La Scala Ratings and Reviews
Chef Nino and the team at La Scala ate exemplary. Nino's passion for his food really shines through. The entire restaurant experience is influenced by his love for the food, his customers and the community. Really an excellent dining experience. I can never come to Baltimore again without having a meal at La Scala! Delicious.
LaScala is my favorite restaurant in Little Italy. It never disappoints! I always take family here when they visit from out of town. The food is authentic Italian and they import many of their ingredients from Italy. The food is always perfect - so full of old World flavor and so comforting. The service is always impeccable as well.
Thoroughly impressed! My wife and I enjoyed everything that was brought to our table...everything from the wine to the appetizer, to the out-of-this-world Veal Marsala was amazing! I can't imagine Italian cuisine tasting any better if I were actually in Italy. We will definitely make this a regular date night location!
Heavenly is the word that came up repeatedly
Antonio was absolutely fabulous; knowledgeable, personable &
skilled at all aspects of great dining! Food-heavenly! Branzino excellent! But the finest dish was the calamari we ordered sautéed. This should be on the menu all the time! We order it every where we can for years & years . Hands down-best!!!! Smokey not saucy not rubbery-dare I say it...HEAVENLY!!!!!
We come here whenever in town & it has been a few years. Never disappointed...ever. It is a staple for us.
Twin sister birthday celebration with family was wonderful here. Our server Jose was professional, friendly and knowledgeable of the cuisine and specials of the day. Everyone was happy with their selection. From beginning of the evening with birthday cards at our table to the complimentary tiramisu cake slice and candles at the end, all were delighted.
I went to La Scala as recommended by an Italian friend. There are no good options in DC. The ambience as ok, but the food was really good. The filet mignon with shrimp with veal scallopine was the best of the three entrees we ordered. The Lobster fra Diavolo was also excellent, but it was oddly light on sauce. To me, pasta is a sauce delivery device. Give it to me! The sauce we got was spicy and delicious. The last dish was the branzino. Very good! Wish we had some capers, but the skin was crispy and delicious. We'd come back. When a customer is nit-picky like I am now, he just wants to complain, but can't find much to complain about. Eat here for sure!
Wait staff was excellent as was cuisine. We arrived early intending to wait at the bar but instead we were told our table was ready. Seated right away. Meal was delicious. Comfortable unrushed service. Jose did an excellent job filleting our fish table side.
La Scala is one of the best restaurants I've ever had the pleasure of dining at. Everything, from the warm welcome to the attentive service and the exceptional food, was perfect. Our server went out of his way to find us a wonderful bottle of Rosé, which complemented our meal very well. We were celebrating my birthday and I was brought a generous slice of their heavenly tiramisu, complete with a candle. I'm already planning my next visit!!
Really delicious! I had the chicken parm and it was great. The portion sizes are pretty big. At first they said we couldn't sit outside, but that was mainly what we wanted so when we said we'd just go to another place they opened up the deck just for us! The deck was really cute with lots of flowers. Lots of specials every night as well. I recommend.
What a great find in Little Italy for our Wedding Anniversary dinner this year! The food was fabulous and the service was superb! Thank you Chef Nino (who personally greeted us and provided a lovely personal note! - see photo) and Sammy who took great care of us, including a complimentary special dessert. We will be back soon! :)
