It started with the bread. Really good and then they brought the accouterment for the bread, bursting with flavor and then the food, Pappardelle Pasta, Yellow tail carpaccio, and then the Veal Chop, 2" thick tasted so fresh. You can go in and just order whatever you want and they will make it for you, and they will make it great. They brought complimentary things every now and then. These guys know how to take care of people. Go there to have the experience not just a meal.

I went with my son, who"s young enough not to have a recollection of Yankee world series victories, and members of my family, whom I have celebrated with for years!! We went to the parade for # 27!! I had read Bobby Murcer's Yankee for Life biography, and knew that this was his favorite place in the city. Murcer said he was a reluctant New Yorker, not playing baseball, but the size of the city! I have had a dining experience at Il Mulino in the back of my head every since I read the book. It seemed fitting to end the parade with my son and relatives in the presence of ghosts of Yankees past...and in only the Yankee way..Il Mulino did not disappoint. The service was a bit overzealous but always attentive. The lunch was phenomenal and the leftovers were even better! I had a super tuscan house that was out of this world.....and how can you go wrong imagining walking in the footsteps of yankee pinstripes? The prices aren't for the faint of heart. It's a special place in that regard. In my humble culinary opinion, worth it!! Ask for the table for 5 in the back corner...and imagine Bobby!

Pros: feels exclusive

Cons: everything else

Over the last 15 years i use to frequent Il Mulino often. The food was extremely good years ago, but since its been sold a 2 years ago its been a steady decline. I don't mind paying for enjoyable dinning experiences, but the last visit to this restaurant was my last. The food was over salted, greasy, overcooked and frankly offensive. Out of the 6 people at our table, (who are all italian), not one plate was finished, no one ate any of the pasta. The main courses were forgettable as well.

This resturant is nothing more than tourist trap at this point. The bill for 6 people, with 2 bottles of wine was $2600 and for that amount of money it better be higher quality. If your looking for good Italian food in NYC go to Babbo, Del Posto, Scalini Fedili, or Al Di Ala and I promiss you it will be ten times better than Il Mulino.

Pros: Private Line for reservations

Cons: Overpriced, Crammed, terrible food

I dined Il Mulino on my birthday with my boyfriend on a Friday evening. We live in Manhattan and eat out at least twice a week. We were so disappointed with both the service and the food at Il Mulino and will not return.

First, we had reservation for 8:30pm and were on time. The reservation was booked 3 weeks prior and w/ the name of a friend, a frequent customer.

While waiting for the table, there was very little space to stand as there were many others in the same boat and a ton of giants plants randomly placed in the entry room so that people have fewer places to stand. My boyfriend wanted to leave after 1/2 hour but I insisted on staying--we got seated at 9:40.

Our waiter was more interested in watched the people come in than us. He shouted out the specials while looking at people walking in. I was expecting more personal interaction with customers.

We ordered 1 Caesar salad to share but when we got the bill, they changed us for 2. We told the waiter and he said no, we had asked for 2. He didn't change the check and we were shocked that he told us that we were wrong.

I decided on one of the specials while my boyfriend decided on the veal from the menu instead of the veal special. When the wrong one arrived (which by the way, was much more expensive), we told the waiter and he responded, "Trust me, you'll like it better." He didn't offer to exchange it and we ended up getting charged for the $60 veal special--plus, the veal wasn't anything special.

We decided we had enough. The maitre d' then came over and was very apologetic for the 1hr wait time--he realized that we had made reservations using our friend?s name, one of his regular customers. They ended up giving us a free dessert so after everything, we decided not to make a big fuss about the check.

Overall, it was so bad that it was funny. For NYC, there are a ton of restaurants that are expensive, amazing, and provide good service. Il Mulino did none of that.

Pros: Name recognition, cool area

Cons: Service, food, ambiance, all things important

If you're looking for the best Italian food in NYC... this is definitely it... and it may very well have been some of the best food I've ever had. The service is excellent and you have to make sure you come hungry because you will be wined and dined before you even order an appetizer. The restaurant has a cozy, romantic ambiance to it and is located in the West Village. Although it is expensive, you will walk away feeling like royalty.

my husband and i recently ate at Il Mulino and had an amazing Italian dining experience!! I ordered the Spezzatino di Pollo alla Romano, which was sensational, and my husband ordered the red snapper and didnt leave one bite on his plate. For appetizers, we ordered the caprese, or buffalo mozzarella, and we shared a rigatoni dish., Needless to say, we stuffed ourselves, but the food was so amazing that we felt as if we should!!! We couldnt even make it out for drinks in this fabulous Greenwich Village neighborhood because we were so full!! We were satisfied enough with our fine dining experience, though. Everything was perfect---the food, teh atmosphere, and the service!! I highly recommend Il Mulino!

