Went there for a bridal shower and enjoyed the food. Needed to return with friends. Enjoyed food and will be returning especially with outdoor dining
Too bright, too noisy. Server was very nice, food was ok
We were very disappointed not to get the table we requested. The weighted was excellent.
This restaurant has been beautifully redesigned into a spacious and attractive space with an urban feel. The tables are far apart enough so that you can have a conversation, but the place still has an lively vibe. The food was very good, although the policy of bringing out everything when it's ready did not really suit our party as three of us watched the fourth alternatively eat and allow her food to get cold. However, the food was overall very good and nicely presented. I had the salmon entree which was excellent, another enjoyed the meatball salad. Our server could have had a better tableside manner but overall we had a very enjoyable experience. Perfect for a casual night out with friends or family.
Our group of 10 had a really nice time at LaScala's. No rush, friendly service and very tasty cuisine. Can't wait to go back!
This has become one of my favorite restaurants, and the fact that it's just across the river from me is a bonus. I recommend going with a group of people. That way, you can order a bunch of different "small" plates and share and try something you might not ordinarily think about ordering. The food was great, the service was prompt, and the reason I put quotation marks around "small" is because their "small" plates are very generous. This is a fun restaurant and provides excellent value.
Great food, great service, I love LaScalas more every time I visit.
Delicious food and nice size portions, always leave with leftovers. Our waiter Will remembered us from a previous visit and was once again a wonderful server.
I made a reservation for 8 for a friends 30th birthday turned celebration for her engagement. The space is beautifully renovated and offers a full bar. The views of Cooper river are great and will be so beautiful to enjoy during the warmer months. The food was delicious and reasonably priced. The service was wonderful. All in all we had a great time and I’ll definitely be going back for happy hour next time! Can’t wait to try the outdoor area as the weather warms up.
Food was delicious! Atmosphere was alive and active!
Service and food was wonderful. The 6 children’s screaming for all to hear not my favorite part.
Great food in a great space on the water.
Mussels were superb. Pizza very good. Service could use some improvement especially on wine service.
Went for a ladies night out. It was very nice. The ricotta board is absolutely fabulous. And the Parmesan artichoke salad is delicious. I also had the brussel sprouts and they were awesome too!!!! I enjoyed Lascala’s Birra so much that I returned for lunch the very next day and brought the hubby and one of my sons. They loved it as well!!!
Enjoyable lunch with friends - good service, portions and relaxing water view
Great service from the waiter to the hostess and manager. Food is delicious. We love the ricotta and honey jar!
Wait staff was inattentive, even though the restaurant was not crowded on a Friday night. No one came to the table to refill drinks or ask about our meal. The food was mediocre. Our three entrees did not come out at the same time; one diner waited almost ten minutes longer for her chicken parmaggiano. Truffle fries tasted like regular fries. For the price, entrees should have come with soup, salad, or bread.
Excellent restaurant with fabulous ambiance, great food & friendly staff.
Decent bar-influenced food, cold beer and couple TVs ... everything that I need
The whole experience was really good! Not only was the food incredible but the live band was awesome!
Great food! Great music!
Had the pizza and it was pretty good. My 6 year old son wanted pizza and this was on way to Cooper Golf so decided to give it a try. The server was super friendly to him and really attentive. They really fixed the place up nice compared to the old Lobster Trap restaurant that used to be here. If in the area I would stop back.
Just went for drinks and apps. Everything was very good.
The food was delicious. However, it came out to our table one plate at a time, with a fair amount of time in between. My ravioli came out first. By the time our table of 4 had all received our dinners, mine was barely warm, since I had waited for everyone to receive theirs. I don’t know if it was the kitchen (it was fairly crowded) or if the server missed bringing them out together. In any case, there was no explanation for the delay and I would have enjoyed dinner much more if it had been warmer.
been there a dozen times.....food is consistent, portions are ample....good value
We had a great time. Ordered several appetizers and picked and had drinks.
Couldn't ask for a better experience
This restaurant has been through many names and ownership. The current presentation offers the best food of any in recent memory. The place was, virtually, empty when we were there, so we were, more than amply, attended to. The octopus salad was creatively presented with thinly sliced octopus on arugula with a delicate dressing, tamarind orange slices and roasted pepper and it was quite good. The Penne Carbonara was flavorful, though the portion was small. The Chicken San Remo, on the other hand was an enormous portion with 2 chicken breast pieces with shrimp, crab and a mound of fettuccine in a tasty vodka sauce. We were too stuffed for dessert and took a lot of the Chicken home with us. We'll definitely try them again.
Great selection and portions. Food comes as soon as its ready. Love the apps n pizza. My fave is fra diavolo for entree. Our server was informative n helpful!
Went here for New Year’s eve dinner around 830. Got the sense that it must’ve been pretty hectic earlier in the evening, but things were calm when we arrived. We ordered the Brussels sprouts, cheese fondue, and meatball appetizers and pizza all’s carbonara. Meatballs and pizza were good, but ohhh man. I’ve never experienced anything quite as bad as the Brussels sprouts and fondue. Sprouts were undercooked (hard) and burnt at the same time and smothered in an oversweet balsamic syrup that we couldn’t get through. The “fondue” was like the stringy ball of cheese at the bottom of a French onion soup in a cup of butter - the only way we could eat was to use our forks and cut out gobs of cheese to put on top of the bread (our guess was that it had been microwaved?). We’re not foodies by any means, but these dishes were not restaurant standard. Service was also challenged with order mix-ups and timing issues (received entree before our last appetizer). Meatballs were wonderful and I’m curious about the other pizzas, but not sure I’ll ever get past my first impression to go again.
New Years Eve dinner
Had a great meal from start to finish. Service was impeccable not only our waitress but the entire staff!! Food was delicious, served hot, and not rushed considering we were there on NYE.
New Year’s Eve is often a rushed experience however the food was lousy with poor taste compared to previous LaScala experiences. The service was almost as bad as the food was. Even the wine was room temperature warm wine not even remotely appropriate temperature. Shame because I liked this restaurant until tonight.
Great value. Great tasting food. Menu explained well. Nice bar selection. It’s a winner on all fronts.
Food & service was good. Vodka sauce was excellent. Calamari was good but sauce more oriental vs Italian.
Great service and great food!
My girlfriend and I love dining here! We always have a great meal and leave wondering when we are coming back. Thank you for the great service and amazing meal!
Love, Love,Love the octopus salad. Reminds of my grandmom’s salad. Never got the recipe. Delicious!
Good: food, drinks, ambiance, arugula salad!!
Not-so-good: no one at doirvto greet you, waited about 3 minutes for hostess/waitress to seat us at table. Vegan pizza needs a little more effort-cut those veggies smaller, add more variety! Seems like chef just threw on a handful of large slices of zucchini.
Also—consider adding a rice, barley or other non-wheat option. For those who can’t eat pizza, pasta, Stromboli, panini...
I knew when I walked that I would love the food here! The old enlarged pictures reminded of my grandparents’ pictures from South Philly! Can’t wait to go back!
