La Scola Tuscan Grill
Although they come from different backgrounds—Gus Nicolaidis was born and raised in Toledo, and Moussa Salloukh immigrated to the United States from Lebanon—together the duo opened La Scola Tuscan Grill. Despite their cultural backgrounds, La Scola has been commended for its authenticity—The Blade praises the spaghetti bolognese for reminding the reviewer "of Rome for the lightness of the veal and cream and with a dash of marinara sauce."
Aside from Italian staples, La Scola serves more than a dozen appetizers, including homemade bread featuring fresh basil and mozzarella cheese, and a host of pizzas, as well as Lake Superior whitefish and new york strip steak, among other surf 'n' turf options. Dishes are complemented by the restaurant's dozens of wines, draft beers, and house cocktails.