This is the perfect example of a tourist trap. The masses follow the advice of the Zagat guide in their travel bag. I will keep it short and sweet...long wait...rude staff....tough vealchop. I will never return. Try Babbo or Scalinatella if your looking for a class act.

Not what it once was. Once family owned and operated, now owned by a corporate group (look at their locations, worldwide) Definitely dine here if you wish to pay ridiculously high prices for usual Italian fare. I grew up in the restaurant biz, cook, and frequent all of NY's top rated restaurants. I've had better Italian food in neighborhood trattorias at a mere fraction of the price. If you want to impress people by telling them you went to Il Mulino, that's fine, status comes at a high price. Anyone who knows Italian food and value won't be impressed or fooled.

Two of us in our party arrived 30 minutes prior to our reservation and had a drink a the bar while we waited for the other two in our party. They arrived fifteen minutes before our reservation. 50 minutes after our reservation we still hadn't been seated and any time we asked we were ignored or were rudely told they would get to us. Three tables that arrived well after us were all seated and we still remained waiting without a tale. Someone in our party went and asked what was going on and we were told that several tables had shown up to their reservation 30 - 40 minutes late and so they were behind. After an hour of waiting, being ignored and rude treatment by the staff we left.

I called Fiamma Osteria while walking out and asked if they could acomidate a table of four in 10 minutes and they said sure. We showed up and were seated immediately and had one of teh best meals I've ever had. The tasting menu was excellent and I was so full I couldn't even finish my fourth course.

Don't waste your time with Il Mulino. The service is so poor and the experience is so frustrating, I don't think the best food in the world could make up for it.

I went to Il Mulino once with six other family members. One of us was a regular, so a reserved table was miraculously awaiting our arrival. We sat in the middle of an extremely crowded dining room, the state of which served as testimony that this is one of New York's most famous eateries. The waitstaff here wait on their charges hand and foot, and there were probably about five tuxedoed men taking care of our party. We started the dinner with appetizers: a waiter came around with a monstrous block of aromatic cheese, cutting off pieces for each of us. The garlic bread was soaked in rich butter and oil and tasted as though an entire clove of garlic was infused into every piece! Delicious seafood-laden hors d'oeuvres are an excellent choice as well. For the main course I had the veal shank. No side dish was needed to accompany this enormous and tender roast, and I was by far the last at the table to finish my meal. If you don't wish to miss dessert, order smaller portioned dishes, for one does not leave here feeling skimped. The desserts were very rich and savory. Creamy cappuccinos were served alongside these after dinner treats. To top it all off, a digestivo of potent grappa was doled out of a giant brass cauldron. The experience I had at Il Mulino was certainly one that left me feeling as though I were a member of one of the top echelons in New York society. I wholeheartedly recommend it, so long as one can afford the mortgage-sized bill.

Last Saturday night I visited Il Mulino with a group of friends. I had been looking forward to going for quite some time as reservations are difficult to come by and I had heard great things about the restaurant. When we walked in it was easy to see that the Saturday night crowd does NOT live in NYC. Everyone in the place was an out-of-towner looking for a NYC experience. That was a bit of a downer. I knew we would have to wait and proceeded to get a drink at the bar. Mission unaccomplished. The bar area is sooo small and the bartenders were unattentive that no one in my party could get a drink. Once we were seated the food began to arrive. The antipasti is outstanding. The cheese, salamis, and particularily the mushroom were to die for. I had heard great things about the mushroom ravioli so I ordered that as well as the veal milanese. The ravioli is delicious but very oily and the veal was okay. Nothing great. The desserts were all very good but nothing to write home about.

Everything about this place is great- not pretentious, just well-made dishes and good service. The last time I went I enjoyed the steak although I usually get the spaghetti with clams. Such a treat.

at Il Mulino. Tables are coveted as this small, intimate Italian restaurant. The food and wine are aplenty here. Once seated, four waiters come by with delicious complimentary dishes like a cold zucchini appetizer, eggplant, appetizer in addition to your standard garlic bread sticks to start. The portions are HUGE and I do mean huge, with one portion serving enough for two so don't snack before you go. Be sure to order some wine as they have a huge selection. Be sure to try the mushroom ravioli, it's awesome. All the entrees are good. I didn't even get to dessert. I definite must try.

