I am not a fan of over paying for food on the Strip so I look for nearby spots that get me to more 'local' restaurants that are worth the trip. After reading other reviews about La Scala, I decided to give it a try. I'm glad I did.
The food was wonderful, and portions were plentiful. The fried calamari was the best I've had in years: lightly breaded, fresh, and cooked perfectly; the lasagna was a bit soupy in cheese and sauce and still excellent; and the stuffed pork tenderloin was over-the-top delicious and too large a portion to finish. The service polite, timely, helpful, and appreciative.
The only demerits are for the ambiance...the restaurant decor is a bit dated...and value... the wine is too expensive relative to the balance of the menu. I may be a bit harsh here as our total bill for 4 including tip was only $260 and that was for 2 bottles, 3 apps, 3.5 entrees, 1 dessert and 1 coffee.
Finally, be aware that because La Scala is off the strip, getting a cab back to our hotel was a bit of a problem. Despite a call by the staff, we still waited 20 minutes for a cab.
I will definitely return. It's a great deal compared to the Strip alternatives.
