The staff was great and the restaurant atmosphere was nice. We came here because IL Mulino in Manhattan is our favorite restaurant. To this restaurants credit I am comparing it to a place makes Italian with flavor like I have never experienced before. The food is no where close, how is the bruschetta or chicken parm not on the menu? I think I would’ve enjoyed this restaurant more if I hadn’t been to the original.

I have been to Il Mulino in New York and Las Vegas. This isn’t anything close. It feels like a restaurant in a hotel but with better food.

The food is good and the prices are reasonable. A casual spot for lunch and dinner.

Brunch is not available at this point.

Our servers were prompt and friendly. Food was excellent. Glad we went!! Getting there was a challenge due to the road in front of the restaurant being closed. But now we know the trick!

This stop was on an overnight impromptu drive through stay. Since it was Monday evening, many restaurants were closed. We saw the high ratings so headed over. With the place across the street from hockey arena we realized it wasn’t going to be the “fine dining” experience we were hoping for. That said, the food was fine, servers were very pleasant, & it was a nice walk to & from our hotel. Don’t mistake this for a negative review, we were just our for something more that night.

Went for brunch after reviewing the delicious menu online! We were very disappointed to learn that they no longer serve brunch, even though it says they do in several online places. They also had a very limited lunch menu and were out of meatballs, truffle fries, and something else I can’t recall. That made their menu VERY limited. Why we ordered was amazing, but it was one of the few things to choose from. Also, since we booked thinking we were getting brunch at 11:15 on a Sunday....we were the only patrons there. The entire time.

They ran out of truffle fries, gnocchi and meatballs. The pasta and sauce was below average. Caesar salad was warm and over dressed. Dessert was good as was the asparagus.

We had amazing service and food… As well as wine. Absolutely delicious and will definitely be back every time I am in Nashville! I have always walked by this place and never stopped. Clearly a major mistake! The only thing I would say is that we had stopped in the night before to make sure our 9 PM reservation was not too late… They assured us we would not be rushed and that as long as our food was ordered by 10 we would have plenty of time. We were slightly rushed by the bartender when he was ready to be done at 10:15, but he was friendly about it.

First time visitors that are always looking for some good Italian! The Ricotta Meatballs were great. Fresh made in house fettucine was awesome and added grilled shrimp and grilled octopus...mmmmm! No room for dessert but that gives us another reason to get back there soon!

I took my husband here for his birthday. And it was amazing. We started with a Ceaser salad and grilled Octopus, both were great! For the main course we had Goat Cheese Ravioli & 1/2 rack Lamb. Those were so good we forgot to take pictures lol. It’s on the pricey side, but nothing you wouldn’t expect for downtown Nashville. Our waiter was so attentive and sweet! We will definitely dine here again!

Excellent food and service.
I had a filet, I ordered it medium rare... it was cooked perfectly. The service was amazingly fantastic, excellent. I will definitely dine here again. It’s a little pricey, but it’s what is expected in a downtown area of a big city, like Nashville.

We started outside for our reservation, but the service was terrible outside (waited over 20 min for water and then server wasn't very friendly once he did arrive). However, the manager and interior staff were phenomenal and kindly moved us inside with many apologies. Food was delicious. We had pizzas, octopus, salads, and pasta and everyone loved their meal.
