Nice ambience and great Italian kitchen as usual.
Service suffered a little bit that night. Too much tourist style bling bling and small errors concerning service.
Expecting better next time again
Went here for a social dinner with colleagues. It was a great selection. Delicious meal, excellent service, and amazing dessert cart.
Great friends from different parts of the world getting together for an outstanding time together with the best service, foodand ambience ever
Eten was lekker, maar niet heel speciaal.
De bediening was vriendelijk, maar we waren 1 van de laatsten en volgens mij wilden ze graag naar huis...
We went to Il Tinello for a birthday dinner based on other positive reviews and were not disappointed. It is difficult to say which was better, the food or the service, since they were both excellent. The service was really genuine and you just knew they wanted you to have an enjoyable dining experience. As afr as the food, we are Italian and can say this was the real deal. We are definitely going back the next time we are in NYC - highly recommended....Buonissimo!
I stumbled upon Il Tinello a couple of years back, when visiting NYC with colleagues, and wanted my husband to experience the same wonderful food and service I had that first time. We weren't disappointed. We were charmed by the attentive waitstaff, and delighted with our food. We'd definitely go back again!
Dinner was delicious,great wine list, amazing waiter with great personalities,dessert was excellent as well and overall was a beautiful night
We have continued to visit Il Tinello whenever we are in NYC. It has never disappointed us.

Elegant place, great food and quiet, attentive staff. But you do pay for that.
Food + service, great, skip the desert, a two star
First, I poured over reviews trying to pick the perfect Italian restaurant for our one day in NYC. I know some of the reviews are mixed so trust me when I saw I am sooo happy we chose this place. It is quaint and charming and exactly the atmosphere we were wanting for an authentic Italian dinner experience. Upon arrival we were seated quickly and offered drinks. After drinks were served we were each brought a piece of bruschetta, and a plate of olives and parmesan cheese..complementary!!) Our drinks were never empty and literally everything we ordered was phenomenal! We started with appetizers of burrata, prosciutto, and raw oysters. We ordered caesar salad (which was made fresh, table side and was unbelievable. And I thought my homemade caesar was special...doesn't hold a candle to thiers. Our entrees were gnocchi, veal parm, meat ravioli (special of the night), and chicken piccata....every dish was better than the next! We each tried each others food and I could not have picked a favorite if I tried. For dessert we had the tiramisu which was the perfect ending to an absolutely exquisite dinner! If you are trying to decide...choose this place! I am so happy we did!
Outstanding food, service and overall experience. Will definitely be back soon!!
We make sure to have at least one dinner here every time we come to NYC. The staff is fabulous - your drink is in your hand practically before you’re done ordering it, and the wait-team attends to your every need without hovering. We always start with a Caesar salad, prepared tableside, then usually order whatever the special pasta is that day, although everything I’ve tried on the menu is excellent.
Loved it, second visit and we will be back.
We come here every time we get to NY. The pasta is amazing & you can actually hear the person across the table from you.
Awesome Italian restaurant in NYC
Outstanding and consistent dining experience. Food is superb. Fish always fresh. Large interesting menu. Willing to modify dishes to meet tastes and dietary needs. The service is always terrific and impeccable. Owner/maitre'd is there and keeps close eye on team, which clearly loves working there because almost never changes. One of very best in NYC and the world. It is our favorite in NYC.
Place was great!!! Food was amazing!!! Service was great!!! We were sorry we couldnt stay there longer due to a play we had to go to... definitely will be back!!!!
Wonderful!! The food and service are top notch! We try to visit every time we visit the city and are never disappointed!!
Fantastic as usual. My go-to for fine Italian dining in the city.
Classic traditional Italian meal with many specials and a chef willing to customize. Phenomenal dinner spot.
Service was excellent. food was delicious, atmosphere was perfect - busy but not noisy.
In NYC for one night and looked up restaurants near our hotel. After reading reviews I booked Il Tinello. Very old school service. Attentive staff, great menu although we never got to the menu because ordered some of the specials of the night-tuna tartare was a light beginning. I had veal Milanese and it was a wonderful portion seasoned to perfection. I didn’t think I wanted dessert but it was impossible to say no when the dessert cart was rolled to us. The tiramisu was dressed with berries, chocolate sauce. Amazing. Our first choice the next time we are in the city.
Great food and service... easy to have a conversation without yelling... very low noise level
Absolutely. I already did. The service was exceptionally good.
Il Tinello is an extraordinary dining experience. The food is outstanding. The service, ambience and the whole experience are wonderful. Fish is always fresh and prepared perfectly. It is a fantastic restaurant. Clearly one of best anywhere in world. And we have been all over world.
Awesome Restaurant... amazing food and service..... can’t wait to go back!!
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Every dish we selected was delicious. The wait staff was extremely attentive. They had recommendations when we asked. They checked to see what order we wanted our dishes to come out in. They gave us space to talk and enjoy our meal. I highly recommend this restaurant.
Impeccable service and outstanding food. Love this restaurant!
Required was a quiet table for business conversation, excellent food, attentive but not intrusive service — and a good wine list.
Mission accomplished on all counts.
A go to restaurant that has not disappointed in 20+ years.
Excellent food and service at affordable prices
Constant quality every time I have there
Favorite restaurant in NYC! Food, service, wine all excellent. Small and cozy. Appropriate for business or pleasure dining experience. Have been many times and will go again soon.
Great meal in NYC, delicious food and good service.
AWESOME evening! Really enjoyed it. Will definitely be back again. I really enjoyed the bar atmosphere. Very intimate.
This has become "our special spot". We celebrated our wedding anniversary here, just the two of us, and it was perfect. The food is beyond delicious, the service is just right, and the ambiance is the ideal combination of intimate and joyful.
Excellent NYC Experience!
Just wasn’t up to it’s usual standard.
Excellent Italian restaurant. Wonderful service. Food is always delicious. Good pacing of the meal.
Provides a quiet elegant ambiance, sophisticated, marvelously old world. Best food and service. Dover sole divine
What a great place, atmosphere and service. Pricey, with tip and a few cocktails plan on about $100 pp. but for a special occasion why not. Food was fabulous and staff engaging and professional. A warm atmosphere also. Highly recommend.
