    il punto is like a great neighborhood restaurant right in the heart of the theatre district. The service is warm and friendly and the food is always terrific. Have been there several times and it never disappoints. They are vegan and vegetarian friendly but have plenty of meat fish and other dishes always cooked perfectly

    Impromptu dinner with my sons and some friends after a wet Saturday in Manhattan. Greeted at the door by Antonio who had taken our reservation. Immediately seated at corner table with white linen tablecloths. Antonio served us drinks and reviews the specials including their famous gelato salad. We ordered that, plus 3 other salads and 4 pastas to share (6 men, 2 women and we were hungry) then entrees. Every dish we tasted was outstanding! I had veal while my wife had the cioppino—outstanding! We even shared their dessert specials as well! Great restaurant, great food, close to Times Square (easy walk), great wines and outstanding service! Highly recommend!!!!

    The staff was Very Attentive and kind. Often filling water glasses, allowed our nephew to join us for a short while, and to do his work afterwards on the outdoor porch, while we were still eating. Above and Beyond. Food was fantastic and reasonable, delicious wine, great salads, and wonderful Pappardelle with meat sauce, and chicken parm. We will be back again!

    My wife and I dine frequently in and around the city and this restaurant is a very strong contender for “I’d like to eat there again and try something else”. This isn’t any great “value find”, nor is it some eye catching interior beauty. However the service was solid and attentive, the decor acceptable, the location “ok”. The food portions were “moderate” but the food quality was excellent. If portions were larger then this review could be 4.5 stars easily. My wife’s chicken pounded paper thin and sautéed to perfection. My black squid with seafood had just the right “bite” with the sauce and was devoured by myself. The pricing is “ok” but it is Manhattan and wasn’t truly “out of line”. If you’re looking for a quiet, quality Italian meal in NYC, I’d recommend giving this restaurant a try.

    The food is DELICIOUSSSS!! I had the ravioli with pink vodka sauce and lobster meat and it was incredibly good. I was eating just the sauce after finishing all the ravioli. For dessert we had chocolate cake with a melting center with ice cream, genuinely one of the best desserts I’ve ever had. The staff was kind and warm. I ate here with my mom and we loved it and vowed to come back every time she visits nyc!
