Although this place is really small, it kind of adds to its family atmosphere. The staff really does treat you like royalty. I echo the sentiments about watching yourself on the free appetizers, because they will surely fill you up. Definitely get the pesto gnocci - excellent! My advice - don't eat for the whole day - your stomach will need the room!

If you don't like this place, you're crazy. You get treated like royalty and the food is delicious. It may be expensive but it's worth the experience. You should go here for a special occasion or when you're really hungry. If you like this, try il giglio.

Il Mulino is completely overrated! The food is ok, not even good. The service is mediocre. We waited for 40 minutes even though we had a reservation. The portions are huge! An order of lamb chops came with eight chops! And it was very gamey and lacked taste. It's obviously family style. However, the waiter never told us so. If you want a real fine dining italian experience, go elsewhere.

Having experienced some of the finest restaurants in NY, I was looking forward to what I thought would be the crown jewel of Italian food. What I experienced was a tiny little crowded box of a restaurant with high prices and pedestrian food. The check for the two of us with tax and tip was $250 and what we had was a glass of Pinot Grigio for $14 each and when I asked the waiter the brand I was informed it was Cavit which sells for $5.99 a bottle. We each had an appetizer, with my being a special with no price being offerred and it was $45, and for dessert I had a tartufo and my wife tiramisu with each being $19. When I questioned the waiter about the check he coldly replied that's our price. If by chance you happen to eat here, share an appetizer and main course and utilize the complimentary appetizers as way of minimizing the check. Also ask what the price of the specials are. My best advice is don't here there are many better Italian restauants for a fraction of the cost.

The food was good, even thought it seemed like everything was drenched in garlic and olive oil. Problem: Expect seriously cramped tables, a staff that rushes you and overpriced entrees. I won't go back.

The food is amazing. Be careful though they load you up on bread and antipasta before you even place yout order, must save room for the glorious pasta dishes.

From the moment you sit at your table the food starts arriving, chunks of parmesan cheese, zucchini in oil with hot pepper, mussels, etc.... and you haven't even looked at your menu! Excellent bread....good Italian food, no pretenses. Tables are NYC tight, but the food is worth it. The spaghetti pomodoro is to die for! Bring your appetite and enjoy the experience.
