The salmon and meatball dishes were burnt. How to you burn meatballs? I have had much better meals at their other locations. Very disappointing.

Our waitress was so so nice! She made our experience so much better and she is one of the nicest waitresses I’ve ever had. She made sure to really emphasize our friend’s birthday! Our waitress’s last name is Smith I remember. It was my friends and I’d first time in the city by ourselves and she gave us all sorts of suggestions on what to do in Philadelphia. It was really a great experience! I will definitely come back!

We ordered LaScala chopped salad and cheesesteak Stromboli. The salad was quite good, great mixture of all the ingredients and just the right amount of dressing. Stromboli had good flavor but the inside was room temperature, which was unexpected given that the exterior dough portion was hot. Attentive. friendly waitress.

Food was very good but not extraordinary. The remodeling of the place was a pleasant surprise. A much brighter and modern look. I also enjoyed the many draft beer selections.

It's been a long time since I had Seafood Fra Diavlo and this was an excellent example. You'll love it if you like spicy foods. It has Shrimp, Mussels, Clams, Squid, Crabmeat, Linguini.

We had high expectations. Unfortunately we were a bit disappointed. Service was great, summer sangria was tasty and refreshing. Besides that, food was just so-so. Temperature was inconsistent and the sauce tasted bland and store-bought (not freshly homemade). Ambience was nice, but we will probably not go back because the food not worth the price and there are much better places to dine in the city.

First time here since restrictions have been lifted and what a difference! Completely redecorated, quite attractive.
Service was a bit off - food came very quickly, but my own delivered well ahead of my companions!!’

The food was outstanding -- ingredients were very fresh, from the arugula salad to the ravioli, chicken milanese, and tiramisu! The room was very loud though.

This restaurant is one of the great gems in Center city Philadelphia I can’t recommend it enough. I’ve paid so much more for so much worse in other towns, and this meal was amazing in every way. If you like a real Italian meal with great service and at an amazingly low price, this is your choice.

It wasn't bad at all! I enjoy the food and restaurant. They drowned my Margherita pizza in a bit of olive oil but outside of that, it was very good!

Kevin, our waiter, was fantastic. He was very attentive and was always there when we were ready for necessary service. Food was prepared, served as ordered and portions were generous.
The staff did not push us out after we had finished our meal. We spent close to 3 hours enjoying the company of our friends and the ambience of LaScala's.
Thank you for a very nice experieince.

We love the renovations! More modern and uplifting.

Service is average or slightly better. Some waiters seem to be “troubled” when there is an issue re part of the meal.

I really think the busboys need training. On more than one occasion, they have attempted to clear the dishes before we were done (we still wanted the food on the plate) not even asking if we were done, and just the other night, physically knocked into my husband to clear the table as we were trying to leave.
