    Food was excellent. Staff friendly. Only concern was that I booked online through The Fork, received the confirmation email but the restaurant didn't have any evidence of my booking. Just lucky they had room for us

    To be honest I thought I had booked into another restaurant as I was trying to find one that was central to my location & my friends. What a gem we found in La Scala, we will certainly be back. Thank you for the good food & service

    Extremely disappointed to make a booking online for New Year’s Eve 7pm...confirmation received via email, only to arrive and restaurant closed. Poor form. Unprofessional. Bad business. Update your website to indicate being closed, disable the option to book online. As an interstate visitor, I won’t be referring business.

    I booked a table for two for our anniversary using The Fork but when we got to the venue they did not have our booking however, they managed to put us both onto a four person table but it was in front of the door on a cold night. In my booking with The Fork I had asked for a chair with a full back as I have back pain, so of course that didn't happen so I had a chair with no lower back support. When we discovered that we did not have a booking the person told me that if we book online we should always check by ringing the venue. Surely you either book on line or you ring the venue not both. If I have to ring the venue anyway I may as well just do that and skip The Fork or any online booking system. I ordered calamari which was not in rings but big sections which is okay but the coating on it was awful and left a terrible aftertaste. My husband had gnocchi with spinach and walnuts which was served in a sort of small flan dish with one layer of gnocchi sprinkled with walnuts and one small spinach leaf. However, the chips and wedges are good and to be honest, we have been there for breakfast a long time ago and it was good.

    I was greeted by a very friendly young staff. She was welcoming and her customer service skill was amazing good. We didnt have to wait long before she came and took our orders. We also didnt have to wait long for our food to come out. Our dining experience was a pleasant one tonight.

    The food was very good and there was plenty to choose from including specials. We all enjoyed our meals and would definitely recommend this restaurant. Unfortunately the toilets needed attention.

    The restaurant is a local for us and we were delighted that it has reopened after the COVID-19 restrictions. We enjoyed well prepared Italian food at reasonable prices.

    The service was very friendly and the food choice was good. The food quality was good too. The waitress and waiters were showing respect to us as the food came a bit late due to a higher number of customers.

    There were 2 of us. We ordered a main each & a garlic bread. First meal came out. Five minutes later, second meal came out. We reminded them about garlic bread & they delivered that a few minutes later. Didn't ruin the experience but was a bit dodge.

    The overall dinner was good however one of our guests lasagne was cold in the middle. It was sent to be warmed up but took a long time and the rest of the table had finished their dinner. Also took a long time to clear the table for us to be able to consider dessert.

    Came with a couple of friends- we ordered pasta, pizza, garlic bread and sweet potato fries to share- very fully but all dishes were full of flavour and great fresh ingredients. Very happy

    La Scala is a nice enough family cafe but it lacks a bit of atmosphere. Having a TV on in the background that drowns out the sound of any music playing is always going to be annoying for customers. The food was quite tasty but lacked seasoning and were, we felt, in smallish portions. Service was quick and attentive though and the staff really polite. I think this is the sort of place that does better when it’s busier and is a bit bland and meh when it’s not. Saying that we will most likely come again sometime but perhaps not on a Sunday night when it’s empty.

    Staff couldn’t find booking at first. So put us at an unpleasant table where the seats were too low for the dining table. Might have worked if we were just having coffee. Asked to be moved so we were put in a table of bright sunshine. Moved table to get sun out of eyes. Realised later there was a partial blind covering one side but staff didn’t point it out. Clearly they had not reserved us a table.
