“Dreadful food but nice staff...”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2013

I won't be needing more salt until 2016! Awful, simply awful... How could you turn good, basic ingredients into such a disaster? The beer was cold though... That is the nicest thing that can be said about our pasta dinner at El Punto.... Keep on walking and don't look back...

“Basic Italian Cuisine”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2013

Nothing special at El punto. The ambiance is pretty
basic an the menu selection is pretty basic too.

But, everything we tried was very good. The pasta bolegnese
and the pizza was very good. The ingrediants all tasted fresh
and the presentation was good too.

Prices are much more economical than other italain
choices in Antigua.

Overall....very good.

“Simple and Good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2013

The food here is basic but good and filling with large
portions. The flavor of the bolegnese sauce is very
good.

Salads are fresh and the dressings tatsty.

Really good value and service.

“Good Value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2013

Compared to others, El Punto provides good food at a very
reasonable price.

The pastas are good. We had pasta bolegnese and we shared a pizza.

Both were very good. So, was the service.

“Good Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2013

We liked El Punto.

Pastas are all good and so is the pizza.
Sauces are tasty too.

Prices are very good.

Service was attentive.

Worth a visit.
