Having just returned from Italy on a National Coach holiday 8th/09/ - 22th/09, this was the best place we ate, it was very friendly, clean and most importantly they treated us like a member of their family. The food was beyond the usual Italian cuisine, it was presented well and it had pride stamped all over it. The chef excelled... More

Clean and spacious rooms. Restaurant is amazing, proper Italian food which was reasonably priced and delicious. Wine list was decent and good range of prices. Nothing was too much trouble and we were treated like family, delicious freshly baked cakes and pastries, strong Italian coffee and fresh fruit for breakfast every morning went down a treat. 1.5 km from Ravello...

My wife and I just spent 4 glorious days and nights at Il Pinguino, where the reception is warm and welcoming, the pizza is perfecto and the views are spectacular! Rather than book a pricey hotel, we opted for this slightly-off-the-beaten-path B&B in Scala, only minutes away from Ravello, offering a clean, comfortable room (with breakfast) at a truly reasonable...

Il Pinguino B&B is an unpretentious B&B with few rooms but delivers an authentic family-run lodging and dining experience. The view of Ravello from our room was stunning, the rooms are very comfortable, spacious and clean, with flat screen TVs. Delicious breakfast with fresly made croissants right out of the oven. The family owned in-premise restaurant is outstanding, Best food... More

I went here for dinner one evening while staying at another hotel in Scala. The food was the usual Italian fare. Nothing special but not bad either. House wine was cheap and drinkable. Service was good.

Stayed for 2 nights in June. Certainly a GPS is very handy, and nerves of steel when navigating through the narrow and curvy mountain streets. Positive: Excellent Friendly service from the hosts Even though we arrived very late... Hosts waited for us. we woke up next day late (1-2pm) and not expecting much of a breakfast - however the host... More

The owners make you feel like family and are very helpful in making your visit a relaxing one. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. The in-house restaurant serves incredibly delicious meals and fabulous desserts all made fresh... More

We went for lunch, their home made wine was good... their antipasti, they also served us deep fried food (very good not oily) and their specialty pasta fagoli al forno...... The deserts they are light and very good, they also do their own finocchio liqueur (fennel liqueur) one should try. I recommend eating here. Good Food, Good Service and Good... More

what a fantastic place to stay! The rooms are spotless, the view is breathtaking, and the staff make you feel like family. The owner even greeted me in person! It was very short stay for me, but in my experience the room was very sizable (as was the bed), lots of storage (if you happen to be travelling heavy), and... More

This place is a hidden gem. In Scala just a short walk from Ravello, the place is charming and spotless. The food in the restaurant is the finest and freshest, and people in the know in this area come far and wide for Walter's pizza. Don't miss Pinguino
