Bath is known for its picturesque charm. You’ll find one of the city’s prettiest views from the windows of Ponte Vecchio (meaning ‘the old bridge’), a smart Italian bar and restaurant adjoining the rugby ground and overlooking the historic Pulteney Bridge. Visitors can expect contemporary decor, a beer garden to take advantage of in the summer, and a stunning menu offering exciting Italian cuisine with a twist. If you’ve got an occasion coming up, give Ponte Vecchio a call – they can expertly cater for parties and weddings.

This isn’t just a place for sit-down dining – the lively bar downstairs welcomes those popping in for a drink or a few cocktails with friends. Those who do decide to venture up to the restaurant will be rewarded with fine Italian and Mediterranean fare, and one of the best views in Bath. Beautifully authentic starters including bruschetta, burrata and fresh Cornish mussels sautéed with garlic, chilli, white wine and cherry tomatoes are sure to tantalise your tastebuds. To follow there is a great range of pasta, fish and meat dishes; the slow-cooked lamb ragu served with fresh tagliatelle is beautifully rich, whilst the 8oz grass-fed sirloin steak served with crispy roast potatoes and your choice of green peppercorn, porcini or Gorgonzola sauce is a great main course for a special evening meal.

If you’re dining with a few friends, why not order a selection of pizzas to share? The quattro formaggi pizza topped with Gorgonzola, Parmesan, mozzarella and goat’s cheese is a crowd-pleaser, but if you fancy trying something different opt for Jenny’s Pizza; topped with mozzarella, porcini mushrooms, Parmesan shavings and smoked oil and with a pizza crust filled with tomato and melted mozzarella, it’s utterly delightful.

Finish your meal in spectacular fashion with the likes of tiramisu, the chef’s speciality cheesecake served with forest fruit sauce, or unctuous chocolate soufflé with vanilla ice cream. If you don’t want to leave Ponte Vecchio’s comforts behind after finishing your Italian feast, you’re in luck – the bar is open late, so you can stay and enjoy the buzzing ambience long into the evening whilst nursing a glass of fine Italian wine or a perfectly balanced cocktail.
