I Visit Little Italy Very Frequently

At this southern Italian restaurant, you are always treated as family. My favorite dish is the Chicken Raffaello (chicken breast w/ artichoke hearts, prosciutto, mozzarella, mushrooms and Marsala) I usually go for an imaginative special though, always thoughtful and full of flavor.



Great Service!!!

This is a restaurant was exceptional, has great service, and great atmosphere. I would recommend everyone to bring their families, it is a semi-formal environment. The staff was very welcoming and are concerned with everything from the food to having your coat serviced at the front door. This is an authentic italian restaurant from the food to the wine. The wait staff knows excatly what kind of wine to drink that complainments the food. Everyone is friendly and it leaves you with wanting more. My family and I come here at least once a month.



There are other restaurants in Little Italy????

From the title of my review, I'm sure you can guess what I'm going to say. After all the changes that Little Italy has made over the years, La Scala has stayed the same. I have been coming back year after year, just to be greeted by Chef Nino and all of his wonderful staff. I am never disappointed and I always enjoy a wonderful meal From their famous GRILLED CAESAR SALAD, that no one can duplicate to their daily specials, everyone will get a taste of something new and exciting that will be sure to warm you to the core. I always make sure to save room for one of mamas homemade cannolis and cream. Most nights, there are an array of flavors to choose from. From the service to their one of a kind famous Espresso Martini (with a secret receipe of course) everything is a perfect 10.

Worst resturant experience EVER

I ordered chicken marsala and got chicken mc'nuggets in marsala sauce. To top it off the wait staff was the most arrogant group of people i have ever met. I was slightly under-dressed and got nasty looks from the wait staff and other arrogant customers. The table next to me started making nasty comments to my girlfriend and I because of our attire, which was casual since we came straight from work. When I brought this to the attention of the manager, he did not seem to care at all. This blew my mind because I spent over $200 (2 bottles of wine) and somehow this was not enough to get any sort of respect from the manager. These people have no business being this arrogant because their restaurant is VERY AVERAGE, I am from New York, and any restaurant in the real Little Italy puts this place to shame.

The food was ok, but nothing special - the veal was tough, maybe overcooked. The service was definitely lacking, the waiter took our order and brought us our check. The wine was good, bartender was good and the bus boy (who perpetually brought us water and was the only staff to wish us a pleasant evening) was good. Tiramasu was lady fingers, whipped cream and cocoa powder (Piedigrotta has them beat hands down) - maybe try the canoli? In our opinion this place is overrated - maybe they're just coasting on their own press...

They make any visit a special occaision.

This is our any occaision, visiting friends or family, New Year's Eve place to go for good food and wine. We are treated like family and no request is too big or too small. Although you can run up a big tab you can also enjoy the dining experience for not too much money. Definitely save space for dessert - the cannoli's are fabulous! Worth a visit, if only to sample the wines in their cellar.

One of our favorites!

This is one of my fiancé' and my favorite places in the city - we bring friends and family to La Scala every chance we get. While it can get pricey, it doesn't have to (their pasta dishes are affordable & delicious). If you want a treat though, get the grilled Caesar salad, followed by the Veal Baltimore - sautéed Veal Scaloppini with lump crab in Old Bay & white wine (not always on the menu, but I've never been turned down when I asked for it special - indicative of the classy yet family-run service) with a nice red from their excellent wine list, then Tiramisu or Cannoli with a coffee & Amaretto.

Attention to detail makes the difference here!

One of the best meals we have had in a long time! Service was great (Kudos to Carlos our server!) Atmosphere was cozy and inviting! Wine was great and complimented the meal well! Best cannoli's in town so don't forget to order one with your cappuccino for dessert! We highly recommend this resaurant for a wonderful dining experience!

Awesome little place

I like this place..... My friends had a small meet there for dinner last week, but after I read the last review I got a little worried. We got there early and had drinks at the bar, the bar tender was very cool and had allot of great suggestions, I recommend the chicken breast with crabmeat. The food was awesome and waiter was the best. We all had a great time and Im definitely coming back.....
