Came in after Valentine's with my husband and five other friends and had the most sincere, naturally humorous server we have ever encountered. Her name was Grier. I was a little nervous she would have trouble accommodating us since we were eating upstairs but I swear she treated us like royalty even though she had to punish herself by running... More

I dined at Mutu's last night and the upside was that this place is so clean and open and welcoming and the staff is very friendly. The wine that Aaron suggested was very, very good and his attentiveness was very good too. The bread and garlic spread were good. I ordered the lasagna and I wasn't thrilled. My companion had...

Let’s start with the positives – We made reservations for 10 for 6:00 pm on a Saturday night. Four of us arrived at 5:35 pm and the table was ready to go – great. We headed upstairs and my family gathered at the one end of the table and I ordered a beer from a very uninterested waiter. At 6:05,... More

I have tried this place numerous times and I can't get beyond wondering when it will ever start acting like a real restaurant. The menu is priced like a fine dining establishment but the food and service never measure up. I was in a group this evening and I ordered a chicken entree from the varied choices and requested capellini... More

If you know that a meal is more than the food, that ambiance and service are an important part of the package, then you already know why Mutu's is so good. It's the real deal. When I'm there, I prefer to sit in the small upper balcony, or loft, which feels a little like sitting upstairs on a cruise ship,... More

On the recommendation of a chef friend who lives in town, we went to dinner on our most recent visit at Mutu’s Italian Kitchen, WOW! My DH is American-Italian from the East Coast and is VERY picky about his Italian food. That’s the reason the our friends steered us this way. Great Meal! We started with the Antipasti that we...

We ate on the patio here one night and it was very nice. They do get busy so if you can go early it would help. Prices are a bit high but you are in a tourist mecca. My husband had eggplant parm and said it was some of the best he ever ate. If you like Italian yu will... More

This is the third or fourth time we have selected Mutu's for dining. First, I must note the price range Tripadvisor has for this restaurant is a bit low. Pasta prices range from $10.95- $13.95. Seafood ranges from $17.95 - $21.95. Meats range from $17.95 - $27.95. We made reservations for 6 people. We were seated promptly on a Monday... More

Recommended by hotel receptionist, it was a good choice. The food was excellent but service a little slow. That was not down to the friendly waitress, just too many customers and too few staff. Portion size is very good and overall, one of the few good places in town
