Imagine your childhood, the smell of freshly mown grass, your mom calling for lunch.Laden before your eyes are carrots. Fresh from the farm, with a light sweet scent, and mom's special Sunday recipe. That's how it feels to dine at La pentola.It's an adventure for your senses where each bite feels like heaven. More...

Absolutely fantastic.We came for dinner around 19:00. The ambience was perfect. The music was subtle, and together the lighting and the candles on the tables, created a very comfortable atmosphere. The service provided by our waiter (Riley) was likewise top-notch.The Santorini chicken I had for main course was incredible. The (numerous) other entries on the menu were very enticing. My only regret was not saving space for dessert! More...

30 July 2018

The best service I've ever received. The best food I've ever eaten. The best atmosphere I've enjoyed meal in and it's the best place for any special occasion. I celebrated my 21st birthday at La Pentola, Pretoria. The waiters and managers made each moment feel so special,they pulled out every stop, without any request from my family. As a birthday gift from La Pentola, our waitron brought out three bottles of liquor namely, skyy vodka, high quality nut liqueur and a 10 year brandy, he then told a tale about the three liquors and as he was doing this started to light the vodka on fire...heating the glass he said,and as he explained he's story he threw the burning vodka out on the floor, letting the flames burn out on the floor,he then poured a two shots, one brandy and one nut liqueur, both into the very warm glass, he continued with his tale, explaining what he did, he finished,gave me the glass of brandy an nut liqueur mixture and told me to gently sip on it. That was La Pentola's gift to me, it was awesome to see and here what the waitron did...absolutely great first time experience. I would definitely recommend this fantastic restaurant to anyone whom seeks a fine dining experience, having a good time, and general good vibes. Oh and they have a 'no waste' policy which means you get to take some of the food home that you didn't finish. More...

D
30 July 2018

The food is very good: the chef knows his stuff, but I think a 4 start rating for La Pentola is on the generous side specifically because the chef/owner seems to be too much of a control freak and may be stuck in a bygone style of cooking. I don't like my evening to be dictated, so when the waiter tells me that we have to order starters and mains at the same time because the chef insists on that, that's a warning flag. I like my evening to be more organic and flow with my mood.I see on their next set menu evening that the fillet will be cooked to the chef's preference, which may very well not be mine, so that disturbs me.Also, when I phoned during the day to see if I needed to make a booking for a Wednesday evening, I was told I absolutely had to. There were only 5 tables that evening...and I don't like being lied to or misled.So this is a slightly weird one: a vintage cooking style, a controlling chef with meek/nervous waiters, and when we went...a past at lunch service had been spilled on the floor and not properly cleaned up.

He knew the specialty menue for the evening by heart, explaining each dish to the last detail. Was very impressive. More...
