What Insiders Are Saying
La Scala is red sauce Italian in Beverly Hills - but you're really here for the chopped salad.
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.
Date had 1/2 chicken and side of linguini, I had whitefish. Both were delicious. Martini was perfect, wine list ample. Friendly service. We go there often, never disappointed.
My wife ordered a wine that was suggested by the server. Not her liking after one sip. Server refused to take it off the biNo apologies whatsoever. Scorching hot in the restaurant making dining very unenjoyable. Server curt and not at all attentive. Have eaten there many times before, but this will be the last time...
It was a most unpleasant experience and we will never go back! The waitress and manager were rude and uncaring. I will relate my experience to all of our frienda
Great food and overall ambience! I enjoyed my dinner tremendously.
They do everything just right. An old school favorite with great service.
Authentic old school Italian, superb food our server was amazing! Fantastic ambiance
Horrible service. Horrible food. Terrible management. Treat regulars like dirt. Won’t be back. So many others to choose from.
The ribeye steak was thin, tough and full of gristle.
The waiter offered us dessert before we even received our main course
The place was mostly empty, the supposed famous chopped salad was good; not great by any means.
Brought the wrong appetizer 2 straight times
Waiter was lost
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.
Always great! Thank you La Scala!
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.
One of my favorites, esp. for martinis, fish, eggplant, and chopped salad. Great place before theatre at the Annenberg.
Great food and service!
The service was wonderful and the food delicious. You can have a conversation and actually hear the rest of your party! We shared the chopped salad which was excellent and I had the chicken Romano and my husband had the eggplant Parmesan. Both were delicious! We will definitely be coming back.
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.
We enjoyed a table on the sidewalk. Very enjoyable and pleasant dining. Convenient walking distance to The Wally, where we were going afterwards.
It is such a lovely place to dine. The food is always great. The ambiance is warm and the service is top notch.
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.
It was great, as usual. Chopped salad is amazing!
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!
