La Pentola is a fusion cuisine restaurant. Established in 1995, La Pentola’s culinary roots are drawn from French, Italian and rich Mediterranean flavours, fused with the best local produce available. No compromise is taken when using olive oil, real butter, fresh herbs and cream. All dishes are freshly prepared - no MSG or artificial flavouring is used in any of our cooking.
We have dedicated our lives to the dining experience and do our utmost to accommodate your needs. Especially when it comes to food preparation, everything is prepared from scratch, even if everyone arrives for dinner at the same time, we never compromise our standards.
