We always love visiting Carmen and Paola at Penisola. They treat us like royalty and the Veal Marsala is perfect. It's a great place for a good pizza before going to a show or the theatre too..

I go to Penisola every time I`m in Quesnel. The food is great, the portions huge and the service good. Favourite dishes: the Artichoke antipasto and the Fettuccine al Porto. Too bad it is not open for lunch too!

Found the reviews a little optimistic. My meal was a large portion and the fettuccine side was good however the veal was really strange. To me the place is lost in time. As a business traveler I could have done without this meal. I won't be back.

Highlight is Wednesday's Pasta Night when all the dishes are $9.95... the portions are so large you'll have to take half home for lunch the next day. Tasty food, friendly staff, and nice ambiance. Tuesday nights are great too ... appetizers are on special. The artichoke/pesto dip is our favourite. Whenever we are in Quesnel we always make a point... More