This is one of those places where people that don?t know the italian ?cucina? and have never been to Italy think: it's good food... Really: it's NOT?
They kept us waiting for more than half an hour in a dark crowded and unpleasant area and we booked the table (after 50 phone calls!)
You can not possibly read the menu, you can not see the prices and they start serving you in incredibly small tables, all sorts of oily ?small starters? that are just to prize your eyes but don?t do any good.
The place is small, the seats uncomfortable and various unprepared waiters serve you like at a cheap pizzeria place. Don?t mention the wine: the list is nice but it seems that they just want you to drink as much as possible.
The room is so crowded that they couldn?t even place the bread and the pasta is too worked: they forgot that the italian motto is KEEP IT SIMPLE and they do the contrary.
Dessert are nice but the Grappa is not original italian (and the price is ridiculusly high for the poor quality of the food and the unprofessional service).
No invoice, you can not get one: NEVER again I felt cheated.

I'm an italian chef and some american friends that has never been to Italy suggested me the place. Bad: very bad! You try to call to book and there is no way that they pick up the phone, I went in person to book, they have been unpolite and worse the dinner was incredibly expensive and the food was bad. They serve the wine pouring it like it's water, the food is greasy and not well made and too too expensive. This is the place for americans that believe italian food is like that but seriously don't go there!
I asked and invoice and they couldn't even give me one, they promised to fax one to me and they did not.. Just forget the place: it's joke (a too too expensive joke!)... And I'm a chef...

If you are ever visiting in Puerto Rico, make sure you visit Il Mulino at the Ritz Carlton. The food was so amazing that it transports you back to New York. It is very romantic, but it can also be a great place to spend with friends, since you're almost inside of the casino. Just make sure that you make a reservation ahead of time... and confirm it the day before just in case it gets lost in space.

Cons: The restaurant is not open on Sundays

The service here was wonderful. Very friendly staff. Appetizers and even the house appetizers were abundant. I had 3 different pastas, the fish, mussles, some sort of rice with lobster, lamb, and the list just goes on. We ordered so much food! We even had a sample plate of their desserts. Food was delicious!

Although the appetizers supplied by the restaurant were outstanding, generally speaking I was disappointed with the food. The pastas were tasty, but not outstanding. If I am going to pay that much for food, I expect to have my socks knocked off (as I have when dining (everytime) at Nobu. The bartender was excellent. I felt that we were rushed at the table when almost done dining (which I wasn't). I don't think we'll be back.

They kept us waiting for more than an hour WITH a reservation and WITHOUT an apology. Admittedly, they fed us some bread while we waited, but that's not an excuse. I'm a vegetarian, and after specifically asking for a vegetarian entree, they gave me an entree that contained seafood. Again, no apology - one of our several waiters simply blamed the others. When they brought grappa for the table, one waiter even commented sarcastically that he was pretty sure *this* was vegetarian...

The food overall ranged from decent to quite tasty, but the service was condescending and indifferent... Also, the tables were stuffed together and the place was cramped. This made the wait especially unpleasant. Avoid Il Mulino.

The food was to die for and the service was wonderful. The decor is alright, their food portions is more than enough for two, however this place costs a pretty penny. A dinner for two with a bottle of wine would probably cost you close to $300!

The food was to die for and the service was wonderful. The decor is alright, their food portions is more than enough for two, however this place costs a pretty penny. A dinner for two with a bottle of wine would probably cost you close to $300!

Pros: food, service

Cons: crowded, cost

.

