Scalini's Italian Restaurant in Jesmond has been established for over 10 years. Best known for delicious Italian classics and alfresco dining, you can eat and drink while watching the world go by under the heated outdoor terraces. Ask the staff the best wine to pair with your lunch or dinner as they are well trained and knowledgeable on which wines to best complement your food preference. Choose from classics such as Wild mushroom and asparagus risotto verdure, Lamb ravioli agnello with rosemary and onion cream sauce or share antipasti and bruschetta sharing platters for a more social experience. Daily specials are available and the children's menu offers freshly made pasta or the kids can create their own pizza from scratch. You can pre-order your lunch and Scalini's will have it ready and waiting for you and for real convenience there is also a taxi rank outside so you can go from door to door with as little fuss as possible. Scalini's also has a sister restaurant in Gosforth
this restaurant is THE worst place to eat in Jesmond. In fact, a sandwich from Tesco near by is better option then anything in there! Food comes in late, is over cooked, nothing on a menu is gluten free (so a great news for coeliacs) and overpriced! Don't go there, unless you can spend 100 pounds on wine to stop your taste buds working!
I have now been to the restaurant a few times as i am visiting people in hospital in the area, the food and the service have been first class every time. We went on Saturday night and at 8.30 expected not to get a table but they managed to fit us in. Great atmosphere and the staff are all very pleasant. Would recommend and i am sure we will be back soon.
Not what i expected really gone downhill!
I was in Newcastle for just one night and ate at Scalinis with a mate. If I didn't live 250 miles away I would be eating there every week! Excellent in every respect.
We had our wedding reception here and our guests said it was the best wedding meal they'd had! Service was fab and we were made to feel very welcome/ special. Well worth a visit.
i enjoyed this restaurant very much
nice restaurant good food very clean will be back
Another moderately good restaurant. Worth booking a table on busy nights though. Does a good Sunday lunch too.
Great Service, inexpensive Italian food in top atmosphere - highly recommended
