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

Just my favorite Italian in London so far. Authentic Italian food. Fantastic pasta, cooked always 'al dente'. Excellent parma ham and mozzarella cheese. The fettuccine with rabbit ragú was good although I think it lacks some flavor. My favorite dish by far is the spaghetti & octopus, simply delicious. The tiramisu is great and also the coconut creme brûlée. Very... More

Perhaps I selected the wrong dishes as I was a little disappointed ...over cooked pasta totally swamped in kale pesto . To be fair the rest of my friends said their food was delicious . The staff were wonderful and very attentive . I will try it again and select differently from the menu

There are not many places in London where you can get a quality three course lunch for £22.50, which is what they offer at Pentolina, and the beauty is that it all tastes properly homemade and individually prepared. Excellent warm, crisp focaccia with oil and balsamic vinegar is brought out before the food, great mussels to start with a really... More

This was a personal recommendation and proved an excellent d one. This restaurant comes across as a family run Italian Restaurant. The food was superb,and even if the course had familiar names, it was clear that they had been individually designed. The staff could not have been more attentive.The wine flowed and yet the bill came to £62.00 a head... More
