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.

    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.

    Kudos to the chef and my sincere thanks to him for sharing a few tips for my next tiramisu - theirs is excellent. Loved the burrata, it was fresh and creamy. Everyone was very friendly and prices were reasonable.

    Our experience was quite good. At first, they put us at a less desirable table in spite of my having made a reservation far in advance but rectified that promptly when I requested a different table. The food was tasty, arrived in good time, and was piping hot. The view of Tower bridge was excellent. The only problem we had was not being able to get a taxi at that location to take us back to our hotel. We had to walk a fair distance to get to a tube 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!
