We were four for dinner early on a weekday evening in this crowded Village eatery. When the restaurant filled up it became noisy. Il Molino is very poorly lit; reading the menu required a flashlight. The tables are more appropriate for cocktails but the waiters did a great job clearing plates to make room for each course. The veal Marsala... More

Love this restaurant! Convenient location, nice atmosphere. Food outstanding. They begin your experience with the chunks of Parmesan cheese and olives. Make sure you order their meatballs as an appetizer. Delicious! Can't go wrong with any of their main courses. Seafood, pasta... meat, all great! TavelDivaDayna

A lot of employees, quick service, but not customer appreciation. A big variation of Italian food. Good, not awesome foof. Small romantic place, good for couples

Went here with clients and everyone loved the meal and the service. Taking away 1 star because the restaurant was a little cramped and noisy due to number of tables. Food and service offset any inconvenience.

Had a fabulous dinner at Il Mulino. George and the entire staff made us feel so welcome on a busy Saturday night! Atmosphere is old Italian with wine boxes and tuxedoed staff. Food is amazing! Black truffle and mushroom pasta a true stand out! Make sure to dine here

I have been traveling to New York City, monthly, for over 40 years, and always make a point to have at least one meal at Il Mulino on every trip! It is the greatest Italian restaurant in New York City! The food is excellent and the service staff go above and beyond to make sure you have an excellent dining... More

Went here for a business dinner with a group of 8. One of our client's chose this place, as he'd not been here in years. He is a connoisseur of fine food, so I had high expectations. My expectations were met! The exterior of the building seems nondescript. Upon entering, you are transformed back in time to a simple, yet... More

Some friends and I splurged here for my fiancee's birthday...the experience is unparalleled! The service is a definite highlight of the evening. We were somewhat early for our reservation, so sat at the bar sipping drinks and talking to the folks. The wine was deep and red and delicious. My fiancee had the mussels and a friend had the octopus,... More

Very classy Italian eatery. Extensive wine list. Food was great, notably the Shrimp Romano. The pasta appetizer with black truffle was also very tasty. Dishes are pricey but well worth it for a special occasion.

Wonderful old school Italian restaurant. Small cozy dining room with lots of tables. Many complimentary bites are offered before your meal, so pace yourself! Loved the shards of parmesan cheese and calamari. Our pasta was fresh and delicious. I shared an entree with another and it was the right call! Great atomsphere. Delicious meal!

Greenwich Village
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to get a feel for this diverse and energetic neighbourhood. You’ll find NYU students, street performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess. Stroll the streets to discover a mix of majestic town homes and hidden bars and restaurants that give this neighbourhood an old-school residential feel. When the sun goes down, check out one of the famous jazz or comedy clubs that still packs them in every night.
