If you are staying at the hotel and don't have a car, just walk across the street to the little shopping center and pick up a bottle of wine for dinner. The town does not allow any restaurant to sell alcholic drinks. They have a nice selection of appetizers and entrées.

Since original owners, Adam and Georgette, sold the place it went downhill faster than avalanche in Alps. The food sucks and service even worse.

We always look forward to a dinner at Ponte Vecchio. Sammi takes care of everything with skill and attention to detail and fair prices. The atmosphere is lovely and always quiet. Everything is always prepared and served nicely and the food is delicious. BYOB is a plus.

This place used to be a good place to go to.....it seams it has fallen slightly. Food is off. Service is good and place is clean. Just feel that the desire to keep food up to what it was has dropped a bit. N

Loved the night out at Ponte Vecchio. Sammi is the new owner and it is showing in the quality of the food. Service is tops. I had the chicken Marsala for lunch and will be going back for dinner with my wife. The BYOB option is always appreciated.
