We went for a pre-Valentines dinner when staying in the city. We were forced into a very early reservation a few days in advance. The restaurant was completely empty. When another couple showed up about 45 minutes later, the host chose to sit them right next to us. It was unfortunate that with plenty of space they couldn’t give both of us a little more privacy.

Food was good but not excellent ( my caprese included a very mealy tomato) and I was surprised that no dinner specials were offered. We did indulge in a special cocktail and were delighted with it. Safe choice for eating in the city for price and options but was not an exceptional experience.

Food was excellent. There were times where the service of bringing dessert and food was slow mainly because it was their first day back and I think that this will improve.

Went with friends per the good reviews. Food was AMAZING!! Service was good too (never a dirty plate left on our table). Outside seating though with heaters wasn’t really separated by any barriers and it was breezy. Overall I would recommend this restaurant for Excellent Food.

We were treated extremely poorly at this restaurant . They were rude to us , waiter ignored us for the most part and they seemed to be in a rush to get us out as they didn’t even try and offer the dessert menu. Wondering if the staff hasn’t experienced a diverse clientele - we are brown and noticed that the host talked to us in a certain tone of voice that seemly didn’t seem like it made sense to address customers this way. Very put off . The best part of the experience was the free parking at the garage. The food itself was average. The mussels and pizza were good and the gnocchi was rubbery.

Went mid pandemic when you could only sit outside, it was chilly but food was awesome. Pricing is SUPER reasonable and I loved the pizza I got! Great for a bite with friends and I can't wait to go back to sit inside (:

I had been to LaScala’s prior to their rebrand and was not impressed but decided to try it again since they opened their doors as LaScala’s Fire and I’m so glad I did. The food was absolutely delicious and it pained me not to order everything on their menu. We will definitely be going back!

LaScala's is an extremely accommodating and amazing restaurant. From making the reservation to our actual dining experience, it was just an all-round pleasant time. I called to make a reservation last week and they had us booked within seconds. They also provide free parking accommodations in a next-door parking garage. Before arriving, I had to postpone our visit by 30 mins and they were able to do so without any problem at all. The venue itself is outstanding. It is dimly-lit and the noise level is not too high. The table was very clean and we were seated within a minute. The service was alarmingly quick. A waiter was with us immediately and our food was brought out within minutes of us ordering it. Despite the speed, the food was very nice and hot. Overall, we were in and out of the restaurant within an hour, which was perfect because we had to catch a play at the Walnut Street theater afterwards. Overall, LaScala's was a 10/10 experience and I would definitely go again and highly recommend it to others looking for some nice Italian cuisine.

This is my second time going to LaScala's. The home made bread is unbelievable, service is always excellent, the food never disappoints. This time I realized there was free parking in the parking garage over the restaurant. Win Win

Had a wonderful meal with a group of 8 friends on. Saturday night. Apps and meals were delish and we had a small private room (unexpected bonus) for our group. Recommend!

We were early birds, and asked to be placed at a quiet table. There was one so conversation was easy. They had a scallop/asparagus/risotto special that was really good. although not on the menu, gluten free pasta is available.

The apps are really delicious, especially the meatballs and baked eggplant. Sharing is a good idea as there are pizzas and pastas to enjoy.
