Il Ponticello's Create-Your-Own Pizza and Brunchissimo

I see Il Ponticello as somewhat like Angelina Jolie - from a carousing wild child to an admirable family woman. They are now more focused on giving the whole family a grand time. However, dipsomaniacs are still welcome after hours.

Their new offerings aim to please both the parents and the kids! While the grown-ups are eating their way to contentment via the Branchissimo, kids are kept busy with a fun gastro treat called Pizza Santino! The latter is a create-your-own pizza adventure for kids 12 years old and below.

The Pizza Santino set above is bungler-proof. The well-calculated and delicious ingredients permit the kids to be as creative as possible. Whatever they do, the outcome will be delicious!

Our son's rebel moment: mixing the red and white sauces together. He's a little bit of a nerd and quite anal about things, so when he did this, I was like, "Whoa, boy! That is such a renegade move! Are you okay?"

After your kids are done with their masterpiece, the server will bring it to the kitchen for some baking time. Less than 10 minutes later, we got this..

Slightly chewy crust crowned with delicious house-made sauces, portobello, pancetta, mozzarella, and grana padano. I was really surprised with the outcome! It's far better than I expected for a DIYer. 


The Brunch Sets comes with unlimited Pancetta Arrotolata! Let me put that into text with feelings just in case it didn't register well the first time. UNLIMITED PANCETTA ARROTOLATA!!!!!!!! You can ask them to cook it any which way you want! By the way, you can also have coffee or tea until your gastric juices cues you to stop! Love it!

Il Ponticello's Carbonara Lasagna

We chose the two Il Ponticello dishes that are just downright magnificent {a.k.a the best sellers}: Carbonara Lasagna and Porchetta. The others are Truffled Cheese and Mushroom Frittata, Italian Style Eggs Benedetto, Tuscan Polpettone, and the ever dependable Bacon and Eggs combo.

Il Ponticello's Porchetta

Since no meal is ever complete without some sweet treats, a dessert sampler is included in the Brunchissimo special! The choices: Nutella Bigne, Cheesecake Caramel Pana Cotta, Tiramisu, Caramello di Semolina, and Decadent Chocolate Cake!

Porchetta alla Romana Sandwich

Also new on the Il Ponticello menu is the Porchetta alla Romana sandwich. Their porchetta is one of those edibles you wanna propose to. They spiced things up a bit with this one, and the result is a notch better than the original! I didn't know it was possible. The thick slices of spicy porchetta with salsa verde and caramelized onions are hugged by halved pan cubano. Really gooood!
