We decided to eat outside because it was a beautiful day. There was also playing across the street, which added to the atmosphere. I had the Chicken Marcela, and my husband had the Seafood Pasta dish. Both were very good, and the service was friendly...More

Get reservations! This place is popular, and now I know why. The food was incredible. If you love Olive Garden, skip this restaurant. This is good, authentic Italian. My garlic shrimp was cooked to perfection. It was accompanied by a perfect angel hair pasta. My...More

Mutu's is an attractive restaurant, and the food is tasty, but after two visits in the last month, we will not be returning. A restaurant of this caliber should have qualified, experienced waitstaff. Our server last evening was obviously not even familiar with the menu,...More

Great meal at Mutu's after a wonderful day at Mesa Verde. Spaghetti and meatballs are not ordinary here. So tasty!! Staff is friendly and attentive. Restaurant has indoor and outdoor seating. It's a block off the main drag; that makes it a lot more laid...More

On a nice summer evening in Durango, their patio is a great place to enjoy a tasty Italian dinner. Service is prompt and efficient, food is well-prepared, nice selection of wine by the glass. And save room for dessert (we're partial to the spumoni.)
