    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.

    The outdoor seating needs a little love - the table was broken on the corners. However, the food was great and the service was quick for a perfect lunch.

    Got crabmeat on a salad. It smelled very fishy, but fortunately I didn't get sick. As an appetizer I had artichokes that sounded great but were way too greasy. I only at a small piece and told the waitress it wasn’t good. She should have taken off of the bill but she was new ( I think) and didnt know any better. It used to be Main and Vine. I wish that restaurant didn’t close.

    La Scala was great. I have been to different locations. The service yesterday was par and the food was good. The noise level was a bit loud because of the crowd. However, I will still continue to go to La Scala.

    We love LaScala and have dined multiple times - at least once a month, but Saturday night the noise level from a party was so loud and distracting, and our waiter had a very needy table in the section so our entree order wasn't taken for at least 15-20 mins into our seating. We will definitely return, but I wanted to share the feedback from our latest visit. The food is always perfect. Because of the delay from our waiter, we also passed on ordering drinks.

    First time at this restaurant and we'll definitely be back. Outdoor patio was not crowded and comfortable with the heat lamp on (in April). We had pasta for our entrees this time. Will try the pizza next time. Calamari was delicious as an appetizer.

    Service was good, but drink order and food order was taken at same time and food came out before drinks. They bring it out as soon as it is made, so if you want to drink and talk first, don't order food right away. Outside tables are pleasant and it is easier to talk there than inside.

    Sat on the patio on a beautiful day. Food was very good, nd set up was nice. Seemed to only have one server for the patio, which wasn't enough. He was pleasant and tried, but just under staffed. Great new find though, convenient location for off 476.

    My bad. I thought it was more of a dinner restaurant. It would be a great place for pizza, beer and burgers after a Villanova game. It was sparsely occupied when we walked and, but it was LOUD. And it just got louder as it filled up. We ordered a shared app, which was good, and two chicken entrees. My chicken parm was fine, the sauce on the pasta was watery, though. My husband ordered the chicken piccata, found it flavorless and didn’t like it at all, didn’t eat it. The waitress noted, he told her he didn’t like it. Not a hint of lemon. The manager came right over, offered to replace, but he declined. We split a desert, and enjoyed that. The manager took the chicken piccata off the bill. As I said, maybe I should have investigated a little further. I’m thinking maybe lunch with the girls sometime.
