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.
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
We had dinner at Il Punto a couple of nights ago and we had a great time. I'm Italian and I loved their food. The pasta was cooked right and all dishes were tasty. The manager is very friendly and hospitable.
Always a delight, great staff, great service and absolutely delicious and creative dishes.
This place is a hidden gem... the food is outstanding and the service is impeccable!
Went for Valentine’s Day. The prefix menu had a great selection. Our steak came out undercooked and the chef informed us there was a mistake and our dish was mixed with someone else’s who requested it to be cooked that way. They were apologetic and quick to fix the issue. Even gave us complementary Lemoncello at the end of our meal to show their apologies. Ambiance was great and covid precautions were in place which made us very comfortable.
The food was not good. It was a fun experience but I most likely will not be returning.
Food was amazing. Service great. Definitely would go back.
Never disappoints.Even outside on a cold night,we were pleasantly surprised
Had a well protected corner to ourselves with an overhead heater.
Food was delicious as usual but we did miss the complementary soup tasting
at the beginning of the meal .Times are different and we get it.Service always timely and gracious.
I had a wonderful outdoor dining experience at Il Punto. The setup is terrific - covered and very warm. My mista salad and halibut with mashed potatoes were superb. And the pistachio tiramisu was simply amazing. The service was excellent and the prices most reasonable. Wonderful dining option near Times Square.
The food and service were EXCELLENT!!! The food took long but its definitely worth it. I recommend this restaurant and I will be back.
Hey. It's freakin Covid in December. THANK YOU for being open. My server deserves 10 stars! I live 5000 miles away but would come back bc of him.
Eggplant Parmigiano was more like ratatouille. I enjoyed my experience more than the food. I could tell you worked hard on your outside dining and absolutely appreciate it!
Love, love, LOVE this place! The food is incredible and the staff are truly amazing. One of my go-to’s for sure!
returned to one of my favorite italian restaurants in the city......not crowded due to pandemic and certainly following all covid policies....well spaced out, sanitizers and masks......staff very friendly and professional and always get a great meal at a good value..........give it a try for a great dining experience
my boyfriend and I had date night here on a Sunday night (2020, covid times). It was empty but everything, food, drink, dessert was on point! great service and our waiter, Andrea, was awesome. We’ll definitely be coming back to eat here again and again!
The service was great. They were fast and friendly. The food was good, at a decent price.
Our lunch yesterday at Il Punto was the perfect antidote to cabin fever. Sitting outdoors on a warm summer's day, shaded by an umbrella, with a glass of wine, a perfect caprese salad, a red onion gelato salad, and an excellent plate of gnocchi with pears, capped off with an espresso and a tiramisu, raised our spirits. Our servers did a terrific job in these difficult circumstances. When indoor dining begins again, Il Punto will be well-situated with multiple rooms and we will certainly be back.
