If you haven’t stopped into La Scala, you might be missing out. Named after the opera house in Milan Italy, you’ll feel like you’ve stepped into Europe as you walk through the doors of La Scala Italian Bistro. La Scala has been in business since 1972 – for reference, the city of Dublin wasn’t even incorporated until 1987 and ever since has held a special place in the hearts of residents and visitors alike.

Here are 4 reasons to swoon over La Scala in Dublin:


Owner William Lalli ensures that the Italian authenticity of La Scala’s food shines through by incorporating his hometown of Cerreto Di Vastogirardi, Italy’s into each dish. His son, Nick Lalli is the Vice President of Operations, making their Bistro a true family affair. At La Scala, you’ll feel like you’ve been welcomed into their Italian home.

Woodfired Pizza

Did someone say pizza? One of the best kept secrets and dishes we recommend at La Scala is their original woodfired pizza. Purchased from Italy, the stone, dome shaped oven cooks your slices from the top-down usually making them crisp to perfection in just 7-8 minutes. Pick from favorite toppings like capicola, artichoke Florentine and Cajun chicken. Brava!
