Love love it!
Best Italian food ever!!!!
Oh My Gosh! From the start where you are given thinly sliced grilled zucchini pieces, to the end with the after dinner drink, II Mulino impresses. The garlic bread, cheese, 5 other options of bread all before your apps come blew us away. The service was impeccable. Gotta check this place out. We will be coming back every time we go to NYC
Fabulous food, hospitality and ambiance! A wonderful evening!
Amazing as always! Wonderful service and delicious food!
Thank you to the whole team at Il Mulino for the wo derful experience. Food was absolutely fantastic. Authen5ic Italian vibe and cuisine
Waiter should have informed us price os rack of lamb and not be chocked,!,,
Best restaurant in New York City. Bar none. Every single thing they prepare is the most outstanding version of that dish possible. LOOK OUT FOR THE SPECIALS. Get the black truffle ravioli, the rack of lamb is unbelievable, and the dessert of the poached pear soaked in white wine and topped with zabaglione will knock you out. Wine list could be improved a bit, but not enough of a flaw to take away from the delicious food. Wonderful, wonderful place.
All went well till I figured they charge me a different dish I ordered and cost $90 instead of the $45 I thought ... they said I ordered something different ... but i thought client is always right ! Did not happen this time
Wonderful restaurant t, wonderful time. Food is outstanding.
As per the last 10000 million times, fantastic. Never a single complaint !
Was very disappointed with the overall experience. The ambiance felt unrefined and claustrophobic with waiters buzzing around and serving very casually and rushed. The food was mediocre at best and very expensive. We had to send back the porcini ravioli special (which came out suspiciously quickly) as it was drowned in a sauce that was too creamy and sticky and tasted like out of a can. The meatballs were average. The veal chops and the rack of lamb specials were ludicrously expensive ($72 and $90, respectively!!) and were not very good. The veal chop was the biggest disappointment of all. While it was appropriately cooked (medium rare) you could not taste the veal at all since it was covered in garlic, garlic crusted, garlic oil, garlic everything! All you could taste is garlic which stayed with me until the very next day. The lamb was over cooked and covered in a sauce which was too sour and overpowering. The best part of the meal was the wine - a brunello for $170. For this price tag do yourself a favor and go to Le Bernardin....not this atrocious restaurant.
Amazing meal food recommendations wine, ask for Rudy and share a grappa with Andrea. The most amazing buffalo mozzarella app and delicious pasta with white truffle and veal piccata to die for! Service impeccable. Overall A+ and we have eaten a lot of Italian food.
Great whenever with whoever for whatever occasion
Il Mulino never disappoints. After dining there for over 20 years you appreciate the culinary experience. Every bite is perfect and you don’t want the meal to end. The Ricotta Cheesecake is to die for!
The dinner exceeding expectation...top notch service and the food was memorable. I highly recommend the veal milanese and the spaghetti carbonara. You will not be disappointed.
Amazing as always. Best place in the city!
Great, we should have selected meals effectively if pricing was announced upfront in reciting specials
We had a fabulous time and Rudy was terrific! The food was great and I would have given it a five except the soup was too salty. This is definitely on my list when returning to NYC.
Impeccable service from start to finish. Was initially surprised to see a lot of traditional Italian dishes on the menu, but pleased to discover that they were exquisitely prepared. Would highly recommend this establishment for a wide range of occasions.
Been going for 30 years. Never gets tired, never disappoints. Food is simply amazing and always surprised and pleased by specials. Service is impeccable yet friendly and so accommodating. Is it expensive yes, but they make you feel special and worth it.
Best classic Italian dinner New York has to offer!
OMG! Biagio is amazing! He makes every guest feel special. He is Il Mulino. I’ve been to Il Mulino Prime but they don’t have a Biagio. It was my Father’s birthday and Biagio went above and beyond for him. In the dark! The lights went out in the dining area temporarily but Biagio did not break a sweat. I look forward to visiting Il Mulino again just for the food and Biagio’s timeless service alone. Worth it! The Branzino was amazing by the way!
Wow! What an incredible meal. Our waiter was so nice and friendly and helped us with the menu. The chef sends out delicious zucchini, salami, chunks of parmesan, among other things. Amazing! We definitely will go back the next time we are in NYC!
Outstanding food and service.a bit pricey but well worth it.would go back .
The food is really good in the menu is varied. They start you out with a lot of little plates of food that are delicious. I had the Oso Buco which was very tender and tasty. We are Asian but not from Asia. We don’t speak another language. When we entered and departed, they spoke Japanese to us. I guess they were trying to make us feel comfortable but it was a little weird. Service was really good.
Great place, special ambience.
Best Italian in town?
The restaurant is authentic southern Italian. The service is impeccable. Food is delicious.
I have been going to this location of Il Mulino for years and it never disappoints. The service and food are worth the drive from Queens, and worth the money. Just wonderful.
Wasn’t sure what to expect but it was amazing. Every dish was as good as the next
Love this place
Great Italian restaurant!!
All facets are perfect !!
This is a perfect destination for celebrating a special occasion. Service is professional, food delicious and excellent. A bit pricey, but worth it if you are celebrating. Best part of the dinner, being greeted by Claudio at the door.
From the service to the food everything was perfect. We have been to Italy and this Italian restaurant made me feel like I was back in Italy. With the amazing service and the tasty food. Would recommend this place to anyone visiting New York or if you are a local. This is the most authentic Italian food I have had since we have been back in the states.
I frequented Il Mulino often in the '90's and early 2000's, but hadn't been back to the original in years. I was concerned that the "chain" effect with all the new ones would have ruined the original, but this is not the case. We had a great time as a family, the food was that same awesome old-school Italian, albeit pricey (which has always been the case...). However, the wine list, while somewhat limited for an upscale NYC restaurant, had some wines in our price point that I was very happy with. Overall, with tip and tax, wine, etc. it's hard to get out of there for much less than $200 a head, but every dish we ordered was great (for what it is) from the three pasta "tris" we started with, the branzino in salt, langoustines, and the cut orange to top it off. Service was excellent and friendly (in a NY kind of way...), always attentive and helpful- an example, my wife was hoping that the sabayon would have been made tableside, like it used to , so when it arrived in a dish she said something to the waiter. He said, "I'll be right back..." and came back and made a second portion table-side; nice touch! This is not "inventive" Italian, this is very much the garlic, red sauce, creamy, Italian food that we were after. And I still love the barrage of food at the start- the sauteed zucchini is my favorite. We all left completely stuffed. My kids want to go back like next week, but it might be a while- even I'm already looking forward to returning.
Excellent all the way around. Beautiful meal !
Food was very good but a but over priced. $39 for Calamari app which was regular size and not family size is over priced.
Always a fantastic authentic full service experience !!!
As always, excellent service with attention to detail and wonderful food! Elegant waitstaff and environment too,
Everything was perfect, great food, ambiance and wine. It was a family dinner. The kids loved the food. One point to note, they do not have high-chairs, so we had to manage with our 3 year old sitting on a regular chair.
