Interesting and 'different' Italian menu. Excellent starters and puddings.My wife's fish main was very good and my chicken dish was very tasty BUT it was the toughest, chewiest bit of chicken I've ever eaten. I left half of it. Losses a star for that and losses another one for the lack of interest or response when I commented on the... More

They managed to fit us in at short notice. The staff were very confident and obliging wherever required. The menu was the new spring menu and was actually rather confusing with many items we did not know what they were but the staff were helpful in explaining. Not your standard Italian with no pizzas or lasagne in sight. The food... More

Lovely family run italian trattoria with the very welcoming husband running front of house and his wife running the kitchen. They specialise in authentic tasting italian dishes but with a selection of interesting ingredient combinations, beautiful flavours and perfect seasoning. We ate at the Ponte Vecchio on our first night in Hereford and we're so impressed that we booked for... More

My wife booked to celebrate my youngest son's 21st birthday. Our party of nine were overwhelmed by the standard of cooking, the efficient service and honest ambience of the restaurant. We were made most welcome by the owner and his team and felt genuinely touched by the authenticity of the restaurant. Some of our party are gluten intolerant and they... More

We decided to go to this restaurant one evening after recommendations from other couples. On entry I didn't know what to make of the place and it is very understated but we were greeted warmly and taken to a table. Service was quick for both drinks and food (even though the person waiting on us seemed a little flustered on... More

We went to this small but perfectly formed family run Italian restaurant on the 30 December with friends. We live in Wales but visit Hereford all the time as my husband is originally from Hereford. We all had the most marvellous meals. Each one different but each one as stunning as the other and the sauces - OMG I have... More

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.
