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 ... more

We have enjoyed so many wonderful evenings in the past at this venue but after visiting tonight we will not be returning. our ttable was booked for 7pm, we were told to take a seat outside and a waiter would be along to take a drinks order as the dining table was not yet ready. 30 mins later a drinks order was given and 30 mins later the drinks order arrived. After a further wait we asked if the table was available and eventually was shown to a table. The ordered food arrived some two hours after our table was booked. One of our guests received their French fries 10 mins. after their meal arrived. The staff were un-friendly and certainly not organised. Total disappointing evening which cost hard earned money being wasted. No return for us or our friends who were visiting for the first time.

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.
