Neighborhood favorite

Scalini's serves pizza and pasta, including ravioli. Nice sauces, generous portions. The takeout is prompt, but consider a dine-in meal. Service is friendly and attentive. It's a true Lakewood spot; stroll around the collectibles shop. Strike up a conversation. Great single diner spot.

My husband and I ordered a pizza for takeout and it was pretty good, so we decided to dine in one night and it was past 8 pm, it was super crowded and they offered us a table far in the back- the last table and closest to the wait staff's station. It was dark and dingy and there were... More

Small dining area in the front is best if you want to smell what's coming out of the oven. I had the Veal Parm and what made it stand out above others in the same price category ($13 for entree, small salad and bread) was the delicious sauce and the thickness of the veal. It wasn't the typical pounded down... More

Wonderful food, horrifying manger! I am a regular customer there and called last night to complain about a server being rude to me when I placed a pizza delivery order over the phone and also to make sure they got the order right since they have made so many mistakes for which I have overlooked time and time again.

Very crowded on weekends - but on weekdays and weeknights it's fast and convenient. I love their mushroom soup and lasagna. They have a great thin crust pizza. Prices are very reasonable too.

When you call in an order and they tell you it'll be a half hour...it never is, it'll at least be an hour wait. What a joke. Food isn't that great for the long wait...even after you called ahead!

Love this little place. You get a true feel of an authentic Italian restaurant when you walk in the door. It's clean and inviting. The food is excellent. The chicken picatta is my favorite! We also enjoy ordering take out from here as well. This is on our list of places we frequent when in Dallas. Check it out, you... More

Always have great food. They don't take reservations so over dinner hours it can be a bit of a wait. Not a very large place. The pizza is wonderful and served on plastic lunch trays. Wonderful service and superb lunch specials!

Love this place... Great pizza, salads (Greek) amazing. I highly recommend this place as a hole in the wall near downtown Dallas. Good place for a quite beer with a date and pizza

Clearly a neighborhood favorite. The pizza was thin crust rectangular, served on cafeteria trays. We loved our chicken pesto pizza. The pepperoni pizza needed a little more herbs in its sauce. The other entrees we saw were generous portions. Great old style decor and atmosphere with many locals who both knew each other and the staff. Definitely worth a visit... More
