It was our second visit to celebrate our anniversary. The atmosphere and food were both great. Pentolina is our favourite restaurant! 

We had shrimp carpaccio for starter, rabbit grill and pasta for main, tiramisu and coconut cream brulee for dessert. Dishes were beautifully presented and tasted great too. 

Everything was lovely. We were so happy to visit there again.

Taste the real Italian home made food in this nice and very cosy restaurant. Family run, everyone working there is extremely polite and professional, and the food is excellent! I suggest to book in advance as there are not too many tables and, given the quality, it is often fully booked. Highly recommended.

Small Italian restaurant. The menu is small but each dish seems to be amazing. I had the fish with spinach and potatoes, it was completely taste full. The desert was also amazing. I must say that the staff is friendly and the service warm. I recommend it!

This place is a unique gem. I am Italian, live in the area, and to me this is genuine high quality Italian home cuisine at its best. Ingredients are top notch. Appetizers and Pastas are fantastic. Seconds (meats and fish) still excellent, though appetizers and pastas just amazing. The place is small, it has a local atmosphere with loyal clients,... More

Good Italian, but small Italian. The menu seemed to be seasonal (which I think is a good thing) but was limited in choices. One vegetarian option, but you know - it was easy to ask the team to cook some pasta and tomato sauce, so at least, my wife and I had a variety. It's a nice romantic place, and... More

Excellent. I'd been here once before and that was very good and booked again a year later as a birthday meal hoping it would be as good... and it was! Excellent food, great cosy atmosphere, especially downstairs. Really interesting and unusual menu. Extensive wine list. Really great evening - 5 stars definitely.

What a pleasant discovery! Real italian food, a real italian chef , an excellent mâitre. Great food and a very well chosen wine list, with average price around GBP50, which is difficult to find. Worth - many- visits!

A nice little Italian restaurant that is not part of a chain. Delicious food, efficient service, and quite reasonable prices. Its decor and location are unpretentious. During the week there is a set menu for lunch which is good value with a good variety. Advance booking is recommended because the restaurant is often busy despite its relatively obscure location.

I had my 40th birthday party here (downstairs) on Saturday night. They could not have been more helpful or accommodating. The tables looked beautiful, the service was great, food delicious and they didn't hurry us out at all. Really was outstanding was just how much care and effort they put into the restaurant, and it pays off on every level.... More
