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 food was amazing. I got the ricotta ravioli and it’s honestly the best pasta i’ve ever eaten in my life.

We really enjoyed dinner at LaScala's Fire. We ate on a busy weekend night and the food was fast, fresh, and delicious. Our waiter and the rest of the staff were very attentive and accommodating.

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.

I was quite late in reaching the restaurant due to an appointment that took far too long. The server seating my two guests and was very attentive until I arrived. He continued to be very understanding and helpful. The food was excellent. Although there were such large portions that each of us took food home. And it was great the next day. This was not my first visit to LaScala, and it won't be my last.

We went for a pre-Valentines dinner when staying in the city. We were forced into a very early reservation a few days in advance. The restaurant was completely empty. When another couple showed up about 45 minutes later, the host chose to sit them right next to us. It was unfortunate that with plenty of space they couldn’t give both of us a little more privacy.

Food was good but not excellent ( my caprese included a very mealy tomato) and I was surprised that no dinner specials were offered. We did indulge in a special cocktail and were delighted with it. Safe choice for eating in the city for price and options but was not an exceptional experience.

Food was excellent. There were times where the service of bringing dessert and food was slow mainly because it was their first day back and I think that this will improve.

Went with friends per the good reviews. Food was AMAZING!! Service was good too (never a dirty plate left on our table). Outside seating though with heaters wasn’t really separated by any barriers and it was breezy. Overall I would recommend this restaurant for Excellent Food.

We were treated extremely poorly at this restaurant . They were rude to us , waiter ignored us for the most part and they seemed to be in a rush to get us out as they didn’t even try and offer the dessert menu. Wondering if the staff hasn’t experienced a diverse clientele - we are brown and noticed that the host talked to us in a certain tone of voice that seemly didn’t seem like it made sense to address customers this way. Very put off . The best part of the experience was the free parking at the garage. The food itself was average. The mussels and pizza were good and the gnocchi was rubbery.

Went mid pandemic when you could only sit outside, it was chilly but food was awesome. Pricing is SUPER reasonable and I loved the pizza I got! Great for a bite with friends and I can't wait to go back to sit inside (:
