This is my second visit in less than a month. It has all the trappings of a high end NYC restaurant but feels a bit like a neighborhood spot. Probably pricey for the average person but in my opinion well worth it.

Il Tinello is always stellar! It's a "must go" every time I'm in NYC! It's cozy and comfortable and you feel like you are in Italy ... go and enjoy some delicious food! And DON'T skip the dessert!

My step daughter and I had an opportunity to dine last evening and I must say it was an amazing experience. We were graciously greeted upon entering and the first thing you notice is the high level of decoration. Beautiful paintings, table settings and the waitstaff dressed in classic style. The food was on point...tuna tartare, cannelloni stuffed with meat and the veal saltimbocca were flavorful and classically presented. The dessert: profiteroles with vanilla ice cream and tiramisu were absolutely delicious. I would highly recommend this restaurant if you're looking for classic Italian presentations and flawless service.

The usual great experience and one of our favorites: attentive, professional service, terrific food and quiet atmosphere where you can actually hear your dining companion without having to shout over music or poor acoustics. (There is no music here which is a plus in our view.)The atmosphere is romantic so this is a great place for a date. There's lots of variety and the food is top drawer. They are also accommodating for special needs (e.g. low sodium diets or vegetarian). All in all it's a thoroughly enjoyable dining experience. However, do expect a bill to match. This is not the place to go if you're on a tight budget.

The specials are surprisingly overpriced. They mention the specials and then you are surprised when you get the check . I had the most expensive pasta in my life here $42 ! The price of fresh Porcini mushrooms.

Good service in attractive surroundings. Proximity to Carnegie Hall a big plus. Menu prices on the high side, and be sure to ask prices of the specials offered or you may be in for an unpleasant surprise when the bill arrives.

If you want to be treated like a king and/or a queen, go to Il Tinello. From the moment you walk in the door, you are treated like royalty by the owner (who greets you at the door), and the numerous waiters, AND even the busboys, doting on you. While this restaurant may cost you more than most restaurants, it is worth the trip for a special occasion to experience the attentiveness of the staff and a very fine meal. The Caesar salad prepared at tableside is a MUST! So good! My friend wanted a shrimp cocktail, which was not on the menu, but the staff made sure she got one. I ordered a special appetizer (homemade rigatoni with porcini mushrooms, mozzarella, and mushrooms). I asked to have it with a red sauce, and the waiter talked me out of it, saying it really should be served the way it was described. I am SO glad I listened to him! He KNEW I would love it the way it was suggested. He definitely knew everything there was to know about the food being served and made many great suggestions to my group. What a wonderful meal! And the dessert table, which is wheeled around to the tables so you can actually SEE what the dessert is, is a great idea so you can see what is being offered ahead of time so you can save room for a delicious treat to end your meal. We love this restaurant, and even with the many, many restaurants in NYC, this is still one of our very favorites. The staff is impeccable, and the food and service are consistently amazing!

Went here for pre theater dinner. Lovely place with waiters very attentive. Classic Italian place. Very old world NY restaurant vibe. My wife and I really enjoyed it. The fresh raspberries with zabaglione to wrap up the meal was absolutely delicious. Just a short walk to Carnegie Hall.

Very authentic Italian restaurant with delicious options. Most things on the menu can be altered to be gluten free for those with celiac disease or allergies. Caesar salads handmade at the table were wonderful and my gluten free shrimp Fra Diavolo was the best GF dish I’ve had. Will definitely make this spot in my every trip rotation when I come to Manhattan.

Admittedly we were quite late for our reservation, but the service was terrible. Our waiter could not have been less friendly, or.less attentive. Very disappointing. The food was okay--not great, but good.

Il Tinello remains as one of the last Italian grande dames in New York. Food and service are outstanding in a wonderful old world setting. Order almost whatever you want and they will figure out how to make it for you. It is pampered experience.
