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.

Truly delicious entrees. (Very boring iced tea. Skip the tea. Terrible bread. Refuse the bread.) Otherwise, a great place. Wonderful low light, perfect decor (booths!), excellent atmosphere. Don’t miss the penne arrabbiata.

If you don’t like your food because you order vodka pasta and they put dill in it but your 8 old orders it so didn’t look at that and tell them you don’t like. They won’t take back and give you something else. I had to beg the manager. I have been to thousands of better places that would never say no to a customer. Food was eh.

Didn't have the best experience here. Our waiter was hard to find throughout the meal. We didn't have enough silverware and had to flag down someone to bring more. The caprese salad was blah, with the wrong type of tomatoes and nothing on it. We had to ask for them to bring over some olive oil and balsamic to dress it. My chicken was delivered cold - not cold as in lukewarm or not hot enough, but refrigerator cold. They probably precook and reheat some of the food, which is fine, but at least heat it through. When I told the waiter he asked if he should tell the chef to put it back in the oven. Uh, I guess. Why ask me? Whatever he has to do to make it edible; let him figure it out. Took a while for it to come back out so the rest of my party was done eating. Barely got a half-hearted apology. Very dark. Lots of restaurants in the area, they should make more of an effort if they want return customers.

This restaurant never disappoints. It is a beautiful restaurant and the service and food is good. Reservations are recommended. We live in the Valley and the extra driving time is always worth it. Not like restaurants in the Valley, the don't close early. It seems the later you go the more action there is. Always a fun night!

Arrived early, greeted graciously. Waiter was very friendly, provided terrific service. Busboy did an excellent job keeping our water and ice tea glasses always full and received a $5 side tip, thank you.
Ordered the old standards, the chopped salad and spaghetti Bolognese, delicious.
Very nice evening.

A classic Italian restaurant very close to the Wallis Annenberg theater. Great pasta and the halibut was an amazing value. Definitely worth the trip.

La Scala is always a reliable place to go in Beverly Hills. My veal al limone was very tasty. My friends both had pasta and were satisfied. The service went beyond the usual, our server was very attentive to our requests.

The food was a huge disappointment. The lobster ravioli in sage butter was tasteless and the sage butter seemed just to be oil rather than sage butter. The homemade pasta was nothing special. Also, I was seated under the AC and it made for a very uncomfortable meal as the cold air was blasting my left side to the point it made my ear hurt.

Terrible terrible experience! I will never go back! We usually go to il Pastaio but it was crowded and thought we would give it another try. No one would bring us water after we requested it several times. The Bartender came over to our table and opened a bottle of wine (I did not order but thought he was giving me a taste since I didn't like the options) after I taste the wine he asks me how I liked it. I told him not very good but thanks for letting me try it. His reply was this is staying on your check you ordered it, too bad. I responded no I did not order a bottle of wine... he continued to argue with me until he realized he had made the mistake of bringing the bottle to the wrong table. Then he talked to our waiter who told him the bottle was for the table next to us. The bartender then proceeded to go over to their table and poured them each a taste from the same bottle he already opened for me. They were upset that he had opened their bottle and poured me a taste and also expressed that the wine was terrible and corked. No apologies regarding the way I was spoken to or the way it was handled. The manager didn't seem to care and when I complained to corporate office the director of operations Ken argued with me and hung up on me. A customer should never be treated this way. We also waited over 45 minutes for our dinner to be served which was not very good. Unacceptable.

La Scala is our go-to for amazing, authentic Italian cuisine. The staff is always accommodating. And it's near the Wallis Theater so it's perfect for pre-show dining. We went with some special friends we hadn't seen in awhile, and had the most wonderful time. Never had the feeling of being rushed. And we spotted a few celebs!

I was very excited to try La Scala, as it is a classic LA establishment. However, the food did not live up to my expectations. I got a pasta, and the noodles were cooked well past al dente. I would have expected a classic, authentic Italian place to serve al dente noodles -- maybe they cook them softer for their Beverly Hills clientele. It was not however, a horrible experience. I sat outside I really enjoyed the people and car watching!

When I arrived my guest, who had been seated, was involved in an argument with the staff and insisted that we leave. They were rude and haughty with her. I’m not sure what had happened before I got there but clearly it was not good. We ate at a restaurant up the street and I will not be returning to La Scala

It has been several years since I last visited LaScala. We were seated near the front door on a chilly rainy day and my guest ask to change seats because she was cold. You would have thought that they would instantly be accommodating. There was a big production that included the maitre’d and at first they said that it was not possible even though the restaurant was only a third full. When we said we needed to go else where they then found something. The rest of the evening was okay. Food was warm but not hot.

Was worried about La Scala being some snobby Beverly Hills restaurant. It was quite the opposite. A beautiful, friendly, well-priced Italian restaurant. The food was excellent and the ambiance was very nice- classy and comfortable. We are already planning to return. I highly recommend it.
