While the food and atmosphere was lovely we were extremely disappointed with the Cantina Special. The menu implied the pasta would be mixed in the wheel in front of you, hence the £15 price tag for plain pasta with cheese. This did not happen and...More

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.
