    We enjoyed a delicious dinner on their lovely patio. The food was so good. We enjoyed it thoroughly. Our only complaint was the wait staff that kept forgetting things we had ordered like more wine or the dessert menu. But other than that it was a great evening.

    Nice service when we arrived, but after our waiter brought our main course plates, we never saw him again. No one came to ask us if we wanted something else to drink or dessert. We had to go see our waiter to have our bill. Very disappointed with the service!

    My friend and I love the food, the wine list, the enthusiastic staff at Il Ponte. We always prefer to eat outdoors, but the sounds of the nearby Don Valley are louder than we would like. If that is an issue, eat inside the beautifully appointed restaurant.

    We had dinner on a very quiet and covered patio. It was wonderful! The staff, ambiance and most importantly the food were great! We were celebrating a birthday and server brought out a cake with candle which was very much appreciated. I am glad they survived Covid. I will definitely be back!
