Waiter told us that the style of the restaurant was a rolling kitchen- that was ok except the main courses came out before appetizer- at that point- we didn’t want appetizers-

A drink was spilled on me by the waitress. Wasn’t just a little- I was literally wringing liquid out of my clothes and had to sit in wet jeans for the whole meal.

I felt bad and was incredibly understanding, but I expected the drinks to be compensated and was disappointed that they were not, I feel like comping my $6 drink would have been a nice gesture.

Food was not great. Wings had overpowering ginger to it. Pizza stated sweet and spicy but was basically bbq sauce over pizza. Pasta was over cooked.

The hostess seated our friends when they arrived before I arrived. When we checked with the hostess we were informed we did not have a reservation. I told her we do and gave her our confirmation. Meanwhile our friends are at a table waiting for me. I am at the bar with my wife waiting for my friends. After 1/2 hr. had gone by we texted our friends and we got together.
The seating system needs an upgrade.

It was obvious that they were understaffed but the staff that they did have were extremely hard workers and did all that they could in order to make sure customers were happy. Food is amazing, well priced and the atmosphere was very chill.

Food is very good. Service was very weak. No waiter assigned so we need to ask. Apps took forever and came out 5 minutes apart. Dinners came out 5 mins apart. Very bright interior.
Because of food, we gave it a very good overall.

This is my second time at LaScalas Fire. I will not be back. The food is average at best. For an upscale looking place, it is disappointing and very noisy.

We ate outside since it was too noisy inside. Our appetizers and my husbands main course came out all at once. My main course never came. We asked them to remove it from the bill. Apparently there was a mix up in the kitchen and they lost the ticket. 2 of the 4 dishes we received were good.

The mushroom and truffle pizza was amazing. We sat at a high top table near to the bar and it was a bit hard to hear due to the noise level. There are tables in a side room that may make it easier to hear each other. We enjoyed our time though.

If you’re looking for delicious Italian food, this is the place. My friend had a pizza, and I had the Fire panini. Both were mouth watering .We were there early on a Sunday when it wasn’t crowded so I can’t comment on noise level. Service was excellent, and I will definitely return.
