We were greeted as soon as we walked in and were seated immediately [without a reservation]. Our food was amazing! My husband had smoked salmon with asparagus over mostaciolli. I had baked ravioli bolognese. Both were out of this world. We had a wonderful pinot noir also. Service was quick, friendly and helpful. The atmosphere was comfortable and not "overdone".... More

I took my family here for parent's weekend at Purdue after hearing rave reviews...we were not disappointed. The menu was a versatile and delicious, with something for everyone. There's also a lovely outdoor seating area for lovely nights. I look forward to taking my family back again, soon.

We took our son and friends for dinner. Service was fast, we were able to talk and listen to each other. It was delightful and fun.

Every visit to Lafayette Indiana must include a visit to La Scala - absolutely delicious - fresh ingredients, innovative dishes, great cocktail menu, private room and outdoor dining available - truly every single dish I have ever eaten there ( and I have been there over a dozen times over the last six years) is fabulous - not inexpensive but...

Look, I live in a large urban area compared to Lafayette (Cincinnati, Ohio). I've eaten some incredible authentic Italian (No...not Olive Garden). This is some of the best Italian I have ever put in my mouth. The value was great, the atmosphere we fun. We were surprised to find such high-end quality Italian in a mid-sized city. We come to...

Hosted 24 people for a "Farewell" lunch. Ordered off the menu for 24 people. Food and drinks were delivered quickly - difficult with no limits on the menu choices. The kitchen delivered as well as our server. The guest of honor thoroughly enjoyed his lunch. Food was over the top and the drinks flowed freely. Thanks for a memorable farewell.

They have pretty good Italian food with a nice selection of wines and Italian liquor. The veal piccata was delicious and gluten free options as well. Great service.

Food was average. There is much better Italian fare available for the price. But this is Greater Lafayette, so maybe there are not many options. Service was mediocre to the best. The servers and the manager clearly need training on greeting customers, taking care of them and generally making the guests feel much more welcome and cared for. That said,... More
