    It was our first time and it's restaurant week. The staff were really overwhelmed. Making them forgetful, and making you wait too long for somethingthat yoy asked them for. It's too much for them having to bus their tables & run food. The food is great!! Comes out steaming hot, your leftovers are still hot in the box when u get home! They give very generous portions. The only thing, when your food is done it fone right out even if other people at your table have theirs yet.

    We came to eat here a few months ago and tried the Ricotta Board - the bread with Ricotta and Honey with crispy bread. It was stunning. We went back when we were downtown last night. AND it was just like it was last time and more. Sinfully decadent but well worth it. Their entrees are always delicious. Lasagna, salmon, and bolognese are our favs. The staff is fabulous. The ambience is good. Not a special atmosphere but it is what it is. We love it.

    It was our second trip. The food is amazing and the portions are huge! The calamari is some of the best I’ve had, and the banana bread pudding is wonderful! It’s about one block from the Liberty Bell.

    My husband and I took our mothers here for restaurant week and had an incredible experience. The food was amazing across the board from the classic pastas to the grilled salmon. Restaurant week crowds definitely accounted for the volume level, so I think going during normal hours outside the event would give you a better space to quietly talk amongst yourselves. The service was fast and friendly, our waiter made the time to check in with us regularly despite the crowd. We’re definitely going back in the future. Make sure to try to Lemoncello cake, it’s to die for!

    It was “Restaurant Week”, so we decided to start with one of our favorite places. Kind of disappointing this time around as the first course was very good (that being salad) but everything else was just so/so; which included dessert. However, considering the good times and food we have had here in the past, we will be back.

    Food was hit-or-miss. Veal parmigiana was good but the chicken milanese was overcooked and drowned in too much balsamic glaze. Kudos for leaving a water bottle on the table so customers can refill their glasses; more restaurants should do that. Service was good despite how busy they were. Food comes out as it’s ready, which means you might get entrees before done with appetizers, and that some people’s entrees could be much later than others.

    No fought of the waiter the service was horrible. Food wasn’t as good as it use to be. Per the waiter two different chefs cooking. Two people ordered the same entree - totally different outcome. The appetizers were okay. Everyone’s food came out at different times (in 10-15 minute increments) where people were waiting to eat their food since people at the table were still waiting for their food. I would not be dining here again. Not sure what happen to the great service and food here.

    Service was very good. Sat outside, but it is on street so noisy. Food and wine were quite acceptable. Mussels were excellent; spicy tuna and salmon were good. However, LaScalas is just not in the same league as Tatuula's garden either in ambiance or food but almost as expensive.

    A small group of us went to LaScala to celebrate my friend’s retirement. We hadn’t seen each other in months. We knew LaScala - the food, service and atmosphere- and was not disappointed. We had a delicious meal and enjoyed catching up while having great service and totally great experience there. I highly recommend this restaurant- has always delivered an all around amazing experience.

    Very nice Italian restaurant close to attractions in Old City and to the theater district. The food is exceptional at this price, beautifully presented, and the servings are huge - each entree would have been enough for two. The house wine was good with a generous pour as well. The Lasagna is always a family favorite, and the veal and salmon entrees we ordered were also exceptional. Food comes out surprisingly quickly from this large, open kitchen. Prior to the pandemic we were regular visitors for pre-theater dining - Walnut Street Theater is a 5 minute walk away. This was our first time back in a couple of years, and things had definitely changed - the restaurant received a complete facelift. It used to have this kind of older vibe with with darker colors, servers in button-down shirts, nice linens, etc. I think it felt a bit more intimate and "fancy". Now everything is very white and very bright and has a modern, industrial feel to it. However, the walls continue to be covered with these lovely enlarged photos of a time long gone. We could definitely see how the new ambience would make the restaurant more inviting to a larger group of people who can look in the large full-wall windows from the street. A few add-ons that are so important to our family - the restaurant is easily handicapped accessible. One of the most comfortable and accessible I have been in. The restrooms are always clean. Staff are friendly, (although our server this time seemed a bit new). Parking is FREE - clean, safe lot connected to the building LaScalla's is in.
