We had a very enjoyable lunch at Il Mulino. The sea bass was perfectly cooked and a nice selection of fresh vegetables to accompany it along with a pesto sauce. My colleague had pasta with tuna. The food came quickly, was piping hot (despite us eating outside) and the service was spot on. The pasta is better value than the fish at half the price but the quality of the sea bass was worth paying for.

Looked into the main restaurant before leaving and it looked very cosy. The wines on display looked very promising (good Italian tuscan wines).

Can't wait to try the evening service the next time I stay overnight in Essen

Friendly staff, good food, relatively quick service.

Central to Essen, a few minutes from the main station.

Il Mulino is a hidden gem in Essen's city centre. We have eaten there many times and we have never been been disappointed. There is an extensive menu with daily specials but we tend to choose the excellent pasta dishes - there are a number of them on the menu or you create your own: you pick the type of pasta (penne, tagliatelle, spaghetti, etc) and you are spoilt for choice to pick your favourite sauce from an long list of available options.
The portions are generous, the sauces are light. no stodgy cream sauces found here.
The service is friendly and efficient, over the years it has become a firm favourite for lunch. The quality of the food is high, the prices are surprisingly moderate: we paid Euro 22 for two pasta dishes, a glass of house red wine and a bottle of water.
