    First time going and had zero expectations. It was amazing! Apps: caprese, wild mushroom arancini, cheesesteak eggrolls (best ever - hands down). Dinner: mushroom truffle pizza and shrimp/crab linguini. Everything was phenomenal. Can't wait to go back and order different items! The decor/ambiance is really nice too. Our waiter (who was also the bartender) was super nice.

    Our meal for fathers' day was disappointing. Our daughter's pizza came out a full 10 minutes after our entrees, so our food was cold waiting for her., and when it finally came out it was overdone. My son's spicy tuna entree was very well done and tough to eat. His spicy margarita was so strong that it was undrinkable. We asked the waiter to please bring him a Stella instead and he did not take the margarita off the bill even though it was untouched.

    We went to Lascala's Fire for Father's Day brunch. Unfortunately, they only serve lunch, not brunch. However, the food was very good and the services was great. Everyone enjoyed what they ordered. We had a great afternoon. I recommend the restaurant.

    Very disappointing. Have been there many times before with good experiences. This time, not good at all. At our table, food came from the kitchen to each guest at different times. Some were eating, as others waited. Complaints were made about the quality of the food to the server, for the manager, that never came to our table. The prices of the food has gone up, we understand, inflation, but not if the service and quality suffer.

    Service was good. Pizza was amazing. Chicken parmigiana was ok. Pasta with the chicken parmigiana tasted like it was cook the day before and reheated. Told the waiter and he apologized and told the manager. Didn’t offer to make it right. Beet salad with grilled salmon was ok, not great. If I was to go back I would only get pizza, which was by far the best thing we had.

    Heavy menu for lunch. Same as dinner menu. Food was not memorable - gloppy baked eggplant and dry pasta & clams. Service was incredibly poor with highly distracted waitress unable to respond to simple requests like cream for a coffee. If service is improved it would look like a nice evening place. Also note hard surfaces make for a very loud place even when only 1/3 full.

    Normally all menu items are great but the burrato board was not. Tomatoes were hard pucks disguised with balsamic. Never had thick sliced prosciutto with odd flavor. 4 of us tried it and all spit it out, politely. I told the waiter my observations and he said he'd tell the kitchen. I don't believe that will happen.

    It was to celebrate a birthday. Our server, Carlos had a great personality and the food was fantastic! My only criticism was our outside table was completely in the hot sun by the time our meal was finished. Other than that, our meal and experience was first class! I would definitely go back.

    Went there on recommendation. The service was good, attentive wait staff. Drinks were good, appetizer was fantastic! My entree was delicious, my husbands dish not good at all. His veal marsala was chewy over linguine with what was supposed to be marsala sauce. The sauce was like a broth and the taste of the pasta was compared to a ramen type dish. We communicated to the wait staff that he didn’t like the meal, hardly eaten. To our surprise we were charged for the meal. We requested to speak to the manger who was shielded by her front room staff and hard to get to. Eventually she gave her attention to my husband and after his explanation of the entree she reluctantly gave him a gift card for the price of the entree. We just wanted to provide feedback of the food and since it was not eaten get our money back. How can you consciously charge for something that was terrible and not consumed. We will return and give it another chance.

    Service during lunch was disappointing. Waiter was inattentive to take the order and had to be asked twice for the check. Also he never checked with us to make sure there were no issues with the meals.

    All 7 of us liked the food. I was very satisfied with the clam dish, great sauce. The cheese steak and chicken breast panini where a bit of a surprise, use of pizza dough instead of bread, though waiter described the steak sandwich completely at order time. We enjoyed our get together, seated in the smaller front room away from the main room though the noise level still made hearing each other very difficult even when shouting. Our waiter, Kevin was excellent, attentive, friendly at same time professional. We plan to return to order other appealing dishes on the menu, maybe on a week day, hoping for less noise.
