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!

Discovered this restaurant for a Valentines Day dinner, and returned again this year for dinner. Knowledgeable and attentive staff. Excellent food and cozy atmosphere. If I lived in NYC I’d be there at least every month.

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.

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.

Felt s bit rushed. One meal was fine one was mediocre. Antipasto serving was small and underwhelming. Quite expensive.

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.

The food was just okay. Not even close to worth the price tag. The service was exceptional, but completely over-attentive for my taste. I felt like I was on display. I wouldn’t go again.

We had such a wonderful meal. There not many restaurants that provide really good service without getting in the way. The service was perfect. The food is several notches better than the competition. We enjoyed both specials and regular menu items. We will be back.
