Lovely two course lunch from set menu. Excellent value and great view of Tower Bridge. Would definitely go again.
I went in Cantina del ponte forum a dinner with friends and we couldn't have choose a better place!! Everything was perfect: the place is tidy and clean, the staff really welcoming and fun and the food simply amazing! The best Italian restaurant in London! One of the most charming terrace by the river with a stunning view of the Tower bridge.
From the starters to the dessert, everything was well prepared and delicious! I would like to recommend something from the menu that I liked the most, but then I should recommend the whole menu! And last, thanks to all the staff for let us have a great night, especially Manuel and Erica!
Seriously, take in consideration to have a bite there, I will definitely go there again!
Traveled over for business and dined alone. Tomash (from Hungary) saw to it that I was comfortable, helped with my wine selection, and even surprised me with a Happy Birthday serenade from the staff. He helped make my experience there, that much better. The food was fantastic! I’m glad I came back there to dine.
Everything was amazing especially the manager Antonio that made our regular day off in a special day
The price didn’t reflect the very average food.
Service was good
Food was very good and authentic. Service was attentive yet not intrusive. The Riverside location is beautiful and we had a very good evening. Overall definitely a place we will return to.
Right on the river at Shad Thames. Very good value, especially the current Evening Standard offer and pre-Theatre menus. Friendly and efficent service. Food good too. Will certainly go again.
Always good to go here, another lovely evening and the evening standard menu was delicious.
Our group of 8 had a wonderful time at Cantina del Ponte. We were there celebrating a birthday. The waiting staff really looked after us and were fantastic accommodating one of my friends who has a number of food allergies. The chefs were able to make something completely fresh which was fantastic. All food was lovely and fresh and the set lunch menu was fantastic value. Would definitely recommend this restaurant and would certainly go again.
Visited Cantina del Ponte for a pre-theatre meal before visiting the Bridge Theatre - just 5 minutes' walk away. Overall the food was enjoyable - slightly strange courgette soup for starter, followed by a good portion of grilled salmon and then Pecorino cheese for dessert. Very pleasant and efficient staff, and great views across the Thames from the outside terrace.
We were early so got a seat outside with no trouble. The food was tasty and the waiters pleasant. The Evening Standard deal was very good value. The glass of house wine that came with this was decent.
Booked the Cantina for a Monday lunch with friends visiting from overseas. We had the Evening Standard offer . I had the vegetarian penne pasta which was very delicious. The service was excellent, fortunately we pretty much had the place to ourselves as it was very quiet with only a few tables occupied. This venue overlooking the tower bridge is the icing on the cake.
Good value, honest food in a lovely setting!
Always a pleasure to come dine for a lunch or a dinner. All staff is great and the athmosphere is great. We love this place in our neighborhood.
Ottimo posto dove mangiare italiano a Londra.
Posizione spettacolare con vista Tower Bridge, parlano italiano ed il servizio è molto buono.
Il cibo è cucinato bene e con ottimi sapori, il prezzo è giusto considerando la posizione ed il fatto che siete a Londra.
Consigliato, in futuro se capitera ci tornerò sicuramente.
Once again The Cantina delivered. Excellent food, super wine, great service, and an ocean liner passing by. What more could you ask?
Lovely view of tower bridge, good food, reasonable service and the set menu offer is great. Nice ambience!
We had the evening standard set menu. Delicious and good portions. We sat on the terrace which just made it even better. Nothing better than being by the river in the summer with good food and wine. Service was attentive but not overly fussy.
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
The food is quite good; nothing special. Rather annoyingly our 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. We would most likely have ordered another bottle but 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.
