Excellent meal. Veal tenderloin, tortellini with porcini. Wines by the glass so-so. Only negative was high noise level. Would go back.
Everything was superb!
Reasonable prices but wine by the glass is crazy expensive. Not authentic Italian but ok.
This is a little gem of a restaurant in the big city! Food was absolutely delicious. Service was excellent even while the restaurant was fully booked. Atmosphere is warm and cozy- casual and elegant at the same time. I would definitely recommend iL Punto!
Great manager and staff
The staff were very friendly. Initially, we were seated next to the door, but the maitre'd told us that he had a better table in the back, which was much warmer and cozier. Other than one noisy party in the back, which left before our entrees, the atmosphere was great. This crew is legit. We asked the waiter for a wine recommendation and the wine that he recommended was an excellent choice (and it wasn't the most expensive on the menu, so he wasn't trying to steal a few more dollars from us, which is always appreciated). The food was great. Overall, excellent experience that I would repeat.
Fantastic service and worked very well with a large group. Antonio was a great communicator on everything and I really appreciate the level of service for a pre-marathon dinner.
Nice spot, food was very good, but unfortunately we were seated in the third of their three dinning rooms at a table that backed up to what looked like a service bar. Throughout our meal the waiters in this dining room used it to stage food delivery for a larger party near us. This proved to be very disruptive and detracted from our personal dinning experience.
One other note - the table our party of four were seated at had a trestle like table base which made is uncontrollable to sit at as there was very little leg room.
The service from our waiter Andrea was outstanding. He was professional in every respect and knew exactly when to have our glasses refilled, ask for our order, and take away the plates. The food was excellent and perfectly prepared. They accommodated my daughter, who has celiac, with gluten free pasta. She finished an entire bowl of generous proportion which is something she rarely does. Kudos to the chef and waitstaff.
The only downside was waiting to be seated. We had a 6 pm reservation for 4 people (wife and two daughters). We arrived at 5:45-5:50 and had to wait until about 6:15 to be seated while three other parties of 2, 4, and 6 people with 6 pm reservations who arrived well after us were seated before us. The host later apologized after we raised an objection which I appreciated.
Introduced important people to one another.
Great place for lunch. Very pleasant. Food was presented timely.
Had an excellent meal.Everything we ordered was delicious. The service was exemplary. Our server Idar went out of his way to make it special, even letting us change tables when a larger one became available. Little gestures like that, mean a lot.
We started with Storypoint Cabernet Sauvignon that was smooth
Insalate was fresh as was the mozzarella appetizer.
My cioppino was delicious but my wife’s chicken dish was overcooked and bony with no sauce. Chef apologized for sending it out.
Orange potatoes were bland.
The salmon ordered by a fellow diner was way undercooked and her friend’s lobster ravioli tasted frozen/stale vs the purported homemade.
Chef sent 2 desserts as an apology.
Service is lackluster as staff doesn’t understand English well and no manager seems to be on staff.
It’s a shame as setting and location are very nice.
I've eaten here many times and enjoyed it each time. I brought my sales team for a kick off to an upcoming busy week. We sat in one of the side rooms. It has never been this busy before that it was even open. We were hoping that it would be a quiet separate space so we could talk. Unfortunately they moved the other takes around and brought other diners in to an already cramped space. The food was delicious and the wine they suggested warranted two bottles since the first one sent down so quickly. Service was slower than usual but I'll chalk that up to the restaurant being busy.
Great host! Very friendly. Great food!
Small but mighty! If there was ever a neighborhood gem, Il Punto is it! The food was delicious. The presentation beautiful. I am not one to post photos of food but I was tempted! The amuse bouche sent by the chef was a delightful cream of tomato soup sprinkled with olive oil and a dollop of creme fraiche. The burrata was creamy and rich. My pasta was homemade and glorious! Nice little wine list. Best of all was the staff. So nice! So professional but friendly and fun. We ordered the 3 course pre fixe and were too full for dessert but they wrapped it up and sent it home with us. It too was awesome. My guest from Ireland — both of us in the event planning business — loved it too! Well done! Go and enjoy!
