High ceilings with original elaborate plaster design, richly colored floor tiles, inspired by Monet's kitchen and Scala's old world atmosphere create a comfortable yet elegant ambiance. An eclectic mix of original murals, rich tobacco tones, white linen tablecloths and gilt mirrors and semi-open kitchen produces the look and feel of classic Parisian bistros.
"Scala's Bistro is wonderful, the food is super, the ambience is just about perfect..."
Jim Wood, San Francisco Examiner
"The way the service, food and ambience come together makes it obvious why the restaurant is capturing crowds..."
Michael Bauer, San Francisco Chronicle
"...an enveloping space done up in deep hues of gold and brown, with culinary murals, gilt mirrors, pretty Mediterranean tiles, and a fiery open kitchen that gave off the restorative aromas of roast chicken, lamb and pork."
John Mariani, Esquire
