We were there on business and it was a larger group of 8. The service was attentive throughout the meal. The bruscetta was tasty start to the meal. Everyone enjoyed their entrees and some actually had enough to bring home for another meal. A few...of us had dessert, the tiramisu and the gelato.More

We had a lasagna and the chicken parmigiano wich was and excellent choice. We...finished the dinner with a delicious lemon sorbet and an chocolate vanilla ice cream. By the way, Miriam's warm service was excellent. Thank you so much . KRMore

My husband and I were flying out the next day and looking for a quality dinner as we had an early start. I saw the reviews on Tripadvisor and thought we would dine there. On a cold January night this was the perfect place to...go. It was warm, welcoming and quality food. Our host and her staff saw to our needs without being intrusive. It was a wonderful meal without being rushed, almost like visiting home on a cold winter’s night with a carefully prepared meal. Thank you. (I told you I’d leave a note on this site 👍)More

I have been to La Scala 5 or 6 times over the last several years with work colleagues. Thai time we took friends. We had a back room to ourselves since there was a holiday party in the main dining area. The food as always...was excellent and the service was very attentive, especially given that the main dining room was packed. Definitely worth it!More

Myself and a coworker we’re here for dinner we were the last ones in the restaurant at like 8 PM. The location is somewhat odd to us being from the United States but overall the environment is good. Nice and quaint little restaurant with good...food. I’ll be at the service was a little slow. There was a group of six next to us in a group of four behind us and they got the most attention from our waitress. Bread was good pasta was good thank youMore

We came here for a business lunch. All I can say is the service was great, timely and polite. The food was pretty good. We shared some bruschetta and shrimp in a spicy tomato sauce for starters. For the main, I had penne a l’arrabbiata...in a tomato sauce with sausage. It was good al dente and the sauce was the right level of hot spicy. A nice bottle of red wine made for a nice meal. I also had an espresso and it was very good. No pictures this time as I only remembered when I already my pasta dish.More

Food was flavorful and cooked perfectly. Must haves...the Bruschetta, steak and portobello mushroom pasta (can’t remember the name), and the home made tiramisu. If you’re in doubt ask the staff, they’re very helpful and friendly.

Each year we visit LaScala for dinner prior to starting our vacation and each year we have had great food. This recent visit left us very disappointed. The only decent dish was the risotto that our friend ordered. The veal dishes were a sparse serving...of veal (not like in the past visits) and we had more vegetables on the plate than veal. We were told by our server that the chef didn't have enough to serve all guests and therefore the small servings. Who tells paying customers something like that??? Our guests were not overly enthused with their pasta dishes either. The caesar salad to start was a pitiful bit of romaine and a couple of pieces of parmesan sprinkled on top. Never had a caesar salad like that before. Needless to say, dinner for 4, 3 salads, 4 mains no desert or coffee, 1/2 litre wine and 2 beers and tip came to $250. We have always enjoyed this restaurant but will have to find a new place to go prior to departing for our annual vacation.More

I have been visiting Lascala for 2 years now and i have to say thank you to my girls for a great service. The owner is often there to greet us at the door along with Johana who is usually my server, she is not...only very pleasant but very charming and funny. Food is outstanding and always fresh. Good job Lascala.More

We went to this place today because my guests wanted to eat Italian food and this place had pretty good reviews. The decor, ambiance, table settings, atmosphere is very good and very relaxing. The heating was turned way down. The problems start with the service,...our waitress was a younger lady with very fashionable glasses and an attitude which needs some serious adjustment. Our order was taken and for the three of us, we got a total of 4 slices of bread, which was cold. We asked for some butter which did not arrive until we asked for it again. Our food was very good. Again, the basics such as making sure we had enough water and that we had appropriate cutlery were completely ignored. She offered to bring us cheese and forgot. I was with some very important guests, otherwise I would have been very direct. The overall experience could have been outstanding and in the end, was merely pedestrian, I won't be back.More

We were near the Toronto International Airport and felt like Italian so La Scala seemed in order. I called to make a reservation but since it was a Monday they said it wouldn’t be needed. The menu is delightful with lots of Italian staples and...specials. I tried their pasta with shrimp and my friend had the mixed seafood. Both were delicious and the service was exceptional. Nice place and very good food. Lots of parking at no cost.More

I’m Italian, 3rd generation, and have eaten in Italy for months. La Scala is the one in Toronto. Why go downtown when Mississapua is easy to get to and park at. So beautiful inside yet unpretentious on attitude. Don’t go in a t-shirt but no...need for a jacket. Menu is full of classic Italian dishes and some twists and many come with fresh veggies instead of pasta-a welcome change. Bread was light and crusty-perfect. Veal, Eggplant(don’t be afraid to request it)and Salads are wonderful. Fair Pricing always helps the experience. A very private VIP room is available upon request. It was empty during my visit suggesting it may be had last minute. Go for the understated elagence interior and great food that overpowers the idea of eating in a business park strip center. Very attentive, well dressed staff top off the experience making this place such a find!More

I wasn’t really all that hungry, but after seeing such great reviews for this restaurant I decided to visit. I had the bruschetta, and the poached pear salad, and both were outstanding. I really enjoyed the ambience, and the food was spectacular. Now I am...looking forward to going back for dinner one of these nights. Friendly servers, and prompt service.More
