The food was excellent. The service was a bit slow, but it may be because of the holidays and bigger table seatings that were around us at the time.

I am 50 and this place caters to an older crowd. Came to enjoy a Caesar made table side and that did not disappoint. Excellent. Best I have ever had. Rest was kind of meh. Pricey for what it was.

We waited almost 45 minutes past our reservation. The food was average at best. Traditional Italian? Maybe the menu but not the preparation. I wanted to love this place, the atmosphere and waitstaff were awesome but the food was disappointing.

We were in NYC for Thanksgiving. As a firm believer in Open Table I did a search for cuisine and Midtown, read the reviews and booked a table. We were not disappointed. Outstanding food and service. Try the Valdostana!

While visiting NYC from our new home in San Diego, Il Tinello was a must! From the warm welcome through dinner, service was classical and sincere. The extensive menu might scare some to think everything can't be great but a brand sampling by our party of five proves once again that Il Tinello is our number one choice for authentic Italian cuisine. Featuring several options for fish, pasta, meat, salads and soups and vegetable sides and entrees, the menu was perfect for us all. The Dover Sole, impeccably filleted table-side was firm and delicious in the simple lemon, caper sauce. The manicotti crepes were thin, and perfectly stuffed with ricotta in a tasty tomato sauce. Noticeably fresh and homemade. The bolognese was rich and clung to the pasta and was enjoyable. A special fettechini alfredo was made for one of our guests but all sampled it. Flawless execution of the classic sauce, rich and creamy and worthy of Alfredo's golden fork. The show stopper, for me anyway, was my eggplant Parmesan. A must order on any menu for me, but often a disappointment for this Italian-raised home cook/food enthusiast. The thinly sliced, peeled eggplant was crispy on the outside and tender inside. Covered in a zesty sauce and an adequate amount of mozzarella, the dish was thoroughly enjoyed by all. Finishing the meal with a lemoncello and slice of ricotta cheesecake left the party supremely satisfied and content with the restaurant selection, once again. Well done and Grazie!

My wife & i went for our anniversary & it was a grand slam. We shared a tableside Caesar salad that was delicious. She had the avocado salad which was great. I had the gnocchi bolognese that was to die for. For our entrees she had the black linguini pasta special which was amazing & I had the chicken scarpariello which was one of the best that I’ve ever had. The Il Tinello team went above & beyond to make our night special. Thank you for such a wonderful evening. I highly recommend this restaurant!

This was my third time. Once again it was a memorable experience. The food was superb and the service was top notch. I took my goddaughter and we both felt we were in a New York restaurant of our fantasies.
I had the Dover sole and it was delicious.
I will return soon!

I’ve eaten here twice. Once for dinner and once for lunch. Both meals were superb. The food is excellent. The service is of a level rarely seen today. From the moment I arrived until I left I felt the staff wanted one thing. For me ( the diner) to have a pleasant experience. One could say the menu is pricey. But in this case you get what you pay for. I plan to return as often as I can.
