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.

    Staff are focused, and detailed, with a cordial manner, therefore the restaurant flows well with customers. We were a party of four and booked a table in the window, we had a long easy lunch 12.30 -5pm. We were content when we left and had all enjoyed our meal.
    The management have a well run establishment, and that is imperative. Long may it continue.

    Very well located Italian restaurant. I had the beetroot and Gorgonzola salad, followed by the cod in tomato and olive sauce. My wife had the carpaccio of beef followed by the salmon. We enjoyed them all. Good choice of wines and good service. Only downside is we were seated by the busy area that led to the the loos and the service/kitchen area. Would have preferred a seat more into the main part of the restaurant but it was busy and choice of seating limited.

    Food and service was good. Only comment was that the cheese was served straight from the fridge and too cold etc
