This restaurant is really no more than a basic cafe serving really good food. The tables are very close together and a little cramped but the service was friendly and efficient. The food however was sublime, delicious pasta in a beautiful sauce made for a delightful evening.

We ate here as it was close to our hotel and we saw lots of good reviews. The food was excellent and the house wine was delicious. The staff were very friendly despite it being very busy! We didn't reserve a table and were able to slot in just before it got really busy!

Once again, thank you to our fellow reviewers :) once we got to our hotel nearby, we searched for a restaurant after a hectic day and Pontini popped up. Actually we stopped by the previous evening but arriving half an hour after they opened the only option would have been to wait for an hour at the least for a... More

The staff are friendly and great. My meal was delicious. I tried the seafood route, and I wasn't disappointed. The cod stuffed ravioli was amazing. They also had a few good wines to pair with my meal as well. If you find yourself in this corner of Venice, I recommend stopping by here.

We visited the restaurant without reservation and were immediately shown to a table. It was a "service with a smile" experience where you immediately feel welcomed and at home. We took a delicious lasagna as a starter, which tasted as truly homemade. Same holds for the main course. And for dessert they offered the homemade tiramisu, the best tiramisu that... More

Local setting alongside busy canal path with a view of the bridge. Also ate inside,a busy small restaurant with simple reasonably priced food. Staff were friendly and service was well paced but not rushed. Meat lasagne was lovely and tiramisu rich. Carafe of red wine cheap and fruity All in all very pleasant and enjoyable after hours of walking.

Everything was very fresh and tasty. Our server was attentive and made sure our needs were met promptly. The ambience was nice - the restaurant is... More

Pontini was just opposite our hotel and we headed there for dinner after reading all the positive reviews of it on TripAdvisor. We were very happy with our dinner. We had to wait about 5-8 minutes while a table was paying their dinner and the waitress got it ready for us. We were lucky because after we were seated, there... More
