IL Mulino or Del Posto

I need help...couldn't get Babbo and have never been to either of these. I know both of these can get pretty bad reviews sometimes, but are they really that bad? Which has the better food? I am taking my grandmother and parents. Please help!!

  1. I think Il Mulino over than Del Posto for parents and grandparents. I think they will enjoy the small beautiful space. They do both get some bad press here and there but they are really wonderful. I do think Del Posto can get a bit too adventurous. I find Da Umberto to be much more consistant but a little more low key.
    Let us know how it goes.

    1. The food is ok at Il Mullino, but not worth the prices, and the place is torture. Trust the bad reviews on Chowhound.

        agreed. can't understand the fuss over il mulino. it is a just better than average red sauce joint where they treat the regulars better than all. i hate that....
