Exactly as advertised: kosher, excellent family style restaurant - Italian - in Eilat. Super kid friendly and adult friendly too.

We ate at Il Pentolino twice. Breakfast and lunch. Both times service was a little slow but that's because they prepare fresh and very tasty food: the most authentic bagels I have found in Israel, fresh pasta, great salads and sauces. Perhaps the biggest minus is the location in the residential section of Eilat and not close to the hotels,... More

Place clean and excellent Italian food, careful no meat is served, everything with vegetables. Reasonable pricing and good wine. Friendly service as well.

This should have been a good Kosher Italian dairy restaurant. Sadly, every other time I've eaten here 'something' has been off: this time my so-called 'aldante' spaghetti was tasty but too tough to chew and the service spotty despite several servers present. I'll probably try again next year... but I really wish they'd clean up their act!

In the old city of Eilat it is frequented by locals. Very kind service and very nice pasta and pizza. Closed on Shabbat.

Situated half way up the main high street, Hatmarim Boulevard, on the right you will find Il Pentolino with it's green and red awnings. The kitchen and bar are clearly visible at all times so you can watch the chefs go about preparing and cooking meals. When it's not too hot the terrace makes a lovely place to eat and... More

This restaurant is not in the main tourist area but it is worth a visit. The staff were helpful and pleasant and the food was tasty. We shared a tuna salad which was fresh and very large, and we had a very refreshing fruit shake. Great value and a lovely visit

We were told that this place has good food and off the main hotel areas. Indeed, it is in a regular Eilat neighborhood and does lots of deliveries. The food was very good, service was pleasant, seemed like the waiters actually wanted to please their customers. Two soups (came with bagels) and two pasta dishes was enough for a family... More
