    Among all the fast food and chain style restaurants in Mt. Juliet, Mirko is a refreshing change. The fresh made pasta is delightful and so favorable. The dishes are not smothered in gooey cheese and drowning in sauce. Sure hope that more Mt. Juliet residents take the time to visit Mirko Pasta, they will be impressed.

    When I first moved to Mt Juliet TN, good friends brought me to MIRKO. The ambience, the food, and the service all combined to make me feel like I'd found my first "neighborhood" food place. Since then I have brought out of town guests, friends, and most recently, celebrated my birthday there. Love it!

    Not your typical Italian restaurant. Very noisy and server not very confident in what she was doing, maybe new. Some dishes very spicy and not typical of Italian. Don't expect a vintage Italian restaurant menu. Make their own pasta which was good.

    We live in the area, and have found the food, service, and quality consistent. We love the dip they bring out with the bread! It is a bean dip with olive oil and pairs well with their bread, which is fresh. The pasta is notable in that its made by them, and comes in a variety of flavors and shapes, with their proprietory sauces to choose from: your choice to mix any pasta with any sauce. But they also have delicious things besides pasta, and desserts to make your mouth water! (tiramesu)

    this place is amazing. the location in mount Juliet is in a small strip mall and could be easily overlooked. Pasta is quite delicious as are the sauces. Better than some of the other local Italian retaurants. The home made meatballs are to die for.

    The food is great. The overall atmosphere is enjoyable and the music is quiet enough that you can have a conversation with friends. My favorite sauce is the pink sauce especially with the spanich and cheese ravioli.

    This was without a doubt the best Italian food I've ever had The fresh pasta was out if Hey honey I obviously was not expecting schools to be closed today again but I have an appt at 10:15 with my cardiologist and I was wondering if we could drop the kids off for a while I asked Tammy first but she has the same problem. She has a 10:30 appt this world and I have never had as good as their eggplant Parmesan. The waitress was very accommodating and had no problem adjusting our orders to the way we wanted them The fact that its so close to home made it just that more appealing I also have to say I was quite surprised at how inexpensive it is for the quality of the food . Olive Garden just lost our frequent business

    We really enjoyed our first visit to Mirko! The specialties from Valentines Day were carried over the week and we had the best time being loved by the staff to embellish our memories enjoying a great lovers' week. Their tomato sauce truly embellished the way the pasta was presented with the vegetable and meat/seafood entree. We will enjoy visiting Mirko off Briley Parkway on eastbound Lebanon Pike's northside for our next trip to the Grand Ole Opry. We first loved our Mount Juliet location as a real neighborhood gem! Management restoring our lost Open Table points made the their deserts even a sweeter final touch.

    Most restaurants do a special limited menu that night and Mirko had a great deal for dinner for two from their regular menu. This is not fine dining but the menu has a nice variety of Italian specialties and their specialty item, the fresh handmade pasta with a variety of sauces is the highlight. There were no complaints about The food from either of us, it was exactly what we expected - solid quality, well prepared and tasty. However, the service could use a little work - our server was very nice, knew the menu and was helpful but our appetizer was still on the table when salads came out, entrees came out before we were finished with salads and dessert came to the table before our dinner plates were even cleared.

    This was a third visit to Mirko. There are so many items to choose from on the menu and I haven't had one that I didn't like. The pastas are made fresh and the signature dishes are delightful. Even though the tables are somewhat close together, you still have the feel of being just with your own group. The service is unremarkable.

    Glad we discovered via OpenTable that this is a full restaurant with wine and beer. Street view made it look more like fast food or self-service. Darryl was excellent as our waiter. Ordered the Ravioli for lunch but beware - the portion size is humongous. Thank goodness for take-home boxes. Had two more meals out of it.

    We went at 6 on a Friday evening. Not too busy when we arrived, but a wait by the time we left. The food was great for the most part. The white bean dip that accompanied the bread was rather bland but the entrees were all very good and the tiramisu was exceptional. The service was solid if a little slow once the restaurant got crowded. Fortunately, it was never to the point if frustrating. The pasta box they bring out to describe the choices is a nice touch. The ambiance is much nicer than it would appear from the location (in a strip mall) which was a pleasant surprise. All in all, I would recommend it and we will return. FYI: kids eat free on Mondays according to the waiter.

    We are big fans of Mirko. We love Italian food and eat it frequently. Mirko has fresh pasta and everything is so chocked full of flavor. We were a little taken back by the prices on our first visit but it is well worth the extra money because the flavor is amazing. Service is great too.

    I was so excited when I heard a new Italian place was opening in Mt. Juliet I had to try it out, and best of all they were on Open Table! My wife and I loved it. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable anou meals (Zucca and Tagliatelle Crab) were fantastic! So happy to have a high quality dining experience and not have to find the craziness of Providence.

    I was pleasantly surprised to found about this new restaurant in Mt Juliet. We often times have to leave the east side of town where we live to eat some place with variety and outside the chain restaurants you can find anywhere. We went to Mirko's on Mother's day for a lunch/dinner. I had the lasagna verde, my children had fussili and butternut squash spagetti with pomodoro and classic italian sauces, respectively. They enjoyed it all. We shared a caprese that although it didn't have the normal basalmic vinegar expected was still tasty. My husband had their chicken marsala and ate it all which is a good sign. They provided free of charge for mother's day a tiramisu which was delicious. I would go again and often.

    Mirko's is a cool little hip spot with unbelievably great food! We were totally blown with authentic Italian food. My wife and I started with beef carpaccio. It came with capers, a Worcestershire dressing, capers and shave parmesan. It was wonderful! I had lasagna - Outstanding!!!. Best I've had since Italy! Warning - this is not your typical Stouffers style lasagna but the authentic version. My wife had their homemade pasta with crab, brandy type cream sauce, sundried tomatoes and green peas. She darned near licked her plate clean. If you like authentic Italian, I can vouch that this place is the real deal. Highly recommend. Can't wait to go back and try desserts (we were too full). Can't wait to dine al fresco on the patio
