Stopped in on our way to hotel nearby and had a fantastic lunch. Mainly Italians and the odd bus tour but no surprise given how close to Ravello.

We had a delicious caprese salad to start - each was big enough for two people! The mozzarella was seriously fresh and creamy.

Then I had a 600g rib eye steak cooked perfectly on the wood coals and my wife had a huge pork chop - just about managed to finish. Nice small menu of well crafted food and the staff were very friendly and attentive. Would recommend for the food and great value

Our tour group stopped at Il Pinguino for lunch on our way to Ravello. We were seated at tables outside, in the shade, and were treated to a simple meal of a mixed salad followed by a tasty dish of pasta, with or without gnocchi. This was washed down with local red or white wine, and water. We finished with a simple dessert. The food was delicious, the price very reasonable (€15) and the restaurant was very clean. Highly recommended.

Went for lunch and had Pizza. Excellent service and food, would definitely return. The local wine recommended by our waiter was perfect, and all at a very reasonable price. This is what other restaurants should aspire to.
This was fine dining at very reasonable prices, in a very smart restaurant.

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.
