We stayed at Tranchina 4 nights two couples. The rooms, the owner Marisin -who is a wonderful host- and specially the food were amazing. Furthermore Scopello is a very calmed and small village, perfect for a relaxed time in the evening after touring around. We will definitively come back.

What an amazing place... I found a bit hard to write this review, because I have many things to say about, well shall I begin! The Pensione, is situated in the centre of Scopello, and has all the natural area area around of the East Coast if Sicily. Talking about rooms, clean, simple and tradizionals, just like the old sicilian... More

A lovely proprietor runs a tight ship at this simple but potentially wonderful place. There were two surprises, however: the required half-pension dinner is inside, not on a terrace, and there is no view at all. Why come to Sicily in the hot summer season, to eat indoors, when there are many excellent outdoor options in town, several with fantastic... More

For first time traveler, Scopello is a tiny tiny hamlet. The only thing going on is tourism. There is a small bakery, many many tourist traps and ristorantes. ATM is available of course in case you ran out of cash. We stayed here for one night. You can pay 5E to park in a parking lot (don't ), you can... More

The perfect place to stay in Scopello, if not all of Amalfi. Marisin and her team are amazing. Breakfast and dinner here every day was full of amazing, fresh and local produce. You don't need to go anywhere else! Dinner each night started with a drink out on the street, mingling with the other guests. It felt like a local... More

Other reviews capture Pensione Tranchina's delicious food, owner Marisin's warm hospitality, and Scopello's charm completely. This is the type of place you will want to return to time and time again. I was fortunate enough to make a last-minute reservation for the guesthouse, which is a delightful ground-level room on the Pensione's inner patio. Marisin had the room ready early... More

Well, where to start? The experience of having half board at Marisin's gorgeous pensione in the little hamlet of Scopello has just got to be had. We loved her cooking and enjoyed everything that she put in front of us. We are discerning foodies and that is not a regular occurrence! Our rooms were fabulous, beautifully decorated and spotless. The... More

Pensione Tranchina's host is extremely friendly and welcoming, and her English is perfect. She provided taxi service for us from the Castellamare train station in advance; got information on buses for us, in addition to information on hiking the Riservo, the beaches, etc. and provides beach towels. The rooms are tastefully decorated with modern features. Our room on the top... More

This is the place to go if you are a foodie and like to eat tradional sicilian food. The pension run by Marisin and her family is a great place for foodlovers, who love the extra personal attention. The pension has 10 rooms, that are simple and clean. But that's not the reason you want to go. That should be... More

Decided to stop here for exploring Erice and Zingaro Reserve before heading to Palermo. Marisin is an interesting and delightful hostess! The town is adorable.......parking easy.......our room just grand. We had room 5 with a terrace and sea view. It was 85 euros/per nite. The first night we made a "picnic" of leftover snacks....altho the dining room looked charming and... More
