Generous portions of pasta, pan-seared salmon, and traditional Italian entrees proudly display their old-country heritage at Scola’s Restaurant. Like a 19th-century transatlantic stowaway, the dinner menu holds a classic chicken marsala simmered in sweet wine sauce with mushrooms and prosciutto ($14.95) and a haddock margherita sautéed in a sauce of garlic, lemon, and white wine ($14.95). Linguine laced with littleneck clams and topped with fra diavlo sauce ($15.95) make a tasty souvenir from Dante’s trip into the Inferno, and the Marco Pollo ($17.95) consists of a chicken breast with sautéed shallots and sundried tomatoes. During lunch, a separate menu bears sandwiches such as the Bostonian, housing a delectable combo of ham, turkey, and swiss cheese ($5.99).
The dining room’s interior sports white tablecloths illuminated by lamplight, lending an intimacy ideal for both first dates and rustic games of Magic: The Gathering. The restaurant also hosts a regular schedule of live music and entertainment on the weekends.
Visions of the Italian coastline flood in through faux archways painted on the walls at Scola’s Restaurant. While waiting for the main meal, guests can nibble on shrimp scampi and eggplant rollotini or settle a bitter arm-wrestling dispute once and for all. The chefs' classic Italian dishes include chicken cacciatore and shrimp piccata, along with fresh-baked brick oven pizza available on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. There’s an ample seafood selection, too—three sizes of prime rib, haddock, and lobster pie—as well as a few American dishes, including a steak-tip dinner. Guests can also order up sandwiches such as a fried clam roll or meatball sandwich.
In addition stocking to an international assortment of wine and beer, the bartenders mix up martinis that range from classic cosmopolitans to the Real Espresso Martini, which patrons can enjoy in Scola’s TV-ladened lounge.
