Very good service & food - the drinks were priced reasonably
We had a reservation for 6 inside for lunch, but it was so nice out we were able to get a lovely table on the patio. The food was great, prices reasonable, and service was very good. I would definitely recommend.
We just love Pentimento! I phoned the restaurant during the afternoon for an outside table. The person answering the phone was so nice and accommodating! When we arrived we were seated at a beautiful outside table-my wife was thrilled! Lisa kept coming by our table to make sure everything was perfect .... and it was! The food and service is top-notch. We can't wait to go back!
Always a wonderful experience dining at Pentimento. It is a Stony Brook gem and we truly enjoy going there whether it’s for everyday dining or a special occasion. Highly recommend.
Thank you Pentimento for another great meal!
Excellent lunch!Great service. Wonderful relaxing afternoon!
We were seated on the patio. Enjoyed some cocktails and small plate appetizers.
We tried the Limoncello Shrimp, delish ! The lobster hash browns were surprisingly good. It was server’s suggestion to order the bread basket with canellini spread, you will want to dip the bread in the limoncello sauce.
Craft cocktails - tangerine cosmopolitan and aviation were fabulous!
Management: Please don’t let these be seasonal and continue these cocktails year round.. service was great!
I will be back soon!
Great food, but smaller sized portions. Make sure to get additional sides
Great food and service, my only complaint is that I had to wear a mask coming into the restaurant even though I'm fully vaccinated. I feel that should be an option. This way they can respect both sides!!
Went there for a farewell get together. Over the years I have always enjoyed lunch or dinner at Pentimento, Will miss this excellent neighborhood restaurant and hopefully will find one as pleasant at my new home.
Memorable anniversary dinner outside on the patio - perfect quiet ambience - barrely audible music perfect- mussel appetizer great - sambucca a first in mussles for me quite nice. chick pea fritters needed seasoning. Dinner Special Sea bass - looked over done but that was the look of the skin - appearance not great but was tasty. Seared sesame tuna was excellent and worth the trip, bricked chicken was very good. a little slow on drink refresh, but Enzoni was great. Cannoli's and coffee were excellent.
As always, Pentimento was amazing! Our favorite restaurant so it’s lucky we live just up the street!
It will be nice when they can regain their dining room again although we have taken advantage of their little market!
Great small plates and food. Waitress wasn't very friendly for a small place.
Food was great. Covid protocols were adhered to. The waitress we had wasn’t attentive at all. Barely listened to our order and messed up the drink order. Never came back to check on us. The other staff made up for her.
Dinner with friends at this established and welcoming restaurant was just as I remembered it. Glad to be back and enjoying the food. Everything was good and we all had a lovely time.
It was our second visit and our experience was wonderful! The food and service was top-notch! We met the owner (Lisa) who was very welcoming.
Food was fantastic! Went for Mother’s Day, did not feel rushed at all. Waitress was great!
Every meal here is superlative!
Always a treat to be here.
Love Love Love everything about Pentimento.
Been coming here since Day One (1964) and it just never disappoints.
Food was good service was excellent
Nice selection of entrees and prices. Pleasant staff. Not overcrowded. Looking forward to the outdoor courtyard dining.
The food never disappoints at Pentimento. As always, experience was perfect!
Great. Service wonderful, food nice, no rush. Altogether a great meal
Pentimento is a great restaurant- the staff is knowledgeable and attentive, the food is delicious and unique, and the vibe of the place is warm, modern and comfortable. For those concerned about CoVID, they take care to make sure everyone is socially distant, wearing masks around the restaurant and have hand sanitizer available. Love coming to this restaurant, it’s such a great spot in Stony Brook Village!
Brussels sprouts are delicious as is the lebneh. Lentil salad was tasty but not as good as the apps. Portions are generous. I think next time a table of apps will be the choice. Need more heaters for outside, they only 2 had but have about 6-7 tables out there. We were promised one but it went to a reservation ( which we had) that requested a heater. Who would think to 'pre-order' a heater? I will say though, table are very nicely placed and never felt unsafe eating outside. Bought some treats at the market to take home too. Will def be back!
We went to Pentimento for Easter. This was our first time back since the pandemic. It seemed like the menus got smaller. I was expecting more unique type of items. I will have to go back on a non-holiday.
Great place. Food is excellent and the service is quick
Once again an incredible meal. We both ordered the special. The grass fed rib eye & the seared yellowfin tuna with a lemon couscous & spinach. Absolutely perfect!!! The lemon couscous was light and almost refreshing.
And the apricot margarita is a MUST !!! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
I thought this was more of an upscale Italian restaurant but it wasn't. The food was just okay. Definitely no need to return.
Such a cute date night place! Went to the market place after which was adorable
Will be back
Surprisingly our food for the four adults was terrible. The Steak was tasteless, spaghetti bolognese was unexpectedly full of cream, my vegetarian choice of cauliflower sandwich had no flavor.
Previously I’ve enjoyed their food!! With a bill of almost $200 most of the food was left on the plates. Very disappointing!!!
All good. Not outrageously good but good. Tough with limited staff due to COVID. Totally understand. One other quick note. Asked when making the reservation if it was a special occasion and noted it was our anniversary but then nothing. Why ask.
Was a very special night out celebrating St Patricks Day. I had potato leek soup which was creamy and flavorful. Corned beef and cabbage with horseradish and mustard dipping sauce on the side. The carrotts were tender, the cabbage delicious and the potatoes cooked to perfection. The Brown Derby I drank was spot on and suited my meal in just the right way. We also enjoyed giant white beans, artichokes and quinoa salad with salmon. The bread choices were delightful. Our waitstaff were spot on as usual. It was nice to see an old movie playing again on the big tv. Lots of menu choices and we finished up the night with a stop in the market for some specialties. Well worth it!
One of my favorite places to eat on L.I. Relaxed atmosphere but very pretty. Staff is wonderful. Food always good.
Our favorite restaurant. The drinks and food are always so good. The service is always good too. I love the addition of the market!
Staff, service and food are always great.
had a great meal with my wife. Great Covid precautions. Great food and reasonable prices.
Delicious! Great food! Great service. Very attentive
The hostess/floor manager was lovely. We sat by a window and were cold so we dined with coats on. Service was good. Falafel sandwich was a bit underwhelming. Would go back when the bar opens and have wine and small plates.
