I have never been before and honestly I am not a huge fan of restaurant red sauce. The food was delicious and very inexpensive! Why go to the Olive Garden across the street ?? Scalinis is so much better!!!

I was excited to try this restaurant, but I felt it didn't really live up to the hype I've been hearing. The salad was good. The garlic rolls were ok. The service was good. My favorite dish at any Italian restaurant is always fettuccine alfredo. I ordered it and was disappointed. The noodles were dry with just a small amount... More

First time visiting Scalini's. Moved here from Ohio. The food is super delicious. The family style salad is so good. The garlic rolls are amazing...I could just have eaten salad and bread. Our meal was perfect and our server was awesome! Great recommendations.

This place is very similar to Provino's Italian. They are likely in the same family but I'm not certain. On your birthday, show your license or ID for a free meal up to a certain dollar amount. We typically go to Scalini's and/or Provino's for this reason. The salad comes out full of extras and plenty of it! The garlic... More

The restaurant is above average. Very family friendly. Big portions. Food is good. Friendly service. It's what makes a neighborhood favorite. I'd rather go here than Olive Garden or other big box restaurants. It's not refined. But prices reflect that. So it's a thumbs up

Everything about this restaurant was average. The wait staff is courteous but not professional. The wine list is a joke. The food was average in every way. Nothing stands out and I probably would not make the drive back.

Visiting from out of town so I had no preconceived notion of this restaurant's claim to fame. The service was rapid, efficient, and friendly so much so that I was surprised when my server apologized for the delay in arriving at my table (I had only been seated for less than 90 seconds). I immediately placed my order for the... More

Scalini's has been a metro-Atlanta staple for decades. We were in town visiting family and had to go back. The food was as good as we remembered. The table shared the delicious artichoke appetizer. The garlic rolls and homemade meatballs are a real problem...because you will crave these things in the middle of the night when you are hundreds of... More

This is a great family style Italian restaurant. No pretense. Excellent food and friendly service. My personal favorite is the cioppino. It has lots of seafood in a delicious sauce. Salad is served family style and the garlic rolls are wonderful. My only disappointment is they do not offer expresso.
