    Dinner at La Scala was great. Everything we ordered was very good. Menu did not have many vegetarian items but they were very accommodating. We will be happy to go back.

    Atmosphere is charming in an antiqued setting. Our server was attentive, knowledgable, & personable. Bread service & dinner was so delicious.... probably the best italian food we have had in Savannah. Live music with a piano player & a lady singing made the atmosphere complete.

    Beautiful place sitting inside a house that was an old Convent. Each room is uniquely inspired in Italian cities and live piano music was a great touch. They have a beautiful old chapel too. Unfortunately, the food was not up to par with the environment. The Capresse salad lacked flavor (both cheese and tomatoes). The filet mignon was over cooked and the size was 1/2 the thickness of what a regular filet mignon should be (specially for the price). The branzino fish (sea bass) was oily and not hot (probably was sitting out for a while before getting to the table) and again overpriced for what you get. We should have tried the pasta but did not want to eat much for dinner (maybe pasta is a better choice). One more thing, the menu is not the same in their website (with prices being more than 10-20% higher when you get the menu card at the restaurant) and some dishes not showing (even if this is a seasonal menu, it should be updated in the website). Overall, great atmosphere and hope they put more attention to the food.

    La Scala is a staple when we visit Savannah! We started in the bar with well-crafted old fashioneds. The piano music from the adjoining salon was a perfect accompaniment. Our meals began with a caprese salad and amople focaccia bread. Our waiter’s wine suggestion was delightful. We enjoyed the short rib ravioli, BRFF medallions and rigatoni bolognese for our meals. We are are already looking forward to returning!

    A reasonably good experience and probably the best Italian I've found in Savannah. For the price point, service could have been better (although our server was very sweet). Service was a bit slow and there was very little follow up (drinks, bread etc). Yes we will go back but for 1/2 the price and similar tasting Italian food and good service an Italian Caffe on Habersham may be my more immediate stop.

    What a gem! Victorian style home that used to be a "nunnery" and opened as a restaurant about 4 years ago. There are 6 dining rooms and even a chapel (in case you happen to be looking for a wedding venue). There is also a large outdoor patio area for al fresco dining and a cozy little bar for drinks. The staff was extremely accommodating and cheerful. They actually seemed to enjoy working! The food was delicious...we started out with really good bruschetta and a nice bottle of Chianti. From there we moved on to pasta plates that were also very, very good indeed. This restaurant is owned by the same owner as Circa 1875...another fine restaurant in Savannah. Highly recommend! The only criticism is that the grounds could use some tender loving care.

    We went to La Scala for my husband’s 30th birthday dinner with two other friends. Everything was flawless from our food, to drinks, to ambiance, to service. Each of us ordered something different, and all four entrees were incredible. Our server, Karen, was excellent. She was knowledgable and provided helpful recommendations. We appreciated that we didn’t feel rushed at any point while we enjoyed appetizers, entrees, and after dinner drinks. We will definitely be returning to try more of this menu!

    I very rarely write reviews. The decor was dated and tacky. Server was ok but considering how few people were in there at the time, 10-15 minutes for drinks was ridiculous. She brought bread to table before even taking drink orders. Box pasta and jar sauce at home is way better. We contemplated leaving before ordering. But everyone was very friendly.

    very nice anniversary dinner, went on a weekday night at like 7 it wasn't very busy there were only a few other parties. Waiter was awesome, food fantastic, she talked us into dessert and appetizers tho we looked at the menu ahead of time and knew what we were gonna order. the hostess said we could check out upstairs but the third floor was blocked off :( still probably the best classy Italian food in the city.

    We were in town for a business meeting and I found La Scala on open table. The history of the building is amazing, and we loved the quaintness of the tables. We started in the bar for a cocktail, the bartenders were very nice and offered many drink options. We headed into the dining room and had appetizers, salads, meals and 3 server recommended desserts! The portions were large, delicious and I highly recommend the chicken parmigiana!!

    Always a good meal well served at La Scala BUT prices are on a runaway upward spiral. With most pasta courses now in the mid-30 dollar range the days of good value have ended. Spectacular setting and a highly professional staff can no longer cloak the fact that this is now a wickedly expensive night out. Some fairly pedestrian entrees, though we'll executed, are significantly overpriced, as is most of the menu. Don't come looking for value here.

I loved her from the minute we walked in the door to the minute we walked out and back in...my granddaughter left her cell phone🤦🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️. I called, and Gena went upstairs, found it, and held it for us. A perfect finish to our vacation in Hilton Head 🥂🍾

    My wife and I revisit La Scala every few months in the hope that it will be a better experience. Every time, something disappoints. This time it was the increase in prices and the decrease in portions. Also, my clams linguine was extremely garlicky. They comped our in-house made espresso cheesecake, a delightful round with the texture of mousse. But for two glasses of wine, a shared plate of caprese salad, and three medallions of veal piccata, $120 before tip does not add up to good value. Note 1: comparing menu prices on the web to new prices, the salad went from $12 to $17, and the Veal from $29 to $38. This is as disconcerting as supermarket markups. Note2: the restaurant was virtually full at 7:30, so maybe the problem is my expectations.
