Great Italian in NYC. The appetizers are great: best burrata I've had. Also enjoyed some fried peppers with fresh anchovy on them. The anchovy was great, not one bit fishy. The food is great and presentation is great. The restaurant is a bit dated and old and looks like it hasn't been updated since 1978, but the food makes up... More

Enjoyed a great meal at Il Tinello. Service was great food was delicious. All guest enjoyed their selections. Table side caesar salad is must, best I have ever had. Prices were typical for NYC but worth it

Had a work dinner here, mid week, and the place was jumping! From the moment I walked in the door, the staff treated me (and everyone else who followed) with grace and civility. I had a cocktail at the small bar lounge to the right as you first enter the restaurant (the evidently serve meals at the bar too as... More

Went by myself and was treated to a really nice meal and good conversation. I ate at the bar and they made a special (vegan) meal for me. food was really good and done perfectly.

The food was great, I had the special appetizer and the special sole fish and it was great. I don;t know about the expense (someone else paid), but I don't think it was cheap.

Friends had recommended this place and we found ourselves a gem. Reservations are probably a must. We each had a cocktail and a glass of wine. My wife had spinach and egg soup, scampi with broccoli rabe. I had manicotti and saved space for ricotta cheese cake.. We were both delighted with our meal. Eating out in Manhattan is not... More

We felt we won the lottery when we stumbled upon this wonderful and intimate Italian restaurant. The service? The waitstaff is very attentive and proudly describes the offerings. The Food? Authentic Italian dishes made with the freshest of ingredients. Don't miss it.

An excellent evening, with great food and wine. The restaurant is extremely popular and very busy. Specials cost much much more than what is on the menucard - be careful and remember to ask for price.

This is a first class restaurant on a dirty street in Manhattan (Mayor please note...). The service was excellent, the food first class. the Minestrone soup was unique - obviously with fresh ingredients, not like the usual canned variety. The chicken scarparelli was delectable. My only complaint is that the potatoes and carrots on the plate were tiny and should... More
