With the Wait

It's been a very long time since we've eaten here, and we were not surprised by the 35 minute wait on a Saturday night. We had a glass of wine at the bar, which had an extremely short list of wines, and all in the sub-par category. But, it helped pass the time. We were greeted immediately and... read more

We went on a date night. At 6pm there was only a 10 minute wait so that was good - when we left at 7:15 there were a lot of people waiting, even though the booth across from us remained unoccupied for most of the time we were there. It was so dark was had to use a flashlight to... More

I had my first meal at Scalini's over 30 years ago, I still dine here several times a year. The salad and garlic knots have not changed a bit, they are still wonderful. Staff is still friendly and very attentive. Entrees these days can be hit or miss, I've always loved the Viel parm here but the last 2 visits... More

I went here with a party of six for a business trip. The food is excellent and heavy on the garlic. They serve small rolls drenched in garlic butter and the salad is fresh and tasty. The food was very good and I had a combo of chicken parm and spaghetti with sausage. It was heavy but hit the spot.

I have been here twice, once on my 2mom's birthday but also on mine. The food was very good and the service was ok. The rolls are to die for. Follow the advice of ordering when you first sit down, then just keep them coming. My server was not friendly nor was she informative about the menu choices. My first... More

This was my second visit here and it was good! One drawback was the long wait and our server did not greet us for 10 minuets after we were seated. As far as the food goes it was delicious and the portions were way more than any human could possibly eat.

If you want consistency and a time warp this might be your place. Nothing ever changes but is that a bad thing? Good inexpensive Italian food.

Scalinis is our local favorite. Not only was it perfect on our first date because of the privacy and ambiance, it is informal and cozy for a regular night out. We order to-go often and it makes for more than 2 meals. Highly recommended the Chicken Ripeno. We love to sit at the cool old bar, service is always great!!

Great garlic bread and salads, my spaghetti and meatballs were perfect and our whole group really enjoyed their food. The panna cotta was also delicious, I would go back in a heart beat!
