In 1969 a secret homemade dough recipe and a specially blended sauce gave birth to a fast favorite pastime for Philadelphians…eating a slice of Apollo pizza.
Four “Best of Philly” titles and six Apollo pizzerias later, our seventh location opened its doors in 2005. LaScala Restaurant Group’s first full service restaurant, LaScala’s Restaurant & Bar in center city Philadelphia, is located on the corner of 7th & Chestnut Street. Serving a full selection of homemade Italian American cuisine, a full-service bar, and a dedicated staff, LaScala’s was an instant success. Our expanded menu was so well-received, we quite appropriately changed this location’s name to an Italian one – OURS.
In 2011, LaScala’s expanded the brand, opening LaScala’s Pronto, located at 1501 Spring Garden Street in Philadelphia. Pronto offers their customers a way to enjoy Italian-American Home-Style Fast! Serving our same menu, Pronto specializes in take-out and delivery service, while also offering dine-in, BYOB. Our customers love the outdoor seating and family-friendly atmosphere.
In 2016, the group opened LaScala’s Fire, located in the Promenade at Sagemore, in Marlton, NJ. With its modern décor and youthful atmosphere, Fire brought a new “flare” to the LaScala’s brand. Specializing in Wood-Fired cooking, Fire offers patio seating, BYOB and new “LaScala’s Favorites” that make your mouth water.
In the heart of South Philadelphia, 2017 brought LaScala’s Birra to the LaScala Restaurant Group. LaScala’s Birra is the newest restaurant to join the group. Formerly “Birra”, this location was rebranded to bring yet a different aspect to the group; Creative Pizza, Artisan Italian, World Beers.
For twelve years our customers have been dedicated to us and have been like part of the family. With the LaScala family growing, it seemed only appropriate for us to bring our food to your events.
