Just ate what's arguably the most delicious meal of our entire trip to Israel at Il Pentolino in Eilat. I promised my family no food pictures on this trip so I will do my best do to describe. In lieu of bread they brought to the table a basket of fresh bagel halves, buttered and lightly seasoned. We were going... More

My daughter and I visited Il Pentolino for breakfast a couple of days ago. The service was very friendly and the atmosphere relaxed. The owner Ezy and his son Gal are well known in Eilat and the restaurant is a popular place among the locals and tourists. Since its opening 13 years ago the restaurant has not only maintained its...

Super pizzas. Nice Terrace. Liked the menu a lot. Maybe a little overprized though. Athmosphere relaxed. Service also good. Which is not always guaranteed in Eilat.. Toilet needs an upgrade.

Really friendly service and delicious fresh pasta. Because it is away from the central tourist area it isn't expensive either but much nicer. Recommend the Firenze pasta... and the creme brûlée...

We booked in advance but came abit early and the place was full. Instead of letting us wait a bit they offered a seat outside which was hot and noisy (practically on the street) with a wobbly table. Entrees were good (we had fried myshrooms and garlic nread). Main course took too long a wait. Pizzas arrived quite fast but... More

We ate at Il Pentolino twice. Breakfast and lunch. Both times service was a little slow but that's because they prepare fresh and very tasty food: the most authentic bagels I have found in Israel, fresh pasta, great salads and sauces. Perhaps the biggest minus is the location in the residential section of Eilat and not close to the hotels,... More

Place clean and excellent Italian food, careful no meat is served, everything with vegetables. Reasonable pricing and good wine. Friendly service as well.

This should have been a good Kosher Italian dairy restaurant. Sadly, every other time I've eaten here 'something' has been off: this time my so-called 'aldante' spaghetti was tasty but too tough to chew and the service spotty despite several servers present. I'll probably try again next year... but I really wish they'd clean up their act!
