Food is fantastic!! The rack of lamb is the best. Their pastas are great as well. Kristen, our server, made the night so special. Will definitely be back.

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.

We had not been out to eat much since Covid. They were very Covid conscious snd kept people separate. Our waiter was excellent. We had a lovely dinner.

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!

We visited Nashville from Chicago, and found this restaurant on Yelp. Food was delicious, sangria was the best! Customer service was great too. We would definitely recommend this place and would go back.

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.

The waitress was very kind and flexible with menu items. She gave great suggestions and help with our meals. The restaurant, itself, was nice, quiet, and quaint. I did not really like the bread they brought before the meal, especially with two kids, but it is not a deal breaker. The food was very fresh and nicely prepared.

We wanted a pizza, a good wine list, & a quiet place where we could converse. We found all of this at Trattoria II Mulino. The chef even brought us a complimentary appetizer that was awesome.

The food and wine selections were amazing, and the service was 'over the top' spectacular! You can never go wrong ordering one of the house-made pasta's or sauces. The Pear Martini was a recently discovered hidden gem, and the Sangria was also very tasty. Already looking forward to my next visit!

We were looking for a great place to have dinner and a good steak. This was great and the staff was amazing! I have a severe onion allergy and they provided me with great options. The server we had was great and feel bad for not remembering her name but she was working with a nice young man named Daniel.

For my wife and I's first ever trip to Nashville we chose the Trattoria Il Mulino for our "nice" dinner. The entire experience was wonderful, mostly thanks to our server Shane. He and Cassie were so friendly and helpful they really made it feel special. Our food was excellent, I had the filet and it was cooked perfect and came with herbed butter on it. My wife had the shrimp and it was amazing, big and tasty! We will definitely go back there!

Trattoria Il Mulino is my favorite Italian restaurant in Nashville, hands down. I always look forward to the array of delicious cocktails, wines, and dishes to choose from (I am especially fond of their Godfather Manhattan.) The kitchen is always very accommodating of any food restrictions and all of the staff is very informative, well versed, diverse, and above all, equally kind. Tucked within the downtown Hilton, This restaurant and environment is a gem amongst the hustle and bustle of downtown Nashville, central to any downtown-planned event. Highly recommended for any occasion, big or small.
