We have been here before and will try to return. We started with the butternut squash soup. It was delicious as well as the bread which accompanied it. Our entrees were so good and the service was great. You can park in the lot behind the restaurant or on the busy street in front.

We were looking for a new place to experience with a friend and are very happy that other TripAdvisor members had recommend Ponte Vecchio. It's a smallish restaurant with about 10 tables inside, and several more outside, but the color scheme and size make for a friendly, intimate experience. The wait staff was attentive without being overbearing, and the food... More

My husband and I had a hard time finding this little place but it was well worth it. The food was wonderful and we ate outside on the patio by candlelight. I had no complaints but my husband thought he could have used a bigger helping. We had just finished golfing and he was hungry. I, on the other hand,... More

Barones changed hands a couple years ago. The excellent Trattorria Ponte Vecchio is now in this location. My ratings are based on the current operation.

A lovely little restaurant with a very friendly staff. It was busy and the service a bit slow. The servers were very pleasant and the food was prepared well and delicious.

We found Trattoria Ponte Vecchio through the recommendation of a friend. We were very pleasantly surprised. I am not a big fan of Italian restaurants as I have been to so many that do it poorly, but Trattoria was a real exception. The location on Carmel Valley Road is unassuming, but once inside, the host, the server and the ambience... More

Based on the previous glowing rewiews I guess my expectations were too high, but I did not think this food was "just like eating in a Tuscan Kitchen." It was very decent Italian food though. We ordered an eggplant appetizer that we both really thought had come from the freezer and was barely warmed through. Next we had salads and... More

Delizioso! What a great find. The food was delicious. I highly recommend this restaurant for excellent Italian food. Try to get a seat out on the patio.
