Pontefino's Italian Restaurant (Gunthorpe, Nottingham) Reviews
Newest Review: ... couldnt help wondering where you would wait if it was raining. The bar area was overcrowded with people eating at tables so it couldnt be used as a meeting area or to have a drink at before you go to your table. As an overall review, we would not recommend this restaurant. The waiter we had (we affectionately named him elvis) was nice enough to start with but when we didnt want to order wine from the wine list became abrupt and didnt seem interested in serving us after that. We had to ask for plates for our starters which we were sharing, there were long delays between courses and then 2 main meals were brought out while the other 2 to... more

We went to Pontefino's last night and had a lovely meal. The service was prompt, the food very good and the surroundings very nice. It appears the restaurant has been decorated/renovated/well cleaned as the whole place was looking well presented, clean and stylish. Our waiters were attentive, smart and courteous. The food it self was great, very tasty, nicely presented and a notch up on other Italians I have been too. The prices cater for a wide budget as starters range from £4.50 to £7.00+, main course's are from £8.00 to £17.00 and desserts I am unsure about as we didn't order. Overall I would recommend this place and I look forward to returning in the summer so the location can be appreciated.

A group of 4 of us visited this restaurant, a table wasn't ready for us as they said we had only booked for 2, not 4. Obviously, we would only book for 2 when 4 of us were coming. We were asked to wait outside on the decking area as there was no room to wait inside the restaurant. Luckily the weather was ok that night, but we couldnt help wondering where you would wait if it was raining. The bar area was overcrowded with people eating at tables so it couldnt be used as a meeting area or to have a drink at before you go to your table.

Six of us went to this restaurant for a meal on a Saturday evening in November 2009. When we arrived we were kept hanging around in reception for about 15 minutes despite being on time. We weren't even "allowed" to order drinks! Eventually we got our table. My starter of vegetables in a tomato sauce was OK but my companions were all disappointed in their choices. The main courses were terrible - all of them! My Veal Milanese could have been anything - the veal was paper thin but the breadcrumb topping was thick and greasy so that's all I could taste. A Rib-Eye steak was ordered medium-rare but was well done, two pizzas were both soggy, a spaggheti dish was greasy and the seabass was grey and tasteless. All in all absolutely terrible and none of us will be going back.

myself and three other guests visited this restaurant very recently and was quite pleased with first impressions, food was excellent but felt that the staff wanted you in and out in a quick a time as possible as there was only a short space of time between first and second course. We only had a choice of bottled drinks as the pumps were out of action, so opted for a bottle of house wine and soft drink. Restaurant was very nicely set out but felt was missing something for the windows as it felt quite bare and cold without anything. As i mentioned earlier food was excellent, but we found in one of the puddings we had there was a large piece ... Read the complete review
