Will definitely go back your Scali. I was just in Italy last fall, and this is the closest to the great food and ambiance I found theresults. I found it to be friendly, authentic, and so delicious. The wine was super, and the staff knowledgeable and welcoming. Wish I had tried Scali sooner.

This little gem is a wonderful Italian joint with a great staff and the most delicious food. Call for reservations on weekend nights, they are packed with substantial wait times.

This is one of the best small town places you can find!! It is family-owned and has a strong following of loyal patrons. Excellent food, superb wine list and weekly specials. The owners are always there to greet you.

We were surprised first at the size of the restaurant because outside was so nondescript. Inside was another world! I enjoyed the Gnocchi on the Dinner Special. So creamy and rich, it was wonderful. Others at the table enjoyed the Manicotti and Chicken Marsalla, Which was said to be the best ever eaten by a true Italian! We finished off... More

My husband and I have traveled the world and our favorite restaurant is Scali's. The food is always good, the owners, Judy and Frank, are friendly, and the featured wine is great. In 25 years we have never had a bad meal. Whenever we eat there we are happy, happy, happy.

We visited this restaurant after a trip to Italy and were delighted. The specialties were fantastic and atmosphere great. I enjoyed the home made lasagna -salad-bread included -very nice wine selection We enjoyed this Italian cuisine as much as the authentic.

Best Italian restaurant! Doesn't look like much hidden in the strip mall however once inside the wonderful atmosphere and delicious food will have you blown away. Reservations unless you are outside when they open.
