always a good place to have a good italian food friendly staff and attentive service
we got a Evening standard menu which was a really good deal
good size and quality of food
definitely come back
Sunday course menu was awesome - fast, attentive service was a perfect match to the great food.
Get together for friends at short notice, service, food value for money very good
Furthermore the waiter opened a bottle of wine and proceeded to overfill everyone's glass so that there was none left for the last person meaning we were forced to order another bottle. I was not happy.
The perfect spot on a hot day for a family reunion with a cool river breeze and stunning view, friendly and efficient service and good food.
Good value with offer, welcoming, but service a little slow
The evening was perfect and we were able to get a reservation so all good. We ate outside with a great view of tower bridge. We eat from the evening standard menu which was good but the drink was expensive.
Finally there card machine failed which mean we had to get cash which wasn’t a problem but just a bit annoying. To be fair this may have been the banks problem rather than the restaurant, I don’t know.
Great view on the really enjoyable terrace, we go for the Evening standard deal which is a really good value for money well balanced meal
Good size portion and really tasty food in a proper Italian way
Definitely go back
Thank you for making my daughter’s 18th birthday lunch so special!!
Food was excellent but because we took a special menu the size of our meal was smaller
This restaurant occupies a nice spot with views of Tower Bridge and the decor of the outdoors seating area is really nice. Unfortunately the set menu choices are limited and so we ordered from the main menu which was expensive taking into account the very small portion sizes of both the main course and the desert. The main course was very well cooked it was just a shame there wasn’t more of it.
The food was really tasty and the quality was excellent but the portion sizes were very small and the mains didn’t come with any sides. We ordered the 3 course set meal and were still hungry at the end of the meal. It felt more like it was a taster menu with not enough courses. The service started off well but got a bit slow towards the end.
30th birthday celebration
average. service could be improved
Not special. Food is plain. Service is very slow.
Restaurant by Tower Bridge with great views of The Thanes. We had the 2 course Ev Standard menu with a glass of wine which was fine for a informal meal and good value.
The food was really good. Service, location were excellent. We ended up seating inside. There were some large parties and it was too loud inside. We could not have a decent conversation with our dinner party. Weather permitting, i would not sit inside again.
Perfect outdoor dining on a sunny Sunday with all the activity on the river to keep you entertained. Ate off the special offer menu and both food and service was excellent
Great atmosphere on the terrace by the river, food and service were excellent and the price was good too. Couldn't fault it.
An excellent location for my husband's birthday. Dining alfresco, right by the Thames, overlooking Tower Bridge on a balmy Sunday evening was fabulous. The food was excellent and the service matched it. Thank you!
One of my favourite restaurants in London! I absolutely love it, the food is amazing, the venue beautiful, and the staff are all perfect! Waiter Antonio is excellent, as is the host (who I unfortunately didn't catch her name), who recognised me from previous visits and made our dinner even more special. I always look forward to dining at La Catina!
Great overall experience. thanks to the waiter Alessandro, very attentive and helpful.
The porchetta special was amazing!
Highly recommend this lovely piece of Italy by the Thames, will definitely be back!
We have travelled to many countries and I have never received such a pathetic dish of pasta - it was tasty but come on guys are you happy for your guests to leave hungry - there is no way in Italy you get portions like that and being Italian you know that.
Been there everytime we are in London always good never disappointed see you again in August
Great place to eat by river with tower bridge views in that backdrop. Just few steps away from Uber recognized drop off / pickup zone.
Food was alright. The garlic bread in appetizer turned out to be huge pizza like bread that killed the appetite. Next time in London we will very likely return here.
Is our first time in cantina del ponte and definitely a great beginning...... at first impact the restaurant looks really familiar and with a fizzy atmosphere
The manager Antonio looking after us, and the waiter Alessandro help us to choose our dishes, with an attentive food knowledge
We got bruschetta and octopus as starter,as main the special lobster tagliolini and the cacio e pepe both delicious and well flavoured
So well done to the chefs
We recommend this place for anyone looks for good Italian food
The service was good and the seating outside was also good. The food was average and the portions were not that big. I would go back for the view and have drinks, but not food.
after a suggestion of an italian friend we decide to try this place, and was a really good choice
we enjoy the nice view seated on the terrace which is one of the best in the city....
we received a warm welcome on arrival all the staff was really attentive and friendly
everything accomplished of a really good meal flavoured an tasty
my colleague decided to for the set menu which looks a really good value for money
for me i tried the burrata and the seafood spaghetti absolutely fantastic
definitely come back
Excellent atmosphere, staff and view from the outside seating. All very well priced.
Only positive is the location and view. Awful food, poor service and very over priced. Please give this a miss for your pocket and your palate.
Had the £25 weekend buffet deal. Service was slow at our table and the help yourself buffet was often left with many plates empty and slow to be replenished.
There's nothing more disappointing than going to a place you've been to many times before and associate with good times, and then you're met with disaster on many fronts.
A new buffet style antipasti and desert menu with a choice of main was grossly overpriced, grossly inadequate and of exceptionally low quality, with rare replenishment and only of the cheapest deserts. Under no circumstances, would I recommend anyone order that menu.
The service was woeful- despite having booked and reconfirming that morning no table was ready on arrival despite more than half the restaurant being empty, waiting 15 minutes for that to still not happen and so going in to sit at the only table that could be ours, forgotten drinks, tables where patrons had left remaining uncleaned with empty bottles and half eaten food left for 45+ minutes.
A real disappointment. It was great when it was great.
Great food, great ingredients cooked to perfection. Location is fantastic. The team is very helpful
Great evening with great food and brilliant service
Well-priced riverside restaurant with outside seating which is less noisy. Good set menu options - we all had different mains and they were all good. Open Table deal includes a glass of fizz, making it excellent value.
Loved this restaurant and its views of London!!
Best Lasagna i have ever had. By far. Go here for real Italian food and superb view over River Thames! I come back.
My mom loved it!
Fabulous in every way. Great food, decor, location and service. The three course deal with Prosecco is great value. This place is fantastic.
Convenient location for the Bridge Theatre, just a couple of minutes' walk away. Limited choice on the set menu, but the food was good and the three courses + prosecco menu is very good value. Friendly, efficient service, but the atmosphere was rather quiet - we were the only ones eating inside - and the music - largely Frank Sinatra - was a little off-putting!
