Diner Reviews
  • "First off, The service was KILLER. The food was amazing and although years back it may have been the trendy place, it now gets overlooked a bit. It should not. Mimma's was outstanding all the way around."

  • "Mimas had amazing food! Great seafood pasta options at a reasonable price, and the best part was the didnt skimp on the amount of seafood given. I got a stuffed lobster and crab ravioli dish that was amazing. Great service!"

  • "A quiet getaway from the hustle and bustle of Brady Street on a Saturday night. Relaxing ambience. Friendly staff. However, the food was disappointing. The bread before the appetizer was difficult to break apart, let alone enjoyable after the struggle. It was too chewy in the middle and was encompassed by a seemingly stale crust. The olive oil that came for dipping that we'd hoped would redeem the bread's disappointment tasted heavily of anchovies. The bruschetta did not appease our appetite either; the spices were far too overwhelming to be enjoyable. Thankfully our main dish of bowtie pasta, chicken sausage, red pepper flakes in a creamy sauce was satisfying."

  • "Making a reservation and arriving it was as if they already knew me. They placed us by the window, made it special as they could for us. They knew my first name and remembered it despite many other guests coming though. Treated us with respect and humor and everything one could hope for. The staff had zeal to serve. The owner made it a real place, not an impersonal eatery."

  • "This was our first time to Mimmas and we could not be happier. Great service, great food, great beer and wine selection. The menu was extensive so everyone in our group of 8 had no problem finding something they loved. Our server was extremely knowledgeable of the menu, the specials, and the wine and beer list. We will definitely be going back to Mimmas!"

  • "MY family had always raved about Mimmas. I took my 8 month pregnant wife there for her first mother's day. She had gnocchi and it was great. I had the special, skate wing; it was cooked perfectly. "
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "The whole night was just 'good', nothing great or wonderful about it. The food was good but nothing I'm excited to have again, very good flavor tho. The service was lacking and the server was very, very loud, not sure why he was screaming everything especially since it is a smaller place and everyone within 20 ft could hear him. It took 10 min to get our water and the normal menu as they only first provided us with the Mother's Day Special. All in all a decent night, not sure if I would NOT recommend it but it's not a place I'm itching to go back to."

  • "Mimma's is a great location for fantastic food. Expansive menu, but I almost always order one of the 6 or so specials. Chocolate dipped cannoli never fails to end the meal right. Great for special occasions or anytime you are near Brady Street!"

  • "Mimas was a great restaurant I will definitely be returning the staff was very pleasant and knowledgeable. Food was outstanding the only problem I had is that the kitchen was backed up our reservation was at 8 we got seated at about 830 and we didn't get our food until almost 10pm. Other than the wait for food everything was great."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "What a special evening...Mimma herself was cooking in the kitchen, so food was even better, even tasted the loving care she puts into each dish. Greeted, seated and cared for by the always charming wine aficionado Maria. A classic culinary fixture of Milwaukee. I have been dining here for 25 years and look forward to 25 more... Thank you!!!"

  • "Food was outstanding as usual, but, our waiter Will was overwhelmed, very understaffed.We had to wait 20 minutes For a dessert menu, need to have more staff on a busy evening."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "The restaurant was already in "scramble mode" by 6:30. Prior to making my reservation through OpenTable I called to confirm they would be serving the full menu, but then as we were taken to our table we were told that they were serving a fixed menu. The server was friendly and accommodating about serving the full menu, but over extended. I believe she was covering 10 tables. The host couldn't find a wine menu the entire evening even as new couples were sat down at tables around us. After giving up on getting a wine list, I ordered a cocktail that never came. Our meal was delivered moments after getting our salads. The whole experience felt rushed and as though we were cattle to be moved through the system."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "We have dined here dozens of times and on e again, our dinner was over the top! Mimma's is consistently great--the pasta dishes are numerous and the specials are always so unique and delishous without trying too hard. Mouth watering food. To die for!"

  • "With all the new restaurants in town, you sometimes overlook the established places where the quality and service remain consistent. Mimma cooks some of the best food in town. We were fortunate to discover a last minute open table on a Saturday night and had a great dining experience and lovely evening overall."
    Dined on 12/7/2013
  • "I'll call it timing. We had an amazingly vibrant waiter that knew everything about everything. Great recommendations and on his toes the entire time. The owner happened to be in, as well as members of her family. There was a lot of great conversations, plenty of great wine flowing and the night was ten fold thanks to the owners/family members and their engagement with my group and I."
    Dined on 12/6/2013
  • "We were warmly greeted by Mimma and our waiter William on a cold evening. We had 2 of the specials this evening. I had the Sicilian steak and my husband had the pork loin with a ham mousse wrapped in a puff pastry. Both were excellent. We have been coming to Mimma's for over 10 years now and have always had a great meal."

  • "Don't get me wrong, the waiter was incredibly friendly and did a great job but he was waiting on EVERY table in the restaurant on top of training another waitress. We walked in and were not greeted by the hostess. She hardly glanced up from her computer. After finishing whatever was SO important on her computer she looked up at us without a smile or friendly talk. As she escorted us to our table she didn't say follow me and she only walked two feet turned and said right here. There were 3 open table to where she pointed. I chose the wrong one as she yelled no that one and rolled her eyes at me. I later found out from the waiter the hostess was Mimma herself! Maybe she should become a silent owner."
