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!

We ordered drinks and an appetizer in the bar while we waited for our table. Service was very slow - neither were served to us before we went to our table at least 20 minutes later. However, the Bruschetta was fabulous when it did get to us. Our service in the dinning room was good as was the rest of... More

We booked before we went, So I'd hope we got a nice table, instead we got somewhere really dark in the corner. so we have to used our IPhone for light. However the food was reasonably good. (Since I own & be head chef to Italian restaurant for 7.5 years) there was no complain about food at all. I can... More

The food here was delicious - all four of us enjoyed our meals. We'd had a long day and this topped it off perfectly. Started with a perfectly mixed cocktail, bottle of wine for dinner and one of the most entertaining, funny and witty servers I'd had in a long time. It was almost like dinner theater! It was one...

Wonderful food and the service was excellent. The place was full but our food came out quickly. Our server was attentive and we had no issues at all. Highly recommend.

Some friends recommended Mutu's Italian Kitchen. When we were in Duragno recently, we tried it. My husband and I were glad we did. We made a reservation and were warmly greeted at the door. Our waitress was friendly, helpful and attentive. We had a lovely evening and excellent meals. I chose the broiled salmon with champagne, lemon sauce, veggie sticks... More

Just passing through Durango we happened to choose Mutu's for an early dinner. Great service AND food. We had lemon shrimp scampi and veal porcini. Perfect!
