La Scala Italian Restaurant
excellent food, excellent serviceMy husband surprised me for my birthday by taking me to La Scala to eat with friends! We are both picky when it comes to restaurants, and both of us absolutely loved the food! I had the salmon with spinach, sun dried tomatoes, squash, and zucchini served over pasta - delicious! We spent over an hour and a half eating chatting with our friends and didn't feel at all rushed. The waiter was very energetic and kind. He even found a place in the freezer for the ice cream that I had brought with me (not knowing we were going out to eat) and brought it back at the end of our meal :). I highly recommend this restaurant!5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderfulI love La Scala. When my fiance finished his program I wanted to take him out to a great meal and I told him to pick anywhere in town. He picked La Scala. It is a bit expensive for us typically (the other times we'd visited we'd been treated by friends) but since it was a special day it was fine. He ordered the chef's special and loved it, while I had a fruity salad for which they were very accommodating, adding and removing items. Our server was sweet and helpful with the menu, and overall we have a marvelous time. It did ring up to be a bit expensive, but the quality of the food is worth every dime. It's somewhere to go in town for a nicer, delicious meal. We also shared a cup of tomato basil soup and some bruschetta- both were SO good!5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMSaturday night dateThe food was delicious. The atmosphere was great. Our waiter was Brandon an he was excellent. Never had to wait for anything. My glass of water an coke was always full an the food was brought out every fast. I would recommend la scala to all of my friends.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMLa Scala ItalianMy family all thought the food was excellent. The service was decent. Other than not receiving one of our appetizers the service was very good. We will return to La Scala.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMUnexpected delightFor our 30th anniversary we decided to try La Scala, a local restaurant to which we had never been even though it has been around for about 12 years. It was a delight in every way. Our special occasion was elegant, the service and professionalism of the servers was superb, the food offerings were more extensive than we could have imagined in a small family-owned establishment, and the quality and quantity of the food was impressive. We will definitely go there again, perhaps to try their lunch menu. We were very pleased and will remember this anniversary because of the wonderful time we had there.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMI travel, and Italian is aI travel, and Italian is a cuisine that you tend to find everywhere - but mediochre. La Scala is the exception. Nice varied menu. Gret commitment to sustainable farming for the meats and veggies. I have been here 2-3 times now. The veal saltimbocca and piccata is great. The carbonara was wonderful too. Wait staff knows the menu and knows what's good. Get the tomato/basil soup any time it rains. :)5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat restaurant!Food was delicious! Service was outstanding! We sat on the outside patio and it was a beautiful evening.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ambiance and awesome serverOur server was really nice and helpful. He was always around to refill drinks and make sure everything was going well. The atmosphere in the restaurant is very nice. Overall, it is a good experience, but only good for special occasions because it can be pretty pricey.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful Special Evening DiningMy wife and I plus two neighbors enjoyed a special evening of superb dining at La Scala Restaurant.
My Cioppino (seafood stew) was excellent and the other three diners had an outstanding Seafood Mediterranean ( shrimp and scallops sautéed with herbs and asparagus with a brandy cream sauce over linguini). We topped the meal off
with some authentic Gelato. Service was friendly and efficient. Ambiance enabled good quiet conversation at table.
Excellent value for the meal.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious Dinner for our GroupWe had a party of 7 for a celebratory dinner, and our server was fantastic (even when a few of our dinner party members were slow to make decisions about their orders). All the dishes were delicious, but we especially loved the Fontina Fruit Salad and Butternut Risotto!5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMLa Scala has great food, maybeLa Scala has great food, maybe the best restaurant food in Lafayette. The problem is the sound level. The noise is so loud it can be impossible to have a conversation.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMReally good food, and I likeReally good food, and I like that it's locally sourced. They tend to pack you in like sardines at the dinner hour. We were recently there for my husband's birthday dinner, and were a little disappointed that they would not honor the birthday dessert offer that they had emailed us, because we had not printed it out on a piece of paper. Their theory is that people can present the coupon on a smart phone as many times as they want, but they would only print it out once, so requiring a paper copy would keep people from cheating. Um, yeah . . .4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMService was great! Food veryService was great! Food very good. We are coming back to try more of the menu.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Italian restaurant in areaFood is always delicious and made with fresh ingredients. Much better than all the Italian chains. Nice to have a privately owned restaurant here.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMThis restaurant is fantastic.This restaurant is fantastic. Authentic Italian Gourmet! Dinner is a presentation!
