This was my first visit to this revamped Italian restaurant and was just a Saturday night out. On arrival it was obvious it was popular as our table was the only empty one. We were shown to our table and were immediately presented with menus and advised of the evening specials. The atmosphere was warm and inviting and the host... More

After reading some good reviews we thought we would try this restaurant. As we walked in, very busy, always a good sign. Ambience was dreadful at night- bright lights and no music. One chap serving who was run off his feet and not very friendly. Food was ok but nothing special. Toilets are basic outside facilities, would not fancy going... More

Had another super meal at Ponte Vechio, beautiful Italian food and served piping hot. I do agree with previous review that toilets could do with an overhaul and maybe some background music, candles to create a great atmosphere. Extremely popular restaurant and always full.

An absolute gem of a place, so pleased we found Ponte Vecchio. We went last night for the first time and it certainly won't be our last. Not only was the food first class but the atmosphere was fabulous. I would advise booking a table as it's a very popular place and deservedly so. It's wonderful to find somewhere that's... More

We really enjoyed our evening dinner at Ponte Vecchio in Hereford. This visit ( our first) included very good plates of food from delicious pasta, perfectly cooked fish and stunning shin of beef. Home made deserts were another delight. Excellent friendly, hospitality and a relaxed atmosphere were other highlights. Can't wait to go again to try the other lovely things... More

Simple decor makes the restaurant very relaxing and authentic. The menu is full of beautiful dishes to accommodate all dietary requirements, with classic dishes such as carbonara mixed in with original creations. Great wine list and dessert selection. Would highly recommend!

Visiting Hereford for the weekend with friends, we found this place on trip advisor and booked. We weren't disappointed, the couple run restaurant is a nice change from the run of the mill Italian restaurants. They serve simple food cooked to perfection with amazing flavours. Considering the owner was the only waiter whilst his wife was the only cook and... More

We visited the restaurant on a Tuesday night and were glad that we had booked as it got quite busy later on. The menu, though not large, contained a number of interesting dishes and not just the usual standards. The food was excellent, as was the service. We would happily eat here again.

I've had the pleasure of dining at Ponte Vecchio for years now and the quality of food and service has never diminished. Ponte is very small restaurant with a host who is exceptionally passionate about Italy and Food (And Fiorentina) and this is really felt in the way he serves. The food is incredibly authentic and cooked brilliantly, a pleasure... More
