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.

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!!!

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.

First time there. Was in the mood for Italian food and this had a high rating on OpenTable so tried it and loved it. Food was fantastic as well as the service. No liquor is served but beer and wine is. Had 2 appetizers, 4 entrees and 4 desert , 3 soft drinks and 2 beers for 4 guests, $125 wo tip. Service was good

I used to eat here more often when I lived in Nashville. Since moving to Murfreesboro it’s the first time I’ve been to a Mirko in probably 3 years. Just as good as always. That ravioli has me on the floor every time. My I love it but my thighs hate it. I like how easy it was to reserve a spot for us using OpenTable. They already had drinks on the table when we walked in.

Excellent pasta! I'd recommend this place. However, it has happened twice now (2 for 2) that the restaurant cancels the opentable reservation after I get there. I then had to follow up with opentable to ensure I get the points. This is the only restaurant that I've had this issue with.

A regular spot for me and my family, and we often choose Mirko to take friends and family. We had an early evening dinner, because we had tickets for a concert, and it worked out perfectly. Food was good (as usual) and delivered quickly. The service was good, and we talked and enjoyed ourselves without worry. We left in plenty of time for our concert.

My wife and I had dinner here this past weekend. Overall, I give the restaurant 3.5 stars out of five. This is a solid Italian restaurant with a good atmosphere. The food is good, but not great. I am a bit of a snob on this because I am Italian and I am used to really good Italian food. The service was average, and I would have liked a few more wine choices.

This place is a good value and is an excellent choice for family dining. I do not consider this a date night restaurant. It is worth it to visit and have dinner. I really would have liked to give this place 4 stars but I kept saying that this place is so close on many fronts, but just could not get there.

Food was delicious and server was fun, bubbly, friendly and courteous. Only complaint was they were out of beer on a Friday night. Terrible management in that regard, but otherwise wonderful.

As I expect from Mirko I got good service and great food at an outstanding price. This isn’t fine dining, but it is fine Italian in an environment not too far from your normal American fare. It is slightly more upscale, plenty of room between tables keep the noise fairly low, and we tend to go early and it’s never too busy. We consider this restaurant our little secret, as being buried in Donelson few people seem to know about it. We rave about it to our friends and we’ll continue to come back for special occasions or not.

This place was incredible! We had reservations & showed up early, they had a table already set & reserved for us! The food was incredible, I live in Murfreesboro & plan on making the drive in frequently from now on. I've lived in Middle Tennessee for 29 years & this restaurant has now taken the #1 spot for me!

There was my xwife, her mom & myself there for dinner because I was craving home made pasta noodles! My xmotherinlaw Had vermicelli was bolanese meat sauce & my xwife Had taglatinni & I Had tagalatelli . Everything was great. The only thing I think they should change is their grated cheese...I believe it’s parm which they need to change to a gd Romano cheese.
Very good dinner though!!! We’ll be back...

GREAT pasta and Italian dishes and I’m first generation Italian. Very reasonable prices based on the portion sizes. Entrees would be $6.00 more in downtown Nashville. My wife had a Chicken Parm and it was a big delicious portion over pasta.I had a fettuccine d’mare (seafood) also spectacular. We will absolutely be back. No liquor just wine and beer. I’m from Philly area and I found that odd especially since at the front door is a bar.

This was my first time dining here and the meal was perhaps one of the best I’ve had Nashville. The pasta definitely tastes homemade and the sauce was excellent. I didn’t get too adventurous and ordered fettuccine Alfredo because that’s what I was craving, and it was the best I have ever had. Parking is plentiful, which is a huge consideration these days in Nashville.

Well worth the 12 minute drive from downtown. Don't be put off by the strip mall location or rather plain decor. A big variety of pasta styles and sauces all made in house will have you returning again and again. Large portions and very reasonable prices make Mirko Pasta good choice for anyone looking for well made Italian. Check out their menu

Phenomenal lobster ravioli with "pink"sauce. The server recommended an excellent substitute for the zinfandel I requested, which paired wonderfully with the meal (but I enjoy hearty reds with everything). My jaw hit the table when I saw how reasonably priced the meal was. We'll definitely be back for another date night.

Very authentic food. The pasta was very obviously made fresh. Higher quality than I've had almost anywhere else. The rest if the experience wasn't quite the same. Still good, but the food is by far the standout here!

This was a surprisingly enjoyable dining experience. The restaurant is in a strip mall, but the food was quite good and so was the service. It is not a fancy place at all. It was pleasant, clean, quiet, and a good value. We both ordered the pastas with different sauces and options. We were both quite happy with those items.
