    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.

    It was our first visit and it was beyond perfect. The cocktails were 10/10, the lasagna was 10/10, and the gnocchi was 20/10 (and adding the scallops was SO worth it). The tiramisu was so delightful too. Hands down the best Italian food in Raleigh. Can’t believe it took us so long to find out about it.

    My husband and I celebrated his birthday at Mulino’s. Our waitress, Megan, was informed on the menu and attentive. She suggested the lamb, and it was delicious. We did not feel rushed at any point. We enjoyed delicious drinks and a beautiful evening in a lovely atmosphere next to the pool. The evening ended with tiramisu and a birthday candle. Would definitely recommend and will be back again!

    First time at Mulino and there will be many more. Started with excellent cocktails, moved to frito misto calamari and bread. But the fresh pasta was the star! My friend ate the picci and enjoyed the tomato sauce and bucatini?My lasagna was delish with nice beef/pork and bechamel sauce. We ate by the “pool” and were drawn away from the city bustle. We could have been at an Italian villa. Great overall experience. Mulino is a gem waiting to be found! Mangia!

    This was our first time back since a not-so-stellar early post-COVID experience where the food was not up to their standard and service was pitiful, and I'd like to report that Mulino is back, baby! Their lasagna is my personal favorite (I mean, that béchamel! Wow!) from all that I have eaten in all my travels. I know it's a cliche dish, but I love this classic pasta creation that provides me all the feels. My wife's salmon was perfect as was my son's ravioli. The in-laws loved their pizza and we all took bites of the burrata salad that was spot on. FIL and I each had the fibonacci cocktail and it was a fantastic Italian take on an Old Fashioned. One that was familiar, yet different (in a great way). The service was impeccable with our server being attentive w/o hovering and we lacked nothing with our drink orders being filled quickly and special requests (extra marinara sauce) taken care without a blink of an eye. Super happy all the way around and glad we returned.

    Fantastic restaurant. I wish I had been coming here sooner. Food, atomosphere/decor and service all paired up perfectly. I will return!

    The atmosphere was amazing. This is the perfect spot if your looking for a date night or a group night out with friends. So beautiful, rustic Italian charm. The food was amazing, from the homemade burrata cheese to the freshly made pastas. You get a lot for your money’s worth! All the plates are sharable or you will go home with take out bags. Will definitely come back!

    Food was only luke warm upon arrival. Simple meals of tagliatelle with bolognese sauce which was flavorless. Lasagna which I have made better at home also luke warm and a ravioli dish swimming in a cream sauce. Server asked my opinion and I was honest but no attempt to remedy the situation. Later the manager asked and I told him how disappointed we here especially since we were entertaining friends. I have been to Mulinos twice before and loved it. Not sure why it was such an off night.

    We had a reservation. We were on time. There were 3 young girls at the hostess check-in area. NONE of them said even "Hello". I told them my name and one of them showed us to the table. It needs to be part of their job to say at the very least "Hello" and they should at least talk to you! We sat at our table for 12 minutes and no one came by. I actually stopped one of the workers and asked if there was someone who waited on this table. They brought us water and our waiter eventually showed up. He was not friendly either. He said it was prom night and they were slammed. The food was decent but this was my first visit and likely my last visit. Whenever I go to a nice restaurant, I expect the workers to be friendly and pleased to see us. This was not the case.

    Wonderful ambience! Service was very good. Waiter was attentive and helpful!! The food was good. I am from New york so I'm a bit picky on italian food. The scallop appetizer was excellent. The bread was excellent. My amitriciana was good but we didn't care for the lasagna. The cocktails were also excellent!!

    This was our first visit to Mulino. It's in downtown Raleigh and kind of hidden as we have driven past it's location numerous times and never noticed it before. We had made the reservation for a standard table inside, but Friday it was so nice outside we asked if we could get a patio table and they were more than happy to accommodate us. Our waiter was at our table right away and gave us just a little bit of history of the building. It's a WWI knitting mill, which we thought was interesting! Mulino means "mill" in Italian. Then he took our drink orders. After looking over the menu, we decided to order the deep fried rice "balls" (not really ball shaped). They were a little bland, but still good. I ordered the tagliatelle, a wide, long noodle, tomato, beef & pork with cheese dish. My wife had the tonnarelli, a thick spaghetti, creamier based carbonara-type dish. All pastas are fresh-made. Right at the end of our meal, it started to rain, so we were moved inside where we ordered a dessert (a rare move for us). We ordered the tiramisu, it was light and airy, with not a heavy coffee overpowering taste, since neither of us are coffee drinkers this was a big plus. The food was good and fresh, the service was fast and friendly and the setting was very nice. Give Mulino and try, you will not be disappointed.

    Mulino's seldom misses the 5-Star mark. This was overall an excellent dining experience. I splurged and ordered the 14 oz ribeye (medium) and it was outstanding. Not sure I like having to use a QR app to read parts of the menu, but I understand that is becoming more common... so I'll have to adapt. I'm one who'd rather not have to bring my mobile phone to dinner. They were very busy, but our server did a wonderful job, was very attentive, and certainly made our experience even better.

    We've dined here several times previously, but the food was not at all what we remember. The waiter mentioned they had changed the menu. However, the pasta dishes and pizzas we ordered were very ho-hum. My husband got the rack of lamb and said it was delicious. The service was fast and polite.
