors.
Kitchen staff a bit mor quiet with the dishes and it would be real nice.
Will go back for the food.
