My husband and I went to Mutu's Italian Kitchen to celebrate both a birthday and an anniversary so needless to say we were expecting a lovely experience. From the moment we walked in the experience was wonderful. Our waitress was very pleasant, attentive, and prompt with our services. The food was excellent and worth putting on our list of restaurants... More

Our table of for had a nice variety and everything was excellent: lasagna with sausage, osso buco, and one of the night's specials, a pork loin stuffed with crab. We also had some of the best calamari appetizers I have ever had, and a shrimp oreganata that was wonderful too. The calamari was thick, tender and juicy and the breading... More

I decided to take my wife to Mutu's for her Birthday Dinner. We had a fine waiter by the name of Aaron. He was fast, knowledgable on the menu and wines, we had a great night with fantastic food! Great desert we had the chocolate brownie! Fantastic night don't pass them by!

Went to Mutu's the last night of my trip to Colorado to visit my boyfriend so he took me out to dinner and I was not expecting such a beautiful place to eat. I love Italian food too so this was perfect!! The table was a little small but the spaghetti I ordered was very delicious. Even had a lot... More

We tried this place our last night in Durango since it looked nice and was almost directly across from our hotel, the Leland house. We had the Osso Bucco and left it. The service was good and the atmosphere very nice but the food was not good.

Another one of our favorites when we visit Durango. Atmosphere is very nice and has a relaxed feel. There is some limited seating outside, which is nice. Good variety of choices on the menu. Had the Pasta Pescatore and the Eggplant Parmesan and they were both delicious. Very generous amount of food, so you did not leave hungry. Service was... More

We basically stumbled onto Mutu's and it was great. We had an early light dinner there that was delicious. The Tuscan chicken skewers were unique and perfectly seasoned. the candied walnut salad wad a delight as well. Our server, Aaron was very attentive and helpful. A great find!

It is a place we come back to every time in Durango. I look forward to the calamari, raviolis & fine wine. The food is great & staff friendly & helpful. Patio is relaxing with a carefree atmosphere.

We tried to get into another restaurant that was totally booked, so maybe I didn't have a high expectation here. For drinks, we started with the Hendricks cooler. Service was a bit slow, for a place that wasn't busy. Bread arrived with some sort of spread that didn't have that much flavor. The veal porcini, however, was good, and a... More

Durango has great restaurants. Being a tourist destination sometimes the locals get weary of paying tourist prices. The food here has never disappointed. Pasta, veal and fish are their specialties. The atmosphere is nice...a little noisy. Service is above average.
