Great Italian with Gluten Free options

Food and atmosphere was great, plus they had gluten free pasta which made the menu far more gluten-free friendly.

We made the mistake of thinking we would just stroll in and get a table. Mutu's was quite busy. Suggest consider making a reservation for dinner. We were flexible and enjoyed our meal at the bar. Great service. Great food.

We live in Durango, but don't go out that often, however, we had a friend/colleague in from out of town, and she was staying at The Rochester, so we went to Mutu's. It's been at least a year since we'd been, and wow were we disappointed. Service was really slow, waiting for our wine, for the promised bread, for the... More

My wife and I stumbled upon this place about 3 years ago when we were visiting the Durango area and we were very impressed by it. So much in fact that when my boss and I were in town recently I recommended that we eat dinner here one night. We started off with drinks (nice wine menu by the way)... More

Went to Mutu's on advice from the gentleman that checked us into our hotel. What great advice. My daughters were a little unsure because it wasn't Olive Garden, but they stepped out of their comfort zone and were glad they did. It was a weekend and they were very busy but we were waited on in very good time. The... More

After a long day on the road, we were looking for a nice, comfortable Italian meal and found exactly what we wanted at Mutu's. Very good chicken parmigiana (and we are from Brooklyn, where it was invented :-) ), nice comfortable atmosphere, terrific staff. Good value, too.

Enjoyed a wonderful meal with my kids and two other families. Everyone enjoyed their dishes. The waitress and manager were great and were very patient with us having so many kids with us.

Ask for Sarah as your server.... poise, style and a great sense of humor! The wine list was great and the food melted in my mouth.

A great spot to enjoy a great salad, pasta dishes, and seafood specials. We love their appetizers--especially the pizza eggroll concoctions. A comfortable bar area is a great spot for drinks and appetizers too.

We were indecisive about where to eat tonight. Glad we parked this close and departed from our regular eats. The service was great and attentive. The house Merlot was less than expected, but we finished the bottle.all entrees were fantastic. Well seasoned and breaded. The special. Seafood. Escobar was perfectly cooked with great notes if fresh mozzarella and fresh veggies... More
