Lobsters are marine crustaceans that have a sweet, delicate, and luxurious meat that can be cooked in a variety of ways. While today, lobster is saved for special occasions due to its high cost, lobster originally had more humble origins. Thought to be undesirable, lobster was mainly consumed by poor residents living next to fishing villages. It wasn’t until the mid 1800’s that lobster became a main staple at fine dining restaurants.
Il Ponte features the finest Italian cuisine from tempting pasta and authentic pizza to mouthwatering regional dishes. Il Ponte also has an extensive choice of exquisite Italian and international wines.
