We often have after business dinner here. The atmosphere is casual, the staff is very friendly. Nice menu. GREAT garlic rolls. Most all entrees as pasta based. But you can get special dishes.

Food is good, atmosphere is ok but a little out dated. Portions are big the salad and Garlic breads are to die for & the main reason we come back.

This place is great; I cannot wait until I am in the area again so that I can eat at Scalini's. I went here with four colleagues. Service was prompt and attentive. The garlic rolls are the true star of the show. Be sure to eat the ones at the bottom of the bowl (soaks up all the oil). We... More

This restaurant in a strip mall has been there at least 40 years and has the best eggplant parmesan ever. The walls are covered in photos of babies born after their desperately overdue moms ate it the night before! Great old world atmosphere, basic pasta dishes and awesome seafood. REALLY great calamari. Never fails to please everyone I recommend try... More

Took my wife here for her birthday. She had the eggplant parmesan and I had the red snapper francese. We both thoroughly enjoyed our dinners, as well as the salad and garlic rolls. Excellent servers as well!

Found this gem in a strip mall while on our way down to Florida from Detroit. Had a great meal. I had a veal dish with a light lemon sauce which was terrific and my husband was very pleased with his combination platter. Tossed salad was nice and not overly dressed. We loved the rolls swimming in garlic butter, too.... More

coming from an Italian family I can be picky when it comes to Italian. This place has some excellent options - all 5 of is were very happy with our dinners. As other reviewers have said, the garlic rolls are a must have for the garlic lovers out there. Cannelloni is an excellent choice for dinner and the italian custard... More

My all time favorite restaurant starting with the garlic rolls fresh from the oven.......you can smell them outside the restaurant. The never ending salad. Now comes my favorite part!! Scalini's Rosatello Sauce!!! There is nothing like it on the planet! I usually order the Penne Pollo DeRosa....not on the menu anymore, but the cook never hesitates to cook it right... More
