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!

First time visiting the establishment which turned out to be for Valentine's Day. Couldn't have been more pleased. The food was outstanding and the atmosphere was well received. Will definitely visit in the future!

My favorite restaurant in Old City. The chicken parm is the best in Philadelphia! Highly recommend it!

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.

Nicely executed classic Italian menu. Professional service, comfortable atmosphere. Will be tagging for future visits. Highly recommended, can accommodate larger parties.

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.
