The food was very good - we had a buffalo chicken pizza and a roasted beet salad. It was also decently priced and our server was great. My only issue is with the atmosphere - it’s very stark and not warm. Also the music playing was a bit loud and fast for lunchtime.

First time here and cannot wait to go back!! Went for my husbands birthday dinner, and already made plans to come this weekend with friends! Food was outstanding, drinks are amazing, and my husband had a perfect view of the game from our table. Not TVs in your face, perfectly placed so you can see them if you want to! Chopped salad and ricotta board are unreal!!

We were seated by the front door so it was very cold. Had our coats on the whole time. We asked to be move but by the time they got around to it all our food was there. Making it way too late. The food arrived really fast and made no sense in the order it came! We tried take out there as well another time. They could not find our order even though it was sitting right there on their getting cold.

Large menu, creative options. Quality of food is noticeable and taste is enjoyable and different for each dish (we sampled about 8 different items). Clean and oversized tables support sampling and sharing plates (and lends to a more enjoyable experience since you’re not jammed in). Larger portions for the price makes you feel like you’re not being ripped off (as seems to be the trend in many restaurants these days). Would go back again!

Amazing food and services. I’m so glad this one was put out here in the suburbs. I’m from Philly but moved here many years ago and would go into the city to get a good meal. Lascalas was a favorite in the city and i love that it’s now a 15 minute ride for us with tons of parking.

Everything was delicious-third time there! My only comment would be to turn down the lighting a bit in the evening-it’s like a church hall. The first time I was there, it was perfect. The next two times, too bright. Other than that-great!

Food was good not exceptional. Caesar salad did not have enough dressing and beet salad was swimming with dressing. Both were large salads and could have been shared. Veal piccata was inedible-garlic overpowered capers. Without asking the waitress did remove the charge for it.
It was very loud on a Friday night but will give it another try.

First time dining at La Scala. The overall vibe was upbeat, playing great music and a fun environment! We were celebrating a birthday and our server brought us a slice of tiramisu and it was outstanding. Happens to be one of my fav desserts. The beet salad was sheer perfection. Everyone enjoyed their meal. Our server was excellent as well! We will be going back.

Great new addition to the neighborhood. All the appetizers and salads so far have been excellent. Pizza is just. The stuffed crust pizza is a bit of a mess. Every other dish was great! Salads, Meatballs, Burrata, Wings... All amazing

FINALLY! Great Italian food on the Main Line! Everything was fabulous. Pasta cooked perfectly - generous portions on everything. Our server Susie is a gem! Loved her humor and attentiveness - a professional all the way. We will be making this a weekly stop ! Hostess was polite and looked us in the eye upon greeting (so tired of the mumbling college coeds at other restaurants acting like they are SO bored....) Lovely space! Kudos! Only wish you could make a reservation for outside tables (they are first come first serve).

I was disappointed that we were unable to dine outside as was requested when I made the reservation. We were seated inside but the distance between tables was acceptable.
Kevin was our server. He was filling in so he was not sure of all the vodkas available. So, he went to check for me and to my delight, Chopin was on the menu.
We ordered the truffle fries, which were definitely calorie worthy and the baked eggplant parmesan for the appys. Yum. For my dinner, I had the mussels marinara and the guys had the chicken parmesan. Loved by all. Limencello cake and the chocolate cake finished a perfect meal. Kevin was awesome. Attentive but not obtrusive. Looking forward to going back. Hopefully outside!
