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

This place was absolutely awesome! We arrived about an hour earlier than expected and wanted to see if we could be seated earlier than our reservation had said. Unfortunately, they had a private party in the next room and could not seat us any earlier. The hostess kindly recommended we hang out at the bar while we wait for our table but it was so packed that we decided to check out another bar across the street while we waited. Once it was our reservation time, we were seated without delay. The food was delicious and the portions were HUGE! I ordered the filet mignon and babe got the chicken parm. We shared calamari and mussels white for our appetizers. The atmosphere was awesome and the huge street windows were beautiful. The place is a little on the more expensive side but the portions definitely make up for it! Definitely a great date night place. Will go again!

Whenever we are in Philadelphia, we make sure to dine at LaScala. Always a relaxing occasion with a varied menu and good food. The staff is very accommodating and does not rush you. Highly recommended.

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!!!

We were having an early dinner prior to the theatre and the menu offered a nice variety of options, service was prompt and food was good. My only complaint is $6.00 for a cappuccino - that really seems excessive!

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.
