“Murphy Family”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 April 2014 via mobile

Looked this place up based on Trip Advisor reviews. Viewed from outside on cold wet April afternoon I was inclined not to bother. Thankfully I returned later to "have a look inside", we stayed and had the best Italian food I have experienced anywhere in UK. All three dishes were superb and faultless as was the service and all round experience. If you like good quality food @very good prices this is for you.

“Birthday”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 March 2014

We went to La Scala in a party of 13 (was lucky for us) to cerebrate 4 birthdays. The table was decorated for us and looked lovely; the food I thought was outstanding. The service was second to none and the staff did everything they could to make sure we had a good time and we did. To cap it all they brought out a HUGE Birthday cake at the end of the meal. Price wise it seems on par with other Italian restaurants we have been too. It was worth every penny we paid and we are already talking about going back.

“Hidden but wonderful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 March 2014

This restaurant is tucked away off the main road but should not be missed! We found it by chance and glad we did the food was outstanding. Staff were warm and friendly. Traditional home cooked, fresh Italian food.
