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.

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. We... More

Offers a range of dishes you wont get like this in egypt. A bit overpriced, but u get a lot for your money, so actually a great deal. Small outside dining place can get a bit crowded.

Last year in the same Great Bairam holiday I could not find a table in La Scala, so this year I reserved a table for my family in La Scala a month before my visit to ElGouna. The menu is written with chalk on two boards one indoor and the other outdoor, which caused many questions to the waiters about... More

We ordered fillet and chicken with honey sauce .... both were ordinary nothing special in them... the chicken was overcooked and dry but the sauce was great... fillet was good overall, after that we ordered ice cream (we found pieces of paper in it by the way ) and it was not special...also panna cotta was not good at all

Went there for dinner and had the beef fillet, cooked to a perfect medium. Very tender cut of meat, and perfectly seasoned. Comes with two different sauces, hand-cut potato wedges, and grilled peppers & courgettes. Wine selection is okay. Good tiramisu, but alcohol free.
