“Best local pizza.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2012 via mobile

Commack resident for 20 years. This is by far the best pizzeria for miles. There are PLENTY of choices in the area including a Mario's across the street (which is good in its own right) but this place is a gem. Same people working there for many years. Quality is consistent and always excellent.

This review is for the pizzeria only, not the restaurant.

“Great Find”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2012 via mobile

I must have passed this restaurant hundreds of times always thinking it is a pizza place. The truth is that once you get past the pizza part there is an excellent restaurant. My veal dish was delicious. My wife's pasta dish was excellent. The salad that we split was quite good. The staff was friendly and attentive. This is now going to be a regular place for us. Also if I just want to have a slice of pizza I can't to try La Scala's pizza.

“3 out of 3 nights”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2012

What can I say? Apparently we are not very adventurous and/or when we find something we like, we stick with it!

We were here for a sporting event and stumbled in for dinner our first night. And our 2nd and our 3rd!

Outstanding Italian food/friendly and welcoming/great value. A treat for those of us who don't live somewhere with lots of outstanding Italian options.

Very family friendly. We saw multi-generations dining and a mix of casual and slightly more dressed up.

Wish we lived nearby!

We recently moved to the area and were delighted to discover this gem. The food is simply unbelievable. The service is impeccable. The menu is extensive. And the price is right.

“Great pizza and worth the wait!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2012

Our family was staying locally and unsure of where to get some great NY style pizza. LaScala was recommended by the hotel staff where we were staying. LaScala has sit down service and take out. We opted for the take out. On this particular Friday night, LaScala was extremely busy but worth every minute of waiting. Pizza was delicious!
