Cafe Ponte is one of our favorite restaurants because the food is fantastic and consistent. We have been going there for years and can always count on a delicious meal. The chef is creative, the portions are generous, and the menu changes seasonally. The mushroom soup is a standout, as well as the beet salad. Beautiful presentation, as well. Enjoy--you... More

The Gulf Boulevard group of four grabbed our Groupons and headed to Cafe Ponte for a fabulous foodie feast last night. With a $95 Groupon coupon each couple enjoyed a six course tasting that would have cost $195 without the coupon. And, yes we did add the chef's wine pairing. While tacking an extra $70 to our final bill, the... More

Mushroom bisque is great! They have some decent lunch options and staff is knowledgeable about specials and wine.

Although the decor is circa 1990's it is in a classy way. The service is impecable--just the right combo of attentive but not hovering and intrusive. The food is outstanding--everything excedds your expectations. You cannot go wrong with anything on the menu.

So nice to have such a great restaurant in the midst of Largo businesses. World class food and service. Business lunch or fine dinner date. Both exceptional. Enjoy the mushroom soup and kale salad.

I had lunch here with colleagues, and was impresssed. This was my first visit and the food was amazing, and the staff incredible. Even waiters and waitresses from different sections would ask if we needed a refill on beverages if they were passing by and noticed low or empty glasses. Highly recommend

Spent the day at Busch Gardens and were heading to Clearwater for the evening. Read the reviews and saw it was $$$$ but the menu that was linked to Tripadvisor showed midlevel prices. Guessing it was the lunch menu so we were caught off guard when we showed up in very casual clothes to a very nice restaurant. No one... More

I try to get to Cafe Ponte whenever I'm in town, and I've been fortunate to make it two times this week. As usual I was not disappointed. We did have a small hiccup with service this evening and had to request a new waiter, once that was sorted the evening went very well. We had the cheese platter to... More

This is our favorite birthday lunch spot as it is near the office - and they will bring the birthday "boy" or "girl" a complimentary, scrumptious chocolate dessert (that is too decadent not to share). It is out of my budget range for dinner, but lunches are top notch! The "Trio" is always a favorite - a small, amazing cup... More
