This place is perfect! I ordered a chicken dish and it was beautiful! The price of the main meals ranges from $30Tala-$60Tala. The service was awesome too, the staff were very polite and quick! Would definitely recommend this place to everyone and anyone.

We had a great meal at Scalini's. Great welcome by manager. Had fun with him. The place was scrupulously clean and elegant. Menu choices were excellent and showed a fine understanding of food by the chef. Recommended

We stayed for 10 days in Samoa and hunter and asked around for different restaurants, this has to be a least double the stars of any of others we had eaten in.

Food and drink variety are good. The service very prompt and felt a little uncomfortable at times. Atmosphere is nice and can be feel a little enclosed as you can start to hear other people's conversations clearly.. almost echoey. Lighting is very dimly lit so photography/selfies can be annoying to get right. Food was really good, esp. pizzette? was great!... More

This restaurant could hold its head up in many large cities, so to find it in Apia was a delightful surprise. The food was delicious but it is quite expensive, so more suited to special occasions.

Joe and Amanda continue to serve up winners! Thankyou for always looking after us and our blokes when we are in Samoa. The food is ALWAYS BEAUTIFUL and the banter and service is EXCELLENT. Lamb koftas with tomato and cous cous salad, hummus, mint yoghurt dressing & olives is my new favourite dish.

What a fantastic restaurant. Italian as the name suggests but with a Subtle Pacifica twist. I enjoyed a dish called a Trio of Tuna with tuna prepared in individual small dishes in different sauces. The tiramisu for desert was light and rich. The staff were very attentive. The drinks menu was very good. Decor was modern and stylish. A very... More
