We were just amazed at how fabulous the food was here. The staff here were just brilliant and understood us with their recommendations. Was fast as well. So impressed. We will be back. Better Italian than Lygon st Carlton.

We dined at La Scala for our anniversary. And note we dined in the finer restaurant as they have a fine dining and a takeaway restaurant next door to each other. Food was delicious if a little expensive but worth it for a special occasion....Note that we ordered a takeaway pizza the following night and were not impressed. Very average and still expensive. So stick to fine dining.More

A nice place that is seems quite poular with groups. The food is good and backed up by fresh seasonal produce on the plate. They have an extensive wine list both local and wider. Would go again.

The place was buzzing, we got the last table on a Thursday night. We had 5 people and we all got big serves. 2 of us had 2 entrees, it was too much. The meals were all tasty. tHE scallops in burnt butter were a...bit bland, i"d have liked some lemon. Pasta was good, veal was good. Not convinced on the zuchinni flowers. Still worth trying in each new place.More

La Scala restaurant was recommended to us by a local winery and the food and experience did not disappoint. Delicious food, accompanied by warm, friendly and prompt service. Portion sizes are generous and our youngest ate his weight in pasta - always a good sign...:) A must for anyone visiting the Griffith area.More

This was our fourth visit oner almost 25 years and a must every tume we venture into this area. Pizza superb and veal scallopini excellent. Prices, apart from wines, are very reasonable given the superb dining experience. Staff deserve special mention as they are all...very welcoming and thoroughly professional, even on the bimusiest nights. Very highly recommendedMore

This delightful Italian restaurant has well established itself as the #1 place in Griffith to eat. You leave the restaurant having felt you’ve made new friends and we can’t praise Renee’ enough for her level of service, knowledge of menu and wine suggestions - all...absolutely spot on! Tucked away in a little corridor off the Main Street, do not be put off by the outside. Menu is extensive, servings half or full on many items and all priced well. We will definitely come back if in the area again! Suitable for all age groups - everyone becomes part of the La Scala Family!More

This restaurant does not look like it has had an upgrade in 30 years - who cares! The food is outstanding and the service was excellent. It is a vibrant, noisy, typical Italian restaurant. We dined in "the tablecloth section" (as they called it) for...some "finer" dining but suggest if you were after great pizza and pasta, the "non-tablecloth" section would be great as well.More

Amazing food! My boyfriend and I visited on a Saturday night and the services was great and the food was even better. There was not a long wait for food even though the restaurant was full. Would highly recommend to anyone visiting Griffith
