The server could have been a little more personable (second time I have had her as our server) but otherwise everything was great.

Stopped in on Sunday. The place was well organized and clean for China Virus restrictions. We had salad, mussels and pizza. Very Good. Good service. Good place to have lunch and dinner outside. More importantly, the owner did not jack up the prices. Same price pre China Virus. That alone you should support this fine establishment. Enjoy.

Its a nice setup would go back again .

Went for our anniversary which I stated with rsvp requested a table toward back near water .. was seated at entrance 😑 nothing special for our anniversary..

My husband had tried it before and said its nice to check out and we wanted something lowkey for our anniversary so we went .. it’s definitely a regular thing type of place not for anything special if you wanted

Waitress was nice and friendly same with rest of waitstaff

We were really satisfied with the food, and the prices. However, a few servers, including our own, did not have their mask over their nose along with their mouth, which is not the proper COVID protocol. A manager should’ve seen this and corrected the server as it doesn’t protect the customer nor the server, let alone the food they are serving.

This was our first time to LaScala and we will definitely be back! The other couple at our table ordered the LaScala fries and the lumps of crab meat on top was huge. I ordered the spinach and goat cheese salad and it was so fresh and delicious. The goat cheese was fried and when I cracked into it the cheese on the inside was creamy!

We sat outside due to COVID but the area they have set up is so quaint. There are several tables as well as bar top tables set up. They have several umbrellas to create shade wherever you sit. String lights are strung throughout the area- we went during the day but I bet at night it would be beautiful to sit there. This entire area overlooks cooper river.

Our waitress was great. They use IPads to place your order at the table so there was minimal room for error.

Food was very good, some
Really great menu options. Outside seating by the river under trees was nice but came w bugs. One lady had a caterpillar on her back and i had several beetles on me. Not a huge deal but I guess something we have to contend with in this age out outside eating. I felt like a bug was crawling on me while we drove home and I ended up finding another beetle in my clothes. Also felt bad for the waitresses as it seemed like they were bartending which resulted in slower than normal service. Again not bad just a little different. And unfortunately we found this morning our car got hit in the parking lot.😭😡

Went for lunch at 11:30am. It was an extremely hot day but we were able to sit in a great shady spot which was really nice & a very nice view. Food was delicious & the waiter explained everything on the menu that we expressed interest in & had great recommendations. We will definitely go again.

Parking is very easy here. The restaurant is brightly lit and clean. Food was very good, reasonably priced and our server very attentive. I have dined at the Passyunk location and food is great at both locations.

Dinner for four on a busy Saturday night. GPS sent us right by the place but they have a large sign attached to the front of the building. Parking lot is poorly lighted. Had a reservation and were seated immediately. Server was efficient and personable but salads and cheesesteak eggroll appetizer were the best part of the meal. Three of us had pizza and the fourth the salmon entrée. His entrée came out so quickly that he was almost finished before our pizzas arrived. The pizzas were a major disappointment. The meat on them was cold and left in slices and appeared to have been added after the pies were out of the oven. Biting the slice pulled all of the meat off the pie. Very unappetizing! Because of the service and ambiance, not a horrible experience but not worth the money.

Had mussels and a salad which were good. Surprisingly i found the pizza crust soft and a little doughy. That just might be my personal taste.

The service was great. Drinks came fast as soon as we ordered and reordered them. Waiter was very polite and attentive. We ordered a few apps the baked eggplant was good the salads were also good. We did not order entrees but probably should have because the three pizzas we ordered were undercooked and a bit doughy. The flavor was good however. But there are definitely better choices for brick or wood burning pizza places ..

I have literally never had a bad meal here. We hesitantly went out on valentine's day wondering if the "specialty menu" or even service would hold up and it did not disappoint! The specials were amazing service was great as always! I wouldn't really go anywhere else!!
