The Il Ponte was near the Palace Hotel where we were staying prior to our cruise. It has received pretty good reviews in TripAdvisor so we gave it a try. The food was very good, though expensive vs the USA. It is a small place (maybe 30 people). The service was very good and we enjoyed talking to the waitress... More

A small doorway leading off the street takes you to a candlelit restaurant seating about 30 people. Friendly and helpful staff. Good choice of food. We had the bruschetta which had very flavoursome tomato. We asked for the seafood pasta without cream and despite being full at the time this was no problem. Plenty full portions of pasta. The Carna... More

Yummy, cute, romantic, delicious. Our party of four all tried the pasta and left so happy. This little 'find' is a nice quiet contrast to the tourist squares of Copenhagen. And a good value!

Well hidden behind the courthouse, we found this little Italian eatery. The food was good and at an affordable price. Service was very friendly and welcoming . Will definitely return one day

Found this place on a wander round Copenhagen and after looking for alternatives came back for an evening meal. Although the restaurant was small, there were seats for us and the food was delicious as was the house red, which was surprisingly good. The whole meal was good value (well for Copenhagen, anyway) and I'm happy to recommend it.

Just around the corner from the Palace Hotel where we were staying, we happened on this restaurant. Being full inside and a small queue waiting were good signs. Small restaurant serving familiar Italian dishes. My friend was totally delighted with veal escalope though I thought my salmon was not quite fully cooked nor prepared. All in all, rather basic in...

Il Ponte was a lively little restaurant and it was full of locals, which to me is always a good sign. The food was excellent, and the prices particularly reasonable for Copenhagen. Many of these other reviews are dated and certainly don't reflect our experience. We had a lovely bottle of Pinot Grigio and both had Lasagna. The serving sizes... More

We had tried to book this place online but no one replied to our email. The prices are cheap here: our bill for two came to about £30 for one course and a couple of drinks. However, the restaurant itself was badly in need of a redecoration. The walls and carpet were really dirty in particular. Had the food been... More

I came to Copenhagen for one day and went to have dinner there with a colleague thinking about good Italian food. Pasta was just ok but when we were about to pay we were told that foreign cards were not accepted and we needed to pay in cash. I never carry DK (Denmark is developed enough to accept credit cards...
