This was my favourite haunt for an after work gossip session with my best buddy from work about 2 years ago. Even if we were dog tired we managed to cheer up as soon we stepped in. In winter months especially it was brilliant to watch the flames in the huge oven licking the base of the pizza pans.
Recently a close pal of mine was in London for 2 days for a business trip, thankfully he was a short distance away from Oxford Street so I treated him to brunch at Pontis. I am so glad that they didn’t fail to impress.
He had Smoked salmon with Eggs scrambled and I have Eggs Florentine with freshly squeezed orange juice.
In the past I had a really memorable meal on my buddys birthday here are some photos from back in 2012!
They have lots of seating available and there are also tables outside – prefect during the summers, the place is ALWAYS full during peak tourist season so thats when I tend to avoid going there.
They have a wide variety of biscuits and cookies for sale and an ok wine selection as well. Its a family managed unit so the service is very good and friendly.
My first ever visit to Pontis though was at their branch at Wimbledon in the Food Court. They made my friend and me the fluffiest omelettes ever!
For an authentic taste of Italy in the heart of the West End , this is a brilliant option.Being family managed it is more of tradition I think to serve good honest food and over the past 2 years have since the menu change too ,so am sure there is a constant thought process behind the whole thing.Comforting to know isn’t it?
