Met family here, not in our area, but a good meeting place. Very easy, laid back and pleasant. Lots of smiling facing from workers in this small place. Food was very good, wish it was closer I'd come here weekly. Pasta fresh and well prepared, meatballs were a perfect blend of meats. Easy to like this place, easy prices, good... More

Our son took us here one evening and my wife and I both had the same thought. This place reminds us of a great little restaurant in Carmel, CA. The food and service was great. Very reasonable prices. This isn't a pizza parlor and it doesn't have the feel o a chain restaurant either. We split an ample portion of... More

Scalini's is a great neighborhood pizza place here in Dallas. The pizza is great and so is the price and atmosphere. Also great for pick-up, which we do all the time. Can recommend enough if you are in Dallas!

The food is good! The service is good. It is a small restaurant and worth dropping by for dinner if you are in the area.

We just moved into the area and someone had recommended Scalini's for delivery. We ate in the restaurant first and really loved it! The atmosphere was cozy and the wait staff was wonderful. The prices were very reasonable. We'll definitely be back. It would be a great place to hang out with friends. They had a long wine list and... More

The only reason this place doesn't get a "5" is that, for the last 3 times, portions of the dinner haven't come out together. By "haven't come out together" we mean there is a 10 minute delta in the time the first person gets their entree, and the last person is served. But if you can enjoy your wine, the... More

Scalini's is a funky, cool, neighborhood eatery in the Lakewood area of Dallas. Great food and atmosphere (although it can get a bit noisy). The pizzas are arguably the best in Dallas. Thin crust, fresh ingredients, served hot. So far, not a thing on the menu has disappointed me. There's a full bar and they also have a couple of... More

The bartender at Scalini's is so friendly. it is a great place to watch a game on Sunday, chat with the bartender. She makes you feel like family. Pizza is AWESOME as well. Only beer and wine, but the place is cozy.
