I was at Mulino’s a long time ago and recently had the opportunity to return with the Principal of Chinese School of Southern Westchester, where I taught for the past four years. Mulino’s is a well-known Italian restaurant in the area and gets superb reviews. It was no different today.
Special of the Day, Portbello with Four Cheeses on top of a bed of arugala and cheery tomatoes, drizzled with balsamic vinegar. Almost perfect other than the fact that the four cheeses made the dish just a tad too salty.
Tagliatelle alla Bolognese: Long flat ribbons of pasta tossed in a meat ragu (1/2 portion). This was pasta made and cooked to perfection. Love the meat ragu, making me want to learn how to make it. Loved. Loved. Loved.
Garganelli alla Carbonara: Garganelli pasta tossed with pancetta, eggs, and parmiggiano reggiano.
Sicilian Style Homemade Canoli: almost perfect other than the fact that it had cinnamon/cinnamon oil. The waiter did not believe me when I offered him a piece to try. He politely declined leaving me not able to successfuly argue my case. Would have been fine if I liked cinnamon but I did not.
It was an exceptional meal: the wait staff was attentive and knowledgable; the ingredients were fresh; the execution was close to perfect. The pasta was simply really really good. Highly recommend it.
