                                          ステーキをミディアムでオーダーしたが、ウェルダンで肉が硬くなってしまい、塩加減も効いていない酷いものが出て来た。 クレームしたところ、謝罪とともに、やり直して美味しい状態の肉が出て来た。 最初のステーキはメインシェフでない調理人が作ったのではないかと思われるが、格差があり過ぎる。

                                          Totally overrated. Food was for this estimated standard not good as well cos value to prize is not in a relation. But the service was great and paid a lot of attention. Its sad for such a beautiful place to make such a bad expirience with the food. If you like you can contact me everytime and i will give you more details about the food

                                          We were one of the first diners in the restaurant that night and only 3 or 4 other tables trickled in over the course of the evening. Server recommended one of their signature whole roast chicken dishes and then proceeded to tell us a few minutes later that they were sold out but could sell us two pre cut versions of their special that were leftover from lunch. We declined and the server then proceeded to argue that roasting pre cut/quartered chicken was the same as roasting a whole chicken and that we should keep the order. We declined. Food was extremely bland and we were required to season the dishes ourselves - and this was for 4 out 5 dishes we ordered. The server said that “tonight’s chef might have a more sensitive palate so he doesn’t use much seasoning”. We asked whether they are supposed to follow a recipe from the head chef and the server proceeded to explain that “yes, they should but sometimes they deviate - let me go tell the chef to make the food as described in the menu”. Our next dish came out equally bland. Terrible restaurant with no ambiance - it basically feels like a cafeteria. A bad one.

                                          It was great evening dinner with my friend in La Scala. A special seasonal menu prepared and presented by the Master Chef Theodor and Stefano. No doubt it was very impressed by the dishes with fresh materials from spring season and local market. A very interesting wine list is available and you can find wines from major wineries in Italy. It is a must try-out restaurant when you are in Shanghai.

                                          After a few days of great Chinese food in Beijing and Shanghai, it was nice to have a bit of a change. La Scala was a great choice for that. I have to give my hats off to the two servers who took care of our group of 16 people. Cheers!

                                          Excellent food. Authentic ingredients and very well put together, both in taste and presentation. Great choice in menu and couldn’t fault anything. The chef came out to chat with us which makes us feel at home. Service is good without intruding. Will definitely go back.

                                          Fantastic food and a great weekend brunch deal- a three course meal with a delectable buffet assortment of bites such as burrata, prosciutto, grilled meat, oyster, and smoked salmon/caviar/blini. Very professional and friendly staff. Will come back again to try the dinner selection!
