Its located at the knickenbocker hotel. Reservations, recommended. The service was top notch, they were very tentative and helpful. The food was very creative and delicious. There are several vegatarian options. I had the beet salad, which sounded odd, but was one of the best starters i ever had. I then had the butternut ravioli in brown butter sauce for... More

Not the absolute best I ever had , but good.... More

We passed by that restaurant many times while taking a stroll and then we decided to try it even though there wasn't too much buzz about it. And we loved it, both for late light dinner and brunch! The variety of dishes is great, everything tasted delicious and service was very friendly. The only thing I would suggest - patio... More

We had a group of 5 discriminating Californians looking for a dinner meal and stumbled on this restaurant through it's high ranking on Tripadvisor. This is a high class restaurant in a neighborhood environment. It has the charm and sophistication of a San Francisco restaurant. Wine selection was excellent and reasonably priced. Everyone's meal was great. My lasagna was the... More

I can't say enough about this restaurant! This is by far my favorite place to eat. We go here with our family a lot and every time I try something new, and every time I love it. The bread and garlic appetizer is my favorite for dinner. Also, if you get the chance, try Il Mito for breakfast. The homemade... More

Il Mito was the first restaurant on North Avenue, in a strip that is quickly becoming restaurant row. It is, without a doubt, still one of my favorite places to go for a nice dinner. Although it's better for couples or groups of friends, our kids love going there because they get a cup full of crayons and can color... More

Il Mito is my favorite restaurant, period. Love the menu (varied and hearty), love the service (Michael and his staff make a point of being warm and welcoming), and love the decor. If you ever get the chance, the wine and beer tastings are the best! You learn so much while filling up on the best cuisine.

Met some colleagues for dinner, choosing this restaurant based on location and the previous reviews. Waiter sat us at our table and then disappeared. When we did order he offered very little in terms of recommendations. I started with the pea soup which was very good and followed it with the seafood ravioli which was really a bit of a... More

Went for a "presentation" dinner with a group of friends. Six courses of small portions prepared by Chef Michael in an interactive manner. The chef was extremely personable and entertaining. The food was all exceptional and the cost per person was surprisintgy reasonable. I'm hoping to go back for a regular restaurant meal there soon.
