It was delightful to eat outside overlooking the river. The food was very good. Enjoyed the gnocci, especially.

    Another excellent meal for four of us - very good small plates, tasty and fresh, and a great selection. Prompt and helpful service, good value and so, so convenient pre-show, on the spot.

    Cantina del Ponte could not have been better . Service was so impeccable.. Everyone took so much care and looked after us so well
    We were offered an extra dish on the house and a glass of Prosseco because I arrived early and had to wait for my friends.

    Yes it was fine. The waitress made it clear when ordering that the dishes come altogether. By the time we had eaten the first bit the 2nd bit had gone cold and my cod did not arrive at the same time. But it all tasted nice.
