Cantina del Ponte


A corner of Italian sunshine in Butlers Wharf, Shad Thames, Cantina del Ponte offers the influences, flavours and atmosphere of Italy. A huge canopy provides a people watching paradise for sunny days with great views of Tower Bridge. As any Italian will tell you, the true essence of good Italian cooking is using quality seasonal products and cooking them simply in order to bring out the flavours, a philosophy that Head Chef Claudio subscribes to. The menu is always changing and offers Italian classics alongside more innovative dishes.

Went for lunch and stuck with the fixed price menu. I could have had the three course, but dessert wasn't high on my list. The two course lunch was plenty.
