La Scala - Beverly Hills
What Insiders Are Saying
La Scala is red sauce Italian in Beverly Hills - but you're really here for the chopped salad.
Still my favorite restaurant in Los Angeles.
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.
The meal was delicious! The service was okay. The noise level was somewhat loud.
WE hade the best service. Delicious food
WE WILL DEFENATLY BE BACK
Excellent. Crab cakes were particularly excellent.
Excellent food, service, ambiance. The chopped salad is my favorite, minus the salami, with some additional vegetables. It’s always fresh!
A delicious meal as usual. The chopped salad is a must.
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.
Very nice quality restaurant. The service was attentive and the food was delicious. We'll find our way here again.
Love the chopped salads and team it with steamed mussels and you have a great meal. Pastas are very good too.
Friendly, efficient service. Delicious, traditional Italian cuisine with some modern twists. Very popular with regulars from the neighborhood & theater-goers alike
such a great place. the chopped salad is legendary and that alone is worth it. the wine list excellent and the food and service outstanding definitely going back
Love this place never disappoints #choppedsaladislife
So fun! Such good food. Had to try the chopped salad and I strongly recommend the blue cheese dressing....a-ma-zing!
Everything we ordered had too much tomato sauce
Excellent food and atmosphere, mediocre service. We will give them another try.
Been going here for years. One of the few classic standards that has held onto its quality and continues to thrive in this city. Guy was our waiter this last visit and he was one of the best waiters I've had.
Excellent food. Marvelous server. Attractive and dining room that's quiet enough to talk with companions. Convenient parking in city lot. Interesting "window shopping" neighborhood.
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.
Went for a latish and light dinner with friends. Food is rock solid; staff was courteous, friendly and helpful (and quickly resolved minor error in order). We go here from time-to-time and are always pleased.
accommodating staff and reservation was available on time
La Scala is consistently a wonderful date night place. Great for walking to the Wallis after dinner.
Always good food and our server was great.
Fabulous as always
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 )
Old time favorite, red leather booths, great ambiance!
A great place to meet for a wonderful turkey chop salad in the middle of Beverly Hills!
Loved it. We were in a hurry to make a show and they accommodated us with time to spare!
We arrived No host he cane 10 minutes later. He said he was on his break! Same arrogant host that has been there. I will not come back!!!!!
My boss loves coming to La Scala when visiting. Was hard to attract wait staff attention a couple of times but restaurant was busy.
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.
I love that place!
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.
All enjoyed their meal.
Great atmosphere excellent serivrce and yummy food. Strong recommend
Always a favorite go to restaurant. Great chopped salad and the pastas are all delicious!
