I visited this restaurant with four other friends. The restaurant was crowded but the staff was friendly and the food was good and served within a reasonable time. The waiter, Andrea, was very friendly, knowledgeable about the menu and added to the overall diing experience. I will definitely return to this restaurant.

Place is hard to get in even during the week. Food is very good: as close to Italy as it gets. I recommend avocado salad as a starter and any pasta dish

We arrived for brunch this morning with a family of eight (kids included) during a very busy time and the manager, the host and waiter were great!! They kept the unlimited mimosas and sangrias coming and the food was excellent! I hope time affords the opportunity to eat there again tomorrow!

As good an Italian meal as I ever had with a very welcoming staff. Looking forward to visiting next time in town. Veal Marsala, Spaghetti Bolognese and fried zucchini chips. Perfection

Excellent food and drink. Prices reasonable. Service was a bit laid back but we were not in a hurry. The "Smithsonian" was an excellent mixed drink.

Il Punto is one of a handful of fine restaurants in the Hell's Kitchen stretch of Ninth Avenue. You will enjoy the cooking as well as the professional staff at this comfortable place that is' open all day. If you're thinking of a cappuccino or grappa at 3:00 don't hesitate to walk in. You will be welcome.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
