Both times we have eaten here the food has been fantastic. La Scala might on balance be the best Italian food in town, certainly top three, and the chef takes real pride. The wine list is pretty extensive although on the pricey side. The only real downside to La Scala is that it is a bit out of the city... More

Highly recommended and whilst it's expensive for Laos - those on a western budget will... More

I met a business colleague here over lunch last month. We went upstairs where they have a buffet lunch during the week. The selection was OK but not huge. They kept topping the food up, nothing ran out. The hot dishes under the Warner's didn't stay very hot. It was OK but for the price paid I would expect a... More

La Scala is a nice setting and well decorated but unfortunately this could not make up for the food quality which was disappointing. We tried various dishes but there were either too salty or rather bland. Relatively expensive and not worth it in our opinion, nicer & cheaper places in town.
