Il Mulino is fine Italian style dining that has proven its popularity, spawning over a dozen locations in the United States and Puerto Rico. The newest location is in the Hamptons village of Wainscott, directly on the Montauk Highway. The newly renovated space is elegant and classy, with rich burgundy carpeting and warm incandescent lighting that creates a soothing glow. Wine bottles and original murals line the walls, which makes for a cozy setting that supports the fine Italian dining theme. The crowd is eager and energetic, a who's-who of the sophisticated Hamptons scene.
: Il Mulino has a roster of tested and beloved Italian favorites and most of them are part of the Hamptons menu, albeit with some simplification and customization to highlight the “greatest hits.” The wood-fired oven churns out lavish pizzas, like prosciutto and rucola or funghi and tartufi. Steak and seafood are hearty and prepared to 5-star standards: witness the broiled branzino or the 36-ounce Porterhouse for two. The menu utilizes Long Island local seafood and produce whenever possible.
Il Mulino has also announced a commitment to honor special meal requests, including gluten-free and low sodium versions of standard menu items. The wine list is extensive and focused on high quality offerings. Service is professional and attentive.
