Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We have been to La scala twice in recent weeks and have enjoyed it very much. The service is very good and friendly and helpful. The food is excellent. The house wine is a bit disappointing and we don't always want to order a bottle....We will certainly carry on visiting, and enjoying La ScalaMore

If I could give 0 stars I would. I’m not one for posting a bad review but I feel the need to. Absolutely appalled at the service we’ve just received. Went for a lovely Mother’s Day meal. I ordered the cannelloni. A dish I have...often at many other Italian restaurants. So I had one mouthful and couldn’t eat it, it had a strange curry like taste. Not your usual tomato and cheese spinach vibes. The owner came over and was disgustingly rude, telling me lots of people have it and what’s wrong with me ? Excuse me ? Are you for real ? You don’t speak to customers in that manner. He then stormed off when i said it was a dish I eat regularly. How he gets any business with an attitude like that. I’ve never felt so uncomfortable in my life! Safe to say I won’t ever eat there again. Let me add I was very polite and was still willing to pay for the food I didn’t eat. I do however have to praise the lovely waitress that made me feel slightly better, about the manor I was spoken to by the man. She apologised on his behalf and took the dish off the bill. Not impressed, so to anyone reading, I’d avoid if I was you.More

I definitely recommend La Scala and we will be back. Thanks guysMore

We visited with family and have been many times before April of this year. However, the man who seemed to be in charge and was order taker was the most arrogant and abrupt person I have met in a long time. It was like he...was doing you a favour by you eating at the restaurant. The attitude to the waitresses, especially the younger ones was disgusting. He definitely needs taking down a peg or two. Putting him aside which should be outside, the food was excellent and all the other staff very accommodating. Please don’t be put off by Mr Rude, the food is worth going for.More

Local but our first visit, passing so thought we would give it a try. Exterior didn’t give us high expectations, neither did the interior (dated), however once handed the menu (prices in line if not ever so slightly higher then local area..check yourselves) it was...a lot more appealing and the food delivered was very good and really enjoyed by all. Taking this into consideration, environment versus food quality and quantity I would have give this place maybe a 3/4, However coupled with the fact that the staff are extremely unwelcoming and at times down right rude, we shall not be returning. My son has a learning difficulty and the way the staff snatched things from him and spoke to him are unacceptable. I’ve waited tables myself many moons ago, if I would approach customers in this way, I would be sacked. Regardless if you have a good chef, waiting/service staff “know where your bread is buttered” or lose customers.More
