The best Italian food in Atlanta, Prompt friendly service – Scalinis has the best italian food. The salad is wonderful and the garlic rolls are the best. The prices are very reasonable and the atmosphere is great and very versatile. They have booths great for couples out for a romantic evening. Scalinis also has rooms great for company parties and family gatherings. I have eaten there many times, both on dates and with large groups. Every time the service and food has been great. I higly recommend scalinis to anyone.
Delicious Italian food next to Best Buy – I've often came to this restaurant, garlic bread is mmmmm good. The service is prompt and the food is great, only thing is pasta... not freshly cooked, it's very soggy... If you can, try all the deserts it's delicious.
Best Italian Food Outside of NYC – Scalini's reminds me of the Italian restaurants in Little Italy, New York. It's a bold statement considering that Little Italy has some of the best restaurants in the country but Scalini's definitely compares. The food is great. I have always been seated quickly - even on a Friday and Saturday night. The staff is great.
Best Italian in ATL!! – This place makes the Olive Garden seem like the Olive PIT! GARLIC ROLLS are fantastic!!! Food is wonderful....I read other complaints on the Garlic....If you don't like Garlic, first, don't eat real italian food. Go to Pizza Hut!!! THIS IS GREAT! Service Good.
Italian the way you want it – Scallini's is one of the few homestyle Italian places left. Their garlic rolls are amazing and the main dishes are affordable and fulfilling. If there is a wait, you will still get seated pretty quickly. If you are an eggplant fan, it is simply divine.
A little feel of Italy – Great food, great desserts! One of the few authentic Italian places left. Has a romantic ambiance but kid friendly too. The garlic rolls are wonderful but stay away if you are not a garlic fan. Great food for a great price!
My favorite little Italian joint. – I recently moved to the West side of town and was pleased to find an authentic Italian place. The portions are incredible. Salad, garlic rolls with TONS of garlic and an entree that feeds me for two meals. If garlic isn't you're thing, make sure to mention it to your server as noted in the other reviews. It's a bit too family-friendly for my taste, so request a booth for a little privacy. It's worth the wait. The service hasn't been consistent, but I find that's pretty much how most ATL restaurants are run. Definitely check it out if you're looking for something different in the area.
OK if you're in the area – I have been here several times and have had different experiences. The food is usually pretty good and the portions are large. I'm a fan of the dinner rolls since I love garlic. The service is ok. They seen to have an issue with removing empty drink glasses. Everytime I have gone lately the servers let the glasses pile up on the table. If you're looking for something better than the Olive Garden this is the place for you.
Not bad for the money – I had Chicken Marsala and fettucine alfredo. Both were pretty good. Portion sizes are very good. My companions had salad and lasagna and really enjoyed it. The bread is good, although there was a bit too much garlic on the bread for my taste. If you are not a big lover of garlic, ask them to go easy on the garlic. This place offers good value for the money.
Is Age Showing for Scalini's – We have been patronizing the Scalini's Italian Restaurant since it opened many years ago. As much as we think it is better than Olive Garden across the street (on Cobb Parkway) our latest visit was a disappointment.
The food was bland and the portions were small....and the prices have gone up alomst $2.00 per entree since we last visited. We had to ask several times for beverage ice or refill....including water.
However, the most disturbing element of our visit was the server not returning with change from our cash payment of the checque. Is this standard practice now? Even though we left a tip for the server, we are not pleased that it was assumed that any change under a $1.00 was theirs to keep.
We think that this establishment is holding on, but it is not as good as we remember.
