I am a vegan and it is not always easy in some areas to get vegan meals. Joe Lam at Scalinis went out of his way to make me a delicious vegan three course meal during my visit there. Scalinis quality is second to none. .

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.
