Equal parts restaurant and experience, Mulberry Italian Ristorante is a wonderful option for those who want an authentically delicious meal. Explaining that it may look like the Bronx, but that it tastes like Manhattan, this cozy eatery is just south of the center of Buffalo and offers iconic Italian foods.

Visitors to Mulberry Italian Ristorante can enjoy their lunch or dinner menu items and will find that even some of the standards are far more creative than what they usually encounter. Freshness is also a huge part of the experience, and the caprese is hand crafted each day while the pasta is homemade on the premises. Delicious and comprehensive, the Mulberry Italian Ristorante menu is a delight.

My first time at Mulberry’s: food and service were great. We were seated in the bar area so it was noisy. Other than that, I would highly recommend this establishment.

The food did not disappoint. It’s really too bad that the service did. We sat in one of those tables that is set up in a row of tables and it seemed like ours was the forgotten table. 2 couples that arrived after we did, left before us. We got an appetizer, had no plates, I got water, my boyfriend didn’t. We wanted dessert, but changed our minds because we knew it would just take too long. The list goes on and on. I am so sad, because the food is so good. I’m not sure if we will be returning. There is no excuse for terrible service. Especially considering the price we paid for our meal. Such a shame.

Terrific Italian restaurant. Food was excellent , service was wonderful, timely, attentive, relaxed atmosphere and authentic. Calamari, garlic bread, spaghetti and meatball, linguini and clams, and Martoche pasta, coffees, creme brûlée and peanut butter cheesecake. All outstanding.

Extremely disappointed in the food. I had lasagna, it was mostly noodles, it was barely warm and I thought the sauce was pretty bland. The peanut butter cheesecake with pretty good though.how they can claim that there was on his famous is beyond me. Complete let down.

We arrived early for our reservation and were seated almost immediately, our server was attentive and helpful. Our appetizers and entrees were amazing and arrived faster than anticipated. The food was delicious and the portions huge. We both took leftovers home for lunch the next day.

Love this place! Food is always consistently great. If you are seated in the bar room it can be noisy, but the food makes it worth it. The other two dining rooms are quieter. Friendly, attentive staff and delicious meals.

We have been to Mulberry Ristorante a number of times. The last two times we have felt very rushed. This visit as soon as we sat we were greeted with menus and asked for drink requests. We didn’t have a chance to even take our jackets off. We felt the Lasagna portion as well as preparation is not the same, less portion and less filling of meats in layers. Our appetizer of Zucchini blossoms was not what we expected, maybe we should have asked. For 11.00 we received two zucchini blossoms that were stuffed with a large amount of ricotta and were deep fried and cold. We sadly were not impressed with the app and the cost of it. Additionally, we did not relax due to the fact that when we go out and know the cost of dinner we would like to relax and not be done with our experience in less than an hour, We wondered if it was because of a Hockey game ending and the facility needing table. The wait staff did ask us how everything was and we did say okay because we do not like to complain. Sorry to say, we will not be back for a long while,

I asked for a Peroni draft beer. All they carried was one Italian beer in a bottle. It was OK but kind of weak.
The salad was $2.99 extra. That boggled my mind. AND it was not great at all. One grape tomato atop an assortment of weeds. I prefer a Romaine lettuce at least. I expected more on the salad since I had to pay extra. I had the roasted tomato dressing. I didn't see any roasted tomatoes nor did I taste them.. Wife had the house Italian and it was much tastier!
I had the Meatball and Spaghetti. It needed more sauce and the meatball was mediocre. It was LARGE; probably a downside; if I wanted a meatloaf with my pasta I would have ordered it. A couple or 3 smaller meatballs would have been MUCH better.
My wife had the ricotta gnocchi. She said it was good, but could have used more sauce.
Overall, we said we probably would not go back. I'd rather go up the road to Ilio DiPaolo's.
Very disappointed.

Arrived on a Saturday evening about 15 mins early but was seated in just a few mins. We were seating in the back of the restaurant which is much quieter then the seating by the bar. Much more energetic up front. We had a wonderful waitress who was very personable unfortunately I can't remember her name. She was able to get the bartender to make me up a drink with the few ingredients I provided her that I liked in a cocktail.
Portions were amble with leftovers going home. It was the biggest meatball I ever saw but still juicy and flavorful. The specialty lasagna with the 3 different meats was outstanding. Unfortunately we didn't have room for dessert but certainly will be back to try it out.

Arancini was cold, like cheese inside not melted type of cold. They offered to take it back, and just microwaved it instead of giving us a new order. Zucchini blossoms were great. Soup (beef vegetable)was warm, not hot and bland. Wedge salad was fine, Roquefort sure is strong though. Manicotti was good, sauce was great. Meatball just isn’t the same as it was.

We were seated right away, the food was homemade, hot and fresh. Service was on the ball, we didn't need to ask for anything because our server was right on it. Dishes that were finished were removed right away so there was never any clutter at the table. Excellent in all areas.

Every bite was so good, I felt like it was a reward for the hard work and stress of daily life. The handmade taste separates this place from the rest. It makes you appreciate the pride the chef puts into his craft and quickly note the attention to detail demonstrated in the quality of the ingredients chosen to make for a true dining experience.

Mulberry is one of WNY’s best restaurants. A friendly environment and a fine Italian dining experience. Lots of great meals on the menu, but the meatball appetizer and lasagna dinner are not to be missed!

Our server Rene seemed overwhelmed. He returned to the table 5 minutes after he took our order and asked my fiancé what she ordered because he forgot. He also forgot my wine. I reminded him after our entrees were being cleaned off of the table. He also rarely came to our table. He didn’t check on our entrees until they were gone. My bowtie noodles were much colder than my broccoli. Rene did give us dessert on the house for the forgotten wine. I’ll still give it another shot as it has such a great reputation.
