A weeknight family dinner spot, recently renovated LaScala's (formerly Apollo pizza; same owners, more upscale venture) has a cozy, stone-and-wood atmosphere, big booths and chatty waitresses. Get the crispy calamari tossed with greens, chopped tomatoes, cukes and olives in a tangy vinaigrette to start, then share a few huge entrees, like the baked chicken and spinach cannelloni, veal involtini or well-received pizzas.
Chef was rude and management worthless. We simply complained that we were not allowed to substitute pasta for vegetables. We were charged for the veggies and both the chef and manager made it clear that nothing was going to change that. Really the chef had to criticize my choice that pasta is not healthier then veggies? Is it not the client's choice? Well my choice is NEVER eating here again. Posted by Delma: Sep. September 24th, 2012 at 4:03 PM
Delicious food with just the right tomato sauce taste. Homemade everything with the perfect spices. Upon entry you will love the smells from the kitchen. Posted by Tim: Aug. August 20th, 2010 at 11:05 AM
La Scala has delicious Italian food in a restaurant that has that neighboorhood casual atmosphere. Servers are friendly and knowledgable. Kitchen is accomodating Vegetarian requests. Has both outdoor and indoor seating w/ great dinner music and good service. Only downside is that outdoor dining can sometimes be a little noisy w/ the Septa buses going by! Desserts are great too!
