Prepandemic I’d have given a much lower rating. Giving staffing now, I’m much more forgiving. On multiple visits now, I’ll say food comes out randomly. And entrees take forever. Both of last visits some people got entrees and were finished before rest came out. But decent food. Great atmosphere

Busy night for our server, so she was a little slow. Had too many tables to cover. Things would be better with one more server outside. Other than that, excellent evening!

We went for an early dinner. Even though we made reservations, there were some empty tables. Service was outstanding. We first thought we wanted to sit outside, but changed to inside by the beautiful water view as it was hot out. Everyone liked their food including clams, wings, salads, and meatballs. We will definitely go again!

NOT like LaScalas in S. Philly!!!! We sat outside on the patio which was very nice. But for some reason the bartender was our waitress while majority of the other tables had an actual waitress, not sure why. Thus the service was awful. Whenever we needed a refill of a drink or anything else we had to flag someone down or go to the bar because we didn't have an actual waitress. The bartender didn't really know much about the menu. While all the dishes were real ceramic or whatever dishes, the cups were little plastic cheap cups, so drinking a glass of red wine out of a plastic cheap cup was just bizarre. Food was just so-so, I was not impressed at all. Will not go back.

Had a great meal (chicken parm x2 for the win tonight but love the meatball salad too!)The rain dissipated and we were able to eat outside. Beautiful ambiance with the lights on Cooper River! This place is a gem.

Waitress wasn't very friendly or attentive. The food was sub par at best and way over priced for the lack of quality and taste. Won't be going back.

Service was very good. Kitchen was exceptionally quick. Food is very good. Everything came out cooked properly. 3 out 4 came out together 4th came out very shortly after. Building is very nice, a little brighter than I prefer but I know some may like that. Personal preference. It was not that busy but it was a little louder than i would expect. That may also be personal preference.

Been here numerous times and generally have a very positive experience. Last night was a very different vibe. The staff seemed very rushed, the food all came out at once, appetizers and mains, plastic cups were used, waitresses were non existent, place settings were not set, just an afterthought and plopped down in the middle of the table and then rushed away.

Did not feel welcome last night.

The food was still perfect but the ambiance left a lot to be desired.

LaScala’s Birra had such a great atmosphere! Indoor dining was great for a date night. It was quiet but also had TVs to watch your favorite sports game if your team is playing. The waitress was so nice and quick with our order. They also have a beautiful outdoor dining area that’s right on the Cooper River, which is a great place to go for a walk to walk off those worth-it calories you just ate!

The food was not as good as our previous visits. They have removed the crab from their fries, the short rib ravioli was a bit bland and the drinks were unremarkable. The staff was friendly and restaurant and inviting. Overall a 3 out of 5.

We had a great time at dinner. I did receive notice of a change of time, but only via email. In the future a phone call would be nice because we did not know until we got there.

I went as a chaperone for a date arranged from an internet date site.
Food was enjoyable but it was a bit noisy because I was seated near a baby shower.
