I had the chicken parmigiana with the blush sauce and gnocchi. This was so incredibly tasty. We also got the mussels, really yummy. Our server was very friendly and helpful with the menu options. Can’t wait to go again and try something else!

Food is delicious! The cheese steaks and porkette is amazing. My friends love the Italian subs as there go to

Excellent! I only had a lunch there, but will be back for dinner very soon. It was small but had indoor and outdoor seating and takes you back to the days when small restaurants run by families were the only thing. This was so much better than any chain. Wilmington is blessed with places like this.

Food is great! -just wish they weren’t so stingy with the rolls. Sometimes I get a roll or 1/2 of a roll (?) w/ my $17 & up entree & sometimes I don’t bc they have to “save some for the sandwiches”.

Love it love it love it. Is what you will be saying the whole way home. Don't get the butter cake. I promise you will be hooked.The Sunday gravy is a must try. Till next time.


This little place is wonderful. We stumbled upon it while on a day trip and took a chance to grab some lunch. The food was phenomenal, the owner and other staff super friendly. We were able to sit outside at one of the picnic tables and the owner catered to us out there. Overall a great experience.

Best sub I have ever eaten . Spoiled me for any subs anywhere else.


Scalessa’s is a small local Italian restaurant. The food was outstanding and Rosa our waitress was excellent in every way. Friendly, welcoming, reviewed each item on the menu. She made it an extremely memorable and fun night for us.

It is unfortunate that more stars cannot be given. Tonight made me realize that even small size restaurants can hang in with the big restaurants. Everything from start to finish was amazing. Gentlemen or ladies, if you want to surprise your better half with a great environment, great food and great staff; Scalessa's "My Way" Old School Italian Restaurant is the place too get to. I came with an appetite and everything that was put in front of me, did not disappoint. My date and love of my life is a picky eater; except for tonight! I felt as if I was stealing, because for the food that we got and what we paid for it, it was not fair. People, listen up; the food is out of this world. I would also like to thank Rose; our waitress. Rose is the standard of what you expect when you go out on the town. Rose was a pleasure and very professional at what she does. It is because of Rose and the staff that made our food, that I am sharing this with you. You do not have to take my word for it, go and see what all the fuss is. Thank you to the Scalessa team for allow me and my love to enjoy our night. We will definitely be back.


Fantastic meatball parm sub had 4 large meatballs (or maybe 2 whole meatballs in half). The provolone was sharp. The roll was soft and airy and it was all warm. Staff were friendly and helpful.
