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.

    Love this restaurant, most authentic Italian we have found outside Italy. Lovely staff, very knowledgeable and an excellent range of gluten-free options available. I had a hot smoked salmon starter, others in the party had burrata with tomatoes, pasta etc. Then for mains we had a mixture of fish, saltimbocca (which was delicious), I had ravioli stuffed with beef in Barolo and truffle oil which was amazing. Great selection of desserts and I had cheese - again, lovely. Great wines both bottles and by the glass, lovely Aperol spritz and a delicious Prosecco. Loved it. We don't visit often enough but we will go back very soon!

    We couldn't have asked for a better meal or experience - delicious, freshly prepared food (including beautifully done vegetables), excellent, attentive service and a host, Fabio, who really cared.

    A very noisy place. They are cramping too many people in and all the hard surfaces make it impossible to hear one another. Not a relaxing dining experience at all. Food was good but the side dishes overpriced.

    The staff were super friendly and helpful and the food was all delicious. The location is excellent, siting outside in front of the restaurant you have a lovely view of the river and tower bridge. Definitely sit outside of weather permits, inside is a little noisy if you're near the bar. Overall a great experience.
