Good menu with reasonable prices. Restaurant just out of Apia town but not far! We had a group booking celebrating a special birthday. Staff were friendly and attentive. Food was delicious, great restaurant!

Wow do yourself a massive favour and order the 'Pizette' we are dining here again before we go home to order this again and try something else from the menu we enjoyed the food that much. This restaurant is amazing.

Delicious meals . Chef and owner uses local produce and grows a lot of the vegetables that are used. Lovely fusion of Italian / Samoan flavours . Have vegetarian options too ! Would definitely recommend going here.

With Scalini's it is always a highlight.

Very nice Italian food in nice AC surroundings. Very good desserts, a little on the pricey side but for the quality of the food well worth while at least once while you are in Apia.

Visited Scalinis during our recent holiday. The food was just awesome. Great quality, super tasty and large serves. The menu is delicious Italian food and some dishes even have a Samoan influence. The wine list is also very good. This restaurant should be on your list of places to eat with in Samoa!!!!

If your looking for a great place to eat make your way to Scalinis! Look, its food you would find in any city. Which i will say was a surprise. I didn't expect the quality to be so high, I was pleasantly surprised. There is also a very creative fusion of samoan food in the menu.

Great service and best tuna. Seared and served! Nice glass of wine to go with it. We enjoyed the nice atmosphere and if only the weather had been better we could have sat in the garden. Good menu - I could have happily eaten there several times.
