This was our last visit to Mimma's. She will be missed. Our final dinner there was as good as our first. William took great care of us. We are looking forward to Mimma's cooking show and watching to see where else she might pop up in the future.

A lot more expensive than we thought it would be.
One of the "Specials" was tilapia. We thought
that maybe a "Special" might be reasonably
priced, but WHOA! It was $27! The price was never given
to us until we got the tab at the end of the meal (we
didn't ask beforehand, which I guess is our fault.)
We were disillusioned, with what we read in the paper--
about Mimma retiring, after cooking for others for so many years.
And, the name included "Cafe", which gives the impression that it is
small and reasonably priced.
I suspect, that when Mimma retires, she will live VERY comfortably.
The absolute best part of the meal was our server (I think his name was Mark.)
He was very attentive, and made our experience more enjoyable.
(btw three drinks, an appetizer,,two meals and tip cost us $96--a little
steep for our tastes--being blue collar workers.)

It's very sad that one of Milwaukee's finest is closing at the end of the year. But the food and service is all was excellent and this establishment will be missed. Thank you for another rest meal and memory.

This is a Milwaukee treasure. Too bad you only have until New Year's Eve to enjoy this great restaurant one more time. God bless you Mimma. You too are a Milwaukee treasure.
