Server wouldn’t accept our reservation and kept giving tables away to other people. They then told OpenTable we no-showed, which was a doubly-terrible way to treat us.

Set menu for valentines. Wouldn't have booked if I knew it was such limited choice. Was nearly 300 dollars for an average meal. Not good value, wouldn't return

Literally, one of the worst rip offs I ever experienced. I had a reservation for a week. The day of the reservation they call me and tell me they need my credit card and it’s only an $85 pp price fix menu or the have to cancel me. I hesitantly accept because I figure getting a reservation somewhere else last minute on Valentine’s Day would be tough.
My goodness the food was terrible. They brought a soup that was cold and had maybe 3 spoonfuls in it. The burrata was tasteless and the pasta was like it was microwaved with that hard texture upon reheating.
What a disaster and $800 up in smoke. Avoid!

Let me also state that I’ve never once posted a bad review anywhere and eat at premium priced restaurants quite often.

We recently went to Il Punto while visiting NYC. It is close to the New Yorker and MSG. The food was outstanding. It is a small restaurant so I would reccomend making a reservation. I will definitely go again when in NYC.

My wife and I recently had a wonderful dinner at iL Punto. We were staying in the Hilton Garden Inn which was a short walk from the restaurant. The food was very good and the service was excellent. The meal/drinks at the restaurant are not inexpensive, but this is New York City...

Our first time at Il Punto, we went to celebrate an anniversary. The ambiance was great and the food very very good. I had three courses ( $49 set) and loved every mouthful as did my husband. The server was attentive and friendly and all the staff were excellent.
The only fault is that the red meat dishes ( veal , beef) at $45 for main course are very expensive compared to other menu items which are reasonable . I would expect if pasta/chicken etc are $24- $28 that the red meat dishes would be about $35.

The caponata was excellent.
The insalata di campo had no flavor.
And I’m afraid the fettuccine salsiccia e Barolo was bland as well.
An expensive and disappointing meal.

Went here for a pre-theatre dinner. The dining room is cozy and comfortable, and the service was excellent. We mentioned our theater tickets and the staff made sure we were well taken care of and easily able to make our show. The food was very good -- the lobster ravioli for my wife was tender and flavorful; my pasta alla Norma was done just right with a cloud of ricotta salata.

Wonderful restaurant, has a locals flavor, but out-of-towners are welcome too. Service was very professional, food was terrific (as usual), unrushed, a very pleasant dining experience. Again.

The staff was wonderful and friendly the moment we walked in the door!
Food is amazing! No complaints there! Just one meal out of 5 was scimpy! My Husband ordered a chicken dish , it may have been capon , he received one cutlet.
I had duck, plenty and delish! The gnocchi and salads amazing!
Would I go back? Yes! My Husband No!
Be aware the tip was included on the bill.

We were in New York for NRF. This is our FAVORITE restaurant in the area and we come here EVERY year to make sure we have the lasagna. It is the BEST we have ever had, hands down! Order it when you first arrive because it takes about 25 minutes. It is definitely worth the wait.

The food was simply amazing. I had been here a few years ago and did not hesitate to recommend it for dinner this evening. Highly recommend the seabass, pasta, cannoli.. snything!! Many small rooms make this wonderful restaurant seem intimate and cosy

Had a birthday dinner for my husband this past weekend at iL Punto. We had not been there before and we were so very pleased by the warmth of the staff and the incredible service. The food was absolutely delicious. I am a chef and really appreciated the quality of the ingredients and presentation. We were not rushed but the food came out timely so that we weren't overly delayed in eating. Thank you iL Punto for giving us a memorable birthday evening. Will absolutely return!

The food and ambiance were very good. Our only complaint is that we would have liked to have known when we made our reservations that they had a fixed-price menu that evening. Perhaps we should have expected this since it was New Years Eve, but we'were visitors to NYC and weren't aware of the local conventions.

Durchschnittlicher Italiäner mit überzogenen Preisen.
Mehrere Dinge der Bestellung vergessen (Getränke und Speisen), wahr dem Personal aber egal.
Dafür soll man Trinkgeld geben????????

This is the second time we dined at Il Punto. The second time was as good, if not, better than the first. We dined with our entire family during the week between Christmas and New Year's. Everyone at the table was thrilled with the food and the service. Thanks for a lovely evening!

The food took forever. A starter salad took 45 minutes to get. They brought out food to the wrong table and there 2 minutes of confusion. The salmon was super dry and the chicken was tiny. Not a great experience, especially for what they charge.
