Do you want loud noise, crowded spaces, mediocre food, adequate service, pretentious wine list. You have come to the right place.
It is nothing like the IL MOLINO at Aqualina in Sunny Isles in Florida. Where service is excellent and true Italian food preparations can be found. This is NY trendy and ineffective. Don't waste your time and money. There are so many more great Italian restaurants within a 10 block area.

We ordered a lovely dinner but felt rushed by our server throughout our entire meal. I will not return to a restaurant who charges high prices for food selection and then the clients are felt rushed between each course particularly after desert. Outrageous!

Soon after we arrived they told us we could only have our table until 8:15pm. The steak my husband ordered was over cooked. When we asked for another steak they brought another steak that was raw. We have been to this restaurant many times and have never been disappointed.

The carpaccio was watery.

I am all for a busy, bustling festive atmosphere but this was cramped, rushed, unfriendly , too dark to read the menu. One meal ok but fruitti di mare scallops and shrimp over cooked, calamari inedible and and risotto was crunchy. I mentioned this but they took the plate, barely touched and said nothing. $300 meal for two with wine. Uh no! Not again

My wife and I go to Il Mulino’s frequently. I also bring business people there. I have never felt this rushed in my life. We were forced out after 58 minutes.. that is not ok for a $500.— meal... I get you need to turn tables but, that was my last time dining there..

The food is very good. The staff is not particularly friendly and rush around setting plates down and taking them away quickly. You tend to feel rushed. Also, it is so noisy that it was difficult to hold a conversation. A disappointing evening.

I love Il Mulino, especially the downtown NYC and Vegas locations but the one uptown was very cramped and crowded, and extremely loud. So much so that it was hard to have a conversation sitting across from my date. Food was good as always, but the experience suffered due to the noise level. I was also hoping the would bring out a candle for my date and they failed to do so.

Those people who said they felt rushed when they came here? They are all correct! In addition, the tables to placed tightly together. I thought the pasta was fantastic but our appetizers (arugula salad and beet salad) were so standard and boring. We were going to get a bottle of wine from the menu, but it looked like one of those plastic covered menus you find at a restaurant in little Italy, and the server had no idea what to recommend so her recommended anything on the Super Tuscan page, when I wanted something from the Piedmont page. We had higher expectations. We will not be coming back. If all Il Mulino's are like this one, we will not go any ever again.

Crazy, but they had two separate 911 events while I was at the restaurant. One brain disorder and one choking. Paramedics, ambulances, CPR! The staff was incredibly professional throughout - immediately called 911, cleared room for emergency personnel and made the customers feel at ease. I had never exhibited one such event but saw two, back to back, in one evening at Il Mulino. It was not the restaurant’s fault and they did an excellent job responding to both emergencies.
