“Best dining experience in all of Italy!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2014

During our 2-week stay in Italy, this was without a doubt the best dining experience we had. Not only was the food some of the best I have ever had in my lifetime, but the experience was incredible. Never in my life have I ever felt so welcome in a restaurant. Giacomo arranged a wonderful dining experience for everyone in my group and I can’t say enough positive things about this restaurant. The view was beautiful, the food was fresh and authentic and the atmosphere was unforgettable. If I travel back to Italy this will be my first stop. Thank you guys again for everything!

“Wonderful food and family!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014

Il Fanal.

Translated means "the field" and this is where most of your food will come from "their garden".

I don't think we have ever been made more welcome in a restaurant. It was as if we've made friends for life!

The food was really very special and everything tasted so fresh. The owner has worked 35 years in Italy's top restaurant and decided to set up his own family restaurant (i'm sure he would tell you the story along with drinking some of his home-made wines and apéritifs).

This restaurant has to be good because it can only live by recommendation, it would be impossible to find otherwise.

On TripAdvisor they rate this restaurant as ££££. I can assure you the prices of very low and this is incorrect.

“Food Heaven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2014

Another great holiday in S'Agata, near Sorrento, but this time had the added pleasure of an unforgettable dining experience at family-run Il Fienile in Torca. We feel a great affinity with this wonderful restaurant, having watched it being built over the years, so were excited to have the chance to enjoy what it had to offer. It didn't disappoint. We had lunch twice during our stay and were warmly greeted each time by Luigi, his wife Maria Rosa and son Giacomo. After settling us in with a complimentary aperitif, Giacomo then expertly served a selection of mouth-watering dishes made from the freshest of ingredients including salami and cheeses, handmade pasta, and chef-style prawns in a delicious seafood dressing. The restaurant's own-label wines as well as herbs and vegetables from its garden were excellent accompaniments to fabulous lunches rounded off by unbeatable desserts, including the best tiramisu and nougat parfait we have tasted, and a big bowl of cherries fresh from the garden. In between courses Luigi gave up his time to bring us up-to-date with the restaurant's progress.

We have eaten in many restaurants in several countries but the food at Il Fienile and the friendliness of the family make this a dining experience which is second to none. Not to be missed if you find yourself in the Massa Lubrense area. The Guarrancino family are wonderful hosts and Il Fienile combines the warmest of welcomes with first-class service and food heaven - all in a beautiful Mediterranean setting. What more could be asked for.

“Excellent restaurant for authentic Italian experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2014

My fiance and I wanted to get out of the touristy cities on the Amalfi coast and find a place that served really good local food -- and Il Fienile was just right for us! We were the only tourists in the restaurant. It was a Sunday and there were two families having celebrations for their daughters' First Communions - so the place was packed. But they made up a nice table for us in the garden area. The cheese ravioli were fantastic! Their red sauce tasted as good as my Italian grandmothers - which means it was the best EVER! (The ravioli would also be a big kid - pleaser). The house white wine was also excellent - despite it's name: "Crapolla." The homemade linguine with seafood was also very well executed with a generous amount of clams, and mussells. They also brought out a few complementary appetizers that were fun to try (fried polenta, croquettes). We liked it because the restaurant was located in a small town that had a very local vibe. The view was really nice, too, and we ended up taking over two hours to linger over our Sunday lunch. A great experience.

“The best experience we had in Italy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2014

We dined at Il Fienile twice while we were staying in Sant Agatha and it was without doubt the highlight of our stay in Italy. This lovely family are so hospitable and friendly and the food is delicious, made with fresh ingredients straight out of their vegetable garden. I would travel back to Italy just to visit them again. I can't recommend them highly enough.
