We had an excellent experience. The sauce on the mussels was fantastic. You should bottle it. Phil did a great job.

The pizza was excellent. The salads that we had were all good. Service was very poor, had to wait a long time for the server and the place was not too busy.

Service was great and Luigi took terrific care of us. He explained all the specialties, his favorites, the chef's recommendations, etc. Chianti was super, salad cold and crisp; my colleague had a full meal with pasta (excellent) and I had the mushroom pizza and salad. A terrific evening and they took care of us.

This freshly redone place is so bright, welcoming and comfortable. Expanded menu is great and some old standards, like chicken marsala, are still wonderful. Had a great, kind, attentive waiter - four older women were treated very well indeed! We truly cannot wait to go back and try some pizza and other things. It's great having this place in the neighborhood and knowing we'll get great food there every time!

Food was fantastic, minus the truffle fries which were not truffle-y at all. Service + waitstaff aren’t super accommodating and friendly. Seemed disorganized. Good place to grab a quick bite

Read reviews about this place and wanted to try local Italian. Was disappointed to walk in and see tv’s everywhere. More like a sports bar than an Italian place.
We ordered the Mista salad and margarita pizza for apps both were ok. For mains we got the salmon, chicken piccata and pasta with vodka sauce. Of the three the pasta was the best but it was not freshly made pasta. Both the chicken and salmon lacked flavor. Canned mushrooms for the piccata? Oh come on! Gramma would disappointed!

The food was fresh and delicious. We liked the free flowing service all food was brought to the table hot and fresh was great for sharing a few different things. The service was good and the social distancing was done well. We felt safe and enjoyed our first meal out, inside as it almost felt normal.

Chicken marsala was delicious and plentiful. Had to wait awhile for my order. Watched two tables come in after me getting served several courses. I think they might have been short-handed at one of the stations. Greeting at door was pleasant and service was friendly. I would return and get one of the nice high tops near window. Great location if you're at Independence Mall.

The last time I dined in LaScala's was 2007. They have upgraded their look (which is beautiful) but their food was even more amazing than the last times I've dined there! Definitely satisfying and of course, I will be back!!!

My husband and I went to LaScalas for a quick lunch. The host was friendly and seated us at a window table high top. Kevin was our server. He was on point! Not a big talker but a friendly and attentive server. A+.
I had the chicken Milanese which looked spectacular but could have used less balsamic drizzle (personal preference) maybe get it in the side, instead. My husband ordered a steak and cheese Stromboli. It was good but huge and he didn’t finish it or take it home. Overall, a decent lunch. Service was better than the food - this time.
