As one of the more upscale restaurants in town, Scalini's is worth a visit if you want a nice glass of wine (not the most comprehensive list but sufficient) and great food. The pasta is pretty good and the seafood is good. My favourite items on the menu - the pizzette and the cockles meal.. Delicious!!! The layout of the... More

I had the Aranccini Napoli for my starter and it was so tasty followed by a beautiful main which was the fish of the day. I didn't think this meal could get any better but then the dessert came out. The Misiluki Flambé which is a Banana flambé with Kahlua & cinnamon, served with wonton crisp, vanilla ice cream &... More

Enjoyed my salmon fresco very much. Recommend eating there. Food was made quickly for us and the dessert was delicious. Only thing was parking availability as I had to keep moving my car for other customers to get out.

My husband had the Lamb meal and her said it was quite good, I had the local fish dish, and this was not a good choice, the fish was tough, the lemon sauce just so so,for a restaurant that is suppose to be the best in town, I don't think so.

We stayed in Samoa for 8 days and this was a highlight of the trip. After having booked a Hotel that said it was known for its food and finding out on arrival that was advertising hype we were looking for a decent meal.
