We went there for a birthday meal and it did not disappoint ! We were 4 persons each with a different order and everyone was thrilled with their meals. My taglioni Capesante was delicious, scallops & king prawns in a tasty sauce. Service was good, attentive but not over the top.

We book into La Scala every December for our family get together. We always find great service & even better food. We are a party of 18 but don't have to pre order which is nice to choose on the day. It's a lovely place.

Been here a few times with friends from work. The food is always really delicious, good quality and very reasonably priced. The staff are friendly and helpful. The restaurant is very accommodating for guests providing gluten free alternatives and sometimes even allowing off menu choices. Definitely would recommend

Decent Italian food. Typical menu with all the classics. Pizzas are really nice with a good thin Italian base. None of that doughy American stuff. Atmosphere was good although it wasn't that busy for a Saturday night. Easy to get to from the motorway for meeting friends.

First of all let me be clear, I don’t really like Italian food but I visited La Scala a few weeks ago in a party of 16 people. Whatever I have at an Italian restaurant I’m always disappointed so I plumped for something international…..peppered fillet steak, and it was really good. The steak was tender and the brandy and peppercorn... More

The food was lovely and tasty with quick service. The staff are very welcoming and can't do enough for you, even though there was alot in. They brought out my cake and Sang Happy Birthday, then cut it up for us to have a piece after the meal. They are not overpriced either. Would recommend this place and Thankyou for... More
