Is the food good? yes
Is the service good ? yes
Is the wine List good? well it s actually excellent
Would i Go back to Il Tinello? no
Dinner for 3 was 200 quid, for that money you d expect a different experience. The problem with Il Tinello is that it tries to be two restaurant in one (high end + informal/innovative italian eaterie) however it fails them both
I mean for £200 i could have much better Italian meals at other high end restaurants in London (from Angela hartnett Il Murano, to Bocca Di Lupo in Soho)…whereas if was looking for an informal and funny “trattoria style” experience this place doenst even come close to venues like Polpo (where a similar bill would have probably been not over the 100 quid mark)
So in conclusion; i see a lot of 10s on the reviews below and wonder how the plae it s actually judged!
i mean, dont get me wrong, you do get a good dining experience… but the restaurant is neither the buzzy friendly affordable local italian or one amongst the best 5 high-end italian in London
