Excellent food, impeccable service, and attractive decor.
This is old school fine dining at its best.
If you are seeking a special night out, this is it.
We love il Tinello!! Service was superior and food as always delicious! The wait staff is best in the city!
My husband and I ate year last year around the same time. We had a great experience then, and we did this past time. The service is excellent and the food delicious. We got to sit in the back of the restaurant so it felt cozy. The meal did not feel rushed at all. The food came out at a nice pace. Everything we ate was so tasty. We will definitely be back again.
Absolutely wonderful from the first moment. We were met with a warm and welcoming greeting. Shown immediately to our table in the restaurant with a cozy and inviting ambiance. The wait staff was exceptional; attentive without intruding, knowledgeable, friendly without being obsequious and added to the enjoyment of our evening. Finally the food, absolutely outstanding! The Dover Sole was exquisite and the Lobster And linguine was perfect. We loved the experience and will be back. I highly recommend Il Tinello!
Intimate ambiance. Quiet for a romantic evening or a business dinner. Food is delicious and true to Italian roots. Service is warm and friendly. Although I wouldn’t consider this every day dining it’s also a lovely repeat occasion restaurant.
GreT food. Perfect service!!
Another great experience at Il Tinello.....It is reliably terrific with wonderful food, environment and service. Absolutely recommended for any occasion (with the understanding it is not inexpensive.)
I had been searching for a great Italian restaurant in midtown ever since my long-time favorite went out of business. I am searching no longer. Il Tinello is classic and timeless. The service is excellent, welcoming and attentive without being stuffy. The pesto is fresh and flavorful, the linguine ala vongole is among the best I have ever had - my test for a great Italian restaurant. The insalata tre colori was perfection. The wine list has some affordable gems. It was so good, we went back two nights later and after just two visits we felt treated like regulars. I can't wait until my next visit.
As always excellent have never had a bad experience or for that matter even an average experience always first class in the food service and ambience areas
Loved it! Pasta yummy .. service terrific as was the desert.
Sheer perfection! Old world charm. Excellent service. Quiet. Best spaghetti carbonara I have had in the USA ever. Lovely appetizers and nice selection of specials. We will be back! Not a hip scene. A romantic couple’s spot or family place.
Food is good but cost is far too expensive
The pasta (rigatoni Schiavone) was overcooked and tasted like it had been microwaved although the server said their kitchen does not microwave pasta. The plate was scorching hot and a microwave seems the best explanation. The antipasto selection on the serving cart was confusing. We assumed that one could pick and choose which was not the case so we wound up with a little of everything including canned artichoke pieces. The wait staff have the bad habit of calling everyone by the term "my friend" even though it was our first and probably last time there.
Great make, 3rd visit & it gets better & better. Great food & waiters
An amazing dinning experience
We enjoyed my wife’s birthday dinner so much. The food was exquisite, only matched by the service.
Il Tinello is one of the old-line classic Italian restaurants in NYC. They wheel a cart of fresh antipasta ingredients to your table to start (burrata, tomatoes, grilled vegetables, peppers, prosciutto, etc. it’s a great start to the meal.
The menu is varied and they are very flexible is you want something else. One of us had the Dover sole, one had the lamb chops and I had veal saltimbacca. Everyone was happy. Desserts were also well presented at the table and fresh.
The service is always superb. Great place for a romantic dinner or dinner with another couple.
We came here last year. My wife asked me to make the same reservation, in other words it was memorable. We were greeted with pleasantness and seated immediately. The food was superb and the service outstanding. We will definitely come again next year.
Solid old school NYC Italian Resturant
Exceptional service and food. Our favourite Midtown Italian restaurant.
We had a wonderful experience at Il Tinello. We are long time customers of Il Tinello and are always pleased with our food and service at Il Tinello. Will return often.
This is exquisite fine dining in the Italian Tradition. Service, food and ambiance could not be exceeded, as was the attention to every detail lost in most great restaurants today. We cannot wait to go back.
A bit expensive, but it's the great food and the top notch service you're paying for and it's worth every cent
The best veal in town! Superb and elegant service. Beautiful dining room. Excellent range of menu items with a specialty of spagehetti carbonara. Old School in the very best sense possible. A wonderful New Year's eve dinner, a night we rarely go out for. Highly recommend.
Great dinner as always.
Everything was neat perfect except that they didn’t hold the table. I made a reservation and then was late. I called to see if they’d hold the table and they said no problem. But then we had to wait over an hour at the bar for the table. This has happened to me before at Tinello. And we are (were) regulars. I would definitely recommend Tinello, but as a walk-in. The reservation system is not really honored here.
My husband and I both had Dover Sole prepared table side in a light lemon wine sauce. Absolutely delicious! This was our first time dining here and the only negative thing I can say was we felt a little rushed throughout dinner. I was still drinking a glass wine and was asked 3 times if I was ready for dessert. At these prices I wouldn’t expect to be rushed.
Amazing dinner. Definitely come back. Only issue I had a. 730 reserve for 2 and didn’t get seated until 8:30
Wonderful experience as always.....everything was great
One of the worst meals ever served in NYC. This place should be ashamed charging these prices. DO NOT GO HERE. There are too many good restaurants to waste your time and money.
Ordered a Filet mignon , medium rare, arrived well done.
Although the meal was taken back and then cooked correctly , my wife’s meal was nearly finished by the time I started mine s the whole meal is then ruined in terms of an experience. Shame as I had high hopes for the meal.
Always first class dinning.
Excellent food and service.
Despite having a team of dedicated and professional waiters, management does not care or respect reservations. Additionally, food quality was mediocre and expensive. We will not return.
Not the Il Tinello I love(d). Listrning to loud, drunken diners yelling over each over does not make for an enjoyable meal.
It’s our go to place for GREAT holiday season lunch.
As always an outstanding experience in all respects. The tranquility and refinement of the restaurant is welcome particularly at this time of year when the City is so hectic.
great service and delicious food every time I eat there. I have been going there for 10 years, always a wonderful experience.
Excellent Service and Great food! A lot of attention to detail. Every course was beautifully presented
