Il Tinello is a throw back to fine dining in NYC when waiters wore tuxedos and clients dressed for lunch and dinner. It is always a pleasure to return here as their food is superb and their service is first class. There are many daily specials (always surprised that the waiter can recall them all!) and the a la carte offerings are extensive. If you have any special needs or allergies the chef is happy to adapt his dishes to accommodate your preference. This is a special place!

I was introduced to this restaurant many years ago, and I go back to it on every trip to Manhattan. Knowledgeable waiters in full tuxedo dress cater to your every need, readily adapt the menu to your preferences whenever possible, and explain the expansive menu in appetizing detail. The dishes brought to you by them are perfectly prepared, delightfully presented, and exquisite through the last bite. This family run business has been a staple of Midtown for decades, and it continues to please in every way. The intimate, quiet atmosphere is a welcome respite from the hustle and bustle of many noisier restaurants in the City.

While it can be considered a little on the expensive side, think about where you are. There are few bargains when it comes to fine dining in NYC. Il Tinello was well worth the money. Food and service were excellent. We thoroughly enjoyed everything about the restaurant. Plus it was well appointed and quiet - you could actually carry on a conversation with your companion. Try it, you will like it
