Terrific food and service!

Last night a good friend of mine and I dined here at Scalini's, which is located snug in the corner of the Promenade Shopping Center off cobb parkway, beside Retro Fitness and Bestbuy.

This place opened in 1980 and I was one of the first customers. It's 35 years later and it's still a great place to eat. The atmosphere, the music and the food are classic Italiano. We will definitely be back!

This is my go to favorite Italian restaurant in the world! The best Alfredo, the best bread, the best salad! I love the atmosphere with the old antiques and the service is fantastic! Go there!

Place is old but food very good! Has that old place smell when you come in but you will forget that once the food arrives. Salad bowl was huge! Garlic bread is not your regular toasted bread but comes with butter and real garlic bits.

This is the most authentic Italian food in ATL. A true NY atmosphere. I definitely recommend Scalini's. I've been dining here since 1981.

Had dinner with a friend here tonight - I hadn't been in several years, but everything was as wonderful as I remembered. I love that they have sliced beets and garbanzo beans in their salad, and the dressing is very good. The garlic rolls are as heavenly as ever, but definitely not for the faint of heart when it comes... More

It has been >10 years since I ate here! I took a chance and hosted a business dinner here and was so pleased! The food remains some of the best Italian I've ever had down South! Everyone in my group thought it was outstanding as well. Can't wait to go back...and this time I won't wait 10 years!!!

We really fancied an Italian meal and Scalini's did not disappoint. A warm and friendly welcome, excellent and reasonably priced food.The restaurant has lots of character with wooden booths which add to the atmosphere and diner's experience.
