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

Went as a family of 4, two children under 12. Great food, all of us loved it. The restaurant was full of couples being Valentines but despite this we had a good evening

We didn't know very much about this restaurant at all before going so it was such a lovely surprise. The food is easily amongst the best I've had in several years in London, the wine was perfect and not overpriced, and the service was ideal (you were made to feel at home but left to enjoy food and conversation undisturbed)....

We live in Brook Green and visit Pentolina frequently, 5-10 times a year. It has the warmth of a casual friendly dining place but refined, authentic Italian cuisine and attention to detail. Including a well curated wine list, reasonably priced. Heidi and Michele pour the hearts and passion into this restaurant and it shows. Their positivity filters down to all... More

Have eaten here many times and it is consistently good. Authentic Italian cuisine. Since Snows closed down this, in my opinion, is the best restaurant in this area.

Ambience and staff were great. Food was absolutely delicious though portion size a tad small. We stayed and talked for ages and there was no pressure to eat or drink more. Would go again.

This restaurant serves absolutely delicious food! We arrived on a Wednesday evening to a packed restaurant with a wonderfully warm, welcoming atmosphere. The wine list is great and the cuttlefish tagliatelle is the best pasta I have had in a long time. New favourit

Pentolina run by its Italian owner chef is consistently authentic and good value for money. There are few tables so booking is a must. The lunch menu for a fixed price allows you to choose between three mains, basically pasta, and rather more options of starters. House wine while not cheap displays the quality of an insider who knows how... More

I booked the restaurant after researching eateries around Olympia Kensington. Pentolina had great reviews and was only a short distance from Olympia. We were given a very warm welcome on our arrival, seated quickly and the staff were very attentive. There were nine of us but the staff were quick and efficient with our orders and the food was amazing... More

London offers big list of Italian restaurants but.... my god .... Pentolina is a real hidden gem discovered thanks friends moved to the area. Just after trying their olive oil with bread you realise that the quality of ingredients makes such difference. Every single dish was just exelent and I can't wait to eat there again.
