    Very good meals. Pasta is delicious (had lasagna and Picci). Arancini app was also delicious. Service was attentive and professional. Great ambiance out on patio!!! Only complaint is that the have the gall to charge you $6 for a basket of bread... in an Italian restaurant??? Yikes... should just be included.

    Worst experience ever.. celebrated my birthday here over the weekend and I will never be dining at Mulino again. The waiter forgot about my friends food and the manager picked at him about not being able to hear like that was suppose to make it better that everyone at the table had almost finished there food and hers hadn’t even been put in the oven yet. He then argued with her saying she didn’t place a order when indeed everyone at the table heard her. The manager kept walking by giving our table weird looks because I booked a party of 10 and 3 ppl did not show up due to a car accident in route to my birthday celebration. Then the waiter came over and suggested next time we change it on open table before we arrive. Things happened I did not know they were going to get in a accident and I did tell the host that the number of my party changed and she politely said Ok. I felt very unwelcomed at Mulino and I will never be dining there again and it upsets me,because the food is really good but the service and communication is horrible.

    They wont give the table by the pool, they said a big party is going to take that spot, no one took it till we left, also its not like you can reserve a specific table so why not give it to someone who is already there

    We decided to come here to celebrate an anniversary. The ambiance and setting was fantastic. The hostesses and servers were kind but the service ended up being slightly sub par. Water glasses were never refilled. The food wasn’t anything to write home about and very overpriced for the taste and presentation. Would only come back for drinks.

    Ambiance was A+ but food was just ok. Nothing to write home about. We ordered the prime rib - smothered in gravy which is always a reason to pause. Bolognese was decent but noodles were maybe over cooked - not sure how to describe it. Frito misto was terrible - totally over done and felt like it was just sitting under a heat lamp. Service was good.

    The food and service were outstanding. There was no pressure to checkout. The scallops were to die for! The ONLY thing I wish were different is the music. It was almost techno. Which is fine but, in an Italian restaurant, some classic Frank would be so nice. We will definitely be back!

    I was there to celebrate my husband’s bday. It was a disaster from the start. The place felt like it was there first time working a dinner service. The hostess was running around, the waitress rushed us to order, and never got the wine list to order my 2nd drink. I thought restaurants love upping the bill with drinks? The food was lukewarm and got the bill right after. It was such a disappointment. I hate complaining about restaurants but it was just a huge disappointment and I really hope it was gonna be better.

    I was very disappointed, because I made a reservation for my husband's birthday and they asked me through you if I had any special request, because I asked for a special table with some decoration which could be charged to the same card with which I made the reservation . To my surprise the day we arrived there was absolutely nothing that I requested. I wonder why they ask at the time of making the reservation if there is any request or special request. ???

    Food was poorly done. The calamari was dried out. Suspect it was kept warm under a heat lamp. They use fresh pasta, however I had the wide pasta and a significant amount was stuck together to the point of having to cut into pieces and spear with a fork versus twirling with a fork and spoon. The price was $48 for 2 pasta dishes.

    Very very loud, cramped inside, food was over cooked and burnt, asked to sit at a table and was told that we couldn’t sit there.. So we got sat beside the door with people going in and out as a couple was seated in that exact seat we pointed out. Because it had rained they cramped everyone inside it was very loud you couldn’t hear yourself think. My food was over cooked and bread was burnt. 3rd time going and 2 bad experiences will not be going back.
