Scala Osteria offers traditional Southern Italian, seafood-centered recipes meant to be shared with family and friends in our warm and vibrant dining room. Our menu is influenced by the traditional Italian osteria where creating simple yet delicious food is paramount, and our atmosphere is always inviting and full of life. From our beautiful oyster bar to our house-made pastas and Neapolitan style pizzas, we have something for everyone. We offer varying experiences, from folks grabbing a quick bite on their lunch hour, to couples stopping in to delight in our Oyster Bar, to parties spending hours enjoying delicious Southern Italian fare with perfectly paired wines. Sister restaurant to valley favorite, Bistro Don Giovanni, Scala Osteria is located on vibrant First Street in the heart of Downtown Napa. We are open daily for lunch, dinner from 11:30am to 10pm and late night service from 10-11pm.

    Food was good, had the mushroom sausage pizza along with the octopus salad and pasta special of the day. Service overall attentive. Noise level is so high you can barely hear your dining partner, let alone someone from another table wanting to ask you a question. Not the place for someone looking for a quiet place to dine.

    Lovely dining experience for our anniversary! We were greeted with a hand written card, and “farewelled” with a candle in the most fabulous tiramisu for dessert! Excellent, friendly service, the food was outstanding, (the lemon ricotta ravioli was divine) and the atmosphere is lively and beautiful! Would love to return next time we’re in Napa!

    I hate to speak so highly of my meals here because I know it will attract more people and result in even harder to get reservations! But, it’s really one of the best restaurants in Napa, in my opinion. The menu, food quality, wine list and cocktails, ambiance and service are always consistently top notch and it’s just a fun place to be. Plenty of gluten free options too if you care about that. Good bar for after work drinks too!

    4 Napa locals out for dinner… food was ok. Expensive for what we got. Staff was not overly friendly, had limited knowledge of the wine list and seemed uninterested in helping us find a wine to share. The thing that will prevent us from going back to Scala was that before being finished with our wine, dessert and conversation, we were asked to leave so others could be seated at our table. We’ve never had this happen in any other restaurant- ever!

    A very intimate space at first glance but very comfortable once seated. Went for Valentines Day for the first time, but we could imagine this restaurant gets busy often. I would have given 6 stars but we forgot our donuts at the end of the night. Honestly if you’re thinking of trying this restaurant, stop thinking and do it. Shout out to James for the great drinks.

    From the moment we arrived they greeted us with a warm and responsive approach. We really didn’t wait long and it was Valentines Day so understand a little wait, but they took that very seriously and everyone including the manager stopped by to check on us. They bought us a glass of sparkling wine and an appetizer to thank us for our patience. This place understands how to take care of a patron. Highest marks possible from us.

    Delicious dinner at Scala.It was Valentines Day so very busy.Had a reservation which I highly recommend.We were seated right away.From the drinks to appetizer to main course to dessert the timing was perfect.All the staff were very friendly.Calamari appetizer was perfectly fried.My husband had Lasagna and I had the Pork Milanese with a side of brussel sprouts.I would recommend both these entrees.If looking for a great place to go in downtown Napa Scala Osteria is the one to try.

    Really great experience at Scala. We had our anniversary dinner and everyone knew about our special event from the greeter, the waiter and even the GM came by and congratulated us. When we were seated we found a hand-written card from the GM congratulating us. WOW, very impressive. One of the best and thoughtful treatment we ever experienced. The food, service and ambience was excellent. Thanks so much for a great evening that we will surely remember.
