Seasonally crafted regional Italian cuisine since 1994

Established in 1994 by proprietor Dennis Young, Pentimento builds on the flavors and textures of the season to create menus that will tempt and pique your curiosity.

Like all true Italian fare, the soul of each dish is derived from a specific region in Italy embodied by the finest imported and local, natural and organic ingredients then composed with passion in the hands which prepare them.
