La Pentola is warm and delightful, with an eclectic décor. La Pentola specialises in International fine cuisine. Established in 1995, the first of it's kind, La Pentola's culinary roots are drawn from French, Italian and rich Mediterranean flavours, fused with the best local produce available.

The menu created by award winning Chef Patron, Shane Sauvage, boasts everything from starters, soups, salads, veal, poultry, seafood and meat dishes, also incorporating an inspiring, superior range of vegetarian fare.

To complete the meal a decadent range of in-house desserts reflect the mood and the season. Wines are selected from a Diners Club award-winning wine list. An interesting variety of cognacs accompany the cigars on which La Pentola prides itself.


The restaurant is divided into two entirely separate dining areas, non-smoking and smoking. The service is warm and hospitable, taking advantage of the natural earth tones of thatch and wood to create a neutral environment for business lunches, important functions, family and romantic dinners. La Pentola caters for functions, year end parties and corporate breakfasts, 21st's and Weddings. Please call for a personal consultation to design a menu for your individual requirements.
