Nice Italian restaurant with great location on the river Thames. Pint of beer was very expensive. Guess that’s London for you. Food was nice. Breadbasket was excellent.

We had an excellent lunch today at the Cantina del Ponte. The Set Menu offered a really good seasonal choice and served by friendly and helpful staff. The location right by the River Thames and the Tower Bridge is perfect. I would definitely return again.
