What Insiders Are Saying
La Scala is red sauce Italian in Beverly Hills - but you're really here for the chopped salad.
We picked the restaurant for its location close to the Wallis theater. It was a wonderful pre-theater experience. We had the famous chopped salad and our server guided our main dish selections. Based on the recommendation, I had the spaghetti ala conac. It was delicious with chopped shrimp in a conac pink sauce. Lots of old fashioned favorites, good cocktails, good ambiance and good service. We will be back.
This was our first visit after a matinee performance at the Wallis Annenberg. The La Scala chop salad and spaghetti bolognese were advertised. Will definitely be back.
Cozy, convivial and relaxing atmosphere. A little bit of a throwback but the crowd is very good. Comfortable seating in banquettes and booths. Tasty and dependable food.
It was perfection from beginning to end.
They were SO kind in quickly serving us, and the other couple of our foursome were detained and they were quickly served as well. Great food and service. Only complaint is that they did not mark down in 'open table' that we had checked in.
Waiter needed to be more experienced and better trained to be more accommodating. When asked to chill the red wine, he said that it would not be possible. We had to explain to him how and tried a few times to convince him to check until he did. Pretty frustrating. Finally, the chilled wine glass he brought to the table was wet all over and not very presentable.
The food was good and the service was excellent. The food is served hot....not warm or cold.
It is not sitting somewhere! I thought the overall value was great!!
Hard to beat shopping in BH and a nice dinner.
Other customers had dogs sitting under their table and it was really disgusting and we don’tl like dogs and it was walking around.
I have been a customer of La Scala for many years, but the entitled and snobbish attitude of members of the management has encouraged me to find another haunt. The food isn't that good. It's just a familiar place with a familiar salad. Simply not going back. There are better restaurants with better attitudes in Beverly Hills.
Waitress, who was young and inexperienced, didn't bring or offer water until we asked her near end of meal. Had to ask hail waitress and leaving main course for parmesian cheese instead of offering immediately.
It was memorable, a bit of the flavor of the original La Scala on Little Santa Monica, less of the star power, but more accessible. Excellent seafood and service.
Just not that great. Bread isn’t fresh. Salads have no flavor. Pasts is not wonderful.
We weren’t on the same page with the restaurant from the get-go. They were setting up for a private party and closing early and we were not informed. They were rushing throughout the dinner because their future obligations was obviously more important than the guests in front of them. They forgot some dishes, brought incorrect dishes and dishes that we added extras had to be fixed. I’m sure this place is a great establishment just bad timing.
Delicious food, great service and never feel rushed.
A standard go-to restaurant for old timers, locals and tourists. Has been around a long time but never gets old.
Great food - fresh ingredients I guess I am forced to type anything to meet the minimum characters requirement, which is dumb.
Our waiter was very slow never asked us if we wanted another drink. To other server that my prawns were stone cold and he answered me by saying the plate is hot and he will our server about this and than gave another server after my guests was almost finished with their dinner
Food was awful. Regular. Tasteless. Famous chopped salad was a large plate of chopped iceberg lettuce that was awful. Expecting a special dining experience. Dry, awful bread. Only good thing was the service he was amazing and so nice.
They were very accommodating with our time constraints & the food was delicious!!!
my wife and I have been dining with la scala for 35 years in Beverly HIlls and when they had a restaurant in Malibu. la scala has always been one of our favorites and we've NEVER had a bad meal. Hopefully we will continue dining at la scala for at least another 20 years!
I don’t know why the celebs are meant to flock here the food is well below average. Chicken meatballs are dry and don’t have much taste. The famed chopped salad is decent but drenched in vinegar Eggplant Parmesan was like a ready meal
Good service though, I can’t fault our waitress she was very nice
Our waiter was fabulous. Food was terrific. We ate outside and it was wonderful!
Terrible service. Left a smaller tip than we usually do. Fish was dry.
Best chopped salad ever!!!! I came from Florida for this twice during my stay!
We ordered wine by the glass. One of the wines had an awful tate.
The waitress did not do anything aout it.
The manager offered an exchange which we declined.
We were still charged for the unacceptable wine.
The vegetable and shrimp salad was great. Our waiter was exceptional.
No "love" in the food. Place used to be worth it. Ambiance is still nice but really, the food didn't knock us out this time.
Best chopped salad on the planet! Food and service Ben great love going there when in LA
Always enjoy the Gourmet Salad and Spaghetti Bolognese with the original old fashioned meat sauce.
La Scala has been around for many decades. This year we rediscovered it and this was our 3rd visit. Unfortunately, it will be our last. The ambiance is lovely and classy. However, they appear to be living on their old reputation. Three of the four in our party ordered a full size Italian Chopped Salad. It is what they have always been known for and nobody came close to making one this good. Not any more. They were skimpy on the salami; the salad was boring. Even Leon's dressing couldn't save it. If you want it like they used to make it, go to Emilio's in Encino, which was a La Scala many, many years ago. They do it right. I had a pasta dish, one that is featured on most Italian menus. It was second rate. Good-bye La Scala.
Empfehlung kam von Hotel Consierge und passte sehr gut. Liegt zwar nah am Rodeo Drive passt aber vom Preis / Leistungsverhäktnis. Sehr leckeres Essen, tolle Atmosphäre.
I like the restaurant very much, eat there very often, and often book through Open Table. Why am I no longer gaining open table points when I book?
I’ve always had great service at La Scala in the past, but the waiter this time was not good. He was slow, didn’t pay attention to the diners and wasn’t on top of bringing food out. Another waiter was kind enough to bring our food out. Even with this, it wasn’t hot when it got to the table. I’m sure it would have been cold as ice if we waited for our waiter to serve the food.
When we booked on open table I indicated that it was our fourth anniversary. Nobody ever wrote back to me and when we got to the restaurant nobody seem to know anything about it
Very old and quite crowd. Service was slow. Food was good. Recommend for casual family dinner.
Consistently my favorite restaurant in Beverly Hills and the best Italian restaurant in Los Angeles.
We appreciated our server, salads are always good, but my pasta was not so good. We had desert and it was super
Tourist restaurant, very busy with small tables.
Portions are big but quality is not great, only the name is Italian.
Service was less than desirable. We were seated and two other people who were seated after us got their orders taken. I think they were disorganized and missed us. I hope that was the case. Even when we gave our orders, it took quite a while to get our dinner. Maybe, it was just a bad night for them. Certainly, if you have a lot of time to pass, it may be ok, but at least we should be getting bread, drinks or something to pass the time. I do want to mentioned that the food was excellent. For that I would go back and give them another opportunity to provide better service. Both my wife's dinner and mine were excellent. She had the pasta and I had the veal chop. They were both well-done. We did not get to sample the dessert as it was quite late by the time we finished dinner (slow service). Yes, I will go back but will make sure not to expect too much on service. Hopefully, we will be pleasantly surprised.
