St. Augustine--La Pentola

La Pentola is in a strip mall on US1 south of the Old City. It is owned and managed by a couple (Susan and Gorges). Gorges is from Mexico, but cooks a great combination of cuisines--seafood, pasta, veal, osso bucco (though not a special that night). Good wine selection as well (no liquor license).

Our table of four had the lobster/shrimp pasta special, veal marsala and scallop special. All were excellent, with the lobster/shimp pasta out in front. Half of a lobster tail with 6 or so nice shrimp. All very fresh. Scallops were a little too salty. Escargot appetizer was my favorite. Desserts were really good too--flan, tiramisu and berries in a sauvignon sauce. Flan was my favorite.

10 tables so get a reservation if you go.
