Wonderful Italian food served here. Upscale menu, consistently high quality and reasonably priced. Splitting appetizers is encouraged. Of course, the pasta and pizza are outstanding.

I am starting to think that somepone is posting malicious reviews; or has NO idea what fine Italian food is supposed to be. The chef's creations of octopus and squid are exquisite, as is all his seafood and meat! I cannot recommend Ponte enough.

My wife and I have not eaten at Ponte Vecchio yet even though we have past by it a number of times. after reading many of the reviews I would question the practice of a possible boot on a "possible customers car". I would think if the customer approached the owner of Ponte Vechio with the reason for the delay before entering the restaurant to eat that the boot would have been removed, free of charge. Personally, I would have called the Police and had them straighten it out without getting my Italian temper in a knot. What say you PV? "Salt overkill" seems to be a constant complaint of customers visiting Italian Restaurants. It might be a good idea if the waitress asked the customer how they prefer their food preparation; salted or unsalted. I understand the need to salt as preparation of food but it can be done lightly with leaving the taste test to the customer allowing the customer to adjust to their taste. After reading the reviews I would give PVR to serve us as customers. My hobby is cooking and we are Italian so that definitely would be a true test. Wine with diner to me is not a compliment to the food. Well prepared food to us should have a natural taste with the possibility of a wine used for cooking. Do hope this will be taken as a compliment and we are looking forward to a visit to this well respected restaurant.

I didn't see a question mark. Is there a question? We didn't find the food too salty, and thought it seasoned perfectly.
