IL Mulino Reviews
Just the right amount of everything! Ambiance, garlic and wonderful, wonderful company! Simply the best Italian NYC has to offer! You MUST try the lobster dishes.Kimberly Angelone
This was the BEST italian restaurant I have EVER eaten in! The desert was to die for! I can never get tirimisu that tastes like it did there.
Simply the best Italian food in New York, but come prepared to pay for it.
I have been going to this restaurent since it opened. It has maintained its quality and the service is outstanding. Even with the recent addition of off site locations, Claudio has managed to keep the NY location as #1.
grate 5 stars
fantastic italian restaurant with melt in your mouth cusine never better
Arriving at on time at 8 pm full of eager anticipation: the maitre d' asked us to wait at the bar for 30 minutes for our table, which we accepted happily, thereafter till 9.10 we were `told just 2 minutes`then we left .We saw much food go past( looking unremarkable) and were unattracted by the piles of food ( gread rollls and strawberries) on display in the bar area brushed by rather too many backs and backsides for our taste . The kind of reputation this place has was belied by it's grubbiness ( We don't consider yellowed polystyrene ceiling tiles `chic`) , poor customer care and lack of hygiene seems ill deserved. We were pleased to go though the crowds left were happy to move up in the queue.
Il Mulino remains true to its trattoria roots, offering hearty portions of rustic Italian fare. Note that reservations are hard to get here, so it's best to plan in advance.

The best service. Love the huge hunks of parm that start the meal. Can't go wrong with any pasta or the lobster.

Wine is pretty expensive but f*ck it. Garlic bread, salami, cheese, it's a wrap. Ravioli with truffle sauce is heaven on earth. Veal parm: do it or forever hold your peace. Top 5 Italian restaurants.
by Dylan F.
Reservations a must. One of absolute favorite Italian restaurants in NYC. It can get a bit pricy but worth every penny.
My favorite Italian restaurant in the city, flawless execution of every dish. Veal is amazing and a standout.
by Mark G.
The sea bass is unbelievably delicious, its part of the specials. Literally best fish dish ive ever had
by Nayon Nacho
One of the oldest and finest Italian restaurants in the city. Simple pastas with traditional lamb or veal ragús are especially good differing notably from other restaurants.
by Summer K.
They serve a ton of great free appetizers at the beginning of the meal. Don't fill up too much!
by Nathan Saperia
What an experience. Completely spoiled from beginning to end with culinary delights, wrapped up with house made raisin infused grappa. Step into another time & feast.
by Elle Wagner
Abe Hiroki, chef of EN Japanese Brasserie, eats here on his nights off. He loves the Ravioli ai porcini.

Never fails - spectacular service - Ivo is the best! Mom's osso bucco certainly put a smile on her face! Success!

Also, what is a "captain's tip"?
by Sarah S.
The health inspector's visit effected everything- the waiter was nervous, the food was slow, and the dessert couldn't be changed, but still, DELICIOUS. very dark, if that's not your thing (not mine!)
by Sarah S.
Service is impeccable. Rack of lamb is divine, and the escargot has a delicious, spicy twist. Love this place.
by Amy K.
Thirsty for something, dare I say refined, in this collegiate hood? Head here for a fab glass of Montepulciano and spot-on service.

A very cozy cute place with a great atmosphere, but spaghetti vongole not good at all((
by Ms A.
By far my favorite Italian restaurant in NYC. Every meal that I've had here is superb. The service is phenomenal. rack of lamb is to die for. burrata will make u want to cry with happiness.
by Laura Ferguson
Chicken Parm is perfection! Definitely try the bruschetta! A+ Italian!!
One of the best places to want in NYC....
Possibly the best Italian in NYC. Recommend the sea bass and also if you need to do wine by the glass the Sangiovese is very drinkable.
by Susan F.
Noted as one of the best Italian restaurants in the city, this old-world eatery is doused in lace and white coat service. Be prepared for the whopping bill.

Charlie was our waiter. He was a wonderful server, a great humored guy who made us feel welcome! The Dolver Sole was fantastic, so sublime, so well prepared... Life changing.

Mushroom ravioli with truffle and veal scallopini - phenomenal
by Megha G.
Food and service is amazing here, I was impressed all around. If you're ordering shrimp and want something different from the menu, as for it to be cooked in lobster sauce, delicious!

Obsessed with the parmigiano reggiano cheese chunks
by Alison L.
One of the best restaurants for Italian in NYC, have never had a bad meal here. Any of the veal dishes are fantastic.

Come with an empty stomach and a full wallet

From the beginning: arrogant staff ,high prices and mediocre food...very dissapointed
by Anastasia D.
The attention from the staff makes us feel like the most important people in the room; from rattling off minute details about the food preparation to making smart comments about wine selections.
Get the Dover Sole. Pricey but incredible.
by J L.
High-end Italian, great pasta and veal parm
by Michael S.
Pace yourself. Delicious parmigiano reggiano cheese followed by a platoon of appetizers is a meal in its own right. Saltimbocca veal was great. Flourless chocolate cake ended the meal in heaven.
by Katie L.
Had my birthday dinner here, and I was blown away. Impeccable service. Truffled langostine risotto, hello lover!

#9 - IWalked NYC's Top 10 Italian Restaurants. Greenwich Village staple. Been voted the #1 Italian restaurant in NYC by Zagats for two decades. Portions are ginormous & have lots of garlic!
by IWalked Audio Tours
be prepared for a long wait for your table, however, the wait is worth it, awesome :)
by Richard C.
The Dover Sole was quite likely the most perfectly cooked fish I've ever had outside of Japan. You will also get almost an entire meal before you are handed the menus.
by Rev. H.
Il Mulino’s shining point is that the food is truly authentic. Known for its home made and best-in-town pasta, we went a different direction in ordering the double-cut veal chop and were delighted.

Get the mushroom porcini ravioli w/ truffle oil... to die for!
by Alfred C.
Great food, service and ambiance with lots of free starters. Try the Fettuccini Ragout and the Red Snapper. Very expensive.

and I disagree w Jeffrey too
by Carlo d.
I disagree with Robert who maybe does not know anything about Italian food...Il Mulino is not the best....maybe the worst!
by Carlo d.
The Best, whether its New York City, Long Island, or San Juan Puerto Rico, or Tokyo.
by Robert M. S.
Have the fruit platter at the end! Most amazing presentation ever!
by Elgin S.
Best Italian Restaurant in the World?
by jeffrey m.
Be careful ordering the porcini ravioli with truffles. $100 entree...
by Trevor S.
Order papardelle mulino, rack of lamb, osso bucco, uccelletti Alla fiorentino for amazing dishes. Ok it's all amazing.
by Trevor S.
Wanna reservation? Don't call, go to the restaurant and make one in person. You'll get ahead this way.
