Six of us had lunch at Il Tinello yesterday. Ours was the only table at lunch - which can be an ominous sign. But the meal was full of pleasant surprises from the word go. The server was extremely attentive, his cocktail recommendations for each...More

There are a lot of Italian restaurants in NYC, but this one is EXCEPTIONAL. All of the food was fantastic and the service was superb. As a result, although the evening was not inexpensive, one feels like it is well worth the cost. The restaurant...More

The food and service at his restaurant is incredible! We ate at some great restaurants on our recent trip to NY (including The Gotham Grill & Grammarvy Tavern), but this was our favorite dinner and it was half the price! Everything we had was fabulous!

Really nice place w/ attentive service and great food. A bit on the formal side for me, but not overbearing like some places. A lot of table-side activity, like salad prep, whole fish presentation, desert and antipasti carts, etc. , Did not order anything that...More

I had a 5pm reservation and the staff was more than accommodating by sitting us a quarter to 5. The service was truly amazing. Their menu isn't one size fits all. They can change a dish to your liking. My shrimp was a little undercooked...More
