Hosted a team dinner with our client. Like the one other time I came here it underperformed.

The J. Lohr Seven Oaks Cabernet Sauvignon was a slight value ($58 a bottle vs. $24 a bottle retail). Appetizers included antipasto Italiano ($14), calamari ($15), shrimp diavola ($14) and bruschetta ($9). They were all average at best with the favorite being the antipasto and least the calamari. For an entrée I had the pollo parmigiana which was again middle of the road in quality. Other dishes were spaghetti di mare ($25), 10 oz. NY steak ($33), agnolotti rose ($20), salmon alla griglia ($24) and fettuccini bellisimo ($23). Portions were smaller than expected and nothing stood out as great or not very tasty.

At the end of the day having linen tablecloths and well-dressed staff does not mean the food is great, the service crisp or the value high.

La Scala is nicely decorated, and convenient for dining near the airport. The waiter had no personality or warmth. Pasta, fish special and veal we just okay.

La Scala came highly recommended by friends for their food and service. We decided to try it out on a couple of occasions to experience it firsthand since we were looking for a place to celebrate our son's Confirmation. Consistent on both fronts so we booked the event. Mariam was helpful in offering our menu options as well as decor to make the day special for us. On the day of the event, the tables looked beautiful, the food was delicious but above all, the service was exceptional! Mariam and her team made our guests feel comfortable and went above and beyond ensuring that the food and drinks were served timely. We are happy to recommend La Scala and would return again!

Bruschetta was excellent - besides that, my pasta and tiramisu were nothing that special

It's in a convenient business park - so if you have meetings there, it's worth it to go

This was my first time at the restaurant. I was here for a business lunch and had no specific expectations. It is more on the upscale side which was evidenced by the linen table cloths, high prices and smaller size portions.

Based on what we ate the illusion of the ambiance did not transcend into a great meal. Overall there was minimal value derived from my experience. The food did not match the prices for either taste or dimension of the dish.
