Revisited June 2018
On your next trip to Eilat, when you have had enough of the heavy meat restaurants in the hotels (which are amazing!) enjoy a meal at il Pentolino. Lighter on the pocketbook for sure.
What will you have at il Pentolino restaurant? Dairy dishes of all types - from fast food to Italian pasta. All of the dishes are available at the restaurant and can be ordered for take away.
The restaurant has a cozy indoor area, and a very large outdoor patio. The outdoor seating is especially nice in the evening.
Start the day with a great big israeli breakfast. For only NIS 39 you get a table full of food, including eggs, bagels, salad, juice, etc. Breakfast is served till noon.
Any time of the day you can enjoy an il Pentolino pizza. These come in individual or family size and I count 14 different toppings, including extra cheese, tuna, salmon, eggplant, etc.
Top of the menu, are the il Pentolino home made out-of-this-world bagels. The menu describes them as " made in-house using a special recipe and cooking method." They aren't giving away any secrets over there.
You can buy the bagels individually or by the bag. You can have them as is, or made into sandwiches. There are 24 different fillings available for your
bagel sandwich. Then there are bagel combis. These are bagel sandwiches with an education!
The menu goes on to list salads, soup, pasta, baked potato and fish! The Pastas are very versatile. Build your own dish by selecting one of 11 styles of pasta, and choosing one of 20 different sauces. Looking for something to put on top? Il Pentolino offers another 20 toppings to spice up your pasta. Some of the sauces include; Pesto, Pesto Cream, Arrabiata, Salmon, Lemon, Alfredo and so much more.
We got on to this restaurant from an email sent to eLuna from one of our members. See below. eLuna visited this restaurant in June 2018. We are sure that when you are up for a light dairy meal, this is the place.
Note: Il Pentolino also delivers to hotels. So if you are a guest of a hotel and you opt for light dairy fare, think Il Pentolino.
