Nice patio area plus indoor dining. Family had the patio with umbrella covered tables. Chairs not too comfortable with thin pillow seats. Food was just average which surprised many of us as we heard this was a top notch place to dine when in this city. No attention to person with food allergies (me). Told server NO vegetables, only potatoes... More

I have waited a long time to go here and I felt a little let down. Two tables were severely complaining and that was not fun. Now...the food Great wine list, great escargots and marinated olives. The bread is great and the citrus fennel dressing is amazing! For our meals we had a veal special that was just ok and... More

We are locals and have eaten here many times -- and sometimes the food was very good and sometimes it was mediocre. I don't know why there is this inconsistency but it keep us from going back very often. In particular, the last time, the food was delivered cold - on an entree that was over $25. When asked, we...

We want back and forth on where to eat in St. Augustine. La Pentola was on the list and we chose lunch. It seems that many of the restaurants in the area have limited menus, but there was never an issue finding something. La Pentola does have a limited menu as well, but the food was delicious. We had the... More

A southern european restaurant with Mexican influence. Their carnitas (pulled pork shoulder) with pico de gallo and guacamole over seasoned black beans and rice was outstanding. Mexican chilis weren't missed at all. Wife had a pasta dish which was very good. THe chocolate pistachio torte desert was perfect. All the tables in the walled patio have umbrellas for very pleasant... More

We had a wonderful three course dinner en plein air at La Pentola in historic St. Augustine. My husband had a delicious salmon pasta with generous pieces of salmon. I had a variety of choices of vegetarian entrees, which is unusual for me at a gourmet restaurant! The restaurant is located in a quaint area of town walking distance from... More

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
