Food was mediocre at best
Beautiful venue, amazing food and fantastic staff. We will definitely be back
Waitress was rude and when I asked a question about anything on the menu it was a smart condescending response. It was cold outside so we asked if we could be seated inside as soon as we sat down she asked “are we now good with this seating?” With an attitude. I think she was tired but it made me feel uncomfortable. She also snatched the bill out of my hand when I was trying to pay for my boyfriend we we were celebrating him and in today’s society if a woman pays for a man, it should be accepted. She then said my boyfriend should pay even when I said we were celebrating him. She made my friends feel uncomfortable.
Birthday dinner. Food was average for top rating it gets on Yelp
Food was good, but Service wasn’t. We felt like we were being served quickly and pushed out of the restaurant.
Wonderful Italian food! The branzino was one of the best I’ve ever had, the house made pasta had the right texture and held its sauce well, and the house made limoncello was smooth and the perfect finish. The service was thoughtful and attentive. Will definitely be back!
Fantastic food quality and service in a retro building. The fresh pasty was outstanding. I had the lasagna, and, for a guy who eats out a ton, it was arguably the best I have ever had.
Great food and service. Would highly recommend.
So good, our food was delicious and the service was excellent!
Always great food and service. Pasta is just special, but pizza is solid too.
Overall excellent experience but dessert of lava cake was only disappointment in that it was dry and crumbly no “lava”
Food was excellent. My party had three different dishes and all three were delicious! This was our first time and we all have commented that we will definitely return to try new dishes...or get the same ones again!
Wonderful restaurant with relaxed, elegant setting. The food is simple and well prepared, and staff was so nice to talk to. Definitely plan to come back!
I like the ambiance, and the food was great. It is pricey for what you get, but isn't that life...
Bri is amazing!
During our dinner the background music was not playing due to some type of glitch. We found this to be quite refreshing and enjoyable as usually you cannot have a simple conversation without all of the noise. It actually allowed us to slow down and really enjoy the overall experience you provided. I highly recommend considering doing away with the unnecessary noise as most people dine out to enjoy each others company anyway. Thanks again for a very pleasant evening out! - Mark
I have been to many Italian restaurants in area and Italy wondered why this one was lacking in several areas. First, there was no bread offered with the meal Second, no extra cheese (parmesan) and black pepper was offered. Lastly, the appetizer ordered (shrimp and calamari) did not have the vegetables included as stated in the menu.
Everything a la carte. Do not serve ice tea. Did not offer bread, and when asked for bread provided a very small portion (no oil or cracked pepper).
I’ve drive by on my way to work and always wanted to try. My parents were in town, and when families in town we do Italian. We were blown away! Great service, great food, and beautiful restaurant. I would 100% recommend. Also look fantastic to host a private event. Definitely check out the back room.
Mulino is a spacious old mill with friendly employees. I'd love to see it on a busier night. Maybe a little buzz would have filled the large space and made it feel cozier and more vibrant than it did. We enjoy really nice food and we're lucky to have so much of it in Raleigh. In this case, the food was good but nothing that knocked our socks off.
This was my very first time here at Mulino, and it will definitely not be my last. The food was amazing, the service was perfection and the atmosphere was so beautiful. I cannot wait to go again.
Great Meal. Great service!
Why thank you, Phil! We look forward to seeing you again soon.
Delicious homemade Italian dishes with the gnocchi melting in your mouth. Service is friendly and prompt. Very cool and romantic outdoor seating. Definitely will come back!
Amazing staff and even better food !! Amazing place for a date night
We’ve been to Mulinos multiple times before and enjoyed it, so when I saw they had a Valentines event I jumped on it. At $200 for two tickets I thought we’d be getting something truly special. The food wasn’t that great, the wine was ok, the cocktail they served was decent. Overall was an ok night. It was unfortunate to spend $200 and end up receiving something that was lesser value than their regular dining meals. The outdoor seating area looked great though, the roses were a great touch and the pedals all over the water was very romantic.
Thank you for the feedback, Ethan! We enjoyed sharing the special holiday with you.
Great time at Mulino for Valentine’s Day! The venue is absolutely beautiful. The limited menu was great and service was spectacular! The only, slight “issue” I would say we had was that our risotto with the first course was cold. I know they made this is mass quantities for the occasion, and it was still good, but just was the only downside. Other than that it was great! We will be returning to try their full menu options!
Thank you for the kind remarks, Anna! We are so glad you enjoyed your dining experience and graciousness in giving us valuable feedback regarding the risotto. We look forward to hosting you and yours again soon!
Fantastic service. Great employees
Thank you! We look forward to seeing you again soon.
We went for valentine's day and had the four course meal they offered. The first meal was luke warm but delicious. Thr owner/ chef was very active and the manager was attentive.
Thank you for the high marks, Brittany! We are so glad you were able to enjoy a nice night out with us. Cheers!
never went to an Italian resturant that didn't serve bread with the meal. Food was very bland.
Thank you for sharing your feedback with us, Vincent. We're sorry you didn't enjoy the experience more and hope to make it up to you in the future.
Very good, reasonably priced food and wine. Choice of seating in the old mill building or in a large covered patio. Will definitely return. Recommended
Ordered ravioli... was overcooked / hard. Not worth the money.
We had an excellent early Valentines dinner. John our waiter was well informed and attentive. The food was outstanding. We will definitely be dining here again.
Amazing food amazing service
Service was great, food was delicious! The heated outdoor patio had wonderful romantic atmosphere. Will be back.
Love this place. As always the food was amazing!
A very good place to have a dinner for a special occasion. The menu is simple and easy to understand. The service is great and the food is delicious. Would recommend.
Good overall, food tatey and great atmosphere
Beautiful space, great customer service and delicious food. The special was gnocchi with a bolognese and short ribs...they did not disappoint. The gnocchi was fresh and the sauce had a perfect bit of spice. The short ribs were huge and super tender.
The ambiance at Mulino is like nothing else in Raleigh. The outdoor patio is wonderful and the indoor space is very cozy. The service and food are outstanding. I will return there again and agian.
Lovely atmosphere. Service was awesome. Food is always delicious. Only special touch missing was nothing extra for a birthday celebration. That was surprising given how great everything else is.
