Celebrated my 40th Birthday here while on holiday at the recommendation of the staff at the Orator Hotel. Excellent Meal and atmosphere. Great value for money. A true gem to find a restaaurant of this quality in Apia

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. .

If you want to pay for excellent food and service then you cannot go past Scalini's. We had a great night out and ate entrée, main, and a sumptuous desert. Great service and atmosphere from a restaurant you would expect worldwide.

Scalini's was just up the road from our hotel, the Samoan Outrigger. We had a slightly precarious walk up the road in the dark, but when we arrived we were seated inside a nice cool restaurant furnished in a minimalist beige style. The service was excellent - the waitstaff were attentive and friendly without being pushy or ingratiating. We all... More

I ate here twice in my trip to Samoa and I wish I'd found this restaurant ealier! The location is a fair way back from the waterfront. About a 5 minute drive up Cross Island Road. If you're going for lunch its close to the Robert Loius Stevenson Museum so visit that afterwards to walk off the amazing meal. The... More
