La Pentola
La Pentola Costanza really loves Italian cuisine.  So much so, he could probably eat it every day.  Actually, that is what I've been doing for the last 2 meals leading up to this one.  Pronto ... continue Sherman's Food Adventures · Blog

Decent but nothing that would make you want to go back. The food was basic with only the octopus on our starters being the highlight. Definitely has the potential for being much better in every aspect rather than what was offered GooglePlace - February 2018

I came here for dine out with five friends and wow this is the worst experience I have had in a Vancouver restaurant in a long time. We made an 8:30 dinner reservation because it was a Friday. The hostess walks us to a table that is already full. Ok no problem, we go to the front again and her manager rolls his eyes and snaps at her. Finally they find us a table and we are seated. Our server comes over and asks if we want a drink, she asks a few of us at the table and then walks away. Two of us were not able to order drinks yet. Finally I get my scotch and it has a fly in it, no apology. The drink was replaced. Finally we get around to order dinner, we place our 4 course meals. The first course comes out and we would love some wine with dinner and fresh cracked pepper but our server is no where in site. She appears when we are almost done and asked how it tasted. We finally ordered wine my friend who did not want wine could not order another cocktail because she already walked away. Finally we get to the main course and ended up getting up grabbing the pepper mill and cracking our own pepper. No quality check was done, my friend did not like his cold meal and when the bus boy came by and asked if he was done( he did not touch it) my friend said no it was awful I would like something else. The bus boy replied " are you joking". Again no apology they made him something else. The server re appears around desert and places down the bill while chewing food. We were out on a Friday night ready to have drinks! We would have ordered 3x the amount of wine and cocktails if our server actually came by and paid attention to us. The restaurant was not even busy! When we were leaving our coats were in coat check and the hostess was no where to be seen. Everyone was crowding the bar so we opened the closet and helped ourselves. We then resumed having cocktails at another establishment who actually wanted us there. GooglePlace - February 2018

Amazing food and drinks menu. Interior is so beautiful! Portions look small but very satisfying. I recommend the Chocolate almond torte for desert! The combination of flavors is so delicious! GooglePlace - January 2018

Absolutely delightful authentic, tasty, clean and fresh Italian dishes. Fabulous service and the reasonable priced bill that sat far below expectation. As a Italian food geek I give the culinary and service team a high five. We came on wine Wednesday that priced little. The pasta bolognese definitely knocked out of the park. Will come back. Can't stop raving about it... Well done guys! GooglePlace - January 2018

I wanted to give La Pentola 4 stars and for the quality of food and service, it deserves it. I brought my partner there for his birthday. The food was lovely and our waitress took very good care of us. However, our meal was unfortunately ruined by the presence of a birthday party in the lounge area beside the restaurant. The sound system apparently is shared and therefore at 9pm (our seating was at 8.30), we were subjected to loud (to the point we had the shout) r&b/rap music. When we asked our waitress she was very apologetic but said that as the speakers were all connected the volume could not be adjusted. For what was a delicious meal I was bitterly disappointed by the ambience. I will be returning to La Pentola again, but will be avoiding it at weekends due to this issue. It is a shame that this lovely restaurant is subject to the hotel’s wishes. GooglePlace - December 2017
