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.

Your food was sub par at best. Being an Italian that lived in Italy I thought your gnocchi and the bolognese was not very fresh

Went for my husband’s birthday. It was clean and quiet. Great atmosphere with sports on at the bar, but casually elegant dining. The service was impeccable. Our servers were at our table attending to our every need, but never annoying or interrupting us. It was like old fashioned dining. They followed all dining etiquette. The wine list was extensive, and the food was amazing! The bread melted in your mouth. We also ordered the chef’s choice charcuterie. The cheeses were delicious and so were the perfectly shave pieces of salami and prosciutto. In the middle of the board was an arugula salad with peppers and olives. It was deliciously seasoned, and the perfect start to the meal. My husband ordered the gnocchi, and it was wonderful, but I had the goat cheese ravioli, and it was out of this world. It was so light and flavorful. The goat cheese was not over powering, but had more buttery tones. Because it was my husbands birthday, they finished our meal for us with a light and fluffy lemon tiramisu. It was heavenly. We had never eaten here before, but it has moved to the top of our list for our next trip to Nashville.
