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.

Here from California visiting friends. One friend wanted to go to Cracker Barrel but I prefer local eateries. Went for the linguini and clams; unfortunately, they were out since we arrived late. Had the homemade ravioli instead. Lovely! Friends had lasagne and fettucini alfredo with chicken. Excellent tiramisu. Everyone was pleased with the meal. I would definitely recommend.

My wife loves this place. I, unfortunately, was disappointed. I love family restaurants though and will definitely give it another shot. Hopefully my first experience was wrong.

We were late getting to town last night and the last thing I wanted was chain food. Our Hotel had recommended Scali Ristorante. The place is in a nondescript strip mall about half a mile from the Fairfield Inn. It is at the very back that of the strip mall, but we found it, even in the dark. We were... More

Just spent a week in DC and ate at some wonderful places, but nothing touched Scali. The food was authentic and delicious. It's family owned and operated and you can tell! The staff is absolutely divine. They were so helpful about explaining their specials to us and answering all of our questions. We sat at the counter, which was great... More

Local Italian family-owned restaurant. The staff was helpful and friendly. The food was delicious. Especially the penne pasta and sausage. The sausage was a bit spicy, not sweet. The linguinis with clams and LOTS of clams. We had a great home-made tiramisu for dessert. Great find.

Thank Diane G
