Ponte Nuovo in Crystal Palace
We had dinner at Ponte Nuovo, an Italian restaurant on Westow Hill, Crystal Palace, on Sunday evening.
We went for the £14.95 Sunday dinner option which included 3 courses. Whilst this is a competitive price, we felt the meal was disappointingly mediocre. The asparagus soup was a bit stringy. I opted for the turkey was main course and it was a bit dry with no great taste.
That said, the staff were friendly and helpful though there was quite a gap between finishing the starter and serving the main course. We decided not to have the dessert so we were offered coffee or liqueur instead, an offer we took up.
We have eaten here before and previous experience of the the food was better. I'm hoping this was just one not-so-good day.
