We had the best lunch! The bartender Luis was very knowledgeable and utterly charming. His recommendations were excellent and the food lived up to his reports. I had the branzino special and it was delicious. I would definitely return.

Pre-Preds game; so wanted good, easy and proximal to Bridgestone.

Hostess greeted and seated on time for reservation. Nick, our Server, greeted us and took drink orders and intended to come back to discuss dinner specials. Then, the proverbial wheels came off ... XXXXXXX appeared and explained that she was Nick’s partner to help with our meal. When Nick came back and learned that XXXXXXX had essentially hi-jacked our table, he literally vanished (wish we could have gone to his other table). XXXXXXX, bless her heart, lacked the basic / necessary skills to meet our service expectations. We, as a table, could not decide which was worse — her curt replies / almost seemingly derogatory answers or her body language and perpetual scowl(s). Fortunately, the food, drink and company were able to off-set XXXXXXX’s stumbles and mishaps — for a “save” of an average three stars. As a side note, while paying our bill we also notice XXXXXXX “get into it” again with Nick at another table. Most unfortunate!?! We expressed our concern of the unprofessionalism and below-average experience and service to the Hostess stand — so, hopefully, XXXXXXX will be having a better night for your dining experience or will have been coached up to meeting and exceeding Management’s expectations. The night ended well with Preds comeback win, but we did not go back to enjoy dessert — out of fear of deja vu with XXXXXXX!?!

Pregame meal, I had the Snapper Mediterranean and my wife had the Trattoria Salad with Salmon. Both were fresh and very flavorful. Complimented by a glass of Bottega Vinaia and very attentive service( thank you Flori) and we were ready forwhat turned out to be a really good hockey game! This restaurant has never disappointed.

Second time we’ve tried. This dining experience was worse than than last one. Pasta is not fresh; food came out cold; bread tasted like it was days old. The wine list may be the most overpriced in Nashville and that is saying a lot. Will not be back.

First game of the hockey season, and it was good to get back to Il Mulino. My wife and I split an order of spaghettini, added a glass of Bottega Vinia each and we were ready for the game. Excellent service (thank you Flori!), very tasty meal, and a warm, welcoming atmosphere!

My companion and I wanted to have dinner before attending a concert at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, TN. I selected Trattoria Il Mulino because of the style of cuisine, the expansive wine list, and the close proximity to the concert venue. They also provide complementary valet parking.

The interior ambiance is great. Service was very good. The food was delicious and the drinks refreshing. Highly recommend this restaurant.

This is my favorite Italian spot in Miami so I was thrilled to see this cake to Nashville. It is a smaller menu as it is a trattoria but still has a great selection of entrees to choose from. Great wine selection, carpaccio was excellent, we were stuffed but had to get dessert since bread pudding was on the menu. And it was worth gaining the extra calories. You can dress up or down. The only con about this gem is if you dress up with heels, there are 2 sets of stairs to get thru to get to the restaurant and it can be sketchy but we’ll worth the risk.

From start to finish, our experience was excellent. The wine was wonderful, service was excellent and the food was delicious. I had the soup special and I didn’t even finish it before the main course arrived. Service was fast! I would absolutely go back.

We were at Trattoria ll Mulino on a Friday night. It was loud and busy. Our waiter was slow with providing water and the bottle of wine we ordered. Busy taking caring of a larger table.
Service fair but food was good.

We had dinner the night before and everything was great! We invited another couple over and 3 of the entrees were less than acceptable. Very hard to hear each other and the waiter disappeared halfway into the meal. Another wait person who waited on us the night before waited on us for any additional needs. He was an exceptional member of your staff. Additionally, The staff serving water and bread were very attentive.

Many thanks to the Trattoria crew for making our 14th Anniversary super special! Each member of the staff signed a keepsake Italian card for us and demonstrated gracious customer service throughout the meal. The goat cheese ravioli never disappoints and is our absolute favorite item on the menu. The atmosphere is perfect for special occasions. Don't skip the dark chocolate gelato... Truly divine! Thanks again for a wonderful evening Cassie, Ben, and Tenisha! You're the BEST!!

Menu somewhat limited and it was very warm inside the restaurant. Uncomfortable.
Dress code was a bit lax for "smart casual".
Excellent service though.

This is a wonderful place to celebrate! We went for our son's birthday. It is also in a wonderful location if heading to the Bridgestone Arena or if you want a nice dinner before hitting the craziness of Broadway.

Food was good, service was patchy. Highlight; veal Marsala. Rich, flavourful. Lowlight; left waiting for 5-10mins after we were sat at our table with no service and no menus.

The temperature in the restaurant was warm/no air flow. Not enough servers for the volume of sat tables which sacrificed the level of service we receive especially considering the price of the meal. Not a great value.

Atmosphere was great, service was fine & food was delicious. Some items on menu were on the pricey side mostly because of ala cartel issue.
