“Not your usual Italian fare and worth a visit”
Reviewed June 14, 2013

Just a short walk from the theatre district, Il Punto is a wonderful change of pace dining experience. Although the cuisine is Italian, the offerings are not the usual fare. We shared an onion gelato with green salad and shrimp that was delicious and refreshing. The striped bass and branzino were cooked to perfection with just the right amount of seasoning. The service is warm and professional but not intrusive. We've dined here a lot and we are always surprised at the variety and delelicious taste of the specials. This is a very special restaurant that is worth the extra few blocks' walk.

“Grabbed a quick bite - great food & fun at the bar”
Reviewed April 21, 2013

My wife and I stopped here before last Saturday's Crossroads Guitar Festival at the Garden. We didn't have a reservation and opted to sit at the bar. Armando took great care of us; we split a pasta dish and a salad, both very, very tasty. For what it's worth Armando pours a nice drink as well.
