    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.

    Service is fast and accurate. They have a 90 min seating limit, so they don't fool around here. Food is tasty, hot and nicely presented. Not huge portions, so order an appetizer or two and don't look back. Desserts highly recommended as well. Ambiance is fun and inviting. Venue is right on the Cooper River Park, so outside dining is excellent when the weather allows.

    We have not dined at La Scala's Birra since before the covid shut down and had forgotten how much we liked it. For the price and ambiance, the meals are excellent and very delicious. The sangria is nice but it isn't really a traditional sangria with fruit in it so if that's what you like maybe choose a different cocktail. Servings were a good amount resulting in doggie boxes to take home. Loves the caprese app and arancini. Service was good. We didn't stay there for more than an hour but were told upon being seated that we only have 90 minutes. I know they need to turnover to make money but it's a little tacky to make that disclaimer. But I've noticed a lot of restaurants are like that now. Aside from that I'm looking forward to going back.

    Hopefully you’ll get a waitress that is okay waiting on people Of color. While not one single person in the venue was of color I didn’t feel like it was a problem until our server (yes a person in the service industry in Pensauken NJ) got to the table. She was cold, uninterested and made the entire experience horrible. Food was great, drinks too. Hopefully she was a fluke but I won’t be returning.
