Il Mulino Downtown was truly a one of a kind experience. The service was perfect with breads, cheese, etc... presented to us upon being seated. The food was delicious! We had appetizers, entrees, and desserts and would recommend eating very light prior to a dinner at Il Mulino so you can enjoy ALL the courses! Also get a bottle of wine suggested by the fantastic wait staff. 5 STARS!

You will not find a better Italian restaurant in the United States or even in Rome. We have been dining at Il Mulino downtown for perhaps 3 decades and would go back for another 3 if we could.
If you want a dining experience like no other in the world this is where you have to be.

Service was unacceptable!!! We had to ask for someone to take our drink order, our appetizer order, and our food order! along with asking someone to bring us or check and to take the check. I would have had better service and better food at the Olive Garden!! My daughter stated. "No women are working here!” The pasta was not scratch-made. $42 for overcooked seafood pasta. The menu online does not match the table menu.. I could go on but im done. The bread was amazing.

Great traditional Italian restaurant. Cozy atmosphere, delicious food, classy service. Healthy portions and nice complimentary opening dishes.

As a New Yorker, I am used to seeing trendy restaurants come and go. Il Mulino has been here a long time because they focus on serving delicious food.

Amazing meal- just as great as ever! First time back in almost a year and it was better than I remember. Service was everything you’d want. My husband and I had octopus and baked clam apps, Red Snapper Livornese and Langostines with Risotto- all perfect. Can’t wait until bar is open so we can stop in for a quick drink and apps which we really miss doing! We’ll be back for dinner again soon!

I had not been back to Il Mulino since before the pandemic began, and I am very happy to report they have not lost a thing during these awful times. The food was as spectacular as ever, the service impeccable, and the manager Claudio made it feel like coming home again.

Had a lovely birthday dinner for my fiancee here. They provided us with a quiet table in the corner, and the service was exemplary. We shared a few apps, langoustine, and one of their signature pasta dishes. Classic after dinner drink and cake sealed the deal. Always top notch!

The food was terrible and they charged $150 for a $40bottle of Rothschild. The wallpaper gave a 1950’s flow. I was given the worst steak I had in my life and it was an unforgettable evening and I will NEVER be attending this establishment again.
