A small hole in the wall, with great food. Lots of choices & very fresh. Love the pasta dishes. Looking forward to trying the pizza!

We went for dinner. We shared a large dinner salad which was big enough for two and pretty good with romaine, pimento olives, tomatoes, pepperoni, and cucumbers. Then we shared a pepperoni pizza that was large enough for two. It wasn't the best pizza I have ever had, but the reasonable prices elevate this restaurant to four stars for me.... More

A small intimate restaurant with great appeal from food to drinks and service. Excellent specials written on a charming blackboard. Standard menu with many choices. Excellent sauces, many kinds of pasta served with salad and garlic bread. They have a good choice of wines with the usual popular brands but also some surprises including Italian wines. By the glass, split... More

Three antiques-shoppers had drinks and a couple of fancy breads as a light bite in early mid-afternoon. Ate outside -- nice February day in the sun. Waitress very pleasant and willing to put up with our tiny bit of business (we were later than the lunch bunch). Food I saw looked very good.

Every time I step into this place I am transported to that scene in Lady & the Tramp where their noses touch slurping spaghetti- Really! I mean this in the best way: Casual laid back atmosphere, small wood tables placed cozy close, servers in jeans & black t shirts & ready smiles and an intoxicating smell from the kitchen that...

I had the pasta special, the family had two different pizzas and it was disappointing. Now, let me remind you, this place was recommended to us and the place was packed but our pizza was tasteless. The pasta dish was loaded with cream, the chicken looked and tasted like it was from a frozen, pre-packaged Gordon Food store. The service... More

Scalini's serves pizza and pasta, including ravioli. Nice sauces, generous portions. The takeout is prompt, but consider a dine-in meal. Service is friendly and attentive. It's a true Lakewood spot; stroll around the collectibles shop. Strike up a conversation. Great single diner spot.

My husband and I ordered a pizza for takeout and it was pretty good, so we decided to dine in one night and it was past 8 pm, it was super crowded and they offered us a table far in the back- the last table and closest to the wait staff's station. It was dark and dingy and there were... More

Small dining area in the front is best if you want to smell what's coming out of the oven. I had the Veal Parm and what made it stand out above others in the same price category ($13 for entree, small salad and bread) was the delicious sauce and the thickness of the veal. It wasn't the typical pounded down... More

Wonderful food, horrifying manger! I am a regular customer there and called last night to complain about a server being rude to me when I placed a pizza delivery order over the phone and also to make sure they got the order right since they have made so many mistakes for which I have overlooked time and time again. The... More
