“La Scala in Fels Point, Balt is bella, bella, bella”
Reviewed April 13, 2014

My wife and I and 3 other couples dined recently in this lovely restaurant located in the historic Fels Point Little Italy district. You can easily drive to it or take the convenient water taxi from the Inner Harbor to Fels Point and then walk to the restaurant.

The restaurant is spacious with seating upstairs, on the main floor including the bar and a lovely 2nd floor al fresco dining area.

So now about the food - Excellente! Some of our group had the pasta bolognese, putanesca, swordfish and I had a butterflied lamb chop - oh so good! The menu is deep and wide ranging and the wine list is very large with many Italian wines reasonably priced and others too.

Service was prompt and professional.

I can highly recommend this restaurant to you, and you too will exclaim that it is meraviglioso (wonderful)!

Enjoy!

Ciao!

“Excellent food and service!”
Reviewed March 27, 2014

the service and food was delicious! There was a friendly and hospital atmosphere from when you walked through the door to when you exited. Also there was car service by George back and forth to the hotel which was great!

“Good Food...and Bocce!”
Reviewed March 26, 2014

We were a party of four and had a reservation and went right to our table on a busy weekday evening. Seems every day is busy and we know why. Our waiter was very gracious and took drink orders immediately which we appreciated. The chef/owner stopped by and chatted with us for several minutes. Very impressive and very personable. He took our orders, all customized, and checked back to make sure we were happy. The cheese and meat platter was followed by a homemade grilled Caesar Salad and our individual entrees. Born and raised Italian, I am tough on Italian restaurants and being a New Yorker, I can be a snob. But this was great! Mom was away so there were no cannoli's (ask when you get there), but George gives you a lift back to the hotel. Do not miss this jewel in Little Italy.

“Good Eats”
Reviewed March 23, 2014

Went on a Friday night with a party of 7.
The grilled octopus, recommended by the waiter, was awesome. The bruschetta and artichoke and crab were equally delicious. A few hiccups - my daughter wanted chicken piccata instead of veal. She was presented with 2 large chicken pieces instead of medallions - so it just wanted the same. They also don't serve pasta with any of their dishes - which we thought was odd - and if you get a side of pasta - it's penne with marinara. If you want something other than that - it's an up charge - really....for spaghetti. So while all of our meals were really delicious - we just thought the pasta thing a bit odd. Too full for dessert!
