Building is beautifully done and provides an elegant, yet not stuffy atmosphere which is lovely. However, I found the menu to be a bit limited. Very heavy on pasta dishes. Taste was adequate, but far from special.

My husband and I dined her for a night out. It's a beautiful restaurant. Food was good, generous potions, lots of options and reasonably priced. Service was not as hospitable as anticipated but overall we had a fantastic time.

Sunday night dinner with Family was the first time we've tried La Scala and we're glad we did! The food was traditional Italian prepared with integrity and perfect service. Pricing was extremely reasonable for the quality and quantity of food and the excellent service. This place would compete and win in downtown Toronto.

Went for a business lunch with a colleague and the food was fantastic! We both ordered a pasta dish and were very pleased with our choices. I would recommend La Scala to anyone looking for a great mean in a nice Italian restaurant.

A surprise find but an outstanding restaurant. St. Catharines should appreciate an establishment like this where it's not just about food (excellent) or setting (excellent) but hospitality. I look forward to many more enjoyable evenings there!

We have been going to La Scala for years. First for the odd business lunch at the old location and now as our favorite restaurant in the Region. We have watched the transition between locations and to a new chef who we think is outstanding. There are fancier and much more expensive places, but Joe and his staff have balanced... More

My wife and I were going to go to the Vietnamese across the street but they are shut down so we came to La Scala instead. Wow are we glad we did. The food was great. We have the Antipasti, the Caprese, Bruschetta (Incredible!) and the Ravioli. Everything was great and finish off with an Almond Biscotti and a capicino.

Three of us girls decided to lunch out and La Scala was the suggested downtown spot. We arrived at 1:00 p.m. and were seated promptly in the out front covered area...weather was perfect for this. Our server (Mary) immediately took our drink order...all were having wine. We waited approximately 10 minutes for our drinks and the restaurant was not busy... More
