Waitress was great...food was delicious
The ricotta/truffle/honey appetizer was unreal!
Food was great! Service was excellent. I have no complaints.
Food was DELICIOUS. Chicken San Remo highly recommended. Server was running around everywhere and not very personable, didn’t try and get to know me at all, and didn’t talk very much (I understand it was busy). Tables were very close by so I got to overhear other peoples conversations (didn’t like that). Price wasn’t awful. Would go again and would recommend. Plus they validate parking, so that removes a lot of hassle.
Bread was highlight of meal. Chicken franchise was soggy and tasteless. Pasta was ok but not hot. Waiter defended the dish and was dismissive, had no interest in engaging with us. He actually looked around restaurant when talking. We felt very rushed. He slammed a shot of limoncello on the table and said “here, try this” and walked away. No wonder I was able to get a reservation that day. No other reputable Italian restaurant was available.
Food and server were great, although more salt and pepper couldn’t hurt. However, I was uncomfortable with a table that was seated close by. They were staring at my boyfriend and I as if we didn’t belong there and they weren’t hiding the fact that they were staring. As a black woman, I try to avoid using “my blackness” as an issue but I was not pleased as I left because they seemed relieved that we were leaving.
We had a very lovely time and our server was kind enough to confirm that my food was compatible with a dietary restriction, which I appreciated very much. We will be back!
Great food, great service, great music & atmosphere!
The food was second to none and the service was just as outstanding. Might go again tomorrow :)!
Always good food and the service was great.
We look forward to coming back.
We have been going to LaScala’s before every WST show for 3 years because of the food and drinks. This is the first time we were disappointed. I would always have 2 or 3 red sangria’s. It had a bad taste to it. I only drank half of one glass. My chicken parm and pasta had a strong taste of parmigian cheese, it’s all u good taste. I ate half of the plate. My husband’s pork chop was bland, it was tasteless and our Caesar salad was dry. Couldn’t taste any dressing. On the up side the mash potatoes and sausage, peppers and onions were delicious.
Food is always top notch at La Scala's. I especially like the Chicken Sorrento because it combines Chicken, Cheese, Eggplant, and Mushrooms along with my favorite pasta, Linguini.
Amazing italian food. The tomato sauce was a highlight. This is better italian food than I had in Italy. Thank you so much for carrying on the family tradition!
LaScala's never disappoints! The food, atmosphere and service are fantastic! Always our favorite restaurant to visit after a show at the Walnut Street Theatre.
Waiter not knowledgeable. Food was good. Service was on time and friendly. We ordered items and waiter knew we were ordering for meat free, vegetarian on some items. Still brought them out and said oh this does have meat. On reservation stated it was daughters bday and nothing was ever mentioned. Had to ask. It was just okay, nothing exceptional. Staff refilling water and clearing plates was awesome.
I use OpenTable especially when I am visiting cities where I do not live, and want to select a restaurant, often on vacation or a special occasion. The reviews for LaScala were not at all representative of the restaurant where I hosted 11 people for my son’s 21st birthday this past weekend. When we arrived, 5 minutes after the 7:30 reservation time, the hostess seemed flustered and did not have a table ready for us, despite having booked it weeks in advance and confirmed earlier in the day. Not a good start. Apparently, a 2-top was lingering on a large banquette wall, right in the center, where they had intended to seat us. After 5 minutes I showed her another area in the dining room and said, “what about putting those tables together”....voila!
All in all, it felt like an Olive Garden type restaurant, with goopy pastas, bland soggy pizzas and hard, tasteless meatballs. But....the prices were not Olive Garden prices. Would not go back.
My family enjoyed ourselves. The food was excellent and our server, Rosario was very professional and helpful with our suggestions.
Most of the food was great except for the chicken. Service was slow and not too attentive. Free parking is a plus.
Did not appreciate being seated with crying babies and families without being asked for a preference and there were choices available.
I am a big chicken parm fam and LaScala’s is the best
Excellent all around from service to food to atmosphere.
Always good food and good service!
Love this spot I have been dining here for years it’s always my go2 when I’m Downtown with the wife and we have never been disappointed with the food or service and the new look is just right w/ the lighting
Great food - good service. We had two waiters that kept interrupting us asking us the same questions each time...was very annoying.
This was our first visit to LaScala. The atmosphere and service were fine. The main course was veal parmesan. The pasta was overcooked and the veal so thickly breaded that it was hard to determine the actual meat. The prices would have been reasonable for an excellent meal but the price was too high for such a mediocre plate. It was very disappointing.
Heard there is a new chef. Food was not as good.
Food and service was just ok. I probably won’t go back-too many other good options in area.
Overall food with good. Only compaint was the Tuna. It was cut into slices which were much too think and influenced the taste of the tuna....should have been very thinly sliced.
This is our go-to place before a show at the Walnut Street Theatre because the food is always good? This time we tried something new, the artichoke starter and it was delicious! The staff were so nice and attentive without being intrusive! Love it!
We enjoyed our experience at La Scala.
My sister recommended it.
The staff were very helpful.
We would enjoy dining with you again.
I had not been there for a while, the food is not what I expected.
Had such a wonderful time! The food was DELISH. Come hungry because they do not skimp on the portions. The atmosphere is tidy and romantic. We had such an amazing night and can not wait to return.
I ordered my favorite entree Spicy Tuna. It is not spicy but it is so so yummy. My husband had a pasta dish & the pasta is so so good. The waiter was very accomodating.
We love the back room.
Perfect dinner in town.
The service was absolutely horrible, this place should never never participate in restaurant Week, we ask for manger so we can get service and we where told he’s to busy working at bar, very poor customer service ☹️☹️👎🏽👎🏽👎🏽👎🏽👎🏽
Great food...awesome place!
It was amazing from beginning to end! First off, the free bread is delicious and so hot and fresh. The meals are so plentiful, each of us had to take it home for leftovers, and as a poor graduate student, this was perfect! I highly recommend the tiramisu for dessert. It was so delicious that we each had to get our own. I’m definitely coming back!
We had an incredible Restaurant Week experience at LaScala’s. The portions were huge and we left full with plenty of leftovers. The Meatball Trio was pretty good and I’m VERY picky with regards to meatballs (hard to beat my father’s). The Chicken Marsala was delicious; I haven’t had a good Marsala in a long time. The Tiramisu was a great dessert. Overall, I was very impressed and would definitely recommend to all.
We went to LaScala’s for Restaurant Week and it didn’t disappoint. The food was delicious (highly recommended the muscles) and they definitely did not skimp on the portion size. The wait staff was excellent and very attentive. I can’t wait to go back again!
Service was excellent and food was excellent
Great food and service . Could not ask for a better experience .
