Delicious rendezvous

Great seating on second floor balcony. Food was very good I had the pork tenderloin risotto asparagus special. Brushetta was good as well.

The antipasto plate was wonderful. The sausage lasagna was very good, but I ordered a side of marinara to put on it. Their marinara is chunky and liquid rather than smooth or saucy. Service was not great. Never refilled bread. Asked us if we wanted wine. When we said no, our server left us with just water. Found out at... More

We have been to Mutu's a couple of times and each just as impressionable on us. The hostess was super nice and friendly, our server (Ryan I believe) was also amazing. Our needs were never missed and he always had a smile on his face. The food was amazing! will come again and again.

Stopped on by for some lasagna. Got their 4 cheese with sausage deep dish entree and it was great. Very generous portion. Good choices on the menu. Was there on a Thursday and it was fairly busy. Friendly staff. Seated right away and served quickly. Didn't do drinks so can't comment on that. Nice place for a date or just... More

We had a long day on the train to Silverton and back and needed a good, relaxing meal with some good drinks. We got that at Mutu's. We ate on the patio and it was such a pleasant ambiance. The waitress was really good and lots of fun. I would go there again in a minute.

Not only does this place have fantastic food, wine and cocktails, but we had the sweetest waitress ever--Lauren!! she made our group of 8 feel totally comfortable and well served. The lemongrass martini made into a tall cocktail was fantastic. All the food was wonderful!!

The food at Mutu's is amazing. The food was so good that my husband and I return a second time during our long weekend stay in Durango. The service was attentive in the beginning but then lacking afterwards. Our waitress never checked to see how our food was after it was delivered. This was the case during both visits. While...

The food was really good! We went on a busier Saturday night, and service was a little slow, but they made up for it with a free dessert (apple tart- to DIE for). Their bartender also made me a PERFECT dry, martini with a twist. Food was different, but really tasty - a little offbeat from 'normal' Italian which makes... More

We try to stop here when we are in Durango and have not been disappointed. Despite it being Memorial Day weekend, we were greeted and seated promptly. Good menu choices including some gluten free options. We had the chicken tortellini and the eggplant parmesan and both were very good. Portions were generous. Server, Lauren, was very good--very personable and attentive... More
