Mirko Pasta - Donelson
The food here is amazing!! We stopped after reading great reviews, their pasta is made fresh daily and it reflects in the authentic taste. The only reason I gave this 4 stars overall is because they don’t have some of the items listed on their menu, particularly the two options that I really wanted to try most. They just need to update their menu online and in the restaurant and I would easily give 5 stars!
Food was great! Service was really good - the waitress was friendly and had good recommendations. She also brought us extra complimentary breadsticks. My only complaint is that it was a cold day and the temperature inside was cold. Other tables were dining with coats on.
Disappointing. Would not go back. Table was dirty and server was oblivious to what she had to do to clean it. Seriously! Food was fair, not a lot of flavor.
Helpful staff who sat us within 5 minutes or less.
I have never written a negative review and am doing so with the qualifiers below.
This restaurant is fine for inexpensive family dining and my entree was good. Our waitress did her job very well and I tipped her well.
That being said, I brought a large business group here as dinner confirmations were last minute and I could not get a clear count of attendees until after lunch the day of the dinner.
Despite great reviews from business diners, the restaurant is not suitable for corporate-class dining. There is nothing wrong with the appearance of the restaurant for casual dining but 20+ business diners knew immediately that this was going to be different.
I raised spirits by mentioning that reviewers really enjoyed the food. Unfortunately, appetizers were just ok tasting and not hot.
As mentioned, my entree was quite good but the rest of the group mentioned they were disappointed.
My intent is merely to be helpful to future diners booking large corporate-class dinners; I advise you to book elsewhere.
We had a large party. We received exceptional service & the food was incredible. Had one mishap. Server was cleaning table & stacked too many dishes. Accidents happen. Overall great experience.
Food was Ok. We had a large group and it took awhile to serve everyone . We waited and waited ... when
The final meal was set in the table, most of everyone else’s food was cold.
I can’t imagine how this restaurant got such positive reviews. I ordered the chicken piccata which was tough and bathed in too much sauce. My wife had salad and minestrone soup.
We would not return to this restaurant in the future.
Do not underestimate the location of this restaurant. The pasta and sauces are homemade and authentic. You will LOVE the food.
Food was very good.
No flavor in my dish. Pasta was hard.
This place is amazing for fresh pasta and awesome sauce pairings. I honestly haven’t had anything yet that I didn’t like. Their bruschetta is delicious and surprisingly, their burger sliders are so good! My favorite is to get fusilli pasta with funghi sauce and add asparagus and grilled chicken. Love this place! They also have a kids menu that’s perfect for those picky eaters!
Delicious meal. 6 adults comfortable sat in their booth. Attentive service. Really enjoyed the alfredo sauce. Creamy but still light. Not too much butter or oil. We went on a saturday night at 730pm and noise level was minimal, especially in the booth with tall backs, which made it easy to hear each other. would definitely recommend for a nice, but still casual italian meal with small or larger group.
Amazing! Will be back.
Food was pretty good, my lasagne was a bit cold. Service was not great. Our waitress took a long time to greet us and take our order though it wasn’t very busy. When done water spilled, she gave me napkins to wipe it up rather than her taking care of it. She rushed us on getting the check, didn’t thank us for coming in or anything.
Disappointed! Can't give honest review because we were told there would be a 30 minute wait even though we had a reservation. Hostess shrugged her shoulders and said there wasnt enough servers. They should not accept reservations they can't honor! We left and will not go back!!
Enjoyed our meal very much! Their homemade pastas and sauces are to die for!
Enjoyed visiting at bar while waiting for take out
YUM!!!! The gnocchi is amazing! The pink sauce is incredible! Yum
Out-Of-Towners Visiting Nashville: It was not worth the effort. Food was "meh". When you walk in, you find this pizza place, not the upscale pasta restaurant as noted on OpenTable. Then we eventually found the pasta place next door. This is a t-shirt and jeans establishment, not a nice night on the town type of place that out-of-towners would expect. in Nashville TN
Excellent food. Friendly staff. The restaurant proved difficult to find due to two factors. First, GPS announced “you have arrived” when we were still almost 1/2 mile away. Second, the exterior signage was not illuminated.
