Celebrating 60 years in business, La Scala is a quintessential Beverly Hills lunch and dinner restaurant famous around town and beyond for its famous chopped salad. La Scala, born in 1956 as the labor of love of Spanish-born chef Jean Leon, from the get-go carved its niche as one of the city’s leading Italian restaurants. As the first restaurant in Los Angeles to make its own handmade pasta and the first to serve white truffles, La Scala quickly became known as the Italian hot spot in the city, attracting Hollywood’s elite and the attention of high-status individuals visiting Los Angeles, including six US presidents. In addition to Leon’s legendary chopped salad, La Scala’s no-frills menu is packed with Italian comfort food and plenty of options for every taste and mood, from linguini with clams to eggplant parmesan. La Scala is currently open for takeout and delivery, serving up lunch and dinner Monday through Saturday.
Just because we are stuck at home doesn’t mean we have to give up fine dining.
