Bartolomeo II della Scala (died 12 July 1381) was lord of Verona from 1375 until his death, together with his brother Antonio I della Scala.

The illegitimate son of Cansignorio della Scala, he obtained the power in Verona after the latter's death by assassinating Cansignorio's brother, Paolo Alboino. He ruled Verona, who was then bankruptcy and forced to accept the protectorate of Bernabò Visconti.

After a period of moderate reign, Bartolomeo was assassinated by his brother Antonio.
