With indoor dining capacity limitations in place, it felt a little empty, but staff was friendly and efficient, and the food was good and served hot. Variety on the menu was welcome, and drinks were reasonably priced. Good location close to downtown.

Service was good but the Cheese curd appetizer was cold and not even warm. Ordered the eggplant Parmesan and I couldn’t eat it. The eggplant was tough and chewy and again both it and pasta it came with was barely warm. Menu looked great but...the outcome did not meet expectation nor the price. Shane - it has a lovely ambiance.More

We went to Mutu's after a day on the Jeep trails. It was an excellent choice. This was our best meal in Durango. We sat outside on a lovely early fall evening. I had the lasagna and my girlfriend had the gnocchi. Both were excellent....The service was wonderful. Ryan was our waiter and he was the best. He stayed close but did not hover over us. This should be one of your choices for an excellent meal in Durango.More

Too many Italian restaurants define "Italian" as "garlicky," but few overdo it as much as Mutu's. The aroma can be smelled for blocks, and the heavy garlic quotient just about obscures the taste of the dish itself. Both my wife's bruschetta and my day's special...risotto were smothered in the stuff, despite an admonition to "go light." Which brings us to the service aspect. Even cutting some slack for covid-induced staff shortages, service was inexcusably bad -- inattentive to the point of being rude. With so many dining options still available in Durango, we won't be back.More

We ate at Mutu's 2 of our 3 nights in Durango. It is described as Italian and there are certainly Italian items but also much more. I had a risotto special one night with beef and shrimp and seabass the second night which was the...Sunday special. Both excellent. My spouse also enjoyed the food. It was very warm both nights and there were tables available outside which made it very pleasant. Patio is decorated beautifully with party lights adding to the festive atmosphere. Prices VERY reasonable considering the quality. Covid-19 rules were followed by all. If in Durango again (we hope) we will return.More

My husband and sister and I had dinner on their outdoor patio. Cara was our server and she was fabulous as was the food. Highly recommend!

To much money for little to no product. We as will as our friends, family and acquaintances will not be returning. $77 for “portioned pasta” clearly was not portioned correctly.

If you want below average Italian food , in a nice location, this is the place. Perhaps this reviewer is spoiled by having access to phenomenal food 24/7 ( living in a large city) However, my less discriminating husband also ranted about the poor quality,...with comments that the “ croutons “ in Caesar salad “came out of a box” and the calamari was the “worst” he’s ever had. Service is good. Patio is nice , lots of local regulars , or so it seemed . That’s something.More

My family and I had a wonderful dinner here tonight ! I had the special, risotto with veal cutlets in a garlic wine sauce which was to die for; my husband had the chicken Marsala and my boys had chicken Parmesan. No one was disappointed!...Great service and atmosphere didn’t disappoint either ! Next time we are in town we are coming back !More

We had dinner on the patio and it was lovely with adequate Covid spacing. Staff was friendly and efficient and the owner stopped by to chat and to check that we were happy. My husband had chicken tortellini with a fabulous garlic sauce and I...had pasta pescatori with shrimp and scallops in a luscious lemon sauce. It was a wonderful evening.More
