Since 1995, Scala's Bistro has garnered a reputation for classic, elegant dining. Warm, earth tones, original murals, beaded bistro lamps, and rich, mahogany booths evoke a dramatic Old World café. Fresh, innovative, Italian and Mediterranean-inspired dishes enhance the Scala’s menu while continuing to pay homage to the old Scala’s favorites.

Everything was great except it was sooo cold in the restaurant. We literally had to keep our coats on. Our waiter was terrific and very helpful and the food was delicious!

Did was ok. Whole fish over cooked. Mushrooms very good as was the salad. But at best simple food.

Scala's has come down a few notches as it was always our go-to spot when dining near Union Square. I feel that some of the "old world" charm has gone since the remodel and the food was good but not great.

Ordered the bacon and egg sandwich. The roll was so stale, it was rock hard. Practically not aioli to soften it. I couldn't eat it. The bacon was tough, the egg overcooked, the potatoes soggy. I've had better breakfast sandwiches at McDonalds and Starbucks. Do not recommend for brunch.

The Hostess welcomed us and we were seated immediately. Our server was able to explain a few dishes and accommodate a request to add pasta to the appetizer meatballs.
We enjoyed the Brussels sprouts, spinach budino - very rich, 3 giant scallops spiedini, and the meatballs (3 huge ones) with a side of pasta. The staff acknowledged our anniversary dinner date and gave us a complimentary dessert. Very professional and kind service.

This little Union Square gem is just that! We were treated like royalty and received the perfect amount of attention from the wait staff and kitchen. The food was delicious and just enough. We loved every bite of our salmon, pasta, and appetizer. The wine was lovely and the waiter as knowledgeable as a sommelier.

What a fantastic experience!

Many thanks to all!!
