A word from Mimi's Italian Grill - Centennial Place
Mimi is the one who invites you over, makes you glad you came the moment you arrive and hopes you came hungry. Mimi's food has a big Italian heart and you're going to love it - it's simple, playful and satisfying. Pastas of all kinds, from old-country spaghetti to fresh ravioli made by hand. Meats and fish grilled simply, from the heart. Pizzas, thin and crisp with happiness. Salads composed with a generous Italian hand. And wine, lots of great wine, cheerfully served and deliciously affordable. Mimi's is colour, warmth and energy, inspired by the Mediterranean in all of us and by family and friends who share in the good times.



Mimi's. In-house. By hand. With Love

Diner Reviews
  • "The lunch salads and mussels were really great! We would definitely go back."
    Dined on 4/10/2014
  • "Showed up for our reso ... and apparently everyone decided to go home early. So we went to Ric's next door and it was delicious!"

  • "My friend and I came to Mimi's for her birthday lunch and weren't disappointed! Our server was attentive without being overbearing. He wanted to recommend wine, but I have my favorites - I thought it was good of him to try though! We shared the bruschetta to start and it was so delicious - loved the balsamic reduction! My friend enjoyed her risotto special and I my Italian club sandwich. The waiter knew it was my friends birthday so he offered up a complimentary piece of peaches and cream cheesecake YUM! All in all, a very good experience was had."

  • "I've eaten here several times, mostly for convenience of location. You won't be disappointed but you also won't be overly impressed. The meal sizes are quite large, especially for lunch. I recently had the Fettuccine Alfredo and it would have been enough for two people, especially if you had a salad or other appetizer to start."
    Dined on 4/3/2014
  • "Visited with 2 friends. Shared a cheese pizza for appy and it was great, Crust was thin, crispy and delicious. We each had a different salad for main. Mine was spinich and had a combination that did not work, another was an arugula salad with a mustard dressing that I tasted and found inedible. Other salad was just OK. Will try this place again and have a pasta or other entre to give it a fair chance. Great location and good vibe in the place. Service was very slow!"
    Dined on 4/2/2014
  • "Love the modern European decor. The food was really delicious and potions were reasonable. We loved the pasta dishes and the wildberry crime brûlée was excellent. Very attentive service."
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "Had a great experience and a great place for lunch meetings. Our Server was attentive and informative on options from the menu. Great wine and was easy to have discussions at a normal talking volume. Time line for food was within the hour."
    Dined on 12/4/2013
  • "We had reservations for 7PM Saturday night. We arrived 10 minutes early, as we drove by the lights looked off and it seemed empty, we parked the car, walked up the the door and WHAT??? LOCKED?? I checked the open table app and it said they were open from 5 PM until 10 on Saturday night. I rechecked our confirmation and everything we in order. So I then go on Open table to try and book something else close by but it won't let me because we already has a reservation at this restaurant. I tried to cancel this res but it said we couldn't. What frustration."

  • "Modern, clean cut Italian restaurant. Risotto special was heavy and rich. One of the best risottos I've had."
    Dined on 2/10/2014
  • "Food is always packed with flavor and the service is generally fast. The noise level rises significantly when the lunch crowd is in full swing."
    Dined on 3/12/2014
  • "Very quiet, only one other group in the restaurant. Waitress great"
    Dined on 3/6/2014
  • "Best tasting spaghetti and meatballs that I have had in a LONG time!"
    Dined on 3/4/2014
  • "Despite all the reviews that said the service wasn't very good, my husband and I thoroughly enjoyed a very leisurely dinner. Since it was Valentines, there was a special menu and Mimi's had arranged for some wonderful musical entertainment. It's unfortunate that some of the patrons were in too much of hurry to enjoy as we did."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "The server was friendly, but where we were seated meant that our server was also the bar tender which may have impacted the timing of the service. We had two in our party that needed gluten free and the server confirmed they had pasta available. After waiting half an hour we asked about our food which arrived another 15 minutes later, however, serving gluten free pasta with a piece of bread on top (non-gluten) doesn't work! Food tasted good, just a long time to wait for it."
    Dined on 2/26/2014
  • "Service and food are never consistent, but the noise level is always too high to have a conversation. Today our party of 6 waited 35 minutes for lunch meaning no time for coffee or dessert, as we had to return to the office. The server did not come by to explain the delay until we flagged her down. Food was good but a rushed meal is always frustrating."
    Dined on 2/26/2014
  • "Went for lunch, 1st time there. Ordered white wine, were told we could only order 1 of three chioces because they had to use those up first. Very odd, and a bad start. Both had pizza, portions were sizable which is good. Pizza's were a little overdone though, mine was dry and not that tasty. Oh well, will try again though."
    Dined on 2/25/2014
  • "Went with 7 people for a ladies lunch. About 1/2 were fully satisfied with their meals. A couple said theirs were ok. I had an expensive "feature" lunch at about $27. Wouldn't even compare to a lunch at same price at The Keg or other high end restaurant. The square piece of halibut that formed the centre of the lunch feature resembled a large filet of fish (without the crunchy exterior) and I believe had been frozen and had no flavour. The cream cheese and crab topping was more cream than crab and was overly rich. Rice side dish was flavorless. The side vegetables, while boring (ie. broccoli and carrots), were cooked very well. I wouldn't make a point of going back."

