I'll cut to the chase here and advise that I don't think it appropriate for a restaurant that serves pizza, even in a pleasant outdoor setting, to charge like it is providing 5 star dining simply because it is situated within the old city limits of Prague; but that is exactly what LaScala does; and I for one don't appreciate it.
The two waiters who greeted us the evening we dined there treated the arrival of our party of 7 with barely disguised disdain; they took far too long after seating us to organise and deliver drinks; in fact after our arrival I watched those same two waiters standing by idly for at least a couple of minutes, rather than think that delivering the drinks menu promptly may be the next thing to do.
If it had just been myself or I'd been with one other, I would have decided at this point that I/we had made the wrong choice of restaurant and simply decamped, but anyone who has travelled in a party of seven, including several children, know that this is a big decision/operation; and there is always the 'hope' that things will improve.
Well they didn't to any marked degree. It was a restaurant that obviously traded on pizza, so I ordered one for my main. It was such a forgettable pizza that I cannot even remember the filling range, but it's one feature I do remember was the lack of generosity of filing. It reminded me of the sort of pizza one gets at a place where they sell pizza at loss-leader prices and then attempt to mitigate their loss by applying minimal filings.
One of our party had the roast knuckle dish. It looked more impressive, and the top part of the meat tasted very good. Somehow though there was a failure in the cooking in that the underside of the boned meat was 'sludgy' in both appearance and taste. Not a technical term I know, but I'm sure any reader will understand what I am trying to describe here.
The ambience of sitting outside and eating on a warm Prague summer evening is great, but the other features of our dining experience, especially the quantum of the bill for what we had, were all negatives. I could not provide any recommendation to eat here.
