We were here last year and wrote an excellent review. We weren't sure of our plans so we arrived without a reservation. Although the restaurant was very busy they found us a good table and we had Rosie as our server again. All the food was great and service prompt and friendly. It is a very short walk to the... More

I had lunch here and thoroughly enjoyed the chicken mofongo with a side of Tostados. The rooftop location gives a somewhat panoramic view of old San Juan, and the service was attentive and friendly. Altogether, a great experience

I picked Il Punto it was a nice day and a short walk from Penn Plaza. We were very pleased. While I thought we would have... More

Very nice, comfortable restaurant with fantastic staff. If not a family run business, it certainly feels like it. Food and service were outstanding. I would highly recommend Il Punto and will definitely return.

Il Punto is a bit out of the way, on the West side of 9th Avenue near the Port Authority Terminal. But it is worth the trek. The pastas are always perfectly prepared, on this visit our party of four sample the orrechiete, linguini, and ziti malanzane. All wonderfully prepared.

Thank Dave F

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood 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 heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the 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.
