Service was great. Pasta was nothing special and one piece of octopus so chewy it was inedible. Sat in an empty back corner which felt very isolated until a few other diners finally joined. Would have been romantic with a date but was not very interesting with my adult child. In hindsight, would have enjoyed sitting at the bar more.

We went for easter brunch and had a lovely time. THere were enough options for brunch. THough non-alcoholic drinks should have been included. Alcoholic drinks slightly expensive. Ambiance was excellent. Food was good, and a decent value. I would return

Easter Brunch was a huge disappointment. The selections were less than half of what I have seen at the 100 or so other brunches in my lifetime.
They offered slices of cheesecake with raspberry sauce. When I went back there was none left so I asked for some. A lady handed me a plate with a slice on it but no raspberry sauce. I asked her for some raspberry sauce and she rolled her yes and made a huge loud sigh that said she was so incredibly put out and rudely shoved it at me after putting sauce on.
The waiter could not be found. We had to go find our own silverware, sit for over 15 minutes to get a beverage every time we wanted one. We called the manager and told him of our experience and he was very defensive and refused to listen to us. No customer service at all here. I had been one other time for dinner. Food was good but service was horrible.

Overall the food and atmosphere was good. The portion size and presentation for an upscale Italian restaurant was very poor. Cocktail selection limited and bathrooms have a horrible smell. I would recommend the outdoor bar perhaps for an event or just a simple beer or wine drink.

LOUD partly due to wedding party.
Small portions (3 scallops in the risotto of the day?) that were only okay to me however my companions enjoyed their food. Wines were average and not outstanding for the price
Service was good.
Overall just average to below average.

The lasagna was unbelievable. We had a great time . Food and wine was amazing. Birthday celebration but no desert offered so was disappointed about that as it was a large party and would have expected some acknowledgement of celebrant . A bit noisy but food made up for the noise.

Brian/Bryan was our server and very knowledgeable about the food as well as the wine list. My wife and I had a night out without our 3 & 5 year old. It was just her and I for much needed adult conversation. We thoroughly enjoyed everything from beginning to end. The Carpaccio and Rice Ball were great, The Lamb was phenomenal, The Bolognese was fantastic and Brian/Bryan recommended a wine that pair perfect with everything. We will be returning again!! Great experience.

My wife and I were celebrating our 1 year wedding anniversary. I'm so glad I picked this restaurant. Everything was spot on. The valet seems to be a bit over whelmed, but other then that it was a perfect night. Shout out to Eric our waiter. Thank you.

This is a great place for dinner. Great food, great staff, and great ambience. We were there for the first time, and so had a little difficulty finding it. Parking is somewhat limited, but we were there early and had no problem. From greeting at the door to final bill and departure staff were great. Food was excellent, although we had screwed up and not arrived hungry. (we'll fix that problem for the next time, and there will be a next time). The Lasagna was pronounced great by our dining companions and we were happy with the wine list.

The surroundings (in an old textile mill) inside and out made us feel like we had found some place out of the ordinary.

Highly recommend it.

Decent food with less than mediocre service. Unable to make a mocktail for this 8 1/2 months pregnant chick, which seemed ridiculous to me for any bartender with a full bar setup and experience.

Cool building however

I planned a birthday dinner for one of my friends and was excited to see that Mulino Italian Kitchen & Bar had enough space to accommodate a party of 13. Everyone in our group had a great time and were very happy with their food, drinks and the overall atmosphere. We had a dedicated waiter, named Brian, and he was wonderful. My hanger steak entrée was great, and the staff was very hospitable - especially for a party of 13! I'm looking forward to a return trip.

Everything from the bartender while we waited for our table and our server Paul to the food was great! Really gorgeous ambiance, we were sat in the back with a 7 person group. Quiet enough so we could talk to one another. Great drinks and appetizers. Entrees were also amazing! Only bad thing was the salad I got, which was a little boring and for the price not worth it. But everything else was super great! Would definitely recommend!

Far better than its predecessor, this restaurant has excellent cuisine, a warm restated interior, located in a old industrial structure. Service is excellent, knowledgeable waitstaff, and a gracious menu. Not to mention a very satisfactory wine list. We all enjoyed our experience!

Dined at Mulino on a Wednesday night, so the restaurant was not very crowded. Greeting, seating and initial approach was very good. Wednesday night Special was ordered by 3 out of 4 guests and everyone loved the special. Spaghetti Carboneri (spelling) with Pancetta was excellent. Tiramasu desserts were wonderful. Overall...highly recommended and we will return.

This was our third trip to Mulino. Would have to say service was good but not as exceptional as on the first two visits. Same with the food. The Lamb dish was excellent as were the Mushroom Ravioli. The Gnocchi were just ok and the Risotto special was a bit heavy on the fennel and was only average. The ambiance is great. Wine a tad overpriced. Wish they had not gotten rid of the Limoncello dessert which was a favorite of mine. The chocolate dessert was enough for two and over the top rich. The Tiramisu was a bit lemony for my taste. Overall it'a we enjoyed it but it has gone slightly downhill from previous visits.

We got the worst experience, the server was so bad and he said no for every question we asked! I’m sure he has no clue he was not welcoming didn’t offer appetizers or beverages. I paid 50$ on a pasta ball and a gnocchi plate! It was the worst experience for a restaurant ever.
