Judging by the crowds on a recent Friday night, I expected the restaurant to be special. We were in NJ visiting friends, so our hosts suggested Ponte Vecchio and we were anxious to try it based on the reviews. Perhaps because of the crowds, our waiter was a little distracted and not as attentive as we would have preferred, but he was okay. The food was fine, but to be honest, nothing exceptional. We shared a tri-color salad as a starter, which was good and large enough for two. My wife had the grilled salmon ($22.95) dish, which was a large piece of fish, but skimpy on the vegetables. The waiter couldn't switch a side of pasta for the potatoes, so we paid extra but didn't get the requested angel hair, but a nondescript spaghetti noodle instead. I ordered the chicken giambotta ($19.95) which was tasty and the portion large enough for two, maybe even three meals. I have to say that someone at another table ordered a mixed seafood dish from the Seafood bar and it looked spectacular. We didn't have dessert or coffee (and it's a BYOB, which is nice and I guess common in NJ), but the meal overall was very good, but I'd be curious to try other places if I'm ever back in the area.
