Ate here last night with my wife and 2 teenage sons. This place is so special....
The restaurant is difficult to find and one needs a car/taxi- the address on Tripadvisor etc is wrong - your sat navs, if set to the Via Di Bana address from Tripadvisor will take you in to the middle of no where. The restaurant is actually on Via San Lazzaro.
The place was beautiful, even in the pouring rain - an old mill... The welcome was so warm - like coming home. The inside is cosy and homely. The two ladies running the place were absolutely lovely. The food - fantastico! There are 2 options - €25 for 2 courses or €30 for 3 (antipasti, primi patti, secondi). This includes all the food as well as water, wine, dessert, coffee and limoncello/grappa. There are a variety of dishes/options on the menu and everyone is catered for. For antipasti we were served 6 different items. We then had the pasta course - we could not decide what to order and so the owner suggested 3 decent helpings of 3 varieties of pasta for us all to share - amazing tastes/flavours. For mains we had the bbq mixed grill, rabbit stew and melzanna parmigiana. Desserts were amazing. All in all a lovely evening in a beautiful and homely place with the loveliest of hosts. This place is really special and one of those gems you will never forget. Thank you for a fab evening.....

This is a must if you are staying anywhere in Rapallo . You must drive here as it’s not a easy place to find . But it is so worthwhile as it is one of the best dining experiences you will get while in Italy . A very reasonable place to spend your evening . Reservations are accepted and recommended on weekends . Just don’t miss this place .,

Went for dinner to this unique restaurant up in hills above rapallo. Little hard to find and limited parking, but a great meal and cool atmosphere ( old saw mill ) awaits you once you arrive . Fixed price with choices of starters, 1st course, 2nd course ( 25 or 30 euro ) . Food is plentiful ( you won’t leave hungry) and fresh and really really good . Oh - and wine is included in price . The host Betty was quite helpful and friendly . Mostly locals eating here . Get away from same ole tourist restaurants and go to this restaurant. You will enjoy . I’m sure taxi service to this restaurant can’t be very much .

Vecchio Mulino is one of the many restaurants I visited on my recent trip to Italy, that I cannot stop raving about. Betty was our server for the night and she not only was so warm and welcoming, but she provided an awesome service.

Everything from their wine, to the plate portions, the delicious ingredients used, we just loved it all.

Not to mention it's in a beautiful, little-secluded area with a friendly cat!
