LaScala's - Philadelphia Ratings and Reviews
I asked for two things not on the menu, a cold caprese salad and gnocchi. The server Luigi said no problem, I’m make that for you. First time I had made to order food. And it was simply great. We had a great evening at LaScala and we’ll be back. Could not want better
The food was pretty awful, the lump crab was from a can, everything smelled fishy. The meatballs were bland, as was everything else to be honest. And SO expensive for what we got... NEVER again!! And service was awful, although it seemed he was apathetic as he knew what he was serving was awful. Seriously... not worth even giving it a shot.
I've been there several times. Always good service and good food. The food is generously portioned (too big for me--always end up taking home) so great for people who like a bigger meal. Yesterday, met my son there and had a nice little city reunion since he lives in the city and I do business there regularly.
What I liked about this restaurant is that it is beneath a large building with free parking. You can just pull into the lot and get your parking ticket validated at the desk at LaScala's after you eat. What a great idea. No excuses for not eating down town. Great food and ambiance.
My husband was entertaining a business associate. I felt like the service was not very good. It was early on a Saturday, so not very busy. The waiter never offered parmesan cheese or pepper, which is unusual for an Italian restaurant. We had to ask for both. I got the linguine with clam sauce and found it to be extremely bland. It basically tasted like pasta and clams and no sauce. Very disappointed for the price.
We went to the restaurant prior to going to Walnut Street Theatre. We wound up all choosing restaurant week, and were very pleased. The food portions were substantial and everyone was very happy with their selections, from appetizers to dessert. I highly recommend the restaurant.
Seated almost immediately, great seat (no traffic interference, near window, close to other patrons but far enough away, etc). THE FOOD WAS GREAT! The service was fair. My only concern, because I have never experienced it before, was the disposal of the majority of my meal. I concluded because I did not eat the majority of my meal on location, it would be automatically prepared 'to go', since it was not offered. So I was floored to learn after dessert that the food was trashed! To be clear, I did NOT ask for my food 'to go' either and he did apologize. I don't know if it is the establishments process or the server but I will know for next time. The food was great enough for this not to be a deterrent. I had been there before...yes, I had a 'to go' bag :)
We were here for restaurant week, and both the food and service were top notch! The lobster ravioli was AMAZING; we also loved the creme brûlée cake. For appetizers we did baked caprese, baked eggplant, and arancini balls- highly recommend all of those, too!
Had a reservation for 8:15pm but arrived at 7:45. I was taken to a table with no hesitation. The ambiance is very welcoming, food exceptional and the music makes you want to listen all night.
My waiter was very attentive and helpful. My dining experience at LaScala will have me coming back again and again not to mention free parking. Now that’s top notch!!!
Our waiter Rosario was outstanding! He and his bus boy were very attentive and he made great suggestions. We were a party of 9 in town for two sisters bday and he made the occassion very special. I love this place and would definitely recommend to all to try!
The food was excellent with large portions. The service was also excellent; we had no delays being seated and served. The hostess and greeter were friendly and polite. The dining area was roomy and comfortable. It was truly a delightful experience dining at LaScala and I highly recommend it as a restaurant for a great meal.
I went there on Friday night for my birthday celebration. While we did have to wait 45 mins for our table to be ready even with a reservation, the staff totally made up for it. The awesome bartender gave my friends and I a round of drinks for free due to the long wait. He also gave me another free drink for my birthday. The waiter was quick and friendly. The food was DELICIOUS and portions were huge. The bartender came back over and gave us a free bottle of champagne to celebrate. The staff went above and beyond. My friends and I were very grateful. I would definitely go back there again!
Really good food and service. The happy hour menu was not robust but it does start early enough to where one doesn't have to wait until 5 or 6pm to start. Also, happy hour is confined to the bar and high-top table area and it gets really crowded in that area. Overall, the food and service was excellent. Will come back.
