“Really good, simple Italian food done well.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2014

I ate here whilst on business in the area - I needed a quick meal and had heard good things about the restaurant. I just had a pasta dish with a glass of red wine. The pasta was amazing - beautifully cooked and a piquant ragu with just the right amount of chilli heat. The restaurant is small but well run, and I haven't had as good a pasta dish for a long time. Highly recommended.

“Good quality and nice atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2014

Everything is pleasant even if actually i found the wine too expensive ( talking about wines that i know well)... Charging less drinking could make it a perfect spot!

“This restaurant is simply one of the best in town.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2014

Pentolina feels like home.
Not only the nice and cosy restaurant atmosphere, but also the hosts make this place unique.
The food is delicious, the quality of the food is simply incredible as well as the combinations made by the chef.

“Lovely, little local gem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2014

Good local restaurant with lovely and cutie decoration style with a good service. The foods were also lovely and well presented. We ordered 'peas with pan fried Sicilian King prawn soup' as starter, was so tasty with a mouthwatering smell of pan fried prawn! full of flavours!. I highly recommend to keep your tummy space for 'Ice Nougat Parfait with Chocolate sauce!', was unbelievable excellent.
