Old School Italian

There's just something about this old strip-mall Italian restaurant that keeps me coming back. Yes, the decor is dated, the menu is predictable, but it reminds me of Italian restaurants of my childhood. The complimentary garlic knots are swimming is a yummy, very garlicky pool of butter.

Scalini's is always a treat. They are owned by the same people as Provino's and their food and menu is the exact same! This is a birthday tradition for us. If you go on your actual birthday, your meal is free (I'm pretty sure you also have to bring a guest). The food is always delicious. The rolls are always... More

This is a nice family restaurant with great customer service. I was pleased to find a gluten-free menu and great dinner salads!

Great Italian restaurant in Smyrna, GA. The real twist was that it has a reputation for labor inducing eggplant. They have loads of baby pics in the halls and if you give birth within 48 hrs you get a T-shirt and gift certificate. Nearly every table had at least one pregnant woman. We took my past due daughter and had... More

The food is delicious and the service is great!!!!!!! It is worth the money. Everyone is very friendly. If you go on your birthday your meal is free and they really make you feel special.

This used to be one of my favorite earring places. The salad, rolls, Spaghetti and Chicken Marsala were the best. I have been there dozens of times and always enjoyed it. My last three trips were terrible. It was like a totally different place. The only reason I went back was because of all the years that I had enjoyed... More

The service is exceptional and the food is the icing on the cake! The atmosphere is cozy and comfortable and true Italian at it's best. It's a hidden jewel and can't wait to go back.

I stopped in for a quick Ash Wednesday meatless meal before heading to church. I had about 30 minutes (preferably less) in order to order, eat, and get out. Accomplished! Everyone was quite helpful in making that happen, and my meal was served quickly and happily! I was out with time to spare, and my meal was delicious.

We were visiting someone in the area who took us to this delightful casual Italian restaurant. The never-ending family-style salad (greens, tomatoes, mushrooms, etc. & light Italian dressing) and fresh-baked rolls dripping in fresh-garlic butter were only the beginning...the mouth-watering menu choices made it difficult to choose, but of course we did. EVERYTHING we ordered was delicious, but I will... More

This is a local place that has been around for years. Last time I was in there the food was OK but it got cold pretty quickly. I wish they would liven up the place with a nice well lite fireplace or something to make it cozy. It always looks dark. I know that's the ambiance the place is trying... More
