We ate at Mistura about 1-1/2 years ago and everything was excellent. That is why I chose
Mistura to impress a business colleague of mine. What a disappointment!
Service was ok, but the food was not up to the standard of a year and a half ago.
It was no better than an ordinary restaurant. The Scotch I had before dinner was pitifully
small, not even one-finger. Shame for the price of it.
My wife and I will not be returning.

Had another enjoyable evening at Mistura.

Found everyone to be friendly, efficient and knowledgeable. Food was excellent...you must try the crispy artichokes and the wild boar agnolotti...both were incredible! The beet risotto is also very, very good. QPR was very high, especially for the general area.

Will definitely be returning!

Hadn’t been here for ages and was so glad to refresh my memory. Food was delicious and Nick was a charming and professional waiter. Good wine choices and surprisingly good value for wines. Nice, energetic vibe of people having fun.

Tamarra was a great server. Food ok but not spiced enough. Soup was not hot enough. Sticky lamb is not classy or suitable for an upscale dining experience....in my humble opinion.

we had a party of six and were celebrating a number of things including two wedding anniversaries. The service and food were outstanding. The wine recommendation was excellent. Offered us complimentary lemoncello at the end of the meal.

Fabulous server.

We must go here even more often.

The only thing we can slight this area for is the parking! It's really such a pain to drive there and then have to walk 3-4 blocks to reach the restaurant. Valet parking is an annoying expense so we have taken to taxis and from mid town that adds to the night out as well. Local area restaurants see more of our custom for that simple reason. We'd like to be closer to Mistura.

-good wine selection
-service was very good
-manager came to speak with us after we told our lovely waitress that one of the meals was not appreciated .
-the manager gave us a dessert platter ...a wonderful gesture. Thank you.
-the chicken was nothing special.
-the risotto with fish was very good
-I preferred the menu from last year.
- beautiful restaurant and attentive staff
- too expensive for what we ate
-3 times someone tried to take away the bread. we hung on the first 2 times but gave it up the 3rd time. Why was everyone eager to remove the unfinished bread before we got through 1/2 way through our meal ?

Classic Italian done really well. You can't leave without having the bolognese or the wild boar Agnolotti pasta to start. If you're there soon I'd suggest getting the semifreddo for dessert but sharing it as it's deceivingly filling! Mistura was consistent as always!

Everything we had was delicious , creative, and appealingly plated.
My husband had the lobster bisque risotto which was very flavourful and the rice was done to perfection.
I had the braised lamb ribs which were rich and tasty, and an extra specially big treat for me because I don't eat pork ribs, and I do love lamb. I was told that they take 2 days to prepare; they taste as if much care and attention go into this favourite.
The panier of varied breads was excellent; the fresh, soft focaccia was lovely.
As we made our wine choices, as well as main course, we were aided expertly by our server, who helped my GF husband navigate what would be acceptable for him.
Both manager and 'Chef' came by our table to be sure we were happily satisfied with everything.
We heartily recommend Mistura . Our experience was a very positive one.

The people were very nice when we 1st walked in but the evening went sideways when they didn't have wine on the menu available. We were later told by someone that they did have the wine we requested just we asked the wrong person???. Not really sure what that meant. Our waitress basically put her fingers in my food when I asked what certain things were in our salad. The food was ok, nothing special. I was there to celebrate my wife's birthday and couldn't wait to leave. We didn't want to take a chance on dessert and be disappointed again. They even knew that we were there celebrating my wife birthday and didn't even offer anything. I will never go back or recommend this dated restaurant to anyone I know. The overall experience was terrible.

We arrived at Mistura a little early but enjoyed our time at the bar while we waited the hostess kept us up to date on our table and we did not feel we waited too long either. The waiter was pleasant and the food was excellent, our buratta to start was tasty and both of our mains were cooked to perfection. We both had a couple of glasses of the house cabernet and without knowing the label I can say I wouldn't have been able to pick one better. The restaurant was busy and all the tables were being enjoyed, we even seen Buck Martinez a couple tables over

Really loved how comfortable and inviting the restaurant was. The moment you enter, the layout of the restaurant puts you at ease and entices you. The small details are also appreciated, from the constant check-ins of multiple waiter/waitresses, to the choices of wines to accompany the meals. Great experience.

You must try the beet risotto!
