First time I've come here and been disappointed! Not sure what happened. It wasn't even all that busy when we first arrived (but on a Saturday night obviously got much busier)
We each ordered a salad. My goat cheese and spinach came without goat cheese(!) and my friend's salad (entree salad) looked like a sad, side salad.
We were both really disappointed.
Hoping next time is better.

Delicious food, especially the baked eggplant appetizer and the dessert menu! The waiter, Will, came to our car after we left to bring our credit card, which we forgot. Above and beyond service!!!

Went here with a girlfriend for dinner and drinks. Service was lackluster and food wasn’t great. Love the other LaScala locations but won’t be coming back to this one.

Dinner with friends was great. Really enjoyed apps and dinner, must get the riccotta board. Order the Clams in white sauce ask for extra bread, great for dipping in the broth. If you like trying different things try the drink special. One visit I had a blood orange margaritas, last night was an apple and cranberry sangria. We have yet to order something we have not enjoyed

Great Atmosphere and location. They did not get 5 star for me because I love Calamari and there’s was very bland. Besides this 1 drawback, everyone loved the food and drink they ordered. Would definitely go again and recommend to others

Service from Scott on Monday nights is always excellent. Everything from cocktails to food comes out in a timely manner. We ordered appetizers and pizzas to share. Their dough is amazing and fresh! We will definitely be back.

I seen this restaurant go through a number of changes over the years and this one seems to be a pleasant one. The ambience is clean and casual but not quite a sports bar feel. The menu is concise, but creative. The Eggplant was tasty and generously portioned. The meatballs were large and flavorful. The arugula salad was excellent with the white vinaigrette and my friend liked the Caesar also. Our server was friendly, knowledgeable and prompt. I will, definitely return to LaScala's Birra.

Appetizers were very good, meals were average at best compared to so many other Italian restaurants in the area. Service was wonderful, waiter (Will) worked a lot of tables but was on top of everything. Place is clean and don’t feel like we were cheated. Will try it again but order the pizza. That looked good. If you’re looking for a place to sit and talk, to use Gov Murphy’s phrase “We’re probably not your restaurant “, very loud.

I usually have great meals here! Last night ordered the mussels and they were bad! But our server immediately took them away and the item was removed from the bill. They were very apologetic and professional. Every other dish we had was absolutely delicious!

It was a nice fall day so 3 friends of mine and I sat outside for lunch.
The food was so good. The four of us ordered several appetizers to share and all were delicious. The ricotta with honey was recommended by Ken, our waiter, and we all loved it. We also ordered the sausage with broccoli rabe, the mussels (which came with red sauce - we all agreed we prefer them in garlic wine sauce, but they were good too) and 2 pizzas.
Ken was fun and attentive, but not obtrusive. It was really a great overall experience.
I would definitely recommend LaScala’s

Had pizza that was topped supposedly with prosciutto but it was very low grade of meat and the pizza was cooked in a Rgular oven yet your photos on website show dough freckling common with wood fired brick oven pizza we were anticipating.
Good beer!
We were disappointed with the food.
Won’t return. Sorry!

Working in the food industry for years both back and front of the house, I think the place has great potentials and I liked the atmosphere. However, the service could be better and the food could be more flavorful and make sense. I will definitely go back to try some of the other items.

One of our favorite places to go! We sat at the bar area so my son could watch the flyers game. The hostess was very accommodating and put the game on the TV for him. Our server, Mary, was very attentive. Food was great, as usual. Had the mussels, 2 Caesar salads, a four cheese pizza and 2 meatball salads. I don’t usually eat meatballs out but these are the best! Fun atmosphere and great place to eat with family or a get together with friends.
