Food was good

Usually you get salad with a pasta order but not here. You do get bread however. Service was okay. Prices were on an average of most Italian restaurants.

I had been craving linguini with white clam sauce. Mutu's was suggested to us so we went. I was not disappointed. The sauce was tasty, the clams delicious. Service - good, fast and pleasant. Atmosphere - nice and authentic. Portions large enough to take some home for later. Mutu's is a good meal for a good price. I would return.

My girl and I started at Guido's Italian restaurant earlier in the day (it was the brew fest in Durango) We ended up at Mutu's later in the evening, when most times it's hard if not impossible to get a good table without a wait, but we were seated promptly and the food was excellent, for the price.

Best Osso Bucco I've ever had. Great selection of Italian wines. Happy hour is awesome with 1/2 price apps and cocktail specials 4-6. The atmosphere is relaxing with indoor and outdoor dining choices. The music is always tasteful and compliments the mood of casual-elegant dinning.

I have a dietary restriction. (LCHF) They made a few modifications to one of their specials. It was absolutely the best Italian dish I have ever had. Service was great too. Looking forward to my next visit.

Supposedly the best Italian restaurant in Durango. Eggplant was listed on menu as being light layers. It was served as two thick slabs. Nice staff but I guess they don't really get Italian out west.

We were in the mood for some Italian food and Mutu's was recommended. Although we did not have reservations, we were seated immediately. The restaurant was full with many large groups, but our waitress handled everything beautifully. We were not kept waiting for our food which was good, received hot and tasty.

Thank Rockymundo
