    First time we did not know what we were walking into, decided we have to come back proper way. This was our second time, we properly did it and we still haven’t had the opportunity to take it all in… this is where Savannah people, not tourist end up.

    After recently coming back from a trip to Italy. This was an anniversary dinner and it was well worth it . If I could find anything wrong it would be sitting directly next to a 10 top. Other than that it was on point.

    We had another lovely dinner at La Scala. Our waitress, Taylor, was attentive and professional. The food was exceptional. Was very impressed with the General Manager, Elena, who went out of her way to seat several guests, who didn’t have reservations, at the bar. An excellent experience.

    We've frequented this restaurant a number of times. We brought out of town guests with us on this recent visit. The bar area is a great pre-dinner stop. I recommend you arrive a few minutes before your reservation time to enjoy a relaxing drink before going to your table. The server was great. He asked our names and referred to us by name when addressing each of us. He made recommendations for wine, which was a great selection. All staff we encountered were pleasant and welcoming. We will return again soon. A great visit!

    The food and the ambiance were perfect for a romantic dinner. Set in an old 19th century home with original decor. They also have spaces for somewhat larger groups that might be a bit more boisterous too.

    Average experience on Valentine's Day evening. Arrived 15min early to 9:30pm reservation and was sat within 20min which is good on Valentine's Day. Service was good but establishment was busy thus, service wasn't the fastest. Ordered brie beignet & pork chop from Valentine's Day prefix menu. After about a little over an hour (11pm), entree arrived and eh... I've had better and expected more from La Scala. - Beignet was great! Kudos to server for suggesting ordering extra raspberry sauce on the side. - Pork seemingly sat for a while and was very noticably welted & tough on one side. - Risotto was tasty but was lukewarm. - Haricot verts (green beans) were great! Nice char, seasoned and cooked to perfection. - Chocolate mousse was delicious as well! About 20min into our meal, the kitchen began closing and played loud music which pretty much ended the atmosphere. Our server was giving last minute guests a tour of the La Scala building so we made the most out of the situation and jammed out to the kitchen's music. Many F&B staff assisted and conversed with us while we waited for our server and our bill. Long story short: Long wait due to busy night. Food was eh. Don't go on Holidays or an hour before closing.

    We eat at La Scala every so often. We came here last Valentines and had a great meal, but, honestly, this meal was better. Our server was excellent. Very pleasant and attentive without being obtrusive. We had the steak Oscar and it was delicious. The risotto with it was lovely and my only small gripe was the asparagus was a bit undercooked. We will be back.

    I told the restaurant in my reservation and when they called to confirm that we had one vegetarian and one seriously allergic to mushrooms. We were never told the menu was fixed for Valentine’s Day and did not accommodate either of these items. I also told the waiter and the manager at our table. First the waiter told my brother (who is actually vegan but will eat vegetarian at a restaurant) that he could choose the Caesar salad because he can eat cheese since “vegan and vegetarian are different, sir…”. So no - anchovies are still out for both. Then the manager told my brother the chef would make him a fantastic pasta dish as “chefs choice” for vegetarian. He got a plate of green beans and asparagus coated in butter. That was it. The dish I selected came with mushroom risotto so the manager said I could not have either of their risotto options due to cross contamination. I was to get vegetables instead. My plate came with red pepper risotto. I questioned it and was told the server had “talked to everybody and you’re good…”. Sure enough, the risotto had mushrooms in it and I couldn’t eat anything on my plate. What a disaster. I can’t imagine I’ll ever go back. To be fair, our entire inedible meal was comped.

    Friendly staff. Valentine’s menu was minimal, wish there were more selections. My husband had the seafood lasagna and really enjoyed it: I had the steak oscar, everything was good but the steak. I ordered medium it came out VERY rare. Had a few bites from the outer that was cooked. The waiter came back and my husband told him my steak was too rare, so he took it back to the kitchen, a few minutes later he brought my plate back and it was still VERY rare. I didn’t finish it, and the waiter never followed back up to see if it was any better. All in all, it was a decent experience, the atmosphere was nice. I don’t see us going back though. A $65 steak should be cooked as ordered the first time, and if not the first then definitely the second…

    Had an outstanding dinner and service with my family on Valentine's Day. While I was honestly looking forward to the full menu as I had my heart set on certain dishes, I was perfectly okay with the selections on the condensed menu for that evening. Service was outstanding and very memorable for the occasion.

    Overall an ok experience. Heard a lot of hype around the place when it first opened. Food was “meh” at best. Mussels and the wine were the highlights. Service was good and atmosphere was another highlight with the restaurant being based in an old historic Savannah home.

    We had the absolute best time here, and it was the perfect date night spot! Immediately when you walk in, you're greeted by the sweetest staff and a beautiful atmosphere. Everything from the wine, to our dessert was amazing. There's a guy named Phil that sings and even asks for recommendations on songs based on your occasion for the night. Highly recommend LaScala Ristorante!

    We had some issues with service. We waited 30 minutes to order drinks or get water. We sat over 30 minutes after eating with empty glasses and finally asked for our check. The check came out and I gave our server my card and when she returned to total was higher. I've never seen that before were a check goes up after my card was run. When I asked she indicated that she mistakenly added another tables drink to it. Seems odd though that more would be added after the customer sees the bill. She removed it, but it didn't sit right with me.

    Alberto our server made the entire experience! He was very knowledgeable about the menu as one person in the party was gluten free. Alberto was constantly at our table checking in without being overkill. All the food was incredible. We were a party of 6 and almost everyone had something different with no complaints. Price point was extremely fair for the quality of the food, portions, atmosphere, service, and drinks.

    We are local and the last time we dined at La Scala was when it opened several years ago. Wow! I didn't know what we were missing but we had an outstanding experience- from food, to service to wine. Everything was perfect. We enjoyed a seafood pasta ravioli (special) and the sausage paperdelle. Wine was amazing and so was the lavender creme brulee. We will definitely be back again soon! Well done La Scala!

    We traveled to Savannah for New Year’s Eve and made a 3 day trip there. We had no idea what LaScala would be like. We came across it when looking for a place to have our new year’s dinner with another couple. It was wonderful and the four of us would highly recommend it.

    Over an hour wait from when we placed our order to getting our entrees. Very small portion - I had to eat again when I got home. I had the clams and linguini - clams were not washed well and there was sand in my food. First and last time going to this restaurant.

    the venue was beautiful. A restored mansion! We came 15 minutes early and after a short wait in the sitting parlor we were promptly seated. Our waitress Meagan was lovely and efficient. She was there when needed her but did not hover. Perfect! Awesome! The food came out on a leisurely schedule and we did not feel rushed or hurried. The food itself was excellent! My gal had Linguini with clam sauce. I had chicken parm. The food and presentation was outstanding! Al in all a wonderful New Year's dinner! We will be back!
