Great food, great service in this iconic Greenwich Village restaurant. We loved it from the moment we walked in, sat at the bar for a glass of prosecco - service was outstanding. Food was fabulous - from complimentary zucchini and parm cheese to decadent chocolate cake.

Special thanks for great service by Biagio & Luis. Our meals were terrific and perfectly prepared. The wine recommendation was especially appreciated because besides being a great choice, the cost was ove $100 less expensive than the one I initially wanted. Honest! Thanks for a wonderful experience. We can't wait to return to NYC to experience Il Mulino - Downtown.

Overall pretty disappointing. We were rushed from the moment we sat down. Small space and too many waitstaff right on top of us. There were more wait staff than tables. Don’t understand why that is. It made the too small space more claustrophobic. Overheard one of the waitstaff ask another what our problem was. We had the nerve to want to finish our wine before being pressured to order dessert. And there were empty tables! Why were we being rushed??? For the price not worth it.

Great experience. Service was impeccable, food was delicious and we had a wonderful time. Extensive wine list and although there is no cocktail list, we were told they had a full bar and every drink we ordered was made to perfection. Very comfortable seating for our table of 6.
The décor is a bit dated, however the ambience is quite romantic with the candle lit room.
Very authentic Italian restaurant.
Only complaint is we asked for candles in dessert to congratulate our graduate we were celebrating and this did not happen (thought table next to us had happy birthday sung and candles).

This place is old school and it is amazing. They feed you from the moment you walk in the door and send you off with some house grappa. Food was amazing and all the waiters and staff couldn’t have been more friendly.

It is the best Italian I have ever tried so far! No complain for all the food we ordered! Scallop is perfectly cooked, angel hair taste fabulous and al dente, veal Chop is juicy and thick, tiramisu with whipped cream is unbeatable! Service is very attentive! Atmosphere is fun! Must try!

Service was exceptional and very authentic Italian. There must have been 10-12 people serving our group. Bread and appetizers were excellent way to open the meal. The chunk of parmesan cheese that was served to all was very unusual and an excellent complement to the breads and meats which were also served. Food was excellent and so was the wine. It was a bit dark - only 1 candle per table did make it a bit difficult at times to find what was needed or if anything was dropped off the table.

Wonderful meal! The food was fantastic. The evening begins with plates of bruschetta, cured meat, Parmesan and breads. We enjoyed our entrees so much we didn’t have room for dessert. Service is bustling and constant. You will never have a moment in need. Highly recommend!

The food is still very good at this New York tradition. However, the decor is outdated and the service is, while friendly, nothing to write home about. You can get equally good Italian fare in many restaurants in New York, without having to reach that deep into your pocket.
