Food never Disappoints...Great Atmosphere – I've loved this restaurant for over 30 years! The food is fantastic...service is hit or miss depending on the wait staff sometimes unfortunately. Garlic dinner rolls are addictive.
Great – The atmosphere is great and the food was plenitful and delicious! Well worth the money! Even the seafood wasn't outrageoulsy expensive like at most nicer-dining places like here.
LOVE this place – We love this place. just wish we coudl eat here more often. Please send out coupons. Thanks!
Great taste for a great price! – I have always said that a great Italian restaurant can be based on the quality of their Alfredo sauce. If you agree then you find they are top notch. I haven't had anything there that I didn't love. Their prices are very reasonable and recommend Scalini's to anyone who loves Italian food.
Yummy! – The atmosphere is great and the food was plenitful and delicious! Well worth the money! Even the seafood wasn't outrageoulsy expensive like at most nicer-dining places like here.
Love it – Great place. Been going for years. Great garlic rolls. You can do a lot worse than Scalinis. Try it and it will get on your FAv list
If you like real Italian food, prepare to be disappointed.... – Ever had really great lasagna? You know the kind: several layers of pasta with cheese, Italian sausage, rich meat sauce and more cheese? Well you won't find it here. Expect ground hamburger, poorly seasoned sauce, skimpy cheese and only the bare minimum pasta. The salad was OK but again only the bare minimum. Their garlic rolls are golfball sized bread puffs drenched with garlic infused oil. No doubt this method saves the kitchen preparation time. You only wish they had used that time more effectively preparing other parts of the meal.
I ate at 6:30 PM and the place was not at all crowded, but the sevice was really slow. Much as I hate to say it, the Olive Garden would be a better choice and it's just across the street.
Great Meal! – Ive never had a bad meal here. The salad and rolls are the best!! I got them for a double whammie and went on my birthday (got my meal free) and got there before 6:30 so my guests dinner was only 9.95. Always great service too. Highly recommended.
Not a good experience! – My husband & were seated promptly and our orders were taken quickly. Like all the other people said a salad and bread rolls were brought to the table. The salad wasn't very big (& I'm not a big eater!) but was fine & the bread rolls were very garlicky & rustic they were good to me, but my husband had to keep pulling bits of garlic skin out of his mouth!
Our glasses were kept full & but when our mains came out there were so disappointing. I got the Cannelloni Del Mar which was a very small portion (again I'm not a big eater) & it had the extreme minimal amount of seafood.My husbands spaghetti and meatballs with marinara sauce was horrible. The meatballs did not taste freshly made and there was basically no sauce, just some pasta water with less then a handful of diced tomatoes. The waiter didn't even ask why my husband didn't finish the meal, he just said he was going to get the check. We waited 10 minutes and the manager came by and asked it we were ok. We told him we were still waiting for the check, when he asked the waiter, & he said he thought we were waiting for our food!
My best friend is Italian and I come from somewhere that has a lot of traditional Italian restaurants, this was pretty bad & we won't be going back. To compare a "traditional" Italian restaurant to the Olive Garden is like comparing Panda Express to real traditional Chinese Food. They are two completely different things, however in this case, maybe one in the same!
I wanted to lick my plate!!! – Went to this restaurant just because I was given a gift certificate.... Oh my god! I dont even know what I ordered--- some sort of lemon chicken--- but it was the best meal i've had in ages. Scalini's is located in the shopping plaza next to Best Buy, and honestly i never thought a restaurant there would be any good, but the food really is to die for!! Just like the other reviews have said, the garlic rolls, and the salad were delicious, and would have filled me up plenty, but the chicken was amazing as well.... yum!! I cant wait to go back so i can try some of the italian pastries that looked so good....
