Right in downtown St. Augustine, La Pentola is within walking distance of the Casa Monica Hotel. The lunch menu is extensive and flavorful. Sitting outdoors is a plus although the interior of the restaurant is charming.

This restaurant has a very pretty courtyard which is perfect for a romantic dinner. The service and food are very good, and I particularly enjoyed the truffle pasta. This was actually our best dining experience during our three night visit. We will certainly return. Be sure to make a reservation as the courtyard tables were full at 8pm. midweek.

Our server, Anna was attentive and... More