  • "The food is a little pricey, but worth it. I ate every morsel."
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "Had a nice quiet business meeting was a great lunch location."
    Dined on 2/19/2014
  • "This was the best meal I have had at Mimi's since they opened... although that doesn't say much. We were a small group and several of us ordered pizza. Unfortunately most of the pizzas had burnt edges. Maybe this is how they are suppose to be with their pizza oven but this is just not to my preference. The flavour of the Napoli pizza was actually quite good, just don't eat the burnt edges."
    Dined on 2/18/2014
  • "This was our first time at Mimi's and it also happened to be Valentine's Day. The food overall was good - nothing spectacular but reasonable quality. The kitchen was overwhelmed with the volume of diners and the server was quick to apologize for the wait. Service was very good - our server was attentive and the other staff were very pleasant and helpful. While not a foodie hangout I would recommend it for a night out and it is kid friendly so that parents can have a grown up meal that doesn't come wrapped in paper with the golden arches."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Don't order the mussels. I suppose it was my mistake ordering a seafood in a non-seafood restaurant in Calgary, but they were awful. Falling apart and tasted like they had been frozen for too long and de-thawed. Also went at lunch time, and they were so busy that the service wasn't very good. Had to wait amost 15 minutes to get the bill at the end of the meal, and the server only offered me a drink refill once we had finished eating and were ready to go. Wouldn't really recommend this restaurant to anyone, especially since the prices were so high. I dont mind paying a high price if it is a good experience and good food. Unfortunately this was not the case."
    Dined on 2/5/2014
  • "Mimi's had a very extensive menu with lots of options. The mains were a bit large for lunch but excellent. I highly recommend the scallops."
    Dined on 1/22/2014
  • "good location if you"re in the area large pasta portions didnt see a wine list"
    Dined on 1/17/2014
  • "I have enjoyed two meals lately at Mimi's and the food was great both times."
    Dined on 1/11/2014
  • "I was surprised how quiet it was although, Bam, they served a mean pasta I highly recommend you try it. Everyone of us enjoyed what we ordered. BTW, the service was excellent! Bonappetit!"
    Dined on 1/4/2014
  • "It was our first time at Mimi's. The food was good, but a bit over-salted. List of cocktails was great. I think we'll be back to try new things."
    Dined on 12/19/2013
  • "Excellent Italian food and very good menu with lots of choices. However, the meal was a too pricey for Lunch and especially since this is Italian food which is mostly pasta. Dinner prices at Lunch discourages a return visit."
    Dined on 12/20/2013
  • "The food was good and flavourful for the dish I had. The service was slow and awkward. The young man we had spoke to quietly, and reached around us while we ate. He had a hard time and interrupted while we were having a conversation. After other tables left he paid us to much attention. In the beginning we were not acknowledge for 10 min after sitting. In the end to much attention"
    Dined on 12/19/2013
  • "The place was packed and the as such the noise levels very high. It did make being able to hear colleagues speaking to you a bit of a challenge. However, the food was excellent and the waiter very knowledgeable on the menu and able to make great recommendations. Nothing disappointed and I would go to Mimi's again both with family & friends as well as work colleagues. Next time I will try for an after work group or girls night out."
    Dined on 12/17/2013
  • "While the food was good, not outstanding but good, the service was incredibly slow. It took over an hour to get our meal. Since this was during the lunch hour it was totally unacceptable. And then to get someone to give us our bill and get it paid took 15 minutes. After our food was delivered we didn't see our waitress for another half hour. There are a lot of good Italian restaurants in Calgary. I don't know why I would go back to Mimi's."
    Dined on 12/17/2013
  • "A group of co-workers celebrated Christmas by going for lunch. I found Mimi's had availability for 10 people and had no idea what to expect. It was great. Everyone really enjoy the restaurant, the food and the ambiance. A real hit among my co-workers."
    Dined on 12/17/2013
  • "Food is good, service is good, atmosphere is lively. It is nice to have a upscale option within walking distance. Recommend a reservation."
    Dined on 12/12/2013
  • "4 ppl seated at a table that would have been tight for 2. Servers brought out our second course just as we started eating our first course, and proceeded to try to balance/stack more plates on our already over crowded table, despite our requests to wait until we were finished with our plates. Second course was cold after sitting on the table while we ate salads. Good food, but servers need some training if this place is to survive..."
    Dined on 12/12/2013
  • "This restuarant is okay. It was very busy and quite loud (understandably with the number of diners). As a result, service was relatively slow although our server was friendly when she was at our table. The food was decent but for the prices you might expect a little bit better quality overall."
    Dined on 12/11/2013
  • "Food was great. Had our office luncheon there. Had to wait 1/2 before we were asked for our appetizers. Service was okay, but after the food came, the waitress made sure we were doing alright. Overall, good experience."
    Dined on 12/10/2013
  • "The service was terrible. The waitress did not take our drink orders until 10 – 15 minutes after we all sat down. Then, she did not come back to take our appetizers order until we called her. We order the appetizers and then she brought our drinks, horrible service. We were planning on having a few drinks and we were all so upset that we had our meal and promised never to go back to that restaurant."
    Dined on 12/6/2013
  • "Mimi's was very busy and our time was limited because we had to go to the theatre, so we were glad the waitress was attentive and brought our order quickly and cheerfully. The pizzas at Mimi's are excellent, as was my risotto con pollo. All the food is well priced and there is a good selection of wines-by-the glass. We have eaten here before and returned because it is close to where we live, and the food is very tasty. The owner was there both times and it shows his commitment to having an excellent eating establishment."

    Dined on 12/6/2013
  • "Hello. Excuses do not impress me. Our party of six ordered before the "rush" at ~11:50, when the restaurant was approximately 1/2 full. After several inquiries and apologies, our food showed up at 1:10. The food was adequate, but 80 minutes to get food is Unacceptable!"
