Eat Fresh, Eat Well, Eat Local........Eat Better!! La Scala Italian Restaurant,voted the area"s Best Italian Restaurant, is located in historic downtown Lafayette and is owned by Chef Francisco "Paco" and Kirsten Serrano. We are a special destination restaurant and a great date spot, as well as an everyday eatery with a family friendly atmosphere. Our enormous menu pleases all. We have exquisite dinner entrees and great fast and filling lunches. We craft each dish when you order it from fresh, wholesome ingredients. We support and feature local products. Some of our produce even comes from the Chef's farm, Small Wonder Farm. Gluten Free and Whole Wheat pasta options are available. Our unique wines feature small producers worldwide and our premier martinis and cocktails are delicious. The concept for La Scala that we brought to the table originally and the same concept that guides the restaurant today is to serve the best classic Italian cuisine in an casual atmosphere.

There were so many excellent options on the menu we will be back to try more. We tired the lobster Mac n cheese and it was delicious. I had the Cioppino Seafood stew recommended by our server Jen and it was delicious. We also had for the table veal Oscar and Lobster ravioli. The drinks were great, the service outstanding and the food was wonderful. We will be back again.

I usually have amazing service there, so sup-par service was lame. The food was sensational, as always. I've never had a bad meal.

We always enjoy the food. We always seem to have a very long wait time for our server to acknowledge us, once we are seated.

I'm a gastric bypass patient and can not eat a full meal. I have a card with me at all times explaining this to the management and asking for a half portion. When I showed this to our server said she could make it a half portion, but would have to charge me full price! I have never been to a restaurant that didn't discount the meal for me. The manager came over to tell us that there was no way to change the prices in the computer and the owner refuses to be empathetic to bypass patients. She then offered me the kids menu...which only had chicken tenders, Mac and cheese, hamburger, ect. I will not be returning to this restaurant again.

We always love visiting La Scala for any occasion. Especially love Kirsten's risotto. It's always incredible. Had the "Oldest Fashion" from the drink menu and was very happy with it as well! We'll keep going back as often as possible!
