Description: You don't get more San Francisco than Scala's, located just off the Powell Street cable car line, steps from Union Square. And with great location comes great responsibility: that's why we work hard to maintain our reputation as one of the city's most essential dining destinations by creating an atmosphere as sophisticated and inviting as the food we bring to the table.

The highlight of my dining experience at Scala's was definitely the service. Our server was clearly enthusiastic and passionate about his job. He was helpful in wine and food selection and very attentive. We had a nice experience and great tasting food and drinks.

Very old world European charm. Great services. I thought the menu for breakfast and dinner a bit limited. Food was good - not outstanding, but enjoyable.

We were lucky on our first dinner in SF to wander in this beautifully decorated restaurant. We liked the food very much. The waiter was very friendly and attentive. The food was excellent. We had nice fresh pasta and an excellent fish plate.
We very much recommend this restaurant.

The food is superb. The value is also good. The wine list is excellent. Our server took care of our group with great grace and good humor. She guided the flow of the meal perfectly to suit the activities we were sharing around the table--conversation, baby-sharing, gift presentations. Every one of us was comfortable, relaxed, and made to feel appreciated. We ate in the semi-private room downstairs--a perfect location for a family needing a place to have a special party.
