We went for an early dinner one night, and everything was amazing: food, views, staff. Thank you so much! And seafood linguini is the best I had in a very long time.

We came to Scala based on the reviews and it did not disappoint. We had grilled octopus, shrimps and pesto linguini. The food tastes great, the view is amazing and the prices are fair. The staff are really friendly and kind. We recommend it!

Beautiful place in front of the sea. It’s a fancy restaurant with a great atmosphere. We had a nice dinner. It’s quite crowded, so it’s better to reserve in advance.

This place is absolutely fantastic. I tried almost all the restaurants while spending a week here and I can say without a doubt Scala is the best restaurants for those looking for a more fine experience. I ended up going twice for dinner. Service was...outstanding, very attentive, kind and hospitable. The food was great - I can highly recommend the marinated anchovies and fried squid (freshest I’ve ever had). But most importantly, it boasts a stunning view.More

Great view Lovely staff But for a Fiskusse restaurant it’s disappointing to only have 5 fish courses to choose from. Having said hat the seabass was perfect

Food was really good and the staff was incredible. They treaded us so well and made sure that we have a wonderful time. Also you get a beautiful view of the ocean. Would recommend this place 100 %.
