Phenomenal Service

Go for the phenomenal service and old-guard dining experience. The food is very good but truly, this is more about the service experience. We started off with the antipasto from the cart - fresh portabello mushrooms with rosemary, marinated peppers, artichoke hearts, seafood and prosciutto, among other things. Everything was freshly prepared table-side and tasted wonderful. Our next course was a lobster ravio... view more

Best Italian in New York!

I would recommend Il Tinello to everyone. Simply put, this is on my list of Top 5 restaurants in New York City. The decor is old fashioned Italian, the service and food are magnificent to say the least. I have lived in New York City for 10 years and my job enables me to dine out almost daily so I have visited hundreds of restauraunts. I look forward to my experiences at Il Tinello. Francessca and Mario treat ev... view more

We normally would not go to a restaurant of this caliber so spontaneously-- on a ""non-special"" occasion--especially being dressed casually, in jeans-- nor would we ever dine so early (5:30 pm)--we just happened not to have had lunch-- and as... view more

Rip off

This restaurant was highly recommended to me by a well-known TV celebrity. I regularly eat at many of the finest and most expensive restaurants in the world and they all accommodate special requests. I ordered three Caesar salads without anchovies. They proceeded to make the salads table-side with large pieces of anchovies. When I politely complained they began to sell me on why the salad would taste better wit... view more

great service

Il Tinello is a nice small restaurant that had great service and food. Although a bit expensive it was a great place to go for an anniversery dinner.

classy

The moment you are seated the service begins to shine. Not overbearing, not pushing the most expensive wine, but intelligent and helpful captins, waiters and service par excellence. From your first course, served perfect to the right temperature, the tatse will delight you. The main entree can be fish, incredible for the 3 various dishes served at our table, to veal and other meats. The side dishes were equally t... view more

Going to Il Tinello is like taking a trip back home to your mother's kitchen! All dishes are fresh, delicious & perfect. The service is impeccable and exceeds even the toughest of standards. Mario, the owner and host treats you like you were a king. MAGNIFICO!
