    A fantastic restaurant. Delightful owner and staff. Who really knows how to work his tables. Food was excellent so much so we went back for a second night whilst on vacation.

    I really liked the setting, layout and feel (although it was possibly a little noisy). The pasta was lovely. My only qualifier was that I ordered the gnochetti special but got the gnochetti on the menu. I can't recall who was to blame on this. The salad was nice, but the dressing was a little salty. The wine was excellent at $12/ glass.

    Excellent, authentic Italian restaurant. Quality meals, excellent service. Arancini are excellent as are all of the pastas. Good wines without the big price tag.

    Second time round was a bit disappointing, first dish came out luke warm and the ravioli were over cooked. Neverthe less will go back to try other dishes.

    Food is brilliant but a bit noisy. Maybe because of the Christmas lunch.

    Wonderful Warm Welcome. Pentolina meaning Little saucepan in Italian. was packed at 8:45 pm so I would recommend making a reservation. All the pasta is made on site. Whatever you choose you would not be disappointed. I had the squid ink pasta (something you do not find in other Italian restaurants) with clams and cuttlefish and a green wild salad. The wine list is also very interesting and Pentolina make cocktails and mock tails. I have been raving about this restaurant since coming and will definitely be back as soon as I can. Watch out for their special events.

    Love good Italian food and what we got was great Italian food. The pasta had great texture and the sauce was flavoursome. The entrees were nice morsels and presented really well. We shared a dessert which was delicious. It was a blood orange creme brûlée with coffee ice cream. Would highly recommend this restaurant.

    Beautiful fresh pasta and the flavours shone through. Wish there was just a tad bit more in the serving!

    The place is known for its pasta and the gnocchi is excellent - the pieces melt in the mouth. At $30.00 it might seem expensive but I thought it worth it. The wines are largely Italian and start at $12.00 a glass. There were a couple of Australian while choices at that price, too. The service was excellent

    We selected the shared meal and were very impressed! It included items from the specials board and every selection was beautifully presented and tasted amazing. The courses were well spaced out with the service attentive without interrupting our evening. Was advised the menu is changing with the season shortly and already plan to go back and sample from the spring/summer menu

    Food portions were small compared to other similar priced restaurants (same or better service) in the city. Customising food requirements was not easy. Limited flexibility on the menu.

    Great pasta, however the service was a little abrupt.
