This restaurant was recommended after a visit to Codemo Smallgoods. My wife and I were told that it would be a good place to go if we liked Italian food. This was a fabulous restaurant with truely genuine food at reasonable prices. The waitress and staff were all very helpful, which made selecting from the vast menu options just that... More

It's enough to make you want to live in Italy. The food, the atmosphere, the service - could have been anywhere in Italy. We were told everyone has to have the Margareta pizza topped with rocket, prosciutto and parmesan. They were right. When in Griffith it's a must

Crowded and noisy - but fun! Food and service was good. It's a "must" if you go to Griffith. The restaurant is in the basement of a building but it has a ramp leading down to it - no stairs.

What a wonderful evening last night at La Scala. Three of us arrived, famished! We ordered a large plate of calamari even before drinks and this arrived very promptly to satisfy our immediate needs. Ahhhhhh... so then onto a cocktail each, before ordering mains from our obliging waiter. The BBQ salmon was delish and served on a bed of tasty... More

The service at this tradition Italian restaurant was outstanding. The staff were friendly and cheerful making the night an enjoyable success. The restaurant and cafe were packed on a Thursday night yet our meals came promptly accompanied by good local reds. Try the rocket pizza. Bit of a local legend and a great shared starter. Recommended!

Getting to the restaurant is a little difficult if you are in heels or not too stable on your feet as you have to negotiate a steep concrete ramp-like path to equally steep stairs that lead down to a green door that once opened leaves no doubt that you have come to the right place! The aromas that are coming... More

This is a busy restaurant, tightly packed and quite loud. So they must be doing something right. However I felt a little uncomfortable leaning in to let people pass. The staff were friendly and efficient, but the decor, seating and kitchen looked tired and shabby. The food was generous and quick however the presentation was missing. It wasn't relaxing or...

Went here with my wife for dinner. Extensive menu and wine list. Had pizza and pasta. Pasta excellent and pizza very good. Service exceptional. Attentive but relaxed. Wine overpriced I thought for locally sourced. Menu prices reasonable. Would go again.

I was staying in Griffith one night only. A number of locals recommended this place. The entry is down a lower-level walkway, off the street. I almost didn't go in because there were other Italian restaurants on the main drag, at street level with windows, which this place lacks. Food was good but I struggled to understand why it is...
