The food was outstanding the maître d’ was exceptional the waiters were great the wine was fabulous but there was a table of young people that were screaming and yelling that made the experience a little disappointing overall next time I would appreciate if the waiters could tell the people to table to tone it down a little bit because those of us who are eating there on a special occasion would like a little bit of less of a bar room type of volume of noise

Excellent food and service. Full menu is available which isn’t true at many NYC restaurants right now. True fine dining in midtown.

Il Tinello is always a delightful experience. This was our first time since the Pandemic and they haven't missed a step. The food is amazing; the service is exceptionally professional; and, the setting is perfect New York.

Great to have one of the very best New York has to offer, back!!!

We celebrated our 52 wedding anniversary lunch at this amazing restaurant. We were treated like royalty. The food was top notch. We had trouble deciding which happily means we will return again and again. The complementary zucchini fries started an amazing meal. The hot antipasto was perfect as was the special soft shell crab and soup. Our servers were attentive, knowledgeable, and fun. A not to miss delight

We are SO GLAD that il Tinello survived the pandemic. Still a gem of a restaurant. We asked for a variation on the saltimbocca (try it with sage instead of spinach) and the kitchen had no problem with that. It was perfect! The Amaretto cookies with cappuccino at the end of dinner are amazing. il Tinello - we so happy you are still perfect!

The best Italian in the city, hands down! Every bite is delicious no matter what you order! Highly recommend! Also if you sit outside, and are there at the right time, it’s a beautiful spot to watch the sunset!!

Old style true Italian restaurant. The caesar salad is made at table side and is excellent! All the dishes can be adjusted or made to order. Definitely a must in midtown!

Wonderful evening of dining. The ambience and the service and the quiet make it a special evening. The food is a good match for the environment. After over a year of quarantine, it is a most wonderful evening dining experience.

Great old school Italian, jacketed waitstaff, courteous and attentive service. They have not changed post pandemic with great food and made to order off the menu requests are no problem. Their table side warm Zagblione is the best and will keep us coming back.

Took my wife and daughter out for my wife's birthday. We were able to sit outside due to covid pandemic. Only one other couple was outside with us. Heat lamps available. Nicholas, the primary waiter was amazing. Food was delicious and although expensive, was worth it for a special occasion.
