For $29 from 5-7pm this restaurant offers a 3-course meal but it only offers a few choices for each course BUT if you like seafood it is probably a good option for you. My husband and I don't eat seafood and were not impressed with our meals but my father who ate the stuffed grouper loved his. The dessert was... More

We had a delicious dinner here! My husband had the filet and said is was awesome, and I had the glazed salmon. It was cooked beautifully and tasted great! The waitress was very sweet and helped us choose a gluten free option for my daughter as well.

Don't go for service. The food came 45 min after we sat down. Not even bread and we had to ask for the drinks twice. The food was good and so was the price. Not to return.

We were enjoying a leisurely walk when approached by a Scala employee who showed us their dinner specials for the day which came with a complimentary glass of wine. I told him that we did not drink alcohol and he was a little shocked, but the menu was impressive and we gave it a try. The dinner and service were... More

Excellent food!! Absolutely extraordinary customer service in a relaxing ambience. I was told to visit a different more famous Italian restaurant by my family made the right choice to bring me to this one. It was one of the greatest time in Aruba

We were looking for a nice place for dinner and Carlos from Scala caught our eye on the street. After debating the other options nearby, we decided to give the early bird special a try. For $27/each for a glass of wine, appetizer, entree & dessert the price was reasonable and the food was good- not 5 star good, but... More

Perfect location with a view especially when the night lights up. The broccoli and cheese soup was amazing. And I'm sure all the other soups here are as well. I had the chicken parmesan which was outstanding. Fresh bread was mmm mmm good. Don't miss it. Good place for the whole family.

We ate at scala thinking it was going to be an amazing dinner. My chicken was a little tough and my husband said his meal was just ok. The drinks were wonderful. My one major complaint is that on the merchant copy of our receipt our entire credit card number was displayed however on the customer copy only had the... More

Casual but sophisticated ideally located on the high rise strip on a sprawling corner of Paseo Herencia Mall. Scala is a bustling outdoor and indoor restaurant wich features two European trained chefs with Mediterranean and Caribbean influences. The bar offers a great variety of cocktails and martinis and for the wine lovers there is a very extensive wine list, both by glass as by the bottle. Scala is a dining experience you should not miss while visiting Aruba.
