We stopped here on the advice of our guide when we were on a tour round the Almalfi Coast. We went with another English couple and an Italian couple. The restaurant is situated on the outskirts of Ravello in the mountains. We all sat round a large table and the staff brought out water and a couple of carafes of... More

We stayed in Scala last month and found this fabulous restaurant right at the start of our holiday, having had our first lunch of the most delicious wood fired pizza, which is the best I've ever tasted, we were back that evening for dinner which was superb! after that we took every opportunity to dine there. The family that run... More

A lovely restaurant off the main road. The staff were very helpful and great with food allergies. English speaking which was also a bonus.

This was close to our accommodation in Scala so it became a bit of a favorite. Great value takeaway pizzas and a lovely outdoor area for dining. No great surprises on the menu but great value and tasty food

Loved this place. Went several times whilst in Scala as very good food, simple menu, nice people and very reasonable prices. They leave limoncello and a fennel version (delicious) on your table for you to help yourselves with coffee - nice touch. Loved the mussels in particular - very simple but delicious. Would thoroughly recommend.

We dined in Il Pinguino for dinner. It is a local restaurant with a modern style and a fine food. The pizzas we ate were delicious. Also the first course were perfect - cannelloni, mussels and salads. A very peaceful atmosphere in the inner terrace since the restaurant is located up in the mountain and far from touristic places. A... More

The restaurant is tucked away in the hills above Scala. I ordered pasta with Bolognese sauce even though it wasn't on the menu they made it anyway, it's was perfect. It's quiet and an escape from the crowds of Ravello. Prices are reasonable too.

Thank Mark A
