Sicuramente buono, qualche miglioramento ancora possibile.

A remarkable experience. I've been there with some friends and we opted for the 10 courses "degustazione" menù. I must say it was really a journey of taste and smells.

This was my wife and my second visit to Tino's, and it was again wonderful. The food is adventurous and delicious, melding new flavours with the best of the old, and the service is impeccable. The dessert wine was a revelation! I do not usually like dessert wine.

We were taken to Il Tino by friends. It's small and located on a small side street in Ostia. Our service was top notch; the waiter fluent in both Italian and English. We were welcomed with a glass of prosecco and a fresh oyster in the half shell. Our food for the most part was tasty, inventive, and artfully presented.... More

This restaurant was recommended highly by friends, and now I see why. The service was impeccable, the food sublime and adventurous, and the wine superb. We had the tasting menu - oyster, amazing bloody mary (I do not even like bloody mary!), shrimp tempura, spaghetti with rocket pesto, sea bass and horse radish. Even the bread was out of this...

We have sought out restaurants all around the world and were very impressed with Il Tino. The service was amazing. We asked the Maitre D to match wine with each course and he gave us a fascinating tour of Italian wines from small regions impeccably matched to the food. the food itself was fabulous. Even the bread and bread sticks... More

I've been here several times, and every meal was better than the previous one. Good food, with a strong emphasis on the italian tradition but always with some intriguing innovation. The wines are offered with an accompanying explanation about their history, peculiarities and so on. I love it

I had the 6 course tasting menu that you select from the regular menu. They started me with the freshest, most delicious oyster and a local beer. This was followed by a series of beautiful little plates, my favorites being a beautiful tartare of fish and the sunchoke tortellini with lobster. I also chose the wine testing to go with... More

A fantastic place to eat, great service, food and atmosphere. We went here to eat twice in the days we stayed in Lido di Ostia. Interesting wine menu.
