When the pandemic hit and we had to close and re-think our business, we decided to convert its large dining room into a food market to meet the needs of the community’s new dining habits. While the restaurant will continue to have a dining area with prepared food, the food market will be an extension of the kitchen which is the hub of the restaurant. The market is now open, and its shelves and bins, refrigerators and freezer are well-stocked with prepared Italian specialty dishes as well as fine imported ingredients that customers can take home to prepare food themselves...these are the same ingredients used by Chef Dennis in the kitchen to prepare the restaurant’s meals and include everything from antipasti to desserts as well as sauces, salads and soups, pasta, beans and rice, cheeses and meats, wines and sodas and a whole lot more. All this so that members of our community and beyond can prepare and enjoy Pentimento’s meals exactly as they are served in the restaurant.

Lisa was extremely helpful in accommodating me and my friend (who needed a particular arrangement.) Waiter & rest of staff were courteous and attentive.
We had a really nice experience/lunch.
Also enjoyed "The Market".

Thank you Lisa and staff.

My favorite place for years, they’re doing it right during COVID. Spaced tables, no one at the bar but still very personable and impeccable service. You will not be disappointed.

One of my favorite places but... we had a 630 reservation and we were rushed to order because they wanted to close early. It wasn’t a great experience this time.

Fair and Good. Great location, ambiance isn’t really something that you love to hang out, food is good including the price range, service is good but not good enough.

Pentimento has a great outdoor patio for dining, plus some spaced-out indoor seats. Great food and COVID-friendly. Not a wait for our food, either, so it was good for a quick lunch.

Love this place. Their garden we ate in is beautiful and nicely spaced with other tables. The food was very good (we both had the steak) and the service just right. We have not yet been disappointed as we keep coming back.

Food arrives super fast. I loved my pasta (fettucini with shrimp), but the appetizers (fried calamari and tuna tartare)were just average.

The waiter was unprofessional. Rush ordering process and shared his distaste that order did not include anything more than main dish or drink upgrades. Waiter did not return with actual cash change. The portion size was small in comparison to price. I counted six small microwaved raviolis for the price of $23 or $3.83 per single raviolis.

The food here is great. I've been twice and am never disappointed. We came for lunch this time. There weren't a lot of people in the restaurant (it was a weekday), but our server was still incredibly absent-minded about us. She brought drinks to surrounding tables that had been seated after us, before she brought over a tea I had ordered when I sat down. The bill was left on our table with my card in it for at least five minutes. But she did get the order right. She was perfectly nice to us, but I saw her roll her eyes at a group of older women, who had just walked in and in the disorientation, blocked her way. It's just little things you notice. Food still great though.

We ate at Mirabelle the night before and this was so much better. The food was served hot and without a long wait. The place was hopping when we got there. We waited about 10 min. which was fine. The waiter was not too engaging and forgot to bring items we asked for twice, however it was super busy - we were good with it.
We would definitely go there first if we were in the area.

We went on Valentine's Day. The place was packed. I had not been there in several years. The place is tough to get a reservation on weekend. They have gourmet style food. I had a lobster dish on a spinach linguine. My wife had a bolognese sauce pasta. Both excellent. For appetizers we had a mushroom baked in pastry and lobster with home fries, again excellent. For dessert we shared a thick chocolate pudding. It was excellent. This is one of my favorite restaurants.

Had reservations for valentine's day and although there were plenty of people waiting, we got seated right away. Fast and friendly service! Delicious meal (scallops). Will definitely be returning to Pentimento more often!
