My spouse and I and three family members dined at Il Punto Ristorante for lunch on a Sunday in early August 2019. Il Punto is open daily for lunch and dinner. Diners can reserve a spot using the online Open Table reservation system. Il Punto is located at the corner of 9th Avenue and West 38th Street in Midtown West/Hell’s Kitchen. The restaurant occupies a corner location, with windows on two sides of the space. The main dining room includes a bar as well as tables in many shapes and configurations. A private room is available for special events. Il Punto serves Italian cuisine. We ordered several starters: steak carpaccio (topped with arugula and shaved parmesan), caprese (heirloom tomatoes with buffala mozzarella), watermelon and cucumber salad, and spinach salad (with mushrooms, artichokes, and bacon). As our main dishes, we ordered the spaghetti carbonara, rigatoni with meat sauce, shrimp fetuccini with zucchini and tomatoes, a chicken dish (topped with arugula), and a fish dish. For dessert, we shared the tiramisu, cheesecake, and a house specialty, the Cuore di Sicilia (homemade almond pastries filled with squash jam and topped with mixed berries sauce). We were celebrating two birthdays, and the restaurant decorated two plates in celebratory fashion. We enjoyed our lunch at Il Punto; the restaurant offers quality food and service in an area where it is often difficult to find.

This is my first-time leaving feedback and had such a great time here that I felt I needed to put in some unsolicited feedback for Il Punto. We first visited Il Punto about a year ago during a weekend trip in NY and have fell in love with the restaurant ever since. Every dish is quite simply amazing and has that fresh home made from scratch authentic Italian food taste. The Tiramisu and the Onion Ice Cream Shrimp Salad are to die for, highly recommended. The restaurant has that small and inviting atmosphere and waiting staff are super friendly and attentive. We literally drove all the way from DC to eat here for my daughter’s 14th birthday celebration (she specifically requested to eat dinner at this restaurant for her birthday!). The staff at the restaurant made sure we felt right at home and went out of their way to make the celebration special with a free desert and some appetizer sampling. We ended up giving them a hug when we left at the end of the evening.

Ate here for the first time with a friend on a recent visit. What a find!! The food was the best we have had in NYC in a long time. In addition, the service was fantastic. Unfortunately, I was not feeling well on our visit and only managed a few bites of my meal, but even still it was so good. The waiter, and the owner (manager? Chef?) were very concerned that I did not like my meal. I assured them that was not the case and that we would definitely return. In addition the owner/manager/chef was so welcoming it felt like dining with family! He even brought us a shot of homemade limoncello to finish our meal!! (again, unfortunately I passed, but my friend enjoyed it!). This is what you look for (or at least what we look for) in a good Italian restaurant. I think we've found our new go-to when in the city!! Grazie!!!

Truly overlyprized food (Valentines day menu 85$ without taxes and tip). Filet mignon was okay but lacked any salt and pepper, defedenately not worth the money. Desserts tasted like straight from a can, not homemade. Wine was ok and staff friendly.

We ate here this evening after the restaurant was recommended to us and having seen the really good reviews. The evening didn’t start great as after giving my name for the reservation the phone rang and the waiter just pointed at our table and then ignored us as he talked on the phone so we went and got ourselves seated. We commented to each other how rude he was and with hindsight I wish we had just left. The menu looked good and things started to pick up and the waiter who took our order was really nice and a lot better than the waiter who ignored us earlier. Myself and my friends then ordered and I had the caramelised onion ice gelato to start which was absolutely amazing. What wasn’t good is that after two of us had finished eating (plates still on the table)they brought all the main dishes straight to the table with no pause and no consideration for the fact that my friends wife was still eating her starter. This really did spoil the evening for us and we just felt we were being rushed and they wanted to get rid of us. Two of the main courses were good the third which was the flattened chicken was dry and overcooked. My friend told the waiter who said “no problem “ which really wasn’t the response we had hoped for. After paying what was a large bill some glasses of lemocillo were brought to the table as an apology but by then the damage had been done. We left the drinks and the restaurant and we were all really disappointed with the service we received. My friends birthday is tomorrow and I had taken him out with his wife for the occasion. I felt aggrieved having to leave a tip and that the night had been ruined and we couldn’t wait to leave. I would recommend the restaurant and I certainly wouldn’t visit again.

