Very hectic and busy

On your marks, get set, GO!!! A truly hectic restaurant. Staff zooming about at speed all the time. We felt they were keen to get you in - eat - out. Having said that thr food was very good and tasty. As mentioned before it is a favourite with the locals and is always busy.

Il Ponte was packed! Felt as though we had stumbled across an authentic family restaurant. Set under the bridge in Recco, a little bit back from the beach. We had a lovely, friendly waitress who explained the specials for the evening on the blackboard.Started with the focaccia formaggio which was delicious and the mains were excellent as well. Really enjoyed... More

I have been going for years at Il Ponte, to eat Focaccia (always great), very good pizza, and some interesting fish dishes. I rewrite to say that I had Milanese Cutlet last time, I craved for it, not the typical dish you ask in a seaside city like Recco. Well, I was surprised. The cutlets were amazing. Perfect slice of...

When you drive into Recco from the Autostrada this restaurant is very easy to find because it's right next to one of the few areas you can park easily in Recco and in the shadow of the massive railway bridge. It's a pretty standard pizza place with very good quality pizza served fast. If you are arriving in Recco and... More

Very good quality food and pizzas in nice - albeit a bit hectic - atmosphere. The downside is a very quick turnover, you are hurried into deciding your meal and the waiters hurry around in a rather hectic manner, leaving the impression that the meal has to be terminated quickly in order to ensure more business.

This is first of all, by it's name, a pizzeria but the pizza's were just o.k. and nothing more. we had much better pizza at other places in Italy. The salads, however, was fresh and good and the Tiramisu we had for dessert was quite nice. The price was reasonable.

We loved this place. Noisy, atmospheric, full of locals, good simple food freshly prepared and quickly served. At least that's our experience. We were recommended it by our hosts on our first night and ate there another 3 times. We don't do that very often. No place will hit the spot every time, but this one became our go-to for... More

Won't be going back any time soon. Wanted to have a nice dinner, due to my husbands health, very disappointing service. We weren't eating pizza, we had a 3 course meal.
