Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We had a brilliant time visiting here mid week. Such a friendly waiter (and owner!) doing the front of house with a lovely atmosphere. The food was delicious (best meal I’ve had in ages) and everything was so thoughtful. Hand written menu options and authentic...Italian option which were very well priced including the wine. Can’t wait to visit again.More

Our first time at Ponte Vecchio and definitely not our last. From start to finish we had the most amazing experience and some of the best Italian food we’ve ever had (and we’ve been to Rome). The husband and wife that run this restaurant obviously...put a lot of pride in their business and it shows. We had the tiramisu for dessert and it was the best we’ve ever had. We can’t stop talking about that tiramisu!More

One of the best Italians I’ve had! The staff were excellent and the food was beyond words. Made me wish I lived in Hereford and wasn’t just visiting. Would definitely recommend.

The freshest pasta I've ever had. The owner encourages you to order from the online menu the day before as they make the pasta to order; you can really tell. It was so tasty. Also, the dessert was lovely; again made by the chef herself....Shame I live no where near or I would be going often.More

Great Italian . Booked in advance of a short first time visit to Hereford. Glad we booked as it was very busy early on a Tuesday evening. A relatively small menu to choose from but thats not a negative. Everything prepared fresh just for you...is the thing here. The Bresaola starter was superb. Lite and flavourful. The mains of Belly Pork Stew and the Beef Paccheri were well received. The stew hit the spot on a cold windy December night. The Fiano , Mandrarossa wine was also light and fresh . I lived in Hereford I would surely be back to try out more from the menu. Thank you to Leo and Alice for producing a small part of Italy for a couple of hours of wonderful food. Cheers, David & SandraMore

We visited this restaurant whilst we were staying in Hereford. Although the restaurant decor is certainly nothing to talk about, the food was amazing. Certainly not a typical Italian restaurant, the husband and wife team that owns and runs the restaurant turn out the most...delicious food you will ever taste. Be sure to visit, if you can get a booking. They seem to be booked up weeks in advance and at that I’m not surprised.More

We have eaten here a couple of times & cannot recommend it highly enough. The food is absolutely fantastic & there is plenty of it. The front of house service is amazing & he is on his own & does a brilliant job. It is...very reasonably priced considering the standard of the food produced & like I say I would definitely recommend giving it a go.More

What a lovely find, a small husband and wife run restaurant serving beautiful Italian food which was unique and miles apart from the usual meals you get in larger restaurants. It was like eating at your grandmothers. The taste combinations were excellent and all produced...by Alice in her kitchen. Leo was an excellent and attentive host front of house. Starter portions were large so be warned!More

The food and service at this independent restaurant are both outstanding. I cannot fault it. They are very flexible for vegetarians and vegans, providing vegetarian options of most of their menu. This time I had apricots with Gorgonzola (do not hesitate) - the best Gorgonzola...I have ever had. The pasta was outstanding, they didn’t have pancetta so made with sausage. Again, best sausage I have ever had. Afrrogato for dessert, which is now my new favourite thing. Leo is a lovely host and his wife Alice who does the cooking is a genius. I had the house white, and it was excellent. Go, do not hesitate! I would go back to Hereford just to go there again! This was my second time, and I cannot wait to go back again.More

Truly amazing. We came thinking this might be decent but it is genuinely one of the best restaurants I have been to for many years. The food you get is so tasty, imaginative and well presented. It is even incredible value. Hereford is lucky to...have this place. Anyone going anywhere near Hereford would be well served to book ahead and just go to Ponte Vecchio.More
