Food is excellent and quantity is good. We were there while visiting Durango and went on an evening. The food mignt be a little pricey for some. The time that we were there was busy and the waitress was getting a little overwhelmed.

We were so tired after our first day of skiing at Purgatory that neither of us had the energy to walk one block onto Main Ave to any restaurant. Luckily, Mutu's is next door to The Leland house where we were staying. We initially were seated at a table when my husband discovered the last minutes of UNC vs Louisville... More

After tax and tip, I paid $12 for a caprese salad with inedible mealy tomatoes. Hard to believe any chef or cook would allow that to leave the kitchen.

My husband and I ordered the sea bass. It was absolutely mouth watering. The chicken skewers were yummy. Most of all, our server was kind, attentive, and professional. When we are back in Durango, we will visit again.

After a long day drive with lots of detours due to road closures we were looking for a nice sit-down restaurant. We happened upon this one and didn't have a long wait. Service was quick with nice staff. Four of my family ordered a Tomato Basil Bisque but said this was the best part of their meal. My son ordered... More

We went to Mutu's with my B-I-L and niece for a late diner. The staff was very warm, the atmosphere was intimate, and the food was delicious. The sausage lasagna had just the right amount spice without being overpowering. Pasta dishes were all cooked al dante and complemented by the sauces vs. drowned in the sauces. We will definitely be... More

Fantastic food! We got the chicken parm and stuffed shells and it blew our mind! Waiter was phenomenal! Asked for a military discount and got a free dessert instead which was even better.

Our waitress was extremely good and no one seemed to mind we walked in 20 minutes before the kitchen closed (We hate to do that). The food was really good as well. I got veal and my wife got beef medallions. Both were very good. The cocktails were good as well. If you are feeling Italian, this is the pace... More

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.

Thank Ellen S
