Two of us had the ES set lunch. It was absolutely beautiful. The tuna starter was delicious and the sea bream was the best I have tasted, with a lovely crispy skin. Service was excellent, unhurried but attentive. A really nice atmosphere with great views...More

Family lunch taken here using the fixed price lunch menu. The menu was limited but good, wine was fabulous and the service even better. Had a wheelchair user with us send she was well looked after. Not cheap but good value.

I wouldn't hesitate to return here. The staff are attentive and my friends and I enjoyed an unhurried tasty lunch which didn't even break the bank. All with a visitors view of the river, it's a great place.

Now that I look back, our visit in April seemed to revolve around the Thames. This restaurant has a great view of the Tower Bridge, so if the weather permits you should definitely try sitting outside. The food is good and staff is friendly.

Description
This lovely riverside restaurant offers all the warmth and welcome of a traditional Italian trattoria, but there's no mistaking the fact that it's in the heart of London - thanks to a spectacular and uninterrupted view of Tower Bridge. With simple, heartly Italian dishes prepared with lots of passion, this is a great spot for lunch and dinner alike. Please be aware that Cantina del Ponte will be open between 12 to 18 on New Year day.
