Meal was good, although a bit pricey for the quality of food served. Server mentioned the list of specials, but no pricing was offered. I was quite surprised when I received the bill. Meals came with bread, but no butter or spread. I had never seen a restaurant of this caliber use paper table coverings. Came across to me as... More

You want a great dinner, good wine selection then make a reservation and have dinner there. Service by Anna was excellent. Dinner is not rushed or too slow, just right, The steak special and duck were delicious. This restaurant deserves another go as everything was great.

We arrived on a recent Sunday with reservations at our hotel but no special dinner plans. Foot traffic in the historic downtown area, where we were staying, was pretty heavy so we were really pleasantly surprised to be able to get a last minute reservation at La Pentola. It was also located right behind our hotel. We were shown to... More

We were a family of 8 adults on a Saturday night in busy St. Augustine, but we'd made a reservation well in advance. We were happy that the restaurant was very accommodating and gave us a space that allowed us to enjoy our conversation. Our server was very pleasant and did a nice job. Our dinners, however, were just average,... More

Right in downtown St. Augustine, La Pentola is within walking distance of the Casa Monica Hotel. The lunch menu is extensive and flavorful. Sitting outdoors is a plus although the interior of the restaurant is charming.

This restaurant has a very pretty courtyard which is perfect for a romantic dinner. The service and food are very good, and I particularly enjoyed the truffle pasta. This was actually our best dining experience during our three night visit. We will certainly return. Be sure to make a reservation as the courtyard tables were full at 8pm. midweek.

4 of us enjoyed a fabulous luncheon meal at La Pentola. We dined outdoors on their comfortable patio listening to some wonderful classical guitar music. The lunch menu is not only extensive but moderately priced. Our meals, both seafood and chicken were both delicious in presentation and taste and the portions were just right. Our server, Anna was attentive and... More

We had a wonderful Lunch. The Ahi Tuna and Bruchetta was superb. Natalie our server was very attentive and had a great sense of humor. The setting was in the courtyard and all the tables had umbrellas. It was perfect if you wanted to be outside but not in the direct sunlight. The menu selection was extensive and fit everypne's...
