I have dined here before and it’s always excellent. I brought two staff members this time for a business meeting and everything was exceptional.

Ordered chicken piccata. A chicken leg with skin on and lemon sauce appeared. Ridiculous

Il Mulino is fantastic. It has classic Italian fare, expertly prepared, with superb service. It is one of my favorite Italian restaurants in the world.

IlMulino Uptown is a fantastic restaurant. It starts with a smile at the front counter, super attentive wait staff seating us and immediately serving gratis delicious cheese (carved table side from a large cheese wheel), zucchini, bruschetta, and sausage, and drink orders to quench our thirst. Then the superb appetizers (don’t miss the mozzarella, prosciutto, tomato, and red pepper appetizer) and salads. The main courses were all excellent ranging from my chicken capricciosa (not even on the menu) to the lobster spaghetti to the veal to the salmon. On top of all this best Italian cheesecake we have ever had. And service friendly, attentive, and unobtrusive. Relatively quiet also even with a full dining room. A great experience worth every penny.

It was almost perfect. The only problem is that they finish que dished inside the main area of the restaurant producing a lot of smoke and smell

Overpriced and overrated place. Average food. What we didn’t like is that we arrived for a late lunch (2 pm) and by the end of our lunch there was almost nobody to wait for us since they were all busy having their own lunch in the restaurant. I don’t intend them not to eat but if you have guests they should be priority and don’t leave them almost without service. Having lunch in the same premise as clients ?? Not sure about it while the clients are eating. Doesn’t look good for me.
Won’t come back

The food was great. Service was quick. The only issue was space. Given the small space, the tables are very close to the point that tables have to be moved in order to be seated

Well, il Mulino was a disappointment!
Service wasn’t great for such a large staff - we were accosted by severs as we were seated which was overwhelming, but then it took a while to place our food order. The food was overpriced: calamari was average, chicken and steak were good.
They were out of both wines I wanted. The first replacement was too sweet, the second was ok but I know the wine and it’s cheap at the store but the markup was significant ($10 liquor store wine for $70!).
The tables are too close together and it feels very crowded. The noise level was high making it difficult to have a conversation.
It was way too dark - I had to use my phone flashlight to eat!
Overall, do not recommend!

I went to the uptown location. Within seconds of sitting down we were greeted with light appetizers including salami, bruschetta and a zucchini dish. We were then promptly greeted by a server who got our drink orders. My glass of water was never empty. The staff was superb. They were so attentive and made the dining experience very enjoyable. This isn’t a quiet setting but I don’t mind the noise. I think it makes the atmosphere more upbeat. My mom and I split the veal parm and arrabbiata pasta. They were nice enough to split them on two plates for us! Then we finished the meal with tiramisu which was absolutely amazing! Highly recommend if you want a 5 star dining experience

I would definitely recommend this restaurant to all my friends, as a matter of fact, one of my colleague just made a reservation for up coming Sunday lunch. Very attentive, professional, and most of all, great food. I can't wait to go back.

I went for restaurant week for lunch. $26 for appetizer and entree or dessert and entree. We made it very clear we were doing the restaurant week “deal” to the waiter. We ordered apps and entree. We didn’t read the fine print, and we were offered dessert by the waiter. I assumed this was included bc they had already whisked the menus away from us. If he knew that we were doing restaurant week, I’m unsure why he’d offer $20 each desserts. Yes that’s right, $20 PER PERSON. So, we got no sort of deal. Had dessert in the middle of the day for absolutely no reason, and spent $40 on it. Service was not good for the reason that we got absolutely tricked by this waiter. Spent over $100 instead of $52. Food was OK. Ambiance sucked. White walls... looked like a sketchy Italian restaurant on Arthur Avenue in the 80s where the mafia did deals. Very, very upset with this experience.

The food was good. How ever I am not sure a Baileys and a martini are worth $50. No to mention that the Maitre D made me leave my drink at the bar under the pretense that it would be brought to my table. And guess what that never happen. Why alienate people who can afford to pay $600 for dinner for 3 people regularly? I am not sure but it certainly not smart.

First time in Il Mulino Uptown. Been going to Village location for 30 years. Food was great and it was restaurant week so a real score.
