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.

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.

I really rate this restaurant. The food is wonderfully authentic and the menu so original. I had lobster and pappardelle with oxtail rags - absolutely delicious. The staff are really friendly and it is an all round fantastic Italian experience.

One of the best Italian restaurant in London so far!!! I have been living in London since two years, I am Italian and I can honestly say that this is my favourite Italian restaurant in here! Staff is kind and prepared, kitchen is fast and organised, dishes fresh and portions are more than decent. Very recommended!

Most enjoyable meal in authentic feeling restaurant with every mouthful excellent! Staff helpful and attentive but sensed a bit of tension - just relax and smile a little more to make guests feel completely at ease. Overall we could not recommend the high quality of cooking and general feel of this charming place more highly. Thanks so Much.
