THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Cafe La Scala Restaurant Review

: From the frescoed walls to the warmth of the maƮtre d's greeting, this narrow, busy trattoria, located smack dab in the middle of downtown Burlingame, provides an authentically Italian experience. Scoring a seat by the window is the perfect place for people-watching and enjoying the hustle bustle of the city while seated. The La Scala, a scaloppine of thin medallions of veal prepared with eggplant, tomato and mozzarella, will transport you to Florence. Another dish brought to new heights is the house lasagna, made with layers of ground veal, spinach, cheeses and a creamy tomato sauce (served only at lunch). Standouts among the desserts are the house-made ice creams in a variety of flavors, including a luxurious strawberry and chocolate torta.
