Cozy restaurant near theater district with excellent food and a small outdoor, covered space for dining.
The area is a little run down but the restaurant, food, and service was excellent!
We always enjoy our visits to Il Punto. The sausage and broccoli rabe was a perfect entree alongside the shared sirloin. Always a fine venue to meet and dine!
We celebrated our anniversary here with some friends and had a great meal. We hadn’t been here before but trusted the other reviews and were not disappointed. The food was excellent and reasonably priced. The service was also outstanding; staff was attentive and helpful but not overbearing. Overall a really good experience!
Wonderful food and service, as always. Attentive, knowledgeable staff made me feel welcome.
This was our second time here and loved it just as much if not more . We chose Il Punto for a dinner with friends because of Antonio and his staff. They were as amazing at this visit as our first time. We were made to feel as if we were life long friends. Great food, stellar service and the most warm and inviting ambiance. This is absolutely the perfect Italian restaurant every neighborhood needs. We will be back again!
excellent food and service. a short walk to the theatre district.
This is our “ go to” restaurant in Manhattan and it is always a special treat.
Ambience is great. Our host was amazing and treated us like family.
Highly recommend it!
It's hard to believe this place is in New York. With it's 50's bubble gum Italian music and fake plants it feels like a suburb from the past. The food is good not great, the bread sticks tasted like cardboard. I would not recommend this place to anyone.
My wife and I went here for the first time for dinner before our show and the staff was amazing. My wife and I also have to give special mention to Antonio. This guy is a true gentleman, and excellent host. He converses with the guests and is very professional and kind. Truly a gem in this big city!
Wonderful menu with very attentive staff.
Great good and service. Loved the capponata! Recommended
Outstanding food, with creative menu. Would recommend this neighborhood restaurant very highly.
Antonio was awesome; helped us select such delicious choices for appetizer and dinner. We will definitely be back. Cappuccino and desserts great too!
Authentic Sicilian dishes. Gnocchi were light in a subtle creamy gorgonzola sauce. Service extrordinaire.
Had a delicious meal here the other evening. Service was great. Very courteous . Prices reasonable for NYC. Only took a picture of dessert… but the entire meal was plated just as nice!!
Great food, great service, great ambiance. Welcome back!
Excellent service. Great food. Totally enjoyed
OVER THE TOP WONDERFUL! The chef was dying to break out after the long shutdown and created specials that absolutely flooded us. Octopus salad that was divine, a Bombay Sapphire Martini that was like going to the Met wonderful, red sangria notturna that was exceptional, risotto that made the seafood sing, black squid tagliolini with shrimp/ mussels/ clams/ scallops/ calamari, it was like being in Italy again, a memorable evening.
Outstanding. This is a gem!
Definitely going back.
Awesome staff and great food! The limoncello was awesome too!
The ice cream salad is scrumptious and perfectly put together. I had the Tagliolini neri ai Frutti di Mare and it was wonderful, full of perfect seafood. My wife had Tortellini Alfredo which was awesome and the we split a striped bass filet pan fried to golden perfection. The pistachio tiramisu was incredible. Antonio and his staff make you feel at home and they bring the flavors of Sicily to the corner of 8th & 38th in NYC!
Fantastic food and service. Would definitely return and recommend to friends.
Great food, excellent service and perfect portions. We had the Tagliollini Mare, Parpadelle a la Bolognesa and the Oriecchette. Our waiter was fantastic with the four selections and before we left he brought us Limoncello on the house. Fantastic food and service.
Fantastic spot for homemade Italian food. I’m not sure I’ve had better service anywhere. The food combined with the service make this place a hidden gem. I highly recommend it for a special time while in NYC.
Excellent food and service. We had the stuffed chicken breast with ricotta, spinach and roasted peppers with a fresh tomato sauce. For dessert I had the almond pastries, came directly from Antonio’s home town. Delicious! Loved the presentation and the used of fresh ingredients. At the end Antonio, chef/owner, gave us a taste of the Limoncello liqueur that he is working toward perfecting, not there yet but closed. We had a wonderful time!
Anytime we are in the city we make it point to dine here at least once during our stay. The food is great italian - not your typical « red sauce » - just clean flavors made
With traditional methods.
I scream, you scream, we ALL scream for Ice Cream Salad!!! Amazing!!!
Lovely staff, very accommodating. Loved the carpaccio and arugula salad. Great dressing, fresh arugula. Perfection!
Lots of choices, nice touch of lemongello , on the house, to complete our meal.
I love this restaurant. Have been there many times & never disappointed. Delicious food, pleasant atmosphere & a really friendly vibe (thanks, Antonio).
The food was outstanding, everyone was exceptionally kind and generous. Highly, highly recommend. I had the tortellini, and my fiancé had the squid ink pasta, and we were thrilled with our meals. We got there late but they were so accommodating and nice. The dessert was also awesome and the place was very cute. Quite possibly the best Italian food I’ve ever had- don’t tell my Nonna.
My family and I had a great experience at this restaurant. The food was incredible and such high quality. The service was impeccable and our waiter was so great with recommendations. Such a great meal, will definitely be going back!
The entire dining experience was excellent. The food was delicious and the service was first rate. The menu had authentic Italian and some unique dishes. Definitely visiting again!
Cena en pareja
Great food and service
Love this restaurant. Been here many times & never disappointed. The food is excellent with interesting choices. The service is professional, friendly, helpful. Thanks, Antonio.
Great food and great service!
This is the neighborhood Italian restaurant that every neighborhood should have. Great food, warm and welcoming. Fish, perfectly seared. Milanese pounded paper thin. Tastes of wine before choosing which one to order. Shellfish allergy was transmitted to staff who offered to alter menu items. The manager, Antonio, made us feel like old friends even though this was our first visit. We’d go back just to see Antonino again! Highly recommended.
Staff is very attentive and super friendly. We had the Gorgonzola gnocchi and sea bass special. Both were outstanding. For dessert we had the pistachio tiramisu and that topped everything else we had on this trip. So smooth and made with real pistachio. Great experience. Wish we lived closer to go more often.
Great food. Great staff
