    Been going here for over 5 years. True locals place. Everything on the menu is Very good, pizza, steak, pasta, fish. Seafood soup is my favourite along with the fresh snapper on top of lemon risotto. Will continue going here for many years to come.

    Not easy to find good Italian in our opinion, Scalinis is EXCELLENT. Nice to have a family restaurant or fine dining atmosphere as opposed to a bar or pub setting.

    We are locals and love Scalinis, we went on New Years Eve and were not disappointed. Great food, good service. Michael checks everything is okay and the food was good. Love the steak here it is the best ever.
