Excellent all around. Food was great. Our server was nice but lost her focus at the end of the night which had us waiting for our bill too long. Probably just a one off, she was nice. I would highly recommend this restaurant!

Pure Honest Italian Food with integrity and purity. Food is honest, pure and tasty. The room is spacious with modern flair. A great addition to the neighbourhood. A warm hospitable welcome. Despite there being 2 Italian Confirmation parties of 30 each and a 50th birthday party of 20 more, we were welcomed and well taken care of. If the Italians are coming here be assured of the food

My fiance and I went to Il Ponte for Valentine's day dinner and it was DELICIOUS! To start we shared their Rucola salad (that had arugula, figs and freshly shredded parm - yum!) and their chickpea floured calamari (a MUST try). As our main entree we had the Americana pizza which was amazing! As an added bonus they had a promotion for Valentine's for dessert being on them, so we got the Tiramisu that pretty much melted in our mouths! I have 0 complaints about my service and food and would go back in a heartbeat!

Funky decor, good food. But the service was very slow - 40 minutes after sitting down, I had to ask for an update on where our wine was, and we only had the table bread by then. My husband was on the verge of being very rude to the waitress. We probably would have had two bottles of wine, but didn't end up having the time. It also took forever to be brought the dessert menu and the bill...

My husband and I had an incredible dinner at Il Ponte restaurant! Very excited that it's local, and we can't wait to go back! Matt, our waiter, made the experience even that much better! Next time, hopefully we won't be seated right by the door, but all in all it was a wonderful experience! The food was absolutely delicious!

Food was good, but not outstanding. It's hard to make something fascinating from Italian food, so a pass there. Caesar salad was passable - dressing was not tangy enough, kind of bland. Service was marginal. Friendly and all, but inattentive. Restaurant was not busy, but we still had to get up and ask for our bill at the end of the meal.

This was by far our best meal in Toronto. Not only was the food amazing (the closest thing to Italy we have tasted in the states) but the service was incredible as well. This family run restaurant made us feel like we were at home!

Best Restaurants Near Pan Am Athletes' Village in Toronto

Il Ponte has one of the best views of the Athletes' Village, from either inside the glass walled dining room or out on the spacious patio looking west from the east side of the River Street Bridge. Between that, a fantastic wine list and homemade Italian fare that includes gluten free options (Calamari Fritti $16, for instance, is dusted in chickpea flour), you’re set.

New restaurants creating a buzz in Toronto's east end

New restaurants creating a buzz in Toronto's east end

Nestled on the corner of Queen and Davies Avenue, and overlooking the Don Valley River, Il Ponte not only has one of the best views of the city’s skyline, but it also boasts some of the classiest decor and most delectable Italian fare on the east side. Choose from made-in-house antipasti and daily gluten-free pasta options, and pair it with some top-notch vino from the resto’s impressive wine list. For dessert, treat yourself to a creme caramel (as if you could resist). Hot top: Il Ponte is a more formal option, excellent for a dressy night out in Riverside.
