Iconic London restaurant Scalini has launched in Bahrain, offering diners the essence of Italian summers.

After successful international expansions in Dubai, Doha, Cannes, Istanbul and, most recently, Egypt’s North Coast, Scalini has opened in Bahrain, in association with Sevens Holding, the fastest growing luxury hospitality company in the GCC region. The restaurant is located at the five-star, Royal Saray Resort in Seef District.

Established in London in 1988, Scalini has more than 30 years of history and is known for its tradition, quality and culinary heritage. Mediterranean-inspired décor in shades of blue mirrors the seas around the Italian coastline, whilst warm citrus yellow and lush greens evoke the mood of a stylish Amalfi Coast trattoria.

Restaurant Manager, Fabrizio Greco said: “We put our dreams and visions of the perfect Scalini into this wonderful location. The people in Bahrain and Saudi love to dine out, and with many international F&B (food and beverage) brands now successfully opening here, we can clearly see that the country presents the ideal location and opportunity for Scalini’s expansion.

“Our clientele is extremely discerning and detail-oriented. From the moment they enter the restaurant, their expectations of the dining experience are very high, which is testament to Scalini’s impeccable brand reputation. This is a very good motivator for us, ensuring we are always striving for perfection and the highest of standards of food, service and atmosphere.”

Scalini offers lovingly prepared, traditional Italian cuisine packed with flavour, served in a relaxed, welcoming environment, complemented by a bar menu that pays homage to Mediterranean flavours. Signature dishes such as Tagliolini Al Tartufo Nero, Tagliolini pasta with parmesan cheese and shaved black truffle, served in an exquisite grana padano wheel, followed by Scalini’s famous Bombolini Ala Nutela, with refreshing mocktails, offer the perfect menu choice for balmy summer nights.

With a contemporary mix of colourful and playful artwork, Scalini Bahrain delivers a southern Italian summertime vibe; the perfect destination for sophisticated Italian aperitivos and an exquisite fine-dining experience in the heart of Bahrain. Scalini Bahrain is open from 6pm to 12am on weekdays and 6pm to 1am on weekends. Lunch is available on Fridays and Saturdays from 12.30pm to 4pm. ✤
