I visited Scalini on March 8th, 2017 at 8:20 to celebrate Women’s day with my family. After we were seated, we waited for about 15-20 minutes for the waiter to take our order. Meanwhile, foreign couples arrived to the restaurant, and their order was taken immediately. We did not want to demonstrate our dissatisfaction right away, therefore we called the... More

Good food and a friendly bar. Smoking throughout however not very nice if you dont smoke. Excellent pool table which is free in the back which offers a good place to spend some time and have a few beers

This place is an Italian Island in Baku. I found food to be prepared in a proper manner but the italian climate is excellent. A very good place to meet Italians and Azerbaijans.

The restaurant is high level starting from the decor style of the inside. The menu is easy to read and understand, is complete and various. Food are good quality. We tasted "penne al cartoccio con pesce", I was initially skeptic because it's hard to cook in "cartoccio" without overcooking the pasta itself, but it was delicious. My colleague had filet... More

There are two Scalini restaurants in Baku, the original up close to the Hyatt Regency and the new one at Port Baku. Both are excellent, great service, great menu, great wine lists. The older restaurant is smaller, more intimate but that takes nothing away from the newer one. If you like Italian, you'll love Scalini.

Went in after some Christmas shopping. Had glass of fresh orange, tea, and Scalini spaghetti. Service was welcoming, restaurant very comfortable, and food nice. Not a huge portion but all I wanted, at a good reasonable price for a top end restaurant.

The best Italian restaurant in Baku. Simply the best. Elio, the manager is the nicest person I've met in my life. Extremely polite, friendly, caring and easygoing person. Food? What one can say? It is just perfect. Tastes differ of course, but it is worth to try.
