In a loft-like very fresh and light corner you will find this little gem of a restaurant which shares it's fire-wood oven with it's own bakery. The dining room has tall cast-iron windows, the furniture is minimalist and spacious. There is an unapologetic chic feel to the place yet it is all effortless and well-accomplished. This is embodied in its from outside seating area with big comfortable cushions and low-lying tables. They make good use of candles and small floral arrangements using local flowers.
The setting is appealing and the food does not disappoint. A concise menu with dishes that pay homage to the top-quality ingredients served. Portions are of generous size and well presented. I had the chicken and it was quite frankly formidable. The citrus flavouring of the meat was well-balanced with the freshness of the accompaniments. My brother had the seafood spaghetti (pictured) and it contained generous amounts of seafood and was very tasty indeed.
Perhaps what I enjoyed the most of Lalinda is that the simplicity of the decor transpires onto the plates in food that is unpretentious, flavoursome and honest.
The service is very attentive and not intrusive. Good food and wine knowledge. If I had to pick on something (and I'm a picky one indeed), salt was not withdrawn from the table when our deserts came and pepper was not on the table nor offered when the food came.
All in all, a new favourite. Would definitely come back although mostly for special occasions as although good value, it's slightly on the upper side of pricing though nothing out of the ordinary for Punta.
Tip: share the starters, we had a provolone cheese and some meat empanadas and it was enough to get us going for four of us.
