Great italian fare, a little pricey on the wine list but good food nonetheless. service was friendly and they accommodated us well even though we were very late in arrival (due to Canton fair)

Situated in a weird street, in the back corner of the hotel, this restaurant is discret and good...
The Americano was good and strong, the wine list ok but strange not out of this world!!!
The Pizza guy was good and the white pizza was good (truffle and mozza!).
Carpaccio and tiger prawns also very tasty.
La pasta to die for (seafood pasta here is huge)
We have found some sands in the vongolle but it was fresh one...
The turbo was so good and light very healthy...
For the dessert we were full but the Chef has offered us one...Italian gesture we guess...
Coffee were ok but not super...
We have order some grappa and left happy and content but not extatic...
The waitress were so helpfull that i am still wondering if we were in the heart of Guangzhou that night...
A team well balance serving respectable dishes...not intrusive and efficient...
Thank you elvis, candice and elaine for your great service and sense of hospitality...
Negative point, the atmosphere and vue doesn't match with the service and quality of food (meat is not good not tender)...
Try if you are in this part of town unless you have a lot of standing restaurant in better area of the city.
Thank you for the limoncino...

A treasure to find an authentic Italian restaurant in China. The manager David, could not have been nicer. He knows restaurants, people and wine. What a great combination. After eating there for almost ten nights in a row, I now consider him a friend. The assistant manager, Will , was also perfect. She remembered my food preferences (picky American) , and made sure I always had enough Parmigiano-Reggiano. What a nice group of people, to take care of me on my first visit to China. When I'm back there, I'll be staying at the Hilton, and eating at IL Ponte. Thanks guys, Howard

Restaurant manager should learn to drop bookings and make sure that all tables booked are served on time with correct food ordered! Our first exprience was so so, but our last one in April was over the top of the bad memories.
I am not giving them any more chances, sorry!

Really enjoyed the simple menu. I've eaten at Il Ponte around 10 times now. Only had poor quality food once. Fish and meats are fresh. Mixed salad was wonderful. Bread starter is a little underwhelming - typical sliced bread sampler. Wine list is small but suitable - they could be a little more generous on the glass pour! ha ha

Service depends on the staff. My last visit was fantastic service. Attentive but not hovering. Knowledgeable about the dishes and wines...

Prices are a little high, but this is a 4-5 star Western hotel...

Room is well lit, maybe too well lit. No romance. No ambience. No view.

Worth a visit if you are staying in the hotel. Not sure if I'd go out of my way unless I was a hotel guest...
