This place hit a home run with me. The menu options were varied, but not overwhelming. The two meals I tried were fabulous. The pasta was perfect and the mussels were cooked to perfection. The ambiance and decor are very nice. The wine list has some great options that are not marked up too much. I would eat here every... More

We were looking for a nice Italian restaurant in Durango and found Mutu's. Off the main drag by a blocks walk up a hill. Nice out door patio. We were greeted and seated immediately. Our server arrived and seemed put off when our initial request for for water only. The dining room is very neat and clean, no sense of... More

Our hotel had a mixer, sampling food from the restaurant. If not for that, we would not have known the place existed. On a little side road off the main tourist area of Durango. The food was delicious and service good. Nice decor.

Mutu's is the perfect happy hour restaurant. I love the couches and the bar. The appetizers are fantastic. There is a little outside patio too.

Great ambience, bar, food and servers. What else can you ask for? That was the conclusion my friend and I arrived at after our first of 3 visits to this gem. The food is conceived and its preparation is supervised by the owner/chef who takes his profession seriously. I'm from the NYC area and my friend is from Chicago and... More

The service was great. The mahi was great. The noodles came out dry and tasteless - no sauce, no seasoning, so I asked for a ladle of any sauce. They charged $2. I would have been fine paying more for the dish to start with, but when they send it out tasteless and then charge extra for something that should... More

We enjoyed sitting out on the patio as their was little road noise one block off the main street. We thoroughly enjoyed the salmon. The staff was very efficient and friendly. Put this restaurant on your "to do" list.

Had a nice plate of angel hair pasta with prosciutto and tomatoes. the pasta was perfect and the simple sauce was quite tasty. I chose the smaller of the two caesar salads on the menu and it was plenty to go along with my dinner. The portions were adequate without being obscene. My only concern was that it appeared to...

Jean and I had a very pleasant dinner here early friday evening. It was obvious that NOTHING in this place comes out of a can - it was just too fresh tasting! Besides the usual Italian dishes like eggplant parmesan, there were several unique creations on the menu as well. The service was excellent and everything tasted WONDERFUL!
