La Scala is one of our favorite restaurants in Los Angeles. Have been coming here for years. Food is excellent, atmosphere is wonderful. Our regular waiter wasn’t there and the waitress appeared to be new but all in all it’s always a great evening out. Highly recommend it

Sad to say the service has deteriorated from the last time...which wasn't good either. Our server was either new or didn't care how long we sat with no attention. Our Mozzarella Marinara
came undercooked...had to send it back, after sitting for exceptionally long time. The rest of the meal was good, the food is generally excellent so no surprise there. The biggest issue was the length of time we sat unattended, both upon arrival and after ordering.

I'm hoping this restaurant up their game as this is a game changer.

We have been eating at your restaurant for many, many years. Our waitress was unfriendly, uninterested and bit rude.
We asked before ordering , if all alcoholic drinks could be rung up separately. We were told, yes.
When we received the check, there was one check, with alcoholic beverages and food bill all together.
When we asked the waitress, she told us that there is only one check per party.
We asked to speak to the manager and her response was that we can only pay with two credit cards, if the bill is split in half.
I have never heard of such a policy.
We will think again, before eating at your establishment with a group.

Food was excellent, we had 1/2 Chopped Salad and was able to order 1/2 of the Bolognese which was perfect. Our server was very nice, tried hard but was not a '10'. Maybe new person. Did not refill wine, little slow delivering cocktails, water and check. We would definitely go back.

It was a busy night and I was glad I made reservations. We were seated right away and the staff was very nice. We had a pasta dish and grilled salmon. Both were delicious. I enjoyed the pleasant lighting and the warm decor. It was a delightful and memorable evening, however, I must admit the company I was with was exceptional.

The temperature of the room at night is always to warm inthecwinterour server, overalls personable, forgot our order and had to return after 20 minutes to ask for it again and then informed us the kitchen was out of lasagna. He seemed to think this was funny. It wasn’t. There was a table with a screaming child. The parents should have beeen told to take the child outside to quiet him rather than disturb the entire dining room.

I do like the food, but the management is not client friendly. I ordered the wrong soup accidentally. They would not accommodate me by changing unless I paid for both. I've never been to a place where normal salad ingredients are extra! The salad comes with one olive and my friend asked for some extra. They would not do it!
I guess they are busy enough that it doesn't matter. There are other places to go..

La Scala is a warm, inviting room with an older atmosphere that is a welcome contrast to the noisy cold appearing current trends. The Italian food is good enough, the wine list is good enough. You will not have an exceptional meal but you will have a nice. comfortable meal at a rerasonable price in nice surroundings. Staff had always been good.

We were seated in booth in the back of the restaurant. Very quiet, cozy and a great view of the holiday splendor. We shared the house chopped salad which was awesome after adding a few more items to round out this tasty experience. I had the Bolognese which was over the top comfort food. The quantity was big enough to enjoy the next day. My husband had veal marsala and fell in love. Again, a good portion! We were too stuffed to enjoy desert, but it looked great. A nice selection of wine by the glass.

We arrived 1/2 hour early to ensure we were seated promptly. I had requested a booth but got a table. Ok. It felt very crunched as the space in between guests is very tight. Our waitress was average at best. Since it was our first time here, it’s nice to have an introduction of the restaurant. After looking over the menus. We sat for another half hour waiting for someone to take our order. The guests to the left and right had already received their dinner and had gotten there after we had. Finally our orders were placed bread was brought, however no vinegar or oil. Each portion something was always missing. Same with our drinks. We received our food and that was the highlight of the night. The food was amazing. 10 minutes into our dinner our waitress comes back to offer fresh Parmesan? Hmmm we were half way into our entrees. When I had finished a waiter came through picking up our dishes and rudely attempted to take my GF’s as well.The restaurant and location is a hotspot. If the service was right I would think about returning. It’s just broken in many aspects.

I eat at La Scala often but was very disappointed tonight. We had to wait at least 20 minutes after tour reservation time to be seated. It took an unusually long time to have our order taken. Only two of the three appetizers arrived at the appropriate time and the soup was cold. The third appetizer came out with the main course. The main courses arrived well before the appetizers were finished so half of them were wasted . I suggested the restaurant and was really embarrassed. This was not the service and experience I expected. Our waiter didn't seem to care and offered a bunch of excuses.

Our reservation was for 8pm. It took almost an hour to be seated. When I asked about our table at 8:25pm, the maitre d' said, "Well, no one is paying up..." and then shrugged his shoulders, and turned away to greet other people entering. And that was it. As returning customers, we were really disappointed with the level of service. I'd hesitate recommending La Scala to friends based on this experience.
