Please help me pick - Il Mulino or Tutto Italia?

I have never been to Il Mulino and was thinking of trying it on our upcoming trip. It has been years since I ate at Tutto Italia and I know they just did it over. I already have a lunch at Via Naploi because we Love the pizza there. I have to call next week for my reservations and I can't make up my mind on which one to book. Any reviews would be great!!!!

Thanks everyone !!!!

Il mulino I think is divine!

I have not to Tutta since last December and it is good for sure, and we do it more often just because it is in the park but if you can do the other you will not regret it!

That's tough, I love them both! I would go with Il Mulino as well, and the main reason is because I love the eggplant caponata and salami they bring to the table! LOL I could seriously just eat that and go home happy.

Il Mulino is an excellent restaurant. Quality and service are first class all the way! I just added a review on my dining website-feel free to check it out.

Have never eaten at Tutto but I find it hard to believe it is close to on par with Il Mulino. It was absolutely outstanding. We actually had ADRs at Tutto once but swapped it out with Via Napoli because so many people had issues with Tutto. If you choose Il Mulino just be aware that it is more upscale and dress is business casual. I wouldn't wear what I would to a park restaurant to Il Mulino.

Our Ratings of Il Mulino: (7/15/2011)
. . . food price value: B
. . . food quality: A
. . . food quantity per serving: B
. . . food prep speed: B
. . . food selection: B
. . . seating quantity: B
. . . seating comfort: A
. . . eatery atmosphere: B
. . . eatery convenience: B
. . . staff friendliness: B
. . . staff attentiveness: A
. . . character interaction: n/a

NOTE: This is only one of five sit-down eateries we patronize
at WDW.
The service is always exquisite and the food very good
to excellent. I want to feel important at a fine dinner, and IL Mulino
does this to their patrons. We felt the price-to-food/service ratio
to be of excellent value. We had two servers who kept our glasses
full and our needs always met. It is good to be pampered.

Never been to Il mulino, but we never miss Tutto's for a meal...Been there 9 times..

Usually always dine al fresco around 5 or so....This last trip though we finally ate inside which was really really nice, and the meal didn't disappoint as usual..

I know they redid the inside and revamped the menu a lil since , but I can't believe that the place has gone down...I like it because its right there when its an epcot day, but being that we are staying at the BWV this year...maybe I'll give Il mulino a try out...

We love il Mulino!! One of the best restaurants we have eaten in anywhere not just WDW. The food and atmosphere set it above all but the highest level WDW restaurants. We first ate there about 4 years ago and now it's on our never miss list. We had Dinner there on Easter Sunday and it was phenomenal as usual.

So it does compare w/ some of the finest restaurants up here in Jersey or NYC?

That's good to know...

We just did Tutto again last week. Last time before this was Dec. 2011.

I am doing a dining review and for now the place is off our list. The food was terrible. Olives and a terrible bread to start. Meals were terrible.

Save your money and go to Il Mulino.

I liked Il Mulino just as much as any of the Italian restaurants I patronized in the six years I lived in North Jersey, and more than quite a lot of them.

To follow up on one of the other posts, the service is impeccable. Attentive but not overwhelming.

We just dined at Tutto a few days earlier .... wanted to check it out post improvements. The food is just ok , it's nothing to rave about , menu is very short , nothing offered is what I'd call exceptional. It's 'ok' food. If you are looking to be blown away by excellent Italian food , that's not what Tutto Italia is going for : )

If you want to be impressed ... I'd go to Il Mulino.

Save the Italy Pavillion for Via Napoli and Tutto Gusto , the Wine Cellar , which we actually completey enjoyed. Via Napoli always on our to-do list for lunch , and now , so is Tutto Gusto.


Ciao!
