La Pentola is our all time favourite restaurant in Pretoria. We love the good food at reasonable prices and the relaxed atmosphere. We had Father's day lunch and unfortunately we were a little disappointed. We loved the starters. Butternut soup was very good as was the lamb kidneys in fillo. The haloumi was a bit rubbery. For mains we chose Victory chicken which was an incredible tasty dish but the chicken was dry and overcooked but cooked well this will certainly be a great dish.We also had Sole with a lemon butter sauce. The fish tasted like water and was not at all up to standard. The brandy and date tart was out of this world and so was the rest of our desserts. Maybe the staff is not used to work on Sundays and the food was pre- prepared but it was not up to La Pentola standards.
