    Our waiter, Alex, was amazing. He made good recommendations and was timely and warm. The food was excellent. They even had a nice wine list.

    I ordered medium salmon and it was cooked beyond well. It was hard and dry. My parents ordered salmon, received the sides when everyone else’s meal arrived but the actual salmon arrived 25 minutes later. It’s very loud. No apology from manager.

    Beautiful setting. I thought this was a rooftop restaurant but it’s not. Nonetheless the venue is very pretty. To me the menu is limited and I should have looked ahead but Ive seen all these videos and reviews so we went. We ended up ordering pizza because there was nothing else on the menu that I thought I would like. There is no fettuccine, or spaghetti, or chicken parmigiana. Service was fair and I felt snubbed at times. It’s not for me and doesn’t fir the Italian cuisine I would expect.

    The food was really an overpriced mixed bag here. We really liked the Lasagna, but the Carbonara was sadly tasteless and the pasta was mushy.

    My goal here is to be as objective and honest as possible. First let me say that my wife and I are what people like to call "foodies". We have dined internationally (Amalfi, Rome, Barcelona, ect) and love to dine domestically as well when new opportunities present themselves. We have lived in NC for 6 years and have passed Mulion's multiple times & finally decided to give it a try. We had reservations for 5pm & were basically the only guests at that time. We got seated in the middle of the room rather than a quiet corner. Not a huge deal & we could have asked to have been reseated but we wanted to go with the flow. We started with their bread, which is Fantastic! My wife had the salmon, and I had the spinach ravoli. Both were tasty but neither dish hot, semi warm at best. Note the dining room was almost empty so not sure if the kitchen guessed on popular dishes & had them ready to go but they did not present as freshly made but rather warming in the kitchen. Also, the salmon was not cooked enough. Again, we could have sent it back but chose not to make a fuss. A door near us had staff emerging many times with kitchen trays and walking through the dining room. Not a great way to induce ambience. Also, the door to the patio area was used very often and shut in a fairly loud manner to create a negative experience. With the food just okay and having been served so quickly, our impression was not favorable. For us personally, in a place like Mulino, we are looking for a dining experience and expecting to spend 1.5 to 2 hours. With the ultra fast service, we could have been done in 35 to 40 mins. We had a hard time understanding why the food needed to come out so quickly with 99% of the establishment vacant. Service was Wonderful, Stephanie (if my recall is any good) was fantastic & we would take her as a Server any day, A+. Perhaps we caught the kitchen on a bad day, but we are not ones to return when the overall experience does not meet our expectations.

    Mulino is the best Italian experience in Raleigh. The vibe, menu, service and people are all outstanding. To top it all off, all the pasta is made in house. They offer some of the best Italian wines I’ve ever tried outside of Italy. Everything on the menu is fresh and exquisite. Whether you sit inside or outside, rain or shine, the experience will be one of your best. Look out for my man, Christian. Not only is he an incredible waiter, but his knowledge of food and wine is excellent.

    Party of five for Mother’s Day. Great overall experience. Everyone finish their food and like their food. I was sad that they were out of tiramisu. The crème brûlée was OK. The cannoli tasted like raw cookie dough. I would not ever order that again. I would go back for a couple date night.
