We live locally but haven't been to this restaurant for 20 years. My husband and I decided on an impromptu meal out together and we're not disappointed. Fabulous service and a complimentary amaretto liqueur!

Got the address from my phone app around me. Phoned the restaurant to make arrangements but it was answer phone. I was just about to go somewhere else when I did get a call saying they could give us a table in 30 minutes, which we agreed. On arrival I was surprised to see how small it is and just one person serving the roughly 20 tables. The person turned out to be the owner, which explains why he doesn't answer the phone. The menu was interesting, and he explained in detail all the dishes, when we ordered he even agreed to prepare some spinach in a different manner. The food was delicious and generous portions as well. really great and enjoyable restaurant.

Beautiful food. Faultless service. The price reflects the standard of food which is wonderful. The one and only true Italian in Torbay.

Probably the best restaurant in Devon, and the fillet steak is world class. Max and his team give 100% service from the time you walk through the door. Nothing is too much trouble and the food is of the highest quality. Extensive wine menu and quality all round. Miss this and you miss out. I recently took a TV crew their, that were in their element. Well done Max keep up the good work

We were looking for somewhere maybe a little different,so joined by two friends we booked at La Scala. GOOD CHOICE. From the moment we walked in, and were warmly met by the patron we knew it was going to be a success,a varied menu. extensive wine list,really not sure what to order, a very patient waiter, the order went into the kitchen, and shortly brought to our table. Amazing food, tasty Yes hot YES. Will we be back? YES YES YES
