Il Tinello Ratings and Reviews
I have been dining at Il Tinello for many years and every time the service, food and ambience is world class! Every time I am in NYC (live in CT) I find time to have an enjoyable dinner at Il Tinello with my beautiful wife and/or good friends. So very special.
Ask for a table by the wall otherwise u r in the middle of service people walking by u on both sides. Hope u will be away from the rally loud groups that r here for business dinners as it is hard to hear. Food was great, service wonderful. I would recommend
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.
It was October 31, our second time at this place, and kind of disappointing. Fist time, in July, we were completely charmed by the place. But this time the food was just ok. The steak was good, but lobster spaghetti, the special, came out with lots of shells mixed with pasta!, the sauce was too heavy, and they charge more then $50 for that kind of a dish! Appetizers also could be better, especially tuna tar-tar. The deserts last time impressed with the size and the quality, this time around it seemed like they were half the size and almost half the quality. The services was good, but it lacked some warmth and honesty. Got to give compliments to a bartender, margaritas were perfect. Overall it was not the best experience, but, honestly, not the worst, so I think, we will give it another try just because we remember how great it was the first time we came here. And, I got to ask owner/manager, someone a question: if you ask what is the occasion for dinner, and I wrote "birthday", wouldn't it be nice if you acknowledged this fact somehow?
Food was outstanding as was the service. Host and waiters were very gracious. Sadly though, I had requested the tableside Zabaglione as a surprise for my boyfriend’s birthday but it never happened. Thus, I stormed out after our meals enraged which ruined our first time experience at Il Tinello. For a 4 star restaurant, this is unacceptable. We won’t be returning.
After many years of great restaurants in NYC, we think this was the absolute best. From
the greeting to dessert, every single dish was spot on. I cannot say enough abut this
excellent Italian restaurant. Immediately our favorite, we will return here always!
Not to be missed.
Absolutely a wonderful birthday dinner!!! We were seated as soon as we arrived at the restaurant, and the service was outstanding!! The waiter was impeccable and the food was delicious. I had a spinach ravioli with vodka sauce that was topped with mozzarella that was a special for the day and my husband had the veal saltimbocca. Both were phenomenal!! Creme brûlée and tiramisu for desert finished our meal and were superb as well. Can't wait to return to NYC again and dine here again!!!
as always Il tinello never disappoints-great food, and great service. Perfect for a business dinner or a night out with friends. The food is always fresh and cooked to perfection. Recently went gluten free and they were able to accommodate my request without flinching.
