Great place! We love it after the Saturday or Sunday Matinee at the Walnut Street Theatre. Ask for table 8 and Carolyn.

A retirement celebration for a coworker, group of 9. Everyone enjoy their meals, which included cheesesteak Stromboli, calamari, chicken parmigiana and lasagna. Service was great. Waiter Kevin was awesome and even gave the soft drinks complimentary. Will definitely return

This was the perfect location to grab a bite to eat before seeing a show. It is only a few quick blocks to Walnut Street Theatre and the food was awesome.

Again, we dined at LaScala's which we have on many, many occasions and are still very pleased. We had a wonderful and delicious post-theater dinner. My husband and I both had the Chicken Parmesan served with Linguini and it was absolutely wonderful. We had that the previous time we dined there and loved it, so we had it again and they did not disappoint!!! Both entrees were served with a delicious tomato sauce with mozzarella cheese melted on top. Both were served very hot and quickly.
We will be back again for sure, either before or after going to the Walnut Street Theatre.
Thank you LaScala's for being so dependable! We certainly can count on you fir a great meal.

We had a reservation for 2 people and were directed to our seats promptly at arrival, however our seating arrangement was so cramped that we could sit at the table because the patrons in the adjoining seats had pushed back into the area designated for us. We requested another table and were told the only available one was a high-top table next to the bar which was crowded and very noisy. We did not have the ability (or were offered) to wait for better seating since we had theatre tickets for the night. This was not the first time that this happened. A good place but be aware of the seating.

With one night in Philly, I wanted to make sure I selected a restaurant with good reviews for food and service. Great service, Arancini and pizza were wonderful. I read a few reviews raving about the rigatoni. A couple mentioned the food was salty, but I thought it may have been from folks who are more low sodium in their eating habits. I like to salt my food. Well, the rigatoni was salty. Not so much that I didn’t eat it, but half the dish was all I needed and I wouldn’t order it again. Tiramisu was excellent. We didn’t care for the banana chocolate chip bread pudding. That being said, definitely would go back for the pizza. I sampled some of the Hot Italian pizza

Great dinner at La Scala's Fire - my wife and I both had veal dishes (marsala and piccata, respectively) and both were delicious, perfectly sauced and tender. I also had the Caesar salad, which was one of the best I have had recently. Had the chocolate cake and cannoli (respectively) for dessert and, again, both were scrumptious! Service was spot on (terrific male server, but can't recall his name), attentive but not overbearing, and endorsed the Black IPA, which I tried and loved. All in all, a perfect end to a long day in Philly. Highly recommend!
