We celebrated a 40th birthday one of many big family celebrations we’ve had here and keep going back for so many reasons. The whole team are so helpful and attentive, no matter how busy they are they make you feel like your there only customers...and always go above and beyond to make everything perfect. The food is always amazing, freshly cooked, served with no waiting time and the drinks, especially cocktails are fantastic! The kids are made so welcome and they can accommodate parties of all sizes due to the many areas they have available. I’d highly recommend this restaurant for any occasion, just a lovely romantic meal as a couple, dinner with friends or family celebrations. A great varied menu, including children’s. Thank you once again. Five stars!More

We had a gorgeous lunch there. Our food was delicious, and we were lucky to have Pepe as our waiter. What a lovely man!. He elevated the restaurant with his friendly and caring service. He made it a nice place to go to. We ate...a delicious sloe cooked rabbit and my husband had some delicious beef. Recommend ! Our baby got a bit challenging for a bit, and we got stressed, but all of the staff was kind to us. Nobody made faces. We appreciated that ! They also got me a small but meaningful birthday surprise which was a lovely detail. I absolutely recommend this restaurant!!!!!More

Had the most lovely food and service here. Mostafa was our server and he was very attentive, polite and made the whole experience wonderful. From the booking process to turning up , the food and drinks and all of the staff working that day. It...was an amazing experience for all 12 of my guests. Even had a separate vegan menu for my brother. I would strongly recommend this play for everyone. Couples , birthdays, work dos pretty much anything and everything. Great food, great server and beautiful decor. Thank you for hosting us!More

I hired a private room for my husband’s 50th birthday in this lovely restaurant. The management were very accommodating with the planning prior the date. We went for a set menu which had great options for all people including the kids. The food itself was...excellent and reasonably priced. I would highly recommend!!More

Came to Ponte Nuovo on a Sunday afternoon for lunch with my family. The food was delicious and the staff were very attentive. I had the mussels and they were some of the best I’ve had. And the aperol spritz’ were perfection (this is coming...from an aperol snob!!). We will definitely be back.More

Hello, thank you for getting in contact. Our largest function room holds up to about 35 people. Unfortunately we can’t allow customers to bring their own speakers/ music as this could upset other customers in the restaurant... More
