Great experience. I ordered the fried veggies but did not ask it they were battered and deep fried. They were. I did not eat them. They did not charge. Classy place.

The venue is beautiful... restored home (assuming it’s historic) with period decorations. The greeting was fabulous... the hostess, Gina, along with Diana, the singer and Don, an owner, made us feel wanted and welcome. We are local to Savannah but they didn’t know that until we chatted. I cannot say the rest of the service was as hospitable. A comment was made by, I presume by the GM, about us being early. We were, but we knew that. So, on to it... we were seated 40 minutes after our reserved time. It happens, but, our drinks and dinner took far longer than we felt it should since the restaurant emptied slowly as we sat there - we we’re left in an empty room. Our waitress “disappeared” and another stepped in to help us (she was setting up the room for the next day)... she actually brought our food when we asked if she could check on it. Timing? Doubtful. When we finally finished, 2 hours later (approx 11pm), we could see the staff had retreated to the bar, our waitress was doing set up and host of other activities was in motion to close up for the night - clearly those were more important than serving us. It’s really too bad as we will never return as a result.

NYE night the food was okay, but the service was not up to par. I have never been to a restaurant and waited over an hour for a drink. By the time our drinks came our entree was there five minutes later. The waitress was great , but as for the bar service not was great. Probably would not return.

We have been wanting to try LaScala - love Italian food and such a beautiful venue. Menu was odd - only beef cut offered was a tbone which was very thin, not seasoned - felt like someone made it at home on the grill - gnocchi also lacked seasoning/ flavor . Husband bolognese sauce was more like a chili with large carrot chunks. Just not at all what we expected. Ambiance was nice - staff was friendly. But just not at all in the category of a Vic’s or Pink House. We wanted to love it but did not.

The food was great as usual; however, our dining experience was marred by an extremely loud server who made it impossible to carry on a conversation when she was anywhere in the room talking to a table of guests. In the past we’ve always had very professional, well groomed, well trained servers who added to the dining experience… On Wednesday night the servers were all young and very inexperienced ... awkward service, didn’t know how to pour the brodo broth, almost nailed my friend while shaving the Parmesan. It felt like we were at Mel’s diner. In addition, our table was right in top of another table, we moved our table as far from the other table as possible, but it was still very uncomfortable from a social distance standpoint.

T-bone steak has two sides on the bone. This was served without the tenderloin portion. Gave a 20% discount for the missing tenderloin. Should give the customer what they expect - not discounts. Cesar salad thrown on the plate. Upscale restaurant should have served table-side. Calamari was no better than what you would get at Olive Garden. Gnocchi were huge and hard. Garlic bread was greasy. Waitress was very nice but simply lacked the experience required for a fine dinning restaurant. All things considered, the prices were about 15% to high .

My wife and I have eaten at LaScala a number of times and each time has been memorable. Friday night the special entree was Lasagne and it was delicious. A great wine list made the evening complete. Highly recommend for a special night out.

Service was great, our waitress Carolyn was very knowledgeable about wine and our food options. Do note that when they ask you if you want still or sparkling water the sparkling is $6 for a bottle of San Peligrino. Ate the Bolognese snd it was good but a bit overpriced for a pasta dish. Overall good ambiance and good service

We had been to La Scala in August and were very impressed with the food, service and Covid precautions.
Last night was a different story. The hostess who greeted us was not wearing a mask. The manager who we spoke with about masks was not wearing a mask. One of the people in our party has a compromised immune system and we didn’t feel totally safe with staff members walking past our table not wearing masks.
Sitting on the back porch, smoke was drifting up from the back area where employees were sitting outside smoking.

Our waitress, Vanessa was fantastic. She was very knowledgeable regarding the wines and was very attentive.

Lascala is not taking COVID-19 seriously enough any longer and therefore I would not recommend going there at this time.

Overrated restaurant. The restaurant itself is beautiful. Food is mediocre. Portions are skimpy.

Our server did not tell us of any specials until asked, and did not mention that bread was included so we ordered and paid for bread listed in the appetizer section.

I paid 24 for a square of lukewarm lasagna that was no more than 3x3 inches.

Dessert pieces were 9 and very small slivers.

Oscar was hysterical and so fun. Outdoor live entertainment with Diane Parker was fun. Lots of character. Covid precautions with the exception of the GM/Hostess who was not masked, everyone else was. We ate outside. The food was good. Pizza was amazing. Lasagna was okay. Chef had us try the gnocchi and it was great. Wine selection was great. We didn’t have dessert. Prices were reasonable. Not the best food. Not the worst food. The ambiance and people made it amazing. We will be back.
