As a couple bent on having excellent meals we’ve tried a great many establishments. Some of those are good but none of them have come close to the flavor and quality we had the other night. Definitely safe and adhering to COVID guidelines. Worth your money and your time.
Food was very good, the menu had a nice selection of items. Great drink menu. Definitely a must try restaurant.
The food was excellent, the waiter very knowledgeable, and the atmosphere spectacular! Highly recommend.
Outstanding first visit!! We will be back. This is hands down the best Italian food ever. The service was superb (thanks Sy) For the great recommendation for wine too.
Dipping oil for the bread basket did not seem to be a good oil for dipping. House-made pasta was flavorful was slightly under al dente. Drinks were outstanding (Mocktail and the Tropico Royale). Service in the bar area was superior to most other restaurants as they appeared to have more than adequate staffing to support more than just serving drinks. Overall experience was great.
Overall good..food was really good. Our table and chairs cheap outdoor furniture. Doesn’t match overall restaurant. Tile ceramic and a metal folding chair. Service was nice, friendly but was very forgetful.
Enjoyed dinner at Mulino last night. The covered outdoor area has plenty of space and fresh air. Salads were notably great. And pastas were delicious. They had a good gluten free pasta option that I needed and enjoyed. Will definitely return.
Went here for my daughters birthday. The waitress was the nicest lady helped us with the menu. The place is absolutely beautiful & the food was amazing ! Definitely going to come back here
The ambiance was amazing!! However, the food mediocre at best. What restaurant charges $5 for bread? And gives you a shot glass size of pure oil to dip. No garlic, basil, or red paper flakes. The place is beautiful though. Maybe it would be better to go and just have drinks?
This was a great place with beautiful ambience. Service was great however limited options for vegetarians with price being exaggerated as per the quality of food.
Great experience! Loved my server
As always we had a great meal with friends at Mulino Saturday night. The cocktails were served quickly and the food was great, even better they do have gluten free pasta you can ask for. Looking forward to our next visit.
I hade the manzo rare, it was fantastic. My wife had the gnocchi, which was also fantastic.
Had the bread basket, pizza, tiramisu, and a couple drinks (similar to margarita) & everything was great except the bread wasn’t my favorite! The oil would have been much better with some basil/parm or something but no biggie! Ambiance was very cute esp for a date night. A little pricey but I expected that for a nice Italian place. Would go again! *tried my friends steak and it was perfection
Thanks for spending New Year's with us! We hope you had a wonderful time.
The food was amazing and we really enjoyed our server, but we felt like we were being rushed out of the restaurant. Our reservation was at 8:45 PM and we understand the curfew for COVID BUT they should have warned us when we made the reservation that they would be rushing us out.
Delicious food in the loveliest of settings. The covered outdoor patio is a gem!
Hi Paul, We are so glad you enjoyed the food and covered patio. We hope to see you again soon!
Food tasted great, however the Pasta Fruti di Mare shouldn’t have been spicy. Ask the slice level or don’t include it in the sauce. Mouth was on fire. $5 for a bread? wow. also, took a few times to get the dessert and coffee out to the table. coffee wasn’t hot and we felt rushed. still enjoying the appetizers while the main entrees came out. i’ll give it another chance.
Thank you so much for your feedback. We will pass this information along. We look forward to having you back so we can show you a five-star experience!
Mulino's is my favorite Italian restaurant in Raleigh! Great food, great service, and a really nice atmosphere. The building is beautiful! I have only eaten on the patio due to Covid, but can't wait to eat inside. (Their inside is open for seating and they have safety precautions in place for those that would like to eat inside, the groups I've gone with have preferred outside seating.) You won't regret dining here!!
Hi Lindsay, Thank you so much for your kind words! We are so glad you love our food, service, and atmosphere. We look forward to safely serving you inside one day! :)
Without a doubt the best Italian food ever. It is our #1 restaurant for Italian cuisine. A complete package of service, ambience, and price.
Hi Bubba, Thank you so much for your kind words! We are so glad Mulino is your #1 restaurant for Italian. We look forward to seeing you soon!
The BEST gnocchi I have ever had! Super fresh ingredients and service was outstanding. Also beautifully decorated!
Hi Allison, Thank you so much for your kind words! We are so thrilled to hear you loved our gnocchi. We hope to see you again soon!
The night ended with gushing rain pouring through the tent! Haha decorated nicely for Christmas!
Hi Barbara, Thank you so much for joining us! We are so sorry about the rain! We hope you will join us again soon. :)
Amazing food! Loved the freshly made pasta! Beautiful decor & nicely spaced out. Staff was excellent in helping with both wine & food choices.
