The seafood used is also taken from nearby fishing ports that concentrate catches on local fish. With dishes using generous amounts of only the most carefully chosen of local Hiroshima ingredients, you can enjoy some truly delicious Italian cuisine at Caffe Ponte.
Loads of fruit pulp! Fresh squeezed orange juice
The fresh squeezed orange juice （650 yen） is extremely popular and made with three whole oranges from the stock that is piled in heaps before the restaurant as if it was a fruit stand. These drinks are filled with juicy pulp from the oranges. When the restaurant is full you can just order some to-go.
