“Overambitious”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2012

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 of their plates.

“The best northern Italian you'll find”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2012

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, with cafe tables outside and an elegant dining room inside. It's a welcome change from its high-volume competition.

“Good pasta place.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2012

It used to be a classic when they were in Aguada, still good for eating nice pasta, place is nice, in front of Francis (another good choice)

“Tradition and innovation!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2012

I've been coming to Da Pentella since 1996, and have always been a fun of it's cuisine by its capacity to serve fine traditional dishes as well as to come up with new ideas. I'll keep on coming back. This is where chose to spend my last evening in Montevideo, and have a blast with local meet. I was definitely not disappointed.
