Very disappointed with our experience at Il Ponte. I tried to book a new spot to celebrate my wife's birthday with hopes of finding a gem. It's rare that we have a night out and I was trying to make it a special one. When we arrived the hostess was pleasant but not overly friendly. I had mentioned on the reservation that it was a birthday celebration, but no mention was made by the staff. No menu specials were offered, no description of any of the menu items or recommendations etc.
Our caesar salad appetizers were very good, but when our entrees arrived, my wife's spaghetti alla carbonara di pesce pasta was very, very salty. To the restaurant's credit, the owner was very gracious and brought her a freshly cooked meal that was seasoned less aggressively. My meal the pollo con salsa di porcini was tasty but not exceptional. We ended up sharing it while waiting for my wife's meal to arrive.
All in all, the atmosphere is nice, this a good place for a conversation with drinks or a romantic evening. We were disappointed in the food (not memorable) and to an extent the service, with the exception of the Owner. While we probably won't be back, hopefully other patrons will have a better experience.
