Service was excellent. Our waiter’s suggested additions to our meal were spot on. The tuna tartare was disappointing as there was very little tuna in the dish, but otherwise the food was wonderful. The ambiance was more casual than the Vegas Il Mulino.

Super delicious and convenient! It’s pricey but you get what you pay for in my opinion. All our food was amazing - octopus, carrot ginger soup, ravioli, rack of lamb, and limoncello tiramisu.

My partner and I came to celebrate my 60th birthday. I thought I had kept the reason for the visit, a secret. But one of our servers happened to over hear us talking, and surprised us with dessert. Kudos for that. The service was awesome, we did not want for anything. The food was very tasty. Being Italian, it has to be special.

I only have a couple of points that are worth mentioning for diners new to this restaurant. First, if you enter from the hotel side, you have to pass through the dining room to find the host stand to check in. There was not sign pointing the way that I saw, until we had found the host stand on our own.

Secondly, they do a lot of up selling, from bottles of wine, the dinner special, and asking about salads with your meal. We are now aware salads are not included with the entree, that was not mentioned when being sold. We were also not told the price of the special which my partner had ordered. Granted we did not ask, but I can see how some might feel deceived. We are locals, but this location is downtown, in the tourist area, so that could leave a tourist a bad impression.

Overall, a fun night out for sure.

Food was OK but not amazing for the fine dining experience the restaurant implies. Service was polite but very slow. We waited about 30 minutes for drinks and 45 minutes for salad after ordering. Thankfully dinner came shortly after. The restaurant was about half full and appeared to have plenty of staff so we were unsure of the reason behind the slow service.

Visiting with family, went to north italia because we saw the Chrisley family eating there in an episode of their show. Food was fine, place was busy it was Christmas Eve but our waitress was outstanding. We had 8pm reservations on December 24th. Don’t remember the name of our waitress but she was fabulous. Give that girl a raise!

Absolutely wonderful meal Christmas Eve 2021. Very helpful waiters, delicious bread, huge wine list. The appetizer meatballs were great and very big. The octopus appetizer was enough for a meal. The fettuccine with clams also fantastic. Only disappointment was a slightly soggy caesar salad. Everything on the menu sounds great. Very intimate, great for a date but lots of groups were there too.

Tatiana and Totino (their names are mis-spelled) were outstanding. They were very attentive to our ever need last night

We had a great time our last night in Nashville. Food was excellent and served hot.

Our only complaint. We usually take a bottle of wine with us to dinner. Usual corking fees are $15, to $25 for a very high restaurant.

Trattoria charged us $35 for a corking fee. This is outrageous.

The pasta was excellent the wine selection not so much. The selection I chose was unavailable and the only one in that category was their most expensive at $225. Not that it wasn't beautiful just wanted an inexpensive one at $165. The service was spectacular with the best timing for serving I have ever experienced. The rigatoni was superb! Loved the garlic tones throughout. I will return because of the service and the pasta.

Our grown children arranged the evening including dinner, Ryman concert and hotel stay (Noelle) for combination Christmas, anniversary and retirement celebration.
Hospitality, special treatment and food were all exceptional. As experienced foodies (New Orleans, New York, Italy, England, etc.) this was one of our more memorable dinners, thanks to Ben and Daniel’s great service and suggestions!

I truly appreciate the restaurants that are still delivering a wonderful diner experience despite being short-staffed and hamstrung by local political silliness. Trattoria Il Mulino is one such restaurant.
