The front desk was very friendly but not sure you need 4 people there
We were waiting for bus staff to clean off table and instead of one of the four people standing at the front desk clearing it...which meant wiping it with a rag we waiting ten minutes to be seated.
People in this climate should be more willing to do whatever it takes to get you seated and we could have spent that time having a cocktail while waiting for the rest of our party. .
The place was not busy
Staff a little scattered but very helpful when you finally got there attention
I ordered a drink and it was completely forgotten until the end of the evening and didn't really need it after my dinner was gone.
Food very good but one of our parties dinners was completely forgotten
I would go again and thought the place was nice but just hope staff is a bit more on point this visit.
Food comes out when ready by dish not table. Leaving some people to eat their food at a different time. Service was good and setting is nice.
Service was terrible. Food was good but entrees do not come out at once which is very inconvenient for a party with some people getting the entrees and others waiting
There were four of us that went for dinner. The food was delicious. We received our entrees at different times and our drinks took a long time to get served. It was not even busy.
I LOVE this place. The food was AMAZING. PERFECT. OK, understand the food may not come out all at once. Been to Italy? DUH share as it comes out. This place is the spot for fun group eating. BTW, saw lots of kids so their menu and experience must b e good.
I really like the vibe of the restaurant. Our server was decent. The food was OK. I did not love the Napoli pizza. I felt like it was lacking in flavor.
While this was Carlos' second shift, he was wonderful. The food was good as always. I was a bit disappointed to see that the Mediterranean Salad was discontinued. It was one of my favorites. I opted for the Caesar Salad with crabmeat instead. The LaScala fries are amazing. While my grandson asked for the cheese sauce on the side, the fries came covered in the sauce. We asked him to give it a try-and he enjoyed them-a lot! The sundaes for dessert were the perfect touch.
Food was delicious. Beautiful atmosphere. Service was awesome!
Waiter was excellent food just ok.
2nd visit, tried the pizza this time. Cheesesteak & mushroom truffle pizzas were soggy. They were good, would have been great had they been crispier. Our server Bri was lovely and efficient. Loved the lavender martini!
Great customer service, delicious food, and amazing ambiance! Definitely will return again!!
It was okay. I am not fond of the loud thumping music (if you can call it music). The veal San remo was a little underwhelming. I was expecting the veal to be more seasoned. Out waitstaff was very friendly and attentive.
Excellent experience. Server was friendly and attentive. Atmosphere was upbeat. Food was well presented and delicious.
I ordered "Alicia's Meatball and Italian Salad," and also the Triple Chocolate Cake, both were truly delicious.
Our server was friendly and attentive.
The atmosphere could be described as industrial and this would be the only drawback, as it did not have a warm, welcoming feel to it.
Seemed somewhat disorganized and understaffed.
Main entree was pretty bland.
Always an incredible meal. Awesome bread and wonderful service!
waitor got my order wrong asked for Veal marsala and got Chicken Marsala was out with acquaintances and didnt want to make dinner awkward so I didn’t say anything. Chicken Marsala was goof however I would have enjoyed the veal marsala more
Food was amazing! Great service
The meal was delicious! The noise level is rather loud, are there any type of remediation that could help buffer the noise?
Otherwise a super restaurant!
The food was not at all impressive. Actually had to send back my pizza because it was so soggy--it literally left a large puddle of tomato water on the table when our waitress took it away. But Briana was an absolutely wonderful waitress! It is a very pretty restaurant and the drinks were good. But the food was not good enough to warrant going back
our waiter was passionate about the food he served. A very pleasant dinner.
Always fantastic food!! Beautiful modern setting. Service is friendly and quick. Highly recommended if you love great Italian food!!
There were 3 of us and we got appetizers, entrees and dessert and everything was delicious. Portions were generous, fresh and tasty. I will definitely go back
Servers were pleasant and helpful but could have been a little more visible, took 5 min to find her with a question we had and then to be able to order.
BTW, the leftovers were still yummy for dinner the next night.
Noise level will hinder us from eating inside
Service was great (Olivia). Food is always good. Prices are too high. Weeknight dinner for two should not be $120.00. We didn’t order a huge amount of food and stuck to four $6.00 beers.
The noise level is a problem when busy. We found ourselves shouting to hear each other across the inside table.
Overall a positive experience and I hope this place survives in this space - it has turned over several times over the years.
The staff and service was great. Bridget was super nice and very accommodating. Will be visiting again.
Great food, ambiance and service. Enjoyed dinner!
Great meal and awesome atmosphere two days in a row!
Our server, Bridgette was affable and knowledgable which set the tone for a great experience. The artichoke starter and portobello topped with crabmeat were delicious. Reasonable prices, upbeat lively vibe. Can't wait to go back.
Did not like that the Salas appetizer was brought out with the main course.
I’ve been wanting to try LaScala for awhile. There’s ample parking in the lot. I was able to make reservations thru Open Table. When we arrived at 6:30pm, the two people at the podium were on the phones but greeted us quickly and friendly. We asked about eating outside and they said absolutely and showed us to a table. The interior of the restaurant looked great and I look forward to dining there in the future. Seemed like there were areas with many TVs. Our server was Scottie (female). She was helpful and attentive. They do not have Coke products. She made recommendations from the menu. We started with the whipped ricotta board and stuffed long hots. Totally delicious! I could’ve eaten the ricotta all night and been happy. We did ask for extra bread which is sort of like pizza crust more than bread. Scottie let us know it’s $4 charge for extra bread. Two of us had gnocchi, one lasagna and one veggie pizza. The meals were all delicious. The food came faster than expected but I’d much rather that than waiting forever. For dessert I had the profiteroles which were really creamy and sweet. We’ll definitely be returning for future meals.
Love our meals. Big portions and lots of starts to pick from. We usually like the calamari, however it was a little chewy and not crispy that day. Love the ricotta board but def order the extra bread.
Good food! Lots of choices!
Food and drinks were great. Staff was friendly and helpful. Will go back.
flavors were bland. Not Gluten-Free friendly AT ALL
Excellent food, preparation and service
Everything was amazing
Nice easy and comfortable atmosphere. Food was good and service was good.
Good food, good atmosphere and great service.
