Description: Scalini is an Italian family run pizzeria restaurant in the heart of South Belfast & within walking distance of Queen's University & Botanic Gardens. Since opening in October 2001 its popularity has grown to become one of Belfast's favourite Italian eateries. A Mediterranean glow welcomes you on entering the doors of Scalini - not just in the warm ochre hue of the décor but also in the welcome from our friendly staff.

Extensive menu. Something for everyone. Very reasonable prices. Good service by attentive staff. Good food well presented. Busy spot. Nice ambiance and decor. Would highly recommend.

Looking forward very much to my next visit to Scalini, which will be in mid August. The food is great, as is the service and atmosphere. Love it!

Went here on a short business trip and was really impressed with the food. Starters were plentiful as were the mains. Atmosphere and staff really good too. Only downside is that there's no draft beer.

Have been going to this restaurant for many years me and partner and some friends where there on Sunday afternoon for food. We walked it to not the warmest of welcome and the place was like a boiler house clearly aircon not working. I had a starter and main and dessert and drinks. To start with the beers where cold when served the first time, I then ordered two more and felt them on arrival and where still warm did get offer a glass of ice (Ice in beer is a no no).
Then food arrived I had chicken strips starter these where very bland and tasteless. Main course for everyone was not very good either. Dessert was chocolate fudge cake was very dry and the sauce was very thick like gravy and also for the profiteroles where very poor also. To be honest this would put me off going back at lunch times. I have been to this restaurant about 50 times in my life and this is the second time recently I have been let down it is making me think twice about returning.

Catching up with some old friends, we just decided to meet up here again. Couldn't fault it....can be a bit of a wait for a table.....but it's worth it. One of my all-time favourites!!
