Such a travesty that this wondrous restaurant will have to close.
Very devastating for me personally, my family and our community.
Thank you Pentimento Family!!
Pentimento is great! Shame on the Ward Melville Foundation and the chair person, Gloria, for not doing everything in their and her power to keep this neighborhood gem open - we don't need another glorified fast food "joint" in its place. Negotiate a new lease ASAP! Save Pentimento!!!!!!
Always a terrific experience!
Service was horribly slow, food was excellent.
Awesome food!! Quaint and clean establishment
Always the very best!!!!
Pentimento is a great little restaurant - classy but still casual. The place is so pretty, the people are so nice and the food is great! The clientele is pretty good too - although that sounds self serving - it spans age groups and ethnic groups and is all around quite cosmopolitan! I hope that the landlord reconsiders terminating their lease. The other restaurant names I hear mentioned as replacements are nothing more than glorified fast food stops - Stony Brook should work to keep its image and its style - Ward Melville would absolutely demand Pentimento stay! After struggling through the pandemic so far, this restaurant should get more than short shrift from the landlord. As the signs around the area say - Save Pentimento!!
I had the fettuccine with tuna. There was absolutely NO tuna in the pasta. Very disappointing. The zucchini appetizers was very good
Service was great and food is delicious . Consistently
It's a shame it's closing. Great everything! Nothing to complain about. Well worth the visit before it closes.
So sorry Pentimento is closing.
Great as always! Hoping the owners find another space
This Restaurant continues to put out outstanding dishes and wait service in a perfect enviroment. Only complaint... Entrees/Large Plate portions could be a little larger.
Save Pentimento Restaurant!! Stony Brook Village is where it belongs.
Great dining experience. Delicious food and friendly service.
Lunch in the garden! Lush and cool (on a super hot day!)… smooth melon soup, shishito peppers and fish tacos..finished with blueberry sorbet..as usual, perfect in every way!
Food was very tasty but the portions are very small!
Great food, great service, nice location. Dined on the patio and had a wonderful experience. It's really too bad that they lost their lease and will be closing next month. One of the better establishments around.
One of our favorite restaurants! The pannelle is always delicious, as is the budino pudding. Wish they weren't having to close.
Best and fav place ! Has to stay🙏🏻🙏🏻
Fantastic meal and lovely outdoor space. Great drinks as well
As usual a most wonderful experience from personal greeting and attention to detail to the ambience and the food …our favorite neighborhood restaurant!!! BTW, The manager, AnneMarie, is the best!
Excellent as always! Please save Pedimento ♥️
One of the best places to eat. Great service and staff. Food and drinks were spot on. The staff is more than willing to help and know the food they are serving you.
We were helping our son move into Stony Brook University and I was checking online to see what nice restaurants are around the area and had read the wonderful reviews for Pentimento Restaurant that we had to try it out for ourselves. We had a wonderful dinner! Everything that we ordered was delicious! The service was very good as well, it was a nice ambiance at the restaurant. I was sad to read that Pentimento has lost their lease at their current location of 27 years. I hope they are able to find another place/another lease or hopefully the realtor will change their mind about renewing the lease. What a wonderful restaurant and would love to try more of their dishes when coming back to Stony Brook to visit our son.
Our waiter was not nice to us...but the food was excellent..hoping to save Pentimento for our nxt visit nxt year
It was great but portions could be more especially the grouper taco. It’s 1 taco and it’s $8. And hardly had any fish in it. Same with limoncello shrimp. Small portion. I know it’s small plates. But I’m spending over $100 and left hungry.
We have returned to dining at our favorite restaurants and feel entirely comfortable with dining out at Pentimento. One of the finest neighborhood restaurants. Always offering excellent specials along with their regular menu items. Friendly welcoming atmosphere with professional service staff.
Pentimento is our neighborhood "Cheers". We love everything about it ~ the food, the people, Lisa & Dennis and the ambiance. It is incredible how they reinvented themselves during the pandemic and how serving the community was always first on their agenda. I can't say enough wonderful things about Pentimento! Oh ~ one more ~ there is something for EVERYONE on the menu. Vegan, vegetarian, gluten free, etc. at every price point also!!!
First time dining here. Food was fresh and excellent as was the service. Definitely coming back
Pentimento is everything a restaurant should be.
Excellent food, impeccable service, beautiful decor inside and out.
It would be a travesty if they were forced to close their doors.
Keep Pentimento open!!!
Just a nice night out and the food is always amazing.
Always an excellent time at Pentimento. Never fails to exceed our expectations
Our favorite date night spot! The atmosphere is always welcoming and friendly. The food and drinks are out of the world, they consistently knock it out of the park. We’ve never had a bad meal there in all the years we’ve been going. 10/10 would recommend
Wonderful restaurant with interesting food choices, especially a number of options for vegetarians. The outside garden offers a delightful dining experience. The staff are all professional and courteous. Will definitely return!
The vibe of this place was very cool. Very loud though, so if you're trying to have a quiet dinner, this might not be the place for you. Had an outstanding cheeseburger and tried 4 apps. The burger was the best part of the meal.
The food was very good
I had the wedge salad and the swordfish special with couscous
I’d come here again
We were at Pentimento with a friend celebrating a retirement. My wife and I arrived first and sat in the bar area and had a drink. The bartender was attentive and the drinks excellent.
When our friend arrived, we moved to the outdoor patio area at a lovely table surrounded by shrubs and perennial plants. It was very pretty and relaxing.
We ordered the zucchini flower appetizer and crusty bread as appetizers. Delicious!!! My wife had the black ink pasta, our friend had the pasta with pork ragu and I had the pasta with zucchini noodles and added grilled chicken. All of our entrees were nicely plated, arrived hot and were truly tasty. The staff was attentive and professional.
Pentimento is one of our favorite restaurants and we visit it whenever possible. This was our first visit since the pandemic and it was truly worth the wait! See you soon Pentimento!!!
