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.

The best restaurant in Newbridge without a doubt. The food was amazing, always is! The atmosphere and staff were superb. We couldn't fault a thing. 3 courses for 4 people with 2 bottles of wine and numerous soft drinks for under €200......excellent value for money...for top class food and service. Forgot to take photos of the food...it was so delicious we just got stuck into it!!! There wasn't a crumb left on any plate, that's for sure.More

Dined with 2 friends on a busy Saturday evening. Food was ok...not authentic Italian food like you get in Italy. But was reasonably priced. Place was quite busy which always is a good sign. Serving staff were very 'sales orientated' bordering on being pushy. Also...dont make the mistake like I did of entering the wrong front door. The door on left ( also un-signed) brings you into middle of restaurant. When I entered I was given a very dirty unwelcoming look by the waiter which spoiled the whole experience for me.More

We decided to eat on at 7 on a Saturday evening and booked a table for two a week earlier. When we arrived, we were told that they had no record of our booking. But, even though they were very full, they found us a...table. The most striking feature was the noise, maybe inevitable in a busy restaurant, which made it difficult for the two of us to have a conversation. This wasn't helped by the tables being close together. We had the feeling that they were keen for us to eat quickly in order to free up the table. Having said all that, our three course meal was excellent and the quality would be hard to better. I guess that Newbridge is short of Italian restaurants and that 7:00 on a Saturday evening may not have been the most sensible day / time to choose!More

Myself and my friend went to for a meal after she finished work yesterday and our visit has left us very unhappy and also we have both said we will not be going back . We made our orders yesterday and the first thing that...wasn’t right was the mixer bottle of Coke we received when we had our drinks delivered . To pay full price for a Diet Coke or Coke Zero for a mixer size bottle is something slot of places are doing right now . When I received my pizza my friend was given fresh (over cooked) fish and over cooked half portion of chips . She immediately called back the female server and asked her to replace the chips with fresh ones that weren’t over cooked and she was very polite and within her rights to ask. Her plate with the chips and fish were left in front of her while she asked the server to take the plate away and out the fish under the heat lamp as it was getting cold the other servers were looking at the plate every time they walked passed . All the time I have to be honest my friend was more than nice yet she was stared at by the cooks and other servers ,we eat out every week and we have never been made few so uncomfortable . When we went up to pay at the till but the main entrance a member of staff was about to check us out and he asked was everything ok,my friend said no it wasn’t and explained about the treatment we received . A younger male member of staff came to hear what was being discussed and he started to talk over my friend and question her like she was a child ,he replied when my friend told him about the way her dinner was served he said it was a little better the second time ????? You almost finished it he said and I had to say to him that he is talking down to my friend and also patronizing her like she was a child . He told us he was the bosses son and we both said that isn’t the issue here the issue was the service and how it was handled . Again we will never go there again and tbh it use to be our favorite place .More

Arrived her at 16:30 on SATURDAY afternoon, place was empty. I'm coeliac and thought there would GF items available.. like Milano.. or Rustic Italian in Naas ( Amazing BTW go there instead ) The only items on the menu that are Gluten Free is a...chicken dish and steak. Even the salads are marked as containing gluten. We asked and were told that Gluten is marked on the menu. We asked about the early bird ( it was 16:30 ) and was told by the waitress that they "no longer offer early bird menu" this despite it being on there Facebook page and also a large sign over the kitchen area reading " Our early bird menu served 7 days a week"... LIES. The below is taken from their Facebook page 23rd April '22 Il Ponte Nuovo is located in the heart of Newbridge. Open 7 days a week with our famous Early Bird Menu available all night Monday - Friday and till 6:45 Saturday & Sunday. 2 Course Meal - €14 3 Course Meal - €17 On to the food... I ordered a chicken dish and it was.. I'll be polite. not good. The mushroom sauce had seperated into creamy curdled sauce and olive oil. The plate it was served on was freezing cold and the chicken was tough and chewy and cold (but cooked) in the center. Atmosphere: is very run down and old looking. Weird stone effect wallpaper all over the place, definitely needs a little love and attention.More

When ordering for a takeaway I was completely shocked by the food, very very poor quality food with an extremely oily pizza and cold chips. Also a very rude delivery driver asking for more money.

Had lovely meal with the other half last night. Very enjoyable. Were asked at time of booking if we had COVID certs, which we had to show on arrival. All staff had masks on, all tables cleaned as soon as customers left. Friendly waitress, checked...to see if all was ok and we were needing anything. Couldn’t ask for more on a night out. Will be back soon.More

Ordered takeaway this evening and payed €28 euros for a burnt pizza, a mediocre handful of vegetables and a poor excuse for a breast of chicken. The presentation was incredibly poor and the food was lukewarm at best. Not to mention the brownie and ice...cream I got for desert which tasted like it’d been bought around the corner at Tesco despite charging a hefty price for a takeaway. I’ve sat in at this establishment before and enjoyed my experience. They seem to have seriously dropped the ball since the start of this pandemic. Do not reccomend.More

Don’t go to this restaurant as it is not Covid compliant. On arrival we both had our phones out ready with our Covid certs. We were not asked to produce the Covid certs at any stage. We ordered a drink at the table and then...noticed the owner wearing a pink shirt swanning around the restaurant all night with no mask on. If we hadn’t ordered our food and drink we would have left and probably should have too. I am appalled at the lack of Covid standards and feel the restaurant needs to be reported to the food safety authority. While seated a family sat at a table beside us and were then reseated elsewhere. However their first table wasn’t cleaned or sanitised at all. You have to question the overall Covid standards. While paying the bill we mentioned our concerns especially the owner walking around without a mask and the response was oh he’s the owner and he’s fully vaccinated!! We could couldn’t get out of there quick enough.More
