There is a marvelous view of the bay, but the food take the cake! The house specials are worth the money and your taste buds will dance to the tune of good taste and quality food. Will return for more!

We had a lovely evening meal at La Pentola, really enjoyed the food but very rich so don't over order! On the more expensive end but nice.

“Nice dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2013

We had once a dinner at La Pentola. The meal was tasting well, with lots of creamy creamy sauces. Has wonderful sea view. Service was fine, but some of the wait staff could be more mature. All in all is worth a try.
