Food was excellent! Great service. Also great location near Union Square.
Excellent experience with our kids on vacation
The place was just what we wanted: quiet, good food and service. Because of renovations or construction around, there was not a great ambiance.
Had a lovely dinner
Our waiter was amazing and definitely attuned to needs of parents dining with young children (he was great!), but food was just okay.
Always a favorite spot to dine when we are in SF. Wonderful food and friendly staff. They remember us when we return.
Lleno y ruidoso. Con muy buena calidad en las pastas (hechas en casa). Las pizzas son de un solo tamaño (individuales) y están cocinadas en horno de leña. El resto de la comida es bastante estándar. Los precios están muy alineados a otros restaurantes de la zona.
I have dined over the past 20 years at Scala's Bistro. I hadn't been since the major renovation. Now sadly, it resembles a chain coffee shop. At lunchtime only brunch is served on Saturday. The Lunch menu used to available. We settled for pizza and salad. My out of town guest said the food wasn't remarkable as I had promised. Gone is the charm & elegance.
The noise level was perfect, not too quiet and not noisy like a diner. We had a great time. I go to Scala's every time I'm in town with someone new
Great homemade pasta. The service is always very good. This has been one of our favorite restaurants for 15 years.
Good Italian food. Convenient location. Ambiance is nice - not overwhelming "din" like some restaurants. Service/Servers are exceptional!
The menu is limited, it is extremely LOUD. All in all, it is too loud in the restaurant to enjoy the meal. I found myself having to yell with my table mates so we could follow a conversation. My ears are still ringing... Genuinely unpleasant to the point of creating a terrible experience. Fine food should be served in an atmosphere where one can savor the flavors not a simulation of a McDonald's street corner.
Service and overall experience -very good
Delightful meal for a special occasion
Very nice restaurant with great pizza and proseccos. They provide great service. It's a bit pricey, but you are receiving a very good meal.
Picked Scala’s from out of town and arrived for a business dinner. The location was easy to find and experience was wonderful. A diverse menu and welcoming staff makes it a great spot for a biz dinner.
Birthday and Alejandro was excellent
Great for Sunday brunch. Staff excellent and food great - wasn't crowded so very relaxing!
Loved the baked eggs for Sunday brunch!
Our waiter Bruce was the best part of the evening. My 86 year old mom has been going to this restaurant for years and she said Bruce was "old San Francisco" - which is a huge compliment. The asparagus pizza was amazing and way better than I expected!
Excellent meal, house made pasta was perfect. Three separate dishes, sauces we flavorful, but light. All ingredients both vegetables and fish we super fresh. We had an early meal to make a show so the restaurant was only 3/4, that said, service was excellent. Highly recommend.
Everything was perfect. I was celebrating a successful meeting, on my own, but I felt entirely comfortable and taken care of. Every dish was delicious, my martini was top rate. Very impressed.
Fantastic meal for a pre theatre dinner! Lovely atmosphere and service.
This is one of my favorite pre-theater restaurants, which I first discovered when it was one of only a handful of post-theater eateries. It’s always been very good, but they’ve noticeably upped their game to EXCELLENT.
On this occasion I thoroughly enjoyed everything - the roasted beet salad was fresh, light, and flavorful, the house-made pappardelle with pork sugo was richly flavorful, and the dark chocolate budino was fantastic!
Dined at Scala's Bistro two nights (Thursday & Friday) in a row. Both were crowded, so I recommend reservations. The service is excellent and if no reservations, they will try to seat you ASAP with seating to wait. The Italian dishes are very good--I had linguine with clams--excellent. One person at my table said the pizza was not so good, but I didn't try it. Dessert also good. The only negative I have is the noise level. One must shout to be heard across the table. Otherwise, I love the place. Very convenient to hotels around Union Square Open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Will visit again when in the area.
Been going here for years and years. Never disappoints. Great food, atmosphere and service. Natalie the manager/hostess is outstanding. Our server was also terrific. Only problem was the 'little gem' salad was not up to par. Bitter and just not very good.
Service was great, food menu however was not impressive. Tried the goat cheese pizza with red peppers and some green leafy vegetable. The combination of those flavors were horrid and did not mix well what-so-ever. Question of the chef has tasted this particular pizza. The flavor had a sour flavor which we needed to take off the peppers and green leafy veggie.
The pasta selections were basic yet pricey. Hard when able to go to North Beach area and pay less for better options.
It was a perfect place to visit and eat when you are in the city. Nice servece, great food and was fast too!
It was a good dinner, we did not enjoy the burrata salad, but the main dish was good.
Bolognese and beet salad delish! Octopus appetizer was also fabulous!
The food itself was pretty tasty, but just offensively overpriced for what it is
Amazing pizza and salad! Service was perfect!
Feels very San Francisco. Centrally located. Friendly staff. Good food for the dollar. Decorations are really historical and interesting!
We paid 20 dollars for meat balls that were chewy. The ravioli was good but also very pricey. Wouldn't go back. Also, they never asked if I want Parmesan and it's an Italian restaurant!
Service was fast. Meal was delicious and of adequate quantity. Its was a bit loud inside though. Price was good value.
Service was excellent, throughout. Food was simply prepared, and was reasonably tasty. Several guests ordered the whole fish, and it was fresh. We could have done a better job selecting the wines.
I have never had a bad meal at this restaurant. Bruce is a fantastic waiter!!
Great service. The mussles are terrific. Wonderful desserts.
I will return again.
