Italian
A legacy of Jean Leon nostalgically lies in the heart of Beverly Hills. Migrating from Spain's Bayonne Basque Country at age seventeen; setting sights on a new life in the United States. In 1956 Jean Leon's passion for good food and wine fueled what is now the lifeblood of La Scala. Maintaining the heritage instilled by Jean Leon, La Scala of Beverly Hills offers a classic Italian fine dining experience with a variety of exquisite traditional Italian cuisine, fine wines, cocktails, and desserts.

Food was nice, but pasta isn’t anything extraordinary. Not bad, but nor great either, just an average Italian cafe. Kinda pricy for what it is.

I was disappointed that we had to wait 45 minutes for a table I made a reservation for on my birthday. No one seemed to care- I at the very least thought we’d get a free round of drinks but nothing.

I love La Scala. The shipped salad is one of my favorite meals in LA. But last night’s experience was disappointing, to say the least. Our waiter was either overwhelmed by the sheer number of tables or had never waited tables before or both. It was hard to get his attention. Ordering a glass of wine took nearly ten minutes. I took a sip and it tasted funny to me and I asked if I could swap it out for something else and he said I would have to pay for it. I don’t make it a habit of sending food back so it took a little courage to ask. Never heard that before. Reader, I drank the bad wine..

The bread cake and it was hard.

It took another 29 minutes to get the guys attention to order food. The chopped salad was great as always. But the whole dining experience took forever—and not in a good way.

Maybe it was because I ate at Craig’s the night before, where the staff make you feel like family, that this experience was so weird and jarring. Maybe I just need to order my salad to go:

I have been coming to this restaurant for years and always have good meal. The chopped salad is the best. But, on this visit, when I used the restroom I was disgusted. It was not clean. Paper towels all over the floor and clearly the washroom had not been cleaned for hours. I found it a real turnoff. The staff should find a way to regularly clean the facilities so that customers do not have to endure unsanitary conditions.

I ordered chicken with Artichoke and it came smothered in a thick dark sauce. It filled the plate and everything was swimming in it. Not at all what one expects Puréed vegetable soup was very good . The Waiter was friendly but he had too many tables to cover. Hostess was nice and gave us a great booth.

Hadn’t been for a long time
But Re tried it again as a pre theater Wallis Annenberg dinner with friends
And though their classic chopped salad was a huge over dressed disappointment - the rest of the meal was spot on- especially the lovely pan seared Halibut- delicious ( as was the service and the ambiance )

If you're looking for an authentic Italian restaurant with the ole Italian restaurant ambiance and that has Excellent food, Excellent service, Outstanding wine list, and is conveniently located in the heart of Beverly Hills this is the place! If you like seafood, try the crabcakes for an appetizer and the Salmon as an entree,
it is Outstanding.

Vodka drinkers beware! I ordered a cosmopolitan with well vodka. My husband ordered a Hendricks gin martini. His drink turned out to be $13.50, a very fair price. Mine was $17 with well vodka!! Outrageous! Look, I enjoy the ambiance and food and service here. It is a very pleasant place to have a meal. But I was gobsmacked by the overcharge of my drink. So my advice to all of you who enjoy a cocktail is to ask the prices before you order so you don’t get an ugly surprise when the bill comes.

They made us wait for about 30 to 40 minutes and we had a reservation. The host was very rude and inexperienced. The service was very mediocre. The waitress was grouchy. I called in advance to see if I could bring a bottle of champagne to which they responded yes there was a $25 corkage fee. When I arrive they told me that I couldn’t bring the type of champagne that I brought because they sold it. They should have told me that on the phone.
