The simple things in life are sometimes the best and PV is one of them. You won't find a better cup of coffee, thin crust pizza, or bowl of minestrone for miles. Atmosphere is everything in a restaurant and PV is very laid back and so welcoming that many customers never seem to leave... Forget the diet and try the homemade florentines or cakes - carrot, lemon drizzle, amaretto - to name a few regular offerings. Overall, the menu is very simple but also offers a cheese board, panini, all complimented with rocket salad, olives and sun dried tomatoes.The main area is full of all sorts of Italian deli goodies and the other is dedicated to a vast array of second hand books, Dvd's and CD's. The owner grew up in Italy but Killaloe is lucky that he decided to settle here.

Ponte Vecchio is a truly delightful little cafe in Killaloe that must be visited if you are in the area. For food shoppers the Italian produce is excellent and very authentic. Highly recommended

Great Italy experience in Killaloe. Love the atmosphere and the coffee. It is worth a visit. Next time I will try the pizza.

We visited Pontefract Vecchio on a very wet Tuesday in August, having been there once before about four years previously.

This is a beautiful and relaxing venue to go for a beverage and tasty slice of cake (the carrot and walnut cake is to die for!) and relax on one of their comfy couches.

Next time we're back in Killaloe, we'll be sure to pop in again to this lovely quaint gem of a coffee shop.

This is a little gem of place right in the heart of Killaloe (opposite the cathedral). Great coffee and cakes, wonderful snacks with a great selection of wines and Italian foods to cook at home. Best of all are pizza nights- no menus, just make up your own order and relax in the living room style atmosphere while being regaled with local knowledge by the flamboyant owner Andrew
