Food is really, really good. Two of us were vegetarian and there are plenty of good options. Service was very friendly and prompt. Restaurant has an authentic and unassuming air about it. Sat in the courtyard - is well heated and quite nice during the evenings.

Two visits to Puntino over 2 years and each time has been a great experience. The service was great, the same smiling young lady each time. We had the special sardines as a starter, not a lover of sardines but they were tasty enough, although bit heavy on the crumb coat. Had 4 cheese Wood fired pizza for main and... More

We visited here on a saturday night, we loved the location and the set up of the restaurant! Red tablecloths and little tables were so cute! The little courtyard looked lovely but slightly too cold to sit out but would be great in summer! Staff were very friendly on arrival and throughout our visit. We ordered calamari and bufflao mozzarella... More

We had dinner in this quaint little Italian restaurant in Crown Street, Woolloomooloo. We had a caprese starter salad and bread and then finished with Pizza. The food was wholesome and delicious. The mozzarella on the caprese salad was the best I have ever had. So creamy. The staff are funny and polite and make you feel very welcome. This... More

We were early diners at this restaurant as we'd had a big day walking and were hungry. The service and food were excellent. We ordered from the specials menu and both the lamb cutlets and fish were delicious. Deserts were well priced and fresh. Would definitely visit again.

Visited Puntino sunday night. Their pizza was the best I have had in many a long year. My pizza Crudo was simple and delicious. Customer service was also very pleasant and attentive. Very nice place.

Food and ambience were adequate but the delightful service of our young Italian waiter transformed this place from 'just another inner-city eatery' to one I'd visit again. A business which clearly values both its staff and customers.

I was looking forward to a good pizza with great enthusiasm. Very disappointed. It was chewy & doughy. Too much tomato and the whole pizza lacked flavour. I ordered a pizza with "nduja" a calabrese very spicy sausage mince, it was hardly visible and no evidence in the taste. Very very disappointing as I am also a local and italian... More

The food is great and there are a wide variety of choices. Being byo it is also great value. The pastas, pizzas and seafood are all great. I also love the buratta when they have it. While the interior is pretty simple and sometimes noisy it is a place I know I can go to and always have a great... More

I was looking for a job as pizza chef and the end I stopped to eat with my friend. It's a very Italian style restaurant where I felt at home. ITALY. If you like true Italian food, go to Puntino. 10+
