I was traveling alone and i thoroughly enjoyed this meal at a very mellow restaurant. The shrimp with grappa was phenomenal. The view from the terrace is not too shabby either

Just back from EG. Have always eaten here in our 6 stays in EG. This is the most consistently good restaurant we have used. Big bonus this time was Omar Sharif coming into the restaurant. My wife got a smile and wave. He's still got it!!!

The food was very good for both plates we ordered tho the waiter got our order wrong but we were too hungry to wait for them to correct it. The place was nice and so was the food.

La scala is a small restaurant serving mainly pasta dishes and some other specialties with a nice selection of wine. There is an indoor and outdoor seating by candles available, overlooking the port of El Gouna. This place is highly desired among their customers therefore i strongly recommend to make an reservation prior your arrival. We are speaking about two... More

Food is more than amazing, very expensive, though. There is a slight problem with the service, waiters are not fully aware of the menu, they are not flexible with replacing sides as well. Spaghetti Marinara and the Salmon plate are the best we have tasted. For desserts Tiramisu and the Salame chocolate ones are very good too.

Restaurant was completely empty as we turned up at 19.00, to be greeted by 'reservation?' No we didn't have one so we occupied a table for two. From start to finish the service was completely useless; dishes/cutlery just put in front of us with a scowl. OK, maybe the server did look like he'd just been dragged in off the... More

Went to La Scala for two evening meals as a break from hotel all inclusive menu. Had excellent pizza and tiramisu on first visit. Staff were very friendly and service was good. Paid second visit and had ravioli. Again very good service and an excellent meal.

The reason I'm writing again is that this restaurant has a serious problem with service. We weren't staying at El Gouna, but at another region within Hurghada, and remembering the delicious food we had had a couple of months earlier, we decided to drive all the way there (about 40 mins) just to taste again that exquisite italian food.
