We stopped in for a late lunch and although they were close to closing were very happy to accommodate us. All our food was pretty good, but must say the special lamb they had just melted in your mouth. Dessert was also great with the cheesecake being the pick! Could not fault here, it is a little bit more formal... More

Scalini's is by far one of the best places to get delicious quality food in Apia. The service is faultless and the food divine. Yes it's pricey but you get what you pay for.

Food was excellent, the sauce on the mussels was great. Service was perfect not too attentive but very helpful when necessary. Very pleasant decor in more of a neighborhood than a Main Street in downtown Apia. We had Italian food with seafood, everything was great.

Stopped here for lunch one day and had a delicious lamb meal. The service was excellent taking into account it was quiet at the time. It is just out of town and very clean and tidy. Would recommend you try it.

Would like to say thank you to Scalini for the great Tiramisu birthday cake for my husbands 70th birthday that we held at Ifiele'ele Plantation. It was very much appreciated by us all. Can recommend them if you require a special birthday cake. If we get back to Samoa will call in and have a meal.

Great menu, superb service, delectable dishes, generous portions and quick turnaround times. That says it all. The ambience is spartan but smart. It's one of those places in any town where you've simply got to go!

This restaurant's menu is delicious. The bread was one of the best I've had - probably cos it was cooked fresh out of the oven. The chicken morrocco dish was to die for, and so was the tuna main dish. The sashimi dish was delicious too as our entree. Go there! Worth every tala and will definitely return.

Dined here for lunch 12pm-3pm. Had the place to myself. Very classy venue but the menu is divine.. Must eat include the pizzette...fried bread with garlic butter. I had the South Island salmon with a light miso crust, tomotao and cucmber stack and tempura prawns...DIVINE! Loads of NZ meats on the menu :)
