About Il Ponte Ristorante Italiano

Our History

The owners of Il Ponte have more than 20 years' experience in all aspects of the Italian restaurant trade, from behind the scenes to front of house. Talented and experienced chefs, friendly and hospitable hosts, they have worked in Italian restaurants both large and small, in Bristol and London.

When they were looking to open their own restaurant they chanced upon a wonderful opportunity. They saw the premises, fell in love with the beautiful waterside setting, and knew that it was the perfect location for their new venture.

Our Setting

Bradford-on-Avon is a lovely Wiltshire market town. Steeped in centuries of history, the town attracts many tourists and visitors, but it is a really thriving local community. This is one of the reasons that the owners chose the town; they want to become a part of this community.

When they first saw the premises, nestling on the banks of the glorious River Avon, they immediately decided that it was the perfect setting for their Italian restaurant. All of the team at Il Ponte look forward to welcoming you to their new venture, which has been refurbished to a superb standard and can seat up to 60 diners.

Our Philosophy

We believe that traditional Italian food is simply the best! Our menus are inspired by our many years' experience and a love of all of the different regions of Italy. Our passion is for the freshest of food, and quality ingredients. We insist on the best, fresh meat and all of our fish is landed daily in Cornwall and delivered to us the very next morning.

We have a wide ranging menu, from super starter, magnificent mains through to delicious desserts. Why not pop in and give us a try? You'll be so glad that you did!
