    First time dining at this LaScala’s location, and we probably will not return. We were first greeted by a not so friendly hostess. She never even greeted us, or even acknowledged us when we walked up to the stand. I finally had to speak up and when we said we had reservations, she looked at her computer screen, picked up two menus and started walking to a table. No greeting, no follow me, no enjoy your dinner, no words or emotions from this pink haired hostess. Not a very good impression when you enter a restaurant. After sitting at our table for 15 minutes, our server finally came to introduce herself and asked for drinks. Our server was no better than the hostess who never greeted us. Not friendly or attentive and it took her 15 minutes to get a soda and glass of wine on a very slow evening! Can’t imagine how long it would have taken if the restaurant was packed! Even after we ordered our dinner, no bread was brought to our table. We had to ask a food runner for bread and she looked shocked that our waitress hadn’t brought us any. We ordered several appetizers, which were all fabulous, but again when our dinners came, the empty appetizers plates were not removed and we ate our main meal with dirty dishes cluttered on the table. No one even checked on us during dinner. Never asked if anything if ok, if we needed anything etc… I sat with the empty wine glass and by the time she came over, I was finished my dinner. Our dinners along with the appetizers were excellent, but the service and staff at this location need some serious training!

    Pleasantly surprised by how good the food was. The ricotta jar and caprese salad were delicious appetizers. Would recommend the short rib raviolis and tuna for dinner. Nice views and good drinks. We’ll be back soon.

    Went at 4:00 on a Friday, probably didn't need a reservation but, I made one. I started with the caprese salad, hubby had a caesar. The caprese was delicious very bright and yummy. For my entree I had chicken marsala. Very tasty 3 pieces of chicken over linguine, mushrooms, sun dried tomatoes. Hubby had lobster ravioli in a blush sauce. Everything came out hot and had a really good flavor. If I had one complaint it would be that our food came out a little fast, we barely finished our apps. Even though the server said she would hold our food.

    The view is SPECTACULAR. The food is meh. Good portions but bland. Interesting drinks but they were served in plastic cups but they did have paper straws. My husband had the lasagna and said it was dry. I so wanted to love this place and return but sadly we probably won't.

    Honestly, I was disappointed last night. My salmon which I usually love was dry and there was very little sauce on it. The potatoes were also dry and extra lumpy. My lemon drop martini which I usually love, was too thick and sweet. My friend and I sat for quite a while without anyone coming over to greet us or bring us water. I actually had to ask someone if we had a server. I would think twice before coming back to this restaurant.

    The restauarant was NOISY making it difficult to have a conversation. Our waitress was less than enthusiatic. We had to ask for bread which arrived cold (probably straight out of the fridge) with no oil or butter. Food was only passable. The restaurant is in a great location with a great view. However, I will not be returning and neither will anyone else in my party of 4.

    Sent the broccoli rabe appetizer back due to the lack of seasoning on rave, there being too many stalks and it just misses the mark. I've had rave many times so I have references. I replaced it with wings that and they were tasty but nubby and there were two of the wing part in the mix... did they count this as part of the serving? We asked about bread and was told they have it but customers have to request.. Hmmm All that being said, the cheesesteak egg rolls were good and entrees (lasagne and bolognese) also good. Will go back for ambience and decent part of meal and try others. Overheard table say the pizza was good.

    Beautiful location on Cooper River. The outside dining area and bar were very nice. We had a bunch of apps and they were good. They had live entertainment on the Friday night that we were there. The guitar was nice but the guy wasn't a good singer, lol. But hey, we were outside on a beautiful evening, drinking wine and enjoying the view while nibbling on food. Will be back

    This was my first time at LaScalla Birra and it didn’t disappoint! The restaurant is stunning with great views, the service was great and the food and drinks delicious! I went with 4 girlfriends to celebrate a birthday and we had the best time! We split lots of food and enjoyed everything! This will definitely become my new go to restaurant!

    Scenic restaurant right on the Cooper River. The food is delicious. I highly recommend the ricotta board, the famous mussels (probably one of the best mussels dish I've ever had), and the rigatoni vodka. The blood orange margaritas are also out of this world delicious!

    I have eaten at other LaScale's restuartants and in joyed their pizza. The pizza was not as good here. I believe the difference is here they use a pizza oven, the other uses a wood fire oven.
