The pizza was authentic Italian. Very light. Mussels and Calamari were great appetizers. Def going to return. Plenty of parking on Coral Way. Very impressed with service. Gotta try the lemon cake for dessert. Felt at home and casual atmosphere.

The food was just okay and nothing to brag about. I think it was in the higher end price point for Italian food. $12 for a cesar salad that was just okay isn’t worth it. Also, their pumpkin ravioli tasted like soap.

The only complaint was that the staff did not remove the used flute glasses from a Prosecco bottle we had ordered and consumed. Additionally, we ordered two additional bottles of wine, and were not offered fresh glasses and were pouring the wine ourselves. The red wine might benefit from a cooler since the wines on the wine list are bold and the food is bold. As to these details, the service would require some improvement particularly if the customers have consumed wine by bottles. Otherwise, we had a great end to the week and would return.

Let's start with the ambiance. The music is a great mix of older songs (think '70's-'90's), redone in a loungey remix. Very nice. Rodrigo, the manager, is very helpful, and eager to please. The ambiance is very comfortable. The service impeccable- from the hostess, to the busboys, to the waiters. Now- to the most important part...the FOOD. The octopus special is like nothing I've ever had. Honestly the best octopus I've ever had. The Neapolitan pizza is absolutely true to Italian pizza...and I know. I have been to Italy as I had family that lived there for 13 years. The Rigatoni Bolognese is fantastic, as is the Chicken Parmesan. The Chicken alla Nona is a mouthgasm. Even the mashed potatoes (something I NEVER eat) were creamy deliciousness. The fettuccine seafood special is enough for two people and is wonderful! The plan is to come back and try every single thing on this menu!

Overall I enjoyed my meal at PV. We ordered the fried calamari appetizer which was good. I order the calzone for dinner which was tasty, however the dough around the edges was not cooked.

Service was ok. Have to ask for things.
Music was way too loud with guitarist.
Small area needs to be acoustic to enjoy the guitarist.
Pizza was the best. Calamari incredible.

The food was outstanding, it’s a great restaurant. The only issue I found was the corkage fee that was too high at $25 per bottle.

This whole experience was subpar from beginning to end. We waited more than 10 minutes just to get our menus. Then, my mom asked to order the Hawaiian pizza (which was under the New York style) as a napoletano pizza and the waiter told us it would be 28 dollars instead of the original price of 14 JUST to have it made on the different type of dough. Then, my dad was stuck between two pastas and the waiter said they could do half of each. However, when my dad received the check, they had charged him for BOTH pastas when he had only received HALF of each. The service was super slow. The pumpkin ravioli was too sweet. All around, this experience was terrible and I do not recommend this restaurant to anyone.

On Valentine’s Day, my date & I were not seated until over half an hour after our reservation. We then waited another hour for our food before we decided to finally leave and cut our losses.

I’m not sure what the dining experience is like on a slow night, but I highly recommend you steer clear of this establishment for special occasions and holidays.

Food and ambience were good. Watch out for the bait and switch with the House wine. Waiter touted it - think it was an Argentine Merlot - and said it was $11.95. A bargain. Changed to $30 on the bill. Two of three at our table remembered wait the waiter said but he denied it later. We won’t be back.

I never made it to Ponte Vechio. I booked the reservation with Open Table for a New Year's late dinner, and then received a voicemail on my phone from a manager saying that the restaurant was closed that day. I had to scramble around to find another place for that night. Now I am wondering, was it Open Table, or the restaurant that messed this up? How could open table book a reservation on a day the place is closed?

I must say, my wife and I were a little skeptical.

We were at the real thing in May, Florence Italy.

We literally live 3 minutes away from this restaurant. Just a true neighborhood gem!

If you have not been, you need to try.
My wife and I were very satisfied.

Will return soon.
