After a hard day of shopping or just a comfortable, formal enough dinner or perhaps a long romantic lunch, this is your spot!! This is the kind of old school perfection that will keep you coming back! The fact that no matter how long it's been since your last visit the Captain will never forget your name!! He's a real life superman! The bar is small and right in the entry way so not so inviting, but its the dining room and the food you come for anyway!
The perfectly recited menu (preformed by wait staff that have probably been there as long as the building itself) along with the table side preparations are real stand outs! Of course so is the penne arrabbiata and the meat sauce (to be counted on, fantastic comfort food!)
The wine list is fun- a book of labels for you to thumb through, quite pleasing by anyone's standards! On every trip to NY we make a point of at least one meal at Il Tinello! An experience you can count on being great every time!
(& Like Seinfeld said, don't forget to tip the Captain! No, seriously, don't forget...)
