It was empty when we arrived but it filled out quickly, lucky we had a reservation. Great parking in the back. Lunch was excellent and so was the service. Nice patio in the front.

First time at their larger new location. Menu at first glance might seem a bit limited but their pasta & meat selections are more than adequate. The Veal Marsala is probably their signature dish and the linguini picatta is excellent. We had a pre-hockey 5:30 seating and our service was a bit slow and we could have used some waters... More

Building is beautifully done and provides an elegant, yet not stuffy atmosphere which is lovely. However, I found the menu to be a bit limited. Very heavy on pasta dishes. Taste was adequate, but far from special.

Sunday night dinner with Family was the first time we've tried La Scala and we're glad we did! The food was traditional Italian prepared with integrity and perfect service. Pricing was extremely reasonable for the quality and quantity of food and the excellent service. This place would compete and win in downtown Toronto.

Went for a business lunch with a colleague and the food was fantastic! We both ordered a pasta dish and were very pleased with our choices. I would recommend La Scala to anyone looking for a great mean in a nice Italian restaurant.

A surprise find but an outstanding restaurant. St. Catharines should appreciate an establishment like this where it's not just about food (excellent) or setting (excellent) but hospitality. I look forward to many more enjoyable evenings there!
