Birmingham’s Moseley is in for a treat when it comes to classically-structured Italian dining. Ponte Di Legno welcomes diners into a family-run, neighbourhood ristorante along Woodbridge Road, where they can indulge in traditionally presented Italian dishes that range over antipasti, secondi piatti (pizza, pasta, meat and poultry dishes), seafood starters and primi piatti mains, bruschetta and salads, and delectable desserts. From start to finish, this is traditional Italian dining at its best.
Food was amazing, service abit slow at times and sometimes it seemed like the bigger tables got priority over the tables with less guests on. Was extremely busy but the atmosphere was lively. All in all a pleasant experience
Always a friendly welcome at Ponte Di Legno, the staff really make you feel valued and are always willing to accommodate any requests. Great food, great service and always a relaxed and enjoyable evening.
The food and the service were both fantastic, it was quiet as we went on a Sunday night but it gets very busy so would recommend booking. The lobster ravioli and the steak were both great.
Vegetarian antipasti head up the list at Birmingham’s Ponte Di Legno. Classics such as minestrone, insalata di caprino (a deliciously dressed goats’ cheese salad), funghi al fredo (mushrooms baked in garlic butter, cream and cheese), and marinata di legumi (a platter of marinated and chargrilled aubergine, courgette, and peppers with mozzarella and sundried tomatoes) are all tempting, and green, ways to begin your traditional Italian feast at this Woodbridge Road, Moseley restaurant. Needless to say, there are options for more omnivorous appetites, too.
Turning to the secondi piatti selection, diners will delight in a huge range of pasta dishes created according to traditional recipes, using only the freshest ingredients. Seafood is writ large at Ponte Di Legno, with dishes such as tagliolini alla pescatora – thin pasta with monkfish, fresh mussels, and calamari served in a light tomato and lobster sauce – typifying the offering at this Moseley neighbourhood restaurant. Even more maritime delicacies are to be found on the dedicated fish menu, making this one of the best seafood-leaning Italian restaurants in the Birmingham region. With its Woodbridge Road premises always open late, and with extended hours on the weekend for lunchtime dining, Ponte Di Legno is often buzzing – book early to avoid disappointment.
