A riverside restaurant from the D&D London group which sits along the Thames, Cantina del Ponte is a fun and buzzy Italian restaurant that welcomes group dining bookings, as well as being available for exclusive hire.
Open for both lunch and dinner, Cantina del Ponte accepts group reservations of between 10 and 45 diners, boasting a wide selection of catering options to suit both personal and corporate occasions - think everything from milestone birthday dinners and family reunions to business dinners and product launches.
It would be a shame not to make use of Cantina del Ponte’s charming terrace which overlooks Tower Bridge, so why not begin your event with a relaxed drinks reception on the terrace, where you can toast with a glass of Prosecco and nibble on Italian-style canapes. During the warmer summer months, full-length doors are left open to really bring the outside in and create that alfresco dining feel.
Cantina del Ponte is a versatile and flexible space, which offers bespoke packages for group dining reservations, including the option to enjoy interactive workshops such as pasta and pizza making; classes can start at either 10.30am or 4pm and your package includes a three-course meal. This kind of immersive experience is perfect for a team-building day with the office, or as a fun idea for your stag or hen party.
The menu at Cantina del Ponte is divided up into the traditional Italian format of antipasti, primi, secondi, contorni and dolci, with Italian cuisines naturally lending itself to being served family-style (perfect for group reservations). Highlights from the menu include seafood linguine with squid, prawns and mussels, and veal milanese with tomato salad. Desserts are just as tempting, with classic Italian puddings such as tiramisu and panna cotta featured. There are plenty of Italian wines and cocktails too.
