We took our son and friends for dinner. Service was fast, we were able to talk and listen to each other. It was delightful and fun.

Every visit to Lafayette Indiana must include a visit to La Scala - absolutely delicious - fresh ingredients, innovative dishes, great cocktail menu, private room and outdoor dining available - truly every single dish I have ever eaten there ( and I have been there over a dozen times over the last six years) is fabulous - not inexpensive but...

Look, I live in a large urban area compared to Lafayette (Cincinnati, Ohio). I've eaten some incredible authentic Italian (No...not Olive Garden). This is some of the best Italian I have ever put in my mouth. The value was great, the atmosphere we fun. We were surprised to find such high-end quality Italian in a mid-sized city. We come to...

Got an opportunity to stop in and have an appetizer and cocktail. What a great place. I will definitely have to come here for a full blown dinner experience. Great Staff!

Hosted 24 people for a "Farewell" lunch. Ordered off the menu for 24 people. Food and drinks were delivered quickly - difficult with no limits on the menu choices. The kitchen delivered as well as our server. The guest of honor thoroughly enjoyed his lunch. Food was over the top and the drinks flowed freely. Thanks for a memorable farewell.

They have pretty good Italian food with a nice selection of wines and Italian liquor. The veal piccata was delicious and gluten free options as well. Great service.

Food was average. There is much better Italian fare available for the price. But this is Greater Lafayette, so maybe there are not many options. Service was mediocre to the best. The servers and the manager clearly need training on greeting customers, taking care of them and generally making the guests feel much more welcome and cared for. That said,... More

Atmosphere is one of the better venues in Lafayette, but the prices are high for what you get. Meal was above average, but not excellent. Quite a bit of the staff seem to mingle more among themselves verses the customers. Still a good place to visit & hopefully they'll improve over time.

Upon our arrival to Lafayette my parents and I were very hungry. Just before leaving the hotel for dinner my mom found La Scala in the hotel booklet. We arrived around 7, didn't call ahead and they didn't have a table available until about 8:30. We were to hungry to wait so we walked down the street and thought maybe... More
