A lovely family run restaurant in Scala just a mile or two from Ravello. The food was great, the service is kind and relaxed. I do recommend it.

Very good food. Large portions, Focaccia bread with tomatoes out of this world :))) The prices are very fair and the service is excellent. A very comfortable place to eat and to relax with friends and family.

We ate here as part of an Amalfi coast tour as the option was either to eat, or to sit and watch everyone else eat. Probably not a true reflection of the food that would be served if you actually dined here. One of the...More
