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.

Dinner at LaScala Birra last week was really really good! We will definitely return when we are in the area. We sat upstairs so it wasn't noisy and the server took great care of us.

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.

Had an absolutely wonderful time. Food was fantastic with terrific service. Casual place with a great menu and good selection of craft beers. I would definitely recommend a reservation. Everything from the pizza to the braised short rib ravioli were amazing. Our server Kara really knew what she was doing and she helped make my sons 25th a great night. Thank you LaScalas and Kara.

We originally had wanted to eat outside but we ended up sitting upstairs. We were so pleasantly surprised as it had a beautiful view over the square and we had a nice breeze with the window open. The food was excellent and the serve was so nice!

We were a party of six on unseasonably warm evening. There were many available outdoor tables, which we requested but they stated we were too big a party. We were seated by the door/counter which was not ideal. The kitchen had run out of cured tomatoes for the margarita pizza which was surprising given that must be a more commonly ordered pizza. Fried egg on truffle pizza overcooked, so no runny yoke. Pizza was good, but not outstandingly better than other city options. It took a long time to get beer orders.

We had a large party of 14 and service was a bit spotty at times, we were told upon arrival that we would need to be out by a certain time, which didn't make us feel very welcome but it wasn't an issue. Overall we had a great experience. The food was delicious, the pizza's were amazing! Great place for families and large groups!

First time taking ALL the kids out- two 3 year olds, a 10 month old, and a 6 month old!!! Food was great, pizza and meatball app. Everything came out quick too, which is helpful with all the babies... the biggest problem is the fact that you’re a pizza restaurant, knowing there will be tons of kids coming thru the place and there are NO changing tables. Not good.

The food was amazing! Our server was very nice and attentive but our meal took close to 2 hours because of how slow thr kitchen and the bar was. Even so, we definitely will be going back because the food was great.

I had never been to this restaurant so thought we should try it for restaurant week. I have to say the food was outstanding (salty but good) . What was not good was that we got our appetizers immediately and then waited over an hour for our food! everyone around us was eating, even people who got in after us. No one came up to us to say anything. I had to seek out our waitress and she kept giving us excuses. It was frustrating and I should have talked to a manager. THey did not even say, Here is a free dessert for your troubles. Just NOT right. Needless to say, I was very disappointed.

We've now gone twice, once for restaurant week, and loved it both times. The restaurant week menu is a real deal - they give you full portions. The arrancini and seafood fra diavolo were especially awesome.

Went for restaurant week and ran out of a few items on the menu (of course the items I wanted to order) and one of my friend's dinners were a little cold. Short staffed that night but overall was a great night with god food.

The food was wonderful. We had the meatball trio , they were so good., the best I’ve had at a restaurant. I loved how they plated the meatball on delicious ricotta cheese . The mussels were great and the margarita pizza was awesome, made with ricotta and Mozzarella fresh basil and chunks of ripe red tomatoes. Wonderful I look forward to going again