Ok place. Food was ok
Saw 4.5 star review. I’ll give it 3.5. Caesar salad...meh. Tomato soup....meh. Chicken piccata was good. Pasta with bolognese sauce was good.
Surprisingly good food and beer in a strip mall! Staff very friendly.
My wife ordered one thing, thinking it was something else, it was totally my wife’s fault but they took it away and let her order something else free of charge!
Waitress was very good, my truffle burger was very good although a little too much juice came off but still a great burger. Atmosphere was nice, noise level wasn’t bad and we were there on a busy Sunday lunch.
Can’t recommend enough.
Very accommodating to our large group. Excellent service and helpful stagg
Our 6th year in Nashville for CMA Fest and we've been here every year at least twice a vacation. We love the food, it's never super packed which is great, especially coming with our 3 year old. He loves the mac and cheese and I'm quite obsessed with the mushroom ravioli and the white bean dip. Would recommend to anyone and will definitely eat here every time we're in Nashville!
Ari (Aria?) was a super wait person. The food was verrry good and the price very reasonable. The pasta (made there) was the BEST!!!! Though we shared, the portions were still generous. It would be realllly great to relax in a back booth with a glass of red wine, pasta with olive oil, salt and a bit of parm. Next time!!! Bravo! To your great little place!
The fried cheese appetizer crust lacked flavor and the cheese was watery. My Mom and I ordered the salmon entree and our plates looked completely different. My food was very bland. I'm not sure if it Was the waitress' first weekend, but she forgot a few things and was slow to checking on our party. There weren't many people in the restaurant so it wasn't busy and a good atmosphere.
The food and service was great on a visit. The only disappointment (which was a big one) was that they were out of highchairs. I specifically asked to have a high chair when we placed the reservation and they were out. My son had to sit in booster chair and I had to eat one-handed to make sure he didn't fall out of the chair.
Came here to celebrate graduation with friends and family. Service was outstanding and the waitress met all of our needs, along with surprising us with two big slices of tiramisu for dessert. Brussels sprouts + pasta was absolutely delicious and the portions were huge. Would highly recommend!
Loved the shrimp and lobster ravioli.
Great service, great food. Very relaxing atmosphere. I would definitely recommend you give it a try
My employee and I came for dinner and were thrilled with our selections - lasagne for me and the eggplant Parmesan for her. Authentic Italian and oh so good.
This has been our go-to for special occasions for some time. It's not glitzy, it's not expensive, it's not crowded. Somehow I've never gone here and waited to get seated, despite it being one of the best Italian restaurants in the city. Maybe the location, on the closer side of Donelson, is the reason? I'm not sure, but my wife and I will continue to go here until it's gone. We always get great service, there's plenty of options, and the appetizers and dessert have always been pleasing, if not ground-breaking. I can't speak for the alcohol menu, but she always seems to enjoy the wines and I've had a few of the beers which were also pleasing.
Loved it! Food was excellent
We were visiting in the area and wanted to carbo load before a 5k race. Great meal! In-house pastas we’re delicious. Lots of variety. In our party of 4 everyone ordered a different entree. Everyone was very pleased with their selection.
We came here after reading Yelp and Trip Advisor reviews - and we are so glad we did! Highly recommend for delicious Italian fare - our waiter was awesome & had a great personality, too! We had a fabulous experience, and will definitely be returning here when we come back to Nashville!!!
Good food good service. Thx
We had several pasta dishes, appetizers, and wine. It was just okay. Made reservation on OpenTable then later that night received email saying we were a no show for our reservation. Apparently the restaurant reported us as no show after we had just spent over $100 there. I appreciate a good experience, and not usually too critical, but this was annoying.