Take it from a regular - It simply is not what it used to be!
In the past it was outrageously expensive but great; a special occasion place to splurge. Now days, it is a dated overpriced shadow of its yonder years. The food is mediocre at best. The pasta is bland and you can get better at your grocery store. Their sauces are dissapointing. The canneloni, once famous, now is simply terrible. Their fish is OK as well as the meat entrees but not at their prices, you leave with the feeling someone just picked your pocket. If you plan on drinking a decent wine think $150 minimum for wines other restaurants sell for less. If you want a good wine, bring a letter of credit. Their decanting is awfull; they simply gush it into a glass pitcher, sediment and all. You will fare better at any Little Italy Restaurant or Mid-Town establishment.
As for me and my friends, they lost some very good clients.

my bf & i came expecting to wait at least an hour (w/reservation), so we were pleasantly surprised to be seated 40 minutes after arrival. once seated, we were served a plethora of antipasti/breads (all tasty, with an especially good spicy crispy zucchini bread). as appetizers, we ordered the zucchini flowers (rich & savory) & escargot-topped mushroom caps (mediocre). we split the porcini ravioli for the 2nd course. it was the best ravioli ever plump, al dente, stuffed with mushrooms and drowned in a truffle cream sauce. for the main course, i ordered the snapper (a huge fish in a tomato-based sauce) and he had the rack of lamb. both were good, though not extraordinary. though stuffed, we shared the mixed berries in zabaione (perfect). it was an expensive meal ($250, no alcohol), so im not sure that its worth a return trip, but i had an awesome time.

This is my favorite restuarant in nyc. The service can be a little chaotic at times, but the "experience" is unmatched. Go when you have time. Once seated, there is a continuous flow of antipasti, and wine, menus are not even handed to you for 20 minutes, giving plenty of time to sample. We sat for 4 hours. The food is wonderful, and it keeps coming and coming. Portions are huge, you'll need to take home the leftovers. I did this last night, and there were no funny looks or arrogant sneers. In fact, I may have gotten funny looks if I tried to eat my whole meal. Dining at Il Mulino is not just a meal, it is indeed an experience.

It's true...you might have made a reservation, but you will end up waiting for about an hour anyway, so hopefully you'll get a seat at the bar and won't have to stand around. I've been here twice and had to wait an hour each time. Still, after all the fuss, the food makes you forget about the wait. The food is incredible here...hands down, the best Italian food in the city. Not to mention, my table was next to John Ridder and Joyce DeWitt's table ...always nice to sit next to a star in a small restaurant.

Although it says make a reservation and confirm, it's only a mere formality. When you get to the restaurant be prepared to wait. The maitre'd was quite rude and didn't acknowledge our presence. I had a reservation for 8:30 and didn't get seated until 9:30. Once seated the food was excellent - the porcini mushrroms and the lamb were superb. If you plan on going to Il Mulino grab a snack before you go because you will be waiting.

Although the food was great, it wasn't worth the headache. We waited almost two hours for a table (and we had a reservation), they screwed up our bill twice, and they couldn't have cared less. If you're willing to be treated like crap for the opportunity to hand over a few hundred bucks, more power to you. My advice - find a great neighborhood Italian spot, order twice as much to drink as you would at Il Mulino for half the price, and laugh all the way home at the poor suckers still waiting to be seated.

I came there with my boyfriend on Tues and had a great time. The food was the best Italian food I have ever had and it was well worth the price. The staff was great friendly and funny. Make sure that you save space to eat you will want to try everything. I cant wait to go there again.

Our group of four dined at Il Mulino and had a wonderful experience. We did not have to wait at all for our table. Service was amazing - all kinds of wonderful (free) food to start. Quite small interior, however, we sat at a table and it felt quite private. Menu is a bit difficult to decipher, but the waiters are extremely helpful and will answer any question. We each had an appetizer, pasta dish, entree and desert as well as a few moderately priced bottles of wine ($50 range) each a recommendation - quite good - I recommend the Fettucini Al Fredo as a pasta dish - melted in my mouth. Dined for about 4 hours - This place is not cheap (around $800 for the four of us including the wine and four courses) so dine on an expense account and an empty stomach!

I used to live in Italy for three years, and i know what is real true Italian food is.
I am so glad that i found this place. They have wonderful service, every waiters are
very friendly and helpful. The wine lists are great, and the Food is amazing!!
The reservation is pretty hard to get, but try to call them around 10am, and you could
probably get a reservation within 2-3 weeks. I also visit Il mulino in Las vegas. It was another amazing night as well. Anybody looking for true Italian food? Il mulino won't disspoint you!!!

I go here any time I have a special occasion, it is the most amazing dining experience. The menu is confusing but just tell them what you want and they will make it and believe me, the flavors are the most brilliant and savory that I have ever tasted. A true italian gem!

