WOW, this place was disappointing. It pretends to be a legit, everything-from-scratch Italian joint. NOOOOPE! It’s all pretending on the surface, and nothing but a couple steps above Olive Garden under the hood. No substance. No flavors.

Hey, at least it has that extremely bland restaurant-just-off-the-hotel-lobby atmosphere.

If you’re a tourist with no taste, you’re gonna feel right at home here. Enjoy!

Trattoria II Mulino feels more New York City than one block from Nashville's Music Row. You will like that. The flavors here are outstanding, from the small buttery garlic rolls served early to a really nice arugula salad, made simply with sliced aged parmesan to a lemon dressing. Not seeing a Veal or Chicken Piccata on the menu, the waiter offered to have one made to my order. I chose chicken piccata and it was prepared thin, lightly breaded, with a tasty lemon and caper sauce. The wine list is naturally loaded with Italian selections and price points to fit all budgets. I highly recommend this restaurant!

Pasta was undercooked and so was the pizza. Three attendants and not one asked how the food was until bringing the check. Would not go back.

Unlike some other Il Mulinos this one is noisy with average food and service.
Not worth the price.

The service was excellent without being annoying. The food was great and the wine pours were generous. We dined here on CMA night but were attending a concert at The Ryman. Our server made sure to ask if we needed to be done at a certain time for our show. We will definitely come again for a special occasion!

Normally, I am not crazy about restaurants in hotels. But this was recommended and I also know that there is a branch or two in NYC, so we went. Yum, yum. Chicken in crosta was out of this world. Service fantastic, and an oasis of sanity in an otherwise insane street scene in Nashville.

We took friends there because my wife loves their Rack of Lamb. The husband said “this is the best dinner I have had in the city in a good while. It is my new favorite.” The wife had culinary restrictions but they were very accommodating.

The service and ambiance was by far the best part of the experience! Food was alright, not sure worth the price but was not bad by any means. Wine selection is fantastic.

My wife and I had a late dinner after the Grand Ole Opry, so decided to order 4 appetizers rather than a main course. To our surprise, our server brought all 4 dishes at the same time, assuming that we would want to eat them all together. Upon request, two of the appetizers went back to the kitchen. The grilled octopus was tasty and the tuna tartare and mussels were both good, but the ricotta meatballs were disappointing in terms of both flavor and texture. Our server disappeared for long periods and we had to flag someone down a couple of times. We might give it another try, but would hesitate to recommend to a friend.

I love this restaurant. My only complaint for tonight was that the usually attentive service was not as great. Just little things like getting bread to the table after ordering our wine or checking on how our meal was earlier than before we were finished and then having to ask for the dessert menu rather than having it offered were all tiny annoyances, but very much off our usual experience here. They weren't at all busy, and we had two servers (and a separate bread person), so it was a little surprising.

Snapper Mediterranean for me and my wife had a Trattoria Salad with Salmon. Everything was well prepared, both fishes were perfect! Add a glass of wine each and we were ready for a hockey game! Food and service here are exactly what you expect, both top notch!

In search of a lighter meal I ordered a 1/2 order of Arugula Ravioli and my wife ordered a side of pasta with garlic and olive oil. We shared an order of asparagus. 1/2 orders and side orders work well here, and flavor and freshness is always consistent! Served with a glass of wine each and we were ready for a hockey game.

Awful. Waited 5 min for a greet. Another 5 min for my wine and that was spilled all over the table my glass and me. My daughter wait 10 min for her Shirley temple I had to keep asking for. Subbed veggies for pasta charges $10. Crazy! Salad can and server flung so hard giving to me the park and arugula fell off. Again had to wait 10 more min for refills. Good came out 2 min after receiving salads. Awful experience. And at no point was there an apology or even a thank you have a good night when we left. Never again will I go there. We will go next door to the Palm instead.

Great Italian restaurant in central location in Nashville. Good selection of Italian entrees and other options (I had grouper with candied sweet potatoes, my husband had wild mushroom ravioli). We would go back.

We arrived with the last reservation of the evening but everything was amazing! Other than not being offered dessert because they wanted to close up, I could not have been more pleased with the restaurant. My seafood pasta was absolutely amazing. My guests lamb was exceptional. I would highly recommend this place to anyone considering an amazing Italian meal.

Sometimes you just want comfort food, and at Il Mulino for us that means Spaghettini with a good glass of wine. So we each ordered a side of Spaghettini and a glass of Masi and really enjoyed the meal. It was obviously a good choice, we won the hockey game 6 - 1.

We planned on spending my husbands 30th birthday at Trattoria! We had reservations for a Monday night and when we walked in a little bit early we were seated almost immediately!

Our waitress was very nice and very knowledgeable about the menu! We ordered the Calamari Picanti to start. It was very delicious! The calamari was breaded and cooked to perfection! The complimentary bread and tapenade was also very great! My husband ordered the smoked old fashion and enjoyed it very much!

For dinner my husband ordered the Frutti Di Mare and I ordered the Ravioli. Both were very good! My husband loves a good italian seafood dish and he said this one hit the spot! All the fish was cooked perfectly and the squid ink pasta was very good as well!

We absolutely loved our dinner and I am very happy with the service we received to make my husbands birthday extra special!

Went for my 31st birthday with my family our waiter was horrible not attentive to our table but very attentive to the other tables in the area. If it wasn’t for another older lady waiter and the lady bringing the beverages I wouldn’t even give the overall 2 star rating. It is unfortunate as the food was good but the waiters attitude ruined the first time and my birthday dinner

I tried the Lobster Mac and Cheese (a side) and Asparagus (also a side) and my wife had a Side of Pasta Aioli (spaghetti noodles, garlic, and olive oil; not on the menu but they can prepare it upon request.) I had not tried the Lobster Mac and Cheese before, but it could easily be a main course item, lots of very good food there. And as the season has begun to change we moved to the Masciarelli as our wine choice and it went well with everything. Thanks to Melissa and Flori for excellent service!
