Fried Zucchini App was great. Filet and Shrimp cooked to perfection. As always, the best marinara sauce ever.

I enjoy going to La Scala. This was my second time going, and I loved it this time around too. My significant other and I who were late to the dinner, found that the staff was very accommodating to this. However, when we arrived at the restaurant the front staff didn't seem as friendly as we thought, or as the previous time when I was there. La Scala does a nice job with large groups, since when I came to celebrate a birthday last year, the service was impeccable and the food was divine. The ambiance at La Scala is beautiful and authentic. The indoor bocce ball court is a must for every visitor! This time around, the service was good and the food was delicious.

Always my first choice when in Little Italy. The food is exceptional, the wait staff is knowledgeable and always willing to help or make adjustments to menu offerings. The specials are always the highlight of the visit but simple pasta there is as special as any other offering.

Enjoyed the calamari and split two lovely pasta dishes. The roasted Caesar salad was recommended, but neither of us cared for it.

Can't say enough about the wonderful evening we had. Reserving the shuttle removed the hassle of parking and traffic; the wait staff were perfectly friendly and attentive; the interior is beautiful; and the food was delicious. My fiance and I went for a romantic dinner and found La Scala to be perfect for just that. It was Valentine's weekend and saw a number of other couples - but clearly it is a popular choice for large groups and friends as well. There is even a bocce ball court on the ground floor! But our romantic night was removed from that, so although the noise was a bit more than expected it was just the right level for my partner and I to enjoy conversation without either whispering or yelling.

I am not an expert on Italian food, but both our meals and our appetizer were great. The stand out though was the cream puff dessert. It comes in a sort of mousse/airy pudding that is some of the best chocolate I've ever tasted. I highly recommend if you like chocolatey or creamy desserts.

Recommending La Scala to friends, without hesitation.

Alfredo, our terrific waiter, took great care of us
Requests were handled efficiently and the whole experience was seamless, professional, yet with that little extra warmth that makes a really outstanding meal.

Amazing food, out of this world. A great atmosphere and attentive and helpful servers. My water was never more than half empty! A bit expensive for the Everyman but very much worth it for a special occasion

La scala did not disappoint! We had fours courses and each one was built on the one before. The Filet with peppercorns in a brown sauce literally melted as you ate it. The fresh pressed olive oil and bread to start the meal cleansed the pallet nicely.

Took my wife here for Valentine's Day. Great food and service. Would definitely eat her again. You must try the signature char-grilled caesar salad and cannolis.