I was born and raised by Italian parents, and I can tell you the food is definitely fantastic.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMFavorite spot in town.My girlfriend and I choose La Scala whenever we are celebrating a special occasion, it is our favorite restaurant in town. If we went to La Scala together, you and I, I would force you to get the sorbet truffle. It is the best dessert you will ever have. The bread with the meal is amazing, and the menu is broad and everything we have ordered has been tremendous. Do not order an appetizer! Between salad, bread (Which they refill free of charge if asked), dinner, and the requisite dessert, you will be plenty full without an appetizer.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMI have been to La Scala twiceI have been to La Scala twice now and loved it both times. It was recommended to me and I would recommend it to anyone else. This time I invited several people that hadn't been there before and they loved it too. We had a large party of 12 and the service was still great!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AM4/6/13 Our La Scala meal4/6/13 Our La Scala meal was the best Italian meal we have ever eaten. We were given all the time we needed to review their extensive menu (recommend checking it out online beforehand if you have the opportunity). Starters were served amazingly fast and the timing of the entrees was spot on. Food was absolutely delicious. This was our first visit and we will definitely return! Our favorite entree of the 5 of us was Antonelle's Favorites.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Ravioli Florentine withThe Ravioli Florentine with Shrimp was divine. Highly recommended!4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMCannoli was delicious, asCannoli was delicious, as were our entrees. A great place for young, sexually active lovers.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Italian FoodExcellent Italian food. The Salmon was superb. We live in Chicago and have been to Italy numerous times. The dishes here would challenge even the best restaurants from these 2 locations. Our waiter Kirt was outstanding, knowledgeable and attentive. I would go out of my way to eat here. Thank you for a great evening.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMLa Scala never ceases to please.La Scala never ceases to please. Wish we had one in Detroit.I had salmon with gluten free pasta. The sauce with capers was excellent3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Greatness of La ScalaGreat restaurant, great food, great time out! If you have not been yet, your are missing out!3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWaiters knew about all theWaiters knew about all the products on the menu from appetizers to wine. I was impressed with the assistance we received when asking about various types of wine on the menu, and even more so with what we picked. Overall, the experience was fantastic, and I will definitely be returning.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a delightful anniversaryWe had a delightful anniversary dinner there with friends. We are on the email list and had a coupon for a free appetizer as a gift for our anniversary. We were seated promptly upon arrival. Service was great and the food was wonderful. I highly recommend La Scala for an authentic Italian meal done by a local chef using the freshest ingredients available.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMFriendly, warm and welcomingFriendly, warm and welcoming - the staff is knowledgeable about the menu and obviously has good customer service as a goal. Food presentation was a bit on rustic side, but the quality of the food made up for the lack of "eye appeal".3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMfirst timer and loved itFirst time customer and it was wonderful. I had ordered flowers for my table and they were there waiting. Food was fantastic as was the wine. Would definitely go back when in town again. Staff was friendly and not too over the top bothersome. Highly recommended3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMLa Scala is wonderful!My first experience at La Scala was with a large group of 13 people. The online reservation system was incredibly efficient and easy to use. Make sure to reserve a table early, as they do go quick! Being from New York and of good Italian stock, I'm very cautious when I try new Italian restaurants. I've eaten at some of the best Italian joints in NYC, and I have to say, La Scala competes hands down. I ordered Antonella's Favorite with a cannolo for dessert. The portions are gracious, the ingredients are top notch, and staff is friendly, even if you are the last table of the night. I highly recommend La Scala for small dates or larger group dinners.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food. I really appreciatedGreat food. I really appreciated their emphasis on using local ingredients, not just with vegetables, but with meat as well.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
