Description: The new generation of Ponti's Italian Kitchen was established in 1963. The Ponti family originates from Piacenza in the Emilia Romagna region of Italy, and are passionate and committed to the exceptional food of the region. Dishes are simply prepared using the freshest quality ingredients, with a generation's twist on traditional classics. Provenance is a key part of the menu, with several dishes denoted with the DOP logo, the official mark which certifies that the products are genuine speciality products from the region. So, the Parma Ham is from Parma and nowhere else. Ponti's Italian Kitchen is proud to receive the Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence award 2012 & 2013, for consistently achieving outstanding traveller reviews on TripAdvisor. Approximately 10 percent of restaurants listed on TripAdvisor receive this prestigious award that honours hospitality excellence.

We recently visited this place for breakfast and it was gorgeous! The breakfast was a great size and good quality! The service was good and the place is lovely, with a nice, relaxed atmosphere. The prices were reasonable and definitely worth it for what you get, would recommend this place!

I constantly dine in varied restaurants throughout London and I've got to say this particular Pontis has got to be one of my favourites. From the welcoming service at the front door until you leave is amazing. The food has a wide selection from scallops to pizza and tastes wonderfully fresh, whilst you have drinks from iced coffee with syrup... More

We stopped by for an early dinner and enjoyed the 3 course menu for a reasonable price. The food was good, atmosphere was nice and the service was great.

Lovely modern restaurant with friendly staff. Pizzas were perfect size. Atmosphere was relaxed for a Saturday evening and staff were attentive and weren't rushing around. Would visit again.

me and my girlfriend was made to feel very uncomfortable on entry. It was very awkward. No one had approached us, instead was directed to sit from far with a loud voice. When ready to order, food was explained aggressively and unclear, which made us feel uncomfortable. We also saw the waitress roll her eyes as she was taking back... More

I travel down to London regularly on business and always go in search of a nice authentic home cooked place for dinner where as a female travelling alone I won't feel out of place. This place is perfect if you are shopping on Oxford Street/marble arch. It is in duke street opposite Selfridges and offers great homemade food at reasonable... More

We were looking for a break from pub food and really enjoyed our dinner. Just off of Oxford Street, we jumped in a taxi from our hotel. Spaghetti Carbonara was very good, had a few starters that were nice as well. Kids menu. Casual, relaxed spot with no effort to speed us along. Other diners seemed to be a mix... More

Located in the narrow street opposite huge BHS building, this restaurant is always busy, noisy and friendly like true Italian one. Service is fast, and the food is delicious. If you feel that waiters are arrogant, keep calm - this is a part of the service, and at some point of time they will smile to you generously when you... More

Excellent, reasonably priced food & good wine in this excellent little restaurant. The service is fast, efficient & friendly, a few seconds walk down a side street off Oxford St, minutes away from Oxford St tube station. Well worth a visit.
