We tried this place our last night in Durango since it looked nice and was almost directly across from our hotel, the Leland house. We had the Osso Bucco and left it. The service was good and the atmosphere very nice but the food was not good.

Another one of our favorites when we visit Durango. Atmosphere is very nice and has a relaxed feel. There is some limited seating outside, which is nice. Good variety of choices on the menu. Had the Pasta Pescatore and the Eggplant Parmesan and they were both delicious. Very generous amount of food, so you did not leave hungry. Service was... More

We basically stumbled onto Mutu's and it was great. We had an early light dinner there that was delicious. The Tuscan chicken skewers were unique and perfectly seasoned. the candied walnut salad wad a delight as well. Our server, Aaron was very attentive and helpful. A great find!

It is a place we come back to every time in Durango. I look forward to the calamari, raviolis & fine wine. The food is great & staff friendly & helpful. Patio is relaxing with a carefree atmosphere.

We tried to get into another restaurant that was totally booked, so maybe I didn't have a high expectation here. For drinks, we started with the Hendricks cooler. Service was a bit slow, for a place that wasn't busy. Bread arrived with some sort of spread that didn't have that much flavor. The veal porcini, however, was good, and a... More

Durango has great restaurants. Being a tourist destination sometimes the locals get weary of paying tourist prices. The food here has never disappointed. Pasta, veal and fish are their specialties. The atmosphere is nice...a little noisy. Service is above average.

What superb dining, in doors or out. Wonderful, helpful staff. From Sarah and Haley, wait staff, to Fiona, the receptionist, and Michala, who helped me search out a good movie, the staff are young, but very well trained! The food is exquisitely prepared and presented. The portions are VERY generous. Simply a lovely place to dine where you are made... More

This restaurant purports to be an Italian but shows no signs that we could see of being so. The food was pseudo Italian and lacked flavour or any indication that the chefs knew what Italian food was about. The service was very slow and our waitress apologised for the delay saying "we've got issues in the kitchen". If you are... More
