We are open! Come and join us and check out our beautiful new bar and dining area.
The foundation of good Italian cooking is the freshest of ingredients prepared with simplicity, bringing together flavors so no one ingredient overpowers another. Mimmo’s Italian roots begin in his hometown of Bagheria, Sicily. The fresh fruits and vegetables picked from his family’s farm were on the table, or tavola, that night. Our logo of the lemon and lemon flower, or zagara, is a symbol of Sicily’s rich history of growing and exporting lemons, and a reminder of Mimmo’s many memories of lemon picking in his grandfather’s groves.
APRIL 30TH 2022 IS OUR 10TH ANNIVERSARY! COME IN AND ENJOY A GLASS OF PROSECCO ON US TO CELEBRATE THIS MILESTONE.

    Delicious food. Love having linens. Would be nice if one room had carpet and more ambiance that reflects the quality of the food. I don’t always want to look at people in extremely casual (like I just mowed my lawn) attire while I’m dining.

    We love the food and service at Mimmo’s. What we do not like is they tend to seat the TWO of us next to large/loud parties. They need to rethink this. It’s not very comfortable for us, or other parties of 2. This is why we only visit about once a month.

    We ate early, at 5, because we had a little with us. When we arrived, we were greeted warmly, seated quickly, and our server was amazing. The drinks were strong, the food was really good (do not skip the Caesar salad!), and even the dessert was exceptional. Everyone loved their food. I was the only person who has some recommendations. The side of broccoli seemed to just be frozen broccoli florets warmed up. It’s so easy to roast or otherwise make broccoli taste better. And I had the fish special which came with skin on. I wish I had been told that because I’m that person who does not like skin on my fish. I will say that it was crisp skin, and I know many people would have loved it. I just wasn’t loving it. Everyone else loved their food and there were six of us. Our server was excellent, warm and friendly. He took my godson’s order quickly and was very good at navigating an order from a 4 year old. It took a long time for the check to come because as it got later, it got busy. Overall, we’d go back again. I’d ask a few more questions about the special though and request the check when we ordered dessert instead of after.

    First time at Mimmo’s and was very impressed with the service and food. I been to many Italian restaurants here in the desert and food is way over priced. Mimmo’s prices were great and menu had way more of a variety of food choices. I had the chicken Marsala with mashed potatoes and carrots. Not a fan of cooked carrots but Mimmo’s carrots were unique and delicious. Also want to give a special thank you to the restaurant’s bus staff. They were very attentive and pleasant. The waiter could of been nicer especially towards the bus staff.

    This restaurant clearly takes pride in providing good service. We felt cared for and valued as customers. I left feeling like I’d dined at a family Italian restaurant back in my hometown in CT. The food was excellent and the house Pinot Noir did not disappoint. Highly recommend.

    Tried this place for the first time and while the food was good and the service even better, the loud "modern" music from elsewhere in the strip center was annoying and was much louder than the soft jazz being played over the restaurant speakers. I guess our mistake was dining outside, but with my pre existing conditions I am still taking every precaution to not catch Covid.

    Mimmo's Italian RestaurantResponded on July 8, 2022Hello Thank you for your feedback, next time consider the covered patio, way less noisy or anyway let us know at reservation time or at the host station about this concern, we will try to find a solution for you

    We had a pre Father’s Day dinner. 2 teens and 2 parents. The adults had sole with mashed potatoes and carrots for the sides. The sole was perfect - the portions were on the smaller end, but the appetizer of bruschetta did fill us up - so it was fine with me. Our meals were finished off with a wonderful tiramisu, my husband had a delicious crème brûlee. The teens had pesto gnocchi and pesto spaghetti. Everything was good.

    I love Mimmos! We were the only two people sitting at the bar (Lolo was the bartender) Lolo was busy with orders from the restaurant but was never too busy for us. We dined from the bar menu which is quite a bargain! We started with the calamari and the wedge salad and then moved on to the sole and my husband. lasagna. If you are looking for a casual meal with excellent value this is the place! I highly recommend the bar. It's a cool vibe and friendly atmosphere.

    This was a wonderful experience. It had been a long time since we'd been here (before the expansion) and some had never been. Joe, our waiter, was superb. For some reason there was a long delay between first and second course but we were ok with that. This was the reason I gave 4 stars for service, but it was probably the kitchen. I highly recommend the mushroom soup. It was fantastic!!!!

    Usually the food is good. We always come here on more than 1 occasion when we visit Palm Desert however this time the spaghetti and meatballs was bland and quite tasteless. My son ordered it last time he was there and he said the same thing. The staff are always great and attentive. Mimo’s is clean and the noise level is appropriate . Their olive tamponade and bread is very delicious . I just won’t order spaghetti and meatballs again .

    Service was kinda slow but that may be due to staffing levels. Our waiter had two rooms of tables to take care of. Took 15 minutes to have our order taken and for some reason at least 10 minutes to bring the salads. Entrees were timely but the pork medallions were overcooked. My husband reported that his fish dish was excellent and melted in the mouth. Dessert also took some time to deliver. Salad portions were large as were the desserts. We were there for restaurant week but the regular menu was well priced and we will go there again to try some of their other items, not on the special menu.
