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.

My boyfriend had read reviews on this restaurant beforehand so we were looking forward to our meal. And we weren't disappointed. Tables were spaced out perfectly at the back, but the tables near the door were... More

This was truly an amazing restaurant, the food was amazing and the staff very friendly. I was surprised how tasty the food was, considering the prices. It tasted like italian food should taste, and we had to come back after our first visit to the restaurant. I truly recommend this place for people who are looking for good food and... More

The menu is extensive with something for everyone whether you want just a snack or full blown meal. An excellent two course meal for two with a bottle of excellent Rose wine & coffee for... More

Great fare at a very reasonable price. I discovered I enjoy many italian dishes I didn't know of. Try the Capri Salad....incredible! Location is perfect just across from Selfridge's and Oxford shopping, atmosphere is quaint. If you're going to London stop and try it, you'll be back....I know I do every time I am in London!

Outstanding quality of food, very nice place, great atmosphere and above all excellent service. We were served by Peter, and we only can recommend that you visit the restaurant for an outstanding meal. We are from Belgium and thus by default like excellent food. You will love the location and the service :-)

We stopped at Pizza hut but after waiting for almost 20 mins nobody was taking our order and we were disappointed and left. We saw this small homely restaurant. It looked like it was being runned by a family. We were treated well and... More
