I've eaten at El Punto several times. Their wood burning oven produces great pizzas, and they have an extensive pizza menus.

Following the suggestion from the property manager where we are renting we went to El Pinto in Barrio Center near the house, although there is another location closet to the tourist district. It was cozy, quiet, and very tasty. We ordered the Magherita Pizza and Spaghetti. Both were very good, but if you insist on them being exactly what you... More

We take lunch hear almost once a week, usually sitting outside weather permitting. The pizza is delicious, what I consider authentic Italian style, and a very good value. The service is attentive and friendly. A great choice for lunch, dinner or to take home.

We didn't necessarily expect to find great pizza in Mexico but El Punto proved us wrong! Really couldn't fault them, lots of choice and good value.

Decent place where two people can easily share a pie and have leftovers. Pizza is pretty decent for Mexico. Staff and ambience are OK, but nothing special. Overall if you want cheapish pizza (under 60-70 pesos per person) this looks like a decent bet.

We came here by accident, as it is not in the main "tourist streets" but very happy we did. The pizza's from the sood fired oven taste great and the upstairs room has a nice Italian family restaurant feel to it.

Fresh ingredients, delicious pizzas. Wood oven traditional style pizzas. Try the salami pizza or anchovies with olives, although they have a great variety to chose from.

My travel buddy and I went here as the reviews on here looked pretty good so we thought we'd check it out. As suggested by the reviews we chose a table upstairs on the balcony. We shared an onion pizza and the bacon salad- the pizza was huge and the salad was a pretty healthy size too. It was delicious!... More