One of my favorite spots on the West Side. I’ve enjoyed three trips here and have always been pleased.
Highly recommend this spot for any occasion.
Always great food, the beets with bacon appetizer was exceptional!
Like walking into a authentic Italian restaurant in Rome. Great classic menu. From the host to the table everyone so welcoming it made us feel like we were everyday customers. Highly recommended
What a pleasant surprise! Pre-theater light dinner hit and gambled for our favorite summer dish: lobster ravioli. It was outstanding: FRESH, chunks of lobster, cooked al dente, served with a light sauce. If we had had more time, we would have ordered another plate of the lobster ravioli. Fabulous. Salad with fresh fennel and sliced blanched asparagus was another summery treat. Service so pleasant and yet got us out in time to safely make it to Theater Row. Next time, will plan for more time for dessert and coffee. Dishes were made with TLC and service made us feel right at home. Great date night: Thank you!
Always great food and great service! The staff go the extra distance and make sure you are always looked after. I try to get here more than once or twice a year.
Nice little spot that is going to typically be away from tourist with local owners and employees. Service was good, drinks were great and food was really good, just not quite great. My pasta dish with beef tips and red wine reduction was good but just a bit bland for my taste but the quality was very good. Nice spot though with a cute bar that was well stocked and if I'm back in the area I would give it another try for sure.
Great meal, service and atmosphere. Close to the theatre district, but removed from the throngs. Look forward to returning.
Ordering a speciality item (spare ribs) expecting a great value meal it was sparse and poorly constructed. The mashed potato was a thin film over the side of the plate cold by the time it arrived to the table, in addition the ribs themselves were appalling receiving only two with the sinew still on the bone from poor cleaning. The meat itself was tasty and well seasoned however it lost alot of appeal when you cut into the meat and found it riddled with coagulated fat which had balled from clearly being precooked let to cool then seared and not heated through before arriving at the table.
Further, four hours after consuming this meal despite carefully scraping the congealed fat from the meat and almost to the minute I brought it all back up for the remainder of the night.
I really wanted to like it as reviews were good and this was a much needed date night. Service was lovely and attentive. However short ribs were bland and had much gristle. Eggplant appetizer was undercooked and tough. Cocktails were awesome. Salad was tasty. My husband had chicken and it was fried and greasy. Owner was very attentive and offered added dessert. Chocolate mousse did not disappoint.
Bonito rsstaurante . Muy buen servicio . Comida de buena para arriba .
My favorite NY staple! Excellent food. Nice wine list and great service. I highly recommend
Ottima cena e ottimo servizio, con grande attenzione del gestore. Prezzi assolutamente competitivi rispetto allo standard americano. Da provare!
This place was fantastic! Best lobster ravioli ever and amazing service! I will be dining here every time I visit NYC! Highly recommended, 100 A++++
Food was great and reasonably priced. The noise level is really high due to being so close to the Lincoln Tunnel. They had the front doors open and it was crazy loud.
Our group was very pleased with the food and service. There were 7 of us and the restaurant did not miss a beat. All orders were served on time and hot. Thanks!
I love the ambiance in this restaurant. It is quiet and civilized. The service is very gracious. Compared to previous visits a while back, however, I found the food slightly disappointing.
I will come back, however, in case it was just that day.
Excellent food, decent sized portions. Attentive & friendly service. A place regulars of the area go, Hells Kitchen. A timeless old school classic Italian eaterie, really happy we found this place, on 9th. We were so full afterwards!
Great food, excellent wine and very good service😀
We always have an awesome meal at Il Punto - the food is outstanding and the service is always on point! This is a true neighborhood gem that never disappoints!
I had the seafood risotto and it was phenomenal. Always have a good dinner and excellent service
One of the best Italian meals I’ve ever eaten. The reviews giving this restaurant 4stars are unfair. The service was outstanding, the Pasta perfect Al Dente, the flavours were rich without being over bearing.
The food and service were excellent! Top notch service! The lamb chops were phenomenal.
