La Scala offers a plethora of choices when it comes to Italian cuisine. It's one of the pluses of this place. Prices are reasonable, service is good, and the venue itself is attractive. The food, I must say, is pretty average. Nothing really stands out, with some hits and some misses.

We enjoyed a wonderful dinner here while in town. The atmosphere is lovely. The waitstaff is perfect - attentive and extremely kind. The food is to die for and the portions are huge! Plan on taking some home and save room for desert!!! Will come again the next time I am in town!!

Honestly from when they only had Regular or Sicilian slices to today with so many, it's always great. When they were closed for renovation, I shot across the street to Marios Pizza. So mediocre compared to La Scala. Why would anyone ever go to Mario's? Maybe if you had no taste buds? Seriously. How good is La Scala? It was... More

Best pizza in town. NY style. The table service is adequate...and the other food is above average. BUT the PIZZA the best. They do a huge take out business, as well they deserve to. I have been there for lunch and dinner several times. Consistently good.

We stopped here on our way home from visiting Stony Brook Univ. - no recommendation just happened by. Glad we did. Take out pizza is on the front, sit down meals in the back. It's all Italian fare prepared with care and most importantly tastes great. The service was top notch too. I definitely recommend it!

This is the place you should go for the best Italian in the Commack area. Delicious food, huge portions and reasonable pricing. From the garlic rolls and fresh brushetta delivered to the table complimentary to the amazing sangria (the red especially delicious). The best chicken parm ever! Try the homemade fettuccine alfredo!

We stop in based on a recommendation from the front desk of the hotel we were staying at, and we're glad we did. The service was very quick, the pour for their wine is very generous, and the food was very good.

Six of us came here on a Tuesday evening for dinner. My dish was billed as a filet mignon special. The meat was NOT a filet mignon (someone lied to the cook who came out to lie to me). It was rubbery, chewy, and tough. We ordered ice cream for dessert but never got it. My coffee cup came half... More
