Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Ponte Nuovo is our regular in Newbridge and they are now serving cocktails. Do not expect fine dining here, if that is what you are looking for go elsewhere. Instead what you get here is good quality, reliable food in a friendly atmosphere and attentive...staff. my go to always are the chicken wings to start and the pizzas are always good. This is a firm family favourite as well as for a couples night with my wife.More

We returned to the Ponte Nuovo on our first visit back to Ireland following the pandemic. It was lovely to see the restaurant thriving and extended, and to find the food as delicious as before and the staff so friendly and attentive. If you are...in Newbridge and like Italian food, you must go there!More

Awful quality food. Super cheesy decor/atmosphere. Food is barely Italian. Pizza is foul - I had the ‘Pizza Buffala’… the cheese ought to be room temperature on a piping hot pizza base/sauce… instead I received a cold pizza base, with barely warm sauce, and fridge...cold cheese. I told the waitress, she took it back to the kitchen to tell the chef… the “chef” sent it back out with the message that “it’s supposed to be that way because the cheese makes the rest of the pizza cold.” Totally stupid. If Alan Partridge opened an Italian restaurant, I imagine it would be like this place. Avoid.More

We were traveling back from a city break in Kilkenny and we wanted to eat before we got home to Dublin. I looked up restaurants nearby and this one had good reviews and we were hungry so we detoured and went there. The food was...vile, inedible and probably one of the worst meals I have ever had. Avoid this place at all costs. Most of our main courses returned hardly touched and the waiter made no attempt to ask why. We were tired and not in the mood to argue so we just paid and left. We had had a great few days away and this just spoiled the end of our break. We had dined very well up until then.More

A restaurant with great selection and quick service from our experience. We’ve been here twice and both times, despite one being particularly busy, food has been served in good time and to a high standard. There is so much to choose from and something for...most people. For dessert, I’d highly recommend the chocolate brownie as it is delicious. Definitely would return again, only thing is that it can get quite busy and some tables are rather close together due to limited space + only one bathroom per gender.More

Appetisers: Bruschetta consisted of stale bread and tomatoes on top with no olive oil. Time between the appetiser and main course 50 minutes. Main courses: Risotto: overcooked rice. A tons of lemon to hide the lack of taste of the undercooked sea food. Chicken burger...almost burned. It looked more like a sole of a worn-out shoe that actual a burger. Sea food spaghetti with sour cream: the sour cream was not cooked at all so the dish looked liked spaghetti in boiled milk.More

I think that there was a very small number of vegan choices, but best to go on the web site and examine the menu closely.
