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.

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.

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.

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?

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

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.

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!!

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!

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.

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
