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.
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.
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.
Very relaxed. Beautiful tasty food. The samon mozarella starter is to die for and the calzone kiev was scrumptious! Baked cheesecake for dessert was delicious. We weren't felt rushed at all and service was amazing, would recommend this place for any couple or family dining; moseley village is becoming my favorite place to eat out!
Excellent food, lovely atmosphere, great service. The menu has loads of delicious things on - almost too much to choose from! Had a really nice time
Excellent regardless of what day or time you dine. The steak Diane is probably the best steak I've had in a few years. Excellent. Keep it up
I booked Ponte Di Legno for my birthday in December, we were a party of six & all of us enjoyed amazing food, there's a fantastic selection to choose from on the menu, we had brilliant service been though the restaurant was extremely busy, the staff are very friendly & efficient, the whole place had a great atmosphere, a truly fabulous restaurant.
The atmosphere is great staff are very friendly and the food has never disappointed us, a bonus is you can take your own beer wine etc as they are not licensed so it makes it a very affordable evening out. The only issue is parking locally but with a bit of patience a spot can normally be found close to the restaurant. One of our favourite spots to eat.
Busy, buzzing little Italian restaurant. Take your own drinks, and if you forget there's an off-licence a couple of doors down. Consistently great food, large portions, impeccable service from jolly waiters, always a party atmosphere. You can keep it casual and order a pizza, but we go for the mouthwatering fillet steak and fresh fish. Value for money. Best Italian for miles.
Celebrating a birthday, been a few times before. Good atmosphere and service. We ordered a pasta fish and meat dish for main, which was excellent. Had 2 sweets to finish. Also took our own wine which was a bonus as the restaurant has a BYO policy as they do not have a drinks licence.
The food and service were both good - but it is so noisy - hard for two people to hear each other - perhaps some soft surfaces? - curtains , cushions etc? Or large tables in one area and tables for two / four in the area near the door.
Lovely little Italian in Moseley. Food was superb. I had fish soup followed by sea bass. One star off due to noise from other tables. We sat by the huge Windows. They need some heavy curtains to absorb sound the from the inside!
