Authentic Italian, great people, great service

My favorite Italian restaurant. My favorite restaurant in Reynoldsburg. Maybe just my favorite place to eat of all time. The food is SO good. From the veal dishes to the pastas to the specials you can't go wrong. I have a hard time trying new dishes because I love the Peasant Tortellini so... read more

We love Scali's. It is true authentic Italian food. Their daily specials are actual specials which are not normally on the menu. They have a great wine list. The servers are very knowledgeable about the food and wine. I love their meatballs and their clams and linguinie is superb. I highly recommend making reservations. The atmosphere is very understated but... More

Overall it was good but the value for the total experience is higher than I would say is reasonable. A good option however from the chain restaurants and especially chain Italian restaurants. If you love the garden of many olives as I call it, then I'd say don't go to Scali's.

Ate here while visiting some friends who live in Columbus. This is their favorite restaurant in Columbus. Once inside, you forget that you are in a strip mall---very elegant dining. Prices are just right. We had the Lasagna and it was superb. Servers were very friendly, and the drinks were very good---martinis. Salads are very fresh, too. There is plenty... More

We have been dining at Scali's for 18 years (ever since we moved to the Columbus, Ohio area) and I just realized that I have not reviewed them. We just dined there two weeks ago and as a super-loyal customer I want to share my thoughts on this restaurant. I feel so lucky to have traveled to so many cities... More

My dinner experience tonight was a visual and gastronomic pleasure. My front row seat looked directly into the kitchen. I enjoyed watching the chefs ply their trade and interact with the wait staff. The outgoing dishes passed by and all looked great. My pick tonight, spaghetti with meatballs was very good. Helen, my server, was knowledgable about the menu and... More

If you aren't a regular don't expect pleasantries! I truly felt like we were going to be yelled at and hear " No Pasta for You!" The food is good & meatballs are great but I could do with out the ginormous basil leaves. We choose to get carry out so we won't be abused by the "Misses that is... More

Our children and grandchildren attended my birthday dinner at Scali. Each person had a fantastic meal. Some of us, including the grandchildren, could eat only half, but we loved the leftovers for lunch. The delicious bread was on the table as we were seated; orders were taken efficiently, and the food was on the table in no time. No one... More

Scali's is our favorite restaurant! We have celebrated graduations, anniversaries, new babies, and birthdays here. The staff is gracious and knowledgeable, but the food is just outstanding. You cannot have a bad dish here and I would recommend to everyone! They also offer GF pasta. My favorite dishes are the unique specials.

Scali is a hidden gem. The service and food are excellent. The seafood is always cooked to perfection. Prices are extremely reasonable. I eat here whenever I'm in town.
