Been eating here for years. The quality is always good. You need to book a table. Pino, the manager, is always willing to make off-menu Italian dishes. Try the butternut ravioli. Best in country. The Panacotta is very good and light for dessert. He gets very upset when you order Cappucino after dinner ! A great venue for small exclusive corporate functions. Pity it's in a casino complex, but ignore this and go.

This is by far one of the best places to eat (not only in Montecasino but) in Johannesburg. I have been going to La scala for the past 10 years...am actually jealous to share this little well kept secret in my city...praise has to be given where it is due though.

The food, the wine list, the ambience...excellent. The staff...very attentive, just awesome. Pino is a great host and for as long as la scala is around, we will always return.

We have been going to La Scala ever since it opened its doors, and every visit is as memorable as the last. From Private celebrations, to intimate dinners, as well as Corporate functions, one is treated as though you are part of the family. A menu which is mouth watering, and demonstrates the passion that Pinot has, never disappoints. Fresh ingredients, cooked with passion and served by friendly efficient staff, see us looking forward to visiting time and time again.The wine cellar is also a treat, a wide variety of wines, and the wine list certainly compliments the menu. Our last visit was an off the spur decision to see if we could get a table, bookings are generally essential, and we were very fortunate that a special table was squeezed in for us. The staff were superb, as we know most of them, it was as though they all came to look after us, to catch up and ensure we had a great evening with them. So if you are looking for a fantastic "authentic" Italian dinner, do not hesitate, get down to La Scala and enjoy the ambiance, as well as a fantastic menu. Hopefully you too will become regulars.

i was taken to La Scala for my birthday, I was treated like Gold, good ambience, and real feel of Italy. Unfortunately an inside restuarant, but never the less, a good taste of Italy, - lemoncello - really good, and food fresh and Tasty.

Good service, great food but a bit pricey...I expect their overheads are high though due to their being inside the Casino. Nice to go with a boyfriend/husband/partner - good ambience.