Hi Chan, We are so glad you enjoyed our freshly made pasta! We are happy to hear you were well taken care of during your visit. We hope you will join us again soon!
Great food, great service. Love the homemade pastas. Everything was fabulous. Just a heads up, soda refills for kids are not free though. Still worth it :)
Hi Kris, Thank you so much for your review! We are so glad you had great food and service. We hope to see you again soon!
Loved it! Had Christmas dinner and had an amazing time!
Thanks so much for joining us for Christmas dinner. We are so glad you had an amazing time. We hope to see you again soon!
Great food, great atmosphere, and great service. Would recommend.
Hi Abi, Thank you so much for recommending Mulino. We are so glad to hear you had great food and service!
We enjoyed our dinner on the patio and the holiday decorations made it extra special. Our server was knowledgeable and hard working. She wanted to make sure our evening was extra special. Our sons ordered the steak dinner special, I had the lasagna, and my husband had a special salmon dish. Each meal was cooked perfectly and full of flavor. We enjoyed appetizers and drinks before our meal and did not feel rushed. We would love to come back in the spring to enjoy the patio again. A must try for sure!
Hi Cindy, Thank you so much for joining us for dinner. We are so glad your family enjoyed their meals. We would love to have you back in the spring! We look forward to seeing you then.
The food, service (Valentina) and ambiance were amazing. Thankful for the outdoor seating and heating. Such a beautiful pivot given the circumstances that created a welcoming atmosphere while keeping patrons as safe as possible
Thank you so much for your review! We are so glad you enjoyed the food, service, and ambiance. We are so glad you felt safe underneath our heated tent! We hope to see you again soon.
Went for a birthday and everything was fantastic. Tables were spaced out properly and felt safe the entire time.
We all shared our meals to try a few different things. We got the gnocchi, duck ragu (pictured), manzo (also pictured) & a salmon pesto special. All were divine and the fresh pasta really makes a difference.
Thanks so much for celebrating with us! We are so glad you were able to enjoy yourselves safely. We love that you all shared so you could try several meals. We hope to see you again soon!
This was our first dining experience since Covid began. We felt safe and our distanced from other diners. The food was wonderful, the decor was relaxing , and the staff was knowledgeable and friendly. We will go back!
Hi TeResa, Thank you so much for dining with us! We are so glad to hear you felt safe. We look forward to having you back!
Great atmosphere and service! The food is delicious.
Hi Janet, Thank you so much for your kind words! We are so glad you enjoyed the food, atmosphere, and service.
Food was okay. Music was a techno on the outside which gave me a headache because it was just the same beat for 2 hours.
Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry to hear you did not have a five-star experience with us. We hope you will give us another try again soon!
Good food great atmosphere. Would recommend again. The cannoli was absolutely delicious.
Thank you so much for recommending Mulino! We are so glad you enjoyed the cannoli! We look forward to seeing you again soon.
Highly recommend. The staff was awesome and the food was amazing. With the pandemic and current executive orders in place, Mulino is currently closing early and we had to get our food order in by 8:45. Our reservation was for 8:30 and we were unaware of the 8:45 time limit and it was our first visit. However, the time limit wasn’t an issue for us as our server was impeccable. She made sure we had time to look over the menu without feeling rushed, helped us pick our meals, and even brought our food out to us overtime and not all at once. I cannot remember her name, but she was from Venezuela and super sweet. I highly recommend! - Kathryn
Hi Kathryn, Thank you so much for recommending Mulino! We are sorry we had to close up early but it sounds like you had a great experience even with the curfew. We look forward to seeing you again soon!
We had to send one dish back because it was lukewarm.
Hi Charlotte, Thank you for your feedback. We are so sorry to hear your dish did not come out perfectly. We hope you will give us another try again soon!
Mulino did a wonderful job with distancing and making the dining experience feel special 🙏🏼
Thank you so much for your review! We are so glad you felt safe and special. We hope you'll join us again soon!
Amazing atmosphere and food! Beautiful Christmas decor and a creative and authentic Italian menu. Loved it and will definitely be back.
Hi David, We are so glad you enjoyed the atmosphere and food! We look forward to having you back soon.
So fun! Love the food and ambiance!
Thank you so much! We are so glad you had a wonderful experience. We hope to see you again soon!
Love the food, especially the lasagna! Even the bread is delicious. The tented space provides for a safe "outdoors" socially distant environment. Love the ambience and everything about Mulino!
Hi Whitney, We are so glad you love the food! The lasagna is our favorite too. We hope to see you soon!
Doug, our server was phenomenal. Last time we were here it was Babylon. Still has the same open spaces and design. Great place to come if you want to safely space from others.
Hi Colin, Thank you so much for your kind words! We are so glad you had amazing service from Doug. We hope to see you again soon!
