I usually eat here in the evening but had guests in town and it was a great choice for lunch. They did not have the lunch menu available, but I was able to order my favorites from the regular menu at lunchtime.

Always a great choice. The chicken Parmesan is amazing and the rack of lamb was tender and delicious. Great ambiance and overall atmosphere. The experience was wonderful.

Very good food and service, the place was way too loud and way too dark, it was difficult to see the food clearly, besides that a good place to go and have a good meal.

The overall ambience of the restaurant is very formal. It’s dimly lit with a moderate noise level. I have very good eyes and even for me it was difficult to read the menu without the help of a flashlight. The drinks were fantastic. The food was great, just a few pointers. The calamari had some of the inners leftover so I found myself spitting out the “plastic-like” parts. The mussels had some sand in them, and no it was not pepper. The grilled octopus was amazing, I highly recommend it. The service was very attentive and the covid precautions were very well implemented. I felt safe 100% of the time I was there from entering the establishment to using the restroom to leaving the establishment. Our waiter did a superb job of making our night pleasant and relaxing. I did not mention the flaws of the food as it was minor to me, but please fix them as it may be major to others. This is a good place to bring good company to. Business meetings, not so much.

Celebrated my birthday at Il Mulino. We ordered baked clams, langostino with spinach, risotto with porcini and ravioli with porcini. All of the dishes were out of this world. At the very end, we decided to order their eggplant parmigiana and that was a big mistake because it was a complete disgrace for such a reputable place. First, it was very salty. On top of this, made with the wrong kind of cheese. Dear chef, try making it with fresh mozzarella cheese. It will come out much better.

Not observing covid safety protocols. Asked them to put us in an igloo/bubble seating for my reservation and they did not honor this. They instead wanted to seat us in the fully enclosed “outdoor dining” area. The dividers do not fully separate diners. We asked to keep the door open by us to allow air to circulate and they flatly refused not even politely. Basically leaving us without plans on Valentine’s Day. Nice

What a delightful experience! My friend and I had a wonderful lunch in our own outside hut. Our pasta dishes were excellent and the service was stellar. We enjoyed a beautiful California Cab suggested by an attentive sommelier. Of course one can’t discount the goodies that arrive before the meal: fresh shaved parmigiana, fried zucchini, tomato bruschetta. I had only dined at Il Mulino downtown so I was happy that the uptown restaurant lived up to the Il Mulino reputation! Bravo.

Food and service earned high marks but for a party of six (4 adults and 2 young children) the a bit over priced to say the least. Case in point, our bill was approximately $950 inclusive of gratutities. I am going to recommend this restaurant but be mindful not to have the staff create any shared appetizers (they cost just as much as the entrees).
