New Times Broward-Palm Beach's Description
Some love and some hate this long-running, classic Italian place in Fort Lauderdale, now more than 20 years old. We happen to like it just fine, because, among other things, it's cheap! A plate of homemade pasta may set you back as little as ten bucks, and those are some darned good noodles. Il Mulino also serves imported burrata mozzarella cheese with prosciutto for an antipasti. They never run out of garlic rolls, and they are not light-handed with that pungent herb; you'll go home reeking of the stuff. Their specials can be spectacular, like the walnut-crusted sea bass with lemony, Parm-infused risotto. They serve polenta. And their bucatini pasta rules for its delicious, chewy texture and vaguely sweet-yeasty flavor. But beware, this fare is heavy: creamy, buttery, garlicky, and ultrarich.
Tips from foursquare
The best part of our meal was the glass of wine & the bread, the food was just ok!
The fusilli naturale is amazing. Garlic rolls always have too much garlic
Food was good but restaurant was ver warm and uncomfortable. Would not eat there again and sweat thru another meal
Inexpensive, good atmosphere and service and the food is pretty good considering it's an Italian restaurant in FL...
