so disappointed

Although the food was good, the service was horrible. The waiter was grumpy and impatient. We never received refills on our drinks. We asked for more bread and they didn't bring butter along. We asked for a starter to be an entree and he said he couldn't do that. And the only time he actually hung around was when he was waiting for us to pay the check. I think I'll pass there are too many good restaurants aroun... view more

WORST SERVICE EVVERRRRR!

I've tried to eat here about five times in the 3 years I've worked a block away. I absolutely hate going to LaScala's. Everytime I hope that just maybe, it isnt as bad as I thought, but no everytime I go its worse that the time before. It's not just me, I work with 40 other people that can say LaScala's service SUCKS! PERIOD. In fact I might have them all write a review so people can read what the service is real... view more

It used to be good

I used to like this place a lot, but the service just isn't what it used to be. I always ordered the same appetizer, on my last visit I did the same and it was served to me differently than usual. The bartender who I had never seen before insisted to me that is how they always had been served. They took them off the bill, but I did not like his insistence at trying to prove me wrong. Food was always just average,... view more

Expected OK, Got Great!

We don't get out of the suburbs too often but were going to the Walnut St. Theater and needed someplace close. Read some old reviews and tried to move to another restaurant but they were closed due to a private party. Thank God! The food at La Scala was excellent. There were 4 of us and we had the mussels (excellent red wine sauce), the bruchetta (creative and tasty) and the chopped salad that was HUGE and delicio... view more

Great food, not so great service!

Nice decor, mostly good food, but they take the plates away too soon! One person in our party was still chewing and his food was whisked away! My hubby went to the bar for a drink and his desert was take away uneaten. The calamari was way stinky, I couldn't get past the smell to eat it. Everything else was good, especially the chicken cannelloni and chocolate layer cake..The wait staff mixed up all the checks and ... view more

ABSOLUTELY HORRIBLE!

I can not believe how terrible the service is. My wife has at least one source which clearly indicates that management of the restaurant is writing posative reviews for themselves. ABSOLUTELY UNCONSCIONABLE!\r \r Every time we have been to this place the service has been really disrespectful, and we have experienced racial discrimination by at least two waitors. We have never seen anything like this before and w... view more

Awfully RUDE service, BAD food! read the review...

Set there with a colleague, I ordered a sald a pasta. unfortunately one of the tomatos served as part of the salad was... fusty. Nevermind that, i called the waitress to tell her that i took a bite off a fusty tomato so without me asking for anything other than taking the salad away she called her boss (the owner i assume). The woman comes to the table and said rudely ""I heard you wanted to talk to me"" so i said ""... view more
