A prime riverside setting boasting views of Tower Bridge and the Thames, Cantina del Ponte offers authentic Italian staples. An open wood-fired oven roars indoors, whilst a pretty outdoor terrace looks out over the water.

Inspired by cooking methods from every corner of Italy, the Cantina del Ponte menu offers a seasonal selection of dishes. Freshly rolled pasta dishes loaded with succulent fillings, tender grilled meat and fish and traditional desserts are served in abundance at Cantina del Ponte restaurant. Enjoy Tuscan pork sausage with grilled vegetables, asparagus pasta, or the celebrated signature dish, lobster linguine.

Bringing a superb range of wines to South East London, the Cantina del Ponte cellar focuses on fine Italian blends, as well as sourcing some fine international bottles.

Trendy retro décor indoors includes glossy tiling, brushed steel light fittings and old-world murals. Cantina del Ponte Bermondsey is a 10-minute walk from London Bridge Rail Station.

    Absolutely briiliant!
    Rodriguo was pleasant and helpful from the phone call when asked for directions to the restaurant. He was accommodating on arrival when we requested a well-placed table and sparkling wine of which the group proceeded to buy a bottle. Lunch was delicious and good value for money. All staff were courteous and professional in their manner. A real credit to the restaurant. We will definitely be back!

    1. I was deliberately charged for items which was offered by the waiter without being informed.
    a.waiter did not mention that it was a 'special' still water and was not tap water - it was FREAKING 4 pounds)
    b.bread was charged for a hefty 3 pounds when it was the waiter who offered some bread. No notice was mentioned that it would cost 3 pounds!
    I assumed since it is such a fancy Italian restaurant, bread should be given for free!

    2. Waiter was fairly attentive nevertheless, not attentive enough considering he placed my wine bottle elsewhere and I had to look for it and serve the wine on my own.
    Absolute unprofessional.

    Very good! Service was really great, we got help and advice for picking the right dishes. As I am vegan I really appreciated that the chef made up something for me that was not offered on the menu and it was delicious!!
