Three of us went here for the great food everyone talks about. The salads were good, but the entrees were mediocre, especially considering the high prices. Desserts were fair. We had 1 coke, 1 glass of wine, 2 salads, 3 average priced entrees ( for them!), and three desserts. Price with tip was $175. This type of meal should have... More

My hubby and I had a wonderful experience this past Saturday evening. Reservations were necessary a week ahead and understandably so. Very large restaurant with an amazing amount of staff, very attentive and knowledgeable. The food was delicious, perfectly prepared fried calamari and quick service. My husband had osso buocco and it was very tender. I had the fettuccine alfredo... More

In the Little Italy section of the Inner Harbor, which you can walk to afterwards to burn off a few calories. Our waiter knew the menu inside and out and was very attentive. It can get a bit loud depending on the table setup, but reasonable nonetheless. Well executed entrees and dishes, a talented chef and staff. With an indoor... More

They were able to seat us on a Thursday night without a reservation. Service was excellent. Food was innovative and well prepared. Came out hot from the kitchen.very good wine list. Specials were interesting. We dined upstairs where there were several large groups. One group had several people who were loud and and using some foul language. Although a difficult... More

This is a Must Do if you want some Old Schoolie Italian with some Local Sea Food in the Mix. Plus a Free Shuttle ride back to home base?? Forget about It!! Make sure you get the Tiramisu and Expresso

Great restaurant with service to and from the hotel. The food was great and they had a lot of choices. The prices are also good for Little Italy. There were two of us. We shares a shrimp. appt. and we both had pasta dishes. I would return.

Yeah, this place is the real deal. The food is crazy delicious. Real American-Italian, especially with everything cooked to order, it proves that food tastes best when prepared by people who care, and La Scala cares about its food . . . a lot. Shout out to Antonio who took such great care of us last night. If you make... More

La Scala is located in Little Italy. Visited on a week night while attending a conference. Had a reservation for two and immediately seated when we arrived. Friendly staff and charming decor - dark woods, light walls, a variety of smaller rooms rather than one large space. Very old school and not Italian cute. Extensive wine list with good wines...

I attended a networking reception in their private 2nd level space and I was impressed with the service. Immediately as I entered the room I was asked my drink order. It was here that I discovered that mojitos taste great with basil instead of mint. I highly recommend these. Their calamari, shrimp, and meatballs were phenomenal.

Great Italian food. Marinated, garlic green beans to start were delightful. Nice wine list. Full Italian menu from homemade pasta to steaks. Pasta was excellent. Warm bread with olive oil good. Caesar salad dressing not my favorite. A little too heavy. I had a basic tomato, basil, garlic pasta that was very good and large serving. Waiter was interesting.....my guess... More
