Two orders of pasta, prepared with garlic, olive oil and spinach; one served with shrimp and the other with salmon; accompanied by two glasses of Masciarelli red wine. Excellent food, very good wine, with good service in very comfortable, welcoming surroundings.

As with any really good Italian Restaurant, if they have the pasta you want the Chef can prepare it in just about any way you want. Having enjoyed most of the pasta dishes on the menu, we requested that they prepare a simple pasta with garlic, olive oil, and spinach with one order with a piece of salmon and one with shrimp. Both were exceptional and the shrimp and salmon were prepared and seasoned so well! Great service, and a glass of really nice wine made for a great evening.

MEH! very average at best. had reservations for apps and drinks at 6:15 before an event at 7:30. had no table for us when we arrived and did not seem concerned in the least. offered us nothing for our inconvenience. the hostess had the most bored, annoyed, unpleasant visage. eventually sat at the bar with an equally bored, annoyed, unpleasant bartender. maybe it was all the preds fans? my mistake for ordering a caprese salad in the winter, but the "heirloom" tomatoes were mealy and unripe.

We came here for dinner on thanksgiving because we were looking for non-traditional thanksgiving food. They served the a la Carte menu as well as a thanksgiving menu. The grilled octopus appetizer was great but the main pasta dishes were quite bland (although big servings). We booked a table but had to wait 15 minutes before being seated. It looked like many people were waiting to be seated for their table too. All in all an okay restaurant - not sure it’s worth the price.

We arrived an hour early for our reservations and checked in. We went to the bar for drinks. We let the hostess know that if anything opened up earlier that we would like to be seated. While we waited at the bar, the hostess and assistant manager seated at least three parties that were walk-ins without a reservation. When we spoke to the assistant manager about this, he told us that when someone cancels an Open Table reservation, it frees up the table for other patrons. We were "other patrons" patiently waiting at the bar and being virtually ignored by the hostess and assistant manager. He didn't seem to think there was anything wrong with that scenario...we who had reservations being made to wait while the restaurant seated walk-in patrons. I need to be in Nashville several times in the upcoming months and will definitely not be returning to Trattoria Il Mulino.

The food was outstanding, the service was amazeballs, the wine was superb, the rare Scotch was fantastic, and the specialized dessert for my birthday was literally drool-worthy. Total cost was entirely reasonable for having ordered an $80 shot of Scotch. 10/10 Would eat there again!

Dining here before an event at the Bridgestone has become a ritual for us. And as we learn more about their ability to prepare pasta dishes not on the menu (pasta, with garlic, olive oil and spinach!) it has become even more enjoyable. Our server Shane has turned out to have a really nice appreciation for the available wines by the glass which has resulted in our introduction to several Italian reds we might not have tried otherwise. Friendly, knowledgeable staff, great food ; what's not like?!

We weren't impressed with the dinner. My wife ordered a "signature dish" and I a had the Black Ink Linguine with Octopus. Octopus was very tough. Not seasoned correctly and sauce was very plain.
My wife dish was also lacking in taste. Plain tasting dishes. Nothing special. Although ambience was nice.

Alas, one disappointment in a lovely dinner.
A great pizza crust is really good Italian bread worked into a special form. Trattoria's flat cracker hardly competes with an intoxicating mixture of chewy and crisp with undertone of yeast.
Please don't take this a a stay-away message; the place is otherwise quite rewarding - and priced properly for what they deliver.
Tuna tartar appetizer is great!
Last time had the rack of lamb: an impressive plate of good and plenty.
Broccoli rabe very nicely done - and a special find in our town.
Wait staff is very attentive and helpful.
Easy valet park.
Maybe they will get a work visa for an Italian to come make the dough?
We will be back for more......

I have been here on several occasions. Sunday night must have been an off night. The food was great, but the service was very poor. Once we were seated, the server took our order and brought our wine. We did not see him afterwards. Another server took over for the remainder of the meal. The bread server passed our table at least 3 times without stopping to serve us. We had to ask the server who took over from the initial server to get bread for us. No one checked on us during our meal to inquire if anything else was needed. Our next interaction with the server was when she inquired about dessert. We declined and asked for our check.

I'm not sure if this night was an off night. This is the first time service has been lacking here. It was not crowded, so unsure what the issues were.
