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

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.
