Very poor service. Food was mediocre. I ordered a tuna sandwich and they brought me a tiny piece of tuna between two slices of French baguette. I have never seen such a small sandwich in my life. To add insult to injury they. tipped themselves by adding 19% to the bill.

Went there for lunch today. First thing that strikes is the courtyard setting - I imagine it would be a fantastic place for dinner. The food is excellent, especially the scallop risotto I had. Great little place.

After days of exploring the oldest city in the US, finding La Pentola was a bonus! From the moment we walked into the quaint couryard, we were greeted by the owner, who was gracious and professional. We chose to dine outside, under the ambiance of the lights and candles twinkling . We found the wine selection to be one of... More

La Pentola is one of the great restaurants to go to if one wants a great dinner, nice ambience and reasonable price. Jorge is the chef, and almost everything in the menu is good. We have been going to this restaurant for a long long time, and never have been disappointed. Susan (Jorge's wife) is the one who manages the... More

First time here even though we live in the area. We ate outside in the courtyard, nice and quiet and very romantic. I had a flounder special - lightly pecan crusted with a very light chardonnay cream sauce...it was wonderful! Hubby had the pasta marinara with blackened chicken which was perfectly spicy! The side salad with the meal was super... More

This was one of the highlights of our trip. My husband and I were desperate to find a quiet, romantic place to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Dressed for romance, we originally went to the Chianti Room behind Pizzalley which advertised romance. Wrong....it was definitely a pizza joint full of kids and noise. Not romantic at all. We asked the hostess... More
