    Welcome to La Pentola "The International Saucepan"

    La Pentola is a fusion cuisine restaurant. Established in 1995, La Pentola’s culinary roots are drawn from French, Italian and rich Mediterranean flavours, fused with the best local produce available. No compromise is taken when using olive oil, real butter, fresh herbs and cream.  All dishes are freshly prepared - no MSG or artificial flavouring is used in any of our cooking.
