Food is good old school Italian. Very nice staff but they are very busy so service is always pleasant but often rushed and slow at the same time. Some additional bus staff might help. OverLl a good experience and will return.

The service was truly terrible. The waitress either moved slower than a snail, or was completely swamped despite the section surrounding us not being fully sat. Couldn’t understand a word she said as she whispered and mumbled under her mask. No recommendations, no specials.. shows up and says hi are you guys ready to order. The drinks took a solid 15-20 minutes to receive my boyfriend was a minute away from walking out.

I ordered the penne ala vodka which was very good. I liked the sauce a lot. My boyfriend wanted a steak but they do not have steak on the menu. He settled for the beef tenderloin filetto but wasn’t happy with it. It was a very heavy dish that was filled with more cheese and sauce than steak.

We ordered the fried mozzarella appetizer. The sauce was delicious but the fried mozzarella could have used some kind of seasoning. Very basic and tasted like you could get it anywhere.

In all, wasn’t thrilled and wouldn’t go running back. I really liked my dish but between the service snd my boyfriend’s dish it will take some persuading to get him to go back.

Service to be seated was great as we arrived a few minutes early. Server seemed to preoccupied - drinks were delayed, garlic bread never arrived and after asking a second time, it arrived with entrees and half the order. Refill drinks were removed from the table and the same glass brought back to the table. And pasta dish was cold while pizza was hot out of over.

This place is hit or miss on service. The food is consistently good. Tonight we had a poor server. From the start everything was subpar. He was running around like a chicken with his head cut off, which really reminisces the dining experience. I’m surprised management hasn’t noticed because he could sure use coaching. Never check with us. Slapped the check down without saying a word. Service one would expect from a diner. We will return because the food is good, but they really need to get it together with some of their servers. If we get him again we will refuse.

Been there 3 times this week as the food is all homemade and out of this world. Had different entrees each time and the best food I’ve had in years. Service with 3 different servers were all very good and efficient. Eddie the manager was great to chat with about the history of this restaurant. A must stop at each time I’m in town for the Ft Lauderdale boat show. Wish I lived here as I would come weekly.

Very nice chicken Milanese and grilled salmon. Both with generous roasted potatoes and fresh broccoli. Crisp Caesar salad to start and ending with the luscious bread pudding! Only issue was loud street noise on the north window on Sunrise Blvd and a very noisy ladies night party of 8. Just wanted a calm quiet dinner. Added a Tito’s Vodka Martini to bring on some chill for the noise situation.

Rely on Il Mulino for classic Italian dishes at reasonable prices. The garlic rolls are delicious, the Anelli Fiorentina is both delicious and imaginative accompanied by creamy tortelloni. The salmon salad was fresh and delightful on a bed of warm spinach, diced portobello, and tomato bruschetta. From homemade pastas to great Italian wines, it’s a real neighborhood gem!

Fresh pasta, ingredients Generous, well prepped and plated food, great hospitality, great service, more-than-fair price & value. Did I leave anything out?

Service and hospitality were A+ and as good as it gets!

Nice setting and they seated us right on time as our reservation.

Started with garlic rolls which were too good!! Great way to start our meal with a side of marinara for dipping. We also split a Caesar salad. Very good Al’s though a bit on small side.

For entrees, we had sausage flatbread and Linguine with red clam sauce. Both portions were ample and flavors were right on the money and temp was perfect!

No extra seasoning was needed.

One glitch was that capellini was subbed for linguine. It was also somewhat over cooked and not aldente.

Seemed like most diners were regulars and we live nearby and will most definitely be back very soon.

Very solid neighborhood Italian place.

Mangia!
