    Service was terrible, salad and appetizers came out quickly then an hour wait for main entree. Restaurant seemed more interested in selling us more bottles of wine. This was a big weekend in Baltimore so one would think the restaurant would have been better prepared to serve their guests. Food was simply just ok, not delicious but not cold or overcooked. Their recommended veal chop was overpowered with rosemary and balsamic vinegar masking the flavor the meat.

    We arrived just before 11pm on a Friday night and soured on the place just after the four of us ordered five dishes and told the server we would be sharing them. The server told us there would be a $9.00 sharing charge, "Is that okay?" I quickly replied that it would not be okay, unclear as to whether it was that amount for the table or per person. She seemed stunned. I told her we had ordered five dishes and that there were only two table occupied in the whole room. I directed her to have one plate put in front of each of us and the pasta in the middle. That and the mediocre food will have me dining elsewhere when back in Charm City.

    Almost empty on a Saturday night in August. Not a particularly warm atmosphere. Two of us had the sword fish at $48 each plate. Cooked in capers and white wine, what ever else was added made it excessively seasoned, we both agreed. Other two in our party had unremarkable entrees. With a couple glasses of house wine and three desserts for 4 people the bill was $300 without tip. Service was courteous but not great. None of us would return to what was claimed by the manager of the Inner Harbor Marriott as a great restaurant.

    This is our first visit to Da Mimmo's and it will not be our last. The waiter was always checking to see if we were happy with the food and did we require anything else. The water Goblets never got down past the half fill line. The Goat Cheese Salad and the Spring baby Spinach salads were very tasty. My wife had the veal chop and she said it was the best she had ever eaten. I had the Veal Saltimbocca and it melted in my mouth. The house Merlot was good as could be expected for a house wine. As you know parking is at a premium in Little Italy===so being able to park on their lot was a bonus. We will not be strangers to Da Mimmo's. lunch time was quite

    What a wonderful place da Mimmo's is. We arrived a little early and frazzled from a baseball game and then trying to get to the restaurant, and they were wonderful. We were dressed extremely casually, but they invited us in - and I mean heartfelt "inviting" . It was such a beautiful restaurant that we felt very under dressed. Anyway, the decor was beautiful, the service was wonderful - our waiter was the son of one of the owners of this family-owned and operated restaurant! He was friendly, very knowledgeable, and efficient. We were never rushed, and we ate our meals with great satisfaction! We loved it. Very romantic, very lovely...a great experience. We would go again and again, and recommend it to everyone!

    Wait staff was very professional and attentive. The food was very good but could have used a bit more time between courses. Wine selection is great and atmosphere very pleasant. It was nice to dine in a restaurant where you can have a conversation without shouting over others. I would dine here again.

    The service was impeccable but sadly, our orange roughy was less than what I was expecting for a restaurant the caliber of Da Mimmo's. It was a reasonable portion but it sat sadly on the plate with no garnish or veggies. The sauce was ok but again, not great. Our appetizers were very good and the cranberry almond salad was very tasty.

    I have been to DaMimmo's several times. I went during restaurant week with my daughter and we both decided to take advantage of the week's specials. We started with the shrimp appetizer and house salads. She had the pasta dish and raved about it and I had my usual veal chop which is a must! The side of broccoli could have been cooked a bit longer for my liking. We ended the meal with sharing a creme carmel which was very good.

    Went for Restaurant Week and maybe that was why the portions were tiny. Appetizer was 2 shrimp. Salad was oversoaked in dressing and was tiny. Main course was 2 very thinly sliced of veal Marsala. My husband had the orange roughy and it was so small that I shared my small serving of veal. We had to ask for bread 3 times and then the waiter wanted to up sale us to the $1.25/slice of garlic bread. We were celebrating a 33rd anniversary and I feel bad that I recommended Da Mimmo's. We all left hungry!! The restaurant is beautiful and the waitstaff are in tuxedos. But, the experience was bad and I won't return.

    We've eaten here many times over the years. The food was good but now there's WAY TOO MUCH ATTITUDE!!! The waiter was always looking down his nose at us, wasn't pleased that he had to come back for our order. There was only one other table in use at the time. Then the hostess started putting tables together for a larger group and one of the chairs blocked the exit. My husband, career fire, told her she couldn't do that and she had an even bigger attitude. There are a lot of other places in Little Italy, you don't need to be treated so rudely.

    I've had both dinner and lunches at this restaurant in the past where the food was wonderful as was the service. On Saturday night, following a sold out Orioles vs Yankees game, the restaurant as one "should" have imagined was packed. They were seriously understaffed and after being in the restaurant for 2 hours, we left. The service was poor, the food was ok - even though they brought me the wrong dinner and told me that if I wanted what I ordered it would take a long time as they were very busy - so I ordered anything the waiter suggested would be quick. What I did get was not good. My concern overall is that the waiter didn't even seem apologetic in anyway. I believe from now on in Little Italy my money is better spent elsewhere.

    We had a great time. The food was excellent. The atmosphere was truly top notch, it's a beautiful place and extremely authentic. The pricing is not for the faint of heart however. For a lunch with 4 people, it was just under $ 300 with the tip. The service was also very good. We were happy to go and experience a meal there while on vacation. I should also note that they purposefully seated people as far away from each other as possible so that you could enjoy the meal with your group rather than stacking folks in so it's easy on the servers. This place is as much about the experience you have as the food.

All three in our party had an unbelievable meal from the cocktails and wine selections to each menu course. When we head back to 'Little Italy' this is the one place we sure sure to go to.

    Every time I go to Da Mimmos, I expect to see Frank Sinatra walk in. This classic timeless Italian restaurant never fails to impress with amazing food, service and ambience. Start with a martini at the classic bar with Anastasia and take time to relax before getting your table. I don;t think I have every ordered from the menu as the best veal chops and their special lobster tetrazzini are our got dishes. This is THE classic Baltimore Little Italy restaurant for that special occasion.

    Find out if you will be having a large table seated near you. The atmosphere was nice until a large, loud group was seated next to our table. We had to raise our voices just to hear each other speak. Our nice, quiet dinner was over very quickly. When we arrived the "hostess" was more in tune to a box of chocolates then addressing and welcoming us to the restaurant. Finally the chef had to step in for us to be seated. We over heard the servers discussing how much they thought their tips would be for certain tables ( they thought our table would only give $5.00!) Great food but retraining for quality customer service is justly needed.