The horrible service ruined the whole night for us. We felt pressured and uncomfortable. When we sat down, they kept pressuring us to order wine despite our not wanting to. Waiters kept whispering to each other and repeatedly coming over to suggest that we order wine. There were many rude displays throughout the night. Five staff members stared at us throughout the meal. The portions were large so we asked to take some food home, in separate bags. It was brought in the same bag. I asked the captain to bring the food in separate bags and he loudly said, Oh, I guess you are not getting lucky tonight. We had strawberries for desert ($20 for six berries and dipping sauce.) The food was a bit better than average overall, but not worth the price, and the horrible service will ensure that I will never return to this restaurant.

First it was impossible to get a reservation. Their phone line was eternally "busy." Then we waited 2 hours for our table with a reservation. The place was more crowded than the 4, 5 train on a snow day during rush hour. The food was OK but you can certainly expect to be seated promptly at other restaurants with similar food and ambience in New York. There is no way I will come back!

PS if you must go, go during the week or in summer where you might get better service.

Our office Holiday Part was an absolute bust at this old-school rip-off over-rated establishment. The waiter are skilled at switching guests to high priced options of mediocre unimaginative food. It's time for people to take the sun glasses off and see this has been for what it is!

My boyfriend and I took my parents there for Hanukkah and we had the most amazing time. Unfortunately we had to wait for our table with a reservation, but they gave us free appetizers at the bar, and a glass of wine with apologies. The staff, the food, incredible!!! I have been there with my boyfriend before, and we had the same exact experience. This has become my favorite restaurant treat! SO WORTH IT!!!

Went last night with friends, while the service and ambiance were great the food was not. In fact it was barely average for a restaurant of that caliber. And, if you consider the price of the entrees ($55) it was below average. I had a veal chop that, while large, was extremely bland. We ordered salads and the ceaser tasted like it had bottled dressing and the chopped salad didn't taste good at all. I'm glad I went but I won't ever go back. There is outstanding italian food at half the price all over this city.

one of the best, if not the best italian resaurant i've ever been too. a suggestion for those who wait in line. do lunch! show up early! yes it's high dollar but it's worth it. if you plan to be in the city, i suggest you try this one.

DO NOT try the new Manhasset location. You will have to wait one hour with a reservation and the maitre'd actually had the audacity to say "We can do whatever we want, Long Island people have no where else to go." Stick to the city restaurant if you want to wait an hour for your reservation!

I went to Il Mulino for the first time last night and yes we had to wait 45 min for our table and I made the reservation two months ago. The atmosphere is nothing special and they sure do pack people in. The food is good, but nothing extraordinary. I had spaghetti bolognese and caprese salad to start and both were good, but very very salty!! The prices are over the top and for what? If you want a similar experience, but much better food, service and ambiance go to Scalinatella. This place is definitely somewhere I do not need to go again.

There are many restaurants in NYC that you expect to wait for a table. River Cafe, Daniel, Le Bernardin and Union Square Cafe would not be in that list. So why does Il Mulino charge the same prices and think that it is fine to keep you hanging on for 2 hours for a reservation. I have to eat out a lot for work and have been to most of the top restaurants in the major cities in the US - the Maitre d' at Il Mulino is the worst I have come across. Arrogant, rude, clueless - not worth the effort. Not so much as an apology was offered by the ignoramous for keeping my friends and me waiting until midnight on Friday (and up to that point I had been very polite) - at which time we left with out paying our bar tab never to return.

The service was WONDERFUL!!! The personality of the servers (there were probably 4 just for us) was superb!!!! They treated us like we were the only folks in the restaurant----and I like that. My mother, sister and I were in NYC for a long weekend and this place was HIGHLY recommended. It was worth every dime! We got pictures with our "waiter" or whatever he was called.

The size of our disappointment at formerly dependable Il Moulino was only exceeded by the size of the check. They crammed 8 of us into a tiny corner meant for 6 and then made sure to bump our heads with their unapologetic elbows at least every 4 minutes. Little Italy-style hambone performances by the waiters (actually saying "fugettaboutit" 4 times during specials) was embarassing and did nothing to hide the fact of of being charged for 4 bottles of wine when we only ordered 3. Twenty dollar desserts? They're worth $12. And worst of all, even the still-high quality of most dishes can't balance the sad clientele, which was an inordinate number of rude, loud, aggressive tri-state imports, aspiring to achieve low-class Sopranos schmaltz, and failing even at that. It's a good thing we've got Botino, Il Postino, and the Battali group, for Il Moulino is no more.
