It is really hard to get noticed by waiters, there are only 3 for 20 tables. The food is good, although I might not return again.

Great food - from appetizers, to entrees and even the freshly baked bread is good. The service is excellent, the environment is nice for a formal dinner. It is on the high end but it's worth the price.

We were brand new to Montevideo and in search of something other than a traditional parilla. We came upon this gem of Italian restaurant not far from our hotel. It is a classic, small, quiet, romantic, neighborhood Italian restaurant. But beyond the ambiance, the food was truly spectacular. They also have an extensive and very reasonably priced wine list with... More

This is not a cheap everyday pizza joint, but if you like well prepared pastas, this is the place for you. My favourate is the ravioli - excellent!

Having heard that Da Pentella was among best italian restaurants in Montevideo we were quite disappointed with our experience. Service was very friendly and a little informal what created a nice atmosphere but food was over engineered, it didn't taste as good and it was not warm enough. It took us a couple of days to get over the heaviness... More

There are plenty of more-famous high-end, northern Italian restaurants in Montevideo, but this is the one I keep coming back to. It's hidden away on a quiet side street in Punta Carretas, but well worth the effort to find. The food has been excellent every time we've gone there. But what really sets it apart is the cozy, intimate setting,... More
