Il Tinello is one of our favorite restaurants in New York. The service strikes that balance of attentiveness without being intrusive. The broad menu makes it appropriate for all kinds of people. LOVE this place.

Took my wife and daughter out for my wife's birthday. We were able to sit outside due to covid pandemic. Only one other couple was outside with us. Heat lamps available. Nicholas, the primary waiter was amazing. Food was delicious and although expensive, was worth it for a special occasion.

We have not been in NYC to dine in 6 months but the first place we went back to dine is Il Tinello. Still the same great gracious service and delicious food. It is so great to be back! Hope it will be often.

Once again, Il Tinello was excellent in all respects. I have written reviews of Il Tinello before saying just how good it is, and now I would say in addition how reliably excellent it is. I go often and am never disappointed in the food, service, or ambiance, and I have very high expectations because of all my previous outstanding experiences. So I highly recommend.

Overall solid experience. Table was happy with the food quality. Service was good but oddly when delivering the food, it was like a food auction for BOTH the first and second course - they couldn't figure out who had what food. Pretty amatuer hour in my opinion but wouldn't prohibit a return.

My favorite Italian restaurant in the city closed earlier this year and I was excited to try to find another spot to fill its void. This is definitely it! Highly recommended.
