Nice little Italian place in downtown. Service was good as well as food. The fish and special pork chop were excellent!

It didn't start well. At all. The hostess was. A (insert b word). She not only wasn't interested in seating us in a nearly empty restaurant, she was downright annoyed that we were bothering her by coming to the restaurant. Turns out, she's the manager!

He had me try one his meatballs and they were really, really good. My lasagna was great. We also had salads and split... More

Start with a complement or two. The atmosphere in Mutu's is terrific. Huge, high ceilings, seating on two different levels, lots of space between tables. Sara was a good as a waitperson gets. Unfortunately, then there was the food. Dinner for two. We started with the antipasto plate. Visually, it was wonderful. A giant pile of shredded lettuce served as... More

Love their home made bread. Had the veal porcini which was to die for. Lady had the mahi mahi and loved it. Sarah the waitress was great with her suggestions and friendliness. A block above the bustle of downtown, more relaxing.

We were traveling on but spent the night nearby and decided on Italian Food for dinner. The ambience was wonderful and open in feel. Our food was outstanding and our waitress made a great wine suggestion for us. The cannoli was excellent for dessert as well. We would definitely return.

This is a neat and very popular restaurant and a definite favorite of the locals. The food and drink are excellent, and the service is very good. It has a nice atmosphere and is highly recommended. We sat at the bar, and it was fun.

Mutu's offerings are just average, nothing special to write home about, but definitely acceptable. We opted for other dining options for subsequent evenings.

This truly was: "OK, let's do the Italian" and turned out to be amazing food! Busy Friday night, but managed to get the table. Very nice atmosphere , friendly service. Portions big, so careful on ordering starters and main dishes as there will be no room for a dessert...

We didn't have a reservation and we were told the wait was 45 minutes but it was open seating in the bar. The bar was practically empty and the bartender was a great guy! Our dinner was delicious and the cocktails and dessert was great too! The lighting, ambiance, food, and fabulous service couldn't be beat!
