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

Durango is lacking when it comes to Italian dining. Mutus can probably satisfy your needs if you are looking for Italian. They have outside dining in the summer months which is quite charming. Inside there is a dining area, and also a nice sized bar area. The restaurant can accommodate small groups and pretty large groups. I order the chicken... More

I visit Durango about four times a year and Mutu's Italian Kitchen is a must every time I visit this fine town. In my opinion it is the best Italian Restaurant in Durango and the nearbye area. The service is friendly and prices reasonable for the quality of the food. Definitely a stop for anyone visiting the Durango area.

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
