Authentic Italian Food

This was my husband and I's first time visiting this restaurant. We went with a couple of friends who go here quite often. From the outside appearance you wouldn't think the place is anything special...its in a strip of stores and looks like just a little hole in the wall. The service was great... read more

Much nicer atmosphere than the strip mall location would suggest. The service was outstanding, and they had a large staff to insure that. Two of us had a seafood pasta special, simply super. Another had a fish special, again superb from presentation to finish. My spouse had veal, again perfect. We shared a bottle of wine, very good match and... More

A nice, small classy little place. Make sure you have a reservation. The staff is wonderful. It is pricey. I had the chicken marsala last week. It was disappointing. It didn't have much flavor. Next time, I'll try something different. Nice place to go for special occasions.

We visited Scali mid-June while passing through Columbus. We arrived at about 7:30 in the evening without a reservation. Scali seated our party of 5 within about 10 minutes. The dining room is very welcoming and features an open kitchen. We enjoyed cocktails and a nice bottle of soave (house feature). We enjoyed the Bruschetta appetizer, salads and bread. The... More

There's really not that much I can say to give any value other than this place ROCKS. I went for my one year anniversary and called ahead. I was able to drop roses off, have the perfect table set up for me, and the roses waiting for us. The owners came and told us congrats and everyone else that worked... More

This is the best restaurant in the Columbus area if you are looking for authentic Italian food. It is family owned and operated. The Veal Saltimbocca is my husband's favorite and fish of the day is mine, specifically the sea bass. We always start off with the Sauteed Portobello. The restaurant is encircled with murals depicting Italian scenery (you can... More

Returned to Scali's after almost 3 years. Not because of a bad experience, but because it's 3 hours from home. As with the last time (my daughter's rehearsal dinner), Scali's was packed on a Wednesday night. Word to the wise - make a reservation!. We were seated promptly, presented menus and wine list. Cocktails and a bottle of wine ordered... More

It was fun visiting an old favorite restaurant that i had not visited for years and finding it unchanged and as authentic as ever. I had not been in this town for a long time and wanted to see if this old spot had maintained it's uniquely home-style menu and character..and it has. This is not the kind of Italian... More

We spend every anniversary at Scali. The atmosphere is very romantic. Service is the tops. Best homemade Italian food in town. Food is very fresh. The pasta dishes are awesome. We highly recommend Scali for special occasions or just for a delicious lunch or dinner. You will definitely love their food.

We stopped in because on mother's day weekend I wanted panna cotta. We were seated by the kitchen and even though we had already eaten by dinner we wee tempted to order a meal! The look and smell of the food leaving the kitchen was that tempting! The panna cotta was so good I got one to go also! We... More
