Vintage Ferraris ran on a high-octane mixture of tomato sauce and parmesan, a savory blend that eventually turned petty car thieves into bona fide pasta barons. Get a baron's share of this desirable concoction with today's deal: for $20, you get $40 worth of home-style Italian cuisine at Mulino's Restaurant, located on the second floor of Northampton’s Baystate Hotel.
Mulino’s Restaurant enchants eaters with a menu that's stocked with sophisticated preparations of traditional Italian flavors. Fix your stomach’s spooky echo by filling it with antipasti such as cozze parmigiano, which partners fresh Maine mussels with roasted garlic, butter, lemon, and parmigiano cheese ($7.95), or opt for an order of fried calamari ($7.95), the tentacled temptation that was used as currency in many parts of Italy up until the end of World War II. An enormous roster of pastas includes conchiglie di cognac, a mélange of sweet Italian sausage, shell pasta, garlic, roasted red peppers, and spinach ($15.95), as well as primavera, which provides a herbivorian hodgepodge of fresh veggies and spaghetti paired with either tomato or cream sauce ($13.95). Salmon Barolo, a combination of pan-seared salmon with roasted red peppers and artichoke hearts ($16.95), gives supping seafarers a nautical nosh, and bistecca gorgonzola ($23.95) proves cows are more than just nature’s easiest tipping target.
Brick walls, evocative décor, and sterling service come together to give the restaurant an atmosphere of warmth and comfort, like a Tuscan villa full of friendly chefs. Reservations are recommended.
From their kitchen stations on the second story of the Bay State Hotel, the chefs at Mulino's Restaurant plate up hearty portions of sophisticated Italian cuisine. Piled-high plates showcase tender linguine, spaghetti, and fettuccine clinging to gorgonzola cream sauce, italian sausages, veggies, and julienned strips of chicken. The aromas of wine-coated salmon and grilled beef tenderloin also fight for the attention of diners who are taking their time with their wine, served by the glass, bottle, or through a penne noodle. Desserts such as crème brûlée and tiramisu sweetly seal the meal.
