Scalini is an Italian family run pizzeria restaurant in the heart of South Belfast & within walking distance of Queen's University & Botanic Gardens.

Since opening in October 2001 its popularity has grown to become one of Belfast's favourite Italian eateries.

A Mediterranean glow welcomes you on entering the doors of Scalini – not just in the warm ochre hue of the décor but also in the welcome from our friendly staff.

The word Scalini in Italian means 'steps' which becomes evident on the mini adventure to your table, 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're dining 'al fresco' under a Mediterranean sky, stars twinkling above your head, while on others you may feel transported to a traditional rustic Italian family mealtime, but no matter where your eyes turn they are treated to a different picturesque vista of Italian charm!

From the relaxed friendly atmosphere, to the fresh delicious food - this is the place to come to in Belfast for a real Italian experience!

Buon Appetito!

* internal lift access is available to all floors.
