We ate here on Saturday and Sunday nights in the middle of January. This is one of the few, if not only, game in town in Ravello and La Scala at this most out of season of times. The service is great, with fluent English spoken and lots of helpful suggestions provided. Bruschetta is provided by the hyper active pizza... More

Staying along the Amalfi in middle of January and you realise what low season means - not much is open. However, we were more than happy to dine at Il Pinguino twice. Lovely service, great menu, delicious food, with the best cheesecake I have ever had. The 'pizza-bruchettas' were also amazing. Can highly recommend this restaurant!

We travelled to Italy for a friends wedding and stayed at Il Pinguino as well as eating there every night. The accommodation is modern and very comfortable with good showers, wifi and all that you need. The restaurant is excellent, authentic Italian food some of the best pizza you will ever eat (so great for kids too)! My son pronounced... More

Had an absolutely lovely time at Il Pinguino, we ate here a couple times during our stay in Scala and would love to go back again. The staff were so welcoming and helpful, they really made our visit special. It won medals for the best pasta and pizza we have ever eaten, all freshly made and full of flavour. It... More

It was New Year's Day so I was a little skeptical of finding an open place for dinner in Scala but Il Pinguino filled the spot. I had driven by the B&B which I learned is quite reasonably priced but never considered there was a restaurant there until I learned of it on TripAdvisor. I arrived shortly before 8 PM,... More

A relaxed, family-run restaurant. Amazing food and lovely people. We ate here four times during our stay in Scala - couldn't get enough. Would highly recommend the food and the ambience!

Looking at photos of our trip to Amalfi in October brought back wonderful memories of the people, the place and the food. We visited Il Pinguino a few times in our stay and I really want to go back now. It is everything you want from an Italian restaurant. The food is cooked using fresh local ingredients and is so...

Delicious authentic Italian cuisine! We dined at several restaurants during our trip to Scala but genuinely non were better than here. You're made to feel at home and like you are part of the family! Truly brilliant.

Thanks so much to everyone at Il Pinguino for a wonder stay. The staff were friendly, welcoming, and luckily for us spoke perfect English. Scala is a great place from which to explore the Amalfitana Coast and the village itself was a delightful place to discover. We were there in October, at the time of the conker festival, and enjoyed... More

Everything our party tasted and ordered was delicious. You must try the lemon cheesecake - don't share - have a whole piece!
