Back again to one of our favorites. Try the artichoke lasagne and the dhrimp scampi. The Aperol spritzer is new and great. Happy Hour is a bargain and ends at 6

Indoor and outdoor seating in a cozy home style environment - off the beaten path but easy to get to - one of the best calamari appetizers I've had - will go back again ...

Small neighborhood restaurant. Cozy atmosphere. Food was very good. Loved the eggplant parmigiana. Servers are family and made the whole experience very pleasant. They have indoor and outdoor seating. The only drawback is the parking. Behind the restaurant usually full. We parked on side street.

We got the lasagna and the lobster ravioli. The food was hot, which is very important to me, but it was just ok. Nothing exceptional. The server was very friendly and very attentive, she deserves a 5. Nice atmosphere.

OK, so one typically does not order a burger when dining in an Italian restaurant, especially a nice authentic one like Trattoria Ponte Vecchio. But their menu offers something called "The Impossible Burger". Our young waitress said it's entirely a meat-free burger made from plant...More

PV serves authentic Italian food with a touch of New York Style flavor. In addition to the daily specials, you will find some amazing signature chicken, seafood, vegan, Gluten free and vegetarian dishes. Don't forget to look at the Calzone and Pizza section of the menu.
