Four coworkers that have not been out to lunch in a year enjoyed salads at one of our favorite restaurants. We all loved our lunch, host and waitstaff were welcoming and attentive.

Everything was fine except my entree came with my husband s appetizer
It was corrected without losing its quality
Most of the wines I liked were served by the bottle
My wine was fair
All in all it’s a place to go back to
For what we ordered the service was slow

Excellent service and attention by our server made the evening comfortable. La Scala's Fire food is good, but, for us, the portions were too large. I'll dine here again.

I and several friends have been eating lunch monthly at LaScala's (and now LaScala's Fire) for years. Food is always good and consistent, prices are reasonable, staff is personable and efficient.

Husband and I really enjoyed our meal. Burrata board was delicious and paired well with the Chianti. Meal portions are meant for sharing, which we also loved. Had the Zeppole for dessert, which was worth every bit of the extra calories they may have contained.

Went for the Restaurant Week and the food was just ok. Wasn’t overly tasty. I saw a review about the calamari being good but it wasn’t cooked fully and the Chicken Marsala needed more seasoning. My girlfriend liked the Rigatoni Vodka but the mussels were almost half empty when they arrived. The desserts were definitely the best part of the night. I probably won’t be back but it’s worth a shot.

I loved my entree (rigatoni vodka), my fiancé thought his was bland (pasta with peas). Dessert was amazing! The service was slow but we weren’t in a rush so that’s ok! Otherwise, I would go again. The complimentary garage parking was also a huge bonus

My children took me here for dinner and it was absolutely fabulous! The ambiance was very relaxing, roomy and quiet. The menu was perfect it had all of my appetizer and seafood favorites. The calamari melted in my mouth, the LaScala fries were hot, spicy with just the right amount of seasoning but a little lite on the crabmeat. My Mediterranean salad was delicious I added the tuna and it was moist flavorful and cooked to perfection. The cosmopolitan packed a punch and the sundae for dessert was enough for three. The service was slow but due to Covid I’m not going to complain about working people who are doing their best in these trying time! My server was very attentive but it did take quite some time for the food to arrive. I highly recommend this for any occasion!

Everything was good including the service, how fast the food arrived, etc., except the pizza. The pizza was very soggy on the bottom however the flavors were there.

Went during restaurant week and got their 3 course special. Salad appetizers were terrific. The Caesar was to die for. The veal Sam Remo was also terrific. The Italian pasta and peas entree was just ok. Way too spicy for us to finish though. Tiramisu was terrific for dessert although the bread in the bread pudding was burnt and inedible. Overall, I’d eat there again base on the Caesar and veal alone. The real downfall though was the service. They seemed extremely short staffed. It took forever to get drinks and refills required you to track someone down as they never came back to check on you. After 25 minute of waiting, we had to get up to find someone to give us the bill. Maybe they are still in the post pandemic staffing shortage. Too bad, it’s a nice place.

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.
