An Italian restaurant just around the corner from Oxford Circus Tube station, Ponti's focuses on classic regional cooking. There's a separate cocktail bar, Perini & Perini, downstairs too. 

Expect a menu ranging from bresaola with rocket, parmesan, olive oil and lemon dressing to bruschetta with 'nduja and burrata, lasagna al forno, spaghetti carbonara and pancetta di maiale – slow-roasted pork belly here served with veal, balsamic jus, olive oil mash, cabbage and caramelised apple.

Pizzas also feature, as well as pre-theatre menus and gluten-free options.

I went into Ponti's Italian kitchen when I saw the mess that was Oxford Circus tube station (i.e. closing it and a hoard of people queuing up outside) and decided that I'd prefer to have something to eat rather than wait (story of my life). I am so very glad I made that decision.

Ponti's is perfection! A lovely space that would serve as a great after work drinks spot just as easily as it would a date night dinner venue. I had some olives with flat bread and an Aperol Spritz (two actually because... well, happy hour) both of which were exactly what I needed to wait out the tube mess. Although I only had a light snack, the food that was coming out looked delicious; Italian fare done beautifully and, by the looks on people's faces, they thoroughly agreed!
