Visited during Restaurant Week. The menu was varied and the food was great. Big favorites were the mussels appetizer and the Chicken San Remo entrée. Will definitely visit again.

First time visiting and we loved it! The food was yummy and we really liked the vibe. We sat by the back door so we were quite cold, but that was the only negative and otherwise I can't wait to visit again!

My first time this past weekend - with friends who also enjoyed the experience. The staff, from the door, were warm and friendly. The server was awesome in attentiveness and conversation. Those helping the server seemed to enjoy our enjoyment. The food was delicious and the portions are large enough to share with others. The restaurant feels a little cramped; it can be noisy being so close to others, but I’ll be back ... the perks override the minor downsides❗️👍

Food and service were first rate. But for the noise level, which made table conversation very difficult, it would have been 5-star.

This is not our first time here and once again it did not disappoint. The meatball appetizer was excellent. My Tortellini dish was wonderful and my husband really enjoyed his pizza. The service was excellent, and I look forward to my return.

By far thee absolute best pizza in THE UNIVERSE!!! NOT KIDDING! The mussels were fantastic, even brought the broth home to use in another dish. The arugula salad was good but seemed a little light on the octopus. Overall excellent food and service. Thank you Dorio !

Mediocre experience. Service was pretty bad and had us waiting for so long for just a small plate that someone had to go to the bar finally to request. Then we waited for drinks forever.

Food was delicious. Terrible service. Never received things we asked for like salt and pepper, Parmesan cheese. Received glass of wine after completion of both of our meals and were not even offered to send it back or have it waived from the bill. Server lacked remorse. Wouldn't return.

We had a party of 9 including kids and the service was excellent, food came pretty quick but hot and very good quality. Beer selection is the focus here but good Italian staple wines available and a full bar.

It was my first time at this specific LaScala location. Have been to others many times. Gnocchi and Chopped salad were incredible- best we ever had! Spinach and Artichoke pizza was pretty good. Probably would try a different pizza next time I went back since there are so many to pick from. Sat downstairs near bar. It was a little tight and noisy. I saw there were stairs, the upstairs might be more spacious and quieter. Overall a huge fan of all the LaScala restaurant locations.

Although it's on a little pricier side, for my budget, it is definitely worth it. Super yummy. I totally went blank with our server's name, but he was great! Overall, wonderful customer service. Definitely will come back again.

The noise level was a more loud than to be expected. The indoor seating area wasn’t the most spacious. The cocktails were ok. The Moscow mule wasn’t exactly on point. The gin gimlet was also lacking something. The food on the other hand was very delicious. The meatballs with the fresh ricotta were absolutely amazing. The arincini balls were fantastic as well. The white mushroom pizza with truffles was excellent. The egg cook on top really tipped it over the edge. Definitely recommend this place for a low key dinner event.

This place has never disappointed me before and is a regular go-to. However, the last time I went there they screwed up my order and the service was exceptionally slow. The waiter was very pleasant but because they made a mistake with my order and I didn't want to wait for them to prepare another order I did not have a good meal.

We had a late Saturday evening dinner of the eggplant appetizer and two pizzas for 4. The eggplant was delicious and pizzas were great with good sauce and crispy crust (but not burnt). We topped it off with cannolis for dessert, and the wait staff was kind to bring one cannoli with a candle for a birthday celebration. We will definitely return and want to try their entrees.
