Was not as exceptional as it was when I was last there 2 years ago. Tables were too close together and we were seated next to a large noisy table. The bread basket once left on the table was missing. Waiter now comes around with basket offering you a piece or two of bread. Service was not as attentive as previous visit. I was not the only person at my table that felt that way.

acknowledged my birthday without prompting, I had written in notes that it was our first time and my birthday. Nice to know they heed the notes.

The restaurant is nice for special occasions only. The price point is a little high for casual dinning. Very romantic atmosphere and food is delicious.

When one chooses Il Mulino
When one chooses Il Mulino they can expect a staff that welcomes you, immediately starts offering high quality complimentary treats to start . fresh food served with bountiful tastes and at robust temperatures adding to that freshness/attention to detail and as your evening progresses the staff know how to give that privacy so you can enjoy the experience. Il Mulino always offers their best from start to finish.

Haven't been to Il Mulino in a while but chose it for a nice 50th birthday celebration and it didn't disapoint. We were never rushed, food was great. We had Osso Bucco, a ravioli special, Chicken Parm, and a shrimp pasta. All were good. No appetizers as they give you so many great samples in the beginning while you have a cocktail. The service is as good as any restuarant I have been to. The complimentary grappa was a nice touch.
Need to come more often

I planned my wife's 35th birthday party here. They were able to accommodate 10 people. I reserved a amazing chocolate cake for our party.
The service was excellent. My wife and I were very pleased with every detail.
Thank you IL Mulino for making this special occasion perfect!

Absolutely phenomenal experience
What can I say that hasn't already been said about Il Mulino? You hear great things about a place, decide to try it out, and this restaurant did NOT disappoint. Took my wife Saturday night for our anniversary, and from the very moment we arrived we were treated like royalty. Given a cozy table in a little nook of the restaurant. Fresh cheese and bread, salami, bruschetta. A cocktail. We were advised that the restaurant could do half-orders of any pasta as an appetizer, so we actually decided to get appetizers, then pasta, and THEN entrees. Everything we ate (from gnocchi to zucchini flowers to fish) was incredible. We even had dessert, paired with grappa. Staff couldn't have been friendlier. Wish we could afford to go back more often!

We celebrated my birthday with the family, including my 3 year old grandson. Many of us at the table had the "Sunday Supper Special", and it was quite a good deal. The staff was very solicitous and friendly. A good time was had by all.

A very nice, upscale Italian restaurant with superior service. Great for a special night out or occasion.

Week- night special
Went on week-night evening of our special anniversary, so there was no waiting, no crowds and superb service. Dishes were delicious and elegant, without the frou- frou.

The food and ambience were wonderful. It was a rainy night outside and we felt so cozy inside
The food was outstanding as usual.
The service is very indifferent.

I was under the assumption
I was under the assumption that there was a special price for Monday through Friday up to 6;30p.m At first the captain was condescending when I mentioned that. When I asked for the MATRE D he was a bit nicer.
6/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
great food but service sub par
I have eaten dinner here many times. The food is amazing but service is so inconsistent. So many watiers but all judt standing around. Clea n the crumbs off the table. Fill the water glass.

Went to il Mulino with a large
Went to il Mulino with a large group of my family to share Father’s day dinner; an extremely demanding and challenging crowd to say the least. Each possessing their own specific culinary likes and dislikes, as well as many with unique dietary requirements. Countless requests were made and much food was ordered; all were served as requested and enjoyed. We can't say enough about the staff & the service. They were knowledgeable, attentive without being over bearing, friendly and professional. All of them working together to make our dining experience exceptional.

