Visited here as we were in the area to try the food. The service was good, friendly and attentive and the food was to a good standard as well. The only thing which I mark it down for is that it is a little bit pricey. Definitely worth a visit

We went here after searching on trip advisor and walking through Paignton for something better than the various pubs available, and were so glad we did. Food here was amazing, the owner was very helpful and the place had a genuine Italian feel to it. I was surprised we managed to walk in a get a table, but he place seemed quite quiet on the Thursday night we went. I think this restaurant would do much better if it was based in Torquay, unfortunately for the owner.
I would certainly recommend this to any one who wants a fancier meal in Paignton.

Having booked the restaurant due to its high Trip Advisor rating, I was disappointed by the fact that despite asking on the phone if the place was suitable for children, we discovered on arrival that they don't even have a childrens menu & didn't make pizzas either. We ordered them smaller portion adult meals. The food itself was fine, nothing special. The staff were pleasant, but overall not worth the ratings it seems to have gathered.

My wife and have visited La Scala several times in the past and were happy to record previously that Max and his restaurant had returned to its previous exceptional level of service and great food. Last night we returned again for our anniversary meal and were again blown away with Max's customer focus. We arrived to find our table festooned with 'Happy Anniversary' bits and pieces. Max himself welcomed us with all his usual friendliness and obvious desire to make our evening special. As the day had been very hot, he duly offered a (constant) supply of ice cubes to ensure our water was kept cool throughout our meal. Our food order was slightly off menu but as always nothing was too much trouble for Max and his staff. The quality of food was well up to the usual standard and a delight to consume! The whole evening was everything we had wished for and we will certainly be back.....it's clear to anyone how La Scala won the Trip Adviser Award of Excellence in 2014!
