Took my wife for Valentine's dinner. She loves Italian and this definitely a hit. The staff was awesome, bar area is small but quaint and has a romantic flair. The resturant is beautiful and has a great atmosphere. The best part of our evening was the dinner we selected. We had the best food in a lo g time and the sauce was excellent.

Whenever I m in Baltimore dinner at Da Mimmo is a must. It never disappoints. The service was top notch. We started with a shared Apple salad. Very unique dressIng I had the veal chop (their signature dish) and it was delicious and cooked to perfection . My wife had the sea bass. Fresh, thick, flaky and served over pasta. She enjoyed it.

Prices were not out of line for fine dining in a city and we spent about the same as we would have in Morton’s or any other fine dining restaurant except that the service was way above average, the noice level was low, and there was good live music that was never too loud, just right.

Went there for restaurant week to try a new place. Even though we’ve all live here, we’ve never been to your restaurant. Surprised by a cozy intimate bar with a piano player. Will have to come back for that alone. The food was yummy and the dessert was even better. Although the veal marsala was delicious, the veal chop took the top rating for the evening. And don’t forget about the cheesecake.

We went for restaurant week after seeing the chef on WBAL. We enjoyed everything we ordered. We will be coming back to try different things on the menu. A big plus was their private parking lot across the street from the restaurant.

Da Mimmos Is one of Baltimore’s greatest restaurants. The consistency of excellent food and service through the years is fantastic. Their signature dish, a delicious veal chop, is without comparison.

Along with beautiful decor, knowledgeable waiters and our incredible host Mary Ann, Every evening we have spent there has been a pleasure and delight. There is also A very accomplished piano player and singer in the bar area to entertain the diners all evening.
We recommend the restaurant Immensely.

We went during restaurant week. The shrimp appetizer was delicious. The cheesecake wasn't the traditional New York style, in a way it was better-not so rich you couldn't finish it. Our main courses were all very good. Our waiter's timing was perfect but I got the feeling he wasn't pleased having to serve "restaurant week" people.

We celebrated New Year ev e with friends. One of our favorite Italian restaurant. Drinks at the bar before dinner. Soft piano was playing. Excellent bartender handled a busy restaurant very efficiently. Two of us enjoyed delicious apps and veal tenderloin for dinner. Reasonable wine list. Just an enjoyable evening.

OMG can they charge any higher prices for their food. I will not break down each item we had but I eat out at least twice a month at fine dining and am not cheap but please I had not been back to Da Mimmo for few years for New Years and will not be back. Don't get me wrong the food was very tasty and service was good but the prices were out of line for what we had. Did not order from fixed menu.

Very pleased with the food and the service. Only negative was that the menu price did not match what is on the web-site. Perhaps, if the prices were raised because of the holiday w/e, the website should be adjusted to reflect that. Otherwise, everything was wonderful.

Being a foodie and a patron on many high-end restaurants and this was by far the worst meal, we have experienced in years. I really do not oppose spending the money on a good meal and do so typically 3-4 times a month. I ordered Frutti di Mare, which was small portion for this dish, shrimp were literally raw, lobster overcooked and the squid was so overcooked it was rubber and being a special at $50, I expected much more from this establishment. Our waiter, whom I have seen here for at least 20-25 years just, no other words, sucked. Waited 5 minutes just to be addressed by a waiter, waited 10 minutes to place a 2nd drink order. When I addressed the issue of the raw shrimp and overcooked other items on my plate, I would have thought he would have made some adjustment to our check, since the raw shrimp were cut open visibly not cooked, even to a novice. The waiter never came to the table, after dinner was served, to check on us. The only service we had in this establishment that night was a very attentive bus boy, whom in my opinion would have been better than the waiter. I have been patronizing this establishment, since I was a little kid, when this was the happening night life place for dinner. Now at 55, I feel Ms. Criccho either needs to get back in the game of producing a decent product or spend more time promoting her travel tours to Italy. I do not think this establishment will be around much longer, based on the attendance Christmas Eve, which you could still get a table as a walk in.
There are too many good places to eat in Little Italy to waste your money on terrible service, overpriced food, which is not even proper cooked or lacks flavor. Try the old standbys of Germano's, Aldo, Sabatino's, Chiapparelli's or our favorite for the last two years, LaScala.
This is the 2nd time in the last six-months, which DaMimmo's produced an insufficient meal of quality or taste and I can definitely say I/we will not be back to this establishment again.

The food was good, but it was overpriced ($22.75 for lasagna, $4.00 PER SHRIMP to add it to fettucine alfredo). The service was good, the ambiance warm and charming, and the menu varied enough to cover pasta, chicken, veal, and beef. Da Mimmo is a Baltimore institution, and a must-do if you're checking off your "old school Little Italy restaurants" list, but be prepared to pay for the experience.

With all of the new restaurants that have opened or are opening in Baltimore, Da Mimmo is a hidden gem that folks need to get back to. The food is spectacular, the service is incredible and the overall feeling of a genuine appreciation that you're there is one you don't get in a lot of places. My advice to those looking for a either a special night out or just want to go and get a wonderful, authentic meal, or want to sit in a cozy lounge with music, don't get caught up with the "shiny new object" of the latest place opening. Get over to Da Mimmo see for yourself why they've been around so long, and are a longtime favorite of many. Great job to the owner, Mary Ann Cricchio and her dedicated staff. I can't wait to get back.

First of all, if you are looking for trendy food or decor, don't eat here. I laugh every time I read a review of an "old-school" place that whines about it being... old-school. We just like good food, and Da Mimmo still does a great job in that regard, but their service has slipped considerably. On both of my previous visits (once with my husband, once with my best friend) I felt genuine warmth from the staff as well as pride in their work. This time around, our server was standing at the door when I walked in and asked very gruffly "Are you with the party?" I replied no and said my husband was parking the car, so he asked again "ARE you with the PARTY?" Apparently a large group had rented the upstairs dining room, but not the best way to greet a guest. Our table was in the main dining area and was fine until a couple of larger parties came in and proceeded to shout over one another for much of our meal. During dinner, I had a lot to tell my husband as I'd just come back from a trip, but our server proceeded to interrupt me mid-word at least five times. His demeanor throughout the meal was very condescending and it seemed he couldn't wait to get rid of us. Given that our tab (1 salad, 1 order of calamari, 1 frutti di mare, 1 swordfish special, 1 moderately-priced bottle of wine, and 1 after-dinner drink for each of us) came to $237 before tip, we'd hoped to be treated a bit more graciously. We might give Da Mimmo another chance, but it will be a while before we do so.

We arrived early and had a drink in the cocktail lounge. We were pleasantly surprised to find a woman singing and playing the piano which we thoroughly enjoyed. We even went back after dinner and had a drink and listened some more. Excellent spot in Little Italy and we especially love it because they have their own parking lot located conveniently across the street.

We had a wonderful meal. I'm sorry we ordered the clams casino. It was the only part of the meal we did not really enjoy. They should remove it from the menu. Next time I will try the open faced ravioli - it comes highly recommended as we found out after the meal. We will definitely go back again. The veal chop is delicious and huge. It was way too much for 1 person.

This is a better than you'd expect for the Italian Section of BMore. Loved this place. Crabmeat cocktail appetizer still served in glass 2 piece bowl and cup with a live goldfish in the bowl. That's a favorite touch that I remember from years ago. Traditional menu - all well done. Wine list is appropriate for the venue - not too pricey and not too arduous to get through. Enjoy this place!
