...the pizza could have stayed 30 seconds longer in the oven. That's my only point of critic. Otherwise, we had a top lunch.

Not as Italian as its name might suggest. I had a pizza, yes, but nothing special about it and definitely not one I will remember. Friendly staff.

Ordered a pizza "prosciutto and bufala". First of all the consistency of the dough was too soft and gummy, instead of prosciutto they topped with a thick cut smelly "spalla" and as last they replace the mozzarella di bufala whit a normal poor quality mozzarella. Prices aren't cheap, won't recommend this place.

Went into Ristorante al Ponte for lunch! The service was very efficient, and service was fast. They were very busy and our only criticism of the service was that they seemed to "need" the table. The food was excellent, good portions, very tasty and well cooked. Even a vegetarian menu. We didn't have pizza, but could see the pizzas served... More

We stayed for a quick lunch at "al Ponte" and enjoyed it. We had a bit of everything (pizza, pasta, meat, risotto) and all was good but a bit salty.

Once i added couple of ingredients to my chosen pizza it was amazing. Views of the water are to die for and restaurant itself had a good staff and location.

Even by Swiss standards, the pizza was terrible. Puffy sweet dough that's more like a baked brioche than a pizza. The pasta was ok. The restaurant is located splendidly though. On a bridge and on a corner. Costumer service was great. Please give this review a thumbs up

Excellent staff. We asked for a Risotto with vegetables. It was excellent. Pasta was also good. If you are a vegetarian, pasta with pesto or tomato sauce might be a good choice. Tiramisu gets 4 out of 5 points...! Overall good value for the money..!