What a great reintroduction to dining out. My friends and I enjoyed a long, leisurely meal. The food was delicious, especially the desserts. Antonio (waiter/chef) entertained us with stories about the menu, the restaurant and his hometown. We didn't feel rushed. All the staff were friendly and welcoming. I can't wait to return to check out the new menu Antonio teased!

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...

Antonio was fantastic. Our food was delicious, and the staff catered to the tastes of our picky kids. The atmosphere is comfortable and charming. This is not a quiet place. It is alive with friends and families enjoying good, good food. We would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone!

Such a nice restaurant! The service is attentive and warm, the food is divine, and the atmosphere is relaxed. Our server (who may have been the restaurant owner or manager?) explained everything so nicely and made us feel comfortable. The gelato salad was amazing!!!! My husband’s tortellini dish was the best pasta he had ever had in his life. My lobster ravioli was incredible. It was so good I was wanting to sop up the extra sauce with bread, but I was too full. Sad. We got both kinds of tiramisu to go, and well, they were both wonderful! What a special, memorable meal. A treasure!

OMG. The reviews are spot on. Antonio remembered us as we were seated. My wife and I shared an Ice Cream salad. She had an awesome tortelloni Alfredo while I dined on the Nero pasta with clams, mussels and shrimp. Both were out of this world. We then shared the striped bass special which proved to be the best fish I have ever had. Crispy and delightfully tender all at once. We shared a Pistachio Tiramisu while a choir of angels sang alleluia! If you are anywhere close to Times Sq you would be well advised to dine with Antonio and his sweet, sweet staff.

I hadn't been here for about 3 years due to travel restrictions but hoped it would be as good as I remembered and I wasn't disappointed. We had a table of 8 colleagues and clients for a post NRF dinner and every single one of us thoroughly enjoyed the evening. Fabulous waiter who made some great recommendations, seriously good food and some great wines. Highly recommended.

Wondered if it would measure up to the reviews. It did. We had a great dinner. Service was spectacular, setting was great and food delicious. Everyone agreed. With one drink per the five, entree, coffee and three deserts, bill was about $410. 10% tax and 20% gratuity added. A little pricey but this is NYC and it was worth every penny! Grazie

We had eggplant parm which was excellent . I like the eggplant when it is not breaded, and that is exactly how it was prepared here. The spaghetti was cooked al dente but was nothing special. We also had a tagliatelle with duck ragout. It was excellent. We started with a Caesar salad which tasted fine but the Romain had been shredded like you put on a taco. Warm focaccia came with the meal. The service was good, and the location convenient. This is a good Italian restaurant with a very convenient midtown location.

This place is phenomenal. A funky exterior leads you to an inviting, cozy, upscale interior. We were greeted by Antonio who was charming, witty, and knowledgeable. He made recommendations that were spot on. We had the arancini appetizer, the red onion gelato salad, spaghetti a la vongele (clams), and a Bronzino special. We were given a complimentary pistachio tiramisu that was light, fluffy, crunchy, and delicious. Everything was wonderful, and every server was attentive and friendly and professional. We will definitely be back.

After our concert near Hudson Yards, we had a wonderful dinner at Il Punto. The service was exceptional. Upon the recommendation of our waiter, the four of us split two ice cream salads. The red onion gelato mixes into the salad and tastes like a balsamic dressing. So delicious!! And the shrimp in the salad were so tasty! We had the orecchietti, fettuccini special, and the squid pasta frutti di mare. All were delicious! All in all, a wonderful evening. We will definitely be back - a great choice in Hell's Kitchen!

Hell's Kitchen
Just a few strides from the pulsing beat of Times Square, Hell’s Kitchen has a much more local pulse than its buzzing neighbour. The low-key vibe is part of the appeal, but there’s also a new energy arriving in the neighbourhood in the form of modern residential buildings with new retail and food shops. Ninth Avenue is lined with restaurants of all types, from tiny Thai hangouts and Italian trattorias to French bistros and Southern cuisine. Just show up hungry and walk up and down the street, you are bound to find something that looks good. For a more classic taste of the city, grab a bite to eat along Restaurant Row (46th Street between 8th and 9th Avenues) before a Broadway show. The Hudson River provides a break from the city blocks with riverside views, piers for boat tours, and parks perfect for a stroll.
