The best Italian in Ohio; or anywhere in US. I've been coming here since 1993 and have never been dissapointed. The veal marsala is perfect; the mushroom appetizer is a meal to share by the whole table. Lately I have only gone with Frank's suggestions of the night. Mama Scali is the perfect host (sorry Judy); and Frank now has more time to roam the tables. Prices are very acceptable. His Italian wine list is growing with high quality and value driven. If you can find the place (in some regards I hope you don't!); it is a trip you will make again, from any part of town.
This is Italian at the very best! Wonderful family owned restorante! Love it!.
My wife and I have been going there since they opened in 1993. We lived just down the street.Not as often now as we would like tho! Judy ,Frank and family are just super wonderful people and do everything they can to make your dining experience exceptional. The wait staff is excellent. The food is not "to die for" but "to Live For! " ..seriously! Never had a bad experience. Everything is made to order , fresh and very good. I personally love the bread, and my favorite pasta dishes are Bowtie with Salmon and the Peasant Tortellini..mmmm. My wife loves the Manicotti and the Ravioli Florentine.
Frank always has a few special dishes that are always wonderful.
One last thing...Mama's Zuppa is incredible and she is such a delight!
Make Reservations.. well.. first off i would like to say that Chris the waiter there is one fine man. He is gorgeous, and the best darn waiter i have ever had. But the food.. oh my gah is it amazing. The service there is very excpetional, and once when i went there i sat at the corner table and thought no one would pay attention to me.. nope. My Waitress made sure i was completly satisfied. I love this restuarant, and so should you.
Best A+++++++++++++++++++ Italian Anywhere!!. The owners of Scali go to great lengths to make you feel welcome and comfortable. They cook each order just right and the servers are all knowledgeable and courteous. If you ever get the chance to have the eggplant appetizer special, order two or three of them-it is the BEST thing in the world!!!
Editorial Review by Christy Buena. Family-friendly restaurant serves authentic Italian cuisine in elegant atmosphere and offers an extensive wine list and catering.
Scali's. Absolutely the best Italian food available! Excellent service. Remarkable, mouth-watering food. Highly recommended!!!!
YUMMMMYYY!. Scali's is our FAVORITE!! The service is always wonderful and the food is super delicious! Our only complaint is their location on the east side (but it is well worth our drive across town!).
warning: addictive italian food.. If I don't have the wedding soup at lunch at least once weekly I start to get the shakes. For truly great italian, this is the best in the city. Do yourself a favor and order the off menu specials on the weekends. Ask the owner Frank for a nice italian red wine that's not on the list. This restaurant is living proof that if you produce distinctly great food and service, the public will find you. Well worth a drive from any part of the city.
A diamond in the rough..
Hidden between suburban bars and lounges in a strip mall, you might have overlooked or avoided it even having lived in the area for a while. This is certainly a mistake.
I recently returned from a trip from Las Vegas, sadly my experience with service was poor. The service here was exceptional. As with many high-class restaurants, you did not even notice your beverage being refilled quite frequently.
Food is quality, ambience is excellent considering the environment. You could not improve the environment much more considering the location. Food was supurb. Before you start thinking about going to TGIF down the road, try Scalis.
Favoloso, molto bene!!!. Scali is hands down the best Italian restaurant in Columbus. Mama Scali along with the rest of her family make the entire visit enjoyable everytime! The homemade raviolo florentine is the best I've ever had. This is my husband's and my most favorite restaurant! I'd highly recommend Scali to anyone who loves good Italian food! Divertiti!!!
