Can’t beat the atmosphere or the service, and the food is great. Try the salmon or the osobuco. Ask for a table on the terrace.

Great Sunday lunch at Pimento. Five-star service, delicious food, fresh juices, and beautiful setting. My picky 14-year-old daughter ordered the Lasagna Bolognese and mopped the plate. The complementary weekend course, for us the onion cream soup, was a special treat. Would definitely return.More
