Nice food, we shared a lamb plate and it was tasty and tender. Staff were nice. Would have liked some selections of pastas that were not tomato based.

Wandered up the hill to this restaurant. I asked for a meal without dairy. Of course absolutely everything on the menu had some sort of dairy. The manager asked me what I ate. I said, "Fish and chicken". He asked me how I would feel...More

The restaurant deserves five stars because the food was excellent and the service was just great! The waiters were attentive and made the experience of dining out in Apia worth it.

A nice fine dining restaurant which we both enjoyed. We had the tuna sashimi and the pork belly which we could not fault. Service was lovely too. It gets very busy so a booking I would recommend.

Had a nice dinner with friends at Scalinis. While the menu is rather limited it is a indication they do well with what they offer. The atmosphere is nice, quiet, and the service was spot-on. All the staff are friendy, polite, and professional.

Sorry I cannot answer this question, when we were dining there they did in fact have a long table in the middle of the restaurant for a special occasion, they may well be able to help you. I suggest you contact Scalini's... More
