With colourful, rustic charms, Scalini is a romantic dream, visualising a Tuscan villa, giving diners the impression they are actually there. Whether you are seated under the stars or up in Romeo and Juliet's balcony, Scalini offers many different scenes under just one roof.

With a superb selection of pizza, pasta and extensive grill dishes, the dream goes on. The overall dining experience is second to none, with a lively atmosphere, yet privacy for those seeking a romantic setting.

The word Scalini in Italian means 'steps' which becomes evident upon arrival, as the restaurant has been cleverly designed on multiple floor levels – each one with its own character. On one level you may feel as though you are dining 'al fresco' under a Mediterranean sky filled with stars twinkling above your head.

At Scalini larger parties of up to 65 people can be catered for in the upstairs party room, adding that special touch to any occasion.

The freshest of ingredients are used to create the most authentic Italian food which is served by friendly staff. Baby changing facilities are also available and colouring pages are supplied which can amuse kids from one to 101. Although Scalini is built on multi levels a lift is available for disabled access.

Group Bookings: Private dining facilities are also available upon request.
