This restaurant is permanently closed. Showed up on Valentine’s Day. It is a different restaurant entirely now. This needs to be updated.

Not open lol made reservations & came to find out it’s shut down, they should really take it off the recommended list at the “information center” haha, we came to eat & it was shut down. I would have rated higher. They have great food I hear & was sad we didn’t get to experience. Best wishes to all of the Mutus staff😊

This business wasn't even open despite the fact that open table allegedly confirmed my reservation. Phone wasn't even in service so been closed awhile. Find out at 730 that we don't have a reservation after all and everything in town closes at 8pm.

Open Table states that they are open and have availability but the Durango Herald ran an article about them closing for good!

Our waitress was very prompt, and professional. The meal was fried cheese curds, Calamari, Lasagna and Carpaccio. All very good and good size portions. The restaurant had good spacing from other tables and they seemed to have figured out how to enjoy your meal without masks. Most other patrons kept their mask on while not eating or drinking. We felt safe while there.

Not a great experience. It took at least 20 minutes for our waiter to acknowledge we had been seated and throughout our meal only checked on us one time. The Alfredo sauce was watery - very disappointing. The portion of the Ravioli special was like a kids plate. There seemed to be more staff than patrons, yet service was slow for every table within sight. This experience was unlike previous experiences at this dining establishment - not going back.

It was a pleasant ambiance, though the food was not good. Pork was dry, the Pistachio crusted Mahi was not crunch, was soggy...

We were seated right on time at a comfortable table for four. The appetizer menu had a good selection and the dinner was excellent. I was pleasantly surprised at the wine selection. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

Food was very mediocre. Chicken Marsala was nothing to rave about. The calamari horrible and cold.

This was my second time eating here. The food was average and was priced appropriately. Extremely small serving of salmon and the chicken was good but was of average quality. The calamari appetizer was superior. Great waitress and there was plenty of outdoor seating. Good place to eat but do not expect authentic or original Italian food here.

Outdoor dining was perfect. Lots of space to spread out. Food was good. Service was okay. Teaching the staff to service more than one table at a time would help move things along.

The ambiance and service was amazing. Our server was knowledgeable and was able to tell us about the dishes we had questions about, and even made suggestions about what he liked best. The only complaint we had was the red sauce on my husband's pasta was a little watery. It didn't affect the taste though, which was amazing.

Wonderful outdoor experience. Food was good but it was better when we went in late Aug. 2020. Service was better in Aug also. Maybe short staffed with the pandemic? Still a great place. We'll be back!

Outstanding in every way! We remembered Mutu's from our last trip to Durango 4 years ago and went again last week. Worth making a special trip! Our items were tomato bisque, beef carpaccio, and shrimp scampi, cheesecake and tiramisu--all wonderful.
