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.

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.

    Met a friend for lunch - the staff were really friendly and helpful. Had a really lovely meal, the food was really high quality. Lovely soft meatballs to start and a rich lasagne as a main course. My friend (vegetarian) had burrata and tomatoes followed by gnocchi which she really enjoyed. They removed the prawns from the dish so she could eat that.

    Great food, great location near Tower Bridge and friendly staff who left us chatting until very late after we’ve finished eating.

    Friendly and helpful service team, attentive without being intrusive. Food and wine delicious, well prepared and served. My 7 year-old son even finished the cheesy pasta from the "Bambini" menu with some relish, so kudos got winning over this picky young eater.

    It was a good choice for Mothers Day. We were offered both the a la carte and mothers day menu and allowed to choose meals from both menus. My mum had a lovely time there.The food was very nice. The portion sizes were generous and the staff were very friendly and attentive. I would definitely visit Cantina del Ponte again.

    This wasn't the first time I went there. The food and the atmosphere was amazing. The only one thing is the dessert menu, it needs to include better options and more variety. The service was very good except the table we got, they combined two circular tables for us rather than rectangular although we already booked in advance. It was very hard to communicate.
