La Scala's move to larger quarters serves it well. You'll find the same home-style Italian cooking, but served up in airier environs.

THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED La Scala Restaurant Review

: When Little Italy's La Scala moved from its tiny second-floor space to more spacious climes around the corner, chef Nino Germano made a very smart move. The dining rooms are airier, but still cozy enough to match the unpretentious quality of his classic Italian kitchen. Basics like minestrone thick with vegetables, Roma beans and pasta, and polenta with porcini mushroom sauce are soulful in his hands. And traditional favorites like scampi with garlic, veal piccata and chicken Parmigiana transcend the tired execution of the competition in the red sauce joints that pepper this old Italian neighborhood. There's good home-style cooking to be had here in a relaxed atmosphere.
