Time Out says
The name of this charming little East Dulwich spot is almost a misnomer. Coffee is undoubtedly a focus but the full Italian menu, the charcuterie boards and the wine list chalked up on the blackboard make this much more than a coffee house.
Expect breakfast pastries, smashed avocado on toast, colourful Italian sandwiches, pizzas, focaccia breads and lasagne on the food menu. Wines are all Italian, and served alongside Aperol and Campari spritzes, negronis and beers from London Beer Lab.

It's the best coffee by far in East Dulwich! The produce is fresh and beyond tasty and they are hands down the friendliest people ever! They are hard working and put their souls into the cafe. We have moved area and still travel back every weekend. It's a joy just going in there!
This is my favourite place in the world! I come here to write and to chat with the two lovely owners who've become friends now! There's no other place in east dulwich that is more welcoming than la Scala!! 5 stars!
Eva and Andre are the perfect hosts, creating a warm and friendly local cafe, with excellent coffee and the best panini in London, filled with their amazing Italian ingredients. Apertivo nights are a must!
My favorite haunt as a coffee addict and lover. Fantastic coffee, foods and brilliant wine evenings with Eva and Andre, who are completely passionate about what they do!
Best coffee in ED and the toasted sarnies are pretty darn good too!
