My family took me here to celebrate Mother’s Day. The drinks, food and atmosphere were super. I didn’t catch our server’s name, but she was awesome. Will be back.
Amazing food and great atmosphere. Highly recommended.
The outdoor dining is magical. We started with the charcuterie appetizer and my only complaint was that it was so plentiful, I filled up quickly. The pickled beets added just the right balance to the cheeses and meats. We opted to share the Tagliatelle so we had room for dessert and I glad we did. The portion was ample for two, it was some of the best I have ever had. We finished the meal with cream brûlée and tiramisu, both were good but my favorite was the cream brûlée. I will definitely go back.
Delicious food, great atmosphere! Covid precautions in place. Reservation site should ask if you want indoor or outdoor seating. But overall wonderful experience!
This was my second time at the restaurant. It was an awesome experience. The waitress did lose track of time when it was time to check out but it wasn't a major issue. Also, due to the tight parking spaces, our car had been hit.
Food was great, especially the Bolognese and Burrata salad. Nice wine and cocktail offerings. Atmosphere and service always exceed expectations.
Great Italian restaurant with a lovely outside courtyard for dining al fresco. We had the tagliere, the bolognese, the manzo chef special and followed with the cannoli and the affogato. Everything was delicious and presented nicely. Wonderful atmosphere and quick servers. Our lovely server was Maria and she went above and beyond to make our first visit there memorable.
It was great. Weather was nice and waitress was very friendly and helpful.
Mother’s Day Dinner for Mom!
Pretty much this was my second time dining there. It was very busy for COV but our group felt ok. Server just forgot a glass of wine we never got and the Parmesan cheese. Overall we had a great evening and will return.
Love the vibe and service was great. The food was mehh. We had to pay $6 for the bread bowl which is typically complimentary but that’s okay. What wasn’t great was the actual quality of the bread. It was so dry and tasteless we couldn’t eat more than a few bites. The rest of the food didn’t make up for it. I’d come back for drinks and the atmosphere, but would have dinner elsewhere.
Once we sat down , the server didn’t even smile at us the whole time , she forgot my mushrooms, every time we thanked her she didn’t respond. She dropped the fork on my husbands lap and spilling meat juice in his pants , she gave a fake apology, then she brought a broken plastic wear for my food , and no bag to carry the food .
What a wonderful night. Valentina was awesome. The food is sooo fresh. We had pasta bolagnese, margarita pizza and seasonal risotto. Great martini, fresh bread. Thank you!!!
It’s always outstanding service and food! LOVE THIS PLACE!
Dined out for the first time in awhile with some friends. Made a last minute reservation and we were sat outside- the patio is beautiful. Our waitress was phenomenal, service was fast, drinks and food were good. My husband and friend had the salmon pesto special - which they raved about. My friends husband had the lasagna- which he enjoyed. I had the bolognese which was good but I would probably try something different next time. Overall we were happy with our experience and would dine there again!
Even though the place was very busy, service was outstanding, from the receptionist to the bar to my server. The food, as always at Mulino, was excellent. Mulino has the best calamari in town; entrees were delicious, dessert was wonderful. But the service is what really makes it a wonderful occasion.
If your looking for a beautiful environment to impress your guest be sure to visit this place. The food was great and the cocktails are fantastic!! Gabby was our waitress and she’s a delight!
Outstanding food and service. Will definitely put this on our restaurant rotation.
Very good wait staff, attentive and well trained.
Sitting outside is very nice. The setting was nice.
I had lasagna. My wife had pasta bolganese. Her dish was very tasty.
I always get lasagna on my first visit to a Italian restaurant. The lasagna was just not flavorful, disappointed. I asked for a side of marrinera sauce. The sauce was very good, tasty. And that made the difference! Adding the sauce to the lasagna made it good.
But...they charged me extra for the sauce that made the lasagna taste good. Oh well.
There are definitely better Italian restaurants in Raleigh.
The outdoor patio was so lovely and the weather was perfect for us! Watch your location as some seats will catch more road noise but overall such a great atmosphere! Nice menu and the food was delicious! Inventive and delicious cocktails. Nice wine choices. Highly recommend the octopus starter. Everyone in our party was happy with their entree. The creme brûlée was some of the best I’ve ever had!
The outdoor space is beautiful, the food delicious and the service was wonderful! Everyone was very attentive to our needs and yet we felt like we could completely enjoy the atmosphere. Great location in downtown Raleigh that we could walk to from our place. Would definitely take friends when they come in town for a visit to the city of Oaks!
The gnocchi is amazing but steak was undercooked, twice! It's still worth a try. Sit outside if the weather allows!
Not the experience I’m used to at Mulino. We requested a table near the water ahead of time as we are celebrating an engagement. We were on time for our 7:00 reservations and were sat at 7:20. A couple in front of us checked in at 7:20 for their 7:00 reservations and were greeted with “oh a VIP couple!” And sat immediately next to the water. We were then sat in the corner next to the dumpster/trash area. Our waitress was not very attentive and our bill was very pricey for the lack of experience we had. Unfortunately I may not choose Mulino to celebrate my special occasions in the future.
Amazing patio with even better food
We had a really lovely anniversary dinner at Mulino! The ambiance was gorgeous and the food was spectacular! Our waitress was very kind and knowledgeable about the specials!
My biggest problem from my recent visit was the food. My bread, ravioli, and creme brûlée all came out cold. It was very disappointing because I already sent back something for being cold and more cold items kept coming out. I didn’t want to be a bother so I let it go.
Food was good but not great. Pasta was fresh but a bit overcooked. My wife and I sat outside and that was nice. Overall though, for the quality and quantity of food, the price was way too high.
The staff was very attentive and kind. Outdoor dining area was beautiful. The gnocchi was delicious!
Great place, vibe and food. Super organized and welcoming. We will definitely revisit this place.
I travel very often . best ambiance I have ever experienced .. Definitely will recommended to anyone
Great experience and setting! Mulino’s food, service and vibes is hands down my favorite restaurant to go to with friends!
Lovely to dine outside by a beautiful pool. The three of us had a pizza and two fish specials - salmon and pesto pasta, plus a burrata salad. All so delicious. The specialty cocktails are yummy. Make a reservation and get there early to sit outside.
The worst service I’ve received in a long time. Food is normally excellent and my dinner was not edible. I would have ordered something else right away but our waitress didn’t return for 20 plus minutes after the food arrived. I’ve been here multiple times and this is not the standard I am used to. We were all very disappointed.
Great food and amazing environment. Can’t wait to go again
Such a fantastic location in Raleigh. Beautiful open courtyard that is perfect for outdoor dining. The food is beautifully prepared. Recommend the Octopus, Burrata Salad and Frutti de Mare but those are always my favorites. We will be coming back for more
We had a great dinner this past Saturday April 24th. We ate outside but were basically warm enough because of the heaters. I might have preferred to know that we'd be outside so my MIL could have brought a heavier coat but we did just fine in the end. The food was delicious (frutti de mare, lobster ravioli, and two orders of lasagna) as well as a cannoli and creme brûlée for dessert. My in laws are picky and we hadn't seen them in well over a year due to COVID so we were glad the meal was so outstanding. The service was excellent and we appreciate everything y'all did to make our dinner special. Thank you and see you soon!
Food was okay but very expensive for what it was. We were there to celebrate two birthdays but never got a happy birthday from the server, even after carding us. Just okay.
Ambience was great. Food was okay, but cocktails were great!
