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).

Italian restaurant? No Italians in the staff I was hoping the cook is Italian but judging the food quality and the raw ingredients I do not think so. Branzino was not cooked in the right way ,polpette cold and done maybe a day before ,wine list price average too expensive... never again.

Food was incredible but service was particularly slow. Waited 30 minutes for a menu to be brought to us. Food took longer than that. Highly recommend for food but faster service please. It's ridiculous to wait for almost 45 minutes to get our first course when your bill is going to amount to $167 including tip.

Bathroom also needs cleaning. No one was inside the resto when I was looking for the bathroom. The lady (who was carrying dishes for washing) did not understand what I was looking for. If you're going to charge top price for food, I expect the bathroom to be spotless.

Too few waiters for the number of customers. Took 1hr 40 min to receive main dish, and we were there early before crowd. Too expensive for poor service.

Seated promptly and wait staff was very good. It took more than an hour for the entries to come from the kitchen. To our disappointment it arrived cold and we decided to get the check. Been to the restaurant many times with good experiences. Maybe running a restaurant during a pandemic was too taxing.

The food was delicious. I was just disappointed that we wanted a couple of bottles of wines and they didn’t have it but I understand because of COVID-19. Other than that it was really good.

The place seems a draw for wannabe bad boys and attractive young women wanting to meet them, but I would be embarrassed to bring my Italian relatives here for a meal.

They should really skip the greasy toast, non-Italian parmesan, greasy fried zucchini and tasteless bruschetta brought to the table when you first sit down.

We had OK Prosciutto mediocre grilled octopus, and a commercial desert tartufo.

Service was fine.

We have been going to Il Mulino Uptown for years. We were so happy to go during this COVID time. They had a nice set up of tables outside. It was great to see the staff that we knew working. I give them a ton of credit. Running around with a mask and never missing a beat. Il Mulino was fantastic as usual. We plan on going back again in a couple of weeks to support them during this time.

Love the food at Il Mulino
So glad they have a midtown location
Outdoor seating on the street - next to Phillipe
They just need to add flower pots like Philippe Chow did
Many large trucks pass by but still a lovely experience

IL Mulino is back with a wonderful outdoor social-distanced space that is really great. Of course food and service is just as top notch as it always is. So happy to be back. Thank you to the staff for a wonderful meal and world class service and care.
