Our last night of our 10 day stay in Samoa. We had tried to eat at Scalinis the night before but they were full but glad we persevered and returned the next night to sample the excellent fare, lovely cool atmosphere and great staff.

We were four for lunch. The aircom freezing cold and so the whole atmosphere in the restaurant, which is a bit outside of Apia. The pasta was nice but not "aldente" and the sauce too creamy for italian taste. We had fish as main: two fish were o.k. but the other two over cooked and dry. The service was not... More

Highly recommended seafood restaurant in Apia. AC, modern, perfect service. A bit pricy but definitely worth your money.

Had lunch here. I'm not a big sea-food eater, so the idea of an Italian style lunch appealed. But, we had to wait a while for our food and I'd ordered an eye-fillet steak. True to Italian form - they couldn't cook it. Ordered medium-rare and got a fairly rubbery medium. Not sure if it was the beef, or how... More

We went to Scalinis as we recognised the name from St Heliers in Auckland and it turned out the owners had moved Scalinis to Apia ! We went twice during our 5 day stay in Samoa. The food is delicious and doesn't disappoint, the staff are friendly like we found with everyone in Samoa. I highly recommend eating here.

This restaurant was closest to the Samoan Outrigger Hotel. The food quality was A1 as was the service and ambiance, but in my opinion it was expensive for one on a budget, but still worth a visit. If cost is not an issue then this place most definitely should be one of your dinning exsperiences. An enjoyable evening out. .