Best food in LI
No doubt about they serve you best food in town. Best Brancino ever!!!
6/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great gift from my kids
Being here makes you feel special. Very attentive staff, and delicious food. What more can you ask for?
6/30/2013 12:00:00 AM

Dinner was very good but also
Dinner was very good but also very expensive. Definitely a special occasion place! We went on a Sunday night when they have a prix fixed menu...but they don't like to tell you about it; you have to ask. None of us ordered off that menu as it actually seemed like too much food...but definitely worth a look.
7/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Italian done right
Food was awesome. Service was outstanding. Definitely, without a doubt, one of the best Italian Restaurants you will ever eat at.
7/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
First time at Il Mulino LI. I have frequented the Il Mulino's in NYC usually as part of a large group. The food was tops but the service was a bit aloof. Not sure if i will be rushing back.
7/25/2013 5:00:00 PM
surprisingly good food in spite of.
We were attacked by the waiters 10 seconds after we set down relentlessly. The service is pushy, and somehow pretentious. They tried to push expensive wines and all kind of expensive specials. But the food was excellent.

a restaurant that won't dissappoint
always good and dependable with a basic northern Italian menu

Great Service, best Italian food in long island but pricey

As usual, food and service were impeccable. Always a wonderful experience.

Great Place for special event
Il Mulino is a great spot for a special event. While a bit pricey, food and service are excellent.
8/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
This is a great restaurant
This is a great restaurant with a lot of food. They serve you extra Italian appetizers from the minute you walk in the door. The fig appetizer was delicious and the pasta was excellent.
8/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Although the dress code is business casual, the restaurant has a relaxed feel. The lighting and energy has the right balance. Service was impeccable! I simply can not say enough about the food..the Seafood Pasta mixed with a light wine and garlic sauce was outstanding. My son- Inlaw had the seabass that was so moist and fresh. Please save room for dessert; the Napoleon and cheesecake didn't disappoint!! ILMullino's is a little pricey, but worth every penny. I thought about the meal I had for a week! Lol. One last thing..
ILMullino makes the best Margaritas. I would highly recommend this restaraunt to anyone celebrating a special occasion or just in the mood for some good Italian food. Enjoy!

Great for special occasions
Excellent food and service. Highly recommend for special occasions. I had the shrimp with risotto and my husband had veal and we shared a bottle of wine. We also shared a lobster ravioli special as an app. Everything was fantastic. Will definitely return.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had a wonderful meal here. The service is outstanding. They feed you as soon as you sit which is nice. The choices are many and done well. Prices can be high for their specials but may be worth it to you if it's what you want. If you have a chance eat here.It was a week night so noise was not an issue. Noise can be a problem here on weekend nights.
9/3/2013 5:00:00 PM
This is a nice restaurant. The food and service are very, very good. They seemed to have toned down the loud party going behavior of some of the crowd and I'm glad. It's too nice a place to miss.
10/3/2013 5:00:00 PM
Lots of small plates- on the house- try the Prix fixed Sunday Supper- 4 courses for $39!
Caesar salad was a disappointment. Baked clams and tortellini good. Veal dishes and dessert good as well. Very nice for a special occasion.
10/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Consistently The Beat restaurant on Long Island and that's a bold statement. I eat out often, all over the world and based on food quality Il Mulino is always top notch. The Branzino is incredible, it will be the best fish you will ever have. Beef carpacchio is amazing as a standard southern Italian app. Bolognese is rich and savory and the Italian cheesecake is the best I've ever had. Service is great. Expensive, but worth a treat.
10/13/2013 5:00:00 PM
We were overwhelmed with tastings of all sorts of goodies immediately after being seated. Lovely atmosphere, so many servers! We selected from the Sunset Menu which had a great variety of choices. Somehow one of the orders was mixed up and the wrong entree presented. Dessert was a plate with tastings of several dessert choices. We were highly encouraged to try Il Mulino so will most likely give it another chance. It appeared that the regulars received lots of attention.
10/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
The only thing wrong with this restaurant is that from the moment you leave, you can't wait to come back again! Everything we ate was delicious. The service attentive. The ambience romantic.

Too much talking from the bartender
As my wife and I were seated in our favorite table in the corner of the restaurant, we noticed that most of the wait staff and bartender were talking so loud for our entire meal. Cold death stares from myself and my wife didn't quite them down one bit! We like the food, we enjoy the service and we normally like that table. There are plenty of fine restaurants on Long Island for my wife and I to spend $500 (including the tip) We're going to start searching for them next weekend, it should be fun!
